Dark Star Orchestra Recreates 12/28/87 To Kick Off NYE Run In Philly

first_imgVeteran Grateful Dead tribute band Dark Star Orchestra launched their four-night New Year’s run at the newly-dubbed Franklin Music Hall (formerly the Electric Factory) in Philadelphia on Friday night. Generally in top form, the band smoothly played through a scorching setlist originally performed by the Grateful Dead at Oakland Coliseum Arena on December 28, 1987.About 2,500 fans packed the smoky venue, and the atmosphere in the Franklin stayed energetic and upbeat throughout the show. The crowd started to boogie as soon as the band eased into the opening chords of “Feel Like a Stranger”. Following the staccato ending to “Stranger”, beloved three-chord jam “Franklin’s Tower” gave lead guitarist Jeff Matson some space to find his balance for the night. He did so in dramatic fashion, delivering soaring solos between verses. “New Minglewood Blues” followed, finding rhythm guitarist Rob Eaton busting out slide licks and giving renowned keyboardist Rob Barraco a chance to perform a standout organ solo.The band slowed things down a bit with a masterful, sensitive take on “Row Jimmy”, then drew on Barraco’s powerful vocals to cover the Brent Mydland-written “Far From Me.” Eaton then led the band into one of the Dead’s favorite Bob Dylan covers, “When I Paint My Masterpiece,” before Mattson took the reins and steered the group right into an uptempo “Sugaree,” typical of the ‘87 era. The boys closed out their first set with a high-energy “Hell in a Bucket,” leaving the audience wanting more.Sure enough, Dark Star came back onstage to deliver the dance tunes. They began their second set with a remarkably good “China Cat Sunflower”, which inevitably flowed into its neighbor “I Know You Rider.” This early combination had everyone dancing in the standing-room-only venue, and the band kept the romping good times going with a notable performance by bassist Skip Vangelas during a blazing “Cumberland Blues”.That’s right! – “Man Smart (Woman Smarter)” was up next, which kept the crowd standing and dancing right through the second-set staples of “Drums” and “Space”, which saw percussive theatrics from drummers Dino English and Rob Koritz. Emerging from the depths of “Space”, “The Wheel” would have been a major highlight of the show, with much of the audience belting the chorus of the familiar anthem. Yet, it found itself overshadowed by an absolutely flaming version of “Truckin’”, during which Mattson led the band to its highest peaks of the night before transitioning into a crawling, gritty take on the Howlin’ Wolf tune “Smokestack Lightning”.The clock struck midnight as the band geared up for sad, bluesy “Black Peter” before closing out the second set with a smoking hot “Sugar Magnolia.” The last tune’s “Sunshine Daydream” outro had everyone on their feet once more, and held the crowd over as the band disappeared backstage. Reappearing for the encore a few moments later, Dark Star Orchestra finished the show with a beautiful, tender “Black Muddy River”, which proved a fine ending to an excellent show.Dark Star Orchestra will finish their stand at the Franklin tonight (12/29) at 8:30 pm before heading up to play December 30 and 31 at 7 pm at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, New Jersey.Setlist: Dark Star Orchestra | Franklin Music Hall | Philadelphia, PA | 12/28/18Set 1: Feel Like a Stranger, Franklin’s Tower, New Minglewood Blues, Row Jimmy, Far From Me, When I Paint My Masterpiece, Sugaree, Hell in a BucketSet 2: China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider, Cumberland Blues, Man Smart (Woman Smarter), Drums > Space, The Wheel, Truckin’, Smokestack Lightning, Black Peter, Sugar MagnoliaEncore: Black Muddy Riverlast_img read more

