Bob Weir And Wolf Bros Work “All Along The Watchtower” Inside “Dark Star” On First Night In NYC [Videos]

first_img“Dark Star” (Partial) Setlist: Bob Weir and Wolf Bros | The Beacon Theatre | New York, NY | 11/18/18Set One: Jack Straw, Maggie’s Farm > Me and My Uncle, Looks Like Rain, Gonesville, Loser > Josephine, Throwing StonesSet Two: Deep Elem Blues, Dark Star (v1) > All Along The Watchtower > Dark Star (v2) > Two Djinn > Wharf Rat, China Cat Sunflower > I Know You RiderEncore: Going Down The Road Feeling BadNotes: Weir switched from acoustic to electric during “Loser”, and again during “All Along The Watchtower”; “Wharf Rat” contained “Dark Star” teases; “Going Down The Road Feeling Bad” contained “China Cat” tease. “I Know You Rider” (Partial) On Sunday night, Bob Weir and Wolf Bros began the final stop on their inaugural tour with their first of two performances at the storied Beacon Theatre in New York, NY. While many of the shows on this tour have included special guests to augment the group’s core lineup of Bob Weir, drummer Jay Lane, and bassist Don Was, night one in Manhattan was all about the trio and the fantastic setlist they wove together throughout the night.The evening began with a spirited “Jack Straw” that saw Weir and Lane trade lead vocals. A well-played rendition of “Maggie’s Farm” followed, marking the first of two Bob Dylan covers on the night. Live Grateful Dead favorite “Me and My Uncle” came in next. As Weir stepped to the mic to begin the next tune, he seemed to have a new idea, opting to put down his electric guitar and pick up his newer acoustic for “Looks Like Rain”. Bobby shined on lead vocals on this excellent rendition of the Grateful Dead ballad, commanding the room with a seasoned swagger.Next up was Blue Mountain track “Gonesville”, a staple of Wolf Bros setlists throughout the tour. As the band readied themselves for the next song, Weir seemed to have some commentary on deck for the coming number. However, after taking a beat to collect his thoughts, he mused, “I’m trying to think of a story about this song. I guess I’m gonna have to let it tell itself.” The song in question was Jerry Garcia/Robert Hunter classic “Loser”, which saw Weir switch from acoustic back to electric mid-song. Finally, the band wrapped up the show’s first frame by rocking and rolling with “Josephine” and dancing and shaking their bones with “Throwing Stones”.Set two got moving with “Deep Elem Blues” before moving into “Dark Star” to the audible excitement of the sold-out crowd. After an extended instrumental intro, Weir led his Bros through the first verse of the Dead jam vehicle before taking a detour into the second Dylan cover of the night, a slinky, subtle “All Along The Watchtower”, which once again saw Weir switch from acoustic to electric mid-jam. From there, the band landed back in “Dark Star” for the song’s second verse before moving into RatDog‘s “Two Djinn”, which saw both Was and Lane take their time to shine.Next, the band moved into “Wharf Rat”, the hot Sunday crowd cheering and singing along. After an excellent reading of the song featuring some residual “Dark Star” licks from Weir, the trio moved into the final segment of the set: an emotionally potent “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider”. Finally, after a brief break, the band returned to the stage for a “Going Down The Road Feeling Bad” encore complete with added elements of “China Cat”.Bob Weir and Wolf Bros will wrap up their nationwide tour tonight with their second and final night at the Beacon, and considering it’s the final night of the tour—and it’s taking place in the Big Apple—you can likely expect some special guest Bros to make an appearance. Who do you think will join the party?Check out a selection of clips from Bob Weir and Wolf Bros’ first night at The Beacon Theatre below:“Throwing Stones” (Partial) “All Along The Watchtower” (Partial)last_img read more

