Only a few shows into their Come What May Tour, Gov’t Mule performed the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania on Friday night. While most rock bands rely heavily on their new material, Mule takes a confident approach toward mood with each and every show that they play. Friday night, as an example, featured three tunes from the upcoming Revolution Come … Revolution Go album, amongst an otherwise emotional setlist.The tone was set when Warren Haynes (former Allman Brothers guitarist) opened the show with “Dreams.” The Allman Brothers song has only been played by Mule 35 times, so the song choice was certainly methodical. The “Dreams” groove led into Mule’s original “Thorazine Shuffle” from their 1998 Dose, then “Whisper In Your Soul.” Just a few days after the unexpected death of Chris Cornell, the band played tribute with a cover of “Fell on Black Days” by Soundgarden, a fitting choice to follow up Haynes’ reflection earlier in the week. The song hadn’t been played by Mule since 2008 at The Hammerstein.From there, the tone was set. The reality sunk in, and it was time for Gov’t Mule’s reflections on the current political climate with a pair of new tunes, “Stone Cold Rage” and “Sarah, Surrender,” from Revolution Come … Revolution Go. From hard rock to soft funk, the band moved on to their often-visited cover of “Kind of Bird,” the second Allman Brothers cover of the evening. Chris Robinson and Neal Casal were on set, opening as the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, and eventually joined in for a cover of the Black Crowes‘ “Sometimes Salvation” to close out the first set.The second set opened with an emotional cover of “Effigy” that featured a “Folsom Prison Blues” jam, leading into “Painted Silver Light” and “Temporary Saint” from the band’s 1995 debut, self-titled Gov’t Mule album. Onwards, an instrumental version of Bob Marley & The Wailers‘ “Lively Up Yourself” lifted spirits before a moving version of “Captured” took over, then “Lay Your Burden Down.” With the music as the medium, it seems as though Gov’t Mule chooses to spend their time on the road with purpose: to send a message.With music as the ultimate medicine, a cover of Howlin’ Wolf‘s “Smokestack Lightning” presented itself into a “Lay Your Burden Down” reprise. Life Before Insanity‘s “Bad Little Doggie” came next, into another cover of Howlin’ Wolf’s “How Many More Years” to close the show.Haynes and Danny Louis returned to the stage to encore with a touching version of Leonard Cohen‘s “Hallelujah.” The rest of the band joined the two on stage for a show-closing live debut of “Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground” from their forthcoming album — due out June 9.Thanks to Sean Roche, you can watch video highlights from the show below:Dreams (Allman Brothers Band)Fell on Black Days (Soundgarden)Kind of a Bird (Allman Brothers Band)Sometimes Salvation (The Black Crowes) with Chris Robinson and Neal CasalEffigy (Creedence Clearwater Revival)CapturedHow Many More Years (Howlin’ Wolf)Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen) part IHallelujah (Leonard Cohen) part IIDark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground (live debut)Setlist: Gov’t Mule | Tower Theatre | Upper Darby, PA | 5/19/17Dreams (Allman Brothers Band cover) > Thorazine Shuffle, Whisper In Your Soul, Fell on Black Days (Soundgarden cover), Stone Cold Rage, Sarah, Surrender, Kind of Bird (Allman Brothers Band), Sometimes Salvation (Black Crowes cover, with Chris Robinson and Neal Casal)II: Effigy (Creedence Clearwater Revival cover, with “Folsom Prison Blues” jam) > Painted Silver Light > Temporary Saint, Lively Up Yourself (Bob Marley & The Wailers cover, instrumental), Captured, Lay Your Burden Down, Smokestack Lightning (Howlin’ Wolf cover) > Lay Your Burden Down Reprise, Bad Little Doggie, How Many More Years (Howlin’ Wolf cover)E: Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen cover, Warren & Danny only), Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground

On the contrary, childbirth is dramatic, risky and sometimes, traumatic, both physically and mentally, for the mother … In addition to these risks, are others such as the risks associated with induced labor, spinal and/or epidural anesthetic and cesarean section. We believe that there is a meaningful sense in which a woman is putting her life and health at risk in delivering a baby.”Although the risk of death occurring is small in first?world jurisdictions, the risk is not zero … If a woman does not want to proceed with a pregnancy, it is reasonable for the woman to cite risks such as these even if, statistically, the risk is low.”
