Thievery Corporation Celebrates 20 Years With Astounding Red Rocks Performance

Posted on by

first_imgIn 1996, two Washington DC area DJs named Rob Garza and Eric Hilton decided to team up and create music together. Now, more than twenty years later, their glorious collective known as Thievery Corporation has performed the world over, releasing countless hits steeped in rich melancholic grooves. With an ever-present Brazilian influence in their music, Thievery Corporation is Garza and Hilton at the foundation, with a tight-knit backing band and an awesome collection of rotating vocalists that made their presence felt throughout the career-spanning performance.When a band such as TC celebrates its 20th anniversary, there are few places as fitting as Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The Morrison, CO venue has played host to Thievery a grand total of seven times, dating back to 2010, but the performance held last Friday, May 13th certainly carried some extra weight. The show started with Late Night Radio and Emancipator Ensemble, the full-band project of acclaimed producer Emancipator. The live show kept people engaged, as Emancipator spun some of his classic tunes and material from the newer Seven Seas album. Read the review here.Thievery performed a full 22 song setlist, powered by a number of hits from the band’s lengthy career and one choice cover of Grateful Dead’s “Fire On The Mountain.” The set opened with The Richest Man In Babylon song “Heaven’s Gonna Burn Your Eyes,” and mixed classics from the band’s lengthy career. Material from the newest release, Saudade, came in the form of “Depth Of My Soul,” while the set featured a non-stop array of soulful grooves; the only way TC knows how to do it.Between Thievery Corporation’s uniquely addicting music and the sold-out crowd at one of the country’s most beautiful venues, its no surprise that this show was simply incredible. Take a look below at the full twenty-two career spanning songs performed throughout the night, including the finale of “Lebanese Blonde.”Check out a full gallery of images below, courtesy of Phierce Photo: Load remaining imageslast_img read more

Posted on by

first_imgLoad remaining images Photo: Vic Brazen Last night, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead wrapped up their third and final show with bassist Oteil Burbridge (Dead & Company), as regular bassist Dave Dreiwitz is currently on tour with Ween. Joe Russo’s Almost Dead with Oteil Burbridge kicked things off with a two-night run, Thursday and Friday, at Philadelphia’s Tower Theatre. The final show of the short run with Burbridge concluded Saturday night, at The Anthem in Washington, DC.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead opened up the first set with “Rubin and Cherise”, laying down some silky-smooth harmonies, before taking no time to move into “Eyes Of The World”. Joe Russo and Oteil Burbridge quickly found each other, allowing for Tom Hamilton and Scott Metzger to shoot it to the moon, bouncing back and forth off of each other’s guitar solos. The quintet kept things rolling as they worked through “Let It Grow”, before covering Donny Hathaway’s “Magnificent Sanctuary Band”. JRAD pushed on through a roaring rendition of “I Need A Miracle”, before raising the bar even higher, as they brought the first set to a close with “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider”.After giving fans a moment to collect themselves and take a breather, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead came back out to open their second set with “Good Lovin’”. Marco Benevento really took things away with his keyboard wizardry, as Russo rolled through his kit with his octopus-like movements. Jerry Garcia’s “Cats Under The Stars” followed “Good Lovin’”, with Hamilton firing off some sensational guitar licks, as the Anthem crowd cheered the band on. Bob Weir’s politically-driven “Throwing Stones” was next, before Oteil Burbridge led the five-piece through “High Time”, taking the lead on vocals. A massive “Terrapin Suite” brought the second set to a close, with the band firing off on all cylinders late into the night. Joe Russo’s Almost Dead came back out to encore “U.S. Blues” and “One More Saturday Night”, appropriately ending the Saturday night dance party on a high note.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead – “High Time” – 10/20/2018[Video: crg144]Next, the core members of Joe Russo’s Almost Dead will regroup to perform two sets at the Suwannee Hulaween pre-party on October 25th.

