Widespread Panic Wood Tour and why Aspen Blows

Widespread Panic has announced a short series of acoustic "Wood" shows to cap their 25th anniversary celebration that has been rolling all year. Folllowing some dates out East, plans are for a three night run at the Fillmore in Denver for us commoners, followed by an exclusive run in Aspen, CO, at the Belly Up Tavern, with tickets for each evening starting at $350.

While an all acoustic set sounds cool, I can't help but think of the winter run they did through Colorado back in '96, when they would play one set acoustic and one plugged in. Some of my favorite tapes are from these dates, and I am sure that tickets were not in the $350 range at that time.

Ahh, Aspen. I hope shit like this is not a trend, or at least one that does not extend beyond the circle of non-relaity that Aspen is part of.
