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:
New Mexico regulators approve utility plan to shut San Juan coal plant, sell Four Corners stake FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Santa Fe New Mexican:The state Public Regulation Commission on Wednesday unanimously accepted a Public Service Company of New Mexico three-year plan that calls for shuttering two coal-fired power plants in the northwestern part of the state and more reliance on renewable energy, along with natural gas and nuclear energy.Every three years, PNM files an Integrated Resource Plan as a general road map of how the company plans to provide cost-effective, reliable energy.Patrick O’Connell, the utility’s director of planning and resources, said after the meeting that commission acceptance of the plan is just a first step. Next year, he said, the utility will submit specifics on the closing of the San Juan Generating Station — the first power plant it wants to shutter — by 2022. PNM plans to close the nearby Four Corners Power Plant by 2031.It took the commission more than a year to accept the PNM plan. Civic leaders in San Juan County and the city of Farmington wanted to see more specific plans for easing the economic pain expected when the power plants and adjacent coal mines are closed.Some environmentalists also objected. Santa Fe-based New Energy Economy had argued that the plan should include more solar and wind energy than what PNM proposes.More: PRC accepts PNM integrated resource plan

They see marketing messages everywhere they look and on every channel they engage with. Making matters worse, the vast majority of these consumers engage with one of your well-trained customer service representatives less than they ever have in the past. Bottom line, financial marketers have their work cut out for them.The only viable and potentially scalable solution is content that is so personalized and relevant that it’s impossible to ignore. We need to look for ways to communicate to an ‘audience of one,’ using artificial intelligent (AI) systems that constantly work in the background to enhance every step of the customer journey. We need to leverage new tools that were previously only available to the very largest companies with huge support staffs.True personalization at scale requires advanced analytics, which is why banks and credit unions of all sizes are using AI and machine learning to customize all components of the marketing mix. Your marketing team can no longer postpone using AI-powered solutions in your content development, offer selection, segmentation and targeting, website integration, customer service/support, product pricing and churn management.
