Thankfully because St. Augustine was not as severely affected as other Florida cities, Widespread Panic was able to still perform their scheduled dates. So, the band took the opportunity to ask that fans help the community by bringing non-perishable foods and monetary donations for Feeding Northeast Florida all weekend long. Donations can also be made here.Widespread Panic’s return to St. Augustine made for a momentous occasion nonetheless, as the band came in with a whole new line of merchandise dedicated to the tropical setting. It was their musical contribution, however, that meant the most to the Florida city. With standard covers of Jerry Joseph, Bob Dylan, Little Women, Van Morrison, Alan Price, Blind Faith, and Bobby Rush mixed into the two-set show, Widespread Panic’s setlist seemed to spell out a message to their Floridian fans during the first set with songs like “Climb To Safety,” “Proving Ground,” “Pickin’ Up The Pieces,” “Solid Rock” and “Chainsaw City” to commemorate the intense, scary, community-building week that preceded the concert. While millions of people remain without power and thousands of homes damaged, the state of Florida remains unsettled. Big thanks to Widespread Panic for coming to the rescue with their music and charitable actions.Check out the fan-shot video from last night’s show below, courtesy of Fred Ramadanlast_img
