For the past few nights, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe has been touring with The White Wizard himself, Widespread Panic guitarist Jimmy Herring. Herring and Denson have collaborated many times in the past, and they recently joined forces in New Orleans earlier this year. With that show going so well, it was only logical for KDTU to recruit Herring for a full run of shows in the Southeast, and the results could not have been better.Jimmy Herring and Karl Denson are seasoned musical veterans, so it’s no surprise that their collaboration would be so well received. The band hit the Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte, NC last Friday, treating fans to a non-stop smoke show. The group got down on some KDTU originals, as well as hit covers like ZZ Top’s “Just Got Paid”, David Bowie’s “Young Americans” and Steely Dan’s “Show Biz Kids.”Fortunately, thanks to taper “tonedeaf”, we can listen to a full length stream of the show. Tune in for a recording of Jimmy Herring with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe in Charlotte, coming in hot below.Note: Herring comes in for the fourth song, “Chicken Lickin’,” and remains through the finale.Don’t miss this incredible collaboration one last time, as they’ll be performing at the City Winery Nashville tonight to close out the five show run.[Photo via khop98 // Instagtram]
A Board Member of Asante Kotoko Jerry Asare has taken a swipe at the Ghana League Clubs Association for their inability to organize this year’s Top 4 tournament.GHALCA on Tuesday confirmed the cancellation of the pre season tournament having explained their inability to put together the competition after failing to secure the Accra and Kumasi stadia.“I believe it is not the best, Alhaji Raji and his guys should be up and doing and check whatever problem they are facing to rectify it so it doesn’t happen again because organizing tournaments and cancelling it is not the best for GHALCA”, said Jerry Aare in an interview with JOY Sports“It’s unfortunate this has happened, we saw it earlier and for kotoko this will not affect our plans in any way”.League champions Asante Kotoko would have battled AshantiGold, Hearts of Oak and Medeama SC for the title as off-season champions.
It was 411 days ago that Nick Robertson flashed what may have been the biggest smile of his life when he met the media at Rogers Arena. Why? Because on June 22, 2019, the kid from California was drafted in the second round, 53rd overall, by the Maple Leafs.On an August night in 2020, he had a bigger smile after he scored his first career NHL goal. Playing on Thursday against the Blue Jackets, Robertson skated down the left wing in the second period and stepped into a pass from Kasperi Kapanen, sending a one-timer squeaking past netminder Joonas Korpisalo.He is the first 18-year-old to score a playoff goal for Toronto since Ted Kennedy in 1944.After an impressive junior season with the Ontario Hockey League’s Peterborough Petes, where he posted 86 points (55 goals, 31 assists), Robertson was invited to the Leafs’ Phase 3 training camp in July.MORE: Leafs to miss Jake Muzzin for remainder of qualifying round Before Toronto’s first qualifying round game Sunday, coach Sheldon Keefe told reporters that the young forward “is a guy who has got a great skill set. If he gets an opportunity, he can make a difference offensively. The big thing that we have seen is the way he has been able to work — his work habits and the way that he skates and the way that he is on the puck.”Playing on a line with Alexander Kerfoot and Kapanen, Robertson has shown a high hockey IQ and strong offensive skills in the team’s first three games of the postseason. That’s not surprising, considering he registered five points (two goals, three assists) in five games for the United States at the 2020 IIHF World Junior Championship.The veteran Jason Spezza, who was drafted three months before Robertson was born, grabbed the keepsake.
