Radiohead Closes Headlining Set At Outside Lands With ‘Karma Police’ [Watch]

first_imgThe last time Radiohead played Outside Lands was the festival’s inaugural year in 2008.The sound gave out twice on that Friday night in August, creating a brief, silent rock show for the small eternity it lingered. But Thom Yorke and the rest of the collective didn’t miss a beat, miming their way through the sonic void.Each audio miscue was promptly corrected, and the dense crowd overflowed with joy watching these titans of experimental alternative create the festival’s foothold in the music scene.Saturday night, in their return to the Lands End main stage at Golden Gate Park, silence fell again, but this time it wasn’t a malfunction.The muted reception from the crowd blanketed the tens of thousands watching into an authentic identity crisis, prompting the question of whether you came for a performance or for an experience.With EDM standout Zedd putting on a sensory-touching performance across the park, it was the perfect example of how much the live music culture has changed over the past eight years.“Burn the Witch” and the ambient ways of “Daydreaming,” the first two tracks on A Moon Shaped Pool, kicked off the set with a sort of anti-opener atmosphere that left the gathered speechless and Yorke skyrocketing to his musical pocket.The set was absolute bliss, with moody staples “Everything in its Right Place,” “Pyramid Song,” “Nude” blended around danceable numbers like “Lotus Flower” and “The Gloaming.”“Weird Fishes” and “Paranoid Android” provided a more palatable contrast, but there was certainly a purpose to the song selection.Radiohead’s music pushes boundaries and can make people feel uncomfortable. You’re unknowingly forced to address your true driving force for seeing live music, and many responded to that by turning around and seeking out the electronic dance party instead.There’s nothing wrong with that. Those that wanted to be there got what they wanted. Music festivals are special because of the collective experience they offer, but with Radiohead, the set was a little more selfish, focused more individual enjoyment.And this is why Outside Lands stands apart from many of its peers. It’s a perfect reminder of our history and future, and unites those two worlds with ease every single year.There was a shared experience at the end, though. Everyone came together and sang the final words of “Karma Police” with a tinge of truth attached, belting out, “For a minute, I lost myself.”What we found, was another masterful show from Radiohead and a special moment for its fans.Watch “Karma Police” below, courtesy of L Yap.You can see the full setlist below.Edit this setlist | More Radiohead setlistslast_img read more

Dave Grohl Judges & Jams At Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest

first_imgIn addition to judging the world class competition, Grohl took photos with barbecue celebrities like the Food Network’s Danielle “Diva Q” Barnett, who was on site as a member of Team Traeger Grills. He also jammed out with “This Bear Came To Party” and “Hillbilly Rich” singer Tim Montana, who joined Grohl for a “House of the Rising Sun” cover that saw found the former Nirvana drummer banging away on the cajón. Dave Grohl is the kind of guy who finds the time to perform with his daughters in the midst of a world tour—which is to say, Dave Grohl is the kind of guy who rarely takes a break. Consider this past weekend for example. Instead of using his brief time off the road to lounge around a pool or something, the Foo Fighters frontman made his way to the Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest, where he served as a judge and hung out with the competitors. Grohl will hit the road against next month when the Foo Fighters head to Europe for a three week outing. After that, the band will return to the United States for a lengthy stadium/arena tour, including a two-night stand at Chicago’s Wrigley Field. You can check out a full list of their upcoming tour dates here.A full list of winners from Memphis in May’s World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest can be found here.last_img read more

