It doesn’t seem that long ago that Matisyahu was a burgeoning name on the scene, making a career-altering appearance with jam icon Trey Anastasio at Bonnaroo back in 2005. Now, twelve years later, the reggae-rock artist has toured the world over, released multiple albums, and evolved both personally and artistically. The former Phish tour kid will be playing a special late-night performance at NYC’s The Cutting Room following Phish’s performance at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday, August 2nd as part of their Baker’s Dozen run.Phishin’ With Matisyahu: How LSD “Turned My Entire World Inside Out”Matisyahu just released his latest album, Undercurrent, on May 19th, and will be on tour in support of the album throughout the summer. The album was created and produced by Matis and fellow band members Stu Brooks (bass, keys, musical director), Time Keiper (drums), and Aaron Dugan (guitar) only. No outside producers, no post-production — to put it plainly, no compromises and no frills. What came out of these sessions is music in its purest form, with special guest spots from friends and longtime collaborators BigYuki and Joe Tomino adding some timely flourishes throughout the album.Before Undercurrent, in September, Matis released the single “Love Born” (listen above) and discussed the track and its deeper meaning in context to both the good and bad that each of us goes through. “‘Love Born’ is about accepting pain and learning to transform it. It’s the ability to look back at one’s history and bring close those moments of pain and confusion and work with them in the present to evolve with strength to one’s future,” explains Matisyahu. “Life has no cushion, music has no net. This approach requires trust, patience, and a leap of faith that each player will listen to, and absorb what is happening around them, and be able to transform it into a collective whole.”Tickets for Matisyahu’s late-night performance at The Cutting Room are currently on-sale and can be purchased here.

LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of February 21, 2020 If you don’t have minutes, you won’t be able to go to the Euro …I know that by playing I have the chance to go to the European Championship. It is the coach who has the decision about whether I play. I get along with Fernando Santos the time I was with Portugal, but we haven’t talked these months.What differences do you see between France, where you played, and the LaLiga of Spain?I’ve only played 20 minutes in LaLiga but from what I’ve seen it has more quality and intensity, the French is more physical. And there is more balance between the teams. There, the PSG is far above the others and here several can fight for some title.Curious: you almost don’t play in Spain and Ben Yedder turned to France and swells to score goals with Monaco. It’s even pichichi.Yes, Monaco is a good team. Ben Yedder is a great striker and plays every game, he is showing how much it is worth.And you, is it worth those 25 million that Sevilla paid?I don’t think about whether I’m worth 25 million. Another thing would be to play and not do well. But I have not had opportunities to prove my worth. The money that was paid does not depend on me, I can only do my job and help the team.What do you ask of this final stretch of the campaign?My desire is to play more, because going out to the field 15 minutes once and then being one month without doing it … It is difficult to have continuity and rhythm if you play so little.By the way, congratulations on your good Castilian.I speak every day and I learn. I like the language, the city, the country … and thus it is easier to learn. He left before the Cluj and a shot of his ended in goal of En Nesyri. Happy?I had not played for a long time and I felt very good in Cluj, with good minutes. We wanted to win but in the end it was a good draw, I’m glad I helped the team.Do you think your situation will change now?I want to think that I am important to the team. I have not had many more opportunities to prove it but for that I work every day. I feel better than at the beginning of the campaign and will continue fighting. I think that other times I did well and had no continuity. But I keep insisting, I know I have to be prepared for when my time comes.Lopetegui said it cost him to take the physical form. Is that so?It was the first month. After that I was physically well, but there are players with a lot of quality here and I know I have to be patient.
Homes in the Funday section of New Kru Town were inundated by water from the Atlantic Ocean last weekend, forcing residents to seek shelter with neighbors.Great swelling waves from the Atlantic Ocean pounded the community repeatedly, residents said, flooding homes in the community of mostly unemployed people who are unable to move and relocate from the area.“It began Saturday night and though we did not think it would have gotten worse, it did,” said a female resident who spoke to the Daily Observer.She added: “The water was ankle deep and it entered into our homes, into our bedrooms and everything we have is affected.”Some residents said they were packing and leaving the community since the situation occurs every year; and although the heavy rains have not yet come, they know it would be worse during the rainy season.“We don’t really have a particular plan that we are working with right now,” a resident said, “but we have got to do something otherwise we know the worst is yet to come.”Another woman who said she stood up throughout the night, noted, “Someone must come and help us because we are poor people and we are not able to go and live somewhere else.”She said the Borough Government of New Kru Town has not been able to provide leadership whenever they are affected by calamities such as floods and fire, and did not think it is able to provide any help.“We want the government to help us because us we are also citizens but we are not sure since the government never helped in the past that may not do it now,” she said.An official of the Borough of New Kru Town told the Daily Observer that the administration does not have the kind of empowerment to provide assistance in fire and water disasters. “It’s unfortunate but due to the country we find ourselves in,” said the man, who did not want to be identified, because he was not authorized to speak on behalf of the Borough, “they have a choice to remain and suffer more during the raining season or move to other neighborhood if they are able.”Among the homes that were affected was the Faith in Christ Church School System that caters to hundreds of children in the community and beyond.Constant erosion has been blamed on climatic changes that are responsible for the loss of large land mass in New Kru Town.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
