Photography] Last night, Adam Deitch of Lettuce and Break Science fame tore up Cervantes’ Other Side in Denver, Colorado, with a special DJ set for the venue’s weekly electronic series with Euphonic Conceptions dubbed Re:Search Wednesdays. This week, Re:Search Wednesdays was a particularly massive dual-venue affair, also tapping Jaw Gems, Ganz, Um.., Mikey Thunder, and JuBee for the lineup and expanding into the larger, connected venue next door, Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom. In a surprise twist, for Deitch’s show-closing performance at Cervantes’ Other Side, the famed drummer and producer was joined by fellow bandmates from Lettuce and Break Science in addition to members from Jaw Gems and more, making for an all-star super jam to close out the night.GRiZ And Pretty Lights Surprise 400-Person Room In Denver By Sitting In With Supervision [Watch]Deitch’s performance started out as a more standard DJ set, with the Lettuce drummer on-stage solo and laying out laid-back, hip-hop–inspired beats to kick off his heater of a set. As the night progressed, a number of friends joined him on stage, with his performance eventually transforming into a massive super jam. Adam Deitch has previously called Jaw Gems “the future” and thinks that they “have the coolest sound in music,” and luckily, the boys from the Portland, Maine-based electronic live band Jaw Gems were already on hand for their own set earlier in the evening. With Deitch stationed behind the drum kit, members of Jaw Gems were also joined by Deitch’s Lettuce bandmates, bassist Erick “Jesus” Coomes and the Shady Horns, made up of trumpeter Eric “Benny” Bloom and Ryan Zoidis. Rounding out the crew was local Colorado rapper and singer JuBee, who also also serves as the host for Re:Search Wednesdays, and Deitch’s other-half in Break Science, keys player Borahm Lee.Lettuce Announces New Live Tribute Album To Miles Davis, Shares First TrackYou can check out videos of Adam Deitch’s DJ set and super jam last night at the intimate 400-person venue below.last_img read more

Phish Delivers 2nd 20+ Minute MSG “Chalkdust” Of 2017 On Night 2 Of New Year’s Run [Videos]

