Phil Lesh & Terrapin Family Band, Midnight North, & Twiddle Team For 3-Day “Unbroken Train” Run

first_imgToday, Phil Lesh-owned San Rafael, CA venue Terrapin Crossroads announced that it’ll be hosting a three-night run dubbed “Unbroken Train.” Unbroken Train will see performances by Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band, Midnight North, and Twiddle over the three-night event spanning June 14th through 16th, with the groups’ members also collaborating in different forms.On Thursday, June 14th, Unbroken Train will kick off with a solo performance from Mihali, the frontman and guitarist of Twiddle, in the Grate Room. The next night, on Friday, June 15th, Midnight North—featuring Grahame Lesh, Elliott Peck, Alex Jordan, and Connor O’Sullivan—will be the main attraction at the Grate Room for a show billed as “Midnight North & Frends.” It’s more than likely this show will see an appearance by some, if not all, the members of Twiddle, given that the rogue spelling of “frends” has become associated with the Vermont group—the spelling comes from Twiddle’s lyrics, “There ain’t no I in Frends,” in their song, “The Frends Theme”. Rounding out the event, on Saturday, June 16th, Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band will headline Terrapin Crossroads’ outdoor Beach Park with support from all four members of Twiddle and more.The collaborations set for Unbroken Train are by no means out of left field. Twiddle, Midnight North, and Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band have an ongoing history of exchanging sit-ins with one another spanning back to the 2017 edition of Twiddle’s own Tumble Down festival, when Twiddle invited the Grateful Dead bassist and his son and guitarist, Grahame Lesh, to sit-in during their set.Earlier in May, Twiddle made their headlining debut at Red Rocks Amphitheater, and during the show, Phil and Grahame came out for a rendition of “Shakedown Street”. The next night, on May 5th, when Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band and Leftover Salmon performed at Red Rocks, Mihali helped Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band close out the show during their encore performances of “Fire On The Mountain” and “Music Never Stopped”. Closing out the weekend run, on Sunday, May 6th, Mihali performed an intimate “Mihali & Frends” set at Denver’s Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox, which saw sit-ins from Phil and Grahame Lesh and Midnight North’s Elliott Peck and Alex Jordan, in addition to members of Twiddle, Thievery Corporation, Dopapod, Stick Figure, and Turbo Suit.Tickets for the upcoming Unbroken Train run at Terrapin Crossroads from June 14th to 16th are on-sale now. You can snag tickets, including a three-night package, at Terrapin Crossroads’ website here.last_img read more

More data doesn’t make a better CEO

first_img 178SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Ask for predictive insight rather than historical data. This practice guards against another problem CEOs face as they gather information from their teams: almost all the data they get is about what has already happened, not what will happen.Therefore, one of the best forms of data the CEO can collect is the answer to this simple question: “Will your group achieve its goals on time?” In answering, the functional leader can mentally place his or her group’s data in the context of organizational priorities (step 1) and make an informed forecast.If you’d like to get some specific best practices on how to get useful, forward-looking insight from your team, I hope you’ll join us on May 24, 2015, at 1:00pm EDT for a webinar: “Why Big Data Isn’t What CEOs Need.” You can register here. Hope to see you there! As you have surely heard many times over the past few years, big data is opening a lot of doors for modern organizations. Leaders are told again and again about the virtues of being “data driven.”But the many valid uses of big data aside, it’s even more important for CEOs and leaders to guard themselves against the data deluge. I recently saw a presentation by Frank Spencer, founding principle and creative director of Kedge, and one of his slides hit the nail on the head. It read: “Data-driven approaches become a worn and familiar blanket that leaves us vulnerable to threats while blinding us to new opportunities.”If you jump into the deep end of the data pool, you will very likely reduce your ability to lead your credit union with focus. Big data is great when you have massive, highly variable data sets and machines making the decisions—but it doesn’t necessarily help CEOs lead their organizations day to day.No matter how smart you are, it’s impossible to expect that you can grasp all the functional data generated by the organization—from accounting, lending, marketing, HR, and so on. With the volume of enterprise data projected to grow 50x year-over-year between now and 2020, CEOs are at risk of losing the signal in the noise.If you’ve led as many executive team meetings as I have, you know the pain point here: slide after slide, graph after graph, and the feeling that you’re getting a lot of spin and very little insight about what you really want to know: Are we on track as an organization? Will we meet our objectives?Here’s the approach I advise CEOs to take to ensure they’re getting not just loads of information, but the information they need to run the credit union well: Set clear priorities and metrics to collect data against. The best way to guard against a bottoms-up flow of too much data is to reverse it and come at the problem from the top down. As CEO, ensure that you’ve established a clear destination for the organization, broken that into a few success criteria, and asked functional leaders to communicate their department’s data in terms of those criteria.last_img read more

Hughton keen to keep Hoolahan

first_img Now Hughton has confirmed he wants to keep the seven-cap midfielder and is instead focused on bringing in reinforcements rather than seeing players leave. When asked if Hoolahan could be sold this month, Hughton said: “At the moment our concentration is on can we add to the squad, can we improve the squad, not on letting players go out. “We’ve had a few injuries, especially in midfield, and then Michael Turner will be out for a while as well. “We are trying as hard as we can (to sign players) the same as everybody else, but January is a notoriously bad time to bring in players. “But they also have to be right for the club.” Norwich slumped to a 3-0 FA Cup third-round replay defeat at Fulham on Tuesday, leaking goals from Darren Bent, Ashkan Dejagah and Steve Sidwell. Hughton shrugged off the building pressure in light of the Canaries’ eighth consecutive match without a win. Shouldering responsibility on himself, the former Newcastle boss said this run is not the most testing of his Norwich tenure. Wes Hoolahan will not leave Norwich this month, according to manager Chris Hughton. The 31-year-old Republic of Ireland midfielder was the subject of a bid from Aston Villa, driven by former Canaries boss Paul Lambert. Norwich’s board rejected the offer outright and have since refused to countenance the idea of Hoolahan leaving Carrow Road in the January transfer window. Norwich have already signed Jonas Gutierrez on loan from Newcastle this month, the Argentina winger linking back up with former manager Hughton. The Norwich chief now expects to have Alexander Tettey and Anthony Pilkington fit for Saturday’s Barclays Premier League clash at home to Hull. “They have now trained this week and are very close to being back in the squad,” said Hughton. “They will be good additions back in, and on top of that we’ll keep working hard to see if we can make any more signings. “Jonas will be a good addition for us – he knows the league very, very well, he’s played nigh on 200 games in this division. “So he’ll be a bonus for us, and we’re working as hard as we can to address other possible additions.” Press Associationlast_img read more