Odds & Ends: Josh Groban Eyes 2016 Broadway Bow & More

Posted on by

first_img Star Files Here’s a quick roundup of stories you may have missed today. Groban Eyes 2016 B’way BowWe admit it, we’ve been getting our hopes up for quite some time now, but it looks like Josh Groban really is coming to Broadway next year! “I have cleared the board and made it apparent that 2016 is the time for me to make that leap, “ the Grammy-nominated singer told AJC.com. “It’s the first time in my career that I’ve forced the issue and said, ‘This is what I want to do.’ If it doesn’t happen in 2016, then I’m just a chicken.” Groban’s previously said he’d like to star in something new, but he also has a long relationship with Chess, so he’ll apparently be having a cup of tea with its creator Tim Rice in London (presumably with a spot of milk). We look forward to having you on the Main Stem soon, Mr. Groban.Delay for Mrs Doubtfire Musical?It looks like our favorite nanny won’t be hitting the Great White Way in the near future. David Zippel, the lyricist on the previously reported stage adaptation of the hit 1993 film Mrs Doubtfire, has left the project. According to the New York Post, composer Alan Menken and book writer (and as we like to think if it, Broadway Mayor) Harvey Fierstein will remain with the tuner.Celia Keenan-Bolger, Glenn Fleshler & More Team UpBroadway alums Celia Keenan-Bolger, Glenn Fleshler, Frederick Weller and more have been tapped for a benefit reading of Tipping Points on September 28. Directed by Carolyn Cantor, the collection of world premiere, short plays by familiar names including Halley Feiffer, Paul Grellong, Winter Miller, Nilaja Sun and Austin Winsberg, will be performed at Symphony Space. There’ll also be a special reading by Sarah Ruhl from her book, 100 Essays I Don’t Have Time to Write. Proceeds from the Sweet Chaos Theater Project event will help fund home libraries for families living in low-income community housing in Harlem in association with Litworld.Watch Laura Benanti Get Fun, Feisty & FeministBroadway fave Laura Benanti has teamed up with her Nashville co-star Connie Britton to reveal all about the secret to Britton’s luscious locks…Sort of. As you would expect from Benanti, who wrote and directed the video, it’s hilarious—and packs a punch. Check it out below. #AskHerMore View Comments Laura Benanti Josh Grobanlast_img read more

Report Cites Failure to Act Against Abusers of Juveniles in Detention

Posted on by

first_imgProPublica is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative newsroom. Sign up for their newsletter. By Joaquin Sapien, ProPublicaLast week was momentous for those interested in the elusive goal of juvenile justice reform. On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that people serving mandatory life sentences for murders they committed as juveniles must be allowed to petition for new sentencing or parole hearings. The same day, President Obama issued a ban on solitary confinement for juveniles in the federal system, citing studies of lasting psychological damage linked to the practice.Amid the significant developments, it was easy to miss a Justice Department study released the following day. The report found that between 2007 and 2012, the rate of formal sex abuse allegations against guards and other staff in state juvenile justice facilities has doubled, even as the number of children entering those systems has dropped. The report, one of the largest of its kind, draws on data collected directly from the administrators at more than 1,400 state, local and private juvenile detention facilities.For more than a decade, the Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Statistics has conducted anonymous surveys of youngsters in custody. Those surveys have produced startling estimates: that some 10 percent of children in detention have reported sexual abuse by either staff or peers, often repeatedly, and often at the hands of female guards who victimize boys. Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Help us investigate: If you have experience with or information about sexual abuse in custody, email [email protected] stories: For more coverage, read ProPublica’s previous reporting on the Prison Rape Elimination Act, sexual abuse in juvenile detention, and systems of care for troubled youth. But many juvenile detention administrators have consistently downplayed the findings, suggesting children may have fabricated claims of abuse or misunderstood the survey. Even advocates and scholars recognized the limits of the data.The new report offers some additional support for the teens’ anonymous claims. It’s based largely on allegations filed directly by juveniles to the administrators who detain them. Some still might be false, prompted by an urge to retaliate against a targeted staffer, or to undermine a facility’s administration. But it’s widely accepted that juveniles put themselves at substantial risk by coming forward against alleged abusers, one of several reasons why experts attach additional significance to this particular iteration of the Justice Department’s work.“These latest findings on sexual abuse in detention are deeply troubling — but not at all surprising,” said Lovisa Stannow, executive director of Just Detention International, an inmate advocacy group that specializes in sexual abuse.In the vast majority of cases where youngsters formally report being abused, investigations done by facility administrators fail to support the claim. Advocates such as Stannow have long questioned the rigor and quality of those investigations. And they point to an incontrovertible truth the report lays bare: when investigations confirm that staff members sexually abused a youngster, the staff members too often receive no punishment beyond losing their jobs, if that. Only 36 percent of staff members found to have abused children, the report found, were referred to the authorities for possible criminal prosecution. Only 16 percent wound up arrested. And roughly 20 percent actually kept their jobs.“When staff who sexually abuse kids in their custody are allowed to get off scot-free and, in some cases, continue to be employed in the very facility where they committed the abuse, it’s a clear sign that the system is failing,” Stannow said. “We are talking about known perpetrators, adults who are typically employed in public facilities supported by our tax dollars. The lack of accountability described in the new BJS report is simply outrageous.”The report also found that more than half the victims of staff sexual misconduct, some younger than 12, receive no medical follow up care. Fewer than 8 percent of confirmed victims of staff sexual misconduct were tested for sexually transmitted disease.The report examined the paperwork involving 9,494 allegations of sexual abuse. Roughly 45 percent of the allegations were leveled at staff, the rest at other youngsters in the facilities.The data also reflect a trend previously reported by ProPublica: some 64 percent of the confirmed abuse allegations involved a female perpetrator. The Justice Department notes that in many of these incidents, the minor, typically male, “appeared to be willing.”American University law professor Brenda Smith, who has studied this phenomenon, said the phrase undermines the severity and impact of such abuse.“The danger of using that language is that you get into this no harm, no foul kind of characterization,” she said.  “The reality is that because so much of it involves boys, it continues to reify the abuse. It elevates the belief that because these are boys being molested by female staff, it’s not harmful. There is a sense that boys always want sex, even if there is a significant age difference and significant power difference between the adult and the child.”Allen Beck, a Justice Department statistician who co-authored the report, acknowledged Smith’s point, but defended his characterization of the dynamic.“It means there was no explicit coercion,” he said. “It can be coercive in the sense that there is a difference in power. So the youth might think that it’s consensual, but by law, it cannot be. It’s an abuse of the position.”Beck also noted that the rising rate of abuse allegations likely reflects growing awareness of sex abuse in detention and efforts to stop it.The reports are mandated by the Prison Rape Elimination Act, which has had a long, controversial path toward realization. As ProPublica has reported, Congress first passed the legislation in 2003, but it then took the Justice Department nearly 10 years to study the issue and release rules for prisons and juvenile detention centers to implement.last_img read more

