Chris Robinson Brotherhood Debuts Emotional Prince And Bob Dylan Covers [Watch]

first_imgLast night kicked off the first of two nights for the Chris Robinson Brotherhood at the Mystic Theatre in Petaluma. Gearing up for the release of the band’s upcoming studio album, Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel, the California opener included a list of new songs, “Forever As The Moon,” “Leave My Guitar Alone,” “Precious, Precious,” “Narcissus Soaking Wet,” and “California Hymn,” which were all debuted over the last week.Last night’s show introduced three more new songs, including an original, “Some Gardens Green, a Bob Dylan cover, “To Be Alone With You,” and, appropriate for the encore, a beautiful rendition of “Raspberry Beret” by none other than Prince. The love song came perfectly in response to the world’s shock in hearing of Prince’s death earlier in the day. We won’t find out which of these songs will make it onto the new album until the album’s release in July. According to Sir Robinson, Prince’s music is only played during special times on the band’s tour bus, specifically, when he and keyboardist Adam MacDougall “are fucked up,” he reveals.Thanks to nowiknowuryder, you can watch the Prince cover below:Chris Robinson Brotherhood at the Mystic Theatre in Petaluma, CA 4/21/16Set 1: Leave My Guitar Alone, Roan County Banjo, Eagles on the Highway, Meanwhile in the Gods…, California Hymn, It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue, Star or Stone, Beggar’s MoonSet 2: To Be Alone With You, Forever As the Moon, Oak Apple Day, Some Gardens Green, Precious, Precious, Ain’t It Hard But Fair, Narcissus Soaking Wet, Shore PowerEncore: Raspberry Beret, Stop That Train[H/T JamBase]last_img read more

Olympia Symphony Orchestra’s Gift to the Class of 2020

first_imgFacebook193Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Olympia Symphony OrchestraThe Olympia Symphony Orchestra (OSO) congratulates all the graduates in the Class of 2020. Although graduation ceremonies may look drastically different from what students and families imagined this year, it does not lessen the achievements that each has accomplished through hard work spent over the years. OSO musicians are presenting the traditional graduation march, Elgar’s ​Pomp & Circumstance, as a gift for all graduates in honor of their achievements. Individual musicians, many of whom are music educators in local public schools, recorded their parts individually from their homes. OSO Violinist Jason Leng, also an ophthalmologist, compiled the recordings to create a ​collaborative video​ that is posted on the ​Olympia Symphony’s YouTube channel​ and is being circulated on ​facebook. The OSO hopes this musical tribute helps fill the void experienced by high school and college graduates and loved ones during this challenging time. “I am the parent of a graduating high school senior. I always imagined seeing my son walk across the stage in front of his peers, while sitting side by side with our family and friends. Members of our orchestra are also parents. It is important to us to fill in whatever gaps we can in the absence of traditional ceremonies, and music is something that can expand to fill in missing pieces in our lives,” said Olympia Symphony executive director Jennifer Hermann. The Olympia Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1947 and operates as a 501c3 nonprofit charitable organization in Olympia, WA.

