Nigel Hall Band + Galactic with David Shaw – Indianapolis, IN @ The Vogue Theater 4/4/13

On a recent Thursday night, I headed up to Indianapolis to one of my favorite venues in the region, The Vogue Theater (look for more videos in a few months after I catch Mos Def at this venue!)

Nigel Hall Band

The opening act was the Nigel Hall Band, which featured Adam “Shmeeans” Smirnoff and Erick “Jesus” Coomes (from Lettuce) and Jermal Watson (from The Dirty Dozen Brass Band). I walked in and got set up a few minutes late, but you can watch most of the set right here.

Galactic never disappoints. This evening they brought vocalist David Shaw (from The Revivalists) and they pulled out several interesting covers. Below you’ll find an edited video with the most interesting covers, and below that you’ll find the complete two hour set in 2 parts. If you’re unfamiliar with David Shaw or The Revivalists just look below for a few videos from Fiyawerx Productions annual Jazz Fest parties.
