Dead & Company Separates ‘Sugar Magnolia’ For Smokin’ Alpine Finale [Full Audio/Video/Setlist]

first_imgDead & Company wrapped up a two-night run at the famed Alpine Valley Music Theatre in style last night, playing their hearts out for a great performance with countless Grateful Dead classics. Powered by three of the band’s core members, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann, Dead & Company are carrying the torch with a gusto. Perhaps it’s the new energy that John Mayer, Oteil Burbridge and Jeff Chimenti bring to the table, but there’s no denying that this band has some magic.Unlike the first night of the Alpine run, where Dead & Co debuted two new songs, the band focused on familiar tunes with a passion. Opening with “Samson & Delilah,” the first set was heated up by “Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo,” “Loose Lucy,” “Standing On The Moon,” “Crazy Fingers,” “Althea” and a sing-along of “Goin Down The Road Feelin’ Bad” that featured vocals from Burbridge.Set two had the biggest surprise of the night, as the band opened the set with “Sugar Magnolia” but segued into “Viola Lee Blues” before playing the “Sunshine Daydream” coda. The set raged on with a great “Scarlet > Fire” combination and wrapped into a psychedelic “Drums/Space” odyssey, before returning with “Wharf Rat.” Only after “Wharf Rat” would the band conclude their opening song, hitting the “Sunshine Daydream” section in stride.The encore brought two emotional Jerry Garcia tunes to light, as the band brought out acoustic guitars and played “Ripple.” With a little time left, the band broke out into one more song, a great “Touch Of Grey,” to end the show.Check out video highlights [from velvethammer2002 except where indicated], audio via WMWV Radio, and the full setlist below!Crazy FingersAltheaDrums/SpaceWharf Rat [via zoothorn99]RippleTouch Of Grey [via thisspaceisgettinghot] Edit this setlist | More Dead & Company setlistslast_img read more

‘Tricky Tuesday,’ ‘Be the Best Monday’ and more: what’s new @CuseWLAX

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 23, 2018 at 11:14 pm Contact Michael: [email protected] | @MikeJMcCleary Nicole Levy twirled her stick at the midfield of the Ensley Athletic Center. She cradled twice, tossed the ball left, then right before bouncing it off her knee, tossing twice more in the air and finishing with a kick. Those were the motions that set off a social media firestorm. One hundred and sixty-one likes and 43 retweets later, Nicole Levy’s first successful rendition of #TrickyTuesday previewed the mass changes SU has made to boost its social media presence, following other programs.“Syracuse lacrosse: We’re practicing, doing all this stuff for getting ready for games, preparing and we still have time to do Tricky Tuesday,” redshirt sophomore Mary Rahal said. “(Let) them know what we’re about.”Syracuse (9-8, 1-6 Atlantic coast) has been “running the social media game,” goalie Asa Goldstock said, all year. In a season filled with tight games and tough travel, players have unwound with the team’s social account, accepting the “fun” additions the team has made and with good result, players said.“Why not show girls that they want to come here?” Goldstock asked.The Orange have various theme days, each growing in popularity as the season goes along. The first, “Be the Best Monday,” typically gets posted in the late morning or early afternoon and depicts a player cutout positioned on a graphic that features a quote from the player about what it means to “Be the Best.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTricky Tuesday, which originated with the Levy video, features a player showing off stick tricks. The first two Orange players who participated in Tricky Tuesday carried their skills over to the games. Levy, three days after starring in SU’s first video, highlighted a strong offensive performance with a goal behind her head, which prompted the Orange utilize social media again in attempt to have the goal shown on ESPN’s SportsCenter #SCTop10. Players have expressed a lot of optimism for what the newly revamped social media can bring to the future of the team. Recruiting is one: Merola said she used to watch Twitter feeds of games in high school and it played a role in her decision to come to Syracuse. With social media being as “big” as it is today, Hawryschuk said, having a strong presence is a “good recruiting tool.” As for Goldstock, she expects nothing but the best from @CuseWLAX.“We should run the social media game,” Goldstock said. “Put a lot of things out on social media, get a lot of followers and bring some fans into the Dome.” Commentscenter_img The very next week, the Orange featured Molly Carter, who in the ensuing game against Oregon on Feb. 18 put a ball through her legs for a goal. The Orange’s good fortunes were a surprise to SU head coach Gary Gait, who was eager to put his new weapon to use.“I gotta get someone else on Tricky Tuesday,” Gait exclaimed.“Lila (Nazarian)’s a defender though,” he continued, disappointed the next week’s featured player most likely wouldn’t follow the trend the team had followed. “I’ll have to mention that to get more people to do Tricky Tuesday. Tricky Tuesday should give you a great chance for a highlight-reel goal.”Levy said she “didn’t even notice it” at first. Since then, the Orange has involved different players in the social media movement. After Levy, Carter and Nazarian, featured players on Tricky Tuesday have been Ella Simkins, Rahal, Cara Quimby, Morgan Alexander, Riley Donahue and team-leading scorer Emily Hawryschuk.The social media changes have excited not only the players participating, but family as well. Senior Neena Merola said her grandma “sees it all,” constantly sending Merola videos and tweets after games which the midfielder said is “really funny.”“Sometimes it’s me, sometimes it’s one of Nicole’s cool shots or something like that,” Merola said. “She loves it.”Gait said Tricky Tuesday is “just a fun thing to do where the kids have the opportunity to showcase what they do.” In the preseason, Goldstock spoke a lot of her tendency to do the “fun things that people want to see” in games.She showcased it on the field with her long clears and dodge moves in Syracuse’s win over Louisville on Sunday, but for a while she hadn’t been asked to participate in Tricky Tuesday. She laughed on March 6 when asked if she’s eager to show off what she has in her arsenal and said she’s just waiting until she gets “called to the podium.” On April 3, she was. The decision-making process behind Syracuse’s Trick Tuesday choice is random. Levy recalls being called upon by Gait after an early season practice before the first time that the Orange filmed the video.“Coach (Gait) just asked me, ‘Hey, you got any stick tricks?’ and I’m like ‘Yeah, I got a few.’”Players have praised the SU’s social media team, mentioning sports information director Susie Mehringer and Janelle Williams, a graduate assistant who is not listed on the team’s official roster. Williams has the title of SU women’s lacrosse social media manager listed on her LinkedIn profile.Tricky Tuesday and Be the Best Monday are just a start. Syracuse also creates GIFs, graphic images and videos for game previews, after goals and milestones. Among the team’s most popular tweets was a video showing a team celebration after a late win over Loyola on April 5, Gait’s birthday.last_img read more

