first_imgLoad remaining images Last night, The Disco Biscuits finished their three-night Colorado run with their second of two shows at Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium (following a Thursday performance at Boulder’s Fox Theatre). The band got started with the surprises right off the bat with “Bionic Helix”, a song comprised of a jam that used to appear in “Helicopters” in the band’s early days. That led right into a bust-out of “The Big Happy”, which in turn moved into “I Remember When” without missing a beat. After “House Dog Party Favor”, a well-played “Spectacle” moved into a set-closing “I-Man”, undoubtedly a highlight of the old school first set.The Disco Biscuits Get Trancey To Kick Off 2-Night Denver Run [Full Show Video/Photo]Disco Biscuits Show Love To Fans With 49-Minute Jam, “Naeba” Bustout, & Punk Encore [Full Show Video]The second set kicked off with an extended jam sandwich (though not as extended as the nearly hour-long jam that opened set two on Thursday), as the band rode heavy techno grooves through “Crickets”, into the 2nd “Lunar Pursuit” this year, and back out into “Crickets” to the delight of the packed house. The set only got stranger from there, as Jon “Barber” Gutwillig led the band through an out-of-left-field cover of “Same Ol’ G” by 90’s R&B star Ginuwine. Barber took the opportunity to play into a long-running joke with the band’s friends in Umphrey’s McGee. changing some lyrics to reference the incident when he fell asleep backstage at a UM show, and a photo of him was used for the Umphrey’s laminates on their next tour.Joel Cummins Talks Umphrey’s/Biscuits Prank War And Post-World Series Hang With The CubsThe Disco Biscuits’ Aron Magner Talks Prank War With Umphrey’s, Spotify, And BCAThe band ended their run with a fittingly over-the-top closing segment, as fake snow machines and blue lasers met to fantastic effect during “Floes” before a “Spraypaint” tease-filled cover of Pink Floyd‘s “Run Like Hell” closed the show in appropriately thrilling fashion. Finally, the Biscuits delivered one last surprise–a rare cover of the towering “In The Hall of the Mountain King”, Edvard Greig‘s famous late 1800’s orchestral composition, their first rendition of the piece since 7/10/04 (643 shows).SETLIST: The Disco Biscuits | The Fillmore Auditorium | Denver, CO | 11/18/17Set 1: Bionic Helix > Big Happy > I Remember When, House Dog Party Favor, Spectacle, I-ManSet 2: Crickets > Lunar Pursuit > Crickets > Same Ol G > Floes, Run Like HellEncore: In the Hall of the Mountain King[Cover photo via Dave Vann]The Disco Biscuits | The Fillmore Auditorium | Denver, CO | 11/18/17 | Photos by Dave Vannlast_img read more

Spring semester to begin Jan. 25

first_imgSpring classes will begin on Jan. 25, 2021 and end April 28, as previously announced, FAS Edgerley Family Dean Claudine Gay confirmed today in a message to faculty and staff. But spring break will be reimagined in a continued effort to minimize student travel off campus to help control COVID-19. It will be replaced, instead, with five separate days off on a biweekly basis.“(W)e anticipate that public health considerations will require us to minimize travel for our community in residence in order to manage the transmission of the virus on campus and protect our academic enterprise from disruption. This schedule supports that approach, while still recognizing the need for downtime (and time away from a screen) during the term,” Gay said.Plans about which cohort(s) of undergraduate students will be invited to campus for the spring semester will be announced in early December when additional information about move-in and -out options will also be shared. Gay also acknowledged that departments are scenario planning for disruptions to lab research should the pandemic continue to surge in Massachusetts.“Our spring decision must include robust contingency planning that enables us to respond quickly to changing conditions in order to protect the health and safety of our community and limit disruption to our academic activities,” Gay said.last_img read more

Guinazu signs Munster deal

first_img “We need to hit the ground running this season and to do this we need to have a full complement of players available to us,” said Munster head coach Anthony Foley. “We have short-term setbacks with Niall Scannell rehabbing from wrist injury and Damien Varley managing a foot injury, but with Sherry ruled out until next year it is great that we can call on the services of an experienced, versatile player such as Eusebio. “His availability will certainly help us get through the opening period of the season.” The 32-year-old joins the Guinness Pro12 province after two seasons at Bath, following stints at Biarritz, Toulouse and the Stormers. The 36-cap front-rower will ease Munster’s hooker shortage with Sherry recovering from shoulder surgery. Argentina hooker Eusebio Guinazu has signed for Munster on a four-month deal to offset Mike Sherry’s long-term shoulder injury.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
