On Friday evening, Trey Anastasio‘s Ghosts of the Forest made their way to New York City for their first of two performances at the United Palace.The Friday show coincided with the release of the new band’s eponymous debut studio album earlier in the day. It also marked the first Ghosts of the Forest show to be webcast via LivePhish, giving the masses their first real look at the project. As Trey explained in an interview with SiriusXM last week, the two Ghosts of the Forest NYC shows as recording sessions for a live album, which he hopes will be the lasting version of this “finite” project:This has been in place all along, but, the idea was to take the two nights and record the shows as a live album at the United Palace Theatre. It will almost be like a regular recording session, with two passes at the shows. For example, when Aretha Franklin was famously recording a record she would do two passes and that was it. Everyone had to play live. So for us, this is like we get two takes at the United Palace Theatre, but most importantly, the full picture of the Ghosts of the Forest document will have our community members and family in the audience. The recording will end up being a live album. Ghosts of the Forest will be back at the United Palace tonight, Saturday, April 13th, for another sold-out performance. Next weekend, the band will wrap their tour with shows at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and Berkeley, CA. From there, the majority of the band will regroup with Trey Anastasio Band for a run of spring shows.Below, you can check out a gallery of photos from the performance courtesy of photographer Andrew Blackstein.For a full list of Trey’s upcoming tour dates, head to his website here.Ghosts Of The Forest | United Palace | New York, NY | 4/12/19 | Photos: Andrew Blackstein Load remaining imagesread more
