Watch Joe Dart & Lake Street Dive’s Bridget Kearney Trade Bass Solos At A Dublin Vulfpeck Show

first_img[Video: Wayne Whistler] [Video: Maurizio Pittau] On October 1st, the fan-favorite funk act Vulfpeck continued their European tour at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre, kicking off a two-night run in Ireland’s capital ahead of this weekend’s two-night tour closer in London. During the performance, the band offered up the live debuts of both “Grandma” off 2017’s Mr. Finish Line and “Lost My Treble Long Ago”, a recent single from mid-September that was released when the group announced their new album, Hill Climber, due out in December. However, the surprises at the Dublin show didn’t stop there, as the band welcoming out Lake Street Dive bassist Bridget Kearney during a take on “Beastly”.Following the group’s ‘TED Talk”, which saw frontman Jack Stratton hyping up the crowd with a hilariously dry and straightfaced seminar, the band moved into “Back Pocket”, giving bassist Joe Dart time to truly move into the spotlight with the song’s now-famed bassline. From there, Vulfpeck quickly moved into “Beastly”, with Joe Dart continuing to propel the song. Eventually, Bridget Kearney was welcomed out with an acoustic standup bass in tow during the number, and both Bridget and Joe swapped virtuosic bass solos during the peak of the tune. Notably, Bridget is no stranger to the extended Vulfpeck family—she has previously toured with Theo Katzmann, serving as support and frequently sitting in with the band during his solo shows.From there, Vulfpeck covered U2‘s “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For”, a song selection that no doubt paid homage to the Irish crowd, before closing out their set with two fan-favorite numbers, “Christmas In L.A.” and “Dean Town”. The group then returned for a three-song encore, offering up the more recent “Birds Of A Feather, We Rock Together” off Mr. Finish Line, in addition to more classic fare, “Outro” and “It Gets Funkier”.You can check out two full videos of Vulfpeck’s collaboration with Lake Street Dive bassist Bridget Kearney below.last_img read more

New Zealand shocked as policeman shot dead in rare attack

first_imgAn unarmed New Zealand policeman was shot and killed on an Auckland street Friday, becoming the first officer to die on duty for more than a decade in the normally peaceful South Pacific nation.Police said the officer and a colleague were approaching a crashed car when a gunman produced a rifle and opened fire.One officer died, another received serious leg injuries and a bystander was struck and badly hurt as the two men drove off in a second car, New Zealand’s police commissioner Andrew Coster said. “This is devastating news. Our police officers work hard every day to keep us and our communities safe,” she said.The slain policeman, whose details have not been released, is the 23rd to be shot dead on duty since 1890, according to the police website, with the previous fatal shooting in 2009.Coster declined to speculate on a possible motive for the shooting.”This was the type of work that our officers undertake every day to keep the public safe,” Coster told reporters, adding “the situation unfolded very quickly”.”At this stage, there is nothing to indicate that this job was going to be anything out of the ordinary.”No charges had been laid by late Friday and Coster said the priority “is to hold this offender to account”.Coster said the officers were unarmed when they came under fire, which is standard for New Zealand police.The force last week decided against introducing armed patrols and Coster said the shooting would not prompt him to revisit the issue.However, he said police on duty in the west Auckland suburb of Massey where the shooting took place would be issued firearms for the time being as a precaution.The death comes just a day after parliament voted to further tighten New Zealand’s firearms laws in the wake of last year’s Christchurch mosques massacre, when a lone gunman murdered 51 Muslim worshippers.Topics : He said two persons of interest were being questioned after being apprehended several hours later following a massive manhunt which also resulted in police seizing a firearm.”This is a shocking situation. It is the worst news that police and police officers’ families can ever receive in the course of what we do,” Coster said. “Our officers walk towards danger every day, our job is to keep them safe.”Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern offered condolences to the officer’s family and police colleagues.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

