Spafford To Play NOLA Halloween Show; Here’s What They’ve Done In The Past

first_img[Audio: Grout]2014While the past two years have seen Spafford performing at Phoenix’s Last Exit Live, in 2014, Spafford hit the Orpheum Theater in Flagstaff, Arizona, for a special Halloween show following a Halloween-less 2013. 2014’s Halloween performance saw six cover debuts during the particularly cover-heavy set—the band only played a handful of originals, with “Weasel” working its way across the set plus lone renditions of “Leave The Light On”, “Electric Taco Stand”, and the show-closing “Walls.” Opening up with John Carpenter’s “Halloween Theme”, the band then moved through Sneaker Pimps’ “Six Underground” before landing in the triumphant and ever-crowd pleasing Legend of Zelda theme. After rotating across the Zelda and Halloween theme plus “Weasel”, the group also dropped renditions of Emerson, Lake, & Palmer’s “Lucky Man”, Don Cheek’s “Spell Yourself”, and Harry Belafonte’s “Banna Boat Song” and “Jump In The Line” before returning with the encore opening cover of Phish’s “Ghost.”Setlist: Spafford | Orpheum Theater| Flagstaff, AZ | 10/31/2014Set: Halloween Theme($) > Six Underground([email protected]) > Legend of Zelda($) > Weasel > Halloween Theme > Weasel > Legend of Zelda > Weasel, Leave The Light On, Lucky Man($#) > Electric Taco Stand, Spell Yourself($+), Banana Boat Song(!) > Jump In The Line(!)Encore – Ghost($&) > Walls$ – First Time [email protected] – Sneaker Pimps cover# – Emerson, Lake & Palmer cover+ – Don Cheek cover! – Harry Belafonte cover& – Phish cover [Video: AZ Dead]Setlist: Spafford | Last Exit Live | Phoenix, AZ | 10/31/2015Set One: My Heart Will Go On [ 1 ] > Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand [ 2 ] > Walk On The Wild Side [ 3 ] > Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand > All My Friends > Bee Jam > Backdoor Funk, Seven, PeopleSet Two: Banana Boat Song > Jump In The Line, Weasel > Red’s Jam > Weasel, Creep [ 4 ] > All In > My Heart Will Go On > All In > My Heart Will Go On > All InEncore: Home Sweet Home [ 5 ][ 1 ]: Celine Dion cover; [ 2 ]: Primitive Radio Gods cover; [ 3 ]: Lou Reed cover; [ 4 ]: Stone Temple Pilots cover; [ 5 ]: Motley Crüe cover [Audio: Grout]2015In 2015, Spafford again debuted numerous tunes uncharacteristic for the band, opening the show with a string of three covers to get fans in the proper Halloween spirit. Starting off a hilarious crowd-pleasing rendition of Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On”, the band jammed the beloved tune made famous from Titanic into Primitive Radio Gods’ “Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand.” This cover then moved into a fairly quick rendition of Lou Reed’s “Walk On The Wild Side” before returning to the group returned to the Primitive Radio Gods’ cover, giving it the full treatment with an extended jam clocking in at over ten minutes. The night also saw an appearance of Stone Temple Pilots’ “Creep” during the second set as well as an encore of Motley Crüe’s “Home Sweet Home”, giving a nod to their triumphant return to their hometown.   