Quips and summaries from experiencing and appreciating music in a city that is as foreign and familiar as they come - New York. So here is to music anywhere and everywhere. Starting from concert one on week one after the move in 2009.

WANDERLUST FESTIVAL: Be the first to know about it and the first to attend:

I am happy to announce the launch of a new festival this summer! The web site just went up, tickets go on sale May 12th, it's taking place at the very cool Squaw Valley USA in Lake Tahoe, CA July 24th-July 26th so buckle up.
For those of you hard core music fans that aren't lazy or tubby and can rally for multiple days of shenanigans, this festival is for you! You schedule in yoga classes just like you schedule which band to see, you walk around the concert area at 8,200 feet, skip the gondola and walk back down to the village if you dare and then party all night, getting weird with the likes of Girl Talk and the burlesque troupe Mutaytor.
So check out their flow and read more about it below using their words not mine:
Music by Michael Franti & Spearhead, Spoon, Andrew Bird, Jenny Lewis, Gillian Welch, Broken Social Scene, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Girl Talk and many others. Yoga taught by John Friend, Shiva Rea, Duncan Wong, Sianna Sherman, Elena Brower, Schuyler Grant, Janet Stone, Rusty Wells and more.
The Press Release for Wanderlust:


Wanderlust Festival Lands in Lake Tahoe

Yoga, Music, and Spectacular Views Set This Festival Apart From the Rest

This summer a new happening will redefine the destination festival experience. A boutique, three-day experience, Wanderlust brings together the world’s leading yoga teachers and top-tier rock and roll performers, all in a setting of breathtaking natural beauty. This feast for both the body and the senses takes place July 24-26 at Squaw Valley USA, Lake Tahoe, California.

  Festival-goers can spend their mornings down in the Village at Squaw Valley getting centered in one of many classes led by some of the most notable names in yoga today, including Shiva Rea and John Friend. Wanderlust will include other notable instructors like Annie Carpenter, Christy Nones, Duncan Wong, Elena Brower, Janet Stone, Jason & Jenny (acroyogis), Katchie Ananda, Kenny Graham, Les Leventhal, Rusty Wells, Schuyler Grant, Sianna Sherman, and many others from San Francisco’s Yoga Tree studios.

  Afternoons and evenings are dedicated to musical discovery. Ride the cable car up the mountain and soak in fresh, diverse performances on a stage perched atop the Sierra Nevadas.  It’s a setting like no other, with a line-up to match. Michael Franti & Spearhead, Spoon, Andrew Bird, Jenny Lewis, Broken Social Scene, Gillian Welch, and Girl Talk lead the collection of acts.  Other artists performing at 8,000 feet include Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Rogue Wave, Amanda Palmer, Kaki King, Mates of State, The Honey Brothers, The Mutaytor, The London Souls, Jai Uttal, and more.
