The long weekend and concerts I had been anticipating for months had finally come, as the Tedeschi Trucks Band took the stage for the first night of their two-night stay at Seattle’s majestic Paramount Theatre. Beginning with “Anyhow” and “Within You Without You/Just As Strange,” the first set fully blossomed as the band delivered a full-throttle “Do I Look Worried” showcasing Susan Tedeschi’s powerhouse vocal abilities and Derek Truck’s masterful slide playing. The second set began with Dylan’s “Down in the Flood” and included a great version of “Key to the Highway,” with Mike Mattison sharing vocal duties with Susan, a highlight moment of the set which ended with a stunning performance of “The Storm / Whipping Post.” For the encore, with the house on its feet, the band launched into “Hard Case” from their new album, Signs, which had everyone in the house dancing along. They closed the night with the emotional “Space Captain” as the crowd sang along, “learning to live together,” ending this night on a perfect note.
