The Marcus King Band Taps Warren Haynes For Allman Brothers Cover At Red Rocks [Video]

first_imgThe Marcus King Band made their Red Rocks debut on Saturday night, opening up for Gov’t Mule and Yonder Mountain String Band at the beloved Morrison, Colorado venue. It was the band’s first time playing the legendary stage together, though King himself joined Lettuce for Rage Rocks back in May. While still an extraordinarily young band, touring the country vigorously throughout the year, MKB’s performance at Red Rocks felt long-awaited. And boy, did they deliver!Fellow collaborator and musical mentor Warren Haynes joined Marcus King Band during their opening set, for a ripping version of the Allman Brothers Band‘s “Dreams.” Of course, the two have collaborated before, with Haynes producing and playing on The Marcus King Band’s self-titled 2016 album. The ABB theme continued through Gov’t Mule’s headlining set, when King emerged to close the first set with “Whipping Post,” then returned again for an encore with members of Yonder Mountain String Band for the Mule debut of “Melissa.” The collaborators, which included YMSB’s Dave Johnston, Adam Aijala, Allie Kral, and Jake Joliff, jammed straight into “Mountain Jam,” before bringing “Melissa” to a fantastic reprise. In addition to the closing Allman Brother tunes, Mule performed “Come And Go Blues and included a “Les Brers In A Minor” tease earlier in the set–totaling five Allman covers in Mule’s set. The Marcus King Band’s opening “Dreams” truly set the tone for a fantastic night of heartfelt music from all three bands.Watch Warren Haynes join The Marcus King Band for “Dreams” below, courtesy of Jeremiah Rogers:Watch Marcus King join Gov’t Mule for “Whipping Post,” courtesy of kellypearson1000:Watch Marcus King, Dave Johnston, Adam Aijala, Allie Kral, and Jake Joliff join Gov’t Mule for “Melissa”>”Mountain Jam”>”Melissa” below, courtesy of D Ragoose:See below for Paul Dumah Morgan’s depiction of MKB’s Red Rocks debut:[cover photo by Gary Sheer]last_img read more

Letters to the Editor for Sunday, Dec. 15

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionMayor should show city citizens respectGary McCarthy once said that being mayor of Schenectady is his dream job. Does that dream extend to the citizens? A mayor who is aware of the socio-economics of his city should know that the aftermath of a heavy snowstorm can present hardships to many of its residents.The mismanagement of last week’s storm certainly worsened many situations.Every day in our city, people walk, cycle, use walkers or wheelchairs out of necessity. Food and prescription medications can’t wait. Doctor appointments have to be kept. Rent needs to be paid on time. People need to get to work and school.All last week, roads had a dense, ice-covered snow-pack with ruts, bumps and pockets that are worse than potholes. Some still do. Such unsafe conditions made these things incredibly difficult for pedestrians and drivers alike. There is financial hardship in lost work and wages, damage to vehicles, and personal injuries.Is our mayor aware of how this all plays out, or is he oblivious to it?Mayor McCarthy likes to tout Smart-City technology, but he ignored the National Weather Service and UAlbany’s Mesonet technology. He blames the plow drivers for declining overtime, but should be asking himself why multiple drivers would do this during the holiday season?Every Schenectadian knows what it’s like to be disrespected by those who don’t live here. We also know what it’s like to be disrespected by our mayor. Mayor McCarthy, please fulfill your dream, and bring your citizens out of this nightmare.Lisa RussoSchenectadyForget blame; create a shoveling brigadeThe negative comments about inadequate snowplowing in the city of Schenectady are understandable; I drive a car and have barely avoided accidents on streets that look like ski slopes.And I’m also a pedestrian, unable to leap over the huge snowbanks that have made it difficult to cross Erie Boulevard and State Street before the walk light turns to “don’t walk.”But it’s not just the huge snowbanks. Sections of sidewalk along State Street have been badly neglected. The northside stretch between Erie Boulevard and Broadway is a hazard to all pedestrians, and especially to the disabled.On Dec. 5, I saw a blind gentleman with a white cane making his way along that icy stretch. Who would be responsible if such a pedestrian, or any pedestrian, were to fall and injure himself? Rather than assigning blame, how about forming a “snow-shovel brigade” of private citizens who will come out in force to clear the city sidewalks?Roger ShefferSchenectadyState needs to pass an aid-in-dying lawIn response to Wendell Neugebauer’s Dec. 6 letter (“Assisted suicide laws do more harm”), as a practicing physician I have come to accept the fact that every medical intervention and treatment has limitations.Even the most vigorous, compassionate treatments may end in a failure to cure or relieve suffering. A tiny, unfortunate minority of patients reaches this point. It’s for them, in their final six months of life, that we seek a dignified exit,  bringing an end to humiliating suffering.Death is non-negotiable. We all die. When a patient has an incurable, terminal disease, it’s the natural extension of our professional duties to continue easing suffering.Many persons prescribed the aid in dying medications never take them. Just having the prescription provides comfort.Gov. Andrew Cuomo deserves great credit for endorsing medical aid in dying, as an option for mentally capable, terminally ill adults.He sees this as a compassionate option for the sickest of the sick.Of note is a research article published in the New England Journal of Medicine, which concluded that there are no substantial cost savings for choosing medical aid in dying over other end-of-life treatments.Further, there is not a shred evidence that societies move from voluntary aid in dying to state-mandated euthanasia.The safeguards of these laws remain unchanged since Oregon passed the nation’s first one 25 years ago: only mentally capable, terminally ill adults, who can self-ingest the medication are eligible.I urge Gov. Cuomo and our legislators to pass this law in 2020.David Pratt, MD, MPHRexfordMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homeslast_img read more

