Starr Hill Presents announced a couple of exciting new shows: Phish frontman Trey Anastasio comes October 15 to the Pavilion. In recent years, guitar virtuoso Anastasio has overcome addiction (and become a vocal advocate for drug courts) reformed his old band Phish, and played a three-day festival in upstate New York—featuring Phish and only Phish, for three straight days.
October’s gig will feature the same formation of his Trey Anastasio Band that debuted last winter. Aside from Phish, Anastasio has released eight solo albums that have been a breeding ground for Phish material. (Below is an actually-quite-lovely clip of Time Turns Elastic, an orchestral piece Anastasio released as a solo record, which was released as a single on Phish’s album Joy.)
Tickets go on sale in early August.

Also announced: My Morning Jacket plays the Pavilion on August 24. The group, which also came to town in 2008, has been a heavy presence on the summer festival circuit since forming more than a decade ago, all while expanding the palate of Southern rock. Like most of MMJ’s albums, the latest, this year’s Circuital (released on Dave Matthews’ ATO Records) has been well-received by fans and critics. Hear the lead single below.
