Greensky Bluegrass Announces New Album, Tour With Circles Around The Sun & Billy Strings

first_imgAfter wrapping up their first leg of fall tour with Ghost Light and The Lil Smokies yesterday, Greensky Bluegrass has announced their ninth studio effort and a supporting winter tour with Circles Around The Sun, Billy Strings, and more. The upcoming new album, All For Money, is officially due out on January 18th, 2019. As promised by the band, they will be “sharing new music and behind the scenes footage from the recording sessions” across the coming weeks.“The title of the album comes from a song with the same name. I thought on this concept for a long time,” said Paul Hoffman in a press release. “This paradox that exists in doing what you love or having your dreams come true. We are so truly blessed. But also, what if the support and all the attention starts to feel like crowding and containment. I wanted to be careful about how to say this. It’s tricky. I’m not harboring any resent or regret. Far from it in fact. Pride and honor. But if we get tired or if we’re making decisions based on our needs to eat or the desires of others, well, that’s just not ‘doing what you love.’ The song and the album are so much about us. It’s about what we do and the love we receive in return. So ‘if you need a voice, I’m yours friend. For something better in the end.”Following the second leg of their fall tour, which will culminate with a four-night NYE run in Chicago, IL with Jeff Austin Band and Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, Greensky Bluegrass will warm up this winter with a seven-date run with Circles Around The Sun. The swing with CATS will hit Albany, NY (1/10); Philadelphia, PA (1/11); New York, NY (1/12); Covington, KY (1/16); Nashville, TN (1/17); St. Louis, MO (1/18); and Atlanta, GA (1/19).Then, the jamgrass quintet will link up with another special guest yet-to-be-announced for a run through St. Petersburg, FL (1/22); Charleston, SC (1/23); Knoxville, TN (1/24); Raleigh, NC (1/25); and Charlotte, NC (1/26). From there, rising star Billy Strings will join GSBG for a run through Portland, ME (1/29); Boston, MA (1/30); Jim Thrope, PA (1/31); Washington, DC (2/1-2/2); Cleveland, OH (2/5); Columbus, OH (2/6); and Pittsburgh, PA (2/7). The tour will close with two nights in Detroit, MI (2/8-2/9), with support to be announced soon.A limited fan club lottery is open now on the band’s website through tomorrow, Wednesday at 5 pm ET.

Belles invite fathers for Senior Dads Weekend

first_imgMembers of the Saint Mary’s class of 2014 and their fathers enjoyed events at Saint Mary’s and Notre Dame this weekend during the College’s annual Senior Dads Weekend. Susie Larson, vice president of the 2014 class board, who helped organize the event, said the board worked hard to find an open weekend for this event since last spring, because it had to account for the numerous events on campus and the football schedule. Larson said there was a great deal of interest in all of the scheduled events, which resulted in a large turnout from the senior class and their fathers. “The weekend had 280 students register and our class is 298 strong, so we were extremely excited about the turnout,” Larson said.  Student body president Kat Sullivan said the class board did a good job of including the entire senior class community. “Regardless of who the father figure is in a girl’s life, the class board made sure the events were welcoming to all, including some mothers,” Sullivan said.  The weekend’s events opened with a beer garden and silent auction Friday evening in the College’s Student Center.  Sullivan said the event included an open bar with all types of beer and wine, and the silent auction was filled with donated items from the fathers. “Whatever money that was made from the auction was then given to the class of 2014’s board, so it was a great way to fundraise for future class events,” Sullivan said.  “Also, everyone who went got a beer sty with a French cross on it and little koozies with bowties on them to commemorate the weekend.” On Saturday, the College Archives and the Riedinger House were open for morning tours. Sullivan said this helped the girls to share their College’s history with their fathers.  Senior Bridget Byrne said the tours of Notre Dame Stadium on Saturday afternoon were one of her favorite parts of the weekend, as well as a watch party for the Notre Dame vs. ASU game at CJ’s Bar later that evening. “I have always loved watching games with my Dad, so this was something special for us to do together before graduation,” Byrne said. “It was also so fun to do push-ups in CJ’s during the game watch, and I know all of my friends were really looking forward to this weekend after all of the fun we had at Junior Mom’s Weekend last spring.” The weekend culminated with Mass in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit in Le Mans Hall on Saturday night, Sullivan said.  At the Mass, Saint Mary’s students and their fathers celebrated their relationships.  The celebrant, Fr. John Pearson, stressed the importance of letting their parents know how grateful the students were for their love and support, Sullivan said.  “Fr. John talked a lot about making sure us girls recognized that our fathers make sacrifices for us not because they’re expecting a thank you, but because they love us,” Sullivan said. “I think that that really resonated with a lot of girls and their fathers that were present.” The parent weekends at Saint Mary’s are among many students’ favorite traditions on campus, Larson said. “I am a strong supporter in how Saint Mary’s organizes their parent weekends throughout our four years on campus because I think it reflects our experience growing as young women,” she said.

