Pink Talking Fish Plays ‘Dark Side,’ Welcomes Special Guests On Concert Cruises

first_imgFan favorite tribute act Pink Talking Fish has had a busy couple of weeks on the water, bringing their unique synthesis of Pink Floyd, Talking Heads, and Phish‘s material to four separate concert cruises around the northeast.On July 8th, the band played two separate two-set cruises aboard The Jewel on NYC’s East River. The first cruise saw the band tackle Pink Floyd’s iconic album Dark Side Of The Moon in its entirety. This marked the first time Pink Talking Fish has played a set of just one of the three bands it covers, though it also served as a subtle Phish reference, who once played the full album live themselves (11/2/98). The show featured Elise Testone on vocals for “The Great Gig In The Sky”, as well as several other songs during the second set. The second NYC cruise featured the Turkuaz horns section for a two-set dance party that raged into the early hours of the morning. This past Saturday, July 16th, Pink Talking Fish took to the waters of Lake Champlain in Vermont, and featured a sit-in from Seth Yacavone Band bassist Alex Budney on a super funky version of Talking Heads’ “Houses In Motion” from their 1980 album Remain In Light. Finally, the band hit the dirty waters of Boston, MA on Sunday Afternoon with support from Tom Hamilton’s American Babies. Hamilton also sat in with the band on extended versions of Talking Heads’ “Pull Up The Roots” (Speaking In Tongues) and Floyd’s “Young Lust” (The Wall). The special guest star of the cruise, however, was PTF bassist Eric Goulds’ 4 year old daughter, Zia Mei, who got on stage with a bring red guitar in hand and sang with the band on “Quinn The Eskimo”. Full Audio of both NYC Cruises courtesy of Keith Litzenberger can be found below:Video of PTF Bassist, Eric Gould’s, daughter joining the band for “Quinn The Eskimo” courtesy of Benny Tucker can be seen here. Video of Tom Hamilton sitting in with PTF for “Pull Up The Roots” >”Young Lust” courtesy of Benny Tucker can be seen here.After an action-packed couple of weeks on the water, Pink Talking Fish heads to San Francisco tomorrow, July 19th, for a Phish aftershow at MEZZANINE. CRUISE SETLISTS:July 8th, 2016 – Rocks Off Concert Cruises, New York, NY, 7pm Cruise:Set 1: (Dark Side Of The Moon) Speak To Me > Breathe > On The Run > Time > Great Gig In The Sky* > Money > Us And Them** > Any Colour You Like > Brain Damage > EclipseSet 2: Lengthwise***, Moma Dance > Wild Wild Life, Have A Cigar* > If I Could*, TakeMe To The River*, Dogs > Mike’s Song > This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)*, Fearless**** > Simple > Life During Wartime* > Weekapaug Groove*w/ Elise Testone on vocals; **w/ Waste tease; ***performed accapella while the boat was rocking particularly hard due to big waves; ****w/ Roggae and Prince Caspian teasesJuly 8th, 2016 – Rocks Off Concert Cruises, New York, NY, 11pm Cruise:Set 1: In The Flesh* > Bathtub Gin* > Burning Down The House, Run Like Hell, Gumbo, Nothing But Flowers, One Of These Days > Kung** > One Of These Days, Wolfman’s Brother > Crosseyed And PainlessSet 2: 2001*** > Another Brick In The Wall > Psycho Killer > Another Brick In The Wall > Tweezer > Houses In Motion**** > Young Lust > Suzy Greenberg >Girlfriend Is Better > Tweezer RepriseE1: Quinn The Eskimo > Character ZeroE2: Cities*No Horns; **”Kuaz” instead of Kung; ***w/ Manteca tease; ****w/ Stash teaseJuly 16th, 2016 – Lake Champlain Concert Cruise, Burlington, VTSet 1: Waves > Run Like Hell > Slippery People > Moma Dance > Slippery People, Have A Cigar > This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody), Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Divided Sky > Once In A Lifetime > Divided Sky > Somewhere Over The Rainbow > Divided SkySet 2: Nothing But Flowers* > My Friend My Friend, Dogs > Pull Up The Roots > Time, Carini > Houses In Motion**, Dogs > Character Zero*w/ Ass Handed tease; **w/ Alex Budney on bass, Fiyo On The Bayou teaseJuly 17th, 2016 – Rock On!

