Happy Mule-o-Ween!

To sum up Mule-o-Ween, let’s just say that Mule rocked the Tower harder than its been rocked in some time, and probably harder than it will be for a long time to come. Warren Haynes knows how to deliver for the holidays and he was on fire all night long, like a man possessed. The band decided to switch things up this year from the previous Halloweens – this time taking on the Rolling Stones musical cover for the 1st set and bringing it home with straight un-cut Mule for Set 2.

Over the course of the evening, we got an inspired and picture-perfect Stones musical costume, a nice showcase of new songs from the recently released By a Thread, and a truly epic Brighter Days>Blind Man in The Dark and Goin’ Out West>Bang a Gong>Goin’ Out West old school close-out to the show. Many have said that Warren Haynes is the hardest working man in the jam scene, well let me just say he leads by example and I’m consistently amazed with Mule’s ability to bring it, night after night, like a ram that just won’t stop. I highly recommend giving this one a listen, you won’t regret it.
