Trey Anastasio plans rare club show
Ex-Phish frontman also set for All Points West festNEW YORK -- Former Phish frontman Trey Anastasio will warm up for his Aug. 10 set at the All Points West festival in New Jersey via a rare club show with his band Classic Tab three days earlier at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn.
Tickets go on sale Saturday. The venue is opening early that night and offering happy hour drink specials for the occasion.
After a 2007 arrest on drug charges, Anastasio has been slowly easing himself back into live performance. He performed over the 4th of July weekend at the first Rothbury festival in Michigan, during which he also collaborated with former Phish bandmates Mike Gordon and Jon Fishman, and will also play this coming weekend at the Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island.
Last week, Anastasio announced that he and Orchestra Nashville composer-in-residence Don Hart would on Sept. 27 premiere a new work, "Times Turns Elastic," at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium.
