The “Apple” melody was followed by “Life Back Now” which segued back into “Every Soul”, at which point Lowell Wurster joined the band on washboard. Twiddle closed out the first set with another chain of segues, starting off with “Hattie’s Jam”, which transitioned into “When It Rains It Pours”, into “Forevers”, back into “When It Rains It Pours”, which teased “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”, to close the set.The band returned to the stage with a fitting cover of Marvin Gaye‘s “Let’s Get It On”. After the Marvin Gaye cover came “White Light”, which segued into another holiday cover with “Girl I Wanna Lay You Down” by Jack Johnson & ALO, before segueing back into “White Light”. The set closed out with a pair of older songs, including “Beethoven and Greene” and “Doinkinboink!!!”, which flowed into the newer composition “Just Gravy”, and finally back into “Doinkinboink!!!” to close the show.Check out some fan-shot videos of Twiddle from Valentine’s Day at the Palace Theater, courtesy of Charlie Francis.Twiddle – “Beehop” – 2/14/20Twiddle – “White Light” – 2/14/20Twiddle – “Let’s Get It On” (Marvin Gaye cover) – 2/14/20View VideosTwiddle’s winter tour continues on Thursday, February 20th at the Roxian Theatre in McKees Rocks, PA.

A new supergroup called Dinner Party, featuring Kamasi Washington, Robert Glasper, Terrace Martin, and 9th Wonder, has released its first single, “Freeze Tag”. The cross-genre pairing of musicians will release a self-titled debut album on July 10th.While this grouping of musicians might seem random, they actually have an intertwined history dating back decades. Washington and Martin attended high school together and met Glasper at jazz camp. Martin and Glasper are both members of jazz fusion outfit R+R=Now, Washington was featured on Martin’s protest song “Pig Feet”, and Glasper, Washington, and Martin all contributed to Kendrick Lamar‘s 2015 album To Pimp A Butterfly. The final piece of the equation was rapper 9th Wonder.Related: Fantastic Negrito And Tank From Tank And The Bangas Collaborate On “I’m So Happy I Cry” [Video]In the song, which also features singer Phoelix, a smooth R&B beat counts off to an idyllic guitar loop as the vocals come in. The mellow mood of “Freeze Tag” is conversely paired with lyrics that depict that harsh realities of racial inequality in the United States that led to the creation of the Black Lives Matter movement. Even as the horn section comes in for what would otherwise be considered just another chill groove, the lyrics paint the picture of a grim reality: “They told me put my hands up behind my head/I think they got the wrong one/I’m sick and tired of runnin’/I been searchin’ where the love went/I been lookin’ for a dove/Then they told me if I move, they gon’ shoot me dead.”Listen to “Freeze Tag”, the first single from Dinner Party.

The 1998 winners France and Croatia, who debuted at the same tournament hosted by France, will contest the finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup inside the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Sunday.It will be a repeat of their first meeting in the semi-finals of the said tournament when right wingback Lilian Thuram inspired France with a pair of goals in a 2-1 victory on their way to claiming their only title to date.In semi-final action on Tuesday France tamed the much talked about Belgium 1-0 on a Samuel Umtiti second half header, which proved too much for Roberto Martiniez’ so-called “golden generation” of players. Meanwhile, Croatia rallied from a Kieran Trippier fifth-minute free kick set-back with goals from Ivan Perisic and Mario Mandzukic in the second half of extra time for their 2-1 triumph to become the second smallest nation to play in a World Cup final behind only Uruguay, the 1930 and 1950 winners.The four semi-finalists played for the right to contest the Championship game after intriguing quarter-final victories.France blanked Uruguay 2-0; Belgium somehow survived against Brazil in a 2-1 result; England turned back Sweden 2-0 and Croatia outlasted hosts Russia on penalties after playing to a 2-2 result in full and extra time in a riveting affair.Didier Deschamps’ France had emerged top of Group C with two wins and a draw before outscoring Lionel Messi’s troubled Argentina 4-3 in their round of 16 match.They are stocked with young and exciting talent in every department, even as they struggle to convince with a definitive offering during the tournament.Belgium showed cracksBelgium last made the semi-finals in Mexico in 1986 when a pair of Diego Maradona goals ended their interest in the competition. Since then they have seen the emergence of high quality players such as Eden Hazard, Vincent Kompany, Kevin De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku, Thibaut Courtois, among others, ply their trade in the biggest arenas in Europe.The Russia World Cup was viewed by many as the breakout tournament for a group of players referred to as a “golden generation”. And they began the tournament like a house on fire registering three wins from as many games in the preliminary round of Group G with 3-0 and 5-2 wins over Panama and Tunisia, respectively, before closing out the group with a 1-0 win over England.However, against Japan in their round of 16 match they displayed cracks in their armor, even as they snatched victory from the jaws of defeat in a last-minute goal to edge the Asians 3-2, coming from two goals down in the second half.Lady luck deserted BrazilBut if they were exposed against Japan, they were made to look rather ordinary against Brazil, even as they ran out 2-1 winners. Their victory owed much more to Brazil’s profligacy in front of goal and lady luck, than to their own