Doom Flamingo Announces Official Umphrey’s McGee Brooklyn Steel Afterparty At Brooklyn Bowl

first_imgDoom Flamingo, the modern synth-wave side project of Umphrey’s McGee bassist Ryan Stasik, will headline an official afterparty at Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday, February 16th, 2019 following the last of three Umphrey’s shows at Brooklyn Steel. The Doom Flamingo afterparty will take begin just before midnight, giving fans more than enough time to take the short subway ride from Brooklyn Steel to Brooklyn Bowl in time to catch the late-night festivities.The six-piece Doom Flamingo initially formed earlier this year as a result of Stasik helping to put together a group of highly sought-after musicians from the Charleston, South Carolina music scene. Members of the retro rock band include Stasik, Michael Quinn saxophone, Ross Bogan on keys, Stuart White on drums, Thomas Kenney on guitar, and Kanika Moore on vocals. The band has since begun releasing their own original music and is also scheduled to play an official after-show at Variety Playhouse in Atlanta on December 28th during the upcoming Umphrey’s McGee New Year’s Eve run.PREMIERE: Doom Flamingo, Side Project Of UM’s Ryan Stasik, Releases ’80s-Flavored, Synth-Heavy Track, “F-16”Perhaps the best description of the retro rock project comes from the band itself, which state on their website that their music can be thought of as “Top Gun guitar riffs and Miami Beach poolside lounge-vibes, [which are] all at once contrasted with eerie darksynth soundscapes reminiscent of old John Carpenter films.”While Doom Flamingo may still be a relatively new project, fans can tune into some of their already impressive chemistry with the entertaining animated video for “Runaway” below:Doom Flamingo – “Runaway” – Official Video[Video: Doom Flamingo]Tickets for the Brooklyn Doom Flamingo UM afterparty go on sale starting this Friday, December 7th, at 10 a.m. EST, and can be purchased on the band’s website.last_img read more

U.S. Ambassador in Paraguay Asks for Punishment for “All Acts of Terrorism”

first_imgBy Dialogo May 14, 2010 The U.S. ambassador in Paraguay, Liliana Ayalde, urged local authorities to punish “the acts of terrorism” of the Paraguayan People’s Army (EPP), a leftist radical organization that has claimed responsibility for a number of kidnappings and murders. “All acts of terrorism should be punished in Paraguay,” the diplomat said, speaking to the 9.70 AM radio station after attending the presentation of a plan to aid rural producers with scarce resources in the department of San Pedro (in northern Paraguay) with backing from the United States. She was referring to the incursions of the EPP, an armed group that has claimed responsibility for two kidnappings in two years and for the murder of four police slightly less than a month ago, and to which kidnappings and bomb attacks have been attributed. The most recent occurrence caused Fernando Lugo’s administration to declare a thirty-day state of emergency in five departments in northern Paraguay at the end of April. “All attacks on people’s lives and on private property should be repudiated,” Ayalde said.last_img read more

Rematch 3: Godfred Donsah not scared of familiar Mali threat

first_imgMali beat Ghana 1-0 in the Group stages while Ghana revenged by beating them 3-1 to win bronze at the African Youth Championship.– “At the African Youth Championship, they defeated us in the group stages and we also beat them in the third place off game. Now we need to show them that we are better than them and we will approach the game with all seriousness.” Familiar breeds contempt.But it doesn’t breed fear for Ghana U20 midfielder Godfred Donsah, who says they are very capable of beating Mali in the next stage of the ongoing Fifa U20 World Cup in New Zealand. Midfielder Donsah is anticipating a difficult game but believes they can edge the Malians out. The game between Ghana and Mali will be the third time the two sides will be meeting this year after playing at the African Youth Championship in Senegal last March. The Black Satellites have been handed a tough draw as they face Mali in the round of 16 knock-out stage. Coach Sellas Tetteh and his side finished top of Group B ahead of Austria as they eliminated six-time champions Argentina and Panama. “The match against Mali will be difficult but the most important thing is to grab the win which will see us through to the next stage of the competition. I have heard a lot about this fixture and that is not a surprise to me because the two side are playing very well in the competition.”last_img read more

