Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Plays “Standing On The Moon” After 2-Year Gap [Videos]

first_imgOn Saturday night, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead closed out their two-night run at Boston’s House Of Blues, marking the group’s final performances of 2017. Characteristic of the innovative Grateful Dead-inspired act, the final Boston show saw the group in proper form, offering up an energized mix of Dead tunes and other choice covers along with countless teases of other artists ranging across Michael Jackson (“Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough”), Herbie Hancock (“Tell Me A Bedtime Story”), Steve Miller (“Fly Like An Eagle”), Rod Stewart (“Do You Think I’m Sexy”), Suzanne Vega (“Tom’s Diner”), John Coltrane (“Love Supreme”), Bobby Brown (“My Prerogative”), and more.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Shares Full Audio Of LOCKN’ Set Featuring Bob Weir [Stream]Obviously a huge night for the band considering its placement as the group’s last shows of the year, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead managed to mix in a number of special songs into the setlist among tunes that more frequently see rotation during performances. After a show-opening cover of Chuck Berry’s “Promised Land”, the group hit a rousing rendition of “Shakedown Street” ahead of a jam built around John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme”. During this first set, the band also performed Jerry Garcia’s “Cats Under The Stars” for the third time ever and allowed Marco Benevento and Dave Dreiwitz to team up for an extended duo section during “Viola Lee’s Blues”.During the second set of the night, the band offered up the majority of its high-profile and sometimes hilarious teases. From the set-opening slinky rendition of “Feel Like A Stranger”, the band worked in tastes of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” and Suzanne Vega’s “Tom Diner” as well as a more traditional “Slipknot!” tease. From there, the band was off and sprinting toward the finish, with the second set also seeing a “flipped” version of “Eyes of the World”—the band started with the song’s ’73 ending played in the key of the song before it, “Dancing In The Streets”—as well as a rendition of “Standing On The Moon”, marking the first time the band has the 1989 Grateful Dead tune since October 2nd, 2015 at Brooklyn Bowl in New York City.“Viola Lee Blues” > “Cats Under The Stars”[Video: Brosef Wilson]“Standing On The Moon” > “Truckin’”[Video: monihampton]“Feel Like A Stranger”[Video: Jamey Klein]“Franklin’s Tower”[Video: Jamey Klein]You can check out the setlist for yourself below, plus stay tuned for announcements about Joe Russo’s Almost Dead’s highly anticipated performances in 2018!Setlist: Joe Russo’s Almost Dead | House Of Blues | Boston, MA | 12/9/2017Set One: Promised Land > Shakedown Street @ -> Jam # -> The Other One $ > Viola Lee Blues % > Cats Under The Stars ^, One More Saturday NightSet Two: Feel Like A Stranger & -> Franklin’s Tower > Dancing In The Streets * > Eyes Of The World + -> Jam @@ -> Let It Grow ## > Standing On The Moon $$> Truckin’ -> Music Never Stopped Jam -> Truckin’ Reprise -> Born Cross Eyed JamEncore: GDTRFB %% > WBYGN (Instrumental)@ – Unfinished# – With a “Love Supreme” (John Coltrane) Tease (TH or SM)$ – With a Playin Tease (Band)% – With a Throwin Stones Tease (Band), a China Cat Tease (TH), a DD/MB Duo Jam, with TH on Drums, & a “Shortnin’ Bread” (James Whitcomb Riley) Tease (MB)^ – With a “Walk Like An Egyptian” (The Bangles) tease (MB), a China Cat Tease (SM), a “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough” (Michael Jackson) Tease (SM) & a “St. Thomas” (Sonny Rollins) Tease (SM)& – With an Immigrant Song” (Led Zeppelin) Tease, a “Tom’s Diner” (Suzanne Vega) Tease (SM) and a Slipknot!

EPL: Ayew fires Palace past Watford

first_imgRelatedPosts EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U EPL: Red Devils attack Palace Townsend: Eze’s an incredible talent Crystal Palace extended their winning run in the Premier League and moved into the top half of the standings with a 1-0 win over Watford, thanks to a first-half strike from Jordan Ayew at Selhurst Park on Saturday. It was Palace’s third consecutive league win after a winless seven-game run and it moved Roy Hodgson’s side up to 10th in the standings — 12 points clear of the relegation zone. “From 30 (points) to 39 in three games is a fantastic lift,” Hodgson, who this week signed a one-year contract extension, told reporters. “I have such faith and confidence in this team and I really can’t see us letting that go and catapulting down the league, but you never know. Things do happen in football that no one can understand.” Ayew gave Palace the lead with their first shot on goal when James McArthur created an opportunity for him to take a shot from the edge of the box, beating the outstretched arm of Ben Foster in Watford’s goal. It was the second time in as many games that Ayew had scored the winner and he took his goal tally to eight goals this season. “We signed him in the summer, but we paid money to loan him last season and he has shown his worth,” Hodgson added. “I think he has got stronger and we saw signs last season. I’m delighted for him.” At the other end, Vicente Guaita denied Watford twice in the space of three minutes in the second half, first tipping a stinging long-range effort from Troy Deeney over the bar before keeping out Abdoulaye Doucoure’s looping header. Christian Benteke came close to doubling the lead when he attempted one of his trademark bicycle kicks, but despite making good contact with the ball he could only find the side netting. Watford won a corner in stoppage time to make for a nervy ending for the home support but Palace were able to hold firm to leave the visitors in 17th place in the standings.Tags: Billy SharpCrystal PalaceJames McArthurRoy HodgsonSelhurst ParkWatfordlast_img read more

