Phish’s Trey Anastasio announced his eight-week virtual residency from NYC’s Beacon Theatre. The Beacon Jams will stream exclusively from Twitch here every Friday from Oct. 9 – Nov. 27. Anastasio’s Beacon Theatre residency is also the first online residency that MSG Entertainment has hosted.
“When we thought about playing the Beacon, I was reminded of the meaning of the word,” Anastasio said. “A beacon is a beam of light, often from a lighthouse, which sends it out to sailors who are lost at sea and all alone. They look for the beacon and it guides them home.”
The shows will feature a mix of electric and acoustic songs. Anastasio’s performances are free, but donations will benefit the WaterWheel Foundation and the new Divided Sky Fund (DSF).