Beat writers predict Syracuse men’s basketball season record, MVP and X-Factor

first_img Published on November 4, 2018 at 8:14 pm Comments Last season, Syracuse received the final at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament and rattled off three wins in five days to make the Sweet 16. This season, the expectations are higher from the start. The Orange are a consensus top-25 team across all major rankings and return all five starters, along with Elijah Hughes being eligible to play after sitting out last season.Here’s what our beat writers think the Orange will accomplish this season.Charlie DiSturcoReady for takeoffRecord: 24-7MVP: Tyus BattleX-Factor: OffenseA year removed from a Sweet 16 appearance, Syracuse returns all five of its starters — including star Tyus Battle, who’s been working on his shot all offseason. Tack on the fact that transfer Elijah Hughes and freshmen Jalen Carey and Buddy Boeheim will work into the rotation in 2018, and this SU team is ready to take that next step. It’s very rare to have a team both this experienced and deep in college basketball. While Syracuse was a very solid defensive team last year, it struggled offensively. That’s where the new additions will play a role. Hughes and Boeheim add another facet to the offense with their 3-ball — the Orange shot 31.8 percent from 3 as a whole — and Carey is a versatile point guard. There’s a lot to love about this Syracuse team, and if the SU offense can put it all together, they have the potential to make a lot of noise in the NCAA Tournament once again.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMatthew GutierrezFive-headed monsterRecord: 23-8MVP: Tyus BattleX-Factor: The BigsAll five starters back, quick guard off the bench, stellar 2-3 zone, finally some depth, blah, blah, blah. The last time SU was this hyped? Two years ago, and we all know how that season panned out. I look forward to seeing how Tyus Battle, Oshae Brissett and Frank Howard develop not so much in their ability to score — we saw them do that last season — but in how they engage their teammates. That’s the key, because we learned a year ago that three scorers aren’t enough to be consistent. Plus, can the bigs pose more of a threat in the paint? Can Syracuse generate more production off the pick-and-roll? Keep an eye there. Nonetheless, the Orange shouldn’t be overlooked with this much talent and depth. There’s a potential for a deep run come the Big Dance.Billy HeyenThe boys are backRecord: 25-6MVP: Tyus BattleX-Factor: Oshae BrissettFor a few spring months, the outlook of this season hung in the balance. Tyus Battle was involved in the NBA Draft process. But he came back. Battle should lead the Orange in scoring for the second-straight year, and Jim Boeheim expects increased depth to help SU play faster. But the difference between good and great will come down to Oshae Brissett. Does he settle in right around 15 points and nine rebounds a game, like last year? Or has he grown into a top-10 player in the ACC, someone who makes 35-plus percent of his 3-pointers and challenges to be an NBA lottery pick in June? Teams with one star — think Ben Simmons at LSU, or Markelle Fultz at Washington — rarely become memorable. Teams with two, like Carmelo Anthony and Hakim Warrick for the 2003 national champs, can be special. If Battle and Brissett both have grown, that’s exactly what this Syracuse team could be.center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Region 7 roads to be tolled – Patterson

first_imgRoads in the Cuyuni/Mazaruni region will soon be tolled following the completion of various road projects. This is according to Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson who said the strategy will aid in the maintenance and sustainability of the infrastructure.Public Infrastructure MinisterDavid Patterson“Soon we will be finished upgrading the roads. I would hope that we can work along with the region on this,” Minister Patterson is quoted as saying by the Department of Public Information. He made the comments upon conducting the inspection of the hinterland projects during his recent trip to the region. It was observed that work needs to be done on the Amaila Falls road, which is heavily traversed, especially by trucks from the gold company – Troy Resources.He noted that’s the tolls collected will go directly to the region for the proper maintenance and care of the roads since it will be generated from those in the region. Minister Patterson encouraged the town council to create a road plan and work along with his Ministry on the idea.Regional Chairman of Region Seven RDC, Gordon BradfordRegional Chairman of Region Seven, Gordon Bradford said the Council welcomes the idea of tolling the roads and believes it is vital for the upkeep of the roads. He explained that in previous years, the strategy was used in the region and aided in the preservation of several roads leading to Mahdia.Echoing his sentiments, Mayor of Bartica, Gifford Marshall, explained the town council has deliberated the issue of tolling the roads for some time. However, he believes the Ministry will have to be the implementing body of the strategy.Marshall said during the next regular statutory meeting, the council will craft a “road plan” to which it will seek the approval of the Regional Democratic Council before sharing with the Infrastructure Ministry.The Ministry has ongoing works on the roads from Mahdia to the Denham Bridge and Miles 78 on the Bartica-Potaro trail to Mile 96 (Cassandra Crossing).last_img read more
