Currently, the funk gurus of Lettuce are at the tail end of their fall 2018 Wavelength tour, which started on September 20th and spans until this weekend with a run across the Midwest. Over the weekend, the fan-favorite funk act was in the South, with a festival performance at Pittsboro, NC’s Fall Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival on Saturday ahead of a headlining Sunday night show at Charleston, SC’s Music Farm.
For the Charleston show, the band laid out an exceptional one-set performance, highlighting the group’s increasing desire to extend and savor psychedelic jams. Opening with “Blast Off”, off 2008’s Rage!, the group worked through a number of their classic tunes for the Charleston crowd. The opening “Blast Off” saw one of the longest jams of the night, with the rendition clocking in at 11 minutes. However, another major highlight of the evening was at 17-minute take on “Yakatori” toward the tail end of the show. Other highlights included an electrifying take on “Get Greasy” off 2015’s Crush and a standout rendition of “House”, a new song debuted last fall that has been solidifying itself within the Lettuce catalog.
