Leftover Salmon Announces New Album, ‘Something Higher’, For 2018

first_img[Cover Photo: 2017 ShowLove Media || All rights reserved || Photo by John-Ryan Lockman] Leftover Salmon has plans for a new album this year called, Something Higher, which is due out on May 4th, 2018 via LoS Records. Something Higher marks Leftover Salmon’s first studio release since 2014’s High Country, though the band released a new live album, 25, in 2016. Produced by the band’s long-time producer Steve Berlin (Los Lobos), the Colorado-based Americana jamgrass act recorded the record at the famous Wavelab Studio in Tucson, Arizona, and opted to record in analog.As noted in a press release, on Something Higher, the band “taps into everything from horn-blasting R&B to reverb-drenched desert noir, from the cosmic roots music sound they helped create to neo-New Orleans-meets-Appalachia liquefaction,” with the band’s synthesis of new influences being a product of “the interactions between the founding members’ roots and the newer band members, who bring refreshingly different influences and ideas to the songwriting process.”The band’s statement elaborated on the album’s creation:Over 10 days in Tucson, Leftover Salmon laid out the new music, each songwriter bringing a songwriting kernel and letting the rest of the band work out new improvisations to craft the final song. … In crafting the new music, founding members Vince Herman and Drew Emmitt provide a foundational focus and guiding spirit, while banjo player Andy Thorn keeps the band close to their original roots in backstage picking parties. The rhythm section–bassist Garrison, keyboardist Erik Deutsch, and drummer Alwyn Robinson–was a key focus point for Berlin, who drew out members’ backgrounds in jazz and hip-hop to zero in on the heart of Leftover Salmon: the groove.You can pre-order Leftover Salmon’s forthcoming Something Higher and get more information about the band and their upcoming tour dates on the group’s website here.last_img read more

Students meet with residents

first_imgMembers of the Notre Dame student government and the South Bend area met last week at the annual Student Government Community Summit to brainstorm ways to improve communication between the campus and surrounding community. Student body president Pat McCormick said the annual Summit gives student government the opportunity to engage with South Bend residents. “In recent years, student government has worked quite aggressively to deepen partnership between community members and students at Notre Dame,” he said. “There has been an effort to really solidify our relations with the community on the basis of mutuality.” McCormick said the summit involved student government representatives from Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s, Holy Cross and Ivy Tech, advocates for local businesses, officers from the South Bend Police Department and Notre Dame Security Police and other delegates from the South Bend community. Senior Erika Hansen, director of community relations, said engaging all these people in discussion provides a basis for incoming student government’s policies on community relations. “It is a high level opportunity for students and members of the community to more broadly deepen partnerships as well as introduce incoming administration to community leaders,” Hansen said. “It sparks ideas for how to get students more motivated and more involved to go downtown and patronize local stores and restaurants.” Student body president-elect and current vice president Brett Rocheleau said incoming student government representatives listened closely to community concerns. One way student government can be of assistance to the community is spreading the word regarding student safety off-campus, Rocheleau said. “The police force mentioned that there are a lot of students walking around at night alone,” he said. “They want to make sure that students know to be safe when they’re out in the neighborhood.” Rocheleau also said student government hopes to participate in more community-wide events next year, including a possible special celebration the weekend of the Notre Dame football game in Dublin. “There was an idea floating around at the community summit to throw an Irish celebration that weekend … [and to hold] a Taste of South Bend where it would be all about local South Bend eateries,” Rocheleau said. “They talked about mimicking Chicago during St. Patty’s Day and dying the river green.” Summit attendees also discussed marketing strategies for the annual Freshman Bus Tour, an event sponsored by the mayor’s office to introduce new students to what South Bend has to offer, McCormick said. In addition, Hansen said another topic discussed was how to integrate the new housing development opening on Eddy Street into the South Bend community in the future. Each year’s summit influences the work student government does during the year, McCormick said. “One of our platform ideas had been to try to integrate the arts community more fully in advocacy in student government,” McCormick said. “Last year’s summit was an early chance to … bring the art community together at Notre Dame to advance the arts on campus and beyond” McCormick said this year’s summit also allowed him to thank those in the South Bend community who were influential in helping student government. “We are grateful for the attendance and contributions made by community members and to come together to thank community leaders who played such an important role in efforts of the student government team this year,” he said. McCormick said Notre Dame students continue to become more involved with the South Bend community and that meetings like the summit are important. “Students increasingly think of themselves as members of a shared South Bend community,” he said. “There is no longer a bubble mentality.” Rocheleau said he hopes to continue this trend by pursuing the ideas put forth at this year’s Summit. “Our main goal is to try to deepen our roots in South Bend so that we’re more than just four-year visitors, rather that we’re part of the community,” he said.last_img read more

Disgraced ($348,413) If Christmas and New Years are a Broadway box office’s best friend, a January blizzard is its greatest villain. Almost every show on the Great White Way saw a dip in attendance for the week that Snowstorm Juno hit New York. The two shows to increase in capacity over the previous week were The Lion King (which, along with a bevy of others, played only seven performances) and The River, starring Hugh Jackman. The average ticket price did drop for the latter, but the Jez Butterworth drama had no problem filling its 696-seat (plus standing room) house. The play will take its final bow at the Circle in the Square Theatre on February 8, and we expect that no amount of snow (or slush) will keep audiences from one final chance to watch Jackman cook an entire fish dinner live on stage.

