UPDATE: Widespread Panic tour recap, photos, and hear sets online

Widespread have taken over where the Dead left off with the jams.
I was amazed to see so many heads follow them from show to show!
The Panic are amazing musicians who enjoyed blending out of my DJ
sets – joining in on the turntables and rocking a jam off my last record.
They’re the coolest rocks stars I know, the fans are very open minded
musically and they love to PARTY. Check my top 15 below for a typical
set, or listen to any of the audio links and hear me jam with the band:
Here are some cool photos from the stage, backstage, & crowd shots:

“Not a problem.” I’ve only been here for four days and I’m already picking up on the local slang and phrases. I kind of feel retarded doing it, but i cant help myself. Sunday was a day of full on grinding. After my last blog, we headed down to the Forum, where our first show was. This was the most beautiful concert venue’s i’ve been in, the decor was in the vibe of an old school roman forum. Capacity was about 1,400 and it filled up quickly. Here’s a shot of the decor, it’s a little dark but the best my camera could do..

Zeph & Azeem represented the Bay Area for a full crowd…

After the show we headed to the merch table to sign autographs. The vibe was dope and fans kept running up to show their support…

Another busy day on Monday, we had some of the most important interviews of the trip. Both Zeph and Azeem had two seperate engagements for the Zane Rowe show. Zeph recorded a mix live that aired at 10pm later that night. Here he is with the triple JJJ sound engineer below…

Azeem prerecorded his interview with Zane Rowe herself. She had Azeem pick 5 songs where he thought the lyrics were poetic and discuss. The interview went very well….Azeem with Zane Rowe.

The Triple JJJ studios actually was in the ABC Broadcast building, but don’t get confused it is the Australian Broadcast Company. Here is a shot of the studio hallway..

Since, i’ve been here i noticed how environmentally aware the population is here. Walking about town you see all kinds of signs reminding people to conserve engery etc. In the hotels you have to stick your room card in a wall slot to even turn on the power in the room. This sign was posted in the ABC studios…

After the interviews, we headed to the Illusive HQ, where several business including Mushroom Publishing, Frontier Touring, Acclaim Magazine, Illusive Entertainment and Liberator are run. Here’s the address on the side of the building…

Here’s their conference room. I was highly impressed with their set up. Apparently the company that we are working with has been responsible for some of the biggest tours that have ever hit Australia including The Eagles, Justin Timberlake and Madonna.

Here’s an autographed board from Madonna, referred as one of their most prized possessions.

It’s now Tuesday and I’m on my way to Perth. I’m excited to get there as it supposed to have a very similar vibe to west coast of the states if you know what i mean. We basically have a show every night till the end of the tour, so it’s now crunch time. I have to run off and get a new charger for my shaver…not sure if i mentioned that it blew up in the hotel bathroom.
