Zen Tricksters to Play Rare Show at Brooklyn Bowl
Classic Long Island-bred jamband Zen Tricksters will play a rare show this month. The long-running outfit will appear at New York’s Brooklyn Bowl on January 8. The Zen Tricksters have only played sporadically in recent years while guitarist Jeff Mattson and keyboardist Rob Barraco focus on Dark Star Orchestra, but the ensemble usually comes together for a New York appearance near the start of the year. Earlier this year Mattson also performed with Phil Lesh for the first time since 1999.
Dark Star Orchestra will close the year with shows at Richmond, VA’s The National (12/28-29) and Philadelphia, PA’s Electric Factory (12/30-31). Matson will participate in a benefit for Just Harvest at Pittsburgh, PA’s Rex Theater on March 18.
