Randy Meech, a resident of Shelter Island and Brooklyn and an avid fisherman, has recently developed an application, Tides Near Me. He usually uses his management and engineering skills to develop applications for large Internet-based companies. This, however, was seen as meeting a need, and so he took it on.
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."
