There are few New York traditions that unite Southern and experimental rock, jam band, jazz, and country fans under one roof, but the Allman Brothers annual Beacon run has become a rite of passage and pilgrimage for nearly a quarter century. They’ve grown older, perhaps wiser, and more stylistically deliberate, yet no amount of setbacks has stopped them from playing “Whipping Post” or Van Morrison’s “Into the Mystic” as the endless, escalating jam-based sermons that made their name. Their psychedelic, fractal-based light show hasn’t changed since the ’80s either, but a timeless period décor is typical of most religious institutions.
