The Fillmore Charlotte welcomed the return of jam/rock band greats, Moe., on Friday night.
The five piece band gave the crowd a treat with two sets. They opened with “Plane Crash,” and the song contains lyrics such as “I get too f***ing high” which was appropriate, since the venue was thick with the aroma of marijuana burning.
Moe. brings amazing live improvisation to their shows which always attracts fans to follow them on tour. While the crowd was mostly older, they were various in where they had traveled from including cities in South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Florida.
The band rarely tours farther down than Atlanta. They finished the first set with crowd favorites such as “Opium” and “Paper Dragon.”
The real face-melting started at the second set though with “Brent Black,” “CalifornIA” and “Silver Sun.” Fans were high-fiving each other and while other bands engulf the audience to break it down on the dance floor, the sexy tunes by moe., just make you want to sway and groove slowly.
The improvisation keeps you intrigued at what melodies will come next.
And of course, the lights are just so damn pretty. They kicked the energy up a notch for encores “Low” and “Wicked Awesome.”
Moe. proclaimed to the audience, “Charlotte is our home away from home and it feels good to be back.” The crowd returned its thanks by rocking with them all night long.
