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

Warren can play the blues!  He just continually impressed me in that 2nd set.  First set was short so that the 2nd set could be extra long. 

I could do without the Chronic Horns.  I think they could go down to New Orleans and get anyone and have more effective horns.  There were some good solos and they weren't bad, like the first year I saw them with Mule on the NYE run.  But, I'm disappointed they don't get more powerful horns.  Anyway, they certainly don't hurt, it's just they don't do much for the show.  It didn't really matter since the music was so good.

I did enjoy the 30th a little more, but it was a good night and a good show.
