Beloved jam group moe. has announced plans to return to New York City, hitting the Midtown venue PlayStation Theater on July 21st. As the show is scheduled during the first night of Phish’s newly announced thirteen night residency, moe. will be performing in the late night spot, treating fans to some post-Phish jammed out action. Their show is set to begin at 12:30 AM.
The band’s last trip to NYC also occurred at the PlayStation Theater, when they visited the city for a three-night run last March. As moe. hails from Buffalo, the band has always found a second home within the Big Apple. Perhaps there is no greater evidence of this than their song “New York City,” in which they sing, “New York City, I’m coming home again!”
moe. is currently on a winter tour, which started aboard Jam Cruise and wrapped around to venues throughout the Southeast. The band has been working some Allman Brothers material into their setlists, including recent covers of “Southbound” and “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed,” as well as a subtle politically themed setlist with transitions like “Captain America > Mexico.”
The band continues their tour tonight, January 31st, and has a lot of big plans set for 2017, including the return of moe.down Music Festival. Between that event, scheduled tours, and this newly announced performance in NYC, there’s no telling just how big moe. is going to go in 2017! We’re excited. You can find details here.
