Floodwood, featuring members of Moe., kicks it at DBGB's Thursday!

Jam-Grass "supergroup" Floodwood - featuring Al Schnier and Vinnie Amico of Buffalo-born jam-band supreme Moe. - took over Duke's Bohemian Grove Bar in Allentown on Thursday evening. A packed house was treated to twin killer sets of jam-tinged bluegrass music. The jams themselves were exhilirating improvisational sections that built steadily to exuberant crescendoes, and urged the crowd to perform a charming blend of hippe-dance and hoe-down. Too cool. An opening set from the Ali Critelli Trio - soulful singer Critelli, percussionist Corey Kertzie, and guitarist Jamie Holka - got the crowd in the mood. The wonderful Slip Madigan was scheduled to close the evening well into the wee small hours, but I can;t report on that - I had to bail. Hey, even I have to sleep sometimes! A fantastic night of music. Here's a few pics.
