Gov't Mule @ The Beacon 12/31/11

It was a great show.  I must admit I enjoyed the night before a little more.  I don't know the Joe Cocker album, but I just looked it up now.  I know I wasn't crazy about Nigel Hall being up there.  The horns had their moments, but I wish Warren would find some others, they are somewhat weak in my opinion.  There's got to be better options in this city.  Matt came off the kit at one point to sing.  The 3rd set was very short.  The Beacon has become full of tight rules and isn't that great anymore.  They were giving people a hard time if they were in a different seat from their ticket stub - even if they were in the same row as their stub.  It seemed very overboard and unnecessary.
