Bob Weir And Wolf Bros Welcome Mikaela Davis For Neil Young Cover [Full Show Audio/Video]

first_imgBob Weir And Wolf Bros continued their debut North American tour in Syracuse on Thursday night in the new band’s ongoing quest to create fresh identities for the Grateful Dead live catalog. Weir, along with drummer Jay Lane and bassist Don Was filled their 18-song performance at the Landmark Theatre on Thursday with plenty of Dead favorites like “Jack Straw”and “Loose Lucy”, in addition to a mix of covers like their spin of Neil Young‘s “Down by the River” to open their two-song encore with help from local 26-year-old harpist Mikaela Davis.Footage of the band playing the rock song from Young’s 1969 Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere album on Thursday night can be watched below. Viewers can immediately pick up on Davis’ presence on stage, as the notes from her harp clearly flutter throughout the venue atop the band’s rhythm section to heavy audience applause. Davis even takes the lead on vocals as the song’s first verse begins at the 0:35 mark. Weir can be seen and heard stepping up to join Davis during the song’s anthemic chorus, which is followed by a wonderfully rich harp solo adventurous enough for any passionate Dead fan.The band’s rendition of “Down by the River” wasn’t the audience’s first introduction to Davis last night. The musician from Rochester also joined in to play with the trio at the end of the first set to sit in on covering Jerry Garcia‘s “Bird Song”, and returning in the second half of the show to help play on “Wharf Rat” (also see below) followed by early Dead favorites “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider”. She also stayed on stage following the Neil Young cover to close the show with a cover of the Garcia’s beloved folk ballad “Ripple”.The band also sprinkled in a few other tasteful covers into the night’s set including Bob Dylan‘s “All Along the Watchtower” and The Temptations‘ Standing on Shaky Ground”.Bob Weir and Wolf Bros – 11/8/18 [Audio: binto37]Bob Weir And Wolf Bros with Mikaela Davis – “Down by the River” [Neil Young Cover][Video: nochevys]Bob Weir And Wolf Bros with Mikaela Davis – “Wharf Rat”[Video: nochevys]Weir and his Wolf Bros comrades continue their fall trek this weekend with a two-night run at the famous Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York on Friday and Saturday.

Dutch regulator growing too powerful, Pensions Federation warns

first_imgHe said he was particularly worried that, in practice, pension scheme boards would no longer determine such things as the timing of the spreading of financial shocks – and that the DNB would make those decisions instead.Riemen argued that pension schemes could be subject a strict “scaled” planning that would severely curb policymaking freedom.In that event, the industry’s fears would be realised, “as pension fund trustee boards would no longer be allowed to take responsibility”.He added: “The DNB can force pension funds to change their investment strategy. It doesn’t literally say so in the Memorandum of Explanation, but there is a real risk this may happen.” Draft legislation for a new financial assessment framework (nFTK) in the Netherlands has “some positive elements”, but there is a real danger the pensions regulator (DNB) will be given too much power to decide schemes’ investment strategies, the Pensions Federation has warned.Gerard Riemen, director at the Pensions Federation, said he was pleased the draft legislation included such elements as the spreading of financial shocks over time, a 12-month average funding rate and complete pension contracts, in addition to measures to promote contribution-level stability.He said the draft law also showed that Jetta Klijnsma, state secretary of Social Affairs and Labour, had “listened to the industry”, as the proposals included the smoothing of contribution levels by applying expected returns, and allowed schemes to make up indexation shortfalls without submitting to the new rules that will apply to indexation going forward.However, Riemen said he was concerned pension fund trustee boards would have little room to set policy if pension contracts set every detail in stone.last_img read more

