Primus, Claypool Lennon & Duo De Twang Join Forces For New Year’s Celebration

first_imgEdit this setlist | More Primus setlists Les Claypool fans were in luck this year, as their favorite bassist rang in the New Year with three of his prized projects at the Fox Theater in Oakland, CA: Les Claypool’s Duo de Twang, The Claypool Lennon Delirium and Primus, who were using the occasion to also celebrate their 25th anniversary. Each band is somehow both unique and uniquely Claypool, highlighting the many influences to his style in a truly celebratory manner.For the Americana side, the opening set from Duo de Twang proved to be a perfect display. The Duo de Twang features Claypool alongside his longtime collaborator and high school friend, Bryan Kehoe, playing acoustically-inspired covers of staple songs. Next up was The Claypool Lennon Delirium, who threw down a psychedelic set at the tail end of an incredible debut year for them. The collaboration between Claypool and Sean Lennon produced one of the best albums of 2016, The Monolith of Phobos, and that music has only come to life in the live setting. CLD played songs from the new album, as well as some choice covers including King Crimson’s “In The Court Of The Crimson King”.Claypool Lennon’s cover of “In The Court Of The Crimson King” can be seen below.But of course, the heart of Claypool’s musicianship stems from Primus, the trio with guitarist Larry LaLonde and drummer Tim Alexander. With a totally unique sound that’s part jam, rock, metal, jazz and funk, Primus came out swinging to usher Oakland fans into the New Year. The band played a number of their well known tunes, including “John the Fisherman,” “Here Comes The Bastards,” “Jerry Was A Race Car Driver,” “My Name Is Mud” and more, delighting their longtime fans with a killer set. They encored with “Southbound Pachyderm” as well, ending the night with a remarkable finale.You can watch a couple of videos from Primus, including their New Year’s countdown into “Man on the Silver Mountain”, and see the full setlist, below.Setlist: Duo de Twang | Fox Theater | Oakland, CA | 12/31/16Set: Amos Moses, Bridge Came Tumbling Down, Booneville Stomp, Buzzrds of Green Hill, Jerry Was A Race Car DriverSetlist: The Claypool Lennon Delirium | Fox Theater | Oakland, CA | 12/31/16Set: There’s No Underwear In Space, Astronomy Domine, Cricket and the Genie (Movements I & II), Breath of a Salesman, The Monolith of Phobos, Cosmic Highway*, In the Court of the Crimson King, Boomerang Baby, Mr. Wright, Boris the Spider, Tomorrow Never Knows* = w/ Skeriklast_img read more

