admin no comments

first_imgOn Friday night, Mike Gordon returned to The Sinclair in Cambridge, MA for the second show of his four-night tour-closing run.After getting started with “Destiny Unbound”, Gordon and his band—comprised of guitarist Scott Murawski, keyboardist/organist Robert Walter, drummer John Kimock, and percussionist Craig Myers—moved into “Pendulum”, off of Gordon’s 2017 OGOGO release. The quintet moved forward with a rocking cover of Max Creek‘s “Jones”, which smoothly segued into “Ether”, a dreamy number off of Gordon’s 2014 Overstep release. With Mike laying down some colossal bass bombs, the band dove into the second OGOGO tune of the night, “Marissa”, followed by a full-throttle take on “Normal Phoebe”.  The set-closing “Normal Phoebe” ignited an all out dance party in the shoulder-to-shoulder sold-out Cambridge club.Following a brief setbreak, Mike Gordon and his bandmates returned to open their second set with a rowdy take on “Let’s Go”, as the amped up crowd sung along. Gordon and company moved forward with “Cruel World”, the second Max Creek cover of the evening, with guitar maestro Scott Murawski putting on a show through a series of explosive solos. Kimock and Myers locked into a tight groove on “Up and Down”, followed by an exploratory “555”. Debuted last week at Gordon’s Jersey City show, the quintet dove into an interesting and unique cover of “When Your Mind’s Made Up”, a tune from the 2007 film and 2011 musical, Once. The tour debut of “Check Your Pepper” came next, followed by a set-closing segue of “Steps” into “Dig Further Down”. When the band reemerged for their encore, Murawski stepped up to take the vocal lead on an electric cover of Talking Head‘s “Cities”.Mike Gordon’s solo tour continues tonight, Saturday, March 23rd, at The Sinclair in Cambridge, MA. For a full list of Mike Gordon’s upcoming tour dates, head here.Setlist: Mike Gordon | The Sinclair | Cambridge, MA | 3/22/2019Set One: Destiny Unbound, Pendulum, Jones > Ether, Marissa > Normal PhoebeSet Two: Let’s Go, Cruel World, Up And Down, 555 -> When Your Mind’s Made Up, Check Your Pepper, Steps > Dig Further DownEncore: Citieslast_img read more

Back to the Umpire

admin no comments

first_imgWhile Sally & I were having lunch with Ray & Celia Gibson the other day, Ray & I started talking about the good old days when we both played baseball at Batesville High School.  When Ray & I played, you had one plate umpire and one base umpire and their word was rule.  If Pots called you out on strikes, you could argue till the cows came home, but you were still going to be out!If you watch baseball today, you have to put up with long delays while 2 or 3 umpires go over to the phones and call New York.  One of the umpiring crews is sitting in an electronic studio watching plays come in from all baseball sites.  They take the play cel by cel until they make a decision.  This is supposed to take only a couple minutes, but it stretches to as much as 5 on many occasions.  No wonder an average game takes 3+ hours to complete.Ray made this comment “give the game back to the umpires” and let’s play ball!!last_img read more

first_imgShortly after, the tragic Parkland school shooting, lawmakers in Florida passed the “Red Flag Law” which allows law enforcement agencies to seize firearms from individuals they believe may pose a threat to themselves or others.The Florida law has been thrown into the spotlight in the wake of the recent mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.President Trump is reportedly considering making the bipartisan legislation federal law in efforts to combat mass shootings in the US.The law is known in Florida as the Risk Protection Act.It allows a law enforcement agency to petition a judge to force someone they believe is a threat to surrender their firearms for a period not to exceed a year.Over 450 guns were seized in South Florida almost immediately after the law was enacted in the state in 2018. The recent mass shootings have reignited calls for gun control, including banning assault weapons entirely in the US.The ban on assault weapons has been a controversial topic amongst Americans.Those who oppose the ban of assault weapons argue it would infringe on their second amendment rights.But others argue that the weapon is dangerous, has been used to kill vasts amounts of people, and should not be accessible to civilians.President Trump is reportedly in talks with lawmakers as Americans call on officials to find a solution to the mass shooting epidemic in the US.last_img read more
