Pink Talking Fish’s Eric Gould Talks “Stop Making Sense” Tribute At The Capitol Theatre

first_imgWe’ve seen a lot of great shows from Pink Talking Fish over the last few years, as the hybrid tribute fusion band continues to make a name for themselves by fusing the music of Pink Floyd, Talking Heads and Phish. The group has given us interpretations of Gamehendge, Dark Side Of The Moon, Animals and so much more, but their newest concept performance looks to be their most exciting yet.Not only will the band headline at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY, for the first time, but they’ll do so with special guests to the tune of the Talking Heads’ famed film, Stop Making Sense – with Pink Floyd and Phish included, of course – on February 3rd. Tickets here. Says bandleader Eric Gould, “We have created many concepts within our concept at this point in the PTF journey. The albums are extremely exciting because the performance gives a double sided pleasure of experiencing the album in its entirety live while also witnessing something unique with the songs intertwining.When thinking of these ideas, we’ve always known that Stop Making Sense would be a beast once we added the Phish & Pink Floyd Songs throughout the piece.  It’s a long and high energy track list as is.  Adding the other bands into the mix turns this into a 3 plus hour marathon. As a result, we have been waiting for a special event to make this happen. Headlining The Capitol Theatre is the perfect time to unleash this experience.”Not only will Stop Making Sense be played, but the band will bring on a number of special guests for the occasion, including Leo Nocentelli of The Meters, The Turkuaz Horns, Shira Elias & Sammi Garett of Turkuaz, Jen Durkin of Deep Banana Blackout, Jon Braun of Start Making Sense and Adrian Tramontano of Kung Fu will all be joining Pink Talking Fish for the show.Says Gould, “We knew that this concept would benefit from a spectacle. The film concert had the band get bigger and bigger during each song on the front end. We didn’t want to do exactly what they did because part of our philosophy in PTF is to provide a fresh experience. We decided to bring on a variety of special guests and treat it “Last Waltz” style.The Cap knew we were playing with Jen Durkin over NYE and they love her so that was an easy one. We love the Turkuaz crew and the stars aligned since they tour so much but happened to have this time off. Adrian from Kung Fu has been involved with PTF on multiple occasions. Our booking agent suggested Leo Nocentelli. I gave him a call and we had a fantastic conversation about the show and life and him playing with Bernie Worrell. He is very excited to be a part of this.Jon Braun of Start Making Sense is so good and we are really excited to collaborate with him. Who knows? He may even break out the big suit!”Not only are there are a ton of special guests, but the unique project Electric Beethoven will also be on as support. “Those musicians are amazing. PTF has played with Stoops on a few occasions and I go way back with Reed.  They are brothers in the “unique tribute” ride as well so the bands will connect well together.”With the special guests in place, the stage set, and the album selected, the band and their fans know that they’re in for a long night ahead. “I’ve had a lot of experience with the marathon set and I love it,” says Gould. “My longest performance was at Bonnaroo 2003 with Particle. We took the stage at 3AM and ended the set over 5 1/2 hours later after 8:30AM. There is a zen that you achieve once you are involved in a performance that reaches beyond the average “long” set for a show. Something sets in and there is no rush. The music that comes from this is a gem.”So what can we expect from this performance? Well, aside from all of the goodies mentioned in this article, the band certainly has a few tricks up their proverbial sleeves. “Are there surprises? Oh yes. But I’ll never tell! This is going to be a musical celebration and a marathon journey. My hope is that the audience experience for this show takes them on a path of endurance and joy.  The design of this show will have constant excitement and will provide a roller coaster of inertia.He concludes, “Performing live music is amazing. Creating a special event that is a larger than life spectacle takes the excitement through the stratosphere. What’s great about this collection of characters is that the full experience, both on and off stage, is going to be a blast. Artists from different bands often get together like this at festivals but it is rare when it is centered around a theatre concert production. We are ready and eager to bring this energy to The Capitol Theatre!”You can find more information about this event here, or enter to win tickets below.last_img read more

Photos reveal nature’s wonder at Arnold Arboretum

first_imgArtist Chris Morgan’s “Transitions: Winter into Spring,” on display at the Arboretum’s Hunnewell Building through May 5, uses large-scale digital photography to bring nature to life.Panoramic images detail the icy grip of a blizzard in an urban forest. The grandeur of trees, delicacy of flowers, and dynamic movements of birds in larger-than-life representations provoke awe.Morgan has photographed in 45 countries over five decades, and at the Arnold Arboretum for more than 15 years. He moved to Roslindale in 2017 to be near the landscape where he feels most inspired and at home with his camera, and which he now photographs daily.“I love being among the trees, walking in the woods and feeling refreshed,” he said. “I’m drawn to the space, and love Frederick Law Olmsted’s work.”The Arboretum was established in 1872 and is a Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site. Originally designed as both public green space and a scientific living collection, the Arboretum offers the opportunity for the artistic exploration of nature and wildlife within a city setting.Morgan was born in Glasgow, Scotland, but grew up in New England, where he developed a penchant for photography. He holds a bachelor’s degree in electronics engineering, a master’s degree in computer science, and is also an author, computer consultant, puzzle designer, musician, magician, and Lewis Carroll scholar. But photography has been his main avocation since he received a 35mm camera as a gift when he was 16.,Though Morgan loves the look of film images, he said digital panoramic techniques let him explore large-format photography in creative ways. With the latest camera technology, he can track a fast-moving bird with a shutter speed at 1/5,000 of a second, or take 10 frames a second — sometimes amassing as many as 1,000 high-resolution pictures in five minutes — then blend them together as one image. The results show a bird in its stages of flight, or the mysterious way a flower unfolds.“I believe digitally stitched images affect our brains in a unique way,” he said. “Watching a movie on a small TV screen is not the same as watching on a big theater screen. Bigger screens elicit stronger emotional responses.”The images below invite people to experience a unique close-up of nature and wildlife as seen at the Arboretum through Morgan’s lens.Join Chris Morgan for an Artist’s Talk at the Arnold Arboretum on March 31 at 11 a.m., when he will discuss photographic techniques, editing, his work, and his influences. On April 13, at 10 a.m., join him for an Artist’s Walk to learn the best technique for landscape photography.

Why aren’t more people talking about this tax change?

first_img continue reading » 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Although the limits on state and local property taxes has gotten most of the attention, one of the amendments to the tax code will have a potentially large impact on credit unions has to do with loans taken out based on a home equity. Among the changes advanced by the “Stable Genius” running the country – his words not mine – and his acolytes, is one that does away with the deductibility of home equity loans.I’m really surprised this hasn’t gotten more attention. It means that the member who has been planning to help pay for their kid’s education by taking out some of the equity on their home, or hopes to pay an unexpected medical bill is in for a rude awakening.While Congress has completely done away with the deductibility of home equity interest, it has also reduced the amount that can be deducted for so-called “acquisition indebtedness.” As the conference report on the tax bill explains, “Acquisition indebtedness” generally means debt incurred in, or that results from the refinancing of debt incurred in, “acquiring, constructing, or substantially improving” a qualified residence. Id. § 163(h)(3)(B)(i). This means that there will still be at least limited interest on the part of some members who are doing a major construction or remodeling job. It also means that you will get members asking their front line staff if they feel the purpose of the loan will qualify for a tax break. Of course my advice is not to answer that question. I’m just here to tell you that your employees will be getting it.last_img read more

Laliga: Levante upset Barca