Hope you have understood their feeling. (TS): What is your plan for the coming season? Nabin: I will try my best to play my natural game. ISL is a big league and coach has a lot of say in the team’s strategy. I will try to fulfill the responsibility that will be entrusted to me by the coach.

Trump applauds farright provocateurs during social media summit

first_imgSocial media news Donald Trump used a White House conference on social media to applaud far-right provocateurs, even as he conceded that some of them are extreme in their views.The White House had invited a number of social media pundits and Republican lawmakers to discuss “opportunities and challenges” of the internet.But the Trump administration did not include any representatives from major social media firms – including Facebook, Twitter or Google – instead inviting a mix of inflammatory internet personalities including rightwing Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe, pro-Trump activist Bill Mitchell, college Republican activist Charlie Kirk and Ben Garrison, a rightwing cartoonist who agreed not to attend amid widespread criticism from one of his virulently antisemitic cartoons.During the summit, the president repeatedly bragged about his large Twitter following and congratulated conservative attendees for communicating online “without having to go through the fake news filter”.Trump complained he has stopped gaining as many followers on social media, suggesting a conspiracy without providing any evidence.And he praised some of the most caustic voices on the right. “Some of you guys are out there,” he told them. “I mean it’s genius, but it’s bad,” Trump said.Trump later tweeted: Kari Paul in San Francisco and agencies Share via Email First published on Thu 11 Jul 2019 01.00 EDT Share on Facebook Donald Trump shakes hands with White House social media director Dan Scavino during a social media summit at the White House.Photograph: Evan Vucci/AP Twitter Share on Twitter Social media Share on WhatsApp Share on LinkedIn Since you’re here… Reuse this content Read more Facebook … we have a small favour to ask.

Share via Email Following the event, Trump tweeted he is directing his administration to explore regulatory and legislative solutions “to protect the free speech rights of all Americans”. The summit was followed by the president’s announcement in the Rose Garden he would abandon his effort to add a citizenship question to the census, but was moving forward with executive action for his administration to collect information on its own.Several of the social media summit attendees appeared in the Rose Garden, with former White House staffer Sebastian Gorka being caught on tape shouting at reporter Brian Karem, calling him “a punk”. Several attendees egged Gorka on, and one person threatened violence. Topics Share on Pinterest Donald Trump Support The Guardian Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe and activist Charlie Kirk attended the event, but no representatives from social media firms Google Share on Messenger Shares1,0331033 Share on Facebook Thu 11 Jul 2019 21.19 EDT The meeting on Thursday was the latest move from the Trump administration in response to its unsubstantiated claims that conservative voices are being discriminated against on social media platforms. In May, the White House launched a tool to allow users to report if they felt they had been censored on websites such as Facebook and Twitter.Because no stakeholders from the social media companies being criticized were invited to the event, it amounts to “more of a press conference than a summit”, said Joan Donovan, the director of the Technology and Social Change Research Project at Harvard’s Shorenstein Center.“Ultimately what is going on here is we are seeing a new form of adversarial media take shape,” she said. “Many of the people who are attending are avowedly partisan, and by banding together they are going to say they should be allowed to remain on platforms even if they break the terms of service.”Trump has repeatedly claimed, without evidence, that policies on major social media platforms and websites such as Google discriminate against conservatives. In May, the president tweeted support of far-right figures banned from Facebook and said he was “monitoring and watching, closely!!” In June, he tweeted that Twitter should let conservatives back on the platform, saying: “It’s called Freedom of Speech, remember.” Senator Ted Cruz is holding a hearing next week centered on allegations that Google censors conservative voices. Facebook’s terms of service ban individuals and organizations that “promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology”, which the company cited when it removed a number of rightwing pundits in May. Twitter’s terms of service prohibit “hateful conduct”, including threats or harassment on the basis of race, sexual orientation, gender or religion. It also bans “threats, glorifications of violence, bullying, targeted harassment and the incitement of others to harass”.Social justice groups have warned the summit on Thursday could call attention away from these rules and intimidate technology companies into allowing hate speech on their platforms. Muslim Advocates said it is encouraging social media platforms to ignore the summit on Thursday and instead focus on their content moderation strategies.“Enforcing basic standards of decency on social media isn’t censoring conservative speech. After all, countless conservatives continue to use these platforms without spreading bigotry,” the group said.The group is asking people to sign a petition calling on social media companies to ban hate speech.
