first_imgIn advance of a fall tour that kicks off next month, San Diego jam band Brothers Gow took the stage at the Music Box, a venue new to the band and relatively new to the San Diego music scene. Throughout their one solid set, the band managed to showcase their diverse musical aptitude and took seriously their responsibility for rocking.The quintet’s undeniable musical chemistry paved the way for fresh takes on classic covers, conquered clever mash-ups which have been a mainstay of recent performances, breathed new life into long-forgotten originals, and finished strong with sit-ins by Dela and AG of the Stoopid horn section.With a ceremonial welcome and cheers from rhythm guitar and vocalist, Ethan Wade, the boys blazed out of the gate with “Good Clean Fun,” a multi-part progressive original that kicks off upbeat and danceable on the outset before melting into a relaxed and comfortable groove. The original appeared in multiple teases throughout the night’s tightly-woven, exploratory set.Grunge-infused “The Well” illustrated the band’s decisive transitions, and their deep understanding of intentional musical dissonance infused by Wade’s deep, infectious vocals. Soon after, things took a turn to the downright funky with “Atomic Snoop,” an ingenious fusion of George Clinton’s “Atomic Dog” and Snoop Dogg’s “Who Am I (What’s My Name),” with spirited vocal interplay between Wade, lead guitar Kyle Merrill, and keyboardist Alex Gow Bastine.“Good Clean Fun” made its second appearance of the night during a reinvigorated instrumental section of “Whiskey Sunday” where the cohesive rhythm section – drummer Nathan Walsh-Haines and bassist Carson Church – joined forces deep in the pocket. Merrill took the vocal reins on “Tangerine,” a touching debut original followed by lick-heavy “Reflections,” the title track from Brothers Gow’s fourth studio album.The highlight of the night came when horn players AG and Dela from the Stoopid horn section joined Brothers Gow for a duo of songs, original “Wake and Bake” and a clever mashup dubbed “Bad LA Coke,” encompassing Escort’s “Cocaine Blues” (with Walsh-Haines making a rare appearance on lead vocals), Umphrey’s McGee’s “Bad Friday,” and the Grateful Dead’s “West LA Fadeaway.” Watch the band’s official video below.The night wrapped up with “Articulated Mush,” a driving, metal-esque, uptempo instrumental, ripe for improvisation with dueling talk box solos from Merrill and Bastine before diving back into “Good Clean Fun” one last time. A “Shadow” encore closed the night, with a Beatles’ “With a Little Help From My Friends” chorus to send friends off in the the downtown San Diego night.Brothers Gow weren’t the only ones in the venue to dig deep: fans at the show helped to raise more than $200 for the band’s eponymous music foundation, which helps to put instruments into K-12 classrooms in San Diego.You don’t want to miss Brothers Gow on their fall tour, which kicks off next month.

first_imgThe sponsor of the just concluded Principals’ Cup Football competition in Delta State, Zenith Bank, has expressed great delight with the standard of the 2019 edition which was the third.The competition was revived after 27 years in limbo only three years ago courtesy of a partnership initiative between the bank and the Governor Ifeanyi Okowa-led administration of Delta State.Zenith Bank’s GM and Head, Delta Zone, Lucky Ighade, said the organisation is excited that the tournament has been getting better with every edition. He said: “The boys are all very talented. I am particularly impressed with the standard of the final match. Our team monitoring the competition also gave us positive reports about the standard exhibited during the early stages of the tournament even at Local Government level.“We are happy that some of these boys will in future be good ambassadors of the country in football. That is why we are so proud that it is getting bigger and better with every edition.”Obule Integrated School, Sapele defeated Boys Secondary School, Obiaruku 2-1 in the final match of the Zenith/Delta Principals’ Cup decided at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba on April 1.Ighade added that the motive of the bank was already being realized because reports suggest that some of the products of the competition are in national teams.“We have this Principals Cup tournament and another age grade event of the NFF we are supporting and the football federation told us that some of the players in the current U-17 team were from tournaments we sponsored.“Our purpose of supporting the youths is being realized already and we will do much to make this become very clear in the years ahead. Youths are the leaders of tomorrow and they deserve all the attention they can get today to realize their respective career objectives,” Ighade stressed.Over 800 private and public secondary schools took part in the competition which started in October last year across all the 25 Local Government Areas of Delta State.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
