I’m heading to the Garden on the 31st for the latest installment of My Morning Jacket’s New Year’s saga. It turns out I won’t be the only Bernstein in the house. Sex Mob slide trumpet great Steven Bernstein (no relation) will join Jim James and the gang to add a horny element to the evening. According to Jambands and Jambase the exact nature of the collaboration is unknown, but we hope to see him early and often on some brand-new covers and old favorites.
For those of you out in San Francisco, Tea Leaf Green recently announced the details of their New Year’s Eve gig at Mezzanine with Moonalice. The band will kick off the second night of their two-night stand at the venue just around Midnight allowing those hitting early shows to catch most of TLG’s three-set performance that will go to at least 4AM. Tickets are currently available at Ticketweb.
