Float Fest, Music And Tubing Festival, Announces Tame Impala, Bassnectar, Snoop, Modest Mouse, & More

admin no comments

first_imgFloat Fest is an outdoor camping music festival that will take place at Cool River Ranch in Martindale, Texas, on July 21st and 22nd. The festival is set apart by the fact that it also serves as a tubing event, inviting 20,000 music fans daily to take the opportunity to float down the San Marcos River during its two days.For its fifth year in 2018, Float Fest boasts a truly impressive artist lineup as well, tapping Tame Impala, Bassnectar, Snoop Dog, Modest Mouse, Run The Jewels, Lil Wayne, Glass Animals, Toadies, Cashmere Cat, White Denim, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Com Truise, The Suffers, and more for performances.With Tame Impala heading the lineup, Float Fest marks the third announced appearance the massively popular Australian psych-rock act will be making this year in addition to headlining at Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival and California’s Desert Daze. The group last performed in the United States when the band headlined the Panorama Music Festival in New York City last July. The Australian rockers’ set marked only their second U.S. date of the year, which made sense considering they planned to take a bit of a hiatus in 2017.This year, Float Fest has expanded its capacity after an embattled back-and-forth with Guadalupe County officials. While the festival originally requested a permit for 30,000 fans daily, the two parties eventually settled on 20,000 after locals complained about the influx of traffic to the area as well as waste and noise left by attendees. In response, Float Fest founder Marcus Federman and his attorney filed a 150-page safety and traffic plan detailing how the large-scale festival plans to deal with parking control, waste management, and the distribution of 120 police officers. The plan also shared past efforts to ensure the San Marcos River isn’t unduly affected—over the past three years, the festival has spent $10,000 on mesh bags for floaters to use as trash bags in addition to crews cleaning the river during and after the event.As Federman shared with Community Impact, a local news source, “I hope the commissioners would agree and acknowledge that it’s been a different permitting process this year. … What we put in here will be followed to a T, and if it’s not, it’ll be with everybody’s knowledge and acceptance.”For more information on Float Fest and to purchase tickets, you can head over to the festival’s website here.[H/T Pollstar]last_img read more

Across Harvard, art you can touch

first_img 8A reproduction of the bronze lion erected in the 12th century in the castle square in Brunswick by Duke Henry is now at the Center for European Studies. 1An aspect of Oracle: Portentous by Marianna Pineda, which sits beside the Schlesinger Library on the grounds of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. 13Presence by Mary Frank is at Hamilton Hall at Harvard Business School. 14The marble stele Harvard Bixi sits outside Widener Library. 11Alexander Calder’s Onion adorns the Pusey Library. In the encircled garden alongside Schlesinger Library in Radcliffe Yard, the oracle Portentous receives and transmits knowledge, ancient wisdom guiding future voices. The bronze sculpture by Marianna Pineda was dedicated to Constance E. Smith, the first dean of Radcliffe Institute for Independent Study (1961-1970).“The physical form is set off or liberated from normal worldly boundaries. The feet are not connected to the ground. They are kind of floating. And the arms are kind of out of control,” observes sculptor and artist Nora Schultz, assistant professor of Visual and Environmental Studies. “It is shifting into another sphere, where gesture, gravity, and weight mean something different.”Portentous is just one of the outdoor sculptures — cast in bronze, carved from marble, or chiseled from stone — that dot the campus, inviting contemplation, inciting inspiration, at times challenging perception. They occupy both public and private spaces, silent but monumental parts of the Harvard-Radcliffe community.“Every day you go this way to work or school, you always pass the same object and you develop a certain relationship with it. You see how it changes with different seasons,” Schultz said. “They can really influence phases of your life in a certain way.” 17An untitled 2003 work by Joel Shapiro at Morgan Hall at Harvard Business School. 7Appropriately, Myron’s Discobolus welcomes athletes to the Hemenway Gymnasium. 15Night Wall I by Louise Nevelson is at Hauser Hall at Harvard Law School. 12A fountain in Radcliffe’s Sunken Garden. 6Child Hall at Harvard Law School.center_img 3A Chinese lion stands guard in front of the Harvard-Yenching Library. 18Over the Earth by Tony Cragg is at the Dean’s House at Harvard Business School. 10Katherine Ward Lane Weems’ rhinoceroses Vicky and Bess flank the doors at the Biological Laboratories. 5Peter Walker designed the Tanner Fountain at the Science Center. 16Latent (e)Scapes by Christina Geros MAUD, M.L.A. ’15, lights up Radcliffe Yard. 9The Peabody Museum has a replica of a classic Maya stele from the ruins of Copan. 4Surfacing Stone by Martin Bechthold at Gund Hall at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. 2Red, Blue by Ellsworth Kelly is at Peabody Terrace. 19Daniel Chester French’s ever-popular John Harvard Statue in front of University Hall draws crowds of visitors.last_img read more

Rep Lucidos bill to improve child protections approved by panel

first_img20Jun Rep. Lucido’s bill to improve child protections approved by panel Legislation sponsored by State Rep. Peter Lucido, which will terminate parental rights for anyone who is convicted of having their child undergo a female genital mutilation procedure, was approved by the House Law and Justice Committee today.Female genital mutilation is any procedure performed on girls intended to remove or damage the external genitalia.“When it comes to the genital mutilation of a child, we should absolutely focus on the well-being of that young girl,” said Lucido, vice chair of the Law and Justice Committee. “This procedure has no place in Michigan. We’ve established that with a legislative package my collegues approved today and is going to the governor’s desk. What we need to more strongly emphasize is the future of that child. They should not be with anyone who finds it appropriate to mutilate them.”Lucido’s bill would terminate parental rights for any parent or guardian convicted under state law, pending a separate legal hearing to determine the child’s best interest.The legislative package passed this week follows a February incident where two young girls from Minnesota were subjected to the procedure at a southeast Michigan clinic. A Livonia couple was arrested on federal charges in April after performing the procedure afterhours at their medical clinic, while a third individual has been fired from their emergency room doctor position for performing the procedure at the same Livonia clinic.“Inflicting lifelong physical and mental distress from mutilation is not part of being a good parent, protecting children from such despicable behavior is,” said Lucido, of Shelby Township. “Kids rely on us and we absolutely will not abandon them to this illegal, immoral act.”House Bill 4716 advances to the full House for its consideration.

Cast members including Jack Huston, Toby Kebbell and Rodrigo Santoro turned up to support her.“This is an important film, and I hope that you’ll all go and see it. Because not only is it a great action adventure movie, it is a film that holds deep in its heart a message of peace, justice, reconciliation and forgiveness,” she said.

I came with a heart full of hope. “And if there was ever a time more in our world that we needed this message, it’s now, more than ever.”Roma has picked up multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for “Touched by an Angel,” which ran from 1994-2003 and co-starred her husband, also 56.She first became known to American audiences for her portrayal of first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in the 1991 NBC miniseries “A Woman Named Jackie.”A devout Catholic with a master’s degree in spiritual psychology, she received a producing Emmy in 2013 for outstanding miniseries or movie for History’s “The Bible,” in which she also portrayed Jesus’ mother Mary.Downey’s other producing credits include the miniseries “A.D.
