Now, rested and ready, Widespread Panic is back, touring its usual haunts this spring and summer and even winning a spot alongside the "alternative" acts on this year's truncated version of Lollapalooza. Sure, some of Widespread's hardcore fans may still fit the common stereotype of jam-band followers, dressing with a crunchy granola fashion sense and obsessing endlessly over set lists. But with Southern roots and the accompanying influences of soul, blues and funk, Widespread's music is a good deal grittier than many other bands in the genre, as likely to appeal to fans of the Allman Brothers or the Meters as to Deadheads and Phish-philes.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., show at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $29.50; call Metrotix at 314-534-1111.