excellence with and without the ball.Brazil carved out 27 shots (nine) on target, while Belgium mustered only nine shots, including three on target. Courtois was easily their man of the match, a clear sign that the defensive side of their game left a lot to be desired, and thus left him exposed more than they would have wanted.And even though they were the top scoring team, thanks to the presence of Panama and Tunisia in the preliminary phase, their attackers were largely kept at bay, as apart from the two goals, one of which was an own goal by the way, Brazil’s goalkeeper Alisson had very few anxious moments.It was therefore no surprise when France sent them packing in the semi-finals, a defeat which further exposed their limitations in both attack and defense.On the other hand, Brazil’s defense gave up very few chances, as evidenced by the three goals conceded throughout their campaign, while at the other end of the pitch the South Americans were uncharacteristically extremely inefficient with their chances.Croatia displayed character and poiseOn the other side of the draw Croatia were forced to display character, poise, composure and resilience, having been taken all the way to penalties against Sweden and the hosts in an energy-sapping environment.England exposed And after two 120-minute knockout matches, the Croats exposed England for what they really were, a bunch of average players who rode their luck and almost got to the final.Their “route one” approach when Croatia’s more technically sound players wrested control of midfield spoke volumes of the lack of real world class talent assembled by Gareth Southgate.They were gifted the perfect start with Trippier’s early goal and could not have asked for anything better, but seemed to lack players who could keep possession of the ball and force the Croats, who had registered many miles on their legs, to chase ball and expedite fatigue.But instead goalkeeper Jordan Pickford resorted to thumping long balls down field in a performance akin to the ugly days when England were notorious for employing route one football.This style of play encouraged Croatia and provided for them a window to get back into the game and before long their superior technical ability put them in the driver’s seat and the rest is now history.Missed grand opportunity England missed a grand opportunity to advance to the World Cup Final for the first time since winning the title on home soil in 1966.Everything seemed to be falling into place for them on that side of the draw, with defending champions Germany knocked out at the preliminary stage, and 2010 winners Spain unable to overcome the gritty Russians in the round of 16 match-up.The English fans, skeptical at the outset, had started to believe that the World Cup was “coming home”, but instead it will be the players who will be going home much like all but one of their teams, trophy less.And that is to the joy of arguably most football fans.Croatia look to avenge against FranceNow the small nation of Croatia, who seceded from Yugoslavia in 1991, will look to avenge their 1-2 loss to France in the semi-finals in 1998. In four friendly meetings since, France have won 3-0 and 2-0 in 1999 and 2000, respectively, while drawing 2-2 in 2004 and 0-0 in 2011.Will they finally register their first and most important victory against France on Sunday? Only time will tell.
0Shares0000NAIROBI, Kenya, July 4- The 61st edition of the KCB Safari Rally zooms off on Friday with the event under scrutiny whether it is fit to be re-admitted to the World Rally Championships (WRC) Series.Motor Sport governing body, FIA observer Ronan Morgan says it is premature to state whether Kenya is ready to return to the high table of the sport following the removal of the Safari from the WRC roster in 2003. However, he added the next three days will be important in making a conclusion on the readiness of the country being included in the calendar.“I think it’s too early to say if Kenya can get back hosting rights for one of the WRC events but once this event is concluded, we can have a clear picture,” said Morgan.“For Kenya to be back, the organisation must be professional and up to the world standards,” added the Motor Sport Director in the United Arab Emirates.FIA technical delegate, Vinen Goricha, says the planning of this year’s even has stepped up compared to recent past.“We have improved on security, equipment and marshals. We know there is more to be done but we are learning a lot,” he added.Goricha says all the cars have arrived and ready for the competition that will be flagged off at the traditional venue, the Nairobi’s Kenyatta International Conference Centre at 1pm local time (+3GMT) before heading to Jamhuri Park, 11.9km away.The second day will take the drivers to Pipeline, Ole Polos, Corner Baridi, Kajiado, Isinya, Konza, Andy’s Corner, Orien and Olkejuado. Sunday will pose the major test for the drivers in a run that starts at Il Bissel all the way to Parane which is the longest stage covering 84km, Isinya, Konza, Andy’s Corner and finally they will be back in Nairobi at 3.30pm.Defending champion Carl Tundo, navigated by Tim Jessop out to retain the title with another 40 competitors seeking to dethrone him.Veteran Ian Duncan, who won the Safari when it was in the WRC in 1994 and Alastair Cavenagh also in a Mitsubishi Evo 9 are among the key challengers.Local championship leader Baldev Charger, continental champion Essa Mohammed from Zambia and his compatriot Jassy Singh who is the current leader in the Africa Rally Championships competition are other top drivers to look out for.The Supplementary and Classic class competitions have attracted 33 entries.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
