Widespread Panic Resurrects “Thin Air (Smells Like Mississippi)” At Night 2 In Mississippi [Videos]

For the second and final night of Panic’s two-night run in Brandon, Mississippi, the band delivered such a rockin’ show that the few in attendance that did not already have Red Rocks tickets, scrambled to purchase plane tickets and three-day admissions for the upcoming Colorado run.The six kings of swampadelic rock and roll opened their first set with the crowd-favorite “Stop-Go, the seventh song from their debut album Space Wrangler. The audience responded with a welcoming noise that was louder than a cannon’s blast. Dave Schools dug deep rhythmic entrenchments, which echoed euphonic reverberations to the tune that was teased the night prior. The unpredictable John Bell improvised a rare “That Don’t Make it Junk” rap into the lyrics and “strutted and crowed, along the way.”Widespread was in the midst of dismantling Van Morrison’s song “And It Stoned Me” down to the very nuts and bolts of the framework as the dark skies loomed ominously, threatening rain. “All Time Low” tumbled like a barrel off the album Til’ the Medicine Takes, which was re-released as a vinyl in celebration of its 20th anniversary earlier this year.Challenging the sky once more, Panic re-awakened the legend of “Hatfield”, who with the help of his brother cooked up rain for the drought-stricken city of Los Angeles for a compensatory sum of $10,000. JB took on a succinct rap which began with Charlie Hatfield’s German mama, and continuing down unforeseen paths with vivid descriptions and quick-witted improvisation.Widespread Panic – “Hatfield”[Video: Drew Derden]After a short section of bass fiddling, “Papa Johnny Road” was unearthed for the first time since Panic En La Playa Ocho in Mexico. To follow the cut from 2003’s Ball, Widespread Panic performed their newly-written “Sundown Betty”, which has been played ten times since the song’s debut at Panic En La Playa 7 in 2018. A pair of Bloodkin covers blazed the way into the first set with the “Who Do You Belong To?” leading into the slower “Can’t Get High.” Widespread continues to pay respect to Danny Hutchens and Eric Carter of Bloodkin, as fellow brothers and representatives of the jam scene of Athens, Georgia.To round out the set, Widespread returned to Ball to appropriately bust-out the long-lost “Thin Air (Smells like Mississippi)”. The tune was glorified in the exuberant Night of Joy album with horn accompaniment provided by The Dirty Dozen Brass Band. It was the first time that the song was performed since the Red Rocks run in the summer of 2014, as well as the first time played with Duane Trucks on drums. Naturally, the audience’s appreciation was uproarious.Dave Schools ran rampant with his bass guitar throughout and leading into the calamitous “Imitation Leather Shoes” to finish off the first set. The heavy song was written and influenced by Franz Kafka’s supernaturally absurd short story “The Metamorphisis”, in which the main character awakens to find himself transformed into a giant insect. “Imitation” featured its distinctive triad of bass notes with a slight pause between the first consecutive pair and the heavily, resounding note that follows.Following a short setbreak, Widespread returned to play a loose second set with 84 minutes divided between seven songs and a substantial drum section. Kicking it off, the band sauntered back on stage and JB stepped up to the mic introducing a boisterous “Junior” with the quip, “Here’s one to help the babies sleep.” The tune “was written by mixing several of Junior Kimbrough’s songs, who shared a record label with JoJo Hermann at Fat Possum Records. Even in the song’s condensed format, Jimmy Herring still managed to find time to casually dish out some lightning fast solos between JB’s declarations of love.As the set was getting savory, the audience gobbled up a hearty serving of “Ribs and Whiskey” slathered in Panic’s own smokey flavored jam-sauce. JB changed tones from creepy and voyeuristic to the desperation of a man dying of thirst in the desert for a cutting rendition of Murray McLaughlan’s “Honky Red.”The crowd favorites kept pouring over this bountiful waterfall as “Surprise Valley” soared for an incredible 20-minutes, building up slowly and carefully until culminating into a monstrous explosion of energy. “Airplane” taxied down the runway for six minutes before “The Take-Off Jam” doubled the length of the song and quintupled the intensity and pace.The band members took a quick breather allowing just Duane Trucks and Sunny Ortiz to percolate swinging rhythms and conduct a lengthy percussive battle. The guys returned to their positions as JoJo’s piano introduced a monumental “Bust It Big”, which was also featured on the aforementioned Night of Joy album. JoJo’s vocals and piano and Herring’s guitar electrically charge the surrounding atmosphere by using the same electrostatic manipulation techniques as Dr. Frankenstein.Widespread Panic – “Drums”[Video: Ward Johnson]To conclude the second set, John Bell mesmerized throughout a sizzling performance of Neil Young’s “Last Dance.” The lyrics were switched in which “the orange juice is hot / the coffee cup is cold!” adding a surreal element to the already dream-like song.Widespread Panic encored with a heart-wrenching “Nobody’s Loss” which has rarely surfaced more than twice a year in recent times. JoJo led the band through the cut from Til the Medicine Takes with his voice and forlorn piano. Finishing off the two-night run in Mississippi, Panic paid tribute to late Southern rocker Tom Petty with one last romp through “You Wreck Me.”Widespread Panic – “You Wreck Me”last_img read more

