Phish Debuts New Song, Rocks Hard For Klipsch Music Center Performance

first_imgLoad remaining images Phish continued their smoking hot tour with a stop at the Klipsch Music Center in Noblesville, IN, playing a great Sunday show for those who made the trip. Though the show was delayed by the rain, the band more than made up for it, ringing truth in the old adage, “Never miss a Sunday show.”The first set started with a surprising “My Friend, My Friend,” an unusual choice for the opener. The song hasn’t played in that position since 2003, but the band navigated the fun composition with a passion. From there, the band quickly kept the energy rocking with a jamming “Kill Devil Falls.” The song always rips, and Trey Anastasio was on fire throughout.From there, the band got into a funky “Camel Walk,” before bringing the fans into “A Song I Heard The Ocean Sing.” A fun reference to the storms that delayed the show’s start, Phish took the jam into dark waters before rocking the ending. From there, it was Mike Gordon who took the lead on “Poor Heart,” bringing the bluegrassy tune out for its first appearance in 2016. That groove segued into “Tube,” which always brings the energy up, keeping the crowd rocking.“Halley’s Comet” came next, enticing the fans to sing along as the band led the carefree tune. Where “Comet” was lighthearted, “Maze” brought the intensity, capturing hold and unleashing its enchanting spell. Page McConnell really fueled the song’s ascending improvisational moments, taking everyone on a musical journey. He continued to take the spotlight for “Lawn Boy,” thanking the crowd and singing his heart out on the title track of Phish’s 1990 release.The band then took an opportunity to try out a new song, titled “Breath and Burning.” The slower song was a band debut, destined for the new album. From there, Phish took the energy up with “Saw It Again,” before finding “Theme From The Bottom” and closing out the first set with a funk laden “First Tube.” It was a great set, highlighted by tight musicianship.The second set was absolutely raging, starting with a well-executed “Punch You In The Eye” before grooving straight into the funk number “Back On The Train.” The upbeat jam heated up Klipsch with a vengeance, getting fans ready for what would come next. Phish then brought an onslaught of jamming, unleashing a soaring “Light” that segued seamlessly into the TV On The Radio cover, “Golden Age.” That funky tune rocked hard, and the energy kept on when Gordon started the bass line for Stevie Wonder’s “Boogie On Reggae Woman.”The song funked hard, raging for a rhythmic boogie down jam that eventually wound down, finding its way into “Wingsuit.” The Fuego song has a slower tempo, and Anastasio hit the Gilmour-esque guitar solo majestically. The band then played their song “Shade,” a ballad song that was debuted in 2015. The cool down moment set the stage nicely for the classic rocker, “Possum.” The bluesy number saw some great work from Jon Fishman, who leads the build up and jam perfectly in the song.After a brief pause, the band finished up the show with their cover of Velvet Underground’s “Rock And Roll.” The energetic song brought the house down, as Phish bid their fans a fond farewell to close out a great performance.Check out the full setlist, below.Setlist: Phish at Klipsch Music Center, Noblesville, IN – 6/26/16Set 1: My Friend, My Friend, Kill Devil Falls, Camel Walk, A Song I Heard the Ocean Sing, Poor Heart > Tube, Halley’s Comet > Maze, Lawn Boy, Breath and Burning[1], Saw It Again, Theme From the Bottom > First TubeSet 2: Punch You In the Eye > Back on the Train, Light > Golden Age -> Boogie On Reggae Woman, Wingsuit > Shade, PossumEncore: Rock and Roll[1] DebutNotes: This show featured the debut of Breath and BurningImages courtesy of Phierce Photo, check out a full gallery below.last_img read more

