The Strokes Bring Bust-Outs, Three Song Debuts To The Capitol Theatre [Review]

first_imgCheck out the full setlist below.Edit this setlist | More The Strokes setlists The Strokes returned to The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY last night, performing a last minute warm-up show in advance of their headlining performance at Governors Ball this Friday. The reclusive New York rockers boasted an impressive light show that left them silhouetted for the majority of the performance. While they spent most of the night in the shadows, The Strokes were showered with love from their rabid fans from the moment they took the stage, and they returned the favor with a wild, varied setlist that featured several bust outs and the live debut of all three songs from their new Future Present Past EP.The Strokes began the show with a combo of songs from their debut record Is This It, opening with a thumping “The Modern Age” and following that up with the first “Soma” since 2010. After a quick run through “Threat of Joy” from the new EP, the band returned to older material with “What Ever Happened?” from Room on Fire, followed by the increasingly rare “Under Cover of Darkness” from their comeback record, Angles. Next up were three impressive bust outs in a row, as “Alone, Together” from Is This It and “Ask Me Anything” from First Impressions of Earth were both trotted out for the first time since 2011. In between those two tracks was the biggest bust out of the night, playing First Impressions of Earth‘s “Electricityscape” for the first time since 2006.After so many bust outs, the band brought the crowd back to earth with another debut from Future Present Past, this time “Oblivius”. The Strokes then turned in a great rendition of their classic Is this It track “Someday”, with “You’re So Right” from Angles following it up. After a raucous run through “Juicebox” from First Impressions of Earth, the band gave the crowd even more bust outs, playing “Evening Sun” from First Impressions for the first time since 2010, and “Trying Your Luck” from Is This It for the first time since 2011. They sandwiched these rarities with their third and final song from the new EP, “Drag Queen”. Finally, they brought things to a close with the energetic Room on Fire track “Reptilia”, after which they left the stage and did not return for an encore.After such an exciting night, it was a surprise to look back at the setlist and see that it lacked many of The Strokes go-to live favorites, such as “Take it or Leave it”, “Last Night”, “New York City Cops”, “12:51”, “Is This It”, “Hard To Explain” and “Machu Picchu”.  One can only imagine what’s in store when The Strokes take the stage to headline their hometown Governor’s Ball this Friday, locked and loaded with a set full of classics on deck.Check out some videos from the show, courtesy of Megan S/YouTube!last_img read more

Brazilian Police Take Over Dangerous Rio Favela

first_imgBy Dialogo October 16, 2012 Brazilian Marines and paramilitary police stormed one of Rio’s most notorious shantytowns, as the city cleans up ahead of the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games. It took just 20 minutes for the security forces to take over the Manguinhos slum in the pre-dawn raid involving hundreds of police assisted by helicopters hovering overhead, and armored personnel carriers carrying 170 marines that plowed through road obstacles set up in the narrow streets. No shots were fired, but three people were arrested. Police said that five alleged drug crime bosses that had fled to a nearby favela were killed on October 13. Police also increased their presence in Jacarezinho, a nearby favela and major crack cocaine consumption center. Some 1,300 heavily armed police members participated in the operations, officials said. The two favelas, home to some 70,000 people, are located 10 kilometers from downtown Rio and are strongholds of the powerful Comando Vermelho (CV) drug gang. The operation is “another step toward peace, to reduce the number of homicides, car theft, and home break-ins,” said Rio de Janeiro State Governor Sergio Cabral. “The practical effect of this is measured by a more peaceful life for citizens,” Cabral said. Rio de Janeiro’s Security Secretary Jose Mariano Beltrame, hailed what he called a “major victory for society, for the people, for public service.” Around midday, the police raised the Brazilian flag in the Manguinhos town square and sang the national anthem, symbolically freeing the shantytown from the crime bosses. What follows now is “a meticulous search for drugs, weapons and the arrest of criminals,” said Rio Military Police spokesman Federico Caldas. Paramilitary police will keep the peace until a unit with agents especially trained to handle favela affairs arrives in December, Caldas said. Hundreds of police officers blocked entrances to Jacarezinho, but did not occupy the site. “The Military Police needs more time to occupy this area. What we will do is have a constant presence there,” Deputy Civil Police Chief Fernando Veloso told TV Globo News.last_img read more

