“Good times,” yelled Inda Eaton to the Stephen Talkhouse crowd last Thursday — which she is indeed known for creating, with her music, raspy soulful voice, truthful storytelling, and sense of humor.
With a gift for connecting with an audience, Ms. Eaton, who has lived in East Hampton for seven years, showed the locals she gets it, saying how thankful she was for being able to walk into the I.G.A. after the frantic holiday weekend “and load up for next weekend.”
Suddyn, a band led by two brothers from Montauk, now has a new drummer, a new name — the Rebel Light — and a new gig: the July 28 and 29 Catalpa music festival on Manhattan’s Randalls Island. Alan and Jarrett Steil will fly home from Los Angeles this week for the show. With the new drummer, Brandon Cook, they will join headliners such as the Black Keys and Snoop Dogg.
Last year, Roger Waters showed up at Amagansett's Stephen Talkhouse when G.E. Smith was playing, Nick Kraus, a manager there, said. He missed it, unfortunately, he said, "Pink Floyd was there and I was nearby and had no idea." Anyway, he is surprised that tonight's 8 p.m. show, which will include Taylor Barton, has not yet sold out.
Mr. Kraus also couldn't believe there were still tickets for Xavier Rudd's show on Thursday night, a popular performer he called an "Australian Jack Johnson."
