Last night, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead made their way to The Music Farm in Charleston, SC. The live Dead force comprised of Joe Russo (drums), Scott Metzger (guitar/vocals), Tom Hamilton (guitar/vocals), Marco Benevento (keys) and Dave Dreiwitz (bass) delivered a stellar show to the sellout crowd.The first set was a non-stop series of seamless segues and improvisations, including an extended take on “Viola Lee Blues” (featuring teases of U2‘s “I Will Follow”), a “Shakedown Street” that wove into a “Dancing In The Streets” jam, an incredible “Mr. Charlie” -> “Candyman” segue, a far-out “Uncle John’s Band”, and a multi-part “The Wheel” segment containing a jam on Radiohead‘s “National Anthem” and the band’s first-ever stand-alone “Terrapin Flyer”, which was left out of their “Terrapin Suite” the night before in Nashville.Set two featured top-notch renditions of “Estimated Prophet”, “Saint of Circumstance”, and “Greatest Story Ever Told”. Finally, the band encored with Bob Dylan‘s “Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You” -> “Not Fade Away”, which flowed into an “Iko Iko” jam before finishing strong with a “Not Fade Away” reprise.You can listen to full audio of the performance below, uploaded by archive.org user chrisdavis:Setlist: Joe Russo’s Almost Dead | The Music Farm | Charleston, SC | 1/13/17Set One: Golden Road To Unlimited Devotion (TH) -> Viola Lee Blues @ (All) -> Shakedown Street (TH) -> Dancin In The Streets Jam # -> Mr Charlie $ (SM) -> Jam -> Candyman (TH) -> Uncle John’s Band % (All) -> The Wheel Jam -> National Anthem Jam ^ -> The Wheel (All) -> Terrapin Flyer & -> The Wheel Reprise (All)Set Two: Loser (TH) -> Estimated Prophet (SM) -> Other One Jam * -> Mississippi Half Step (TH) -> Lost Sailor (SM) -> Saint Of Circumstance (SM), Row Jimmy (TH) -> Greatest Story (SM)Encore: Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You @@ (TH) > Not Fade Away ## (All) -> Iko Iko Jam $$ -> Not Fade Away Reprise %% (All)@ – With an “I Will Follow” (U2) tease (TH)# – First/Second time played.

During Phish‘s historic Baker’s Dozen run this past summer, New York City became many Phish fans’ stomping grounds with pre-parties and post-parties popping up all over the Manhattan and Brooklyn. Jam-friendly, multi-room venue American Beauty, which is located right around the corner from Madison Square Garden, saw record crowds flow in and out of the club during the Baker’s Dozen mayhem, both before and after the main event each night.American Beauty’s motto is Live Music – Craft Beer – Free Pizza, making it a go-to with its enticing deal of free pizza with the purchase of any alcoholic beverage. With the Vermont Quartet back in town for a four-night New Year’s run (Dec. 28th – 31st), the club has announced a packed schedule of pre-parties (without cover charges); late-night performances from the likes of The Nth Power, Particle, The Werks, Kung Fu; the return of The Jerry Lounge; and much more to end 2017 in style.Deep down inside at the very core of The Nth Power you will find only L-O-V-E. The spiritually soulful funk of Nick Cassarino, Nikki Glaspie, and Nate Edgar comes from a collectively diverse musical portfolio that got its chops by playing to the masses in various formations across all stretches of the music-verse. But when creating their own unique sound, it becomes increasingly clear that these musicians simply belong together. There is something relentlessly inspiring behind the music and lyrics of this Earth-bound band that is able to stretch out to the furthest reaches of consciousness, thought, and being. Open yourself up and let The Nth Power in.“Only Love”:[via The Nth Power]Keyboard wizard Steve Molitz has been at the helm of Particle since the band began, interestingly enough, at a Phish after-party in California at the very beginning of the 1.0 era hiatus back in 2000. Particle, along with The Disco Biscuits, STS9, and Lotus, was one of the first acts to blend the jam and electronic genres together, creating the livetronica sub-genre at the onset of the new millennium. With the release of Launchpad and Transformations Live, Particle took on a life of its own, playing and touring with the Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart and Phil Lesh, Robby Krieger of The Doors, Joe Satriani, Blackalicious, The String Cheese Incident’s Michael Kang, and many more.