Food Security Council creates plan of action

first_imgThe West Side Food Security Council — a coalition of 16 community leaders and six Notre Dame students — met Jan. 28 to create a plan of action in addressing the problem of food insecurity in South Bend. Student government’s eND Hunger campaign, an initiative of the student body president Catherine Soler and student body vice president Andrew Bell’s administration, led the council’s formation. Beth Simpson, chair of the campaign, said residents are not having trouble with the amount of food so much as the type of food they have access to. “There’s a high percentage of South Bend residents who experience food insecurity. Food security is the more proper way to describe hunger in America today,” she said. “Americans today aren’t struggling with a lack of food in general but rather a lack of healthy food options.” Simpson said a crucial initial step in addressing the issue was soliciting community feedback. “We sought first of all to gauge what it is the community articulates as its needs,” she said. This feedback was fielded during three meetings with the council, the third of which resulted in two solutions for food insecurity, the first of which is in the form of direct aid for families eligible for food stamps. “The fund will double the value of purchases made by food stamps and WIC [Women Infants Children] on local, healthy produce,” she said. “Our council, right now, is seeking to articulate the exact structure of this fund as well as beginning to look into funding opportunities.” The second facet of the plan is a community center focused on nutrition-related issues. The Student International Business Council will be heading up the business planning of the center, which will be constructed in the LaSalle Square area — an area of high poverty. “It’s one of the regions of highest poverty, around LaSalle Square. It’s an identified food desert, so there is no access to a grocery store,” she said. “Within the two mile radius of LaSalle square, 28 percent of the residents have a [household] income of less than $15,000, and 50 percent have an income of less than $28,000 a year, meaning 50 percent of them are food-stamp eligible.” The community center would house the Urban Garden Market, one of the non-profits whose leaders serve on the council. The center could also hold a small-scale grocer and possibly house the Purple Porch Co-op, another member of the council, which could potentially vend produce to residents. Simpson said the center would also serve as a place for residents to engage the problem of food insecurity personally. “Our center will have a kitchen in it. That kitchen will be used for cooking demonstrations and nutritional education,” she said. “We’re also looking into how to incorporate micro-venturing within the center. We recognize sustainability is key but most important is that the community has ownership and is invested.” The council’s work, Simpson said, is a unique opportunity for the Notre Dame community to work with the South Bend community in a multitude of ways. “It’s exciting for Notre Dame students because this is an entirely organic initiative. The council arose because of the vision of Notre Dame student government and the Center for Social Concerns coming together,” she said. After the council meets on the Feb. 18 to break into subcommittees, Simpson plans to hold an informational meeting for students looking to get involved, tentatively scheduled for Feb. 21. “I encourage interested students to attend the meeting on the 21st and also just to contact me at [email protected]” Simpson said the council’s work is a natural extension of the University’s mission as a Catholic institution. “It’s Catholic identity is one thing that distinguishes this University, in particular that our academics are driven by a core set of values, among them service to the community,” she said. “This initiative represents a means by which students can engage through service, academics and direct involvement in the community to live out the University’s Catholic mission.”last_img read more

Christian Daycare Workers Fired for Refusing to Call a Little Girl a Boy

first_imgBreitbart.com 6 November 2015Two daycare workers have been fired for refusing to go along with the center’s transgender agenda. Madeline Kirksey, one of the workers who is an author of a Christian book, says her religious liberty rights have been violated. The two were fired after refusing to call a little girl a boy.The two male parents of a six-year-old little girl told employees at the school to refer to their daughter as a boy, and to call her by a new masculine name. The little girl’s hair had also been cut like a boy’s.Kirksey told Breitbart Texas in an interview, that the problem was not so much with the transgender issue as it was with telling young children that the little girl was a boy when she was not, and with calling her “John” (not the name given) when that was not her name.Keep up with family issues in NZ.

