New Years 2008 Highlights

The excitement of a live New Year's show is the unexpected.  Knowing that it is impossible to attend every New Year's Eve Show, here are what I would consider highlights from 12/31/08 shows.

My Morning Jacket played Madison Square Garden and played a couple of fun covers:  The Wanderer by Dion and the Belmonts, Islands in the Sea by Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers

The Disco Biscuits played The Nokia Theatre and were joined by everyone's favorite Rasta Jew Matisyahu for Magellan.

Yes, I know that Phil, Ratdog, Panic and others are notably missing.  They may have played great shows, even Phil, Bobby & Jon's "Work in Progress" set was a typical set list, and this post was for the things that make NYE unique.

Happy New Year!
