Dead Floyd And DeadPhish Orchestra Rock Classics At The Aggie [Video]


first_imgThis past Friday night in Fort Collins, CO, fans packed Aggie Theatre to enjoy the music of the Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, and Phish. Two bands, Dead Floyd and DeadPhish Orchestra, brought the heat to the town affectionately known as “Fort Fun” with a non-stop show of classics from the three heavy-weight acts.Both Colorado-based groups brought plenty of jam to the table, with a little dash of some uptempo funk to a few of the number played during the evening (i.e. “Dead Floyd during “Another Brick in the Wall Pt. 2,” seen below). They also played around with each other’s setlists, as DeadPhish Orchestra began both “Dark Star” and “Slipknot,” with Dead Floyd finishing the songs during their own set.DPO setlist consisted of Pink Floyd’s “Goodbye Cruel World,” a much welcomed “Lizards,” and a “Harry Hood > Bertha > Harry Hood”, the latter of which witnessed a “Goodbye Cruel World” refrain. All in all, a very creative set from the band out of Boulder.Highlights from the Dead Floyd set were a beautiful “Althea”, and a really well-played “Take It Back > Scarlet Begonias > Dark Star > Slipknot!” The lasers that the group brought along were a nice touch for the eyes to behold as the group went deep into some Pink Floyd numbers. “Pigs (3 Different Ones) > Not Fade Away” brought the evening to a successful conclusion as the crowd waltzed their way out onto the streets of “Fort Fun.”Check out some videos from the night below.

Students run laps to help raise funds for a new playground


first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisTawas City, Mich. — The playground at Clara Bolen Elementary is 28 years old and slowly falling apart, so one mother put together a very unique way to help raise funds for a new playground.The fundraiser is called “Laps for Learning!” Children run laps and donors pledge a certain amount of money for each lap. On Thursday, hundreds of students put their best foot forward and helped raise funds and awareness for a new playground. Brittany Harrison introduced the idea, and the school ran with it.“The second, third, and fourth graders run 30 minutes, and the kindergartners and the first graders run fifteen minutes, and they looked for donations to sponsor them per lap or just a one-time donation,” said Harrison.the school hopes to raise over $8,000 from Thursday’s laps, a major step towards their goal of $50,000. Administration hopes to break ground for a new playground on June 15th.“I’ll quote a student when I went, and I said, “Let’s do our best!” and he goes, “Yeah, but it’s not about who wins, it’s about just having fun,” and I said “Yeah, you nailed it!” said Principal Sarah Danek.If you’d like to donate, you can contact Clara Bolen Elementary by giving them a call or sending an email.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Clara Bolen Elementary, Laps for Learning, Playground, tawas cityContinue ReadingPrevious High school students begin to plan their future with career fairNext Photo of the Day for Friday, April 19last_img read more
