As The Crow Flies Continues Inaugural Tour In Las Vegas [Photo]


first_imgOn Tuesday evening, As The Crow Flies rolled through Las Vegas, making a stop at the Brooklyn Bowl for a highly anticipated performance. As The Crow Flies is a relatively new project from Chris Robinson, formerly of The Black Crowes, which is in the midsts of its inaugural tour that kicked off at The Capitol Theatre on April 17th. The band also features Crowes guitarist Audley Freed and bassist Andy Hess, Chris Robinson Brotherhood drummer Tony Leone and keyboardist Adam MacDougall, as well as young famed guitarist Marcus King.Seemingly, it seems as though As The Crow Flies has been offering up fairly standardized setlists with some deviation across towns. For the band’s Las Vegas set, the group opened with a number of classic Black Crowes tunes, with the opening numbers of “Remedy” and “Sting Me” off the group’s sophomore album, 1992’s The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion, followed up by “Twice As Hard”, off The Black Crowes’ 1990 debut, Shake Your Money Maker.While the band pulled from across The Black Crowes’ expansive catalog, As The Crow Flies also found ample opportunity to lay out a few choice covers. Halfway through the performance, the group offered up a standout cover of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s “Almost Cut My Hair”, which followed a take on “Wiser Time”, off The Black Crowes’ 1994 Amorica. The band also closed out their set with a pairing of Otis Redding’s “Hard To Handle” and Joe South’s “Hush”, ahead of their one-song encore offering of Johnny Winter’s “Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo”.You can check out photos from As The Crow Flies’ Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas show on May 8th below, courtesy of Paul Citone.Setlist: As The Crow Flies | Brooklyn Bowl | Las Vegas, NV | 5/8/2018Set: Remedy, Sting Me, Twice as Hard, Nonfiction, By Your Side, Sometimes Salvation, High Head Blues, Good Friday, Almost Cut My Hair (Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young cover), Wiser Time, She Talks to Angels, Thorn in My Pride, Jealous Again, Hard to Handle (Otis Redding cover), Hush (Joe South cover)Encore: Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo (Johnny Winter cover)Photo: As The Crow Flies | Brooklyn Bowl | Las Vegas, NV | 5/8/2018 | Credit: Paul Citone Photo: Paul Citone Load remaining imageslast_img read more

Top Cop Credits Public, Officers for Uniondale Murder Suspect’s Arrest


first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Nassau County police arrested an alleged murder suspect in Uniondale just minutes after he fled the scene of the slaying Monday, police said.Acting on a ShotSpotter notification alerting them to the scene and 911 calls from witnesses, two officers spotted the vehicle fleeing south on Uniondale Avenue and apprehended 35-year-old Joel Arquimides Ayala Deras of Westbury, police said. He was charged with second-degree murder.The two First Precinct officers—Christopher DiGregorio and Gary Butt—also discovered shotgun casings and a .44-caliber handgun on the floor of the car. A subsequent search turned up a shotgun that police believe was used in the slaying, along with a .380-caliber handgun. The victim, 37-year-old German Ismael Saravia Melendez, was fatally shot in the head and back, acting-Nassau County Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter said at a press conference at police headquarters in Mineola Wednesday. Melendez was pronounced dead by an ambulance technician 20 minutes after the shooting.Krumpter credited the two officers for their “keen” observations while racing toward the scene of the shooting.“ShotSpotter is a great tool but without the great police work by the officers involved, the keen observation, road conditions were pretty horrific…they were able to respond in a timely fashion,” said Krumpter, who was flanked by police brass and officers Butt and DiGregorio.Investigators have yet to determine a motive for the shooting, Krumpter said. But officials did say that the two men were acquaintances and had an ongoing dispute. Neither have gang ties.The shooting occurred at 9:44 p.m. Monday, police said. Authorities were alerted to the vicinity near Macon Place and Irving Place by the ShotSpotter alert, which is activated when gunshots are registered in communities where the technology is installed. Calls to 911 and the ShotSpotter alerts came in almost simultaneously, police said.Witnesses provided police with a description of the car, and the two officers were able to act on that information almost immediately.“ShotSpotter didn’t jump off the telephone pole and arrest the defendants,” Krumpter told reporters. “In this case it was the police officers who were responding to the scene; the adrenaline’s pumping, and they’re responding to a shots fired and they were paying attention to what was going on around them on Uniondale Avenue where they observed the vehicle fleeing the scene.”Krumpter defended the department’s perceived failure to adequately alert the public to a homicide, saying the primary responsibility of the department is to conduct probes without compromising investigations.Police did not release details of the fatal shooting until late Tuesday.This is the first homicide in Nassau in 2016. The first fatal shooting in Suffolk was Jan. 17 in North Bay Shore, police said. In that case, 44-year-old Marcelo Argueta Chicas’ lifeless body was discovered with a gunshot wound. The shooting, which also registered on ShotSpotter, remains unsolved.Deras will be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Hempstead.last_img read more

STAR PREVIEW Chile v Argentina


first_img[dropcap]C[/dropcap]hile make plenty of appeal in the Copa America final tonight (9pm Premier Sports) with the significant boost of home advantage.Different sport, granted, but we saw only too well how a partisan crowd can pump up a player at Wimbledon last night with the heroics of Heather Watson who made a mockery of the world rankings.There’s every reason to think the crowd could make a vital difference here as well and I’m not convinced the odds would be much different if it were played on a neutral venue.Chile are certainly scoring plenty of goals in this tournament – averaging 2.6 goals in their five games but Argentina did even better than that with a 6-1 thumping of Paraguay to reach the final.Chile captain Claudio Bravo is hopeful the underdog tag can serve his side well: “We have never been favourites in any tournament and often it is good for us to feel that, because we are full of energy and enthusiasm. The word fear has not been referred to by anyone in the team, but we have the utmost respect for all the opposition teams. The headline of fear or that we were scared was established by the press and not from us.”Argentina are looking for their first major title since 1993 and erase some of the heartache from their defeat at the hands of Germany in the World Cup at Brazil last year.Chile v ArgentinaCopa America 2015 Final9pm Premier SportsHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)Oct 2012 World Cup Chile 1-2 ArgentinaOct 2011 World Cup Argentina 4-1 ChileOct 2008 World Cup Chile 1-0 ArgentinaOct 2007 World Cup Argentina 2-0 ChileApr 2007 International Argentina 0-0 ChileOct 2004 World Cup Chile 0-0 ArgentinaSep 2003 World Cup Argentina 2-2 ChileNov 2000 World Cup Chile 0-2 ArgentinaMar 2000 World Cup Argentina 4-1 ChileJun 1997 Copa America Chile 0-2 ArgentinaChile make most appeal at the prices.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-50 points)BACK CHILE for 10 points at around 11/4 with Star SportsRETURN SINCE START OF WORLD CUP: PROFIT 38.18 POINTS (two Wimbledon ante-post bets outstanding)What’s your view?
