Today, Breckenridge Brewery announced the lineup for its 28th Anniversary Hootenanny featuring: Mike Gordon, Hard Working Americans, Billy Strings, Drew Emmitt/Andy Thorn & Friends (Eddie Roberts of The New Mastersounds, Daniel Rodriguez and Dango Rose of Elephant Revival, and Joe Lessard of Head for the Hills), The Sweet Lillies, The Teskey Brothers, Coral Creek, Woodshed Red, and Brothers of Brass.
Since opening doors April 15, 1998, Higher Ground has served the Vermont and Northern New England community with 7,500+ shows featuring every genre under the sun. Continuing that tradition, Higher Ground is celebrating its 20th anniversary throughout the month of April with an incredible lineup of favorites, underplays, surprises, and reunions. A full list follows.
Mike Gordon and his band will play a weekend of Northeast dates in March along with a hometown show in Burlington in April. The run includes stops in Philadelphia at Union Transfer (3/9), Brooklyn Steel in Brooklyn (3/10), and The Egg in Albany (3/11). The band will also return to Higher Ground in Burlington, VT (4/5) as part of the club's month-long 20th Anniversary celebration.
The musicians that make up Phish are relentless students and teachers of musical prowess, theory, and expression. It seems as though they never rest and constantly create. After a powerful three nights at Dick’s Sporting Good Park in Colorado a month and a half ago, bassist Mike Gordon was back with his solo band to close his tour in the mountains at the elegant Boulder Theater.
To celebrate the release of OGOGO, Mike Gordon and his band will be doing a two special in-store mini-electric performance & autograph signings on tour. The first is this week at The Sound Garden in Syracuse, NY and the next will be on the last day of tour at Twist & Shout Records in Denver. Details about both are here.
Trey Anastasio Band closed out Grace Potter’s Grand Point North festival in Burlington, Vermont last night. In years past, Potter has headlined both Saturday and Sunday night at the Festival. This year, Potter headlined Saturday night while turning over that spot to Trey Anastasio Band (TAB) on Sunday. (Grace performed a full set immediately before Trey.) This was the first show for TAB in Burlington since in October, 2011. Potter has performed on several bills with Anastasio over the years.
Phish bassist Mike Gordon returns to the road with his band this fall. Unlike previous projects, the goal was to put together a band that would be in it for the long haul. Guitarist and longtime collaborator Scott Murawski and Mike searched the nooks and crannies of this land for players to complete the outfit. Scott can rip guitar to no end, and he belts out with the kind of voice that at once sounds like your best friend and like the deep backwoods soul and grit of a true American hobo hero, too cool to talk in normal small-talk.
