Phish Is In Tech Rehearsals In Reno For Their Upcoming Summer Tour

first_imgUPDATE – July 16th, 2018 – 10:30 pm Eastern: The Phish From The Road (@Phish_FTR) Twitter account has shared a number of photos from today’s rehearsals. Check them out below: Phish‘s 2018 summer tour kicks off tomorrow night, Tuesday, July 17th, at Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harvey’s in Stateline, Nevada. Yesterday, bassist Mike Gordon shared a selfie of the band rehearsing at an indoor arena with their full stage setup, as they customarily do prior to the start of tours. (Last year, the band rented out an arena in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for the week ahead of their summer tour opener in Chicago). The picture was taken at the Reno Events Center in Reno, NV, roughly an hour’s drive north of Harvey’s up I-580. While the first news of these indoor tech rehearsals was floated yesterday, the band has been preparing for this summer’s tour for some time. On June 29th, Gordon posted a photo to his Instagram page of himself and drummer Jon Fishman in a practice space with the caption, “Summah rehearsals.”center_img In addition to their Phish-specific rehearsals, the band members have been keeping busy with other projects in recent weeks. Trey Anastasio recently wrapped up a three-night run with his trio-turned-quartet including his first-ever performance in New York’s Central Park; Mike Gordon and his solo outfit headlined last weekend’s Breckenridge Brewery Hootenanny in Littleton, Colorado; and Page McConnell sat in with Russell Batiste in New Orleans in late June, where they confirmed onstage that a new Vida Blue album was in the works. Jon Fishman did some touring with the Mallett Brothers earlier this year, and recently spoke about his excitement for Phish’s upcoming tour on a local Maine late-night talk show.During Fishman’s talk show appearance, host Danny Cashman asked the drummer if he still felt excitement about Phish’s upcoming tour, even after all these years. “Yeah, now more than ever,” Fish responded. “I’m 53 years old, and I feel like I’m actually starting to get good.” He continued, after pausing for laughs:No, seriously, I’m starting to really break ground into areas of drumming that I haven’t heard from other people yet. And the band, I think, is starting to… We broke up from ’04–’09, and it took us some years to get back [to] where we left off. And I feel like we’re starting to get into new levels of listening and improvisational abilities and stuff that surpass where we left off in ’04, and it’s very exciting.All things [re]considered, it seems as though Phish will be prepared to hit the ground running when they arrive at Harvey’s tomorrow. And that’s a good thing, too—after their most recent performance at the Stateline, Nevada venue in 2013 produced perhaps the most lauded jam of 3.0, the “Tahoe Tweezer“, expectations are high for the sold-out two-night run.Have fun, and be safe out there, kids. Viva la Phish tour!last_img read more

Changes coming to elk hunting in East Kootenay

first_imgThe Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations has announced changes to the elk hunting season in the East Kootenay.For this fall, the elk hunting seasons in the South Trench of the Kootenay region will be as follows: General Open Season for antlerless elk in 4-03 Zone X (includes portions of 4-2 to 4-5 and 4-20 to 4-22), Sept. 20 to Sept. 30 – CLOSED. Senior/youth season for antlerless elk in 4-03 Zone X (includes portions of 4-2 to 4-5 and 4-20 to 4-22), Sept. 10 to Sept. 14 – CLOSED. Senior/youth season for antlerless elk in 4-26 Zone X (includes portions of 4-25 and 4-26), Sept. 10 to Sept. 19 – CLOSED. For a detailed map of Zone X, please consult Page 52 of the 2012-2014 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis at: other elk hunting seasons in the Kootenay region remain unaffected. The elk hunting seasons were initially expanded in 2010 to help reduce crop damage in the South Trench area.However, crop damage has persisted, despite a decrease in elk numbers.The ministry is considering a number of site-specific measures in those agricultural areas hardest hit. Local stakeholders are currently reviewing options to ensure elk are managed sustainably and in a manner that meets the interests of all involved.This year’s hunting season closures are guided by the Kootenay Elk Management Plan that called for a 20- to 40-per-cent reduction to local elk populations. Elk populations now have been reduced 35 per cent, and lowering the elk harvest is now needed to maintain elk numbers at the management target agreed to in the plan, and to avoid continued population declines.Population surveys conducted in January 2013 estimate there are 7,509 elk in the South Trench area. The 2008 population for elk in the South Trench was estimated at 11,580.last_img read more

