Widespread Panic 

When: Fri., Oct. 4 2013
Holding the record for the most sold out shows at Red Rocks — 42 in case you were wondering — and fresh off the Interlocken Music Festival with Creedence Clearwater Revival’s John Fogerty, veteran jammers Widespread Panic will bring their extended guitar solos, jammy keyboard, and bluesy bass sounds back to the Lowcountry. “It was incredible for me personally — a full circle moment — some of the first music I ever heard was [Creedence Clearwater Revival] and his [Fogerty’s] voice was the first rock ‘n’ roll voice I ever heard,” says WSP bassist Dave Schools. “My parents bought me their records when I was 4, so for it to come full circle and hear his voice and be on stage with him, it was wonderful.” At their two shows at Daniel Island’s Family Circle Cup Stadium, Panic fans can participate in WSP’s ongoing Feeding People Through Music Food Drive by donating canned food or cash before they start noodling — or dancing like a wet noodle (think lots of swaying). South Bend, Ind. natives Umphrey’s McGee will start the night off, and they’ll hopefully play some jams from their recently released album, Death by Stereo. The album is Umphrey’s first studio release since 2009 and adds a new twist of heavier electric guitar sounds and electronic music elements to the band’s familiar jammy tunes. Put on your best tie-dye, but don’t get there too early, because tailgating, camping, and overnight parking are no-nos.