Federal Prosecutors on Prince Andrew: “Hand Andy Over”

first_imgFederal prosecutors in New York want to question Prince Andrew under oath as they continue their criminal investigation into sex trafficking charges against late financier Jeffrey Epstein. The Prince, who was a long time friend of Epstein, has been accused by one woman of sexual abuse when she was 17-years old. The feds have made a formal request to the British government to interview Prince Andrew who says the allegations are untrue.Prince Andrew has not been forthcoming with the US prosecutors and refuses to speak with them. So now they are forcing his hand.He may have to go to a magistrate’s court in the UK to make a statement possibly not under oath.The 66-year-old Epstein died by suicide last summer while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.Prosecutors say Epstein preyed on dozens of underage girls in New York and Florida. Netflix has released a new documentary called “Filthy Rich” about Epstein’s exploits especially in South Florida.Also a new book has just been released, “Prince Andrew: Epstein and the Monarchy” by Nigel Cawthorne.last_img read more

Latest: Chelsea 4 Newcastle 0 – Blues heading for victory

first_imgPedro grabbed his second of the game as Chelsea continued to cruise towards their first home league win since Guus Hiddink’s return as manager.The Spaniard had played his part in Chelsea’s dominant first-half display, scoring the second goal as the Blues went in at the break 3-0 up.He then added a fourth on 58 minutes, as he beat a hapless Steven Taylor to Cesc Fabregas’ flighted long ball before beating Newcastle keeper Rob Elliot.Newcastle had begun the second half brightly, and Cesar Azpilicueta had to be alert to throw himself in front of a Jonjjo Shelvey shot, while Aleksandar Mitrovic fired narrowly wide.But the Magpies’ poor defending, exploited by Pedro, cost them – just as it had when they leaked three goals in 16 first-half minutes.Diego Costa, playing in a facemask to protect a broken nose, opened the scoring early on when he timed his run perfectly to guide Willian’s  ball into the far corner.Then Newcastle left-back Rolando Aarons played a casual pass on halfway, allowing Pedro the chance to run to the edge of the box before firing home.The home side’s dominance was underscored by their third goal, as Costa picked up Fabregas’ lofted pass before threading the ball into the path of Willian, who was left with a simple finish.The only concern for Chelsea was when captain John Terry limped off after 36 minutes, following a tangle with Mitrovic.Chelsea: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry (Baba 36), Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Hazard, Pedro; Costa (Traore 60).Subs: Begovic, Baba, Mikel, Loftus-Cheek, Kenedy, Remy.Newcastle United: Elliot; Janmaat, Taylor, Coloccini, Aarons; Tiote, Shelvey; Sissoko, Wijnaldum, Townsend; Mitrovic.Subs: Darlow, Lascelles, Saivet, Colback, Perez, Doumbia, Riviere.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Free financial help from iMali Matters