10 months agoLee Clark joins Tribalfootball: Newcastle & Fulham so special to me

first_imgLee Clark joins Tribalfootball: Newcastle & Fulham so special to meby Andrew Maclean10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveWe here at Tribalfootballare proud to announce our new guest columnist for 2019, former Newcastle United and Fulham midfielder Lee Clark.Lee brings with him almost 30 years of experience playing and managing in the Premier League and across the Football League. As a player, Lee quite literally lived the dream. Not many players get to play for their boyhood heroes, let alone help reignite an entire city. But that’s what Clark did, having played 46 league games as a 20-year-old in Newcastle’s record breaking 1992/93 season, which ended their four-year exile from the top flight.It was a golden period for Toon. In the 1995-96 season, when Kevin Keegan’s side, dubbed ‘The Entertainers’, famously finished second behind Manchester United.The likes of David Ginola, Les Ferdinand, Faustino Asprilla and Peter Beardsley lit up St. James’ Park on a regular basis and Clark was right there alongside them. He says the experience helped raise his game to another level.”Absolutely, every training session and game really, really mattered,” Clark tells Tribalfootball. “We could never rest on our laurels even in training, you knew you had someone, senior players, internationals. “And you knew that one, you wanted to get a place in the team. And two, you wanted to keep it, which was the hardest bit. You had to perform every single day in training. I think that’s the reason why most players during that period had there most successful time of their careers, really.”In 1997, Clark crossed the north-east divide for a brief two-year stint at Sunderland under Peter Reid and helped the Black Cats lift the First Division trophy in 1999. Fulham then paid £3m for Clark’s signature in the early days of the Mohamed Al Fayed revolution. Clark secured his status as a promotion specialist when he picked up another First Division title in 2001. Wearing the captain’s armband, Clark led the Cottagers to their then-highest Premier League finish in 2003/04. Speaking about his six-years in west London, Clark says: “I love the club. The people there, the way me and my family got treated. “The six years I had there as a player were magnificent. We had a great time and I love going back. And it’s quite ironic that it’s Newcastle vs Fulham at St. James’ on Saturday. I’ll be at the game and it will be pulling on the heartstrings really because I want neither of them to be involved [in the relegation battle].”And also another club close to me where my managerial career started, Huddersfield, they’re down in the mix as well. So it’s like I don’t want any one of these three to go down, but unfortunately I think that’s the way its going to be.”There was no break from football for Clark, who immediately joined United’s coaching staff after retirement in 2006. Two years later, he would take up the manager’s position at Huddersfield, spending four successful years in Yorkshire before joining Birmingham City in 2012.Stints at Bury, Blackpool and Kilmarnock have followed and at just 46 years of age, Clark still has plenty left to give to the game.”You learn from the ups and you learn from the downs. I’m a much improved manager than I ever was from the start. And I’m wanting to get back in. I love it. I love being on the graft. I love coaching players and trying to improve them. “I’m absolutely wanting to get back in the game but you know everything has to be right for me and also its not just the U.K, I’d quite enjoy and it would be a good test to work abroad.” TagsTransfersOpinionAbout the authorAndrew Maclean FollowShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Excluded from main squad; Pant, Rayudu named India’s standbys for World Cup

first_imgNew Delhi: Young wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant and veteran batsman Ambati Rayudu were on Wednesday named among the standbys for India’s World Cup squad, reigniting their dashed hopes of making the trip to the UK in case an injury setback hits the side. Speedster Navdeep Saini also found a place in the list of three back-ups for the mega-event starting on May 30. Pant and Rayudu’s exclusion from the squad of 15 had created quite a stir on Monday. While Sunil Gavaskar called Pant’s omission surprising, the snub to Rayudu was questioned by Gautam Gambhir. With the ICC doing away with the practice of letting countries announce a probables’ list before the final squad, the BCCI also has the option of including anyone apart from these three but it is unlikely to happen. “Just like ICC Champions Trophy, we have three standbys. Rishabh Pant and Ambati Rayudu are the first and second standbys while Saini is the bowler in the list. So if anyone gets injured, as per requirement, one of the three will be going,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on Wednesday. Rayudu took to Twitter to take a dig at his omission from the squad of 15 on Tuesday. “Just Ordered a new set of 3d glasses to watch the world cup,” Rayudu wrote on his twitter handle Tuesday. This was after chairman of selectors MSK Prasad justified preferring Vijay Shankar over Rayudu, citing the former’s “three-dimensional qualities”. While Khaleel Ahmed, Avesh Khan and Deepak Chahar will be travelling with the team purely as net bowlers, they can also be drafted in if the management feels so. “Khaleel, Avesh and Deepak are not designated standbys. In case of bowlers, that possibility is there but when it comes purely to batsmen, it will be either Rishabh or Rayudu,” the official said.last_img read more

