Today, Widespread Panic has released the 34th edition of the band’s on-going Porch Songs archive.For this new edition of the two-track live series, Widespread Panic has released the group’s performance at Brick Breeden Fieldhouse in Bozeman, Montana, on November 10th, 2000.As noted by the band:So why Bozeman? Well, like previous selections from this particular tour (see Carbondale and Asheville), there was an especially unique energy (not to mention shows tapers and collectors keep returning tour to nearly twenty years later). Bozeman seems like it would be an unassuming stop in the farther reaches of “spreadhead-dom”, but in fact is a prime example of why so many fans went the distance to follow the band during this period and find that extraordinary experience.The group also called out the following highlights from the album:“Heroes” opener“Stop-Go” jam“Pigeons” > “Drums”Deep and ominous “Astronomy Domine” jam“Can’t Find My Way Home” > “Makes Sense To Me” encoreIn the release notes, the band also notes that ideally, Bozeman 2000 would have been released as full multi-track recording, though “unfortunately some recording errors on those tapes that could not be corrected.”You can purchase the latest Porch Songs release, Widespread Panic’s show from Bozeman, Montana, on November 10th, 2000, via LiveWidespreadPanic.com.Widespread Panic is fresh off a two-night run in Birmingham, AL this past weekend.
