It had been a couple of years since the Bay Area got a proper Widespread Panic run, and that patience was rewarded with massive early-Spring tour along the West Coast. The first of two nights at Oakland’s Fox Theater featured a well-oiled band playing to a rather ravenous crowd of locals and out-of-towners. The photos and stacked setlist speak for themselves.