Poverty rate rises in March as pandemic hits vulnerable communities

Posted on by

first_imgAround 1.63 million Indonesians fell into poverty in March compared with September last year as the COVID-19 pandemic took its toll on the poor across the country, Statistics Indonesia (BPS) announced on Wednesday.The poverty rate rose to 9.78 percent in March from 9.22 percent in September, BPS reported, as 26.42 million people were living below the poverty line as of March.“The COVID-19 pandemic is taking a great toll on economic activity and adversely affecting people’s livelihoods,” said BPS head Suhariyanto in a virtual press briefing on Wednesday. “This pandemic is hitting the public hard, especially poorer communities.” The job losses translate to losses in income and weaker consumer spending, threatening the country’s economy as more than half of its gross domestic product (GDP) comes from household spending.In line with the rising poverty rate, the Gini ratio, which reflects inequality, rose to 0.381 in March, from 0.380 in September last year, as the gap between the rich and the poor remained high amid the pandemic.According to data from the Finance Ministry, 70 percent of workers with monthly salaries up to Rp 1.8 million lost their income during the pandemic, while only 30 percent of workers with incomes up to Rp 7.2 million lost theirs, as the pandemic took a greater toll on low-income households.The government is allocating a Rp 695.2 trillion stimulus package to prevent greater economic fallout and to cushion the pandemic’s blow on poor communities by strengthening social safety net programs and the country’s healthcare system.Topics : The rise in staple prices played a huge role in the poverty rate, he went on to say, pointing to the rice price as the biggest factor, followed by cigarettes, poultry and instant noodles.The national poverty line is set at Rp 2.1 million (US$145.80) of income per family per month, with the highest poverty rate recorded in Papua with 26.6 percent of the total population and the lowest poverty rate was recorded in Bali (3.78 percent).The pandemic is ravaging the economy as the government expects 4 million people to fall below the poverty line this year, making for a total of 28 million poor in the nation, or around 10.6 percent of the population.Some 5.5 million people may lose their jobs this year, raising the number of total unemployed to 12.7 million people, according to estimates by National Development Planning Minister Suharso Monoarfa recently.last_img read more

