At the Whalebone Creative, Jesse James Joeckel’s silk-screen shop on Tuthill Road in Montauk, the mood is decidedly laid-back. He works on his hand-sketched and stenciled designs “when it makes sense,” he said, taking a break to swim or fish in Fort Pond Bay behind the shop but sometimes staying open until 10:30 at night.
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."
