moe. has been on a tear during their recent fall tour run, playing night after night of power-packed jam performances. Riding the wave of musical energy, moe. took to their hometown of Buffalo, NY, playing the first of two sold-out shows at the Town Ballroom in style.Recently, moe. performed a full set tribute to Pink Floyd at the Peach Festival (listen here), and has since been working their songs into setlists throughout this fall tour. We’ve seen renditions of “Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2” and “Fearless” thus far, but last night’s version of “Comfortably Numb” might take the cake. Chuck Garvey plays his heart out during the guitar solo, recreating the David Gilmour melody with a tenacity.Fortunately there’s full fan-shot video of the cover for us to enjoy. Check it out below, courtesy of Nathan Wiseman.Of course, “Comfortably Numb” was only one of many, many highlights from the whole show. It was one of only two covers last night, as moe. focused on their originals and the improvisation within them. With big versions of “Buster” and “meat.,” not to mention the encore of Frank Zappa’s “Cosmik Debris,” this night was loaded with high-energy grooves from moe.Check out the band’s full setlist, below.Setlist: moe. at Town Ballroom, Buffalo, NY – 10/1/16I: Rainshine, Jazz Wank > Buster > Lazarus > George > Comfortably Numb > BusterII: Lost Along The Way, Blond Hair And Blue Eyes, meat. > Akimbo > Silver Sun > Seat Of My Pants > Meat.Encore: Cosmik Debris[Photo via Tara Gracer Photography from Chicago, IL]

The TV channel for a NASCAR race is elusive enough in a normal season when Fox and FS1 trade broadcasts of Cup Series events through the first half of the schedule before NBC and NBCSN take over for the second half. The schedule shake-up associated with the coronavirus pandemic make the “what channel is today’s NASCAR race on” question even more understandable.For the second time this season, NASCAR is entering a Saturday-Sunday doubleheader as part of those schedule changes, this time at Michigan International Speedway.