Kaiser hoping for one last round with Wisconsin

first_imgJAKE NAUGHTON/Herald photoItis often difficult to judge how valuable a player is to a team by statistics orresults alone. Some of the most talented athletes can be distractions to theirteam through complaining or lack of effort. On the other hand, some players canoften bring the most value to their team through their attitude and work ethic.This scenario holds especially true for Jeff Kaiser, a UW men’s golf teamsenior.Kaiser,the only senior on the team this year, has been a valuable asset not only incompetition, but also in his leadership skills.?”He’s just a competitor,” head coach JimSchuman said.? “He’s done so manygreat things for us.? He may not bethe guy who shoots the lowest scores, but on a day-in, day-out basis he’s doneeverything we asked of him.”AlthoughKaiser struggled through a portion of the year, he used his struggles to helpinspire his teammates.? For part ofthe season Kaiser wasn’t actually in the lineup, but he continued to work hardto earn himself a spot in the top group again.?“Ithought he showed the leadership … this year probably off the course more thananything else, how he handled himself when he wasn’t playing well,” Schumansaid.? “He broke into the lineupjust the last couple tournaments of the spring, kind of struggled with his gamefor a while there.? I think the wayhe handled that adversity off the course was his biggest role in terms ofleadership.”Hishard work paid off last weekend at the Big Ten Championships at MichiganState.? Kaiser shot a 74, two overpar, on Sunday to help Wisconsin to the third-best score in the finalround.? Although it was not enoughto lead the team into the top standings of the tournament, the effort shown byKaiser was typical of how he handled himself this season.?“Igenerally just try lead by example,” Kaiser said.? “I try and work hard always in practice or in the gym, inschool, whatever we’re doing.”Itwas this work ethic that guided the team, both coaches and teammatesalike.?“He’smeant a great deal to our team,” assistant coach Brian Brodell said. “I’velearned a lot from him.”Kaiser,one of only two captains on the team this year, may get another shot todemonstrate his leadership before his time at UW is done. If everything worksout, the Badgers will compete again in the NCAA Regionals May 15. Seeking toimprove on the team’s eighth-place finish at the Big Ten Championships, Kaiseris fired up.?“Idefinitely don’t want to be done,” Kaiser said. “Hopefully I’ll get anotheropportunity.”Thethought of finishing his career didn’t actually occur to Kaiser until his finalround at the Big Ten Championships.?“[It]kind of hit me; this could’ve been my last round. It’s pretty sad,” Kaisersaid.?Inaddition to continuing his career as a Badger, Kaiser is also motivated by lastyear’s NCAA Regionals, where Wisconsin missed out on moving to NCAAChampionships by one shot.?“Thatwas extremely disappointing,” Kaiser said. “There’s a lot of good teams outthere.? We need to work harder andget it together at the right time.?Hopefully we’ll get the opportunity to do that.”Regardlesswhether the team makes the regionals or not, the determination Kaiser has shownhis teammates and coaching staff can only help make the team better in years tocome.?last_img read more

What is ‘Sahara’ fact, what is fiction?

first_img“You have two men here who tell different stories,” Fields said to jurors. “It’s Mr. Anschutz who wants you to enrich him at Mr. Cussler’s expense.” Cussler sued Crusader, claiming it reneged on a contract that give him creative control. Crusader filed a countersuit against Cussler, claiming he was disruptive during the filmmaking process and disparaged the movie before its release. Both parties seek millions of dollars in damages. Each side blames the other for the dismal box-office returns of “Sahara,” which starred Matthew McConaughey and Penelope Cruz, and grossed only $68 million in the U.S. Jurors will have to decide whether to believe a best-selling author or a reclusive billionaire in a trial involving dueling lawsuits over the movie “Sahara,” an attorney argued Tuesday. Lawyer Bert Fields wrapped up his closing arguments, saying his client, Clive Cussler, should receive damages because a movie production company broke a deal that gave the novelist approval rights over the “Sahara” screenplay. Lawyers for the other side will present their closing arguments today. Superior Court Judge John Shook adjourned the trial for most of Tuesday because of an immigration protest in downtown Los Angeles. Fields told jurors the trial pits two men against each other: Cussler, the aging author who has written 32 books, and reclusive billionaire Philip Anschutz, who owns Crusader Entertainment, the company that produced the 2005 action-adventure film. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Raiders’ Lamarcus Joyner will be center of attention in secondary

first_imgALAMEDA — Lamarcus Joyner is listed as a safety but that doesn’t even begin to describe his duties on the Raiders’ defense.It’s sort of like calling Antonio Brown a “wide receiver.” Brown has been coach Jon Gruden’s shiny new toy throughout the offseason, which enters its final session of organized team activities next week. Brown can line up outside, in the slot and even in the backfield, with the ability to flex or go in motion to create mismatches.Gruden and general manager Mike Mayock …last_img
