Umphrey’s McGee Christens New Madison Venue, The Sylvee, With SunSquabi [Photo/Video]

first_imgLoad remaining images Photo: Daniel Ojeda As owners to keys of the city, frequent visiting neighbors from the south, and masterminds behind several epic and historic concerts played in Madison, Wisconsin, Umphrey’s McGee did something that few bands get the privilege of doing when playing in Madison—they christened a brand-spankin’-new venue. The newly constructed Sylvee, barely a week old, can now be added to the list of 40-plus concerts Umphrey’s McGee has played in Madison over their twenty-year career.Colorado jamtronica act Sunsquabi opened the show. Although the crowd slowly trickled in over the course of their set, they made sure to put on a good show for those who were in attendance. By the time Umphrey’s took the stage to open the show with “Tango Mike”, the audience has filled up. Interestingly enough, the show featured a lot more instrumentals like “Miss Tinkle’s Overture”, “Blue Echo,” “Tribute to the Spinal Shaft”, “Triple Wide”, and “Wizard Burial Ground” than songs than lead vocalist Brendan Bayliss actually sings. His voice shined on “Words” and “Much Obliged,” but apart from those he wasn’t featured heavily in the mix.“Tango Mike”The copious amount of instrumentals allowed for the band to do plenty of jamming. “Blue Echo”, a song that is always stretched out, featured some of the tastiest improvisation of the night. The second set had a pretty neat “Much Obliged” that went in a couple distinct directions but eventually segued into the speed metal of “Wizard Burial Ground.” It was a fun transistion, especially considering how different the two songs are. The band capped the night off with a fun but straight-forward cover of the Pink Floyd classic “Breathe”, which had both the dub portion and the regular portion. Next up, Umphrey’s moves onto Chicago for the third and final night of the Big Weekend event, which spans multiple venues throughout the city.You can check out a gallery of photos from Umphrey’s McGee’s show last night at Madison, Wisconsin’s newly opened Sylvee below, courtesy of Daniel Ojeda.Setlist: Umphrey’s McGee | The Sylvee | Madison, WI | 10/5/2018Set I (8:16): Tango Mike > Miss Tinkle’s Overture, Words -> Blue Echo > What We Could Get, Tribute to the Spinal Shaft > Push and Pull, JaJunk (9:30)Set II (10:02): Looks, The Triple Wide > Daffodils, It Doesn’t Matter [1] > Much Obliged [2] > Wizard Burial Ground (11:10)E (11:15): Breathe [3] (11:24)[1] Proverbial jam[2] unfinished[3] Dub VersionUmphrey’s McGee | The Sylvee | Madison, WI | 10/5/2018 | Photo: Daniel Ojedalast_img read more

Public Hearing Scheduled On Agreement Between County, Aviation Company

first_imgImage by Justin Gould / WNY News Now.MAYVILLE – A public hearing to discuss a recent agreement between an aviation company and the Chautauqua County Executive’s Office will take place on Sept. 23 before the Chautauqua County Legislature meeting. The agreement originally called for Chase Aviation Company, LLC. to pay $500 a month from October until September 30, 2024, according to the resolution that was supposed to be voted on by the Chautauqua County Legislature’s Public Facilities Committee Monday. However, the committee amended the resolution to a two-year agreement, provided the meeting was agreed to and that the full Legislature passed the agreement.Officials say the agreement was shorted because Chase Aviation wants to move long-term into a hanger that isn’t currently available because it is being renovated. The hanger is reportedly scheduled to be ready in 2022.The County reportedly received and accepted a Letter of Intent from Chase Aviation Company, LLC conveying its desire and intention to lease office facilities at the Jamestown Airport for the purpose of engaging in aircraft brokerage and lease management services. The agreement is for the lease of Terminal Building Office No. 46 for the specific purposes of aircraft brokerage, lease management, and authorized aviation activities for FAA-funded and regulated public airports. In February, Centric Aviation took over operation of all core flight-line services at both the Jamestown and Dunkirk airports under separate lease-operating agreements signed with the County.Under those agreements, the county receives a fixed monthly rental fee as well as a percentage of gross revenues generated from fuel sales, aircraft de-icing and other services.

Iowa State leaders talk about UI Marching Band controversy (audio)

first_imgAMES — Iowa State University president Wendy Wintersteen and Athletic Director Jamie Pollard Tuesday addressed the ongoing controversy after members of the University of Iowa band said they were assaulted after the game in Ames September 14th.Wintersteen says Iowa State does not have a crowd control problem. “We have great fans who come to Jack Trice,” Wintersteen says, “I would say that 98 percent of our fans are behaving. They’re doing what we expect them to do — and it’s a few of our fans who have decided to behave inappropriately. And so we are going to work with president Harreld and president Nook to think how we can change that.”Wintersteen says she will work with University of Iowa president Bruce Harreld to make sure the series continues. “At the same time we can’t and we haven’t ignored the actions that were reported after the game. We are saddened and concerned by the reports that some members of the Iowa band were mistreated or harmed during their visit to our campus,” Wintersteen says.Cyclone Athletic Director Pollard says they received a list of five incidents last week from Iowa, including one that a band member who was injured. He says a member of the band who was carrying a ladder suffered broken ribs after being shoved and falling on the ladder as the band member exited the field.Pollard says the problem started when the Iowa band took an exit out of the stadium other than the one recommended. “The Iowa Marching Band marched in formation into the back of that crowd and essentially forced their way through that crowd — there was no place for anybody to move to,” according to Pollard.ISU Police Chief Michael Newton says they have not heard from any of the Iowa Band members who were victims of alleged abuse. “We in law enforce find it very difficult to actually launch an investigation when there are no complainants who come forward. So that does challenge us in this process at this time,” Newton says. ” We can’t investigate from media reports, we can’t investigate from social media reports.”The news conference in Ames comes after U-I president Harreld told the student newspaper he does not want the series to continue until they can work out issues with the security and safety of everyone. Harreld did say he believes they can work it out.Audio: ISU News Conference. 40 minuteslast_img read more
