Tasty String Cheese Incident Performance From 1997 Surfaces On Archive [Listen]

first_imgWe love our String Cheese, that’s for sure. For 20+ years, The String Cheese Incident has continued to break down sonic boundaries, incorporating just about every style of music into their repertoire. From sets collaborating with The Doobie Brothers, Skrillex, Ms. Lauryn Hill – three names rarely uttered in the same sentence – to thoughtful original music, the future is big and bright for Cheese.Recently, we noticed that a new classic SCI concert made its way onto the Archive. Taken from a show in Idaho in 1997, the newly posted audio sees Cheese getting into some of their staples, including “Black Clouds,” “100 Year Flood,” “Johnny Cash,” “Round The Wheel” and more! There are also covers of The Stanley Brothers’ “How Mountain Girls Can Love,” Allman Brothers Band’s “Ramblin Man” and so many great songs. The bluegrass influences are in full force for this Cheesy performance.Listen to the whole show below, courtesy of John L:Setlist: The String Cheese Incident at The Roosevelt, Ketchum, ID – 12/15/1997Set 1: Chili Dawg/How Mountain Girls Can Love, Pent Up House, Good Times Around The Bend, The Road Home, Moonflower, Got What He Wanted/Black CloudsSet 2: John Hardy, 100 Year Flood > Ramblin’ Man, California Rain, When Will I/Blue Bossa, Round The Wheel/Johnny CashEnc: Elvis’ Wild Ridelast_img read more

No mass gatherings casts doubts over Irish sporting events returning before September

first_img Betway strengthens racecourse presence with Cork sponsorship April 18, 2019 Share Betway backs Galway Festival with Super Saturday sponsorship July 17, 2018 Share 21Bet pays out on Wolves winning the league title January 29, 2018 Related Articles StumbleUpon Submit Major sporting events across Ireland are to face further setbacks after the Irish government confirmed that all mass gatherings of over 5,000 people will be banned until 1 September.The new restrictions will impact the 2020 All-Ireland championships, the League of Ireland, racing festivals and a number of other sporting events.Issuing a statement, government sources have said that local authorities will be told not to grant licences for large events in this period due to the coronavirus crisis.The Interim CEO of Football Association Ireland, Gary Owens, has called for a meeting with the government to discuss the impact of the latest ruling on the SSE Airtricity League and also its potential effect on international football if it is extended into September.The association had originally earmarked 19 June as a possible date for recommencing the League of Ireland, with plans to resume the Women’s National League a week later. Following the latest government statement, however, this date appears increasingly unlikely.Owens told FAI TV: “This is breaking news this evening and in two respects for us. The obvious question is, can we hold the international matches in the autumn period?“We really need to be able to hold those matches and have mass gatherings in September. Hopefully we can get to the end of August and that 5,000 limit will be increased.“That is a significant input and we need to take that into account, along with all the other factors which we are now analysing in advance of making a decision on the 5th of May when the Government will make their formal decision known.“Like everything else, the devil is in the detail. We really need to understand what they mean by 5,000 in terms of mass gatherings and whether that applies in stadiums and what are the criteria we would have to comply with.“We have been working with the medical team in Uefa who are helping us with guidelines, but obviously, we need to talk to the HSE and try and understand whether or not they would allow mass gatherings in football stadiums and if they do up to that level of 5,000, that could be a significant breakthrough for us.”Meanwhile a statement issued on behalf of Balybrit Racecourse, which is due to host the Galway Festival, has suggested that this year’s festival could possibly still go ahead behind closed doors.Manager of Ballybrit racecourse, Michael Moloney, confirmed that the festival ‘will not be able to take place as an event open to the general public this year’.The statement said: “In light of the evolving situation regarding Covid-19, for public health and safety reasons Galway Race Committee has reached the difficult but unavoidable decision that the 2020 Galway Races Summer Festival, due to be held from Monday 27th July to Sunday 2nd August will not be able to take place as an event open to the general public this year. We know this will be a huge disappointment for all our racegoers that attend year on year.“It may prove possible to run the Galway Races behind closed doors, dependent on Government policy and the approval of Horse Racing Ireland and Irish Horse Racing Regulatory Board.“This would be for the benefit of the racing industry, our valued partners and our television audiences at home and internationally. We are currently planning for this scenario and we will update you on progress as and when we can.”last_img read more

Robertson tells Liverpool to avoid Barça ‘hangover’ and focus on Newcastle

first_imgAndy Robertson has said Liverpool cannot afford a Lionel Messi-inflicted hangover if they want to preserve their Premier League title hopes at Newcastle.Jürgen Klopp’s team were on the receiving end of a 3-0 defeat at Barcelona in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final on Wednesday. Robertson admitted it was “baffling how that happened”, as Liverpool played well only for wasteful finishing and the brilliance of Messi to yield a first defeat in 20 games. However, the Scotland captain insisted focus must switch to Saturday evening’s awkward trip to St James’ Park, where victory is required to put the pressure back on City in the title race.“We are near the end of the season but we’ve got three, hopefully four, games left,” he said. “We’ve no time to have a hangover now. We need to go strong into the Newcastle game first and get our bodies ready, and then go again because we can’t let our foot off the gas. We need the three points and push them [City] the whole way. There can’t be a hangover. Newcastle is our full concentration now.“We have fallen short [against Barcelona] but we can be proud of the performance and we just need that bit of luck. We are still young and will still learn and be better for it in years to come. We can be proud of what we have done this season but we need one big, final push now.”Robertson believes Liverpool were beginning to take control at the Camp Nou when Messi scored his 599th Barcelona goal, and rued Mohamed Salah’s shot against the post shortly after the Argentinian’s magnificent 600th.The left-back said: “It’s a strange one because we played well but we got beat 3-0 and it’s baffling how that’s happened. We didn’t take our chances and they had a bit of luck with the second but that’s what happens. It’s going to be a tough task now but we have to think about Saturday first and foremost and then believe we can do something special on Tuesday.“The second goal was one of the luckiest goals I’ve been involved in, coming off the bar and Messi taps it in. Just as we were getting into the game and the [home] fans were starting to boo and get on top of them, and we had them where we wanted them. Unfortunately, we got caught. Then of course if Mo scores – you can’t criticise him for it but those are the fine margins. At 3-1 it is a lot better scoreline with an away goal. We need something special on Tuesday but if there is any place to do it it’s Anfield.”Robertson acquitted himself well against Messi but like Klopp, who described Messi as unstoppable afterwards, he could only salute the forward’s ultimate contribution to the tie.“I thought personally I did relatively well against him down their right-hand side but he scores two goals,” Robertson said. “So for me that’s not good enough clearly. I thought the second goal he scored was world class. You could’ve had two keepers in and we wouldn’t have saved it but that’s what he can do. That’s Messi; he’s done it for many years now. Fair play to him, he’s a world-class player and he conducts himself as a world-class player.”–Source: Guardian UKlast_img read more
