Widespread Panic Halloween Show to be Broadcast on iClips
Stuck at home for Halloween with no show plans (like me)? Load up a bong, grab a friend, tell the trick-or-treaters to scram and fire up the intertubes, where Widespread Panic's bound-to-be-epic Halloween show from the UNO Lakefront Arena in New Orleans will be broadcast live on iClips. Showtime is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. CDT.
I saw my first Panic Halloween show with Dr. Pauly and the joker back in 2006 when they followed up their performance at Vegoose with a show at the MGM Grand. Naturally, half the audience was in costumes and we were no exception-- the doctor in his requisite scrubs, me at his side in a nurse getup complete with the little pointy hat, and the joker in his legendary UPS deliveryman outfit, handing out packages to Spreadheads. Panic pulled out covers of Morning Dew, She's So Heavy, and R.E.M.'s Can't Get there from Here that night. Oh yeah, and J.B. was wearing a chicken suit the whole time. The man loves his chicken.
Can't wait to see what the boys will pull out this year. Safe travels to all you lucky fucks heading down to NOLA!
