Other highlights of the show. Justin Jones was really good. The Levon Helm Band, played without Levon singing b/c voice is needing rest. No matter, as his stellar band still were standouts, as the nights biggest star, legendary sideman Larry Campbell, played and sang wonderfully, and renditions of "it makes no difference" and "the shape I'm In" were eulogies to Rick Danko and Richard Manuel.

Old Crow put on the usual stellar show with guest appearences by the Felice Brothers, and Iron and Wine was fine as well, but a little misplaced in this rocking lineup, and was a particular problem having to follow the mercurial Grace Potter who could steal the spotlight from just about anyone.
