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

Jobs Act cuts loan fees for Vermont small businesses

first_imgOn September 27, 2010, President Obama signed the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 into law, putting more resources into the hands of small businesses so they can create more jobs and retain those they already have.  The Act will make a tangible difference to scores of Vermont businesses waiting in the US Small Business Administration’s loan queue. After the Recovery Act passed in February of last year, the SBA was able to help small businesses get Recovery loans by reducing or eliminating loan fees and increasing the SBA-backed guarantee to 90 percent.  When the funds for these loans were exhausted, SBA activated a Recovery Loan Queue as a sequential ‘holding tank’ for businesses interested in waiting for the availability of additional funds, either through the cancellation of previously-approved loans or through Congressional extension of Recovery Act programs.  With the Jobs Act in place, an additional $14 billion in SBA loan programs will be available to eligible small businesses once the agency receives its funding.  The Jobs Act will have an immediate impact on Vermonters waiting in the loan queue, one of whom is a Northeast Kingdom entrepreneur with a start-up loan of $750,000, and a fee savings of $23,625. Another Vermont business patiently waiting for his loan will be pleased to know he is saving nearly $5,000 in loan fees.  Thomas A. Coleman, DDS, of Brandon, Vermont said the purpose of his loan will be ‘to repay my accounts payable and to keep my employees on the payroll.’  Coleman has five part-time and four full-time employees.  In practical terms, the $5,000 he will save can be redirected towards working capital for any number of needs, such as purchasing equipment or retaining employees. The multi-faceted Jobs Act also makes a permanent increase to SBA’s maximum loan amount, from $2 million to $5 million.  ‘With the Act’s higher loan limits, higher size standards and reduced or eliminated fees, more of Vermont’s small businesses will now be eligible for and benefit from SBA loan program,’ said Darcy Carter, District Director, SBA Vermont District Office.Source: SBA. 10.1.2010last_img read more

Pellegrini prepares for City debut

first_img Almost four weeks after his appointment at the Etihad Stadium, the Chilean is due to be formally unveiled alongside new signing Fernandinho at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon. It will be held at the club’s training ground just hours before Pellegrini and the majority of his squad fly to South Africa for the first leg of their pre-season tour. Manuel Pellegrini is set to face the media for the first time as Manchester City manager. City, who reported back for training this week, are also participating in the Barclays Asia Trophy in Hong Kong this month before playing a tournament in Munich and a friendly against Arsenal in Helsinki. Pellegrini’s first match in charge will be against SuperSport United in Pretoria on Sunday before City face AmaZulu FC in Durban a week on Thursday. City have announced that Argentina pair Sergio Aguero and Pablo Zabaleta will not join the squad until next week after being granted extra time off following international duty last month. David Silva and Jesus Navas, who both played in the recent Confederations Cup for Spain, are excused until the event in Hong Kong. Having now met most of his players, Pellegrini will have the chance to outline his plans for the coming season as he meets the press. The 59-year-old left Malaga to succeed Roberto Mancini, who paid the price for the club’s regression last season. The Italian was sacked in the final week of the campaign after the club had surrendered their Barclays Premier League title and were surprisingly beaten by Wigan in the FA Cup final. The high-profile arrival of Pellegrini, added to those of Fernandinho and Navas for a combined initial cost of almost £45million, have since heralded a summer of change. City continue to be linked with numerous other targets despite appearing to have been priced out of a move for £53million-rated Napoli striker Edinson Cavani and losing out to Real Madrid for playmaker Isco. Former captain Carlos Tevez has also left the club for Juventus amid the changes. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Mitroglou axed for Blues clash