Narelle Henson: Traversing ‘trans’ arena tricky at best

first_imgStuff 2 June 2017Family First Comment: Another superb column by Narelle Henson – she really should replace Lizzie Marvelly in the Herald (although Narelle may make too much sense!)But regarding the tricky trans arena, Narelle succinctly says:“Of course, the only way to avoid the war is to hitch the bandwagon back to biological identity, and admit that feelings don’t tell the full story about any of us. But somewhere along the line biological identity became offensive. This means, of course, that we are all stuck on the bandwagon, and headed right for a battlezone.” If you’re wondering how headlines on transgender groups can make the news at the same time as headlines on gender-neutral school uniforms, you’re not alone.It seems obvious, really, that we can’t have a society in which both co-exist. After all, being gender-neutral means “not identified with any gender”. Transgender means “identifying with the opposite gender”. You can’t have no genders and be an opposite gender at the same time.This is just a sneak peek of the utter confusion into which the identity bandwagon is rapidly rolling us.Take, for example, the story of Rachel Dolezal, the woman who brought “transracial” into the public imagination. If your true sexual identity, or gender identity was based on feelings, she argued, then why not race?Rebecca Tuvel, a philosopher who wrote a paper in March arguing that very same point, was vehemently denounced by hundreds of fellow academics for – get this – “epistemic (thought) violence”. The controversy led to the eventual retraction of the paper, and got so big it now has its own Wikipedia page.Last year we were introduced to the idea of being “trans-species” by Nano, the woman who identifies as a cat. Luis Padron also used the term this year to explain his feelings about wanting to become an elf.READ MORE: read more

New matching program to address local railroad overpass issues

first_imgIndianapolis, in. — The Indiana Department of Transportation today announced the agency will make available at least $125 million for high-priority railroad safety projects on local roads statewide through the agency’s new “Local Trax” matching grant program.Local Trax provides state matching funds for Indiana cities, towns, and counties interested in pursuing high-priority railroad grade separations, crossing closures, and other safety enhancements at railroad intersections with local roads.“Much like Community Crossings, Local Trax is an innovative approach to infrastructure funding that creates a partnership between the state and communities willing to put skin in the game toward improving their local roads,” Governor Eric. J Holcomb said. “Eliminating at-grade rail crossings on local roads makes our transportation network safer, reduces congestion, and better connects our communities.”INDOT will begin accepting project proposals from local agencies in May. The application window will stay open until August 31 with the awarding funds expected to be announced in late summer. Local Trax requires local governments to provide only 20 percent of funding for land acquisition and construction with the state providing the other 80 percent.“Thanks to Governor Holcomb’s Next Level Roads plan and the support of state lawmakers, Indiana is able to invest in infrastructure, both highways and local roads, at levels not seen before in our state’s history,” INDOT Commissioner Joe McGuinness said. “Local Trax will direct needed funds to high priority local rail projects, enhancing mobility and livability in our communities.”The goal of Local Trax is to encourage partnership between the state, local governments, private businesses, and railroads to increase safety, improve mobility, and enhance the quality of life for Hoosiers.“The railroad industry is pleased to collaborate with state and local governments on this very important issue,” commented Kristin Bevil, President of the Indiana Railway Coalition. “This unique program furthers efforts to improve safety at railroad crossings, a matter the railroads take very seriously.”Funding authorization for Local Trax was granted in HEA1002-2017, the long-term, sustainable road funding plan passed by the Indiana General Assembly and signed by Governor Holcomb in April 2017.INDOT will hold a series of meetings around the state later this month for local officials to present program details and requirements and answer questions.Monday, April 9: 1 p.m. INDOT Greenfield District Office, 32 S.
