  • Dead & Company Releases Pro-Shot Video Of “Shakedown Street” From 2017 MSG Tour Opener [Watch]

    first_imgDead & Company continues to build momentum ahead of their 2019 summer tour by gradually sharing official audio and video footage from the band’s 2017 fall  and 2018 winter tours. So far, the band has released pro-shot videos of “Deep Elem Blues”, “If I Had The World to Give“, “Eyes Of The World“, “Iko Iko“, and “Greatest Story Ever Told“. Dead & Company’s latest release from their video vault rollout features the set-opening “Shakedown Street”, from the band’s 2017 tour opening show at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on November 12th, 2017.With a high-energy buzz floating throughout The World’s Most Famous Arena, Dead & Company opened their 2017 fall tour with a well-delivered take on “Shakedown Street”. Backed by Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, and Oteil Burbridge’s infectious rhythm section, Bob Weir took little time to jump into his vocal lead, with a nearly sold-out crowd at The Garden singing along with the original Grateful Dead member. The 12-minute rendition of “Shakedown Street” features some standout guitar work from John Mayer, as well as some experimental interplay between the rockstar lead guitarist and Weir. Later in the show, Dead & Company played “Greatest Story Ever Told” and “Beat It On Down The Line” for the first time in their post-Dead configuration.SiriusXM’s Gary Lambert also continues to provide thought-provoking liner notes to go with the release of every video and audio performance, as part of the band’s latest fan-friendly initiative. As he notes about the band’s latest video selection,Just the right song at just the right venue to open the first show of the 2017 Fall tour. The Grateful Dead introduced “Shakedown Street” live in August of 1978, just weeks after recording it for the album of the same name, which would be released that November. The song’s theme of finding a vibrant beating heart in even the most blighted urban neighborhood – helpful hint: you just gotta poke around – might apply to many a town, but it had a special resonance for audiences in New York in the late 70s, as the city was just starting to come back from the brink of total collapse. It never failed to elicit a huge response from the crowd at Madison Square Garden on the numerous occasions the Grateful Dead played it there, and that clearly still holds true for Dead and Company.Watch pro-shot video of Dead & Company’s set-opening take on “Shakedown Street” from MSG below:Dead & Company – “Shakedown Street” – 11/12/2017[Video: Dead & Company]Dead & Company fans should keep their eyes peeled on the band’s social media accounts, as more videos and audio recordings are expected to arrive in the upcoming weeks.Setlist: Dead & Company | Madison Square Garden | New York, NY | 11/12/2017Set One: Shakedown Street > Greatest Story Ever Told, Bertha, Cassidy, Beat It on Down the Line, They Love Each Other, Cumberland BluesSet Two: China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider, Ship of Fools, Lady with a Fan > Terrapin > Drums > Space > Standing on the Moon > The Other One > Casey JonesEncore One: Samson and DelilahEncore Two: Werewolves of London(First “Beat It on Down the Line”; First “Greatest Story Ever Told”)last_img read more

  • Watch Denzel Washington Talk Hanging Picking Up Tips From Original Raisin Star Sidney Poitier

    first_img Related Shows View Comments A Raisin in the Sun Hollywood superstar and Tony winner Denzel Washington is about to begin performances in the Broadway revival of Lorraine Hansberry’s all-American classic play A Raisin in the Sun, so stopped by The Tonight Show to talk about the “actors medium” that is theater. Washington is playing the role that Oscar winner Sidney Poitier originated on the Great White Way back in 1959, and revealed to Jimmy Fallon that he had been “hanging out at his [Poitier’s] house a little bit,” picking up some tips. The stage and screen star also had the audience in stitches as he described how it’s essential to “keep going” in theater no matter what. After hearing Washington’s anecdote of how he made a show go on one night, we have a feeling that any doorknobs featured in Raisin at the Barrymore Theatre will be triply checked. Take a look at what he had to say below. Show Closed This production ended its run on June 15, 2014last_img read more

