On Sunday night, Goose got in on the fiesta at Dead & Company destination event Playing In The Sand in Quintana Roo, Mexico with a two-set headlining show featuring an extended guest appearance by Bob Weir. To say that Goose entered 2023 as one of the hottest bands in the scene would be the understatement of this young year. The quintet continued its exponential rise in 2022 with a constant string of noteworthy milestones, from an acclaimed new album (Dripfield) and a surprise EP (Undecided) to a co-headlining, commingling tour with Trey Anastasio Band to late-night TV appearances on Kimmel and Fallon to live collaborations with everyone from beloved rapper Big Boi to indie luminary Father John Misty, not to mention guitarist Rick Mitarotonda‘s multiple outings with Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh. With another banner year lingering fondly but firmly in the rearview mirror, Goose carried its hot streak into 2023 with its first show of the year as part of Dead & Company’s Mexican vacation.
