first_imgIn mid-April, Trey Anastasio and his new Ghosts Of The Forest rounded out their east coast tour with a pair of performances at the stunning United Palace in upper Manhattan.Trey Anastasio Discusses Plans For Ghosts Of The Forest Live Album On SiriusXMDuring a chat with SiriusXM JamOn host Ari Fink, Trey announced a special live recording plan for Ghosts of the Forest’s New York City shows. He explained,This has been in place all along, but, the idea was to take the two nights and record the shows as a live album at the United Palace Theatre. It will almost be like a regular recording session, with two passes at the shows. For example, when Aretha Franklin was famously recording a record she would do two passes and that was it. Everyone had to play live. So for us, this is like we get two takes at the United Palace Theatre, but most importantly, the full picture of the Ghosts of the Forest document will have our community members and family in the audience. The recording will end up being a live album.On Wednesday, after sharing “Ghosts of the Forest” the day prior, Anastasio has unveiled the second pro-shot video from the recent Ghosts of the Forest NYC performances with “Drift While You’re Sleeping”, which you can watch below:Ghosts of the Forest – “Drift While You’re Sleeping” – 4/12/2019 (Pro-Shot)[Video: Trey Anastasio]Trey Anastasio Band (which features Ghosts of the Forest members Ray Paczkowski, Tony Markellis, and Jennifer Hartswick) is gearing up for a run of shows in late May before Trey and Ghosts of the Forest drummer Jon Fishman turn their attention back to their main project for Phish‘s 2019 summer tour, beginning with a two-night run at St. Louis, MO’s Chaifetz Arena on June 11th and 12th.

Center for European Studies partners with European Parliament for 3-year pilot exchange program

first_img Read Full Story The Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies (CES) is thrilled to announce the launch of a three-year pilot exchange program with the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE), a political party in the European Parliament. The goal of this new agreement is to provide meaningful internships for Harvard College students, research opportunities for ALDE’s policymakers, and to promote a free exchange of ideas.The program wrapped up its first phase as Harvard College students Beatrice Walton ‘14 and Karen Zhou ‘14 returned from a summer interning for ALDE in the European Parliament in Brussels. During the 2013-14 academic year, CES will in turn host members of ALDE’s senior policy staff as short-term policy fellows in residence, with Anders Rasmussen and Philip Drauz as the inaugural ALDE fellows. Both institutions are looking forward to the many fruitful exchanges that will come from leveraging the extensive resources and networks at Harvard and the European Parliament.“This opportunity absolutely underscores CES’ core mission,” said Sarah Delude, a CES staffer who took part in writing the terms of this new agreement. “We are thrilled to provide Harvard students with a practical behind-the-scenes look into legislative processes within the European Parliament, while on campus we look forward to learning from ALDE’s policy experts as they engage with the Harvard community and create new transatlantic dialogues.”last_img read more

Vermin welcome Christmas

first_imgStudents clad in ugly sweaters and Santa hats will flock to Carroll Hall tonight from 6 to 10 p.m. for the annual Carroll Christmas. “It’s a great, festive time to get in the Christmas spirit,” Carroll Christmas commissioner junior Mike Weiss said. Weiss said the event includes a performance from the Glee Club, a tree lighting ceremony with a 17-foot tree, pictures with Santa, free food and much more. Weiss said he is most looking forward to the annual cookie contest, which will take place at 8 p.m. “For the past two years I’ve been in the picture … and I missed the cookie contest both years,” Weiss said. “One of the R.A.’s moms has won it for three years in a row, and I’m dying to eat these award-winning cookies.” The trek to Carroll will be easier this year, thanks to funding from the Student Union Board (SUB) for a horse and carriage to take students from the LaFortune Student Center to Carroll Hall between 6 and 8 p.m. Carroll SUB commissioner, sophomore Ethan Montemayor, said the carriage rides will be a big draw, but the walk to Carroll will be equally as pleasant. “The path will be lined with luminaries, so it is a very pretty walk on a nice December evening,” Montemayor said. Also new this year will be a service project that visitors can complete during the event, Weiss said. “It is in conjunction with another club,” Weiss said, “and it is writing letters to soldiers abroad or people in underdeveloped countries.” Because Carroll is such a small dorm, everyone pitched in to help with their signature event, Weiss said. “Everyone has been downstairs, decorating every night,” Weiss said. “It’s a big community-building event.” Montemayor said the willingness of all the Vermin to set up the event makes Carroll Christmas so successful. “Everyone’s been pitching in a bunch,” he said. “It’s really nice to see all years here at Carroll, from freshmen to seniors, all pulling for this event to happen.” Montemayor said the multiple contributions from dorm residents has made the decorations quite impressive. “The halls are decked,” he said. In addition to decorating, the men of Carroll also took shifts to publicize the event. “I would say half the dorm signs up for a shift to hand out fliers and candy canes outside both dining halls Thursday and Friday afternoon,” Weiss said. Weiss said the men of Carroll are very excited for their signature event. “It’s the week we all look forward to, despite the fact that everyone has finals and all sorts of papers due in the next two weeks,” he said. Montemayor said he is expecting a large turnout for the event. “It’s a great time to come out, have a bit of a walk, meet some great people, have some food, have some cookies, take a picture with Santa, listen to the glee club — you can’t go wrong,” he said.last_img read more

What’s the definition of adventuring?

first_imgSummer at Snowshoe might just be the quintessential definition of adventuring. A chance to increase your vocabulary, as you stockpile new skills and thrills. A place where hiking-boot-mornings turn to bikini-afternoons, fishing flies are chosen as wisely as swinging clubs, and the thirst for gravity and velocity never goes unquenched. Where a perfectly banked downhill mountain bike line is worshiped as much as a perfectly seared scallop. And where every day is an invitation for more adventure, and more sticky memories. Welcome to summer on the Mountain. Visit us at snowshoemtn.comlast_img

Brentwood Gang Member Charged With Murder

A beachcomber found his body two weeks after he was slain.Byron “Viruz” Lopez, the 23-year-old alleged leader of a Queens chapter of the gang, was previously accused of ordering the murder. He has pleaded not guilty to the same charges as Espinoza-Merino, who is scheduled to be arraigned Friday at Brooklyn federal court.The arrests were the result of a joint investigation involving Suffolk County police, New York City police, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Explosives and Firearms.If convicted, Espinoza-Merino and Byron Lopez each face up to life in prison.last_img read more
