In mid-July, The Peach Music Festival commenced, kicking off one of the most highly anticipated music festivals of the summer. To open the festival, fan-favorite rising-star artists like Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, The Marcus King Band, Turkuaz, and Twiddle were all on hand, welcoming fans across Thursday evening. Given the consistently high-caliber collaborations the festival hosts each year, it came as no surprise when various musicians joined forces, making for truly rare collaborations.However, one of the most buzzed-about sets of The Peach Music Festival this year was Pigeons Playing Ping Pong’s Thursday night show. As to be expected at festivals where numerous artists are on deck before and after their sets, the Baltimore-born funk-jam act took advantage of the musicians who were joining them on the Thursday lineup for The Peach. After electrifying takes on “Whoopie” and “Porcupine” to start the set, Pigeons invited out The Royal Horns—the young standout horn section for The Marcus King Band—for the group’s energized classic “F.U.”, with the horns’ presence hinting at another special guest who would join the band later in the evening.With the departure of The Royal Horns, the band moved through two additional fan-favorite numbers, “Havana” and “Julia”, easily enrapturing the crowd with their fun-loving and propulsive sound. However, one of the truly standout moments of the set was the band’s take on “Lightning”, which saw the group welcome Marcus King. Predictably, the performance was exactly as you’d expect, with Pigeons guitarist Jeremy Schon and the young guitar prodigy going off and exchanging fiery solos during the song’s jam portion.Continuing with the momentum built during Marcus King’s surprise sit-in, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong launched into a “Fade Fast” sandwich, using the tune to house two energetic and nostalgic tracks from The Jungle Book that the band debuted during their Disney-themed New Year’s Eve show in Covington. Jamming through “Bare Necessities” and “I Wanna Be Like You”, the band eventually jammed back into “Fade Fast” before closing out their performance at The Peach Music Festival in full with a rendition of “Fun in Funk”.Today, much to the delight of fans, The Peach Music Festival has released a pro-shot video of Marcus King’s sit-in with Pigeons Playing Ping Pong for the song, “Lightning”.

Greensburg, IN —Greensburg Community Schools administrators have updated the Graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020. After two rescheduled dates, the ceremony was pushed back to this Saturday, July 18 at 9 am. After Wednesday’s announcement from Governor Eric Holcomb, the school made the decision to close the ceremony to the students only, and show it virtually through several different avenues for family, staff, and others to watch. The Class of 2020 has 167 students, which makes it impossible to allow each to have even one guest and be under 250 people.Several parents and family members called in complaints about not being able to watch the event in-person and made suggestions that instead of hosting the event indoors, as it is historically in the gymnasium, but to host it at the GCHS Football Complex. The GCSC administration has been working with the local health department to coordinate the event outdoors. The graduating students are encouraged to wear a mask that is provided by the school and those in attendance are also encouraged to wear a mask. Also as seating is limited in the bleachers, it is suggested to bring a chair.
Press Association The club said he had a “small fracture”, but could not put an exact timescale on his recovery. It is understood that, depending on how quickly the injury heals, the 20-year-old could be out for anything from three to six weeks. Everton have confirmed that England midfielder Ross Barkley has a fractured toe. Barkley suffered the injury during the Toffees’ FA Cup third-round win over QPR last weekend, a match in which he also scored. He missed the 2-0 Barclays Premier League victory over Norwich at Goodison Park. England as well as Everton will be hoping the midfielder recovers as soon as possible. He has made a huge impression this season, having been given regular first-team opportunities by Martinez, with his exciting performances and eye for goal earning him three England caps so far. He is firmly in the reckoning for a place in Roy Hodgson’s summer World Cup squad. Should his recovery take longer than expected, he could miss England’s friendly with Denmark at Wembley on March 5.
