Steve Gunn Welcomes Tony Garnier During Sold-Out Homecoming Show At New York’s Bowery Ballroom [Photos]

first_imgFolk-rock guitarist Steve Gunn was back in New York City on Friday night with a sold-out show in front of his hometown fans at Bowery Ballroom. The show on Friday was just the second performance of his 2019 winter tour in promotion of his brand new studio album, The Unseen In Between. Gunn had played a trio of more-intimate shows at Brooklyn’s Union Pool back in the fall to work out some of his new material, and spent nearly the entire 11-song set on Friday continuing to explore and familiarize his fans with the songs from The Unseen In Between in wonderful fashion.“This is the third show playing these tunes, we’re working it out,” and honest Gunn told the sold-out venue in regards to some of the new songs which made up the majority of his set. Gunn has amassed an entire songbook of brilliant original material over the last decade, but spent much of Friday focusing on the new material. In typical Gunn fashion, the guitarist calmly arrived on the stage in a casual, blue-collar look to start the show with “Wildwood”, a song from his 2014 Way Out Weather LP. Next came “Vagabond“, one of the lively pre-release singles from The Unseen, followed by two other new tunes in “Chance” and “Lightning Field”. It took Gunn three songs into the set to finally step onto his overdrive pedal, much to the delight of his jam fans in the room on Friday.Related: Steve Gunn Shares Folky Covers Of The Misfits & Michael ChapmanGunn and his co-guitarist for the evening were locked in sync by the time they got to “Lightning Field”, weaving in and around one another with their picking-styled riff lines. Gunn gave fans in attendance a treat by welcoming longtime Bob Dylan bassist, Tony Garnier, to the stage to join him on stand-up bass beginning with “New Moon” and “Luciano”. The full band left the stage during “Stonehurst Cowboy“, and Gunn and Garnier spent the next few minutes playing a duet version of the semi-biographical song about Gunn’s late father.One of the key elements of Gunn’s style of performing and recording which players will surely appreciate, is his emphasis on putting tone over anything else. Gunn even kept his metal fingerpicks on while playing some of the softer tunes on acoustic guitar throughout the show in hopes of giving the timbre of his instruments a sharp and firm personality with each strum.The first real jam of the night came towards the end of his set during “New Familiar” and “Paranoid”, which featured Gunn turning those clean tones of his into a mesmerizing dust storm of distortion and fuzz. The show came to a fantastic end with “Morning Is Mended” and the fan-favorite folk ballad, “Way Out Weather”.Gunn’s winter tour continues on Saturday with a show at Union Transfer in Philadelphia. He’ll continue to tour in promotion of the new album throughout the winter and into the spring months. Fans can head over to his website for ticket and tour info.

Pickle Ball

first_imgA new racket sport is beginning to catch on all over the United States.  It is called Pickle Ball.  You can play it with either two or four players.  Most pickle ball players use solid wood paddles and a perforated ball.  The strategy of the game is to hit the ball over a net.  The court is similar to a double badminton court.  The original pickle game goes back to the 1960’s when Joel Pritchard and his friends wanted to play badminton but did not have a shuttlecock (or birdie).  The Bainbridge Island, Washington, friends decided to take a whiffle ball and knock it across the net.  This game is now called pickle ball.  I am not sure how this name came about.To score in this game you must hit the ball across the net, and it must bounce before the opposition can hit it back.  Just like in tennis, the ball must land inside the lines of the court.  You win the game when you can score 11 points and win by at least 2.  The nice part of this game is people do not have to move as much as they do in a typical game of tennis, so players can be as young as 4 or 5 or as old as they want to be.  It is a very popular senior citizen game!  The nearest league that I know of is in Brookville.last_img read more