2016Last year, Spafford debuted five new tunes during their 80’s-themed Halloween show (technically 10/29) at Last Exit Live in their hometown of Phoenix, Arizona. Opening the show with the Ghostbusters theme song, the group invited saxophonist Mike Cunningham to join the band on set-closing renditions of the Herbie Hancock’s “Cantaloupe Island” and Todd Rundgren’s “Bang On The Drum All Day.” The group also managed to work in covers of Green Day’s “Longview” and Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love” among more traditional numbers from their catalog during the night’s two sets, before fully closing out the night with an encore that saw “Leave The Light On” segue into a triumphant return to the show-opening Ghostbusters theme.Setlist: Spafford | Last Exit Live | Phoenix, AZ | 10/29/2016Set One: Ghostbusters [ 1 ] > Todd’s Tots, Ain’t That Wrong, Longview [ 2 ], Backdoor Funk, Cantaloupe Island [ 3 ]Set Two: Tainted Love [ 4 ], The Reprise > Salamander Song, America > Galisteo Way > Dis Go In 5? > Galisteo Way, Bang The Drum All Day [ 5 ]Encore: Leave The Light On > Ghostbusters[ 1 ]: First Time Played; [ 2 ]: First Time Played; [ 3 ]: With: Mike Cunningham, First Time Played; [ 4 ]: First Time Played; [ 5 ]: With: Mike Cunningham, First Time Played [Audio: Jordan Fairless] With Halloween just around the corner, Spafford fans are getting amped on what surprises the beloved holiday may hold this year. This year, the Arizona quartet will be hitting New Orleans on Halloween night for a special performance at Parish @ House of Blues along with friends and supporting act Southern Avenue. Spafford has become known for their legendary jam-fueled celebrations on the spooky holiday, with the group often debuting zany, out-of-left-field covers.Spafford Announces Three-Night New Year’s Eve RunTo get excited about Spafford’s upcoming Halloween rager, let’s take a look at what special moments the band has put together during Halloweens past. You can swoop tickets to Spafford’s upcoming Halloween show here. [Audio: Troy Mustachio]2012In 2013, the band skipped Halloween. However, 2014 and 2012 more than made up for the gap in spooky festivities. Looking back over the Halloween setlists from past years, even as Spafford was coming up and not the nationally recognized rising-star jam act they are today, the band was always attentive to give fans a special performance in honor of Halloween. In 2012, the group covered the Grateful Dead’s eerie disco hit “Feel Like A Stranger” and Harry Belafonte’s “Banana Boat Song” and “Jump In The Line” (a combo that also closed the set for Halloween of 2014) during the first set. An epic show-opening “Weasel” sandwich opened set two, which saw a cover of Doug Funnie’s “Bangin’ on a Trash Can” from Nickelodeon’s Doug, as well as covers of The Refreshments’ “Banditos”, Phish’s “Wolfman’s Brother” and “Waste”, and Men At Work’s “Down Under”, plus a rendition of “Funkadelic” housing teases of Phish’s “First Tube”,“Weasel” featuring “Bangin’ On A Trash Can” from DougSetlist: Spafford | Lyzzard’s Lounge | Prescott, AZ | 10/27/2012Set One: Electric Taco Stand, All My Friends > Bee Jam > Feel Like A Stranger*, Ain’t That Wrong, Walls, Banana Boat Song#, Jump In The Line#Set Two: Weasel > Bangin’ on a Trash Can $ > Weasel, Funkadelic > In The Eyes Of Thieves, Banditos @, Wolfman’s Brother &> Down Under% > Waste &, Galisteo Way* – Grateful Dead cover; # – Harry Belafonte cover; $ – Doug Funnie cover; @ – The Refreshments cover; % – Men At Work cover; & – Phish Coverlast_img read more

