Trey Anastasio

The Sweetwater 420 Festival in Atlanta, Ga continued into the third day with a high octane line up and the largest crowd the festival has ever seen. It was difficult moving around at times given the huge crowd, though nonetheless very enjoyable and full of southern hospitality. The music was anchored by The Trey Anastasio Band, Umphrey's McGee and Goose.

The jam rock icon Phish triumphantly returned to Madison Square Garden for the first night of a four night stand, rescheduled from December 2021 because of complications with the COVID-19 pandemic. The show kicked off with a bang, including a type II jam in the first song, despite not having played since February 27th, 2022. The band didn't stop there, and brought a mix of old and new songs, each elevating the show in a uniquely exciting way.

Three songs into Trey Anastasio’s new solo acoustic album, Mercy, I was in the middle of writing in my notes, “this could be the song or montage moment for a character in a Disney movie, probably with animal interaction, or magic,” and without missing a beat, right into my earhole, Trey sings, “let it go,” four times.

TREY ANASTASIO's first-ever solo acoustic album, MERCY, is out today. Below are the complete album liner notes written by David Fricke:

TREY ANASTASIO has announced that he will be releasing his first-ever solo acoustic album, MERCY, this Friday, March 11.

Last night, the 35th Annual Tibet House US Benefit Concert went virtual for the second year in a row, offering viewers from around the world the unique opportunity to experience the warmth, sense of community, amazing music and extraordinary spoken word performances the evening has provided for so many years pre-pandemic at Carnegie Hall.

Phish has announced plans for North American spring and summer tour, set to get underway on May 27-29 with a three-night Memorial Day weekend stand at Orange Beach, AL’s The Amphitheater at the Wharf and culminating with the band’s first four-night Labor Day weekend run at Commerce City, CO’s Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on September 1-4.

Today, AEG Presents chairman emeritus Chuck Morris joined Governor Jared Polis, Community Foundation of Boulder President Tatiana Hernandez, and Nathaniel Rateliff of Colorado-based band Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats to announce a virtual benefit concert to support disaster survivors of the Marshall Fire. The pre-recorded concert will go live online on February 28th with more than 15 Colorado-based artists and popular national musical acts performing.