Hong Kong police help #HKIndependence trend on Twitter

Posted on by

first_imgChina’s vociferously nationalist state-run tabloid Global Times picked up the same phrasing and tweeted to its 1.8 million followers.Hong Kong’s Twitter warriors were quick to pounce, many of them mocking the city’s police force for helping to make the phrase go viral.They pointed to the irony of police warning on Wednesday that writing online comments about Hong Kong independence could constitute inciting secession. “Oh HK police just created a new hashtag #HKIndependence, hope it doesn’t trend,” wrote one in a tweet, which soon racked up more than 5,000 likes and retweets each. @HongKongHermit, a popular account run by a foreign Hong Kong resident who is frequently caustic towards the city’s police, chipped in.”You do realize that you just created a #HKIndependence hashtag and are causing it to trend?” he wrote.”Congratulations, you just did more to “incite” and “promote secession” than some teens with some leaflets ever did. Let them go or arrest your social media manager.” Beijing imposed its national security law on Hong Kong last month in a bid to restore stability after last year’s huge pro-democracy protests. It targets four types of crime: subversion, secession, terrorism and colluding with foreign forces — with up to life in prison. Overnight certain political views became illegal, such as advocating independence or greater autonomy for Hong Kong. Topics :center_img As China moves to intimidate and punish anyone who voices support for Hong Kong independence, an unlikely source has inadvertently ignited a Twitter trending hashtag advocating just that –- the city’s police force.To the amusement of pro-democracy supporters online, Hong Kong police used #HKIndependence in a tweet on Wednesday night announcing the arrest of four students for online posts deemed a threat to China’s national security.”They were suspected of secession by advocating #HKIndependence. Investigation is underway,” the overnight tweet to the force’s 84,000 followers read.last_img read more

Van Gaal: Possession is key

Posted on by

first_imgLouis van Gaal hit out at his players for almost allowing Roma to break his 100 per cent record as Manchester United manager. Van Gaal made it two wins from two as United boss thanks to a 3-2 win over the Italian giants in the Colorado heat. Unlike in their 7-0 thrashing of the Los Angeles Galaxy, Van Gaal’s men were slow off the mark and Roma wasted numerous opportunities to go ahead. Wayne Rooney scored twice and Juan Mata also got on the score sheet with a stunning goal, but Roma fought back in the second half with two strikes – the first of which came from 60 yards. Van Gaal was annoyed with the way his team failed to close the game out after going 3-0 up, but he thinks the fact that the game took place in 30 degree heat, some 5280 feet above sea level, did not help his players. “I think we don’t play a good match,” Van Gaal said. “All my good passers failed today. I think it was because of the height and the air. “Mata, (Ander) Herrera and (Shinji) Kagawa these are the best passers (at the club), and everything went wrong. “In the second half we forgot to keep the ball. “When you are 3-0 ahead the only thing you have to do is keep the ball in possession and the opponent has to run and run and run. “We forgot to do that. We brought Roma by ourselves back into the match so I am pleased we have won, but it was not good.” Rooney collected the ball from Mata and curled a stunning shot over Lukasz Skorupski from 25 yards to put United ahead. The England striker then returned the favour, firing a 45-yard ball over the Roma defence to Mata, who killed the ball with his first touch before superbly lifting it over Skorupski. A clumsy foul by Mehdi Benatia on Danny Welbeck allowed Rooney to add his second from the penalty spot. Van Gaal was reluctant to single anyone out for praise, but he could not hide his admiration for Rooney’s performance. “The pass of Rooney to Mata was unbelievable,” said Van Gaal, who withdrew the England striker, along with eight others at half-time. Van Gaal was not so happy with Amos for letting in Miralem Pjanic’s 60-yard shot. Pjanic spotted Amos well off his line in the second half and punted a looping shot over the 24-year-old goalkeeper. When asked whether he regarded the goal as a wonder strike by Pjanic or an error on the part of his substitute, Van Gaal said with a smile: “What do you think? “I am nearly 63. When the ball is flying in the air for four seconds, I think I run 50 metres.” Roma coach Rudi Garcia was stunned by the 60-yard effort. “It was a world-class goal,” he said. “I am sure we will see it throughout (the) world. He probably had a training session yesterday with the Denver Broncos.” Van Gaal, meanwhile, played down suggestions that he does not see Wilfried Zaha as part of his first-team plans. Zaha is the only player in Van Gaal’s 26-man squad not to feature in this tour of the USA. But the former Holland boss says he has no issues with the forward, who was loaned to Cardiff last January. “I have a lot of players in (his) position,” Van Gaal added. “Our squad is not balanced. “Maybe Zaha will be picked because he is working good and hard, and is doing all I require and demand. There is no problem (with him).” Van Gaal and his squad fly to Washington DC on Sunday ahead of their next match in the International Champions Cup against Inter Milan, which takes place on Tuesday.