The Argentine’s exasperation came to the fore on Thursday night as he did the post-match interview after Barcelona’s 2-1 defeat at home to Osasuna, which came on a night that Real Madrid became LaLiga Santander champions. “He’s a born winner, he doesn’t like to lose and it’s normal to get angry,” Alves told Catalunya Radio. “He wants to win every time, like me. “He’s been doing it for so long that you can tell when your team is giving [that feeling] and when it’s not. “That’s why he said it, he’s been at Barcelona for many years and he’s aware of what he needs to be able to win and aspire to great things. “He sees, what I feel, and that’s a lack of support. “Messi was the main course, but we were the perfect ingredients [in the past].Advertisementcenter_img Promoted Content7 Universities In The World With The Highest Market ValueWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?Best Car Manufacturers In The World5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksWho’s The Best Car Manufacturer Of All Time?The Models Of Paintings Whom The Artists Were Madly In Love With2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This Year6 Unforgettable Shows From The 90s That Need To Make A ComebackBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeThis Guy Photoshopped Himself Into Celeb Pics And It’s HystericalThe 10 Best Secondary Education Systems In The Worldlast_img read more

Syracuse sweeps weekend series behind Bellefontaine’s 2 goals

first_img Published on October 20, 2018 at 10:32 pm Contact Danny: [email protected] | @DannyEmerman A night after outlasting Lindenwood in overtime for its first win of the season, SU (2-3-0, 2-2-0 College Hockey America) completed the weekend series sweep with a decisive 6-3 win in which it had the shots on goal advantage of 34 to 20. Freshman forward Lauren Bellefontaine led the Orange with two goals and an assist in the victory over Lindenwood University (1-5-0, 0-2-0).Most of the game’s scoring came in the first period. Eight minutes into the game, sophomore defenseman Jessica DiGirolamo put the Orange on the board. She capitalized seven seconds into a power-play with her third goal of the year. DiGirolamo leads SU in points with six—three goals and three assists.Two minutes later, fifth-year senior Dakota Derrer made it 2-0 by scoring her first goal of the season.Syracuse’s lead was short-lived. Lindenwood responded with three minutes left in the first period with a goal from Sierra Burt and then another from Hannah Alt on a power-play.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter a power-play goal from Emma Polaski, her third of the season, SU took a 3-2 lead into the first intermission.In the second period, the Orange pulled away. SU killed two power-plays before extending its lead to 4-2 with a goal from Bellefontaine. Later in the period, SU found its groove and attempted 13 shots in a row before Bellefontaine found the nylon again for her second goal of the night, giving SU a 5-2 cushion.After the second period, SU held a 28-12 advantage in shots on goal. Lindenwood’s goal 14 minutes into the final period made it 5-3, but could not jump-start a serious comeback effort for the Lions. SU junior Anonda Hoppner scored a short-handed empty-net goal late in the third period to secure the victory. The Orange’s goaltending situation did not get any clearer, as Welch recorded 17 saves the night after Ady Cohen allowed four goals on 12 shots. Cohen appeared to have the edge in the positional battle after a strong performance against Mercyhurst in her first career start last Saturday. Syracuse head coach Paul Flanagan expects one goalie to “emerge,” but plans to play both Welch and Cohen meaningful minutes. It is unclear who Flanagan will give the nod to Tuesday when the Orange travel to Cornell University.   Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Trinidad’s Rowley to lead delegation to Europe and North America

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC – Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley leaves Trinidad on Sunday for visits to Europe and North America where he is expected to sign a new agreement with the oil company, Shell.Meeting major oil companies Rowley, speaking at the end of the weekly Cabinet meeting on Thursday, said that during the 10-day trip he would be heading a government delegation to the headquarters of the major oil companies operating here.He said he had been invited to Holland for talks with Shell and would also be visiting London for discussions with BP Oil Corporation. He said while in London he would also be meeting with Trinidad and Tobago nationals.Rowley said his visit to Texas in the United States would allow the delegation to meet Shell’s technical teams.Rowley reminded reporters that his administration had faced “challenging negotiations” with all contributors to oil and gas to the economy especially as some contracts, including long-term contracts, had come to an end.He said it was decided that both government and the companies would establish an empowered negotiation team who can speak for each interest and authorized to make decisions.“So, we’ve had that going on for quite some time and we are not in a position to tell you the final outcome of that because there are still some minor points to be tied up. But we are at a stage now where I think we have concluded those negotiations and I dare say satisfactorily,” he said, adding that the visit to Holland would allow for Trinidad and Tobago to sign an agreement with Shell from the outcome of negotiations as Cabinet has just approved the outcome.BPTT/Shell consortiumAsked about the three bids out of six received for the shallow-water bid round this week, and all from one bidder – a BPTT/Shell consortium– Rowley said “there has been some combining of effort in our area.” He said initially BP was off the east coast and then, when BP got involved with BHP, BHP became the major partner on the east coast with BP as junior partner. He noted BP was now focusing on the southern basin while Shell has consolidated and become the major player.“Now with the bid round where before you would have Shell looking for its own acreage and BP looking for its own acreage but they aren’t enemies. They’re in the same business,” he told reporters, adding the companies now talk to one another.“Which is a good thing for Trinidad and Tobago, we get the best of both companies. And some acreage was taken up and are focused on that side of it,” he said.last_img read more
