JRAD Debuts Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Band Covers At Brooklyn Bowl Finale [Videos]

March 2, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: mtxrtiwaj.

first_imgJoe Russo’s Almost Dead wrapped up their three-night run at the Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday night, delivering yet another stand-out evening of Grateful Dead music that was nowhere near short of surprises. With multiple debut covers, endless teases, and sublime jamming, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead once again proved why they’re more than just a “cover band”.Right off the bat, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead opened the first set with a debut cover of The Rolling Stones‘ “The Last Time”, with Scott Metzger on vocals. The jam led straight into an appropriate “Shakedown Street”, which featured teases of Radiohead‘s “Myxomatosis” and was left unfinished. Immediately from there, the Radiohead teases continued on “The Other One”, which also teased “Estimated Prophet”. As the band’s manager Peter Costello notes in the Box Score, this show had “a lot of ins and outs”, as the Grateful Dead-inspired quintet muscled their chops through to the finish line. Watch the first set opener below, courtesy of nugs.tv.[Video: Nugs.tv]The seamless jams continued from “The Other One” to “Mission in the Rain”, which had not been played by JRAD since the band’s 3/17/17 show at the same venue, a 41 show gap. “Crazy Fingers” came next with a stand-out jam between keyboardist Marco Benevento and guitarist Tom Hamilton. The band utilized the notes of a quick “Last Time” instrumental jam to bridge the gap between “Crazy Fingers” and “Truckin’”, before closing the first set with a short instrumental jam of “The Other One”, a trick not utilized by JRAD since their 3/11/17 show at the same venue, a 43 show gap.After their break, the second set opened with a “Scarlet Begonias”-esque jam, which led into a short instrumental version of “Slipknot!”, before locking into the debut performance of “Foolish Heart”, sung by Tom Hamilton. “I Need A Miracle” came next, with unfamiliar teases coming from Hamilton, as well as a jam through WOLF‘s “Fastso’s Last Stand”. Watch the second set opener below.[Video: Nugs.tv]An energetic “Franklin’s Tower” followed, with full-band teases of “Foolish Heart” and “Throwing Stones”. Eventually, the song shifted into a full version of “Throwing Stones”, which thematically teased back “Franklin’s Tower” and “Foolish Heart”. The debut of Led Zeppelin‘s “Good Times Bad Times” came next as a full instrumental, before segueing back into “Throwing Stones”. Another debut followed, with a partial version of The Band‘s “Chest Fever”, as sung by drummer Joe Russo with some help from Tom Hamilton. Naturally, the second set concluded with a “Throwing Stones” reprise.The evening came to a definitive end with a reliable “One More Saturday Night” to close Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s three-night run at the Brooklyn Bowl. Next up, the band heads to Syracuse’s Landmark Theatre and Portland’s State Theatre.

Erdogan defends Turkey religious chief’s anti-gay sermon

October 19, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: yvkwizsuw.

first_imgBut Erdogan dismissed the criticism, saying  “an attack against the Diyanet chief is an attack on the state” before adding: “What he said was totally right.”Erdogan’s allies have attempted to shut down criticism of Erbas — Ankara prosecutors have opened a probe into the bar association for “insulting the religious values adopted by a section of society” and Diyanet has made a criminal complaint against the lawyers.”Ali Erbas, who voiced divine judgment, is not alone,” said Erdogan’s spokesman, Ibrahim Kalin, on Twitter — echoing a popular hashtag.The spokesman for Erdogan’s ruling Islamic-rooted party, Omer Celik, insisted Erbas’s comments were consistent with democratic values.  Topics : “Everyone has the fundamental right to speak in Turkey based on whatever value system they believe in,” Celik said on Twitter.On the other side, gay rights group Kaos GL said the religious chief had “spewed hatred” with “unscientific claims” and the Ankara-based Human Rights Association said it would file a legal complaint against him.Diyanet was established in 1924 to oversee religion in secular Turkey after the abolition of the Islamic Caliphate in the wake of the Ottoman Empire’s collapse.Critics say the organization has an outsized budget and is a  symbol of creeping conservatism under Erdogan, despite Turkey being formally secular.Although homosexuality has been legal throughout modern Turkey’s history, gay people regularly face harassment and abuse.In recent years, LGBT events have been blocked including Istanbul Pride, which has been banned five years in a row after taking place every year since 2003.center_img Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday defended a top religious official who claimed homosexuality caused diseases, corrupted people and was condemned in Islamic teaching.Ali Erbas, head of a state-funded agency called the Diyanet, which runs mosques and appoints imams, also claimed during his weekly sermon that homosexuality caused HIV.The Ankara bar association of lawyers accused him of inciting hatred against gay people while ignoring child abuse and misogyny. last_img read more

British racing elevates sponsorship opportunities

August 30, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: zuwmcftfp.

first_img The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has announced that advertising on British racecourses will join other major sports by featuring digital LED (light-emitting diode) displays on the landing side of fences. The move to expand the sport’s sponsorship opportunities comes following a consultation with the courses, the Racecourse Association (RCA) and participants including trainers and jockeys – as well as trials of equipment developed by sports marketing agency Priority Sports Marketing. The LED displays, which are battery powered and therefore carry no electrocution risk must be static when runners are in the vicinity of the fences – i.e. going to post or competing in a race – but otherwise they will allow for more creative visual advertising and the opportunity to switch between advertisers and sponsors for different races on a card.Richard Linley, Senior Inspector of Courses for the BHA, stated: “LED displays are used widely in other sports and provide for a more modern appearance and greater flexibility for racecourses, which we hope will help them generate greater revenue from advertisement and sponsorship.“The proposals have been tested extensively and received the support of racecourses and the participants who will be riding over the fences and whose horses will be competing in races. The displays are on the landing side of fences so will not affect participants and will be static during races so the viewing experience for those watching the races will not be impacted.”Caroline Davies, Racecourse Services Director for the RCA added: “I am pleased to see LED screens arrive to British racing and look forward to seeing these introduced in the coming months. They will unquestionably enhance the raceday experience and also will open up valuable opportunities for our sponsors and supporters which in turn open new income streams for our members. The technology is state of the art and will add a further layer of engagement, both on-course and for the television audience.” AllSported launches international trading service to cover racing shortfalls March 31, 2020 StumbleUpon UK Racing- Reduction in prize-money ‘inevitable’ once season resumes May 1, 2020 Related Articles Share Submit Share UK Racing pushes for drastic levy reforms as deep recession looms August 25, 2020last_img read more