Kumaraswamy voices concern over vulnerability of EVMs

first_imgBengaluru: With most exit polls forecasting another term for Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP almost sweeping Karnataka in the Lok Sabha polls, chief minister H D Kumaraswamy Monday expressed concerns over the vulnerability of the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs). Hitting out at the pollsters, the chief minister in a series of tweets alleged that the “artificially engineered” or “manufactured” Modi wave is being used by the BJP to lure regional parties well in advance to fill any shortfall after the results on May 23. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroad “Entire Opposition political parties had expressed concern over credibility of EVMs under PM @narendramodi’s rule. Opposition parties even knocked the doors of the Supreme Court asking for a traditional ballot paper electionsto avoid defective EVMs that are vulnerable to fraud,” Kumaraswamy said. “World wide, even developed countries have opted for traditional polls through paper ballets. The exit poll surveys on May 19 only reiterated the serious concern of the Opposition parties on misuse of vulnerable EVMs for electoral gains by the ruling party,” he said in another tweet. Also Read – Firms staying closed 10 days a month due to recession, govt doing nothing: Priyanka Gandhi Stating that exit polls were being used to create an impression that “there is still a Modi wave” in the country, Kumaraswamy said, “This artificially engineered or manufactured Modi wave is being used by the BJP to lure regional parties well in advance to fill any shortfall after the results on May 23.” “The entire exit poll exercise was an effort to create false impression of a wave in favour of one particular leader and the party. As they say, it is just an exit poll, not exact poll,” he added. Most exit polls on Sunday predicted that the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party led National Democratic Alliance will comfortably cross the halfway mark of 272 seats in the Lok Sabha. Some even projected that the NDA will get more than 300 seats. Forecasting a big BJP win in Karnataka, the pollsters claimed that the saffron party was likely to win over 21 of the total 28 seats. In the 2014 general election, the BJP had won 17 seats while the Congress and the JD(S) had bagged 9 and 2 seats each respectively. However, in the bypolls held in November last year the BJP had lost the Ballari seat to the Congress. Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara too raised doubts over the EVMs, saying that the BJP had sponsored the exit polls as the ground reality was different. He also noted that the United Progressive Alliance will come to power at the Centre this time. Rajya Sabha member B K Hariprasad said the exit polls were the reflection of the wishes of news channels where Modi wave is prevalent. “Most of the exit polls are the reflection of the wishes of news channels. There is a Modi wave in the news channels but the actual result will be out when the (ballot) boxes are opened,” Hariprasad told reporters. “They have shown BJP losing 40 to 45 seats in Uttar Pradesh. In rest of the places, these channels tried to fill the void. Exit polls are not exact polls. We will get exact poll when the counting happens,” he added. However, Karnataka BJP president B S Yeddyurappa said people of the country as well as Karnataka have supported Modi and the exit polls giving 22 seats to the saffron party in the state was a proof of that. Stressing that many tall leaders of Congress-JD(S) will lose, he said, “Let’s see what will happen after May 23, fighting is on between Congress and JD(S) already, let’s see where it will reach.” The Congress and the Janata Dal (Secular) leaders questioning the EVMs shows their desperation, he added. Speculation is rife in the political circles that any adverse results for Congress-JD(S) alliance in the polls will have its implications on the longevity of the Kumaraswamy-led government in Karnataka.last_img read more

Ohio State field hockey tops California 63 on senior day

Credit: Robert Scarpinito / Copy ChiefThe Ohio State women’s field hockey team capped off an emotional afternoon with a 6-3 victory against California on Sunday, as the team honored the four seniors playing their final home game at Buckeye Varsity Field.Forward Peanut Johnson, forward/midfielder Annie VonderBrink, back Emma Royce and redshirt senior goalkeeper Sydney Stype were joined by friends and family for the introductions.With a sense of energy from the pregame ceremony, OSU began the game strong as the close-knit Buckeyes entered halftime with a 3-0 lead. OSU had not scored three goals in the first half since its season-opener on Aug. 28. OSU coach Anne Wilkinson credited improved ball movement for the first-half offense.“We were starting to use each other and make simple passes. We went through a string where we were carrying the ball way too long and trying to beat three players,” Wilkinson said.Three separate OSU players scored in the first half. Sophomore forward/midfielder Maddy Humphrey scored first and was followed by goals from Johnson and sophomore midfielder Morgan Kile.Johnson’s reign at Buckeye Varsity Field ended about as well as it possibly could’ve, as she led the Buckeyes with three goals and an assist. Her four points are the most by any Buckeye player this season. However, she preferred to focus on the team rather than her individual accomplishments.“I think it was more just a team game. It wasn’t a personal ‘I want to score.’ It was just like we want someone to score, we were setting each other up, and I was lucky enough to be set up really well,” Johnson said.Johnson’s offensive prowess was called on in the second half when California threatened a comeback. Down three with just over six minutes into the second half, the Golden Bears scored twice within one minute. Wilkinson, dismayed, called a timeout.“She called a timeout just so we could get our minds right. One of the girls on the team, Morgan Kile, was just like ‘they are not coming back in this,’” Johnson said.Wilkinson said the timeout was to allow her team to take a breath and refocus.“I basically just told them to just calm down,” Wilkinson said. “Don’t play like you’re losing.”The team responded quickly. Johnson scored her second goal three minutes after the timeout and followed with a third score six minutes later, giving OSU a 5-2 lead.OSU’s sixth and final goal came from freshman midfielder/back Courtney Daniels. The score, the first of her collegiate career, gave the Buckeyes a 6-3 lead and put the game out of reach with under two minutes to play. The Scarlet and Gray’s six goals were the most the team has scored this season.The lead also allowed Wilkinson the opportunity to sub in Stype at goalie for her first action of the season during her final home game. As the buzzer signaling the end of the game sounded, Stype’s teammates enthusiastically rushed her.“As excited as she was to get in there, she’s really very deserving. As a fifth-year senior, she’s been through thick and thin and has worked really hard,” Wilkinson said.Wilkinson said she was glad to send to send off the four seniors with a big win.“With all the seniors, what they’ve contributed to this program is fantastic. My captains Emma and Peanut, I can’t say enough about. They’ve been such strong leaders this year and I’m just really proud to have them as a part of our team,” Wilkinson said.Although OSU finished its home schedule, it still has games on the docket at Kent State on Tuesday before finishing the season at Michigan on Saturday. After that, OSU is set to play in the Big Ten Tournament in Indianapolis, which begins Nov. 5. read more