  • Men’s swimming set to begin NCAA Championships

    first_imgAfter finishing third overall at the Pac-12 Championships at the beginning of the month in Federal Way, Wash., theNo. 13 men’s swimming and diving team now preps for the NCAA Championships, which begin on Wednesday in Indianapolis. USC enjoyed a strong showing at the conference championships, highlighted by senior Steven Stumph, who became the first-ever Trojan to win three consecutive 200y breaststroke titles. Sophomore Carsten Vissering also posted a school-record time of 51.45 seconds en route to earning the first 100y breaststroke championship of his career, and junior diver Dashiell Enos rounded out the Trojans’ Pac-12 champions, successfully defending his 3-meter springboard title.Beyond the title winners, Stumph and redshirt junior Dylan Carter were three-time finalists for the first time in their careers during USC’s trip to Federal Way, and Carter set a new school record in the 200y freestyle with a time of 1:31.98. Redshirt junior Santo Condorelli also made three finals — the second time he has done so as a Trojan.Riding this momentum, USC now sets its sights on the national stage, as the NCAA Championships run from Wednesday through Saturday of this week at the Indiana University Natatorium. Though the Trojans do not have any national champions on their roster, they have won at least one NCAA title in nine of the last 16 seasons, and as a whole, USC owns nine NCAA team titles — good for fourth all-time. Its 120 combined event titles (98 individual, 22 relay) is also good for fourth-most nationally.The Trojans’ last team championship may have come in 1977, but they have been knocking on the door in recent years, finishing fourth in 2013 and 2015. USC will also enjoy the return of two Olympians this season, as Carter and Condorelli sat out the previous campaign to train for the Rio Games with Trinidad and Tobago and Canada, respectively. The Trojans boast four top-10 seeds in the field, including Carter, who is seeded fourth in the 200y freestyle. Stumph is seeded sixth in the 200y breaststroke, and Vissering is the fourth seed in the 100y breast. Sophomore Patrick Mulcare is the Trojans’ highest seed overall as the third seed in the 200y backstroke. All five of USC’s relay teams are also seeded either ninth or 10th.The 800y freestyle relay kicks off proceedings at 3 p.m. on Wednesday. After that, from Thursday through Saturday, prelims start at 7 a.m. before finals at 3 p.m. Thursday will feature the 200y freestyle relay, 500y freestyle, 200y IM, 50y freestyle, 400y medley relay and 1-meter diving, and the events scheduled for Friday are the 400y IM, 100y butterfly, 200y freestyle, 100y breaststroke, 100y backstroke, 200y medley relay and 3-meter diving. The championships will wrap up on Saturday with the 1650y freestyle, 200y backstroke, 100y freestyle, 200y breaststroke, 200y butterfly, 400y freestyle relay and platform diving.last_img read more

  • Boyd puts Broncos on his back

    first_img Boyd broke through with a career-best 31 points and tied a Broncos’ record seven three- pointers, Cook added 22 points and the Broncos rebounded in a big way with a 99-76 win over Cal State Stanislaus at Kellogg Gym. The victory keeps Cal Poly within striking distance in the California Collegiate Athletic Association standings. POMONA — Greg Kamansky locked himself and his coaching staff in his office until 1 a.m. in search of answers after Cal Poly Pomona’s upset loss to Chico State on Friday. Jonathan Boyd and Dion Cook provided an easy solution Saturday. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita “It was the result of team basketball,” said Boyd, who shot 9-of-11 from the field, 7-of-9 from beyond the arc and hit all six of his foul shots. “I was just fortunate to get some open looks and knock them down. . . . I just go out and play. I don’t look for career numbers. I just look to play in the parameters of (Kamansky’s) offense and defense.” Both aspects, of course, require the team cohesiveness that the Broncos (8-5, 4-2) lacked in Friday’s 76-61 loss to Chico State. Former Montclair standout Larry Gordon turned in his first career double-double (13 points, 10 rebounds), Billy Hofman dealt 10 assists and Cal Poly (8-5, 4-2) shot 60.8 percent from the field and 75 percent from the foul line in winning for the fourth time in five games. “We’ve got a tough three games on the road, we needed this win,” said Kamansky, whose team plays at fellow defending conference co-champion Cal State San Bernardino. “We just have to focus on one game at a time.” center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