first_img “Kostas is a very dangerous striker, but in this league you have to be fit if you are to be ready to score,” Magath said. “Next weekend (against Cardiff on March 8) I’m convinced that he will be back in the squad.” Magath is hoping to capitalise on Chelsea’s Champions League fatigue when Fulham attempt to climb off the foot of the table by defeating the Premier League leaders. The Blues were held to 1-1 draw against Galatasaray in Istanbul on Wednesday night and Magath insists they will have been drained by the travel. “When a team has played in the Champions League, it is always an advantage,” Magath said. “We are lucky that Chelsea have had such a long trip to Istanbul to play on Wednesday. It’s a good situation for us. “I remember the situation – you have to stay at the airport, fly for a few hours and then play the game at night. “Players can’t sleep so well and are tired and then they have to spend more time at the airport. It bothers the players a lot. New Fulham boss Felix Magath has dropped £12million striker Kostas Mitroglou for Saturday’s west London derby against Chelsea. Press Association “It gives us a chance. Chelsea are favourites, everyone knows that, but we’ll try to fight and make a fast game. “If we pressurise Chelsea then we have a good chance to win the game.” Fernando Amorebieta and Damien Duff are in the Whites’ treatment room, but Darren Bent returns after missing the West Brom match for personal reasons. Chelsea manager Mourinho will assess the fatigue levels of his squad following their midweek Champions League trip to Istanbul. David Luiz (groin) and John Obi Mikel (calf) are among those being checked, as are midfielder Oscar (ankle) and striker Fernando Torres. Nemanja Matic and Mohamed Salah were cup-tied in Europe so should feature, but midfielder Marco van Ginkel is continuing his rehabilitation from his serious knee injury. Mourinho has backed the claims of midfielder Frank Lampard that the Barclays Premier League has to do more to help clubs in Europe with fixture schedules. The Blues have little recovery time following their midweek Champions League trip to Istanbul, having arrived back in the early hours of Thursday morning, before heading into the west London derby with Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon. Mourinho’s squad trained at Stamford Bridge on Thursday afternoon before the players headed off to their usual pre-match hotel at Chelsea Harbour. Clubs who play in the Europa League on Thursday evenings are allowed to push their next domestic matches back to a Sunday kick-off, but there is no such dispensation for Champions League fixtures. The Portuguese manager, whose side are top of the Premier League, insists Lampard was right to speak out against what he sees as poor planning, with little consideration for fatigue on players. “We all prefer to play game after game after game, but we all want to play game after game with conditions to recover, with equal conditions for every team, and no sense that a team has a privilege in the choices, and every team in the same country has the same privilege to be a little bit protected in relation to European matches,” said Mourinho, who will assess the fatigue levels of his squad before making a final team selection. “It makes the players’ job difficult, not my job. “I can play a match every day, it is not a problem for me or the people who make the fixtures. I don’t run, they don’t run. It’s difficult for the players. “When a player like Frank Lampard, who has a right to speak and has played an unbelievable number of seasons and matches in this club, and over 100 times for England, and is not the kind of player who is trying to give an opinion all the time, so when a player like him, and a man like him, expresses his feelings about that, this country should listen.” Mitroglou made his debut in last weekend’s 1-1 Barclays Premier League draw at West Brom, but will not participate when Jose Mourinho’s side visit Craven Cottage. Magath insists the Greece forward, a deadline-day signing bought to fill the void created by Dimitar Berbatov’s departure, is not yet ready for the demands of English football. last_img read more

Clippers are no fans of Donald Trump’s ‘locker room talk’

first_imgPLAYA VISTA >> Maybe it was the rhetoric about Muslims, refugees or immigrants. Maybe it was good old fashioned partisanship. Or maybe it was an excuse used by Presidential candidate Donald Trump.However we got here, we’ve reached a point where the Clippers aren’t going to keep their opinions silent.When asked about leaked comments about women from the politician, a few Clippers didn’t hold back.In fact, they moved on him. “That would step past G,” he said. “Or PG. Or PG-13. Or R.”Rivers, a longtime NBA veteran as a player and coach, also said Trump’s comments didn’t occur in any locker room he’s ever been. But to him, there was a deeper problem.“They’re bad comments. They’re demeaning to women. I have a daughter,” Rivers said. “When people throw out that (term) ‘locker room talk,’ there’s nobody talking like that in the locker room. Is there swearing in the locker room? Every other word. But, there’s nobody demeaning people. There are players in our locker room with sisters, wives and daughters. There’s not that type of talk in anyone’s locker room. That bothered me when I heard it, but what bothered me more was the original tape. I didn’t need the other thing to bother me.“It’s what we’re in right now, talking about that instead of policy and education. That’s the biggest crime.”The Presidential campaign has caused a spike in political conversations within and around the Clipper team so far this season.During training camp, the team gathered to watch most of the first Presidential debate. Rivers asked the media what they thought about it. Players like J.J. Redick didn’t hesitate to share their views.“It’s embarrassing that Donald Trump is a candidate. It really is,” he told reporters after the first debate. “…That guy, man…just awful.”Griffin said the political conversations are nothing like the ones he had with his Clipper teammates four years ago when Barack Obama was running for a second term against Mitt Romney, that this election has elicited more passion and interest within the team.And, it’s led to some interesting locker room talk.“I remember having conversations but not to this extent” Griffin said. “It’s a little different this time around; it’s pretty obvious. Whoever you going for, whoever you’re with or not with, this is a completely different campaign. These debates have been wild, like must-see TV. I stopped watching Monday Night Football. It’s different; it’s unique – not really in a good way.” “Honestly, thinking about him having a chance to run our country is scary to me,” Clippers guard Jamal Crawford said.Trump, who was caught on tape saying “You can do anything” to women when you’re a star, including grabbing them by the genitals, called the comments “locker room talk” as part of his apology.As people who spend time in professional locker rooms, Crawford, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and Doc Rivers all disputed the characterization of their workplace.“I’ve been in a lot of locker rooms and been on a lot of busses and been mic’d up a lot,” Griffin said. “I’ve never heard those types of things said. To just attribute it to locker room talk, it kind of gives guys who spend a lot of time in locker rooms a bad name.”While no one claimed that the chatted in locker rooms always stays G-rated, Griffin said Trump’s comments passed that threshold.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