Julia Chandler acclimates to stretch-4 role with Bria Day back in rotation

first_img Published on December 6, 2016 at 9:21 pm Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21 When Bria Day sat out with a nagging injury, Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman toyed with several rotations. Many of them featured then-back up center Julia Chandler, a 6-foot-2 sophomore subbing in for starter Briana Day. Chandler appeared uncomfortable in a position, “I’ve never really played before.” The natural forward faced playing the 5, which meant handling bigger bodies on both ends of the floor.As Bria Day eases her way back, Chandler can now play forward once again. Syracuse doesn’t have a reliable first player to come off the bench, but Chandler may be emerging as one. She’s acclimating to the stretch-4, a position in which she’s more comfortable because it allows her to rove the perimeter, shoot 3s and face up from midrange. Rather than play the backup 5, she can better space the floor for No. 20 Syracuse (6-3).“That was always the plan once we got Bria back healthy,” Hillsman said. “To get her out facing the basket more.”Against Michigan State on Nov. 30, Chandler stepped into a 3-pointer from the corner. She drained the triple, for her fourth long make in two games. She’s up to 24 3-point tries on the season, having attempted only 47 during her rookie year. It’s been a natural transition for someone with Chandler’s comfort level outside.SU hasn’t gotten consistent production from its bigs, other than Briana Day. With starting forward Isabella Slim struggling, Chandler could come off the bench earlier. Such was the case against Central Connecticut State on Sunday, when Hillsman signaled for Chandler to enter after Slim didn’t get a rebound on the first possession of the game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhen Bria Day returned to the second unit at Drexel on Nov. 21, Chandler didn’t see the court. Losing Day for any longer may have challenged a relatively lean rotation, considering Chandler’s early-season struggles. She’s looked awkward at times, turning the ball over on dropped passes and losing her pivot foot, resulting in multiple travels.Chandler went 5-for-7 from 3 over the next three games. And though she’s hit only one of her last 11 3-point tries, she’s more confident, her release cleaner, her jump higher and follow-through more extended.“There was a turning point in my mind where I was just like, I might as well just accept I’m a stretch-4,” Chandler said.Whether she plays more outside or near the basket depends on the defense, offensive play and score of the game. Her greatest asset, wherever she is on the floor, is her ability to draw opposing forwards out of the lane. Part of this can be attributed to more Syracuse pick-and-pops than when she played center, and part of it is thanks to her 3-point shot.Chandler can now screen for point guard Alexis Peterson up top, then pop, whereas before she mostly rolled.Finding the balance between perimeter and paint has not been easy for Chandler, who is sometimes out of place on offensive sets. Hillsman has waved her to move or set an off-ball screen. On the opposite end, she’s been more effective defending guards.“She’s not very good yet defensively with bigs,” SU assistant coach Tammi Reiss said.Chandler has flaws. She’s committed only six turnovers this season, but has hardly rebounded, averaging a measly 2.5 per game.“It’s clearly something for improvement,” Chandler said.To continue molding into a true stretch-4, Chandler acknowledges she needs to attack the glass better. But for now, Hillsman will take another evolving perimeter player who can shoot.“We’re making like seven to eight 3s a game,” Hillsman said. “With Julia, we’re making closer to 10. So we need those two or three more 3s a game because it changes us from being a second-round team to a championship-level team.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

