Fresh off its
well-deserved induction last week into the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame —
where it joined the likes of Ani DiFranco, Willie Nile and the Goo Goo
Dolls — moe. returns to rock your ass into the jamoe.sphere. Or
hardly seems possible that moe. has been plying its
Zappa-by-way-of-Southern-Rock- with-a-twist-of-Dead improvisation
triangulation on the Jam circuit for close to 20 years now, but
calendars and catalogs don’t lie.
And the amazing thing about moe. is
that, except for a few brief years in the ’90s when they were signed to
Sony, the band has primarily done things its way as a strictly
independent band: starting its own label, Fatboy Records; releasing
well over a dozen albums on its own (including the latest studio
effort, last year’s Sticks and Stones, six volumes in its
"Warts and All" concert collection, a trio of "Instant Live" editions
and a couple of multi-disc volumes of its latest live series, Dr. Stan’s Prescription);
and becoming relentless road dogs with a special emphasis on festivals.
