Father John Misty has also performed with Goose. Goose has also sold out Red Rocks.
The opening act was Lawrence featuring siblings Clyde and Gracie Lawrence. Like any traditional jam band the show was broken into two sets and there was a lot of dancing and lengthy songs. Goose opened with “California Magic” and were joined by singing duo Lucius for Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” and “Slow Ready” for the last two songs of their first set. The second set was five songs starting with “Madhuvan” and ending with “Hot Tea,” which Jason Hann joined in for.
Goose has dates all the way through November 19th.