What to expect from a cybersecurity exam

Winterfest officials not sweating over upcoming warmer weather

first_imgBeer Tree will be present to provide drinks and the Colseville Fire Department will be cooking up hot dogs and burgers for people to enjoy. The event will have ice fishing, ice skating, games, and much more. Broome County Parks Winterfest starts at 12 p.m., with ice fishing beginning earlier, at Nathaniel Cole Park. As warmer weather approaches for the weekend, Woidt says she’s not worried about most of the activities being impacted. Meanwhile, she says her department is continuously working to make sure the event is safe with the rules and regulations it follows. She says they measure the thickness of the ice everyday to make sure it is safe for people to go fishing or ice skating. We’re not going to lose too much ice in a day like that,” said Woidt. “Maybe we will lose a little bit of the snow so sledding might be tough for people who do bring their own sleds, but other than that, everything is going to go as planned.” HARPURSVILLE (WBNG) — With temperatures rising this weekend, Broome County Parks and Recreation officials are making sure the Broome County Parks Winterfest is still a blast. Winterfest is taking place at Nathaniel Cole Park. Broome County Parks, Recreation, and Youth Services Director, Liz Woidt, says they’ve had similar events in the past, but this is the first year they will be having a big extravaganza.last_img read more

The Gold Coast was one of more than 100 cities across Australia where median house prices have tripled in the past two decades.“I doubt too many of those who purchased Gold Coast real estate 20 years ago would complain about the asset increasing 3.4 times,” he said.“It highlights why residential real estate has always been such a popular asset class.“An annual average capital growth rate over the last 20 years of 6.3 per cent plus a median rental yield of 4.3 per cent is a stellar result.”He said regional markets had generally performed better long term.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa11 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag2 days ago“Generally speaking, locations with a more affordable median house price have more upside potential for capital growth,” he said.“For that potential to be realised, the real skill is being able to identify the locations with positive leading economic indicators.” MORE NEWS: Ellen buys pop star’s epic Beverly Hills home Ray White Broadbeach principal Mitch Palmer backed Mr Pressley’s comments, explaining the high growth was possible because the Coast had such a low median house price 20 years ago.To expect it to triple again in another 20 years was “a little bit less likely”.“It’s easier when you’re coming off a low median,” Mr Palmer said.“Coming off a high median and expecting it to still triple is a considerable amount.“It would be logical to think it’s going to grow another $400,000 over 20 years though — property is a great long term investment.”He put the growth down to the city’s strong and growing economy.last_img read more

The IOC and 32 international sports federations held a teleconference where it was decided to respect the qualification process for the delayed Tokyo Olympics New dates for the Games in 2021 were confirmed last month, with the Olympic Opening Ceremony taking place on July 23 and the Paralympic Opening Ceremony set to be on August 24. Organisers had planned to reduce office space following the scheduled conclusion of the Games in September 2020, but now need more office space for longer – and may need to move some staff to a new location as a result. Tokyo 2020 confirmed to insidethegames that it may be unable to extend its lease on certain floors in Harumi Triton Square, so is looking for new office space to replace those areas. This is one of many logistical hurdles for organisers to overcome after the Olympics were postponed for the first time.Advertisementcenter_img Postponement came as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and the situation has worsened both inside and outside of Japan since Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe announced the decision on March 24. Abe has now called a state of emergency for Tokyo and six other prefectures, resulting in Tokyo 2020 staff now working from home where possible and the Olympic Flame being taken off public display. Some Olympic facilities may now be used to house coronavirus patients with mild symptoms. read also:Tokyo Olympics: FIFA raises age limit for men’s football to 24 The number of cases in Japan – now above 4,500 – is accelerating but is mild in comparison to many other nations, with the global death toll in excess of 82,000.

Picked On

first_imgDo you get the feeling that the referees are trying to get even with Vontaze Burfict of the Bengals?  In the last 2 weeks, I think he has had 3 personal fouls called on him even though the hits were perfectly legal according to football rules.  Not only do the announcers say that, but the rules makers have said it as well.I know Burfict has had stupid plays in the past, especially when the Bengals have been playing the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Burfict has been trying to clean up his image, but certain referees seem to have their own agenda whenever he is involved in a tackle.  Pro football is a violent sport, and the best defensive players are encouraged to make a defensive impact whenever possible.  It is hard for some players to differentiate between hard play and rule violations.last_img read more
