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.

EPL: Gunners gun down Fulham in opener


first_imgRelatedPosts Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Arsenal, Wolves want Michael Olise Arsenal’s debutants starred as they kicked off their Premier League season with a comfortable 3-0 victory over recently-promoted Fulham.Willian finished his first match since the move across London from Chelsea with three assists, while Gabriel headed home Arsenal’s second to start his own Gunners career in ideal fashion. Fulham’s return to the top-flight got off to a difficult start when Alexandre Lacazette capitalised on a loose ball in the eighth minute to give the Gunners an encouraging beginning to the new season.Gabriel’s header after half time strengthened Arsenal’s grip on the game and was quickly followed up by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s curled strike which secured all three points.Arsenal passion was in evidence before the kick off when Eddie Nketiah and Dani Ceballos clashed in the warm up, a late challenge led to the two squaring up and needing to be separated.When the game kicked off the pair took their seats at opposite ends of the substitutes’ bench.Fulham did not have to wait long for their first chance in the Premier League when Aboubakar Kamara almost capitalised on an Arsenal mistake at the back, but Bernd Leno was able to gather the ball. The recently-promoted side also had the first shot on target of the match, with Denis Odoi running down the right before taking a shot, but his effort was a relatively straightforward take for Leno.Moments later Arsenal scored their first goal of the season following a scramble in the Fulham box, Lacazette reacted quickest to tap the ball past Marek Rodak and open his account for the season.A ball over the top was not dealt with by the Fulham defence, Aubameyang crossed the ball in before Granit Xhaka scuffed a shot, Rodak made a save but the ball fell into the path of Lacazette.In the 26th minute, Willian came close to adding a goal on his Arsenal debut, his straight free-kick went over the wall, but hit the woodwork.Fulham started the second half sluggishly and were punished for it in the 48th minute when Gabriel rose above Michael Hector to meet a Willian corner to head home on his first match in an Arsenal shirt. Kamara had an opportunity after Tom Cairney’s free-kick was cleared to the 25-year-old, but his strike from the edge of the box skimmed wide of the goal.The home side were then caught almost immediately on the break and captain Aubameyang capitalised from a Willian crossfield ball before he weaved through the defence then curled the ball past Rodak to all but secure the three points for the Gunners just before the hour mark.Despite the late introduction of last season’s Championship golden boot winner Aleksandar Mitrovic from the bench, Fulham were unable to claim any consolation as the game finished 3-0.Tags: Aboubakar KamaraArsenalDani CeballosEddie NketiahFilhamGabrielPremier LeagueWillianlast_img read more

Caretaker Alan Curtis wants Swansea to go back to basics


first_img One win in 13 games has left Swansea in the bottom three of the Barclays Premier League ahead of West Brom’s Boxing Day visit to the Liberty Stadium. This dramatic slump cost Garry Monk his job two weeks ago and, while the search for a permanent manager goes on, Curtis has steadied the ship in the last two games with improved displays, if not results. “It’s only been one game and the way we played showed there was no nervousness or edge to it,” Curtis said. “The crowd responded and they have a huge part to play because any nerves can go from the stand to the players. “But we haven’t felt it and against West Ham the players played freely and expressed themselves. “There was no hint of any nervousness and now I’m working closer with these players I’m even more convinced that we can climb the table.” The bad news for Swansea, however, is that they are bottom of the Premier League form table over the last seven matches with two draws and five defeats. And Swansea fans have not witnessed a home victory since Manchester United were beaten at the Liberty Stadium at the end of August to take them into the top four. “Sooner or later we have to start winning games,” Curtis said. “Look at our ratio of wins to games and it’s no wonder we’re in the bottom three. “But the players are comfortable with our style and we do feel a win is around the corner and the results can come.” Swansea suffered an agonising 2-1 injury-time defeat at Manchester City before fighting out a goalless home draw with West Ham, and Curtis feels the upturn in performances is down to a squad which finished eighth last season going back to basics. “We’ve tried to strip it back a bit, we lost it for whatever reason and the identity that served us so well we fell away from,” Curtis said. “We have to go back to the basics of passing to another white shirt, move again and look for the next pass. “If that’s a simple game, that’s what we want. “We’ve had criticism of the way we’ve played but it’s small steps and getting back to a possession-based game. “We’ve done that in the last two games and, if we continue to go back to principles that have taken us to this level and allowed us to prosper, then I’m sure we can start winning games.” Swansea slipped into the relegation zone for the first time in nearly two years last weekend when Norwich moved out of the bottom three following their shock win at Manchester United. Curtis’ side failed to respond with victory against West Ham 24 hours later but the former Wales international insisted that had nothing to do with the pressure of being in the relegation places. Press Association Swansea have reverted to their passing principles to try and escape relegation trouble, says caretaker manager Alan Curtis.last_img read more
