The Mule Still Kicks Ass: Gov't Mule at Sunshine

Legendary blues-rock jam band Gov’t Mule gallops into Sunshine Theater (120 Central SW) tomorrow night for an all-ages celebration of Southern rock. A staple of every music fest that matters, the Mule has collaborated with a wide, impressive range of artists including Grace Potter, Elvis Costello and Myles Kennedy. The group’s signature sound combines Crosby, Stills & Nash’s “Southern Cross” and Bob Seger’s “Turn the Page” with a hearty dose of deep-fried blues.

Two decades into the game, Gov't Mule's haunting, lonesome guitar melodies and funky jam-sesh style still effectively and unpretentiously showcase these wildly talented musicians. Warren Haynes' deep, gravel-strewn voice vibrates the very soul. Alongside drummer Matt Abts, keyboardist Danny Louis and bassist Jorgen Carlsson, Gov't Mule can (and will) rock you all night long. Expect to hear songs from their latest (16th!) double-LP Shout!, plus epic tracks like “Banks of the Deep End,” “Beautifully Broken” and “Lola Leave Your Light On.” This gloriously gritty gathering kicks off at 8pm, and presale tickets are $29.