Michigan State celebrates on Carrier Dome floor after Elite Eight win over Louisville

first_img Published on March 29, 2015 at 7:20 pm Contact Jesse: [email protected] | @dougherty_jesse Facebook Twitter Google+ When Terry Rozier’s shot rimmed out and the clock ran out, Denzel Valentine and Bryn Forbes started running toward the Michigan State bench — their mouths wide open and their arms imitating airplane wings.The Spartans held a six-point lead and Rozier’s shot had no chance of swaying the final outcome. MSU head coach Tom Izzo stood in place while pandemonium ensued around him, soaking in his seventh Final Four bid.Forbes and Valentine dodged their teammates and coaches that poured onto the Carrier Dome floor, harnessing the same characteristic that’s guided seventh-seeded Michigan State through four rounds of the NCAA Tournament.Untouchability.“I had so much energy and happiness and everything was running through my head,” Forbes said. “And I just couldn’t stop. I had to keep moving and just live the moment out. No one could catch me.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIt took two halves and an overtime period, but the Spartans eventually edged fourth-seeded Louisville to win the East Regional on Sunday afternoon. Travis Trice — named the regional’s most outstanding player — led MSU with 17 points and iced the game with two free throws before Rozier’s miss pushed the Spartans to the pinnacle of college basketball.Almost as soon as the game ended, Michigan State players wore hats that that said “Regional Champs” and shirts that said “Cut Down The Net.” And while two ladders were placed under the rim for them to do so, the Cardinals plodded off the court through a sea of Spartan green.A year ago, fourth-seeded Michigan State fell to eventual champion Connecticut in the Elite Eight. The Huskies, like MSU, were a seven seed blazing through favored opponent after favored opponent. The Spartans are on an eerily similar run, already edging second-seeded Virginia in the Round of 32, third-seeded Oklahoma in the Sweet 16 and now the Cardinals in their latest upset.“Spartan nation showed up tonight,” Izzo yelled as MSU accepted the East Regional trophy on a stage near center court. “They didn’t make it easy, but we’re going to the Final Four.”From there, Izzo faded to the background and let his team enjoy the moment — players like Trice, Valentine and Branden Dawson, among other returnees, were finally able to shake last year’s Elite Eight loss.Former Spartans guard and NBA Hall of Famer Earvin “Magic” Johnson took questions in a crowd of TV cameras. Spartans adjusted their flat-brim hats and repeatedly hugged one another. The only fans left in the Dome wore green and chanted “Go White! … Go Green!” across the court while holding iPhone cameras in front of their faces.One by one, the Michigan State players walked up the ladder in front of the net to cut a piece off.Lourawls “Tum Tum” Nairn Jr., whose pesky on-ball defense helped the Spartans hold the Cardinals to just five made field goals after shooting 53 percent in the first half, slowly stepped on each rung before raising his piece and inciting a large cheer from the crowd.Valentine, who made big play after big play down the stretch, pumped his arms in the air to ask for more noise.Dawson, whose putback off a Forbes miss gave MSU a two-possession lead with 36 seconds left in overtime, had trouble cutting off a piece and looked back at his laughing teammates for guidance.After Trice cut off his sliver, a small piece of the net still dangled from the rim. The players looked around for Izzo, who was standing behind the ring of reporters on the 3-point arc and smiling at his team.“Go cut down the last of it, Tom,” a Michigan State athletics representative said.“No, I want the seniors and those guys to do it,” Izzo answered.But no one wanted anyone but Izzo to touch the last remnants of the Spartans win. His players waved him closer to the ladder. The crowd chanted “Izzo! Izzo! Izzo!”So he obliged, leaning on Trice before stepping up the ladder, snipping off the last bit of the net and raising it high above his head.And in a very disappointing year for basketball in Syracuse, one team was able to use the city as a springboard to greater things.

Sumner Newscow weekly poll: The Brownback executive order question

first_imgFollow us on Twitter. By Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Gov. Sam Brownback signed an executive order Tuesday rescinding a protection for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender state workers that was put into place by then-Gov. Kathleen Sebelius eight years ago.  Loading … What is your view on Brownback’s latest action. I’m in full agreement. It was useless bureaucracy. This is a really bad idea for so many reasons.

The public needs to be aware of the dire situation it has caused. Our schools have had to make immediate cuts, firstly being supplies. Our kids need to have essential supplies like copy paper, construction paper, glue and tape. Report Reply 0 replies · active 287 weeks ago Post a new comment Enter text right here!
