Page McConnell kicked off his Summer tour last night (5/30/07) in Burlington, VT. It was basically a safe show, focusing on his new material. One highlight of the night was when Mike Gordon joined his phormer band-mate for a rendition of "Back in the Basement". Click here for photos from this performance.
Thanks to the beauty of YouTube we can all watch a few clips from last night's performance.