Environment NJ to Discuss Water Report Oct. 22 at BCC

first_imgLINCROFT – Doug O’Malley, interim executive director of Environment New Jersey, will discuss his organization’s recent report on New Jersey’s deteriorating water quality at 6:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 22, at Brookdale Com­munity College’s Warner Student Life Center.The meeting is open to the public, the college’s students, and members of the N.J. Friends of Clearwater and the Jersey Shore (Monmouth) Group of the Sierra Club.O’Malley will explain how the state legislature’s actions have contributed to the pollution and what regulatory actions should be taken to reverse this deterioration. In particular, O’Malley will discuss Raritan River and Bay, the Navesink and Shrews­bury Rivers, and Barnegat Bay. Only one creek, originating in a northwestern state park, is pollution-free. All of the state’s other bodies of water are polluted.In the past few years, the state legislature has loosened a number of state Department of Environ­mental regulations on water quality and pollution controls. In opposition, environmentalists argue that, given the state’s pollution problems, controls should be stricter.The DEP’s commissioner, Bob Martin, has said he will include economic considerations in addition to environmental rules when assessing developers’ applications. Last month, Gov. Christie vetoed a bipartisan bill that would have blocked the transport and treatment of controversial gas “fracking” wastewater generated from both in-state and out-of-state gas exploration.O’Malley’s presentation is hosted by Brookdale Com­munity College’s Environ­mental Club to encourage BCC students to be involved in statewide and national debates on the importance of strong environmental regulations.During the Lincroft meeting, a cash buffet begins at 6 p.m. and O’Malley’s presentation begins at 6:30 p.m.last_img read more

He had like an electrolyte imbalance, so it was disappointing to go there and not run better than that.“But he’s been training forwardly since he came home and we’re looking forward to getting a good race in him. Victor (Espinoza) will ride him back and we are adding blinkers.”Previously trained by Larry Jones, Hard Aces has a 5-3-6 record from 21 starts with earnings of $268,145.

TrainerSts1st2nd3rdWin%Money Won YOUNG ALL ‘AMERICAN’ IN TRIPLE CROWN PURSUITGary Young has been on American Pharoah’s bandwagon from the get-go, andwith a Triple Crown in close proximity, the private clocker isn’t about to bail out now.He knows it won’t be easy, however. There have been 13 horses that attempted to capture racing’s most elusive prize since Affirmed was the last to do it in 1978. All have failed.There are reasons, be they legitimate or theoretical.“This is going to be Pharoah’s fourth race in eight weeks and it’s going to be a mile and a half,” said Young, a keen and respected observer of the Thoroughbred for 35 years.“If they’re ever going to beat him, it’s going to be this race. I think he’s the best horse in this crop by more than a little bit, and I think he’s the best horse I’ve seen in a while. Obviously, I’ve been on record as saying that.“He’s still got to prove that, but as far as horses going through the Triple Crown, I think he’s the best I’ve seen in some time.“Looking at the race, he’s going to be in front. The big question is which one of the main contenders is going to be the first one to go after him? Do you want to be the first one to take him on? You’d rather be the second or third after someone else has softened him up.“I respect Materiality, I respect Keen Ice. If you watch Keen Ice’s race in the (Kentucky) Derby, when everyone else was shoving for all they were worth at the three-eighths pole, he was passing horses under a pull and he had to steady for more than an eighth of a mile (eventually finishing seventh, beaten nine lengths by American Pharoah, who won by a length). I respect those horses, but I think Pharoah’s the best horse.”That said, should Pharoah do it, would it give racing a welcome bump?“Would it help? Yeah,” Young opined. “But there is still going to be trouble filling entries and there’s still going to be in-fighting among different factions in racing.“There have been 13 horses that have attempted to win the Triple Crown since Affirmed in 1978, and there were people in the business who questioned whether they were worthy of winning it.“As far as talent, I don’t think anyone really questions whether American Pharoah is worthy of being a Triple Crown winner.“Is he going to do it? I happen to think he will. I acknowledge that (winning) four races in eight weeks is not an easy thing, and a mile and a half has become an antiquated distance on the main track, but if he breaks and makes the lead and relaxes like I think he will, when they go after him and try to tackle him at the half-mile pole, they better be tied on.” -30- JockeyMts1st2nd3rdWin%Money Won William Spawr1632219%$89,840 Flavien Prat681515322%$895,700 Mike Smith2556220%$495,690 SANTA ANITA STATISTICS Victor Espinoza1842322%$188,350 Mark Glatt3145513%$204,494 Tiago Pereira3167419%$270,670 Peter Eurton2432513%$213,296 John Sadler3857513%$217,278 Mike Puype3547611%$333,530 Dan Hendricks1032030%$110,140 Ricky Agarie1231325%$110,720 Vann Belvoir2735411%$124,390 Doug O’Neill571012618%$468,748last_img read more
