Umphrey’s McGee Opens Three-Night Run At Red Rocks [Photos]

first_imgUmphrey’s McGee played their first of three nights at the beloved Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado on Friday night. The Chicago rock band, notorious for having musical surprises up their sleeve, proved exactly what they’re here for — with an evening full of rarities, covers, and fancy sandwiches.The first set opened with “Goonville,” a song performed by Umphrey’s McGee only 16 total times since 2015. “Make It Right” also appeared in the first set, for the 31st time ever. For a band that tours so extensively, this first set made for an exciting start to the run – especially with the “Forty-Six & 2” Tool cover to close, performed for the ninth time since its debut in 2012.The second set brought the band back to their comfort zone with a “Nothing Too Fancy” jam sandwich, churning a “Divisions” that offered a “Bittersweet Symphony” tease and reappeared to close the encore. “Phil’s Farm” also made a reprise, to finish what was started during the first set, after a “Tribute to the Spinal Shaft.” The encore featured “Resolution” with a tease of The Beatles‘ “Norwegian Wood” that led into the closing “Divisions.”Photographer Josh Huver was on site to capture the first night’s magic, which you can enjoy in the full gallery below.Setlist: Umphrey’s McGee | Red Rocks Amphitheatre | Morrison, CO | 6/30/17I: Goonville > Prowler > Upward, Higgins > Make It Right, Phil’s Farm > The Triple Wide, Forty-Six & 2II: Nothing Too Fancy > Divisions[1] > Ringo > Believe the Lie, Tribute to the Spinal Shaft > Phil’s Farm > Nothing Too FancyE: Resolution[2] > Divisions[1] with Bittersweet Symphony (The Verve) teases[2] with Norwegian Wood (The Beatles) teaseSupport: Stick FigureUmphrey’s McGee | Red Rocks Amphitheatre | 6/30/17 | Photos by Josh Huver Load remaining imageslast_img read more

Phish Releases Pro-Shot Video Of Monstrous “Carini” From BGCC Night One

first_imgPhish just wrapped up a fantastic two-night stand at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Center, a venue that’s become a favorite for the band and fans alike in the 3.0 era. 2018 marks the fifth run Phish has played at the beloved venue, yet the first time they’ve played only two-nights, rather than their usual three-night run. On the first night of the run, which is considered by many fans to be the best night of the tour so far, the performance was undoubtedly highlighted by a roaring second-set “Carini”.After swinging through a “The Moma Dance” > “A Song I Heard The Ocean Sing” > “Mercury” to kick off the second set, Phish kept the heavy jams flowing as “Carini” approached, quickly moving into a fast-paced funk bounce, with Trey Anastasio providing splashy riffs behind an infectious Mike Gordon groove. Tuesday’s “Carini” had a unique flow, harnessing explosive tenacity from start to finish. The jam cruised into a feel-good segment out of the funk, with Anastasio taking full reins as his bandmates followed attentively, leading to a gargantuan Anastasio peak. There are moments when Phish starts sounding perfect—and Tuesday night’s “Carini” was A+, top-notch, perfect Phish. Read our full review of the show here.Now, you can watch pro-shot video of “Carini” below, courtesy of the Phish.Carini – 7/24/18 [Pro-Shot][Video: Phish]Trey, Mike, Fish, and Page will head to Los Angeles tomorrow night, Friday, July 27th, for two nights at The Forum.

Long Island Weather Forecast Includes Freeze Watch

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Long Island may soon see its first frost as temperatures are locally forecast to dip below freezing overnight at least one night this week, threatening crops and possibly ending the growing season.A freeze watch is in effect 10 p.m. Tuesday to 10 a.m. Wednesday, when temps are expected to drop to a low of 26 overnight across Nassau and Suffolk counties, as well as parts of New York City and New Jersey, according to the Upton-based National Weather Service meteorologists.A freeze watch means below freezing temperatures are possible. An NWS forecaster said a recent freeze warning on LI did cause some frost, but it was not widespread and didn’t last long.The watch comes as Veterans Day hit the 50s with a 50-percent chance of light rain overnight into Tuesday morning, when temps may reach a high of 45 before potentially dropping down below the freezing mark overnight.The forecast calls for sunny skies for the rest of the week, hitting a high of 42 Wednesday but dropping down to a low of 32 at night.Temps will remain in the 50s during the day and hover around the high 30s to mid 40s after sundown through the weekend.If the forecast proves accurate, the first frost will be right on schedule, where it usually comes after Nov. 10 on western LI and as early as mid to late October on parts of Suffolk’s South Shore and East End.last_img read more

