Lettuce Throws Down A Supreme Night Of Funk In Denver

first_imgThe Brooklyn-born funk band, Lettuce, brought their Sounds Like A Party tour to the sold-out Fillmore Auditorium in Denver, CO last night and had the packed hall getting down to their smooth and funky grooves. Supported by fellow New Yorkers, TAUK, the night was one for the books.Notably, Adam Deitch, drummer extraordinaire was joined by Tyler Coomes, bassist Jesus Coomes’s brother, and Bobby Deitch, his father, on percussion, keeping the rhythm section a family affair that had it locked down throughout the night. Nigel Hall also joined the band, treating the crowd to his soulful and spirited vocals.By nine o’clock, a line more than a block long twisted down the street filled with people stoked to get in and get down. The night opened up with DJ sets from Maddy O’Neal and The Geek x Vrv, which got the crowd in the mood to rage proper. By the time TAUK took the stage, the crowd was visibly hyped and ready to get down.TAUK’s seven-song set had the dance floor moving. Their tease-heavy performance highlighted the band’s ability to stay super tight and in control at any tempo and while switching between styles, though staying true to a rock-heavy sound. Particularly, their guitarist, Matt Jalbert, showed off with super shreddy solos, and drummer Isaac Teel locked down the rhythm and kept the crowd hype. The four on stage transitioned seamlessly between ambient grooves and aggressive, and sometimes almost frenetic, improvisational jams that energized the crowd and got them ready to party for Lettuce.When Lettuce finally took the stage, the crowd’s stoke levels were on high. True to the name of the tour, Lettuce ensured that the Fillmore was a total party and proved why the ensemble has become one of the preeminent funk acts in the scene. The band seemed to be getting into the Halloween spirit, as they moved between spooky and darker sounding sections as well as spacier and atmospheric grooves that would transition back into the classic funk sound the band is known for.As is Lettuce’s style, each member of the band (save Eric Krasno, who is currently touring independently) flexed their talents during the show, showing off their virtuosic musical abilities and keeping the crowd hyped. As always, the Shady Horns were a sight to behold with Ryan Zoidis on sax and Benny Bloom on trumpet treating the crowd to delicious horn solos. Jesus Coomes was front and center and kept the crowd hyped by laying down funky bass lines that drove many of the songs and kept the crowd amped. Adam Smirnoff frequently soared over airier jams on guitar and treated the crowd to heater guitar solos that took the energy to the next level. On the keys, Neal Evans tore it up, emerging at points to show off with some virtuosic riffs that allowed him to shine. Adam Deitch slayed on the kit, per usual, and the sit-ins from Tyler Coomes and Bobby Deitch were welcome additions for the night.Standout moments of the night included a Tears for Fears cover, “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” which had the whole crowd stoked once they realized what song it was. “Phyllis” was another crowd pleaser that kicked off with a spacey intro and was carried by the melodic keys a la Neal Evans and Benny Bloom’s soaring trumpet parts. The night was appropriately closed out by “Sounds Like A Party,” where Nigel Hall amped up the crowd and left them wanting more.True to its name, Lettuce’s sold-out stop in Denver on their Sounds Like A Party tour was a total party. The tour, which will continue into November, is making its way East. Members of Lettuce will also be playing at the Brooklyn Comes Alive festival on October 22nd. Don’t miss out, and peep their website or their upcoming tour dates below to catch them at a city near you.You can see the band’s tour schedule below, and check out a full gallery courtesy of Rios.Photos.Upcoming Lettuce 2016 Shows:10/26 – Baltimore, MD – Ram’s Head Live10/27 – Charlottesville, VA – Jefferson Theater10/28 – Asheville, NC – The Orange Peel10/29 – Live Oak, FL – Suwanee Hulaween10/31 – Baton Rouge, LA – Varsity Theater11/2 – San Antonio, TX – Sam’s Burger Joint11/3 – Houston, TX – Warehouse Live11/4 – Dallas, TX – Gas Monkey11/5 – Austin, TX – Emo’s11/6 – Tulsa, OK – Cain’s Ballroom11/9 – Louisville, KY – Headliners Music Hall11/11 – New York, NY – PlayStation Theater11/12 – New York, NY – PlayStation Theater11/26 – San Francisco, CA – Bill Graham Civic Auditorium12/1 – Pantanal, Dominican Republic – Breathless and Now Onyx12/30 – Portland, ME – State Theatre12/31 – Boston, MA – House of Blues Load remaining imageslast_img read more