Dodgers trade A.J. Ellis for Carloz Ruiz of Philadelphia

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES >> There was no team meeting to announce the trade Thursday, just a group of forlorn men learning one by one that the longest tenured player in the Dodgers clubhouse had been traded.After A.J. Ellis learned he was going to the Philadelphia Phillies in a swap of backup catchers for Carlos Ruiz, he called his wife, then his agent, then texted his best friend, Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw.“I had him come out and meet me here in the dugout,” Ellis said. “Not much was said. We just kind of sat here together. Baseball’s funny. Anything can happen in the future, but to know that in almost all likelihood I’ll never get to catch (Kershaw) again is without a doubt the most devastating thing that I’m feeling right now.”• VIDEO: A.J. Ellis responds to trade The Dodgers also sent the Phillies minor league pitcher Tommy Bergjans and either cash or a player to be named later along with Ellis.Ruiz’s contract includes a club option for $4.5 million next season. The Dodgers can also buy out his contract for $500,000. He’s expected to join the team Friday.Ellis became a Dodger in the 18th round of the 2003 amateur draft, a summer crop that yielded Matt Kemp and Chad Billingsley as well. He had never been traded before Thursday. He is due to become a free agent for the first time after the season.“This is really, really hard,” Ellis said, his eyes taking one last scan of Dodger Stadium in the afternoon. “It’s the greatest office in America. To not be able to call it home anymore, it’s really tough. It’s amazing how fast things can change. I was just at the park shooting basketball with my kid. Text message an hour later can move your life. Gotta pick things up. It’s hard for me; I can’t even imagine it’s even doubly hard for my wife and kids.”The deafening silence of a first-place clubhouse spoke more than any teammate could. That Ellis had only played 53 of the Dodgers’ first 127 games this season seemed to matter little.“I almost cried in front of him, I just didn’t want to show my emotion,” Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen said. “This is my 12th year, this is his 14th year in the organization. We grew up together. We experienced a lot of fun stuff together. Plus he helped me a lot too.”Ellis was among the first players Dodgers manager Dave Roberts called when he took the job last winter. Ever since, he said, Ellis helped him grow as a first-year manager.“There were different parts of the game that he challenged me on and asked me, as far as running a clubhouse, running a team, game management. There’s a lot of conversations we had that helped me. We had a lot of great conversations.“I know that being around him, I was better for it.”• VIDEO: Andrew Friedman explains Ellis trade• VIDEO: Dave Roberts on Ellis tradecenter_img By the time he sat in the dugout to meet with reporters, Ellis said he was “almost out of tears.” While Ellis and Kershaw spent a little more time in Los Angeles together away from the ballpark, Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman laid bare the cold facts behind the trade.Ellis is 35 years old and had a .194 batting average in limited playing time. While he was a serviceable hitter against left-handed pitchers a year ago, batting .260, Ellis was hitting .241 against lefties this year with a .616 on-base plus slugging percentage (OPS).Ruiz is 37, but his .830 OPS against lefties ought to help a Dodgers squad that had struggled to hit southpaws all season. Their .663 OPS against left-handers ranks 13th in the National League.“A great field general behind the plate,” Friedman said of Ruiz. “Works extremely well with pitchers. Very gifted defensively. What he brings on the offensive side of the game is something we felt fit our group really well in terms of his ability to hit left-handed pitching. The quality of the at-bat. Just the grinder type approach in the batter’s box that we felt like really helped lengthen our lineup.”Ruiz, the second-longest tenured player on the Phillies’ roster, was placed on waivers a few days ago and eventually cleared. Friedman said the move had been discussed internally before Thursday, but only within the front office. He didn’t want to mention anything to Kershaw, or anyone in the clubhouse, because he wanted “for (Ellis) to hear it from us and not a teammate.”last_img read more

Councillors, Poor Relief Officers in Westmoreland Get Tablet Computers

first_img Councillors and Poor Relief Officers in Westmoreland have been provided with modern technology to enable them to more effectively carry out their work.Minister of Local Government and Community Development, Hon. Desmond McKenzie, handed over 13 tablet computers to the Councillors, including Mayor of Savanna-la-Mar, Bertel Moore, during a special sitting of the Westmoreland Municipal Corporation on November 9.He encouraged the Councillors to embrace the technology, noting that the tablets would enable them to reduce the use of paper and keep pace with their counterparts in other technologically savvy countries.Mr. McKenzie also presented the Poor Relief Department with a computer and printer, and gave each of the four officers a tablet computer.“Gone are the days when a Poor Relief Officer goes out there and walks with an exercise book. The tablets will allow the officers to be able to work in a way that all they need to do is touch a button, scroll and find the information of the persons that they are working with,” he pointed out.Meanwhile, the Minister informed that new living quarters will be built for the matron of the Savanna-la-Mar Infirmary.“The Ministry will be coordinating with the superintendent and the building department to come up with the new design for the construction of the new matron quarters at the infirmary,” he said.He noted that once the drawings and costs are submitted, efforts will be made next year to obtain the resources from the Equalisation Fund and from property taxes to build the new lodgings.The Minister urged the Councillors to reinforce their commitment towards good governance, and to work with the Poor Relief Officers to safeguard the welfare of the less fortunate in their communities.
