Arcade Fire Announces New Tour Dates

first_imgArcade Fire will return to the road in support of their 2017 album, Everything Now. Dubbed “Everything Now Continues,” the newly-announced series of dates will bring the indie rock icons through much of the Midwest and Southeast, including stops at Birmingham, AL’s Sloss Festival and Louisville, KY’s Forecastle Festival.Last year’s Everything Now tour was an interesting outing for the Canadian-American group, who are known for their energetic live performances. Rather than performing on a traditional stage, the band set up boxing ring-style platforms in the middle of various stadiums, offering fans a 360 degree view of the action during their concerts. Those shows usually featured career-spanning setlists, with numerous tunes from the latest album as well as their four earlier LPs.Arcade Fire’s next run through the United States will kick off on July 7th in Clarkston, MI before wrapping up in Bristol, VA on July 20th. Tickets for the shows will go on sale Tuesday, March 20th, though pre-sale tickets are available now.In related news, Arcade Fire just unveiled a “double music video” for the Everything Now tracks “Put Your Money On Me” and “We Don’t Deserve Love”. Titled by Money + Love, the David Wilson-directed video stars the band and acclaimed Australian actress Toni Collette. Additionally, Arcade Fire is scheduled to perform on Saturday Night Live this coming weekend (March 17th).Arcade Fire – “Money + Love”Arcade Fire Tour North American DatesJuly 7 Clarkston, MI @ DTE Energy Music Theater July 8 Milwaukee, WS @ SummerfestJuly 10 Pittsburgh, PA @ Stage AE July 12 Raleigh, NC @ Red Hat Amphitheater July 14 Birmingham, AL @ Sloss FestivalJuly 15 Louisville, KY @ Forecastle FestivalJuly 18 Boston, MA @ Blue Hills Bank Pavilion July 19 Philadelphia, PA @ Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing July 20 Bristow, VA @ Jiffy Lube Livelast_img read more

No. 7 USC travels to take on Cal Baptist

first_imgAfter two big wins against the University of Hawai’i last week, the men’s volleyball team has a chance to extend its current winning streak to four games with a matchup tonight at Cal Baptist. The Trojans have struggled to find consistency in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation — they have not won four consecutive games all season — but can assert themselves as one of the top teams in the conference with a win.Makeup sets · Junior setter Micah Christenson started twice last week against the University of Hawai’i after missing USC’s previous two matches due to injury. The Honololu native recorded 81 assists in the two victories. – Tucker McWhirter | Daily TrojanLast Thursday, the Trojans (9-5, 8-5 MPSF) took down No. 11 Hawai’i (9-6, 7-5) in four sets by a score of 25-17, 15-25, 25-14, 25-22. The following Saturday the Trojans needed three sets to defeat the Rainbow Warriors by a score of 25-22, 25-20, 25-18. After beating UC San Diego on Feb. 14, the Trojans’ winning streak matches their longest of the season. The team also won their first three games of the year.“This is the first time we’ve swept a week since I think the beginning of the season,” senior libero Henry Cassiday said. “Every game is crucial in the MPSF, anyone can beat anyone on any given night so it’s just important to get wins.”Junior setter Micah Christenson suggested the key for the Trojans against Hawai’i was mental more than it was physical.“I think it was huge to be able to string together the focus that we had for two nights without any let up, because that’s where we’ve struggled in the past,” he said. “We did that for seven sets of volleyball and I’m very happy about that.”The win had an added sentimental meaning for Cassiday, Christenson and senior outside hitter Maddison McKibbin, who are all natives of Hawai’i.“It is particularly sweet because I grew up watching the University of Hawai’i,” Cassiday said. “I grew up idolizing those players and to come here and have an opportunity to play them is a really special deal.”Cal Baptist (3-10, 2-9) fell to USC in four sets at the Galen Center on Jan. 29 by a score of 25-13, 25-22, 21-25, 25-21. Cal Baptist is unranked in the most recent American Volleyball Coaches Association poll while USC rose from to No. 8 to No. 7 after their victories over Hawai’i.Christenson said the biggest things the team needed to work on heading into the matchup was passing and serving.“I think we can just clean up some little things,” Christenson said. “I think we can always improve our serving and passing. That’s becoming the determining factor of the men’s game.”Cassiday said the key to success would be to carry the mental preparation the Trojans brought into the Hawai’i doubleheader into the trip to Cal Baptist.“It’s always a tough place to play, heading out to Riverside,” Cassiday said. “It’s a smaller gym so we have to create our own energy. As long as we focus on our own deal, serving and passing, that’s the most important thing.”McKibbin, Cassiday and Christenson started both of the games this weekend along with freshman outside hitter Lucas Yoder, freshman middle blocker Andy Benesh, sophomore middle blocker Tommy Leonard and redshirt senior opposite Tanner Jansen.The team has used a wide variety of starting lineups this year, with Benesh, Cassiday Christenson, and Yoder almost always starting but a mix of young players and veterans rotating into the second outside hitter, second middle blocker and opposite position.Head coach Bill Ferguson said that he really likes the balance of that group of seven, but said that he wouldn’t declare the starters for Cal Baptist until after practice this week.“That’s the one great thing about this team,” Ferguson said. “We have so many guys that are so good and can deliver from so many spots and more importantly, they’ve all been team-first. They understand their roles and when it’s their time they’ll be ready — and when it’s not, they’ll be encouraging their teammates that are out on the floor. That’s the really neat thing about this team, is that they’re really together.”last_img read more