Leicester City come from behind to subdue Burnley 4-2

first_imgLeicester came from behind to beat Burnley 4-2 in another high-scoring Premier League clash as Brendan Rodgers’ side start season with back-to-back victories. The last time Leicester produced back-to-back wins at the beginning of a Premier League season, they ended it as champions. Thanks to seven goals in their opening matches, the Foxes are back at the top of the tree again and while even the most optimistic Leicester fan would doubt their ability to repeat the fabulous story of 2015-16, this was just the start Brendan Rodgers’ team needed after their poor post-lockdown form cost them a place in the Champions League. It was a double celebration for Rodgers, who registered his 100th win as a Premier League manager. Harvey Barnes delivered an outstanding display, scoring the equaliser and terrifying Burnley throughout. Chris Wood gave the injury-hit visitors a 10th-minute lead but after Barnes levelled, an own-goal from Erik Pieters and James Justin’s strike put Leicester in charge just after an hour. Jimmy Dunne pulled one back for Burnley on his top-flight debut but Dennis Praet’s sumptuous strike 11 minutes time settled it once and for all. Leicester will need to defend better than they did here to keep out Arsenal in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday and Manchester City in the league next Sunday. Wood could have had a hat-trick for Burnley: as well as his goal, the forward hit the post and shot straight at Kasper Schmeichel from close range. Despite missing key players Ben Mee, James Tarkowski, Jack Cork and Ashley Barnes, Burnley took the lead the 10th minute. Dwight McNeil found Charlie Taylor on the left and when the cross reached Wood at the far post, he outmuscled Justin and slammed the ball beyond Schmeichel. Leicester were convinced the forward was guilty of handling but after a VAR check, the ball was deemed to have hit Wood high enough on his arm for the goal to be legal. The Foxes rolled with the punch and levelled 10 minutes later. Loading… Barnes swept a crossfield pass beyond the Burnley backline and into Jamie Vardy’s path. The forward found Timothy Castagne, who squared for Barnes to stroke the ball into the corner from 15 yards. Barnes then drew a fine save from Nick Pope with an angled effort tin the 33rd minute, and six minutes later Phil Bardsley produced a goal-saving challenge as Barnes tore towards the far post to meet Praet’s low cross. Sean Dyche’s men suffered another injury blow soon afterward when, following an earlier challenge from Justin, Robbie Brady was unable to continue and was replaced by Pieters. Pieters might have wished he had stayed on the bench. Five minutes into the second half, after Youri Tielemans had found Castagne on the right, Pieters moved over to block the cross only for the ball to hit his heel and fly past the helpless Nick Pope at the near post. Barnes continued to cause problems for Burnley and another charge into the box brought a corner, yet Leicester were lucky to stay ahead just before the hour mark when Wood shot weakly at Schmeichel after Jay Rodriguez teed him up 10 yards out. Moments later, Burnley paid the ultimate price. Praet burst away down the right and found Perez inside the box. The Spaniard rolled the ball to the far post where Justin tapped it in for his first Premier League goal. read also:Former Nigeria coach Oliseh raises alarm over Ndidi’s new role at Leicester City But Leicester switched off again at the back when McNeil swung over a free-kick and Dunne barged his way through the crowd to head it past Schmeichel. The home side quickly restored their two-goal, however, with another goal of high quality. Barnes escaped yet again on the left and squared the ball for Praet, who used Castagne’s run outside him as a decoy before lashing the ball beyond Pope at his near post from 20 yards. There was still time for Wood to hit the post with Schmeichel beaten but Leicester’s slick attacking football merited the victory.

Warde unbeaten half-century prop up Leewards

first_imgFLORENCE HALL, Jamaica, (CMC) – Terrance Warde struck an important unbeaten half-century to prop up Leeward Islands Hurricanes and frustrate Jamaica Scorpions on the opening day of their fifth round clash here Thursday.With his side tottering on 146 for seven, Warde carved out 53 to follow up opener Montcin Hodge’s 52, as the visitors closed on 215 for nine at the Trelawny Multi-Purpose Stadium.Crucially, number seven Warde put on 28 for the eighth wicket with Jamaican Damion Jacobs (10) and a further 28 for the ninth wicket with Nino Henry (15), to ensure Hurricanes fought back in the final session.All told, the right-hander struck six fours in an attritional 137-ball knock in 2-¾ hours at the crease.No such rearguard effort appeared necessary with Hurricanes well placed on 92 for two after lunch, with Hodge and left-hander Amir Jangoo (35) involved in a key 39-run, third wicket stand.Seamer Derval Green had earlier hit left-hander opener Kieran Powell in front for nine while fast bowler Nicholson Gordon had also gained an lbw verdict against Devon Thomas (16) after he put on 38 for the second wicket with Hodge.In need of a stand, Hodge and Jangoo saw Hurricanes to lunch on 70 for two and flourished afterwards before off-spinner Pete Salmon broke the stand, getting Hodge to play down the wrong line to a straight ball and trapping him lbw.The right-handed Hodge faced 119 deliveries and counted seven fours in 143 minutes.Jangoo, who counted four fours off 85 balls in nearly two hours, added 25 with captain Jahmar Hamilton (7) before left-arm spinner Patrick Harty sliced through the innings with four for 41, to put Scorpions in command.last_img read more
