Mumford and Sons have revealed the small cities hosting this year’s Gentlemen Of The Road Stopovers
We’ve been watching the proliferation of music festivals in Florida over the last few years with great interest and this morning a new player has emerged in the form of
While Phish won’t be touring this fall, the band’s guitarist has confirmed his first gig of the season as Trey Anastasio and his band has been added to the lineup for this year’s Bear Creek Music & Art Festival. Set to take place in gorgeous Spirit of the Suwanee Music Park in Live Oak, FL, Bear Creek is known for its intimate atmosphere, family feel and funk-heavy lineup.
Anastasio bolts to the top of Bear Creek’s bill with Medeski, Scofield, Martin & Wood, The Funky Meters, KDTU, Galactic, John Scofield & Piety Street, Soulive, Lettuce and MMW among the acts scheduled to perform in Live Oak between November 11 and 13. George Porter Jr & the Runnin’ Pardners, the Russell Batiste Band are among the other additions to the lineup announced today along with artists at large Freekbass, Nikki Glaspie, Jamie McLean, Will Bernard, Johnny Vidocovich, Roosevelt Collier, Scott Messersmith, Topaz, and Michelle Sarah. Head over to the festival’s website for the full lineup and ticketing information.
We spoke with Bear Creek organizer Paul Levine about booking TAB and he mentioned how much this addition meant to him. “Personally, I am head over heels excited to have The Trey Anastasio Band at Bear Creek. Trey is obviously considered by many to be the best and most emotionally expressive guitar player in the world. We are honored to welcome TAB to Bear Creek, Levine said.” Levine went on to explain, “I am a huge Phish and Trey fan. I saw Phish for the first time at Haverford College in a cafeteria in 1990, I believe, while I was at Lehigh University. Since 2000, I have probably seen Phish 40-50 times. I was at Coventry and at Madison Square Garden for New Year’s this year. I saw the famous ‘Meatstick’ in New York and it was probably the most joyful thing I’ve ever seen a band do.” READ ON for more…
A couple of weeks ago, I took a three day weekend to head down to South Beach and points south to get out of NYC for a few days to refresh and recharge as well as see some friends that I usually only see when they come to the Big Apple. My first post from this trip was F4tF: The Best Burger in America about Le Tub in Hollywood Beach, Florida. This week’s post is about a place that I had not planned on going to and was only told about after heading somewhere else first. That place was Robert Is Here.
On the second day of my trip (Sunday), one of the things that was on the agenda was to find a good farmer’s market in the Miami area. I emailed one of my chef friends who said the place to go was Pinecrest Gardens which was about a 1/2 hour south of Miami and was rated “Best Farmer’s Market In Miami” in the Miami New Times Best of 2010. We got in the car, GPS’d the location we were given and headed down to Pinecrest (open Every Sunday, November 7th – May 28, 2011 from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.). My chef friend was right, the selection was beautiful, flavorful and bountiful.
Below are some of the pictures I shot at the market that day:

Just as we suspected and previously speculated, Phish will release a 2-DVD set on October 19th through JEMP Records of their November 2nd 1996 performance at Coral Sky Amphitheater in