first_img9 September 2010Free, face-to-face, personal advice and assistance with anything financial – from debt issues to bank accounts, wills, taxes, car purchases and burial societies – is now available, with no strings attached, from a new venture called iMali Matters.A joint venture between the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Credit Ombud, FinMark Trust and African Bank, the Money Advice Association – trading as iMali Matters – aims to give South African consumers free, informed advice on money matters across the consumer spectrum.“Lack of education in financial matters and knowing where to go when things go wrong are just some of the issues that affect many South Africans,” iMali Matters states on its website.“With approximately 13-million unbanked or incorrectly banked South Africans, there is a great need to assist people in gaining knowledge to make the correct choices about their money.”Three pilot advice centres have recently opened – in Wynberg, Cape Town, in central Durban, and in Germiston.iMali Matters contacts, advice centresEach centre, according to The Star, is staffed by two expert counsellors “who will not only deal with individual cases, but [also] conduct free workshops and lectures on topics most needed in their areas”.Each centre will also be equipped to provide a phone-in service to complement the walk-in service.Imali Matters offers advice on specific needs, such as savings, signing contracts, taking insurance, inheritance, budgeting, financial products, getting the best deal, understanding account statements (including interest and charges), and understanding credit bureaus and reports.Members of the public can also visit iMali Matters for redress on issues such as defaults, legal action, over-indebtedness, emolument attachment orders, overcharging, defective products, harmful business practices and unlawful contracts.Visits will, “unless countered by the consumer, include a needs analysis of the consumer’s financial health … with specific and general guidance,” iMali Matters states on its website.The advice offered, Credit Ombud Manie van Schalkwyk told The Star, “will be unbiased, not based on any brand or institution, and will not result in a sale. We have our own brand – iMali Matters – and will not be linked to any commercial venture.”The pilot project, according to the Money Advice Association, will test the feasibility of offering money advice to low-income people in South Africa, working in urban areas to begin with. Funding for the pilot project is being provided by the Financial Education Fund and African Bank.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

BJP opposes M.P. government’s idol height advisory

first_imgAsking the Madhya Pradesh government to refrain from dabbling in matters of religion, BJP leaders have objected to an advisory issued by the district administration making it mandatory to declare with it idols more than three feet tall, ahead of the Durga Puja on October 6. The first such advisory in the State comes days after 11 youths drowned in a lake here as their boats capsized during the immersion of an 18-foot-tall Ganesh idol. “The accident was not caused because of the idol’s height. It was a result of the administration’s negligence,” said Vishvas Sarang, Narela (Bhopal) MLA. The government had no right to restrict an idol’s height or impose conditions on it, he said, “it should be left to the Hindu community.”Bhopal MP Pragya Thakur said it was a crime to play with sentiments of Hindus. “If the administration is trying to discourage immersion of tall idols, it should do the same for tazias.”Collector clarifies“We have not restricted the height but asked people to keep us informed in case they are keeping an idol more than three feet tall,” said Bhopal Collector Tarun Kumar Pithode. “Especially if the height goes beyond six feet, we need to be informed so that arrangements could be made accordingly at immersion sites.”BJP State media chief Lokendra Parashar said the administration should instead focus on ensuring safety during immersions. “They should not talk such things.”At least a week before the festival, organisers and puja committees must register idols more than three feet tall with either the Municipal Corporation or the police, says the advisory. Without it, they will not be allowed to take out processions or immerse idols. Mechanised immersionsMoreover, the use of boats for immersions will be prohibited, and only mechanised immersions of idols more than three feet tall, using a crane or other means, will be permitted, that too only during the hours fixed by the administration. And use of loudspeakers and idols made of Plaster of Paris (PoP) will be prohibited. Although the State government has no law regulating idol immersion, an informed source in the district administration said a proposal for it would be sent to the Chief Minister soon. Bengal ruleAt present, only West Bengal has rules regulating idol immersions. It prohibits idols more than 20 feet tall and makes it mandatory for puja committees to submit a declaration before the Municipal Corporation on the compliance with rules such as no use of PoP idols, synthetic colour or toxic materials, and height of the super structure below 40 feet. The State Pollution Control Board could penalise committees in case of violation.last_img read more