first_imgOn Friday night, Phish continued their big year at Madison Square Garden with the second performance of their second run at the Manhattan arena in 2017. The first, of course, was the Baker’s Dozen–their historic run of 13 shows over 17 summer days centered around nightly donut-flavored themes. We’re now halfway through New Year’s run, and so far the Phishmas festivities have had an entirely distinct feel from this summer. Maybe it’s the oppressively cold weather. Maybe it’s the “flavor”-less shows. Maybe it’s the fact that, with the fantastic-in-every-imaginable-way summer residency still so fresh in everyone’s mind, the bar has been set impossibly high for MSG Reprise 2017.To put in simply, these first two shows, while certainly not devoid of worthy highlights, are just not the same as the Baker’s Dozen. And that’s OK–if every show was “special,” then the truly special shows would just be drops in the ocean. Each of the songs played over this run’s first two nights was also played at this summer’s residency, and there’s been no reference to Phish’s summer spoils or the Baker’s Dozen “championship banner” that now looms large over the cavernous confines of The Garden. However, Chris Kuroda‘s new toys are clearly pulling focus to the jumbo-tron, casting colors along the ceiling and the crowd in a circle at half court. New Year’s looms, and lest we forget: this may not be the Baker’s Dozen anymore, but the Universe is still, most definitely, a donut, and it feels as though the stage is being set for a circular spectacle in the center of the Garden come the 31st. Maybe we’re not done with donuts in 2017 after all…Phish got the show on the road with a rare “Cavern” opener, marking just the second time the encore/closer staple has opened a show in the 3.0 era. After a clunky start, the A Picture of Nectar rocker provided an energy spike to start the night, Page McConnell asserting himself as the Chairman of the “Cavern” with jagged-edged funk organ jabs. Off to the races…Watch Phish’s show-opening “Cavern” below via LivePhish:“Blaze On” got the call in the two-spot, stretching out past 12 minutes with a Baker’s Dozen-reminiscent, slinky “cocktail lounge” groove, once again highlighted by Page. The call also ensured that the song won’t be a central piece of the New Year’s countdown for a third year in a row. After a long pause to discuss, the band queued up “555”, prompting a noticeable contingent to “make an escape when it arrived” and hit the bathrooms and the beer lines. Those who hustled were able to make it back for some more dark, dank Page and Mike Gordon-led groove toward the end of the song (which has still yet to truly break out of the box, despite feeling like a potential jam vehicle since its debut on Halloween 2013).Big Boat‘s Vida Blue-like “I Always Wanted It This Way” came next, followed by “Martian Monster”, letting the band (and Kuroda) take all their new tools a spin–from Star Wars droid-like bleeps, to grungy bass tones, to a brilliantly realized light show projected against the crowd behind the stage.After a notably long pause built significant suspense, the “Heavy Things” that followed didn’t feel like a particularly exciting choice. However, it was certainly well-played, and even featured a bonus “Leo” solo for the runaway Set One MVP (honorable mention: Mike’s pants). Another long pause followed, but this time it yielded a much more exciting choice: a run through the highly sought-after “Destiny Unbound”, which netted a bit of bouncing Type I improv. “Ocelot” slouched in next, reaching some strong guitar peaks from Trey Anastasio as McConnell and Gordon continued to shoulder much of the heavy lifting. A relatively conservative, fun-as-usual “Walls of the Cave” brought set one to a close, bookending the set with geological references.The first frame on night two was a mixed bag. There was a lot to like in terms of sonic tone, though the song selection gave the set an unfortunately stop-start feel in terms of crowd energy. But hey, that’s how it goes. They can’t all be perfect. On to set two…After returning to the stage and easing into an ambiguous pulse, the band dropped into “Sand”. The funky vehicle got a decent dose of dark jamming, but wound up serving as a mere appetizer to the real improvisational centerpiece of the show, “Chalkdust Torture”. The 20+ minute jaunt through the classic Phish anthem had a bit of everything, from big white-light Trey peaks, to meaty Mike drops, to Martian Monster-like swells. The jam is surely worth a re-listen, and will no doubt be compared to the other top-notch 2017 MSG “Chalkdust Torture”, for the foreseeable an unfamiliar concept in the world of Phish.Watch the second set-opening “Sand” below via LivePhish:The unfinished “Chalkdust” eventually took a turn into a sincerely welcome, sexy “Ghost” jam. A Mike-led groove pushed through into sunny major key improv before breaking down into atonal engine revs and 3/4-capacity Mike bombs draped in a pool of purples and greens from CK5.Just as the jam was beginning to settle in, Trey pulled the ol’ ripcord, kicking into “Backwards Down The Number Line”. The Joy tune gets some flack from fans for its ability to take the wind out of a jam’s sails late in a set, and you could nearly hear the collective exhale as the tune did just that. However, as is the case with most “Number Lines”, any early-song whining was silenced by the soaring Type-1 jam that came out of it. A quick run through “Simple” came next, giving the crowd a chance to scream for the grand skyscrapers that surround the venue, before a particularly dark, evil, melt-y “Split Open And Melt” brought the set to a close. A typically-energetic “Julius” served as the encore, officially sending New Year’s Run into “halftime.”People will surely have differing opinions about this show. This particular fan felt that it took a step back, momentum-wise, from night one. But that’s not to say there wasn’t plenty of fine Phish served at the Garden on night 2. “Blaze On”, “I Always Wanted It This Way”, “Martian Monster”, “Ocelot”, “Sand” > “Chalkdust” > “Ghost” and “Split” are all worth revisiting. That’s just how it goes with 2017 Phish. With the thoroughly baffling display they put on at the Garden throughout their summer residency, expectations are at an all time high. And while some shows, inherently, will have to fall to the bottom of the pile, the fact that many people preferred this show to night 1 is a testament to the historically high level of play we’re experiencing from Phish in 2017.Two more shows to go.

BSNL Best in Voice Quality, Jio and Vodafone Tie for Second, Airtel Third in TRAI My Call User Data

first_img– Advertisement – The data makes a distinction between indoor, outdoor, and travelling call quality. While the indoor and outdoor call quality ratings for the four TSPs are largely comparable, BSNL scores big on call quality delivered while travelling with a user rating of 4.4, over Airtel’s 3.3 and Jio’s 3.2. The data is also mapped for each state and can be viewed individually for each TSP for the last four months.The overall call quality experienced by users in all states and across all TSPs raises some concerns. The user feedback samples say that only 60 percent of the calls were satisfactory, while 26 percent had poor voice quality and about 14 percent of calls were dropped.Which are the best truly wireless earphones under Rs. 10,000? We discussed this on Orbital, our weekly technology podcast, which you can subscribe to via Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, or RSS, download the episode, or just hit the play button below. BSNL has the highest rating for voice quality over calls, Reliance Jio and Vodafone tie for the second spot, and Airtel is third, according to user feedback generated through the My Call app and published on the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) website. TRAI periodically updates this user data — first published on its website in December 2017 — that rates popular telecom service providers (TSP) between 1 and 5 for the call quality experience they deliver across the country. Although Vodafone and Idea have merged to become Vodafone Idea (Vi), the data still makes a distinction and ranks Idea separately in the fourth spot.As per the [data updated](https://trai.gov.in/mycall-dashboard) on November 5 on the TRAI website, BSNL has a cumulative user feedback rating for voice quality over calls of 3.4/5, which is calculated for a total number of 2,014 samples. Reliance Jio and Vodafone are tied for a rating of 3.3. It’s important to note that while Jio has a sample size of 10,292, Vodafone has a much smaller sample size of 3,408. Airtel with 9,520 feedback samples gets a rating of 3.0 and Idea with just 977 samples is rated at 2.9.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Jamaica National Bank launched