Vermont Energy Partnership comments on Vermont Yankee reliability report

first_imgNorthstar Vermont Yankee,In conjunction with a report from the Public Oversight Panel conducting the comprehensive vertical audit and reliability assessment of the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Facility, Brad Ferland, President of the Vermont Energy Partnership issued the following statement. This is another thorough and exhaustive study that shows Vermont Yankee should be part of the state s energy future. The bottom line is the report states the plant is reliable and that this reliability can be maintained.The more than 6,000 hours of work involved in this study follows approximately 20,000 hours of inspections the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has undertaken with respect to the plant s license renewal application, as well as exhaustive, regular, annual safety inspections.Furthermore, numerous independent studies have found that Vermont Yankee is critical to ensuring Vermont has low-cost power and that the state continues to maintain one of the country s lowest carbon footprints on both an absolute and per capita basis.As it is critical for Vermont s economy to maintain the low cost, clean, reliable power that Vermont Yankee provides, the Vermont Legislature can send out a positive message that the state is open for business and that consumers will continue to have low-cost power by an affirmative vote that it is in the public interest of the state that the plant continue to operate.The Vermont Energy Partnership (www.vtep.org(link is external)) is a diverse group of more than 90 business, labor, and community leaders committed to finding clean, affordable and reliable electricity solutions to ensure Vermont stays a great place to live and work. Our mission is to educate policy makers, the media, businesses, and the general public about why electricity is imperative for prosperity, and about the optimal solutions to preserve and expand our electricity network.

Federal official says founding fathers intended for all lands to be sold

first_imgFederal official says founding fathers intended for all lands to be sold FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Washington Post ($):President Trump’s pick for managing federal lands doesn’t think the federal government should have any.This week, Interior Secretary David Bernhardt signed an order making Wyoming native William Perry Pendley the acting director of the Bureau of Land Management. Pendley, former president of the Mountain States Legal Foundation, was a senior official in President Ronald Reagan’s administration.The appointment comes as a critical time for the BLM, which manages more than a tenth of the nation’s land and oversees the federal government’s oil, gas and coal leasing program. Two weeks ago, Interior officials announced that the department would reassign 84 percent of the bureau’s D.C. staff out West by the end of next year. Only a few dozen employees, including Pendley, would remain in Washington.After more than 2 ½ years in office, Trump has yet to nominate a permanent director for the BLM. By placing Pendley in charge of the agency, Bernhardt has installed a longtime crusader for curtailing the federal government’s control of public lands.In the three decades since serving under Reagan, Pendley has sued the Interior Department on behalf of an oil and gas prospector, sought to undermine protections of endangered species such as the grizzly bear and pressed to radically reduce the size of federal lands to make way for development.“The Founding Fathers intended all lands owned by the federal government to be sold,” he wrote approvingly in a National Review magazine article in 2016. “Westerners know that only getting title to much of the land in the West will bring real change,” he said……“By fixing this pivotal deal in 1984 — and getting away with it — Mr. Pendley may be one of the most important faceless functionaries in the expansion of coal use in the United States,” said Tom Sanzillo, director of finance at the Institute for Energy Economics & Financial Analysis, in an email. He said the report showed “a much wider pattern of high ranking employees and administration officials cutting deals with the industry without regard for laws.”As a result, he said, “billions of tons of coal could come to market from the Powder River Basin for the next now 40 plus years at below market prices due to what was done at the time.”More: Trump’s pick for managing federal lands doesn’t believe the government should have anylast_img read more

Holiday promotions: A little extra help matters

first_imgIt is evident everywhere that it is holiday season.  With Christmas trees, lights, and poinsettias around every corner, shopping special advertisements, and peppermint infused beverage promotions there is no mistaking this time of year as one that carries high expectations.  For many people though, these expectations can carry stress. Sometimes the holiday season holds an extra sense of loss for those who have missing or distant loved ones or those who have had a particularly difficult year. The holidays can be a time of celebration and family or a reminder of goals unmet. It can also be a time of tension for many average Americans who have a gift list longer than their expenses stretch. Many credit unions offer some type of holiday promotion to remind members to utilize products and services.  Be extra creative this season and think about the pain points of your borrowers in your promotions. Skip-a-pay programs are a great promotion, but maybe your credit union could slightly reduce the fee during the holiday season? Perhaps you could increase your non-credit based loan limits by a $100 or so during December? Here are a few reasons to think deeply and more holistically about December loan promos. Members are borrowing: The average American expects to spend $992  on the holidays this year. Whether that sounds like a lot or a little to you, keep in mind all the boss’ gifts, teacher gifts, neighbor gifts, stocking stuffers, parties and holiday dinners that happen around this time of year. When combined with the recent headline that most Americans can’t come up with one thousand dollars to cover an emergency, something doesn’t add up. Borrowing is one of the big ways to make up the difference, and credit cards can carry high interest rates. Take note of needs and find ways to help bridge the gap. Then in January, promote your holiday savings account like crazy to help members be ahead of the game next year! Members are busy:  So many of us wait until the last few days or minutes or at least until Black Friday to really start holiday shopping. Once you start letting your members know you really are there to extend some extra help at the holidays they will remember. A holiday loan can be a big relationship building opportunity. Offer the right promo during December and your members will pick up the phone and ask you about it year after year. There is no reason to shop around for financing when they already know their credit union will take care of it!  Members believe you:  A credit union is a financial institution. It goes without saying for anyone reading this, but day in and day out we can overlook the fact that this carries weight with a lot of people. We know rules and regulation and finance. Our financial education programs are a tool that can educate members about improving their own financial position. If your member has their deposit and checking accounts with you, they have already trusted you with their core finances.   Don’t underestimate the credibility you have during the holiday season. Use this busy, hectic, exciting, stressful time of year to remind your members why you are different than any other bank, fintech, payday lender or financing company out there! 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Sarah Marshall Sarah Marshall is a consultant in the credit union industry, and can be reached for partnership and speaking opportunities through Your Credit Union Partner. Her background in community development includes … Web: https://yourcupartner.org Detailslast_img read more

