Gov't Mule @ Mahalia Jackson Theatre, NOLA 4/30/10

A great show in a nice theatre. It felt nice in there and the general admission aspect made it possible for me to spend most of the show in the 3rd row right in front of Warren. The spot was even sweeter due to being a step higher than the first 2 rows. It was probably the best spot I've ever had for a Mule show, and I've had some good ones.

They were great. Mule at their best. They played quite a few covers and teased some others. We had a phenomenal Eric Krazno sit in toward the end. After that, they brought out Brian Stoltz. Later, I think at the encore, we got Brian and Ivan Neville.

The theatre is a huge improvement over the CAC. Unfortunately, it's very corporate. It took forever to get a drink. They actually had to pour each can of beer into a plastic cup, which was absurd. At least they let you buy and walk away with the plastic water bottle, cap and all.
