Just finished recouperating from the december 30th and 31st shows. the music was great, as it always is when gov't mule is on stage. but i felt the staff at the "under new management" beacon theater were a little too overbearing. with the exception of a few, most of them were rude as if we were all in the way or something. i have definitely felt more welcome and more laid back there in the past. as much as the sound is great in the theater, the staff is going to ruin people's ambition to attend more mule shows there. the energy level was low in the building beacuse of it. sad.