Sunbelt Field Day

first_imgThe Sunbelt Ag Expo in Moultrie, Georgia, is vital to the research coordinated by the University of Georgia’s various commodity teams.The 600-plus-acre Darrell Williams Research Farm, on the expo grounds, has an open door policy with UGA scientists, serving as a breeding ground for research that impacts farmers in Georgia and the Southeast. This research will be on display when the expo hosts its field day on Thursday, July 14.“The Sunbelt Ag Expo grounds are the most visible demonstration fields in the Southeast. So many people from across the region visit the expo and the annual field day, we can literally demonstrate our research and development work in front of hundreds of thousands of people,” said Dennis Hancock, UGA Cooperative Extension forage specialist. Hancock is working with Tim Grey, UGA weed scientist, on research involving different types of herbicides to ensure that the herbicides do not increase the susceptibility of bermudagrass to leaf spot disease.Hancock represents one of six different research programs on display at this year’s field day. Scientists representing cotton, peanut, weed, vegetable and forage research will speak to field day attendees and explain the statewide impact of their research. “Conducting research at the Sunbelt grounds is important because it’s a great way to showcase field research and demonstrations to growers and other interested parties at events like the field day and the Sunbelt Ag Expo in October,” said Colquitt County UGA Extension Coordinator Jeremy Kichler. “It’s a great opportunity for a county agent to conduct research in order to generate production information for Colquitt County producers.”Kichler’s projects are based on questions he receives from growers every year. Production questions pertaining to cotton topics — on-farm cotton variety trials, effects of plant growth regulators on different cotton varieties and cotton defoliation evaluations — grow the research program Kichler runs with UGA cotton agronomist Jared Whitaker. In addition to cotton, Kichler studies soybean and sugarcane aphid insecticides. He hosts a watermelon production system demonstration with assistance from UGA Extension vegetable horticulturist Tim Coolong.Colquitt County is the top vegetable-producing county in Georgia. Coolong is studying the pivot-irrigated watermelons on narrow row plastic versus drip-irrigated watermelons on raised bed plastic. He is also researching the impact of irrigation on watermelons in terms of productivity, total yields and length of time the plants hold up after picking. Georgia growers use both pivot and drip irrigation systems, so comparing the two seemed logical to Coolong.“We chose watermelons because they are so widely planted in Georgia, and we felt we wanted to have a presence at the field day in a county where vegetable production is a high priority,” Coolong said.UGA Extension weed agronomist Stanley Culpepper uses his allotted 22 acres on the expo grounds to develop an effective weed management program for 2,4-D-tolerant cotton, dicamba-tolerant cotton and standard cotton technologies. He is determining the different environmental factors that influence crop injury in herbicides. He is also working to reduce herbicide use by implementing integrated programs with cover crops like rye and clover.“Sunbelt is one of my more critical sites because it allows me to do large-acreage experiments that more closely relate to a grower’s world,” Culpepper said.Along with Culpepper, Glen Harris, a UGA Extension soils and fertility specialist and fellow member of UGA Tifton’s Cotton Team, is studying the effects of fertilizer treatments on different crops, specifically cotton, on the expo grounds. Sulfur-based fertilizer, foliar potassium and sidedress nitrogen fertilizer are all part of Harris’ research, which is replicated every year.“I treat the Sunbelt grounds as another experiment station where I can conduct good cotton work. I know the location and it’s very visible to a lot of people. I get some good, replicated research data,” Harris said. “I’m able to do detailed, randomized, replicated small-plot research.”Jared Whitaker considers the expo grounds extremely valuable in regard to cotton production. He develops plant growth regulator regimens for various cotton varieties and evaluates cotton variety performance. “Numerous research projects are conducted each year here to help the UGA Cotton Team answer real questions that producers have and address the timeliest, most important issues to help producers keep cotton profitable,” Whitaker said.According to the UGA Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development, cotton was grown on more than 1.3 million Georgia acres and netted $964.6 million in farm gate value in 2014.Peanuts are another commodity being studied at the expo grounds. UGA Extension peanut agronomist Scott Monfort is researching the response of newly available varieties to a new growth regulator, prohexadione calcium. The trial will produce data about varietal response to the growth regulator in relation to plant growth, yield and grade. Diseases will also be evaluated between the varieties.“We conduct research trials at the expo grounds to broaden our field day efforts, which involve showing growers some of our leading agronomic research, in the hopes of answering growth issues and increasing overall productivity,” Monfort said.According to the UGA Peanut Team’s “2016 Peanut Update,” Georgia peanut farmers planted 790,000 acres in 2015, up 32 percent from the previous year. The acreage yielded an average of 4,400 pounds per acre.last_img read more