Badgers run out of gas in 70-55 loss to Gonzaga

first_imgAs temperatures dropped into single digits, the Wisconsin women’s basketball team’s shooting percentage was not much higher against No. 23 Gonzaga (8-1) Tuesday night.The Badgers shot a season low 32 percent from the field and were ice cold from three-point range only shooting 22.7 percent.  The Badgers dropped their first home game of the season 55-70 to the Bulldogs, a game UW was in until the final minutes.“Gonzaga’s a really good team, they’re battle tested, they’re NCAA [tournament] tested, and we’re trying to get where they are,” head coach Bobbie Kelsey said. “But we could have played much better tonight, we had our opportunities and we didn’t take advantage of them.”Gonzaga jumped out to an early lead, starting the game on a 10-2 run. During that run, Wisconsin missed their first eight shots, and the points were a product of junior Michala Johnson converting two free throws.Sophomore Nicole Bauman ended the drought by scoring a lefty layup 6:51into the game. That sparked a 10-0 Badger run after following a timeout, and went ahead 12-10 on a three from the top of the key by Bauman. The Badgers adjusted by pulling down boards consistently and pushing the ball up court. It would remain a tight game for the rest of the first half with the largest lead being Gonzaga by four at 22-18.Junior forward Jacki Gulczynski kept the pace for the Badgers down the stretch in the first half. She knocked down a three to put the Badgers up 23-22 and after a Gonzaga make she hit a layup off a feed from Bauman as the shot clock expired.After junior Ann Marie Brown pulled down an offensive rebound with 28 seconds remaining in the half, Wisconsin held the ball for the last shot. Taylor Wurtz took that shot and flushed a three with eight seconds left, sending the Badgers into the locker room ahead 29-28.The Zags stormed out of the half on a 9-0 run, similar to that of the first half. And once again, Wisconsin responded, with a 11-2 run. Senior Morgan Paige, last game’s hero, took charge during that run and scored the Badgers next nine of 11, trimming the Bulldogs lead to 40-42. Paige finished with a game-high 19 points, and is only five away from reaching the 1,000-point benchmark. She also attempted a career-high 14 free throws.To add to the rollercoaster, Gonzaga reeled off a 10-0 run to extend their lead 52-40, a run started and finished by three-pointers from senior point guard Jazmine Redmond. That finally buried the Badgers, and the closest they would get would be eight with 4:48 remaining.UW’s offense became stagnant and became predictable due to a lack of ball movement.While the Badgers struggled mightily shooting the ball, it seemed that the whole Gonzaga team had a hot hand. They finished the game shooting 45.6 percent from the field and shot 46.7 percent from beyond the arc (7-15). Coming into this game, the Badgers knew that a major key to victory would be eliminating the tre’s from Gonzaga, but failed to execute their game plan.Jacki Gulczynski did not score in the second half after putting up eight in the first half. Her shooting woes continued as she saw several of her jumpers and three balls go in-and-out.However, Gulczynski stepped up on the defensive and rebounding parts of her game after Johnson’s minutes were limited due to early foul trouble. Johnson picked up a second foul with 2:32 remaining in the second half and sat the remainder of the period. 37 seconds into the second half, she was called for an illegal screen and sat until the 9:45 mark. Johnson scored a season low six points in by far her most disappointing game of the season.“Mick normally plays better defense than she did,” Kelsey said. “She can play much better than that, I know she’s disappointed in her play, it really does hurt us when she doesn’t get off to a good start because we depend on her.”This put the low-block defensive responsibilities on Gulczynski, and the six-foot forward had the difficult tasks of containing 6-4 junior Sunny Greinacher. With Gulczynski matched up on her, Greinacher turned the ball over twice and did not score.The Badgers game plan was to contain senior guard Haiden Palmer, the team’s leading scorer who averaged 17.3 points per game going into Tuesday night’s matchup. But Palmer only managed to score six points. Instead, Redman took the reigns and scored a team high 15 points after only averaging 4.4 heading into the game. Her backup, junior Danielle Walter scored a career-high as well with 10 points in support.  Junior Keani Albanez added ten of her own, including two three pointers, and racked up five steals.“We were set to contain number three [Palmer],” Paige said. “Other kids stepped up and hit shots for them … they did something uncharacteristic of what we had seen.”“I give Bobbie a lot of credit, I’ll tell you, she’s got a real nice team,” Gonzaga head coach Kelly Graves said. “They’re going to win a lot of Big Ten games, this is a good team.”While Big Ten play does not start for another month, the Badgers will fly to Seattle and take on Washington (2-2) on Friday.last_img read more
