Check out Trey’s solo performance of “Architect” in his recent appearance on World Cafe. Makes you appreciate the highly produced studio version all the more.

Mesmerizing, and an awesome look at Trey’s rig. I wonder if he’s doing a signature deal with Fender.

Grim words in the email inbox today:
We regret to inform you that you did not get the tickets that you requested through Phish Tickets.
Trey is playing in a week out in Silver Spring, and I’m really digging the new record. Just don’t know if I can do the schlep.

Trey co-produced the album with Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Jonsi) last fall in Katis’ Tarquin Studios in Bridgeport, CT. Along with Trey Anastasio Band, Katis invited several artists to work with them, including Mates of State’s Kori Gardner, The National’s Bryan Devendorf and Matt Berninger, and Icelandic percussionist Samuli Kosminen.
Trey’s playing at the The Fillmore Silver Spring on the 24th of October. Such a shame the dude no longer plays the 930 Club.

I wonder what’s up with this:
Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio is inducting rock group Genesis into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame next month.
Is Trey a Genesis fan? I guess we’ll find out. Maybe he was the one who put the “Lamb” on the Festival 8 countdown list.

Thanks to YEMBlog, I found the 2/9 Trey show for download, which someone (thank you!) has posted up on SendSpace. I paid $3 for a SendSpace day pass, and now the show is in my collection. That process still amazes me, perhaps because I grew up listening to hissy, who-knows-what generation-of-copying bootlegs on cassette.
Right now, I’m giving the show a listen. Outstanding. Love the big riff at the end of “Valentine.”

I found plenty of bloggable stuff out there on the Internet today. Here are a couple of bits and pieces.
- Peter Gabriel. According to AP, he’s bailing on Genesis’s induction next month into the rock hall of fame, citing his upcoming European tour. Sort of harsh, no? Maybe they do some sort of video link.
- Carl Sagan. NPR quotes the scientist on the view of Earth from 4 billion miles away.
Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every ‘superstar,’ every ‘supreme leader,’ every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there — on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.
When I was little, I watched “Cosmos” on public television – that show kind of blew my mind. I might have to Netflix that action.
- Click Track. The Washington Post music blog reviews half of the 2/9 Trey show at 930 club.
“As a bonus you’ve been probably bobbing your head all along and not just because you might have a contact high,” says Click Track.
Ha ha ha! Stoners getting high at the Trey show! Ha! Only I didn’t see or smell pot or any other drugs (besides booze) once when I was there. Maybe the blogger did, but he didn’t elaborate. Then, from hackneyed to casual racism: “The two forays into light-reggae were about as successful as you’d expect from a band of seven white folks led by a dude from Vermont.” Yeeeucthh.
Reminds me of this:

It was hairy to get to this show. When I set out at 8pm for the club, snow was falling heavily, and there was an ominous feel out there on the streets of DC. Not much traffic out on the slick roads. I got a cab pretty quickly, though, and we set out slowly on our way.
We hadn’t gone more than a few stoplights when I realized that I had forgotten my motherf’n tickets at home. The cab driver was understanding, and he took me back, even waiting for me with the meter running on M Street while I scurried to grab my tickets.
Anyway, I thought the harsh conditions were going to thin the herd over at 930. Wrong. Place was packed! As full as I remember it being the last time I saw Trey there (in 2006).
The band had already started when I arrived – they were playing “Gotta Jibboo.” The mood for that song was the pretty much what was evident throughout the rest of the gig (at least the part that I stayed for; I ducked out about midway through the second set). I would call it “relaxed tight.” Trey was energetic but not hopping all over the stage. He directed the band ably, and they held things down very steadily. Musically, I found it a much different vibe than a Phish show, where the four band members are collaborating pretty much as co-equals.
I’m looking forward to downloading this show someplace. Here’s a video snippet.

I hate to blog the weather too much around here, but seriously, it’s weird how snow and my music plans have been linked up recently. At the moment, the forecast calls for six to 10 inches of snow tomorrow.
Following on the heels of snowpocalypse, this is definitely not what DC needs. My street is still a mess, with snow piled high and a downed tree on one end of the block. No mail. My office was half empty today. Inventory at grocery stores is getting pinched. Sure, it’s a long way from Katrina (and a really long way from Haiti), but dude, another six inches of snowfall is troublesome.
On the music front, worst case scenario is that Trey gets canceled. Best case scenario is that the show goes on, but the snow and pain-in-the-ass factor of getting to the club thins the crowds at 930 Club tomorrow. Trey gig at 930 back in 2006 was utterly packed.