Location is streets ahead

first_imgOne of the family’s favourite places to relax Mr Reece said the home’s entry was the photographic backdrop for many important family events.The new owner will also benefit from the couple’s fastidious nature. What started as a lick of external paint in February evolved into a six-month project that included a full internal paint, floor polishing and a kitchen upgrade. While they’ll be sorry to bid the home farewell, there’s one thing Mr Reece said the new owners can rely on — friendly neighbours. 15 Craig St, Wishart, is being auctioned on site by Kosma Comino from LJ Hooker at 10.30am today.Follow Kieran Clair on Twitter at @kieranclair or Facebook at Kieran Clair — journo Andrew and Tracy Reece are auctioning their home this weekend, but love the street so much they built just up the road. Photo: AAP image/John GassWhen Andrew Reece and his wife, Tracy, bought 15 Craig St, Wishart, more than a decade ago, the location convinced them to sign on the dotted line.Now it’s time for a change and they aren’t going to leave the street.“The best part of the house is the outdoor area that leads onto the park at the back — it’s very private,” Mr Reece said. “It runs straight down to the Bulimba Creek park area — it’s the reason we bought the property and hence why we’re only moving five doors away.”The five-bedroom, two-bathroom home on 774sq m has been the backdrop to the family’s formative years. Its expansive floor plan and outdoor areas have hosted several neighbourhood events.An upstairs retreat was a great escape for the family as well.“We had everything from Monopoly challenges up there, where a Monopoly game could go for a week, to the most amazing Lego Land you’ve ever seen,” Mr Reece said. “You could make a mess there and it wouldn’t affect the rest of the house.”There are high ceilings and ducted airconditioning, a media room, salt water swimming pool and gym zone.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home2 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor2 hours agoThe home combined a great high-end finish with a brilliant family locality.Mr Reece said the home continued to adapt as the family grew up.“As the kids got older, they had their end of the house and we had our end, and we’d sort of meet in the middle at the entertainment area,” he said.last_img read more

