Greensky Bluegrass Delights For Two Nights In Michigan [Gallery/Recap]

first_imgGreensky Bluegrass pulled double duty at The Intersection over the weekend, playing two shows on Friday and Saturday nights to a Grand Rapids, MI crowd with support from The Shook Twins and Billy Strings. The two-night run was filled with the soul-stirring songs from Greensky, who have been picking up new fans by the scores on a nightly basis. The forward momentum caught fire, as the group opened the run with “Worried About The Weather” and never looked back.The band was loose on the first night, welcoming Luke Winslow King for a version of the traditional “Will The Circle Be Unbroken?” Some teases during the second set, including “Happy Birthday” and “Makisupa Policeman” in the second set “Fo Sho Uh Huh” made this great show even more fun. Sandwiched in the midst of a “Broke Mountain Breakdown,” the band was absolutely cooking. Their encore version of Grateful Dead’s “Eyes Of The World” was the icing on the cake!Day two kept things right on rolling, as the band opened up with “Feeling Alright” by Traffic (popularized by Joe Cocker). The show also saw Billy Strings sit-in on the classic blues number, “Workin’ On A Building.”The show featured a Travelin’ Wilburys tune, “Handle Me With Care” and a ton of great Greensky originals (throughout the entire run), proving their versatility and craftsmanship as musicians. The run closed out with a double encore of “Heaven Sent” and “Frederico”; Some great performances from the Greensky boys!All photos courtesy of Kristine Condon Photography, and a full gallery of night two appears below.

Nigeria set to get government ministers

first_imgIt’s taken nearly five months but Nigeria – Africa’s biggest economy, most populous nation and number one oil producer – may get a government this week.Final screening of 36 ministerial nominees is due to take place from Tuesday, ending a lengthy process that has earned President Muhammadu Buhari a less than flattering nickname. Buhari, dubbed “Baba Go Slow” for the time it has taken him to appoint ministers since he took office in May, will then assign the candidates portfolios once they are approved.Since the first names were submitted to parliament on September 30, speculation has been rife about which post goes where. But some appointments look clearer than others.Ibe Kachikwu, the new head of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), is a virtual certainty to serve as junior oil minister, after Buhari said he will personally oversee the ministry himself.Former army chief Abdulrahman Dambazau is in line for the defence portfolio, which has been dominated for the last six years by the Boko Haram insurgency in the northeast.Former Ekiti state governor Kayode Fayemi has been tipped for foreign affairs.last_img read more

Josh Hart jumps Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in Lakers’ starting lineup

first_img Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers “I addressed them,” he said. “I said ‘look, as players, it’s your guys’ job to play the game and as the coach, I will fight fights that I feel like I need to for the guys.’”Throughout the preseason and early season, the Lakers have struggled to adapt to a new emphasis on freedom of movement, which limits defenders’ ability to use their hands and arms to stop both ball-drivers and off-ball cutters running into empty space. Around the league, foul calls are up, but Walton pointed out Monday that the Lakers’ paint-driving style should be drawing more fouls than it has: The Lakers had only shot 73 free throw attempts to 97 by opponents in their first three games. PHOENIX — It took just three games for Josh Hart to break into the starting lineup.The Lakers made a switch at shooting guard on Wednesday night, starting the second-year Villanova product for the first time this season over Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. While Luke Walton didn’t directly announce the change prior to tip-off against the Suns, he alluded that a change might be in the works before giving Hart his shot.In the first three games, Hart was tremendous off the bench, averaging 17 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.3 steals per game while shooting over 47 percent from 3-point range. Building off the momentum of earning Summer League MVP, Hart proved to be one of the most capable rotation players during the start to the season.At the same time, Caldwell-Pope began the season in a funk: He averaged just 4.7 points per game and was 1 for 6 from 3-point range. Walton acknowledged the shooting struggles.

He’s fighting over screens, he’s cutting from the weakside and all the other things we’re asking him to do. When you can shoot the ball as well as he can, he’ll figure that shot out soon enough.”NBA FINES WALTON $15,000Two days following his postgame rant against the officiating in an overtime loss to the San Antonio Spurs, Walton was fined $15,000 by the NBA for his comments.It was an expected consequence from the moment Walton opened his mouth to open his press conference, complaining that the Lakers had been repeatedly hampered on defense by freedom of movement rules, but not benefiting from the same kinds of calls on offense. Before the Lakers tipped off against Phoenix, Walton said he picked the battle for his players to keep them from having to speak up (and get fined).Related Articlescenter_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Still, Walton said, it’s not just about the officials.“Well a lot of it is in our control on limiting the fouls,” he said. “That is us playing better defense, that is us not jumping at pump-fakes from jump shooters. That is us doing our work early and not reacting to what the offense does.” Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed last_img read more