EDITORIAL: List of Heroes

first_imgCategories: Editorial, OpinionIn the National Archives, where many of the nation’s important documents are kept, is a collection of yellowing papers titled plainly: World War II Honor List of Dead and Missing Army and Army Air Forces Personnel from New York.It is exactly what it says it is — an alphabetical list, broken down by county, of all the soldiers from our state killed during that war.It’s very military-like in its form. Each name is typed in capital letters: last name, first name, middle initial. And each name is followed by the soldier’s seven- or eight-digit serial number, rank and a code.A casualty code.DOW. DOI. KIA. DNB. FOD. M.Died of Wounds. Died of Injuries. Killed in Action. Died Non-Battle. Finding of Death. Missing.You’d think boiling down the deaths of these brave soldiers to the bare minimum amount of information on a long, typed list, then storing it in a building with billions of other pieces of paper, would take away the humanity. That not showing the pictures of the dead and not offering details of the casualty codes would make the deaths less personal.  And what of the missing? What became of them? Where did they find their final place of rest?The military can boil down the horrors of war to letters and numbers on a page. But it can’t take away the suffering. It can’t take away the loss.It can’t take away their heroism in service to our country.Every name on every list like this, from every war, every serial number, every code, belongs to someone.And each of these individuals deserves our eternal gratitude on this day of memorial.Please take time to honor them. That somehow reducing their lives to a few taps of a clerk’s typewriter would make the horrors they saw and the pain they suffered easier to comprehend.But in fact, poring over the lists of names has the opposite effect.In the brevity of each entry, the list actually makes their sacrifices even more stark and real, in that it forces us to ask questions.Who were these soldiers? Were they young boys or were they older? Are those on the list who share the same last name brothers or cousins or father and son?What’s behind those casualty codes? How were they killed? Where were they when they died? Did they hear the bullet or the bomb coming? Did they write their mother or sweetheart in their final days? Were they alone? Or did they die with their buddies?For those who died of their wounds, how much did they suffer and for how long? What were they thinking as they lay on the battlefield until they were carried off? Who risked their own life to save these wounded soldiers, only to have them pass away later?center_img More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?last_img read more

EU to draw up safe countries list as borders open to travelers

first_imgThe European Union should gradually reopen its borders to non-EU travellers from July and draw up a list of countries outside the bloc for which restrictions can be removed, the European Commission said on Thursday.The EU executive said the list of countries with access should be based on three criteria: countries should have COVID-19 under at least as much control as the EU average, have containment measures during travel and also be willing to let in EU visitors.EU Home Affairs Commissioner Ylva Johansson said decisions on borders were for individual countries to take but she hoped the Commission could help ensure a coordinated approach, something she believed member states themselves also wanted. Topics : It also recommended on Thursday that the countries of the Schengen area, which normally have no border checks, lift controls put in place to the control the spread of the coronavirus by June 15.However, some countries such as Portugal and Spain have indicated they will not do so by Monday.The EU executive also proposed that a ban on non-essential visitors from outside the area be extended until June 30.The Schengen area comprises 22 EU countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. EU members Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania, which are not yet part of Schengen, have also applied the ban on entry from outside the zone.The travel ban has not applied to Ireland, which is not part of the Schengen area, and former EU member Britain.center_img The Commission proposed allowing entry from the outset for travellers from the western Balkans countries of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia.Johansson declined to name any other country.”This has to be done step by step. So I think this list will grow, maybe not from day to day but at least maybe from week to week,” she told a video news conference.Under the Commission proposal, travellers would be allowed in based on their place of residence, not nationality, and they would not have to go into quarantine on arrival.last_img read more

