first_imgmoe. has been on a tear during their recent fall tour run, playing night after night of power-packed jam performances. Riding the wave of musical energy, moe. took to their hometown of Buffalo, NY, playing the first of two sold-out shows at the Town Ballroom in style.Recently, moe. performed a full set tribute to Pink Floyd at the Peach Festival (listen here), and has since been working their songs into setlists throughout this fall tour. We’ve seen renditions of “Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2” and “Fearless” thus far, but last night’s version of “Comfortably Numb” might take the cake. Chuck Garvey plays his heart out during the guitar solo, recreating the David Gilmour melody with a tenacity.Fortunately there’s full fan-shot video of the cover for us to enjoy. Check it out below, courtesy of Nathan Wiseman.Of course, “Comfortably Numb” was only one of many, many highlights from the whole show. It was one of only two covers last night, as moe. focused on their originals and the improvisation within them. With big versions of “Buster” and “meat.,” not to mention the encore of Frank Zappa’s “Cosmik Debris,” this night was loaded with high-energy grooves from moe.Check out the band’s full setlist, below.Setlist: moe. at Town Ballroom, Buffalo, NY – 10/1/16I: Rainshine, Jazz Wank > Buster > Lazarus > George > Comfortably Numb > BusterII: Lost Along The Way, Blond Hair And Blue Eyes, meat. > Akimbo > Silver Sun > Seat Of My Pants > Meat.Encore: Cosmik Debris[Photo via Tara Gracer Photography from Chicago, IL]last_img read more

Ben Platt to Lead B’way Transfer of Dear Evan Hansen

first_img Next year’s Tony race just heated up! As widely expected, Ben Platt will reprise his Obie-winning performance in the title role in the previously reported Broadway transfer of Dear Evan Hansen. Directed by Michael Greif, the buzzy new musical is set to begin previews in November and officially open on December 4 at the Belasco Theatre.With a book by Steven Levenson and score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, Dear Evan Hansen had its world premiere at Arena Stage, Washington D.C., last year and recently concluded its New York debut at off-Broadway’s Second Stage.The Book of Mormon and Pitch Perfect alum Platt, who led the world and New York premieres of the musical, will be joined by his Second Stage co-stars Laura Dreyfuss (Once) as Zoe, Rachel Bay Jones (Pippin) as Heidi, Tony nominee Jennifer Laura Thompson (Urinetown) as Cynthia, Mike Faist (Newsies The Musical) as Connor, Will Roland (Broadway debut) as Jared and Kristolyn Lloyd (Broadway debut) as Alana. Emmy winner Michael Park (As the World Turns), who originated the role of Larry Murphy at Arena Stage, returns for the Broadway production, replacing John Dossett.The show follows outsider Evan Hansen, who feels invisible to his peers, his crush and his own mother. A letter he writes leads to an incident with a classmate, a series of lies and an entire community movement that catapults Evan into the spotlight. As the momentum builds and stakes rise, he struggles to hold onto his secret without jeopardizing his relationship with the ones he holds close.The production will feature choreography by Danny Mefford, scenic design by David Korins, projection design by Peter Nigrini, lighting design by Japhy Weideman, costume design by Emily Rebholz and sound design by Nevin Steinberg. Music supervision, orchestrations and additional arrangements are by Alex Lacamoire, with musical direction by Ben Cohn.

Confirmed Elk Sighting in South Carolina Upstate

first_imgThough native and once abundant in the South Carolina Upstate, elk have been completely absent from the area since early colonial times.That changed recently when a lone bull elk was spotted wandering through northern Pickens County, not far from the Foothills Trail and the Eastatoe Heritage Preserve.“This is a historic moment that some of us knew would eventually come,” noted outdoorsman and Pickens County resident Dennis Chastain told the Greenville News. “This is the first wild elk to roam the woods and wild places in South Carolina since they disappeared in the early 1700’s.”According to witnesses, many of whom posted images and videos of the elk on social media, the animal does not seem to be wary of humans.Some are speculating that the elk has been displaced from the well known Cataloochee Valley herd in the nearby Smoky Mountains of North Carolina.Thanks to the work of Chastain and others through a conservation group called the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, it is currently illegal to hunt or kill elk in the state of state of South Carolina.Related:last_img read more

Public urged to give input on Auckland high-rise brothel

first_imgNZ Herald 4 April 2012Public comment is being sought on a bid to build a 15-storey building, including a brothel, on the site of the demolished Palace Hotel, in Victoria St. This follows a decision by Auckland Council’s hearings committee to rescind its December decision to have an independent commissioner decide whether the public should have a say. The deadline for comment to the council is May 4 and a hearing of the resource consent bid could follow about five weeks later.….The committee said there was the “sensitivity of the people” to the proposed brothel activity. Opponents include Auckland’s Catholic leader, Bishop Pat Dunn. The committee said the council needed to consider the impact on the community in terms of nuisance or incompatibility with its surrounding precinct, including Federal St which has views of St Patrick’s Cathedral.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=10796525Making a submission: Any person may make a submission on the application.MORE DETAILS on making a Submission Send written submission to Auckland Council, Private Bag 92300, Auckland, 1142.  Submission form here: http://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/SiteCollectionDocuments/Form98SubmissionForm.pdfOnline Submission form: http://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/EN/BuildingPropertyConsents/ResourceConsents/NotifiedApplicationsSubmissions/Pages/Resourceconsentsubmissionform.aspxNote that a copy of the submission must also be sent to the applicant at the address for service stated above as soon as reasonably practicable.
