In the eighteenth century, James Hutton came up with a theory that revolutionized the science of geology, ‘The present is a key to the past’. But could the past also be a guide to our future? The world three million years ago was warmer than present. What might it tell us about global climate change in the near future?
As Spafford stormed through the Midwest this past fall, fans were treated to high energy performances filled with exciting improvisational excursions. The band was firing on all cylinders as they made their heavily anticipated first stop in Milwaukee, WI at The Mirarmar Theatre. Fans were treated to a performance packed with jams, some very well placed covers, and a particularly unique setlist.Fortunately, the band has delivered a pro-shot video of one of the major highlights. The band took one of their powerhouse jam vehicles, “Walls”, and paired it with a classic jazz standard “Made For Wesley” to form a beautiful jam sandwich in the first set.Enjoy the 20 plus minute throwdown in the form of “Walls > Made for Wesley > Walls” below!Up next for the band is two big nights in New York, NY, playing on December 30th and 31st at American Beauty alongside The Magic Beans for some Phish after parties. They’ll then hit the road alongside Umphrey’s McGee, with headlining dates of their own as well.