The Werks continue to earn fans across the country by throwing down fire sets at festivals like Camp Bisco, Jam Cruise, Electric Forest, High Sierra; carving out their own slice of the festie scene with their own hometown event The Werk Out Music & Arts Festival; and headlining countless venues nationwide. No strangers to the Phish late-night game, the group will also be returning to American Beauty for what is sure to be yet another unique performance well into the early hours of the morning. Purchase tickets here.The Werks, “Slab”, The Werk Out 2017[via The Werks Official]Out of their dojo in Connecticut, Kung Fu delivers a deadly funk-fusion assault that would defeat the most sinister of demonic rakshasas. Over the past few months, the group has been releasing a series of singles dubbed Ninja Cuts, with the latest in the series featuring deep funk classic cut “Scorpion” penned by keyboardist Beau Sasser. In a recent interview with L4LM, drummer Adrian Tramontano discussed Kung Fu’s activity in the studio and switching things up with their live shows, “We’re writing a lot of new tunes. We’re just changing up our show a lot from what it used to be in the past. We are getting really open about how we’ve been playing stuff lately. I want people to get into the band, dig into the set list and check stuff out on archive.” Purchase tickets here.Kung Fu, “Scorpion”[via Kung Fu]Here is the full breakdown of the late night shows going on at American Beauty during Phish’s upcoming New Year’s Run:Post-Phish Late Night ShowsThurs 12/28 – The Nth PowerDoors: 11:30pm/Show: 11:55pmPurchase TicketsFri 12/29 – ParticleDoors: 11:30pm/Show: 11:55pmPurchase TicketsSat 12/30 – The WerksDoors: 11:30pm/Show: 11:55pmPurchase TicketsSun 12/31 – Kung FuDoors: 1:00am to late (open past 4am)Purchase TicketsRead on below for more information about American Beauty’s planned New Year’s Eve schedule:Phish MSG NYE Stream Party-7:30pm-1:30am-$25 General Admission Includes:-HD Live Stream in Front Bar and Performance Hall-Complimentary Champagne Toast at Midnight-Free Admission to After-Party (no re-entry)$75 All-Inclusive VIP Package Includes:-HD Live Stream in Front Bar and Performance Hall-Complimentary Champagne Toast at Midnight-Free Admission to After-Party-Open Bar from 10pm-1am-Guaranteed Entry to After-PartyNYE After Party-1am-Late (venue will be open past 4am)-$25 General Admission:-Live Set by Kung Fu-Jerry Lounge Experience-DJs TBD-$75 Open Bar Upgrade:-Live Set by Kung Fu-Jerry Lounge-Open Bar from 1am-4amHere is the full breakdown of the pre-shows going on at American Beauty during Phish’s upcoming New Year’s Run:Pre-Phish Events– Venue opens at 3pm every day and live music starts at 4pm.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Progressive lawmakers including Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are pushing the Biden administration to act ever more aggressively on climate change now that Democrats are in charge of Congress and the White House. A week after President Joe Biden signed signed executive orders intended to combat the worst effects of climate change, liberal lawmakers are urging him to go even further and declare a national emergency on climate change. Such a declaration would allow Biden to reinstate a ban on crude-oil exports and force companies to manufacture solar panels and other elements of the so-called green economy.
The club have, though, been charged with failing to control their players after they furiously harangued referee Robert Madley. An FA statement read: “Fabricio Coloccini will not serve a one-match suspension after his wrongful dismissal claim was successful. “An Independent Regulatory Commission found that the match referee had made an obvious error in dismissing the Newcastle United defender for denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity during the game against Sunderland on Sunday 25 October 2015. “Newcastle United have been charged for failing to control their players in relation to their reaction to the match referee’s decision. “The club have until 6pm on 30 October 2015 to respond to the charge.” Newcastle’s successful appeal means Coloccini will now be available for Saturday’s home Premier League fixture against Stoke. It is a boost for Steve McClaren’s side, but the bitter taste of the game-changing sending-off will remain. Newcastle had been on top at the Stadium of Light until the decision, which allowed Adam Johnson to slot home from the penalty spot. Billy Jones tapped home a second with 25 minutes remaining and Steven Fletcher added a third as Sunderland recorded a sixth successive derby win. Press Association Tempers frayed at the Stadium of Light after the Magpies captain was given a straight red card in first-half injury time, having appeared to bundle over Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher as he raced towards goal. Newcastle lodged an appeal after the 3-0 loss for wrongful dismissal – something the FA accepted, meaning Coloccini will now not have to serve a one-match ban. Newcastle have successfully appealed Fabricio Coloccini’s red card in the Tyne-Wear derby, although the Football Association has charged the club with failing to control their players in the aftermath of that decision in the defeat to Sunderland.
