Trey Anastasio Trio Offers Tour Debuts, Fantastic “Mr. Completely”/”Plasma” Sandwich In NOLA [Videos]

first_imgOn Saturday night, the Trey Anastasio Trio rounded out their three-show run at the Civic Theatre in New Orleans. As they have throughout this brief tour, Trey Anastasio, Russ Lawton, and Tony Markellis dug into tonally textured takes 0n TAB and Phish favorites and continued to work more new songs into the rotation.Trey opened the performance with a solo acoustic rendition of “Theme From The Bottom”, getting the crowd singing along early. “Cayman Review” came next, followed by “Undermind”, one of several Phish songs that have become staples of the Trey Trio’s setlists this tour. “The Way I Feel” was up next, followed by the first tour debut of the evening, Paper Wheels track “Sometime After Sunset”. “Frost” provided a brief breather before another Phish rocker, “Stealing Time From The Faulty Plan”, quickly helped the show pick up steam once more, the group’s power trio grit lending itself perfectly to Joy track.After a botched start and a quick mulligan (“Sorry, guys!” laughed Trey), the trio offered another tour debut in the form of “Spin”, a groove they rode into fuzzed-out depths for one of the set’s best jams. High-energy renditions of “Steam” and “Bounce” brought the first frame to a close.Set two opened with a quality pairing of “Set Your Soul Free” and “Sand”, both of which were pushed into exploratory territory. “Drifting” and “Bug” came next, before giving way to “Mr. Completely”. The TAB fan-favorite was responsible for one of last year’s most surprising Phish jams when it appeared in Pittsburgh for an extended ride after a 380-show gap. The song once again served as an improvisational centerpiece for the TAT in New Orleans, as they deftly wove the tune into another tour debut–a slow-boiling “Plasma–before landing back in “Mr. Completely”. Another new addition to the TAT rotation, “The Architect”, came next, followed by a celebratory “Tuesday” to close set two.After opening the show’s encore with a solo acoustic rendition of “More”, Trey dedicated the final song of the evening to his lifelong friend, Chris Cottrell, who passed away this year after a battle with adrenal cancer, before leading into “Push On Til’ The Day”, which references Cottrell in its lyrics.The Trey Anastasio Trio will round out their spring run tonight with a benefit show at Terminal West in Atlanta, GA. The performance, billed as “Sustain,” will serve as a memorial service for Chris Cottrell and will raise money for the Waterwheel Cancer Fund in his memory.

G8 Leaders Vow Joint Action Against Terrorism

first_imgBy Dialogo June 29, 2010 G8 leaders pledged to work together in an “integrated and coordinated” manner to combat the threat posed by terrorism and attack violent extremism at its roots. “Terrorism threatens people everywhere and undermines peace, stability and security. All acts of terrorism are criminal, inhumane, and unjustifiable irrespective of motivation. Denouncing suicide bombings and a rise in hostage-takings, the leaders said after talks in Canada that it was “critical to address the conditions conducive to the spread of terrorism.” They highlighted in their joint statement the need for governments to promote the rule of law, protect human rights and ensure good governance. “Given the complex nature of the terrorist threat, an integrated and coordinated G8 response is essential to meeting this challenge.” center_img “Terrorist groups and other criminal organizations tend to flourish where governments lack the capacity and resiliency to address security vulnerabilities, in some cases threatening the stability of states,” the joint statement said. The group stressed the need to better co-ordinate counter-terrorism efforts, and to make them more “innovative, far-reaching and sustained.” Vowing to support weak governments in Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Sahel, Somalia and Yemen fight terrorism, G8 leaders said they would step up efforts to promote the rule of law. last_img read more

Man found guilty of raping 6-year-old

first_img…jailed for 28 yearsColvin Norton was on Tuesday found guilty by a 12-member jury on two counts of raping a six-year-old girl, whom he attempted to silence with death threats. The 24-year-old man was jailed for a total of 28 years by Justice Jo-Ann Barlow at the Sexual Offences Court for illegals acts which occurred August 1, 2013, and just five days after on August 6, 2013 in the county of Demerara.Jailed: Convicted child rapist, Colvin NortonFor the first count, he was sentenced to 24 years but on the second count, the Judge added four extra years for aggravation, thereby sentencing him to 28 years. In fact, during the trial the court heard that Norton was caught in the act by the child’s mother on the second occasion.It was revealed that after he sexually penetrated the young child, he told her not to tell anyone as her mother would not believe her. The jury also considered that Norton later threatened the girl that if she told, he would kill both her and her mother.In the child’s impact statement read out by her court support, Celeste Mullen of ChildLink Guyana Inc, stated that the child still has flashbacks to the time the incident occurred. Mullen also said she was so affected by Norton’s actions that even her grades started to slip at school.“At first I felt sad and ashamed. After the incident, I felt that I was the cause of what happened…I deserve me innocence, I thought I was the only child in the world who had something like this happen but I later learned that this was not so. I am not so ashamed now as I know that Colvin Norton is being punished,” the girl who is a few years shy of being a teenager expressed.Before Justice Barlow considered sentencing, the court inquired twice of the defendant if he had anything to add following the jury’s verdict. He however stated that he didn’t really know what to say at that moment. Later on, he did not offer any comment in mitigation. The Judge took into account that Norton was 19 years old at the time of the offences but stressed that it still was not an excuse for raping the child.Justice Barlow considered that the offender breached the trust of the child’s mother who had entrusted him to care for not only the six-year old but others as well.“Like a thief in the night, you violated a six-year-old,” the Judge remarked.She also pointed out that Norton trying to silence the victim showed his total disregard for proper moral values. The Judge further noted that sexual offenders have issues with controlling their emotions and ordered that Norton undergo treatment under the sexual offender’s rehabilitation programme. She added that he should also take on programmes to improve his literacy. She also expressed hope for the child to continue receiving counselling.Norton will be 52 years old before he is allowed to return to society. He was unrepresented as reports indicated that he could not afford the services of an attorney. State Prosecutors in this matter were Abigail Gibbs, Tiffini Lyken and Narissa Leander.