He acknowledged it was affecting his throwing but that he still tried to “fight through” what he was feeling.”I just couldn’t move around like I wanted to,” he said. “Just throwing with a lot of arm.”Mitchell Trubisky explains how his hip injury affected his play. pic.twitter.com/fgv2j3IKaa— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) November 18, 2019Trubisky finished the game completing 24 of 43 passes for 190 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He also rushed once for 4 yards and was sacked once. Bears coach Matt Nagy said Sunday night that quarterback Mitchell Trubisky wasn’t healthy enough to finish the team’s 17-7 loss to the Rams in Los Angeles.Trubisky was trying to play through soreness in his right hip, Nagy told reporters in his postgame press conference. Nagy replaced Trubisky with Chase Daniel with 3:31 remaining in the fourth quarter. “It was all based off of he just wasn’t feeling right. His hip was hurting him,” Nagy said. “We knew it a few series earlier that something wasn’t right.” Per the Chicago Sun-Times, Trubisky said he alerted quarterbacks coach Dave Ragone earlier in the second half and that Ragone later informed Nagy. With Trubisky struggling to throw properly, Nagy said, he told Trubisky on the sideline that the quarterback needed to “be honest” about the injury.Matt Nagy talking to Mitchell Trubisky, shortly before benching him for backup QB Chase Daniel #CHIvsLAR pic.twitter.com/ykUi36hlJc— Kevin Boilard (@247KevinBoilard) November 18, 2019NFL PLAYOFF PICTURE: Bears in big trouble “Trying to play through that was what he was doing,” Nagy said, adding later that Trubisky did not want to leave the game.last_img read more

At-risk youths find inner PRIDE

first_imgPICO RIVERA – Towering over the 22 middle school children clamoring around him, two-time Super Bowl winning team member James Washington patiently signed each football eagerly shoved his way. The former Dallas Cowboys defensive back was at the sheriff’s Pico Rivera Station this weeknight to volunteer in the new gang prevention program nicknamed PRIDE – a “scared straight”-style approach that also focuses on presenting positive alternatives to kids. Begun five weeks ago by sheriff’s Pico Rivera Station officials and local clergy, the Pico Rivera Individual Development in Ethics Program (PRIDE) already has parents clamoring to enroll their children. The Rotary Club is offering full funding for the first 9-week session. The program targets kids between the ages of 12 and 15 who have “dabbled in drugs and graffiti” but are not actual gang members yet, said Sgt. Steve Sanchez, one of the program’s founders. “These are kids who are teetering on the edge of getting into the gang life,” said Sanchez, who started the program with no money. “We want to show them, not only the consequences of those choices, but the alternative. We want to show them a hopeful future.” Sanchez said the program’s structure focuses the first few weeks on the consequences of “poor choices” and the remaining weeks on the possibilities available from making “good choices.” One field trip took the kids to jail, where they were given orange jump suits, handcuffed and put into cells. Another outing introduced them to Skid Row. But by far, the visit to the county morgue was the most attention-grabbing field trip, youngsters said. Seeing dead bodies up close, with their bluish-gray tinge and their 10-cent toe tags, really “freaked out” 14-year-old Gabriel Palafox. Among others, the children saw a male gang member who had died of a gunshot wound to the head and a dead “crack baby” whose mother had died of a drug overdose, said Sanchez. “I felt something weird inside,” said Palafox, who earned his first `A’ and found a new interest in reading since starting PRIDE. “I saw the doctor pulling the heart out of a guy’s chest. I never seen anything like it. “You might not be able to see it really, but I want to study all of a sudden,” he added, shrugging. Thirteen-year-old Serina Roldan said the sight and smell of the dead definitely scared her from risking such a grisly end. “It taught me a lesson,” she said. “The man told us the toe tags cost 10 cents each. So you gotta think, is your life only worth 10 cents?” After signing the footballs, Washington spoke about his brushes with gang life growing up in Watts 30 years ago. Washington, 42, spoke skillfully to the eighth-grade audience, using examples and humor they understood, jokingly imitating what he knew the children were thinking about “yet another old cat” telling them he understood their lives. After the state took Washington away from his mother at age 4, he was raised by his grandmother. Eventually he took to running the streets with his five best “partners,” all of whom are either dead or in jail now. “Along the way they made choices,” Washington said. “I chose education. You guys are at a crossroads. You have a second chance to make better choices.” Washington said he plans to be “physically involved” in the program, not just offering an endorsement or money.
