moe. wrapped up a successful two-night run at the Saranac Brewery last night, playing to a local crowd at the beloved Utica, NY venue. After a couple weeks off of the road, the energy during moe.’s two night run was through the roof, and culminated in a wild celebration for last night’s performance.The band started the run by playing some fun covers, including a bust-out of Grateful Dead’s “The Other One” in the middle of their original “Silver Sun.” You can watch that here. Night two saw the group mostly sticking to originals (with the exception of House of Pain’s “Jump Around,” led by percussionist Jim Loughlin), opening with “Seat Of My Pants” and rocking out classics like “Spine Of A Dog,” “Not Coming Down,” “Wormwood,” and more. They ended set one with “McBain,” and you can watch a clip of the jam below.After a great “Happy Hour Hero” opened set two, the band broke into their classic “Bearsong.” This version saw the band literally dump dozens of inflatable bears onto the crowd, only fueling the fires of a great jam session. Watch as it all goes down below!After “Jump Around,” the band worked in classics like “Tailspin,” “Opium,” and “lylelovitt.” to keep the set rocking. After a foray into “Downward Facing Dog,” the band capped the set with a version of “32 Things.” Finally, it was “Buster” that concluded the night, keeping the jams alive through one of moe.’s most beloved songs!Check out the full setlist from Saranac below, courtesy of the band.Setlist: moe. at Saranac Brewery, Utica, NY – 7/30/16I: Seat Of My Pants, Big World > Ricky Marten > Spine Of A Dog > Not Coming Down > Wormwood > Okayalright, McBainII: Happy Hour Hero, Bearsong > Jump Around > Tailspin, Opium > lylelovitt., Downward Facing Dog > 32 ThingsEncore: Buster