Arsenal stunned by Brighton late show, Wolves close on top four

first_imgRaul Jimenez opened the scoring in Wolves’ 2-0 win at West HamAfter seeing Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United and Sheffield United fail to win on their return, Wolves were the first side to make a move on the top four.Substitute Adama Traore enlivened a sleepy encounter at the London Stadium with a brilliant run and cross to tee up Raul Jimenez to head home the opener 17 minutes from time.Pedro Neto then crashed home a spectacular second on the volley as Nuno Espirito Santo’s men moved level on points with Manchester United in fifth, just two points behind Chelsea.Leicester remain well on course for Champions League football themselves next season, but Brendan Rodgers’s men were denied a winning return by Craig Dawson’s late equaliser for Watford in a 1-1 draw at Vicarage Road.In a remarkable conclusion, England left-back Ben Chilwell’s superb 90th minute strike seemed to have handed the Foxes all three points.However, Dawson secured a vital point in Watford’s challenge to beat the drop with an acrobatic effort three minutes later to score his first goal for the club.A point edged third-placed Leicester eight clear of Wolves and United, while Watford move a point above the relegation zone.Bournemouth remain in the drop zone as they conceded twice in the first 23 minutes to lose 2-0 at home to Crystal Palace.Luka Milivojevic and Jordan Ayew scored for the Eagles, who move up to ninth.– Liverpool set to return –On Sunday, the stage is set for Liverpool to return for the first time since the top-flight hiatus when the title chasers make the short trip to city rivals Everton.Read Also: Video: Crazy Sevilla defending from Lionel Messi free kickJurgen Klopp’s side, 22 points clear of second-placed Manchester City, need two wins from their remaining nine games to end their 30-year wait to be crowned English champions.If the Reds beat Everton, they can wrap up the title with another victory against Palace at Anfield on Wednesday.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Adding insult to injury for Arsenal, deep into stoppage-time Aaron Connolly helped the ball on to Maupay and he kept his head for a fine finish. Maupay and Matteo Guendouzi then had to be separated at full-time as tempers flared. “Some of their players need to learn what is humility, especially one of them. He was talking all game, he was saying bad things,” said Maupay. “This is what happens when you talk too much on the pitch.” Arteta’s side are languishing in 10th place, eight points adrift of the top four, and may not even qualify for the Europa League. “It is unacceptable in the way we lost the game. The fact we missed so many chances and we did not compete for the second goal,” said the Arsenal boss. Brighton’s first win in 2020 moved them five points clear of the relegation zone. – Wolves make their move – Loading…center_img Neal Maupay played the villain twice over for Arsenal as the Frenchman netted a vital stoppage time winner for Brighton, while Wolves closed on the top four with a 2-0 win at West Ham on Saturday. Neal Maupay (far left) was the scourge of Arsenal in a 2-1 win for Brighton In the first full weekend of English Premier League matches since the coronavirus shutdown in March, Arsenal’s faint chances of a return to the Champions League next season faded further after blowing a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1. The Gunners’ cause wasn’t helped by an injury to goalkeeper Bernd Leno, whose screams echoed round the empty Amex Stadium after an awkward fall provoked by a slight push by Maupay. The German twisted his knee and pointed the finger angrily at Maupay as he was stretchered from the field. “I think he had a hyperextension of the knee and we have to assess the damage,” said Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta. Nicolas Pepe put the visitors ahead in the 68th minute with a superb strike. But Arsenal’s defensive frailties were exposed seven minutes later when Brighton defender Lewis Dunk stabbed home from close-range.last_img read more
