There are jam bands that noodle toothlessly, and then there are jam bands that play with both precision and power. Gov't Mule, led by Warren Haynes of the Allman Brothers Band, fits firmly into the latter camp: Its songs stomp and wail with unmistakable energy and heft. Click the link above to hear Gov't Mule in concert from WXPN and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.

Formed as an Allmans side project in 1994, Gov't Mule has since released a string of studio albums and jumbo-sized multi-disc live documents. Its latest record is titled By a Thread, but Gov't Mule's studio work is only a small piece of an ever-increasing mosaic: All of the band's shows are recorded and made available for purchase online. This show won't be available for purchase, but it should provide an intense, scaled-down version of a live concert experience that can be downright epic.
