The band took the stage to open their two-set headlining performance with “Jaywalking” and “Burn Them”. The high energy of the first set kept rolling with “Doing’ My Time” and “Dry County”, which transitioned into the band’s fan-favorite covers of Pink Floyd‘s “Time” and “Breathe Reprise”. Following a return to “Doin’ My Time” and a brief rest, the music continued with “Collateral Damage” and “The Radio Blues” before the band welcomed violinist Bobby Britt to help play on David Grisman‘s “E.M.D. (Eat My Dust)”. The set came to a close with “I’m Working on a Building” and “Gumboots”.

The second half of the show saw the band return to the stage for performances of “Windshield” and “Take Cover” before they moved into a cover of Fleetwood Mac‘s “The Chain”. The set continued with “Cathedral Eyes”, “Worried About the Weather”, “Room Without a Roof”, and wrapped with “Just to Lie” into “Don’t Lie”. The show came to a close with an encore performance of “Money for Nothing”.
Greensky’s winter tour continues on Sunday night with a performance at the Roxian Theatre in McKees Rocks, PA. Head to the band’s website for tickets and tour info.