Jakarta to reimpose odd-even plate policy as traffic returns

first_img“From our analysis, the traffic volume in some parts of the capital has increased beyond the normal condition before the pandemic,” he said.The odd-even traffic policy was reimposed because the Jakarta administration had removed the requirement of obtaining an entry and exit permit (SIKM) to travel in or out the capital city during PSBB, Syafrin said.As the SIKM requirement had been removed, the administration no longer had a means of limiting people’s mobility, so the license plate traffic policy had been reactivated, he explained.The 25 thoroughfares where the policy will be enforced include Jl. Medan Merdeka Barat, Jl. MH Thamrin, Jl. Jend. Sudirman, Jl. Jend. S. Parman. Jl. Gatot Subroto, Jl. MT Haryono, Jl. JR Rasuna Said, Jl. Gajah Mada, Jl. Sisingamangaraja, Jl. Panglima Polim, Jl. Tomang Raya, Jl. Pramuka and Jl. Kramat Raya. (dpk)Topics : The Jakarta administration will reimpose the odd-even license plate policy on Monday in an effort to limit unnecessary car travel as the COVID-19 pandemic wears on.Jakarta Transportation Agency head Syafrin Liputo said the odd-even traffic policy aimed to prevent the accumulation of travelers on the road. “We hope the policy will deter people from making unnecessary trips. For example, [people with] cars with odd-numbered license plates would stay at home. The pattern [of restrictions] is expected to decrease traffic volume and, most importantly, ensure that there will not be an accumulation [of people] in public spaces,” he said on Friday, as reported by kompas.com.The policy, which was lifted by the administration in the early days of the COVID-19 outbreak in March, will return to 25 thoroughfares on Monday and will be in place from then on from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.Read also: No odd-even policy yet during transition period, Anies saysSyafrin explained that the administration had decided to reimpose the policy because traffic had increased as the city began its transition out of large-scale social restrictions (PSBB).last_img read more

Louis van Gaal vows to leave if he loses confidence of players

first_img And his chances of coming through a crunch week unscathed have been dealt a blow with the news that Wayne Rooney will be missing for Saturday’s game against West Ham and United’s crucial match in Wolfsburg three days later. The only way United can guarantee their place in the knockout stages on Tuesday is if they win at the Wolfsburg Arena. As Van Gaal pointed out, he has walked away from clubs of his own accord during his 24-year management career. After falling out with a number of players, Van Gaal walked away from Barcelona during his second spell at the club and he left his role as Ajax technical director following a power struggle with then manager Ronald Koeman. Van Gaal also threatened to walk away from AZ Alkmaar in 2008 after finishing 11th in the Eredivisie, but was persuaded to stay on and led the club to the title the following year. And despite supporter opposition at some of his former clubs, Van Gaal believes he is still highly regarded wherever he has been. “I’m happy that when I’m gone, people are saying nice things about me,” he said. “It’s fantastic that people are saying when I’m gone, ‘Oh, he was very good, he gave structure and was the basis for other things’. But it’s not the most important thing for me. The most important thing for me as a trainer, coach and manager is the chemistry between me and my players and my board. “It should be good and otherwise I would be gone.” Rooney may not be enjoying his best season at United – he has scored just two Premier League goals – but a man of his experience will be missed in Wolfsburg next Tuesday. ”It’s a nasty injury,” the United manager said of Rooney, who has played 499 times for the club. ”He shall not play his 500th game (on Saturday) because he is more injured than I thought. ”His ankle is not good enough and we have to recover that ankle with a lot of strength. He has to do a lot of exercises to make his ankle stronger. He needs more time.” When asked if Rooney would miss the match at Wolfsburg, Van Gaal said: ”Yes, I think so.” United’s squad is looking bare ahead of Saturday’s match at Old Trafford. Marcos Rojo is out for a number of weeks after dislocating his shoulder, while Ander Herrera and Phil Jones have not overcome the hamstring and ankle injuries they suffered at Watford a fortnight ago. Luke Shaw and Antonio Valencia are also sidelined by their long-term injuries. But Van Gaal is not sure whether he will be dipping into the transfer market next month. “We are looking (to sign players) but it is not so easy to buy and in January it’s more difficult,” he said “We are looking but it is not that it is for sure.” Louis van Gaal has vowed to walk away from Manchester United if he loses the dressing room. Press Association Should Van Gaal’s men drop into the Europa League after being handed a relatively easy Champions League group, it will come as a big blow to the Dutchman’s credibility. United may be third in the Premier League, but some supporters are not happy with the often dull style of play under the 64-year-old and rumours persist of unrest within the squad. Van Gaal insists he has a good relationship with his players, but should that change, he will leave his post. “The most important thing is the chemistry between players and staff,” Van Gaal said. “And when I have the feeling that the chemistry is there, I will always work to my utmost best. “But when I have a single feeling that it is not like that, I’m the first coach that quits and I have proved that already with my former clubs and former jobs. “Yes, of course because I always gave my clubs structure and I think structure is very important in a club, but also in a company, everywhere.” When asked about his relationship with his players, Van Gaal said: “It’s good.” last_img read more