Blatter backs new FIFA boss Infantino

first_imgZURICH (AP):At one minute past six on Friday evening in Zurich, Sepp Blatter had a glass of white wine and exhaled deeply.FIFA had finally elected a new president and Blatter was relieved of the title after almost 18 years.”It is a relief. I had this burden on me,” he told The Associated Press yesterday, seeming at peace and enjoying his first day out of FIFA’s employment since 1975.”It was even a welcome day yesterday, 18:01, when they had a new president,” Blatter said in the European style for 6:01 p.m.Blatter was unable to hand over power in person to Gianni Infantino, 35 years younger and a fellow native of the rural Valais canton in Switzerland.Banned from duty since October by FIFA’s ethics committee, Blatter was barred from attending the election hall across the city from his daughter’s apartment. There, they watched the tense event unfold on television.When the moment came that his beloved presidency ended, Blatter said he was with his daughter, Corinne, sharing a bottle of white wine from his home region.POTENTIAL NEW DAWNThe election was hailed as a potential new dawn for FIFA after nine months of turmoil since American and Swiss federal prosecutors revealed the scope of their investigations into corruption, which forced Blatter out with three years left in his fifth presidential term.On the day after, there are clear blue skies, but the crisply cold air on a hill overlooking Zurich left the 79-year-old Blatter feeling the chill during several minutes spent outside with the newspaper photographer.”It was important for FIFA to have a change,” said Blatter.”He is a young man, he is powerful, he has a lot of energy, and I am sure he will do the right job,” Blatter said of Infantino, a former lawyer.last_img read more

World Cup 2019: Border picks Kohli, Morgan, Finch as 3 skippers to watch out for

first_imgCricket legend Allan Border has handpicked Virat Kohli, Eoin Morgan, and Aaron Finch as the three skippers to watch out for in the ICC ODI World Cup, starting May 30 in the United Kingdom.Border, who led Australia to World Cup triumph in 1987, said Kohli’s aggressive and “in-your-face” style of captaincy makes him a different kind of a leader than Morgan and Finch.”Virat Kohli, I think he’s a different type of captain. He’s a bit more of a boisterous-type player and wears his heart on his sleeve,” Border told”So the players know if they’ve stuffed up because he’s one of those really in-your-face-type skippers.”Border, who captained Australia in 178 ODIs, however, refused to rank the trio in any order but is mighty impressed with Morgan under whose leadership England have reached the pinnacle of ODI cricket.”England, I think they’re doing exceptionally well. They’ve brought a different game plan to the table which is going to be interesting to see how it pans out in the World Cup. They’re a dangerous side because of it and you know as the bowling group you’re under pressure,” he said.”The way it looks to me, they might drop the odd game but they’re going to win enough games to get through to the semi-finals and that’s what it’s all about.”That game plan under Trevor Bayliss as a coach and Eoin Morgan, I think he’s a seriously good one-day cricketer, and he’s as good a captain as there is going around. Tactically he’s very good and their game plan at the moment is a dangerous game plan to play against.”advertisementThe 63-year-old former left-handed batsman was also impressed with compatriot Finch’s leadership qualities, especially under difficult circumstances.”Aaron Finch is doing a great job. He’s got a good feel around the group, I think that’s what he brings to his captaincy,” Border said.”Everyone knows their responsibilities and it’s a good environment to play in. So that’s a good start as a captain. He’s done a very good job.”Tactically, I think they (Kohli, Morgan, and Finch) all do very well.Also Read | I used sun screen, zip, mints while bowling: PanesarAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Don’t read much into indifferent Australia series, says ChahalAlso Seelast_img read more


first_imgWith the internet ready and available for access by virtually every Australian, there is no better way to build the communication channels in our sport. These channels are vital to the growth and development of touch at a local, regional, state and national level. ATA has seen the benefits of improved communication through the homepage and the MyClubTouch website and many other permits and local associations around Australia are seeing this as well. Newsletters that are able to be viewed on the computer and loaded on the internet are becoming common and the development of excellent websites that are regularly updated is also becoming common. Another site has come to ATA’s attention as an example of a local association making the most of their internet site.

10 months agoMan Utd boss Solskjaer on beating Huddersfield: It’s a mindset change

first_imgMan Utd boss Solskjaer on beating Huddersfield: It’s a mindset changeby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he’s been able to change the “mindset” of his players after victory over Huddersfield.Paul Pogba scored twice for the 3-1 win.Solskjaer said, “You don’t change anything in one week, but you change the mindset. I want my team to play in a certain way and I give them little pointers here and there. It’s a work in progress, that’s what it is. It’s going to take time as the players go from one manager and the details he wanted and I have a little bit of a tweak. It will improve as time goes on.”On Pogba, he added: “It was great to see him score two goals and he has created the goals last week at Cardiff, and now he scores them himself, so he will be even better for getting two lots of 90 minutes now and he will be fitter and fitter and improving with the team. We looked tired towards the end and now it is important over the next two or three days that we recover and get ready for Bournemouth.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
