My Morning Jacket on Thursday continued a three-night Texas run with an energetic performance at The Factory in Deep Ellum in Dallas.
Following a fantastic opening set by singer-songwriter/folk-rocker Madison Cunningham, MMJ took the stage and kicked off the Dallas festivities with “Regularly Scheduled Programming”, the opening track from the band’s self-titled 2021 LP. The lead-off song proved to add a touch of incidental irony as Jim James and company worked through a largely different setlist than fans saw in Houston the previous evening.
Of course, the Jacket still made sure to “play the hits.” A memorable encore segment featured joyous performances of classics like “Victory Dance”, “Gideon”, “Wasted”, and “One Big Holiday”. This “Gideon”, in particular, seemed to encapsulate the exciting state of MMJ in 2022. With its boundless outro jam and emotive Carl Broemel guitar solo, this longtime live staple exuded the same fresh, fervent enthusiasm that radiated from both the stage and the audience all night long.
