Concert Reviews

Mike Gordon at the Ogden, 3/14/11

MIKE GORDON
03.14.11 | Ogden Theatre

Last night, just a week after Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio took the same stage, bassist Mike Gordon brought the funk to the Ogden Theatre with a little help from Ian Neville's Dumpstaphunk. Unlike Anastasio, Gordon doesn't pepper his set list with Phish covers. Instead, he uses his solo tours and concerts as an opportunity to highlight the music he writes away from Phish. The shows are also an opportunity for Gordon, who admittedly plays a supporting role in Phish, to take center stage with a band.
