Fox Theater Oakland — Oakland, CA

Yonder Mountain String Band’s annual West Coast Spring tour has become highly anticipated by those who live on the left-side of the country. Moving from the more-intimate Fillmore to the grandiosity of the Fox Theater in Oakaland saw the 4-piece playing a more in-depth and technical set. With the venue not quite filled to capacity, it allowed the well-lubed crowd to expand their fancy bluegrass dance-moves while the expanded songs were plucked onstage. Highlights included a massive KOG/Oklahoma/Casualty sandwich to close out the first set, and a “Piece of Mind” that included Talking Head’s classic “Girlfriend Is Better” and Yonder stalwart “Riverside”. Though the days of Yonder at the tiny Connecticut Yankee are long gone, the band still finds a way to create intimacy, even in the Bay’s biggest rooms.
