Dopapod has shared a live video of the band linking up “Velcro” and “Picture In Picture”, taken from its Tuesday performance at 123 Pleasant Street in Morgantown, WV.
“Velcro” came in the two-slot of set one after the show-opening “Turnin’ Knobs”. The sticky funk bounce of “Velcro” got the entire ensemble of Eli Winderman (keys), Rob Compa (guitar), Chuck Jones (bass), and Neal “Fro” Evans (drums) in on the action. Winderman eventually ran away with the show, exploring the outer depths of his Moog synthesizer before landing on a more traditional keyboard tone to take things down a notch.
The ballroom ambiance of the jam soon took a turn down south as Compa teased Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s “Simple Man”. Building back up from scratch, the band navigated through a litany of moods—from dancey to headbanging and everything in between—before arriving at the thumpy stomp of “Picture In Picture”. The lengthy jam that followed saw more rhythm building from the quartet as they improvised from the ground up. The open-ended exploration eventually reached a fever pitch with Compa leading the group to a fiery crescendo following the final verse.
