Really? That's odd. The lead singer said two or three times on Saturday night that they'd never been here before and that they'd be sure to come back?
This wasn't their maiden voyage to the Tampa Bay area. Lake Street Dive played a very impressive set Sunday at the 2013 Clearwater Jazz Holiday.
Never heard of him.
Music lineup issues aside, what great photos and coverage. Kudos to Kimberly DeFalco and Leilani Polk for this intimate and evocative look at a Clearwater tradition.
i completely agree the costume contest was rigged no food n bathroom 40$ for me n my husband to stand in a hole in front of a stage didnt stick around left ybor city 30 minutes later never going back there
A bit strange to have Terrence Simian and then Marsha Ball open for Dr. John on Saturday night.
Terrence performed Iko Iko, which IS Dr. John's most well known song.
And to have Marcha Ball, a New Orleans style piano player open up right before THE New Orleans style piano player is just poor judgement.
Everyone sounded great, but the lineup could have been thought out a little better. It kind of diluted the style and evening.
And yes, to echo the previous commenters, jazz at the jazz fest was severely lacking.
"Our Music Selection Committee works tirelessly as we work to stay current. "
Work harder...or better yet, call me. Let's get "Jazz" back in the festival.
Just not much JAZZ at the "Jazz festival". Weather was amazing of course. Shame.
Fubar isn't in Ybor city. Hopefully everyone knows that.
While I enjoy some of the bands CJH brings each year including the likes of EWF, it is disappointing to not celebrate the jazz category. I think if this is the direction they're going to keep going in, they really should stop the hypocrisy and drop JAZZ for MUSIC in the name to be more honest.
Then again, the majority of 'jazz' artists in the past would fall into the vanilla mainstream 'smooth jazz' label.
Spirit Family Reunion is Sunday's can't-miss act!
I remember when the old jukebox played 45s and you could get Old Style on draft!!
I brought Mary, from Southern Culture on the Skids, there and she jumped up and sang an X song with locals, Johnny Thunders Overdose.
Kyle jumping over the tables and screaming "Interpol" when they walked in.
the Black Lips played there at least twice!
I've have drinks with The Damned, John Doe ( shots of jager; ), Roger Miret and lots of whiskey with Lucero.
oh ya, and how bout the fight with Rev Horton Heat's drummer? I believe LeRoi started that one. which makes me think if the infamous Arcade Inferno show with naked LeRoi drumming.
Thanks to George for taking a chance on the xmas party and the Safehouse Mutant Ninja Pirates on Ice are Bastards for starting it all off ( Jason and Porl, Jeff and Matt)
Too much fun there over the years and last but not least my old pal Walt and his delcious grayhounds. oxox mimi
I've had so many good times at the Emerald, at all hours. I loved the quiet weird day drinking scene and of course the loud music and friend filled nights so much that when I found out I was pregnant five years ago one of my first thoughts was that I was sad because I wouldn't be able to hang out at the Emerald nearly as much. It's still my favorite bar, anywhere. I hope it hangs in there for a long long time so I can resume my patronage on a more profound level once this parental responsibility thing subsides.
Tori is forever the best musician, goddess.
Saw them in 2011 in small venue (1,000 max) and it was a great, loud, bouncy night. Have VIP tix for Chicago; lived & loved the 80s. Lucky me!
Sonic Graffiti, Plastic Pinks, The Gun Hoes all kickass rock n roll bands playing Dont Stop, but yea i do wish there were some more bands with similar spirits playing but will still be a great fest
Don't Stop has a real lack of local punk/hardcore/heavy bands which make up a big part of the regular 600 block scene. I'll still probably go, but I'm not feeling it as much as in past years.
Great concert!!!!. They sound just as good today as they did in the 80's. Really hope they come back to Tampa bag
OHHHH, I CAN'T WAIT!!!
