first_imgLoad remaining images Photo: Vic Brazen Last night, following their return to the stage with now cancer-free bassist Rob Derhak earlier this month, Buffalo-native jam favorites moe. continued their sparse run of early-2018 dates with their first of two nights at Portland, ME’s State Theatre this weekend. The crowd was thick and lively all night, filled with t-shirts and signs showing love to Rob and welcoming him back to the world of moe. The love in the room was particularly strong on Friday night, as the crowd matched the considerable emotion being created onstage. When the band addressed Rob’s recent cancer battle during the first set, the venue erupted. Rob lives relatively close to Portland, amplifying how grateful this particular crowd was that their man is healthy and playing once more.Highlights of the first set included the extended opening “Bring It Back Home” (a fitting tribute for Rob), the debut of new song “Who You Calling Scared”, and a cover of The Rolling Stones‘ “Dead Flowers” featuring a sit-in from local pedal steel guitarist Bill Waldron that followed. Set two highlights were ripe for the taking, including a massive set-opening “Big World” > “Ricky Marten” > “Time Ed” segment and a fantastic set-closing “Head”. Finally, the band returned for an encore performance of “Godzilla” to close out night returns to Portland’s State Theatre tonight for their second performance of the weekend. Next weekend, on February 23rd and 24th, the band will head to Albany, NY for two nights at the historic Palace Theatre. Head to the band’s website for info on their upcoming performances.You can listen to full audio of the show below, and check out a gallery of photos courtesy of Vic Brazen:moe. – Full Show Audio – Portland, ME – 2/18/18[Audio: Taped by Ted Gakidis]SETLIST: moe. | State Theatre | Portland, ME | 2/18/18Set One: Bring It Back Home > Water > Bullet, Who You Calling Scared*, Dead Flowers^, Mar-DeMa > Lazarus, The RoadSet Two: Big World > Ricky Marten > Time Ed, Puebla, Four, HeadEncore: GodzillaNotes:*new song debut^with Bill Waldron on pedal steelmoe. | State Theatre | Portland, ME | 2/16/18 | Photos: Vic Brazenlast_img read more

Juventus lose to Cagliari; Ibra stars in Milan win

first_imgTURIN: Cristiano Ronaldo’s hopes of finishing the season as top scorer in Italy’s Serie A faded away on Wednesday as he failed to find the net when champions Juventus slumped to a shock 2-0 defeat away to Cagliari. The 35-year-old Portuguese attacker is on 31 goals for the season, four behind Lazio’s Ciro Immobile with only a home league game against fifth-placed AS Roma left to play. Cagliari, who are 13th in the table, shocked the newly-crowned champions in the eighth minute when 20-year-old striker Luca Gagliano reacted quickest, stabbing home Federico Mattiello’s pass across the box to net his first goal for the club. Things went from bad to worse for Juve in first-half stoppage time as Giovanni Simeone smashed a right-foot shot across keeper Gianluigi Buffon and in at the far post to put Cagliari two goals up. With a first-half goal chalked off for offside, Ronaldo had plenty of chances as Juve dominated, but he found his efforts smothered by the Cagliari defence. When his team mates did manage to get a shot on target they found keeper Alessio Cragno in superb form as Cagliari held on to win. Veteran AC Milan forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice and Gianluigi Donnarumma saved a penalty as they won 4-1 at Sampdoria to stay unbeaten since the Serie A season restarted. Milan remained sixth with 63 points which will earn them a place in the Europa League second qualifying round next season, with the automatic spot in that competition going to fifth-placed AS Roma, who beat Torino 3-2 later on Wednesday. Milan went ahead after four minutes when Ante Rebic crossed from the left and the unmarked Ibrahimovic headed past Sampdoria goalkeeper Wladimiro Falcone who was making his Serie A debut at the age of 25. Lazio recorded a 2-0 win against already-relegated Brescia in their penultimate match of the season to stay in the race for second spot in the Serie A table. Lecce won 2-1 at Udinese to avoid drop while Genoa was routed 5-0 at Sassuolo. Lecce remained in the bottom three but is just one point below 17th-place Genoa. Federico Chiesa scored a hat trick to help Fiorentina beat Bologna 4-0 and Verona beat Spal 3-0. Agencies Also Watch: 3 Anti CAA Protests In Assam; 30 Indigenous Orgs Protest Todaylast_img read more

Boeheim, Syracuse seniors reflect on 1st season in ACC, move from Big East

first_imgBUFFALO, N.Y. — More than any other coach leading a team in Buffalo for the opening weekend of the NCAA Tournament, Jim Boeheim gets asked to reminisce.He looked back at some milestone wins on Wednesday, and even recalled his first NCAA Tournament.But after coaching Syracuse during its first season in the Atlantic Coast Conference this year, Boeheim had something new to reminisce about: the Big East and how it compared to his first season in the new league.“The restaurants were pretty good,” the SU head coach joked. “It surprised me. They were really pretty good.”Otherwise, though, Boeheim and seniors C.J. Fair and Baye Moussa Keita said the conferences aren’t so different.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textComing into the league, Fair heard all about how different the styles of the leagues were. The Big East was a physical, grind-it-out conference. The ACC was all about up-and-down, high-speed hoops.Instead, the ACC looked even more like the Big East than the Big East sometimes did. The additions of Syracuse and Pittsburgh, as well as Virginia finding an identity as a slow team, gave the conference a variety of looks and styles.“I think the physicality of the ACC was underestimated, or underrated,” Fair said. “It’s just you get a taste of everything in the ACC, not just one style.”Unanimously, both players said the biggest thing that they missed from the Big East was the postseason play. The ACC Tournament is a highly competitive week of play, but it doesn’t induce the same nostalgia as the tournament in Madison Square Garden.“You have the opportunity to go and see different places. But the one thing I would miss is the Big East tournament, the rivalry between us and different schools,” Keita said. “We were just watching the Georgetown game again, us and them, so it’s just a big rivalry. But now you have to make new rivalries starting this year.”But while the Tournament may have been the same as it has been, the league the Orange left was far different than the one that SU helped found in 1979.That league — the one with Providence, St. John’s, Georgetown, Seton Hall, Connecticut, Boston College, Villanova and Pittsburgh — is the one that Boeheim is nostalgic about. Not the one that had ballooned to feature Rutgers, West Virginia, Miami (Fla.), Virginia Tech, DePaul and Marquette.“You didn’t know who was going to be where,” Boeheim said. “It just wasn’t the same.”His only worry was about how the fans would react, and they turned out in droves and gave Syracuse its best attendance since 1993.The Big East was an old, familiar ship, but old ships begin to sink at some point, and the Orange got off in time to find solid ground.“We got to a league that is going to be stable, as stable as you can be,” Boeheim said. “And given the people that run college basketball or athletics, I think it will be stable.“You never know how things are going to be, but it turned out really good. Really good.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 19, 2014 at 3:56 pm Contact David: [email protected] | @DBWilson2last_img read more
