Almost exactly a year after their first-ever collaboration, Joe Russo, Marco Benevento, Tom Hamilton, Dave Dreiwitz, and Scott Metzger welcomed the Dead & Company guitarist and vocalist to close the first set with an 18+ minute “Althea.” Appropriately, fans were giddy in shock and awe as the guitarists traded licks and smiles, but interestingly not vocals.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Busts Out Rare Radiohead Cover During A Wild Night 4 At Brooklyn BowlJohn Mayer returned to the stage for a scorching second set, joining the band in true jam fashion that eventually segued into “Here Comes Sunshine” and “New Minglewood Blues.” Watching the guest guitarist perform alongside the Grateful Dead reinventors brought true joy to those in attendance—as the band before the audience’s eyes is, by definition, a direct result of the music-loving souls in that very room. The Fall Ball is the Autumnal cousin of the annual Freak’s Ball, organized by the famous Freaks List of New York. The Almost Dead originally formed as a one-off band for the 2013 edition of the long-running Freaks Ball, and the band holds a special relationship with the group of fans who helped mold them. It’s only appropriate that the band still successfully exists, selling out show after show, welcoming an impressive roster of Grateful Dead, and company, members along the way—and that we get to celebrate the fact together at this semi-annual shindig.The second set continued in high gear, with the rebirth of “Lazy Lightning,” which had not been played by the Almost Dead since Valentines Day of 2016 at Higher Ground, Winooski, VT. The quintet also debuted their version of “China Doll,” with teases of Led Zeppelin‘s “No Quarter” and Pink Floyd‘s “Run Like Hell.” The second set closed with an enormous “I Know You Rider,” before the band and their special guest returned for another satisfying encore. After a beautiful piano solo from Marco, the band and Mayer delivered a soul-stirring version of Dr. John‘s “Such A Night” before closing Friday night with a huge “Franklin’s Tower.” While John Mayer’s sit-in was certainly appreciated, JRAD fans agree that the core five are best influenced by their own synergy. Part of what makes the band so special is their intention to launch songs with surprise twists and turns, and their ability to do that is severely limited by an “other” on the stage. Despite that fact, we’ll welcome John Mayer’s May-RAD any time—or at the very least, once a year.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead returns to the stage tonight for their sixth and final sold-out night of Fall Ball at the Brooklyn Bowl.Watch “Althea” below, courtesy of TimeZonerTV:Thanks to Moni Hampton, you can watch “Here Comes Sunshine” and “Franklin’s Tower” below:last_img read more

Mao Sugiyama, of Tokyo, has been charged with indecent exposure more than two months after the headline-grabbing meal, which five patrons shelled out $250 to consume, according to News On Japan.WARNING: Graphic descriptions below.The 23-year-old self-described “asexual” and three other people who helped organize the event face charges, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.Before turning 22, Sugiyama underwent elective genital-removal surgery. The severed penis, testicles, and scrotal skin were divided up and garnished with button mushrooms and Italian parsley.An MPD spokeswoman told AFP that the four suspects conspired to “openly display the severed male genitals to the assembled 71 guests” at a music club on May 13.Sugiyama made sure to follow all laws, including a ban on organ sales, processing of medical waste and food sanitation requirements, according to comments cited by AFP from the artist.Sugiyama also said the dinner was designed to raise awareness about “sexual minorities, x-gender, asexual people.”The Japan Daily Press reports that, if convicted of indecent exposure, Sugiyama could face up to two years in jail and a fine of roughly $32,000.Indecent exposure in Japan is described as displaying obscene objects, according to the Japan Daily Press.

Foxes fight back to stun Liverpool

first_img Press Association Liverpool squandered a somewhat fortuitous lead as a battling Leicester side stunned their hosts with two goals in as many second-half minutes to draw 2-2. Danny Simpson definitely handballed for the second spot-kick, which saw Liverpool become the first team to score 100 Premier League penalties, but Leicester hit back after the break through substitute David Nugent and Jeffrey Schlupp. Two points dropped against a side which only just ended a run of 13 matches without a win is not the sort of thing required to mount a challenge for the Champions League places and Liverpool – missing Mario Balotelli after an injury in training on Wednesday – ended the day further off the top four than when they started it. Leicester had created the majority of the chances as their hosts struggled to regain the fluidity they displayed in Monday’s victory over Swansea. Riyad Mahrez had three of his own in the first half-hour, two free-kicks from identical positions – one of which hit the post with goalkeeper Simon Mignolet beaten after just 66 seconds – and another from Schlupp’s low left-wing cross. The Foxes knew from their encounter at home a month ago, when they took the lead but ended up losing 3-1, they could not afford to squander opportunities. One player who was excelling among the Reds’ mediocrity was Philippe Coutinho, who had a hand in both penalties. Having struggled for form the Brazil international has flourished in an inside-forward role alongside Adam Lallana and behind central striker Raheem Sterling in recent weeks. One early diagonal ball over the top to Jordan Henderson was played to perfection and ruined only by the midfielder starting his run too early and being flagged offside. After back-to-back wins the new year was supposed to usher in the beginning of the Reds’ drive towards the top four but the same old defensive frailties were exposed by the league’s bottom team. Leicester will argue a point was the least they deserved after the home side were gifted the first of two Steven Gerrard penalties when referee Mike Jones ruled the ball had hit Wes Morgan’s hand when it was in fact his head. It was Coutinho’s pass to Sterling which produced the first, controversial, penalty as when the England international tried to cut the ball back it hit Morgan. Jones ruled it was his hand but television replays showed it was his face. Gerrard did not waste too much time worrying about it as he tucked away the spot-kick. Lifted from their slumber Liverpool raised their game in the final third of the pitch with Lallana directing a header wide and firing past the far post after shifting Alberto Moreno’s cross from right foot to left on the edge of the area. The second penalty was all Coutinho’s doing as his weaving run saw the ball bounce up and hit Simpson’s hand. There were no arguments this time and Gerrard went the other side to goalkeeper Ben Hamer’s right. An indicator of confidence came when Henderson almost scored a goal of the season contender with a brilliant volley direct from Gerrard’s corner. Leicester, understandably aggrieved with the officials’ performance, upped the tempo after the break and only a perfectly-timed tackle from the ever-improving Mamadou Sakho prevented Jamie Vardy taking advantage of Kolo Toure’s slip. But after Dean Hammond had missed a free-header from Matty James’ flick-on at a corner there was a significant momentum change within less than two minutes. In the 58th minute substitute Nugent volleyed home brilliantly from Vardy’s knockdown and with Liverpool still reeling from that, Schlupp beat Mignolet from the edge of the area just 100 seconds later. Late in the game Rodgers made a number of formation switches as Lazar Markovic and Fabio Borini – and later Rickie Lambert – were sent on in an attempt to salvage two dropped points. Borini had a couple of attempts, one blocked by Markovic, and then proceeded to get in the way of a thunderbolt from Coutinho before a clumsy challenge on him by Morgan could have resulted in a third penalty but the referee was not in that generous a mood. last_img read more