Owen to retire at end of season

first_imgFormer England striker Michael Owen has announced he will retire from football at the end of the season. The striker will probably be best remembered for his exploits with England, for whom he burst onto the international scene as an 18-year-old and scored his most famous goal against Argentina at the 1998 World Cup. He ended up with 40 goals from 89 caps, behind only Bobby Charlton, Gary Lineker and Jimmy Greaves on the all-time list. In the statement on his website, Owen continued: “Having progressed through the ranks at Liverpool to make my first-team debut at 17, before embarking upon spells at Real Madrid, Newcastle United, Manchester United and Stoke City, not to mention representing my country on 89 occasions, I now feel it is the right time to bring the curtain down on my career. “I have been very fortunate in that my career has taken me on a journey that, like many young players starting out, I could only have dreamt of. “None of this would have been possible without the tremendous support I have received from managers, coaches, fellow players, back-room staff, the supporters and my own personal sponsors. I would like to thank each and every one for the huge role they have played in helping me reach the top of my profession.” Owen went on to thank his family, ending with a message to his father Terry, a former professional footballer with Everton and Chester. He said: “We did it my old mate! From those freezing local parks to terrorising the best defenders in the world on the biggest stages of all. I couldn’t have done it without you.” The 33-year-old made his name with Liverpool and went on to play for Real Madrid, Newcastle and Manchester United before signing for Stoke at the start of this season. But Owen, who has been dogged by injury in the latter stages of his career, has found opportunities very difficult to come by at the Britannia Stadium and has made the decision to hang up his boots. The striker wrote on his personal website: “It is with an immense amount of pride that I am announcing my intention to retire from professional football at the end of this season.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

O’Shea excited by new-look Black Cats

first_img Press Association He told the club’s official website, www.safc.com: “The quality of players that the manager has brought in is pleasing. (Former Juventus midfielder Emanuele) Giaccherini has not been here long, but already you can see from his first touch he’s got that bit of class – it’s very pleasing on the eye. “His link-up play with the strikers looks good and if we can get him fully fit and get Jozy Altidore banging in goals, alongside Sess (Stephane Sessegnon), who’s looking fantastic, it’s going to be exciting. “We have got a lot more attacking options than we have had before – the new players, (Steven) Fletcher when he comes back, (Connor) Wickham and Ji (Dong-won), who’s come back from Germany looking a lot sharper. “There’s going to be a lot of competition for places, which can only be a good thing and should see us push our way up the table.” Di Canio and his staff have worked the players hard during pre-season, which included a 10-day training camp in Italy before their trip to the Far East, and while that may have come as a culture shock to some of the newcomers, O’Shea is confident they will reap the rewards once the season gets underway. He said: “The new players are getting on fantastically well. They all seem to be good lads and they have taken to the atmosphere amongst us. “Some of the training sessions have been a bit of an eye-opener for them in terms of the intensity that’s demanded so early on, but I think they realise they are going to benefit from it.” The 45-year-old Italian has drafted nine new faces to date into his squad and saw his new-look team make the final of the Barclays Asia Trophy in Hong Kong last week, where they lost narrowly to Manchester City. They will head for Denmark to complete their preparations for the new Barclays Premier League campaign next week, and Republic of Ireland defender O’Shea is excited about what lies ahead. center_img John O’Shea admits he cannot wait for the season to start after being hugely impressed by manager Paolo Di Canio’s summer signings.last_img read more

WTC without Indo-Pak series doesn’t make sense: Waqar Younis

first_imgLahore: Former Pakistan captain and fast bowling great Waqar Younis said that the International Cricket Council (ICC) should play a more proactive role in getting India and Pakistan to play a Test series under the ambit of the World Test Championship.”I know it is a difficult situation between Pakistan and India even at the government to government level but I think the ICC needed to play a more proactive role in this championship,” Waqar said in an interview to the YouTube channel Cricket Baaz.According to the rules of the championship, each team is scheduled to play only six of the eight teams and which enables two countries do not face each other in the nearly two-year-long competition. The championship started on August 1, 2019, and the final is scheduled to be played from June 10 to 14, 2021 at Lord’s.”The ICC should have intervened and done something because to me having a test championship without Pakistan and India Test matches make no sense,” said Waqar.The two countries have not played a bilateral Test series since 2007. Waqar said the fact that he made his Test debut against India is something he will never forget. “It’s always been like this that is why making my Test debut against India is something I don’t forget,” he said.
