There were a couple of festivals this Labor Day weekend. One of them was moe.down in Mohawk, NY and you’ll be hearing plenty of recordings from that below. The other one was the North Coast Music Festival in Chicago and while we’ve seen plenty of video pop-up, it’s been pretty light to non-existent on the audio recordings.
You can download all of this week’s audio in one easy to listen to MP3 that we call the Last Week’s Sauce Podcast, click here to download.

moe.down always does a great job of bringing in a few non-jambands to round out their talent. This segment of songs features a little extra help from the baking musicians whereas the video embedded below is during the portion of their set that was stricly duo-style. The Black Keys play tomorrow at the Virginia Beach Amphitheater.

In case you missed it, earlier this week Mike Gordon announced a big tour that will immediately follow Phish’s fall run. Cactus took the opportunity to debut his own band’s version of Idea which previously made an appearance on the Phish stage in Portsmouth, VA this summer. Much like Sugar Shack, Idea sounds much more rehearsed with Mike’s band than it does with Phish.
