In just a few short weeks Phish will take the MSG stage for their traditional four-night New Year’s Run in New York City. NYC promoter CEG Presents has a full slate of late night after parties set to take place at a variety of venues from the 28th to the 30th for your post-show entertainment.
The shows feature a bevy of HT faves such as New Orleans’ Rebirth Brass Band at the Gramercy Theatre on the 29th, one-man-band Zach Deputy at the Gramercy Theatre on the 30th, avant-groove pianist Marco Benevento and Grateful Dead cover band Dead Sessions at the Highline Ballroom on the 28th and 30th respectively as well as a “multi-room club experience” featuring Wyllys and the New York Hustler Ensemble, Heavy Pets and Kung Fu at Rebel on the 30th.
Tickets to these shows and more, including Consider The Source at Rebel on the 27th, are available through PhishAfterParties.com. You can also try your luck at Glide Magazine’s giveaway.
Here’s a full list of CEG’s Phish After-Parties…
As we plunge deeper in the winter months, there’s nothing like getting out and seeing some funk music to get your ass shaking to keep that seasonal depression at a minimum. For those of you on the West Coast you’re in luck as two great New Orleans-based acts Dumpstaphunk and the Rebirth Brass Band will team up for an eight-date run up the coast that will include a two-night stand at The Independent in San Francisco.
If you’re not into a night of New Orleans funk, than maybe you’ll be interested in hitting one of these recently announced tours…
Finally, we have some good and bad news from the festival world to share this week. First the bad news, organizers behind the 10,000 Lake Festival have announced that after seven years that the jam-friendly festie will be on an “official hiatus until further notice.” On the flip side things the Northwest String Summit will return for it’s ninth installment to take place at Horning’s Hideout in North Plains, OR from July 16 – 18 of next year – with the Yonder Mountain String Band playing host with two sets each night.
