Past editions have included Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Hot Tuna, The Wood Brothers, North Mississippi Allstars, and Los Lobos.“We all draw from some of the same roots,” Derek Trucks said in a statement. “But we also share a different perspective than your typical southern rock bands do. I have a lot of respect and admiration for the Truckers’ songwriting. It’s an honest take on the world we live in.”“It’s been fun getting to know Marcus and watching him develop,” Trucks added. “He sat in with us at the Beacon and it will be great to have a chance to collaborate more on stage over the summer”“It’s going to be something different for us, for sure.,” King told Live For Live Music earlier this year “We’re definitely going to try and translate our intimate vibe into those larger venues and shows. It’s going to be a challenge but it’s one we’re all very open to and super excited about.”Tickets for the newly-announced Atlanta show will go on sale to the general public on Friday, April 27th.

Bryan Cranston on ‘Breaking Bad’ Return: Never Say Never

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Can’t believe we still have to say this: major spoiler alert.The good folks in Albuquerque, New Mexico may have jumped the gun when they memorialized a cancer-stricken teacher-turned-maniacal-drug-kingpin with a mock funeral when “Breaking Bad” went off the air last year. Apparently, according to Bryan Cranston, Walter White may have survived a bullet that we thought killed him. The last we saw of White, he crumpled to the ground after getting shot by his own contraption in a bloody, revenge-filled massacre at the end of the series. In an interview with CNN, Cranston, who played White, or “Heisenberg,” teased that the famed character may still be breathing. Asked about the final scene, Cranston said: “You never saw bags zip up or anything.” C’mon, yo. Pressed if White did, indeed, die, the actor added: “You never know…never say never.” While many series finales culminate in a slow, painful death, “Breaking Bad” was able to use the momentum it built early on and cap off the series with a suspense-filled, nail-biting final season that didn’t disappoint.So, what’s next? Maybe something, or nothing at all. Thanks, Cranston. “Breaking Bad” fans have been patiently waiting for the debut of “Better Call Saul,” a spinoff starring shady lawyer Saul Goodman. Cranston has taken advantage of his “Breaking Bad” stardom. He starred in “Godzilla,” which has earned $162 million since its May 16 debut. He’s also playing Lyndon B Johnson in the Broadway show, “All the Way.”last_img read more

Wellington High, Onslow College get gender-neutral bathrooms

first_imgStuff co.nz 6 March 2016For a transgender teenager, something as simple as going to the loo at school can be a huge stress.So two Wellington schools are leading a dunny revolution: fitting gender-neutral bathrooms for students who feel uncomfortable using ‘male’ or ‘female’ bathrooms.Wellington High School has transformed its level 4 boys’ bathroom into, well, just a bathroom.And Onslow College is soon to follow suit, spending tens of thousands converting an old block of girls’ toilets into gender-neutral facilities.The schools join a global trend of schools and cities moving towards bathrooms that are not set up specifically for men or women.“Some people don’t identify with male or female fully, so it’s hard for those people not feeling they can go into one of those bathrooms,” said Wellington High School student Rose MacKenzie.READ MORE: http://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post/news/wellington/77457959/wellington-high-onslow-college-get-genderneutral-bathroomsKeep up with family issues in NZ.

Bishop Ludden basketball teams swept by CBA again

first_imgScan the entire history of the boys basketball “Holy War” between Bishop Ludden and Christian Brothers Academy, and a pattern emerges.For years at a time, one side or another will dominate the series, sometimes the Gaelic Knights (especially in the last decade), other times the Brothers.At least in 2020, it was CBA getting the best of it on both occasions, including last Tuesday night’s edition at Ludden where the Brothers again put up a fine all-around effort and won 67-57. Unlike their Jan. 26 game at Onondaga Community College’s Allyn Hall decided by Colin Kelly’s last-second basket, this time CBA didn’t require any late dramatics.Every time Ludden wanted to push the tempo, the Brothers wouldn’t let them, using its trademark man-to-man defense to make the Gaelic Knights work on every single possession.Despite this, Ludden only trailed 45-40 going to the fourth quarter, but with a chance to salvage a split, it could not put together the sustained run it needed. Mykell Kaigler was held to eight points, with Monte Johnson getting 15 points as Jarin Beauford had 14 points and Nazier Kinsey added 13 points.It was CBA’s Dan Anderson leading all scorers as he earned 25 points, helped by double-figure efforts from Kelly, Sam Haas (10 points each) and Jason Boule, who got 12 points.As this went on, the Bishop Ludden girls team was at CBA, witnessing a bit of history while taking a 48-37 defeat that had the potential to be far more costly than the score of the game itself.The history part involved CBA senior Brooke Jarvis surpassing Leanne Ockenden’ as the school’s all-time leading scorer, a 3-pointer in the fourth quarter getting Jarvis past the mark of 1,438 that Ockenden set from 2007 to 2010.Despite all this, Ludden only trailed 38-31 going to the fourth quarter, but then saw its leading scorer, freshman forward Amarah Streiff, go down with an ankle injury.Streiff, who had 15 points, did not return to the game, and her status for the rest of the season was unknown as Lauren Petrie got nine points and Ke’Aira Odume had six points. Jarvis and Leana Heitmann led CBA with 14 points apiece.Ludden lost again on Thursday to Mekeel Christian 73-43, leaving the Gaelic Knights to finish its regular season at 10-10 as it would await its Class A sectional playoff seeding.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story center_img Tags: basketballBishop Luddenlast_img read more

