Touring behind their most recent album, 2017's Revolution Come...Revolution Go. Gov't Mule brought their show to the beautiful, historic Lyric Theatre on Tuesday night for the first show of two in Birmingham, Alabama. Although I've seen Warren and co. many times before. The Lyric Theater was made to maximize acoustics with the close seating feel it has in an intimate venue. The restoration was breathtaking. There's a saying amongst Widespread Panic fans. “Never miss a Sunday show”. Well never miss a Gov't Mule show at the Lyric.
The full moon turned out lots of amazing events for the night. Amazing set (see below), front row seats, and two guitar picks. I couldn't ask for a more memorable music experience. The venue's acoustics, Warren's rugged, feels like home voice, amazing friends old and new made my soul shine last night.
The band's final show on this 13-date tour will end November 3rd, but the highly anticipated Mule-O-Ween show at The Tabernacle will be in Atlanta on October 27th. You don't want to miss that!
