Dave Matthews, Graham Nash And More Stand With Standing Rock At Benefit Show

first_imgLast night, as demonstrators continued to stand their ground in opposition to the Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL) on Standing Rock Indian Preservation, a group of musicians came together in Washington, D.C. to host a benefit concert to raise funds for the resistance effort. Billed as “Stand for Standing Rock,” the event at DAR Constitution Hall was hosted and headlined by Dave Matthews and featured performances by R&B artist Ledisi, Neko Case (The New Pornographers), Graham Nash, and frequent Matthews collaborator Tim Reynolds.In addition to the evening’s famous performers, Matthews invited many members of tribe to perform and speak, including 23-year-old Kendrick Eagle, who shared his experiences meeting President Obama on a few occasions. “He told us he had our backs as long as he’s in office. And now we need him more than ever, and that’s why I’m here.”After introducing the evening’s various sets of music and speaking on several occasions, Matthews and Reynolds finally took the stage for their headlining set. Easily a highlight of their performance, Matthews told a story about his experience visiting the protestors’ camp at Standing Rock: “The whole experience at the camp exploded my brain and I don’t know what to do about it” said the singer/guitarist. He then debuted a new song about that experience entitled “Song For Billijo”. You can watch fan-shot footage of the debut of “Song for Billijo” below, courtesy of YouTube user dmb4041:Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds also brought out Graham Nash during their set, playing a rendition of the classic song “Teach Your Children” together. Watch the performance below, courtesy of DMB4041.In such a divisive and tense political climate, it’s inspiring to see artist like Matthews and company standing for important causes like this one. #NoDAPLSetlists:Ledisi Setlist:“A Change Is Gonna Come” (by Sam Cooke)“A Bridge Over Troubled Water” (by Simon & Garfunkel)“Trouble in Mind” (by Richard M.

Iwobi’s Everton tackle Saints

first_imgRelatedPosts Fulham keen on Lookman loan deal EPL: Calvert-Lewin treble fires Everton past West Brom EPL: Everton set to compound West Brom woes Southampton vs. EvertonVenue: St. Mary’s StadiumKick off: 4PM Two teams in desperate need of a Premier League victory face off this afternoon when Southampton welcome fellow strugglers Everton to St Mary’s.Both sides sit in the bottom four of the table after 11 games, with the Saints in the relegation zone and Everton three points but only one place better off than their weekend hosts.The Canaries are perhaps the only one of the quartet that most fans would have expected to see in and around the danger zone at this stage of the campaign, although consecutive finishes of 17th and 16th for Southampton in the last two seasons suggested that they might be up against themselves too.Certainly, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side can have no complaints at sitting in the bottom three at the moment, having picked up only one point from their last six league outings – including the already-infamous 9-0 humiliation at home to Leicester City.There was a marked improvement last weekend as Southampton came within four minutes of taking points off champions Manchester City at the Etihad, but Saturday’s game is their first at home since the Leicester debacle and the St Mary’s crowd will be demanding another response.Southampton’s home stats do not exactly inspire confidence, though; they have picked up only one point in front of their own fans this season and could become only the second team in Premier League history to amass one point or fewer from their first six home games of a campaign, while they have already conceded 19 goals on home turf.It is unsurprising that Hasenhuttl’s future has come under scrutiny, then, and should they fall to a fourth successive home league defeat – a fate which has never befallen them at St Mary’s and last did so more than 21 years ago at The Dell – then the Austrian could find himself living on borrowed time.Marco Silva will sympathise with his opposite number having seen his own future called into question on numerous occasions already this season, although there is no doubt that the Toffees have underperformed so far following a significant summer outlay on transfers.Everton begin the weekend 17th in the standings having been tipped to push for the top six back in August, largely due to a run of five defeats and just one win from their last seven Premier League games.Last weekend’s stoppage-time equaliser against Tottenham Hotspur was overshadowed by the sickening injury suffered by Andre Gomes earlier in the match, but it could prove to be a valuable point and at least keeps them safe from dropping into the relegation zone this weekend – barring a six-goal Southampton win.Silva will also no doubt be stressing that a couple of positive results could completely change the outlook of their season – the Toffees may only be one place above the bottom three, but in terms of points they are actually closer to the top half than they are to Saturday’s opponents.Back-to-back wins could make a huge difference to the table, then, and Everton must be viewing this game and their first match after the international break – against 19th-placed Norwich – as a golden chance to get those, particularly with Leicester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal to come in succession after that – a devilishly difficult run-up to Christmas.The main issue for Silva to solve is Everton’s away form; they have lost their last four top-flight games on the road and have picked up just one point on their travels this term – that coming on the opening day of the season.Indeed, this contest pits the worst home record in the league against the joint-worst away record, so it could be that the head-to-head record between the two sides offers most clues about which way this one will go.In that respect, Southampton will feel confident. The Saints have won five of their last six Premier League home games against Everton, while 11 of their 12 victories over the Toffees in this competition have come in front of their own fans.Either way, one poor record is likely to end this weekend, with victory providing a potentially priceless lifeline for one manager and a potentially fatal nail in the coffin for the other.Southampton possible XI: McCarthy, Bednarek, Stephens, Vestergaard, Valery, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Hojbjerg, Cedric, Ings, Redmond.Everton possible XI: Pickford, Sidibe, Mina, Holgate, Digne, Schneiderlin, Davies, Walcott, Sigurdsson, Iwobi, Richarlison.Tags: EvertonRalph Hassenhuttllast_img read more
