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

It is three hinges and a pine slab away from being a closet. It is an excellent place to hide.That is where Julius Randle tucked himself away on Wednesday night following the Lakers’ 114-90 loss to the Thunder.The Lakers (15-29) expected to be stranded in Oklahoma City for at least three more hours after their flight crew failed to make it to the heartland. His feet resting on the bottom shelf of his locker, smartphone nestled in his hand, thumb at work, Randle was asked if he had the time to speak to reporters. He shook his head no.That Randle did not wish to speak Wednesday was not all that surprising, even though NBA rules dictate that players make themselves available after games. By now, Randle is used to being the Lakers’ scapegoat. Minutes earlier, Luke Walton had called out his team’s effort and their physicality, criticisms that could easily be deciphered as a challenge to their starting power forward.

That performance had come two nights after the first scoreless night of his career.Randle without inconsistency would be like Southern California without the beaches. It completes the experience. It is what sells fans on his potential and has frustrated each of his pro coaches.Two weeks after they lost by 37 points to the Thunder at Staples Center, the Lakers were similarly dispatched on Oklahoma City’s home floor.“They got into a nice rhythm in the first game just like they did this time,” Walton said. “Started letting Carmelo (Anthony) dance with the ball, get his rhythm shot, which is the exact opposite of what we want to do in our scouting report to defend him.”Anthony scored 27 points, while Adams added 21 to his healthy portion of rebounds. Russell Westbrook finished with 19 points, despite missing eight of his first nine shots and added seven assists and six rebounds.Paul George, who thirstily received Lakers fans passionate recruiting pitches 14 nights earlier, was held in check, scoring just 13 points on 14 shots.It was a war of attrition for the Lakers, as one player after the next joined Ball in the trainers’ room during the game.First, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope suffered a left Achilles strain in the second quarter and, after testing it at halftime, did not return. Then, Brandon Ingram tweaked the sprained left ankle that forced him to sit out Monday’s game in Memphis. Finally, Kuzma sprained a joint in his left hand.A team that left Los Angeles with a bare injury report six days earlier returns home with four players nursing injuries and a 1-2 record to show for its time away. Why can’t the Lakers win without Lonzo Ball, and will they ever? center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “He’s our physical presence,” Walton said. “He’s our guy that needs to bully other teams. … We need him to be not necessarily our tough guy, but our guy (who) when we’re getting pushed around, pushes back a little bit.”The Lakers were outrebounded 54-30 and gave up 21 offensive rebounds that led to 26 second-chance points. Feasting on the glass was Steven Adams, the Thunder’s 7-foot center with the facial hair, frame and mystique of a Dothraki warrior.The Lakers were left to lament the absence of their 6-6 rookie point guard, Lonzo Ball, who for some reason leads them in defensive rebounds at 5.9 per game.“They just big-boyed us,” Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma said. “Steven Adams, we couldn’t stop him from getting a rebound. He was the head of the snake in that department.”Seven of Adams’ 10 rebounds came on the offensive glass. Randle and starting center Brook Lopez combined for just two rebounds, with Randle contributing just one.last_img read more