Wesley Snipes says he was heartbroken when he lost out to Eric La Salle in the original ‘Coming to America’

first_imgABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — Ahead of the highly anticipated Coming to America sequel, Wesley Snipes is sharing some little-known details about his first encounter with the 1988 classic film comedy.In a chat posted on Snipes’ Instagram, the actor tells his fellow Dolemite Is My Name cast members, including Eddie Murphy, that he was upset when he lost out to Eriq La Salle for the role of Darryl Jenks, the heir to the Soul Glo empire, in the film.“I auditioned for Coming to America and I remember being so sad,” Snipes says. “I really wanted to be in the movie. I wanted to work with them. I was really contemplating what my purpose in life was after losing that to Eriq La Salle.”After they all laughed, Murphy offered an explanation.“Our look was too close,” Murphy interjected. “You actually look more African than me.”Snipes then joked that Murphy should have told him this before.“That would’ve healed me,” Snipes said. “I was in the bathroom ‘Why am I even doing this, man? I’m not gon’ quit. They not gon’ break me down, man.’”However, Murphy notes that the opportunity ended up coming “full circle,” with Snipes now officially in the film’s sequel.“Now [Wesley] is playing the General Izzi, the villain… crushing it,” Murphy said. “Eriq is too light-skinned to play that.”La Salle recently explained why wouldn’t be returning to the Coming to America sequel, telling the Grio, “I’m a little busy right now with this show,” referring to being an executive producer and director for hit shows like NBC’s Law & Order: SVU and Chicago P.D.Coming 2 America is set to hit theaters August 7, 2020.

Paul Conroy wins GAA/GPA Opel Player of the Month Award

first_imgPaul Conroy (Galway) and Austin Gleeson (Waterford) have been named the GAA/GPA Opel Players of the Month for June in football and hurling respectively. The players, both of whom were pivotal in leading their counties to provincial finals, saw off stiff competition to claim the accolades, awarded to them by the inter-county playing body. A man-of-the-match semi-final display against Clare from the talented Austin Gleeson helped secure a Munster final place for the Déise. The Mount Sion star produced an outstanding performance scoring six points as his side avenged their League final replay defeat to the same opposition. After a disappointing final, however, Waterford will be bidding to reignite their championship campaign against Wexford in the All-Ireland quarter-final on the 24th July.Commenting on the announcement, Dave Sheeran, Managing Director Opel Ireland said: “After a memorable month of displays by both Galway and Waterford, we are delighted to reward Paul and Austin with the Opel Player of the Month awards for June.  Both are particularly deserving of the accolade, having put in outstanding performances for their respective counties.  As proud partners of the GAA and GPA, we look forward to another exciting All-Ireland series and wish both players the very best of luck in the weeks ahead.”Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael Aogán Ó Fearghail continued: “Congratulations to Paul and Austin on being honoured with this award – an accolade made all the more significant by the fact that they have been chosen by their peers. They are deserving winners and both embody the spirit of what an Opel GAA GPA All-Star is about: which is to possess that something extra special capable of shaping the outcome of a game. We’ve enjoyed watching their individual flair light up their exploits for the Galway footballers and Waterford hurlers and look forward to seeing more of the same in their Championship battles ahead.” Paul Conroy delivered a commanding midfield performance against Mayo last month, a display recognised by his fellow players and one that helped deny Galway’s fiercest rivals the opportunity of a sixth successive Connacht SFC title. The Tribesmen will once again bid to claim the crown in Sunday’s final replay with Roscommon. Speaking about the Award winners, Dessie Farrell, Chief Executive of the GPA added: “Congratulations to Paul and Austin on their contributions to their respective counties’ successes last month. Both players were pivotal in those victories for Galway and Waterford and both will once again play vital roles in the provincial final and All-Ireland quarter-final challenges that lie ahead. Thanks to the players who selected the winners, to the nomination group who compiled the shortlist and to Opel for their continued support for the GAA/GPA All-Stars Awards scheme.” print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more