Biden’s popular-vote lead grows to 5 million as counting continues.

first_imgMr. Biden, who shattered his old boss Barack Obama’s 2008 record for the most votes received in a presidential election (Mr. Obama had 69.5 million), has now also drawn the support of a larger slice of the population than Mr. Obama did that year. Mr. Biden has won the votes of 23.4 percent of the American population, compared to the 22.8 percent Mr. Obama won in 2008, when there were 25 million fewer Americans.Millions of votes remain to be counted, possibly as many as five million. But whatever the final tally is, Mr. Biden, who already has earned 279 electoral votes — nine more than the 270-vote threshold — will remain the winner of the election. With vote-counting continuing in parts of the country, President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s popular-vote margin over President Trump is widening substantially.As of late Wednesday morning, Mr. Biden, with nearly 77.4 million votes, led Mr. Trump, who had 72.3 million, by 5.1 million votes and 3.4 percentage points. That’s up from his lead on Friday of 4 million votes and 2.8 percentage points. (In 2016, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by 2.8 million but lost the election to Mr. Trump by 77 electoral votes.)- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

Virus-hit Philippine economy plunges into recession

first_imgThe outlook for the archipelago is bleak, with the number of coronavirus infections surging past 115,000 this week — a more than fivefold increase since early June when the economy-crippling restrictions were eased.  “Without doubt, the pandemic and its adverse effect on the economy are testing the economy like never before,” said acting Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Karl Chua. “But unlike past crises, the Philippines is now in a much stronger position to address the crisis.” As health workers struggle to cope with the influx of patients, more than 27 million people in Manila and four surrounding provinces on the main island of Luzon — which accounts for more than two-thirds of the country’s economic output– went back into a partial lockdown for two weeks on Tuesday to help ease the strain on hospitals. The Philippines plunged into recession after its biggest quarterly contraction on record, data showed Thursday, as the economy reels from coronavirus lockdowns that have wrecked businesses and thrown millions out of work.Gross domestic product shrank 16.5 percent on-year in the second quarter, the Philippine Statistics Authority said, when the country endured one of the world’s longest stay-at-home orders to slow the spread of the virus that has devastated economies globally.It followed a revised 0.7 percent contraction in the first three months of the year and marked the biggest reduction in economic activity since records began in 1981 during the Ferdinand Marcos dictatorship. It is the country’s first recession in three decades.  Topics :center_img But President Rodrigo Duterte, who was reluctant to tighten restrictions after millions lost their jobs in the first shutdown, has warned the country cannot afford to remain closed for much longer.”The problem is we don’t have money anymore. I cannot give food anymore and money to people,” Duterte said Sunday.The country’s economic woes have been exacerbated by a drop in remittances from the legion of Filipinos working abroad who typically send money to their families every month, which fuels consumer spending — the main driver of growth.Remittances dropped 6.4 percent in the first five months, compared with the same period last year, according to the central bank, as thousands of seafarers, cleaners and construction workers lost their jobs and returned home. Consumer spending in the second quarter plummeted 15.5 percent, the statistics agency said.  “It will be a rough road to recovery as trade-offs between economic recovery and health will remain a big challenge to both the private and public sectors,” said Emilio Neri, lead economist at Bank of the Philippine Islands.last_img read more

WGN

first_imgThe Chicago Cubs are ending a nearly 90-year commitment to WGN Radio at the end of this baseball season.  WGN, 720AM, started broadcasting Cubs games on April 14, 1925.  When asked why they were leaving WGN, the Cubs replied “WGN said they were losing money because of declining listeners attributed to the Cubs losing seasons.”  The real reason is always money even though WGN and the Cubs had a 10 million dollar contract.  The contract will expire at the end of this season and negotiations have gone nowhere.The Cubs games will move to 780AM which is WBBM.  Nothing has been settled yet on whether WGN-TV will still air the Cubs games.  This contract started in 1948.  It will really seem different to loyal Cub fans who have considered the Cubs and WGN one entity.  Since AM stations no longer have the powerful signal they once had, it really won’t make much difference in this area what station they will be on.  Loyal Cub fans around here haven’t been able to listen to radio broadcasts for several years.I started listening to the Cubs in the 50’s because they broadcast the day games and this allowed me (as a younger kid) to hear baseball during the day.  I still like the Cubs but follow them more on the computer now than anywhere else.last_img read more