Ohio State looks to rebound against Kent State

OSU lost, 35-21.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorThe Ohio State football team is trying to avoid starting 0-2 at home for the first time since 1967.On paper, it doesn’t look like that will be a problem.The Kent State Golden Flashes roll into Columbus tagged with a 0-2 record, with those losses coming against Ohio University and the University of South Alabama, both at home.While focused on his team, OSU coach Urban Meyer said Wednesday he knows what it is like to be in Kent State’s shoes.“Those kids are going to be a hungry group coming in here because this is their chance to play in front of 110,000 people,” he said. “I have been in that locker room when we (Bowling Green) went down to Missouri and won that game. You are going to see a hungry group trying to get a win.”The third-year OSU coach held the same position at Bowling Green from 2001-02.Meyer added that although Kent State has yet to win a game, he expects the Golden Flashes to test the Buckeyes.“I see a very good MAC school — I have been there before when I was at Bowling Green,” Meyer said. “I see a quarterback who can make plays, that is our biggest concern on defense. I see guys that run around and hit you on defense.”The Kent State quarterback Colin Reardon has been the impact player for the Golden Flashes, averaging 244.5 total yards per game — a figure that leads the team.The Golden Flashes will likely lean heavily on their passing game as they rank 120th out of 124 teams in rushing offense, averaging just 47.5 yards per game on the ground.Despite the Golden Flashes’ lack of a run game, OSU senior defensive lineman Michael Bennett said his No. 1 goal remains stopping the Kent State rushing attack.“We are going to make sure we shut down the run early,” Bennett said. “You got to shut down at least one aspect of their offense because they have so many different plays they can run.”Another key for the Buckeye defense will be simply getting off the field, something it struggled to do last week, giving up nine of 17 third down conversions to the Virginia Tech offense.“If you win first down, it makes second and third down a lot more tricky for the offensive coordinator,” Bennett said. “This week, you see stuff you can work on and you work on it. We get our pass rush better, we get our coverage better, and everyone comes together.”Offensively, Meyer said the key to the Buckeyes’ success will be getting off to a faster start than they have to begin the season. OSU has trailed at the half in both of its first two games.“We had a pretty good reputation for a while there of coming out of the gates real fast, real hard and we haven’t done that yet,” Meyer said. “I did some research on that, it was brought to my attention a while back and we haven’t. So we got to go take the lead and play Ohio State-style football. We’re not going to secret handshake or (give out) T-shirts. Finish the game. You got to do it, and we haven’t done it.”OSU football under Meyer during his first two years in Columbus usually meant running the football effectively as the Buckeyes ranked fifth in the nation last year (308.6 yards per game) and 10th in 2012 (242.3 yards per game).Two games into the 2014 season, the Buckeyes rank 81st in the country in total rushing yards, averaging just 151 yards per game.Sophomore running back Ezekiel Elliot said the lack of a running game is because of the unusual style of defense that Virginia Tech ran against the Buckeyes last week, but added that OSU has been preparing against a similar defense to the Hokies’ in practice.“We have been practicing against that ‘bear no deep’ (defense) when you got eight guys in the box,” Elliot said. “We got a couple of answers for it.”The Buckeyes, who have lost three of their last four games dating back to the 2013-14 season, have only lost to a MAC team once, boasting a 29-1 record, the only loss coming against Akron, 12-6, in 1894.Redshirt-sophomore wide receiver Michael Thomas said that he, along with the rest of his teammates, are looking forward to redeeming the loss this week against Kent State.“It seems like it has been the longest week ever,” Thomas said. “We are just waiting to get back in the ‘Shoe and make Buckeye Nation proud.”The Buckeyes are scheduled to kickoff Saturday at noon against Kent State at Ohio Stadium. read more
