The Wetlands Preserve was a historic concert venue located in the TriBeCa section of New York City. It opened in 1989 and closed in 2001, much to the dismay of the late night music lovers in NYC. For the 25th anniversary of the venue, moe. played two nights at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. The Capitol Theatre is owned by Peter Shapiro, who took over the Wetlands in 1997.
Above you can watch pro-shot video of moe. performing "Akimbo" with John Medeski on Hammond Organ, Fuzz (from Deep Banana Blackout) on guitar, and the Conehead Buddha Horns. The song is part Frank Zappa and part jamband chaos, with carefully orchestrated sections as well as complete open freedom for the musicians to improvise. Fuzz plays a pretty nasty guitar solo, as does Chuck. Medeski also plays a rippin' keyboard solo. The whole performance is super high energy, as Vinnie on drums and Rob on bass are on fire for the whole 10 minutes.
