Widespread Panic plays a Halloween encore

Widespread Panic renewed an old tradition Thursday night by returning to their old stomping grounds in New Orleans for yet another Halloween night show at UNO’s Lakefront Arena.

The show featured eight songs the band had never played before, a couple of JJ Cale covers and a memorable and surprising cover of The Strangeloves “I Want Candy,” among other highlights.

As for costumes: JB went as Spock from Star Trek, Jimmy dressed as a biker, Dave Schools was a zombie, JoJo doubled down, going as Kenny Powers for one set and Liberace for another, Sunny was a chef (?) and Todd went as King Tut. The stage design was an Egyptian pyramid setup.

All in all, one helluva night and further affirmation that these guys continue to fire on all cylinders on a nightly basis in 2013. Continue below for the setlist and a photo gallery from the show.