Women of Troy fall to Huskies on the road

first_imgA strong offensive effort would stunt the USC women’s basketball team (15-13, 7-10 Pac-12) in their fight against the Washington Huskies(21-8, 10-7 Pac-12). The Women of Troy lost 60-48, dominated by three players in the Huskies arsenal. The women of Troy would endure the next 40-minute contest without senior forward Alexyz Vaioletama, who did not play because of an injury.“It’s hard when you don’t have your go-to players in the line up, but I really thought we fought hard,” head coach Cynthia Cooper-Dyke said. “We did some really good things offensively and defensively, we just really couldn’t get into an offensive rhythm consistently throughout the game.”Senior forward Kaneisha Horn lead the Women of Troy in scoring with 13 points and nine rebounds. Sophomore guard Jordan Adams also added 12 points and nine rebounds to the Trojan cause.Scoring was slow for both teams in the first half. The Women of Troy shot at 32 percent to the Huskies 37 percent. Early on the game, the Women of Troy and the Huskies kept the game close. Freshmen guard Courtney Jaco and junior guard Brianna Barrett launched two shots behind the arc, keeping their deficit small.“We had a few issues with getting ourselves organized; I think we took some quick shots,” said Adams. “I felt we played really good defense, we made them shoot contesting shots for most of their possessions.”Talia Walton had a strong offensive presence with 6 points in the first 10 minutes. Adams responded by securing the lead with field goals.USC hit a dry spell deep in the half, allowing the Huskies to make up for lost time. The efforts of Kelsey Plum and Jazmine Davis would put USC at a disadvantage. Horn would break the silence with a field goal for the Trojans after almost four minutes of not scoring.Barrett kept the offense rolling with a layup and a free throw. However, this was not enough to overpower Washington.Neither teams were able to score for two minutes. After a flurry of rebounds and missed shots, Horn hit a successful jumper. Freshmen forward Amy Okonkwo then bumped the Women of Troy pass Washington after a trip to the line.The half ended with USC having a one-point lead and collected more blocks and assists than the Huskies.At the beginning of the second half, USC racked up five points in the first five minutes.Freshmen guards MacKenzie Calvert and Jaco would grab an assist each. Plum would put pressure on the Trojan defense, finding ways to score.“Mostly we wanted to play fast and get out on the break,” said Okonkwo. “I feel like we need to execute more and play defense better, play more defense.”After being tied at 30 USC’s offense slowed down while the Huskies began hitting shots. Plum would contribute to the Huskies offense while Horn continued to keep USC in the game.With nine minutes left in regulation, the Huskies held an 11-point lead and would keep the Women of Troy at a distance.The Women of Troy will battle against the Washington State Cougars on Saturday at 3 p.m. in their last game of the regular season.last_img read more

Pakistan star Shoaib Malik gunning for revenge against India

first_imgPakistan’s experienced all-rounder Shoaib Malik has said that he and his teammates are keen to set up a rematch with India in the final of the Asia Cup tournament in Bangladesh.Malik said that they had lost to India in the group match on Saturday since the team had failed to adapt to the conditions at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium. (Asia Cup: Shoaib Malik smashes 63 as Paksitan overcome spirited UAE) “I think we failed to read the pitch and conditions properly against India and instead of adapting ourselves we committed hari kari by trying to play overly attacking shots,” he said.The former Pakistan captain said everyone in the team was disappointed by the defeat but were now also more intent on winning matches to qualify for the final.”We want to play India in the final again and we know we can do well against them. It is all a matter of just adapting to the different conditions here,” Malik added. (India will be tough to beat in World T20: Misbah-ul-Haq) He said that all the seniors in the side realised how important it was for them to fire on all cylinders now in the Asia Cup.”We all know just how disappointing the defeat to India must have been to our supporters back home. We know how much emotions are involved in a match with India and we would like to make amends.”Malik said Pakistan’s biggest strength was it had good pace and spin bowlers and the batsmen just needed to put their heads down and manage a fighting total.advertisement”I thought we also fought hard against India and Aamir’s spell was magnificent. The rest of the pace bowlers are also in good form so we are looking at a comeback in this tournament.”Malik refused to criticise the pitches insisting that as professional cricketers teams had to learn to adapt to different conditions.last_img read more