(Photo by Keith Birmingham, Pasadena Star-News/SCNG)ExpandLOS ANGELES — God bless, Mary Hart. She stayed for the whole thing, getting almost as much screen time as she ever did on “Entertainment Tonight.”Hart and her fellow Dodgers fans were finally rewarded when Max Muncy hit the latest walk-off home run in World Series history, giving the Dodgers a 3-2 victory in 18 innings and ending the longest game (by time and innings) in World Series history early Saturday morning.“Just a stupid experience for everybody,” summarized David Freese, the last position player to enter the game (as a pinch-hitter in the 14th inning).“We’re looking to even it up tomorrow. Bottom line.” The home run was the improbable 38th in an impossible dream of a season for Muncy who started it as a non-roster invitee to spring training, shipped out to Triple-A to start the season.“It’s been a dream. … This whole year has been a surreal experience,” Muncy said.“What a dude,” Freese summarized again. “He came from Oakland, made some adjustments, dropped down in his stance, kept his eye and started blasting baseballs.”It was worth the wait for the Dodgers who are now guaranteed to – at least – play through the weekend at Dodger Stadium.“It was a must-win for us,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “Our guys just persevered. It wasn’t pretty.“We’re feeling pretty good about ourselves right now, to have two more games at home. … I know it’s a lot better feeling than we had after Game 1 and Game 2.” L.A. strikes first! Joc Pederson goes deep to give the @Dodgers a 1-0 lead. pic.twitter.com/D6o0czce1X— FOX Sports: MLB (@MLBONFOX) October 27, 2018 Tomorrow was already here.When the clock struck midnight in the 17th inning, it got a rousing cheer from the crowd in the stadium. Long before then, the game had devolved into that staple of California TV – a car chase you couldn’t look away from, too much invested to turn it off and go to bed before seeing how much damage would be done in the end.The 7-hour, 20-minute marathon exhausted the resources of both teams – 46 of a possible 50 players were used. Boston’s eight relievers included their Game 2 starter (David Price) and their scheduled Game 4 starter (Nathan Eovaldi).“I’m tired,” said Dodgers outfielder Cody Bellinger, one of 10 players who played all 18 innings. “But I feel a lot better being 2-1 than being down 3-0.”Indeed. The Dodgers played the entire game on the razor’s edge of falling down a likely-fatal three games to none. Now they will turn around in a mere 16½ hours and send … somebody to the mound with a chance to even the series. “Gotta get some sleep,” Dodgers left-hander Rich Hill said in the post-game locker room after answering a series of questions about starting Game 4.A few minutes later, Dodgers PR sent out an announcement saying the team’s Game 4 starter was … TBA – raising the question of what happened before Hill got to bed.“How do you spell that – TBA? TBA,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora when asked about his team’s pitching plans for Game 4.Boston’s TBA was supposed to be Nathan Eovaldi. But Cora turned to him in the 12th inning of Game 3 and Eovaldi threw 97 pitches and allowes just three hits over six-plus innings. He is the first reliever to throw five innings or more in a World Series game since Madison Bumgarner in Game 7 of the 2014 Series for the Giants.“The effort was amazing,” Cora said of the losing pitcher. “We kept talking to him. ‘I’m good. I’m good. I’m good.’”The two-time Tommy John survivor (and former Dodger) earned respect from both sides of the field.“Just an insane outing,” Freese said. “You start thinking about Bumgarner. At least, I did. Eovaldi did such a great job for them. Just an animal.”That’s how long the game lasted – Walker Buehler’s start was a faded memory by the time it ended.The Dodgers got seven brilliant innings from Buehler, survived a blown save by Kenley Jansen, saved the game with great defense in the 10th, nearly lost it with poor defense in the 13th and tied the score in the bottom of the 13th only when the Red Sox bungled a run across for them.Did you get all that?Clayton Kershaw appeared as a pinch-hitter (and flew out in the 17th). Eighteen of his fellow pitchers actually made it to the mound and threw a combined 561 pitches. Muncy was a possible goat – he left first uncovered in the 13th-inning mishap and struck out after launching a drive just foul down the right field line in the 15th.Then he was the hero, extending Eovaldi for seven pitches to start the 18th and finally launching a full-count cutter over the wall in left-center field.“The at-bat before (in the 15th), he got me on a really good backdoor cutter,” Muncy said. “He had really good stuff all night long and he wasn’t missing a spot. Next at-bat, he tried to go backdoor cutter again but he left this one a little over the plate. And thankfully for me, he did that because I was able to get my bat on it.”Related Articles Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Walker Buehler has Dodger Stadium ROCKING after that strike out 🔥 pic.twitter.com/Y2GMWSfDnY— FOX Sports (@FOXSports) October 27, 2018 Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start That moment when you start a World Series game and completely shut down a 100+ win team. pic.twitter.com/HuL5qy9KSD— FOX Sports: MLB (@MLBONFOX) October 27, 2018 How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire last_img read more
