widespreadpanicnightone @Rob_Shore This is the first year that 10klf has acts on the main stage on Wednesday night. Widespread Panic played the first of their two headlining shows to a pretty sparse crowd on opening night. It’s not too surprising considering the long travel days involved with getting to Detroit Lakes, MN. I didn’t have too much energy myself after driving all night to get here and only squeezing in about a two hour nap.

 

I had only seen Panic twice before Wednesday night’s show, and only once since Jimmy Herring joined the band. Adding a talent like Herring is reason enough to see them more often. Every time he plays it seems like he’s stealing the show. Between his smooth flowing style and the great tone he gets from his Fuchs amp, it’s almost impossible not to watch him the whole show. I might have too, if not for my love of great bass playing and how good Dave Schools is. He flies up and down the carbon fiber neck of his Modulus Quamtum 6 all night to keep the groove flowing. He even steps it up when he needs to with that bass tone that knocks you off your feet a little bit.

 

“Bear’s Gone Fishin'” was the highlight of set one for me. It’s one of the first Widespread songs I ever heard, and the bass line is one of my favorites to play. They sounded great as John Bell belted out the chorus and Herring noodled along as he does so well. A few more great jams including some amazing Herring solos and set one came to an end.

 

Having only slept three hours in the previous two days, I decided it was time to head back to camp to rest up for a late night Kinetix set. I didn’t feel too bad leaving knowing there were two more sets of Panic coming on Friday. The nice thing about camping right behind the main stage is we can hear the music form our campsite. We listened to set two from there. There wasn’t a whole lot that sounded interesting aside from Herring’s guitar whaling through the trees and what sounded like a great version of “Climb to Safety.” I’m glad we got some main stage entertainment on Wednesday night, but it seemed like Panic was saving up for the big show on Friday.
