Trey Anastasio Band Wraps 4-Night Run With Explosive Brooklyn Bowl Finale [Photo/Video]

first_imgTrey Anastasio Band continued their extended weekend run on Monday with their second and final performance at Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY. One of the smaller rooms in which you’ll see TAB play, the Bowl was packed to the brim when Trey Anastasio‘s eight-piece solo outfit took the stage at the beloved concert venue/bowling alley for just the third time ever.Trey and company opened up the first set with “Blaze On”, which TAB debuted three nights prior at Anastasio’s Me & My Mind premiere and featured his fellow Phish bandmate Page McConnell. Moving out of the show-opening “Blaze On”, TAB offered up a hearty helping of setlist staples, including “Alive Again”, “Liquid Time”, “Burlap Sack and Pumps”, “Night Speaks to a Woman”, “Curlew’s Call”, and “Dark and Down”. TAB brought their first set to a close with “First Tube”, a tune that he debuted in 1998 with his 8 Foot Florescent Tubes one-off project at Burlington, VT’s Higher Ground.Following a brief setbreak, Trey and his cohorts returned to the stage to open up their second set with “Money, Love and Change”, highlighted by some ferocious guitar work from Anastasio. “Last Tube” and “Speak To Me” were up next, followed by “The Land Of Nod”, last played by TAB in 2017. The set continued with “Alaska” smoothly sliding into “In Rounds” before the band brought the set to a close with a silky-smooth pairing of “Shine” into “Rise/Come Together”. Unlike the previous night, where Trey emerged solo with his acoustic guitar, Trey Anastasio Band returned in full for their encore with a two-song offering of “Drifting” and “Ghost”.Next up for Trey Anastasio Band is a four-night run of shows throughout the Southeast, including performances in St. Petersburg, St. Augustine, and Atlanta.

Defective cameras increase risks of jailbreak – prison officer

first_imgAs the inquiry into the riots at the Camp Street Prison continues, Commissioners heard on Tuesday thatPrison Officer Dekanna Benjamin taking the standdefective surveillance cameras at the penitentiary increase the risk of a jailbreak. Prison Officer Dekanna Benjamin in her testimony explained that surveillance equipment has been in a non-operational state for “three or four months”. She conceded that the non-functioning equipment did impact upon her work to some extent. The officer noted that she was however able to carry out her job “effectively”.Benjamin, who has been stationed in the Operations Room for over two years, told Commissioners of the sections which are currently without coverage, but the media was advised that this information must not be made public for security reasons. Apart from being responsible for the video surveillance, it was explained that the Operations Room has oversight for telephone switchboards and arms and ammunition.The officer who was stationed from the evening of March 2 into the morning of March 3 also told Commissioners of the prevailing challenges which may hinder the overall department. Benjamin testified that the Operations Room department is understaffed and would sometimes have only two officers monitoring all of the prison activities. Despite these many challenges, Officer Benjamin pledged that she will remain in the prison service.The Commissioner of Inquiry (CoI) also heard that there are no smoke detectors at the penitentiary. The Commission was previously told of contraband items like matches and lighters being in possession of the inmates.Fellow Prison Officer Esther Charles, who joined the prison service in June 1998, also took the stand at Tuesday’s CoI. She testified that Deputy Director of Prisons Gladwin Samuels and Director Carl Graham arrived at 10:55h and 08:05h respectively, but was unsure whether or not they had ever left the facilities.Charles also related that on March 3, she was the first officer to inform her colleagues of the fire which she testified started around 11:00h.The prison officer who has functioned in the Operations Room for some 10 years also explained that she had called the fire service and noted that she would also keep personal notes of times when events occur to maintain accuracy.When the officer referenced her notes from the day of the March 3 fire, it was revealed that before other joint services members were called, the fire service was called at 11:04h. This account was in contrast to that included in the evidence provided by the Guyana Fire Service on April 13 which stated that the report of fire report at the prisons on March 3 was received at 11:18h.At that time, in cross-examination, Attorney Glen Hanoman had postulated that a staff member attached to the Fire Service assisted in “drafting up the log book” for the purpose of bringing it to the Commission and noted that another log book exists for March 2 and March 3. Hanoman had raised suspicion since the Georgetown Fire Station’s log book started at the time of the riots.After a period of rioting, 17 inmates at the Camp Street facilities lost their lives. The hearings will resume this morning.last_img read more

1 dead, another missing as boat explodes off Waini Coast

first_imgThe body of one person has been recovered while another is missing and fear dead after a speedboat, carrying nearly two dozen passengers, exploded on Sunday morning off the Waini Coast.The incident occurred sometime after 07:00h about 10 miles off the Waini River mouth in Region One (Barima-Waini).Guyana Times understands that the boat was ferrying approximately 21 passengers from neighbouring Venezuela to Charity on the Essequibo Coast when the incident occurred. Both Guyanese and Venezuelans were on board the vessel at the time.Divisional Commander Kevin Adonis confirmed the tragic incident, but could not divulge further details. He told this publication on two occasions, “The ranks are still out there.”Nevertheless, Regional Chairman Brentnol Ashley told this newspaper that 19 persons on board the vessel have been rescued while one body was discovered. The deceased, he stated, is said to be a Venezuelan.Meanwhile, one of the survivors – an elderly Venezuelan woman— was severely burnt during the explosion and was rushed to the Mabaruma District Hospital.Up to late Sunday evening, arrangements were being made to have her medevacked to the city for further treatment at the Georgetown Public Hospital.According to reports, the two outboard engines backfired, causing a fire. This created panic among the passengers.As the flames quickly spread throughout the vessel, the passengers were forced to jump into the water. Some attempted to swim to the shore, which was in sight, while others were picked up by rescuers.The elderly woman, who is said to be in her 70s, had held onto the burning vessel as it sank; hence, she sustained first-degree burns. An investigation was immediately launched into the explosion.last_img read more