first_imgEarl Jarrett discusses opening of JN Bank After some eight years of planning and negotiation, Jamaica National Bank (JN Bank) began operation in Kingston, Jamaica on February 1. The bank, the result of the reorganization of Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS), is Jamaica’s newest and seventh commercial bank, but the only one to be owned by its members who are also members of the Jamaica National Building Society.The bank is the nation’s third largest with announced assets of $180 billion and savings of $10 billion.JN Bank’s managing director is Maureen Hayden-Cater who said the bank’s customers can look forward to special banking packages and new features that will position the bank to increase its competitiveness in the already competitive commercial banking sector.  She said the bank is anxious to serve its customers and provide the services that members of the Building Society had been seeking for the past several years.   JNBS has over half-a-million members including Jamaicans in the Diaspora who are now customers of JN Bank. The financial institution has members in Jamaican communities in the United States. Canada and the United Kingdom.Already having a extensive nationwide networks through the building society the services of the bank will extend to 34 locations, including 25 branches and nine Money Shops.Earl Jarrett, general manager of JN Group of which JN Bank is a subsidiary, said one of the new bank’s objective is to “deliver the greatest level of customer service” and offer banking fees that are lower than the those offered by other of Jamaica’s commercial bank.A potential pool of new customers for the bank are government employees. Now that JNBS is operating as a commercial bank, these employees can open accounts and deposit their salary checks with the bank. Public sector regulations dictate that the salaries of public sector employees can only be deposited with commercial banks.The Jamaica National Building Society was founded in 1864, as the Westmoreland Building Society. After a series of mergers, it emerged as the Jamaica National Building Society in 1970, and now becomes one of Jamaica’s largest commercial banks.last_img read more

MLB trade rumors: Brewers ‘eyeballing’ Tigers’ Matt Boyd

first_imgDetroit has reportedly made several players available in the market including Boyd and outfielder Nicholas Castellanos among others, and at this point, Boyd might actually be the best starting pitcher who could be traded.Let us explain first, because there are bigger names out there than Boyd. Giants ace Madison Bumgarner could be dealt as could Rangers surprise lefty Mike Minor and Blue Jays starters Marcus Stroman and Aaron Sanchez. Related News MLB trade rumors: Yankees’ Brian Cashman would do ‘whatever it takes’ to land Max Scherzer MLB trade rumors: White Sox may want to add controllable starter The Brewers have been connected to a potential starting pitcher in the trade market.Milwaukee has been “eyeballing” Tigers lefty Matt Boyd, according to The Athletic.center_img But Boyd has something those guys really don’t have: he has proven he can post massive strikeout numbers and a good ERA in a day in age where strikeouts are absolutely paramount to postseason success.As Astros ace Justin Verlander said earlier this week, the game used to be about missing barrels, but today it’s about missing the bat entirely.Boyd has done that this year posting 118 strikeouts in 94 2/3 innings pitched. He is seventh in MLB in strikeouts and sixth in K/9 at 11.21. Having a pitcher like that in the playoffs is absolutely vital.And the Brewers could certainly use him as Brandon Woodruff and Zach Davies have been good this year but Corbin Burnes and Freddy Peralta have been demoted to the bullpen and Jimmy Nelson is still working his way back from injury.The addition of Boyd would be great for Milwaukee, the question simply becomes: at what cost? The Tigers are apparently not going to give up Boyd for nothing as he has three years of team control left, so what would the Brewers have to give up to get him? It might take a guy like Corey Ray who was a first-round pick for Milwaukee a few years ago, or even a guy like Burnes who still has value in the trade market and would give a team a more MLB-ready player.The fact is though the Brewers have needed real help in their starting rotation for a couple of years now and general manager David Stearns watched his former organization win a World Series by adding Verlander in a trade at the non-waiver deadline in 2017.He has seen what a deal can do, now it’s just a question of whether he’ll give up what it takes to get a deal done.last_img read more

TAOISEACH DEFENDS APPOINTMENT OF SEANAD HOPEFUL McNULTY

first_imgKilcar man and FG Seanad candidate John McNulty.TAOISEACH Enda Kenny has defended a Donegal businessman on his appointment to a semi-state museums board so he can run for a seat in the Seanad.John McNulty has been at the centre of a political storm all week.“It is the right of the leader of the day to decide who is nominated. I have to decide who should be nominated. I have to verify all the nominations of all the candidates for General Elections and for the Seanad. The process is one Fine Gael has always followed,” said Mr Kenny on a trip to America. Mr Kenny added: “I hope that John McNulty will prove to be an outstanding Senator. He is a young man with considerable energy and potential. He is involved in a lot of different activities in an area that needs every help it can get. Where obviously rural Ireland needs every assistance it can get.”Mr Kenny also rejected an argument the appointment should have been given to a woman.“Well I saw some commentary about this about gender balance. The two candidates in the Dail by elections, Cait Keane and Maura Hopkins, speak for themselves and are well able to speak for themselves and hopefully will win those elections,” he said.TAOISEACH DEFENDS APPOINTMENT OF SEANAD HOPEFUL McNULTY was last modified: September 25th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Fine Gaeljohn mccolgan financial adviceSeanadlast_img read more