Quarterbacks Edouard, Long prepare to compete at Syracuse next fall

first_img Published on November 11, 2013 at 9:24 pm Contact Jesse: [email protected] | @dougherty_jesse When A.J. Long was in eighth grade, his dad put four numbers on the wall in their basement, each a statistical goal for his son.9,853 passing yards — the Pennsylvania state passing record at the time. 100 passing touchdowns. 2,000 rushing yards. 40 rushing touchdowns.Although the sheets on the wall didn’t travel with Long to Tennessee, where he is finishing his high school career at Friendship Christian School, he’s surpassed each mark.More than 10,000 passing yards. 125 passing touchdowns. Close to 2,300 rushing yards. Just more than 40 rushing touchdowns.He’s eclipsed each milestone and set his sites on his next goal. Once he’s finished high school football, Long has ambitions to leapfrog Terrel Hunt, Mitch Kimble and Austin Wilson, and start for the Orange as a freshman next fall.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“If I do all that I need to do, I can’t see myself not starting next year,” Long said.But he won’t be the only first-year quarterback trying to do so.On Oct. 20, three-star recruit Alin Edouard joined Long as the second quarterback to verbally commit to the Orange for 2014 after de-committing from Miami (Fla.) on Sept. 1. While the two incoming freshmen sit behind Hunt, Kimble and Wilson on the Orange’s preconceived 2014 depth chart, they’re ready to challenge anyone, including each other, for the starting spot.“Competition is everything,” Edouard said. “Everywhere you go there is going to be competition so I’m excited for it, and I’m going to do what I got to do.”For more than seven months, Long was the only quarterback heading to Syracuse in 2014.Long verbally committed last March while Edouard, a Miami native, was in heavy talks with Miami and considering offers from Penn State, Tennessee and Nebraska, among other schools.But after committing then wavering throughout the summer, Edouard de-committed from the Hurricanes because he didn’t feel like one of Miami’s top priorities and “had never heard of a recruiting class with three quarterbacks.”Seven weeks later, he opted to give Syracuse a recruiting class with two.“Syracuse was one school that offered me and stuck with me and tried to draw me away from Miami,” Edouard said. “I was comfortable and Coach (George) McDonald has been with me since day one, so that made my decision easy.”Now the Orange is going to welcome two signal callers that hardly differ.Long and Edouard are both dual-threat quarterbacks with scrambling ability, strong arms and a high football IQ. Long is 6 feet 2 inches tall and 190 pounds. Edouard is 6 feet 2 inches tall and 181 pounds. And they each see getting stronger as the next step of their development.“I think skill wise everything is in place,” Long said. “I know Coach (Will) Hicks turns boys into men in the weight room, and I need that when I get to Syracuse.”Said Edouard: “I just need to get in the weight room and get bigger, that’s my main concern right now.”Both quarterbacks are confident they could start for the Orange right away, but will each need to make a critical decision before even stepping on the practice field.Long wears No. 3. It’s the number his father wore in the Marine Corps, but also the number Kimble wears. So he plans to switch to No. 4 because of “the legend of 44 in Syracuse.”Edouard has the same problem. He has worn No. 10 his whole life, but that’s Hunt’s number. After saying he hopes Hunt will give it up through uncontrollable laughter, Edouard listed Nos. 6, 11 and 4 as other options.As part of the bigger picture, Long and Edouard are already eyeing the same number. Once they sort that out, the real competition will begin.“I haven’t seen much film but they’re both extremely talented quarterbacks,” said Rodney Williams, a safety committed to SU for 2014. “They’re going to bring out the best in each other.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
