Keller Williams Reflects On His Lockn’ Performances Over The Years

first_imgThe final day of festivities at the Lockn’ Festival in Arrington, Virginia on Sunday brought an array of music to please even the most discriminate music fan. The heat continued to beat down on the venue, but that didn’t stop attendees from heading down to the Blue Ridge Bowl to catch Keller Williams’ Grateful Gospel, also known as “church” to most festival goers, open up the music of the day. We caught up with Williams over the weekend to get his take on the Lockn’ Festival over the years. He has performed at all four and indicated he was “technically the first act on the bill at the very first Lockn’ however, Kyle Hollingsworth and Jason Hann, [both of String Cheese Incident] actually played the first couple songs. They were out on stage with an accordion and a doumbek. I don’t think there was a microphone and that was the first year. We lovingly named it GridLockn’ because there was a massive traffic jam.”Keller went on to explain how he was stuck in the gridlock nightmare along with everyone else that first year: “It was about an hour away from my set and I’m about a mile away from the stage, and had been sitting there for a while.  I ended up going the wrong way down the street passing all these parked cars and almost inciting a little hippie riot, but thank god it didn’t come to that. The next year they solved all those problems of injury and figured it out.”Because so many people love attending his “church” performance on Sunday, he went on to explain, “I’m very grateful to be a part of this thing, especially to be able to be surrounded by a band like that. A lot of those folks in the Grateful Gospel actually come from a gospel background and a lot of Jerry Garcia’s music went there, so we are kind of breaking out those elements in more of “black gospel,” so to speak.  If you say black gospel, as opposed to white gospel, it’s completely different.  Although it doesn’t sound politically correct, there’s a huge difference between black gospel and white gospel. This is definitely black gospel, that’s heavy on the soul and funky side. It seems to translate. It’s really special. It’s a morning set, and everyone’s used to night time, and you’ve got all day, with food and drinks and everyone’s kind of sluggish. The morning is pretty much a very high energy thing and people are fresh.”As for being able to enjoy time at the festival, he went on to say, “I’ve been able to move in for the weekend. It doesn’t usually happen that often. I’m usually in and out. I’ve been very lucky to be able to play so many festivals. Usually you get to the site an hour before you play, and then leave an hour after you play and head to the airport to go to another festival. It’s very rare that I can actually hang out and absorb it like I can here. It makes me very relaxed. I don’t have to go anywhere. I don’t have to worry about airplanes.”He shared some memorable moments over the years. “I have so many. The last outdoor Allman Brothers show was pretty special. Sitting in with String Cheese the first year on the giant stage was really a rush. During St. Paul & The Broken Bones, I cried. It was daylight, it was hot. There wasn’t a whole lot of people, but it was so real, and so raw and full of emotion that translated to me as I was watching from upstairs on the side stage. It was one of those things where I put my glasses on and didn’t let anyone see the tears coming down. It was that good. I had heard of them before, heard their music and seen them on television.Tom Petty was really cool a couple years ago. That sparked a novelty project I did once called Petty Grass. I did all the hits blue grass style of Tom Petty songs. I did it once.”If you’ve never seen Keller Williams Grateful Grass or Grateful Gospel, here’s a sample from his Saturday performance at Lockn’ this year, with video credit to iccuspunk on YouTube. Words by Sarah Bourque.  Follow on Twitter.Photographs by Sam Shinault Photography.last_img read more

Council encourages kindness

first_imgPankiw said she believes the week will encourage students to continue the effort.“We’re optimistic,” she said. “We’re giving students service events to educate them and show them little acts of kindness can make a difference in the lives of others.” “We were trying to think of out of the box ways to bring service to Notre Dame,” she said. “Sometimes its hard to get students off campus to do service.” “While discussing ideas for service events at one of our meetings, someone brought up a news story in which over 100 people paid for the customer behind them in a Starbucks drive-through,” sophomore Annie Boyle, a member of the committee, said. “We found several similar stories and agreed that there were many opportunities for students to be a part of the ‘pay it forward’ idea.”  She said the committee came up with the idea for the week as a way to encourage students to participate in a different form of community service. “Basically we are going to spend three hours hanging out with the kids, doing tutoring type things and kind of preparing for child abuse awareness month, which is in April,” he said. “Best Buy donated a few video cameras so we’re probably going to do small public service announcements talking about the month and what it is and how to tell signs of abuse.” The idea of the service effort originates from a Starbucks in Chicago were people took turns paying for the person behind them. Pankiw is a member of the Hands-On Community Service Committee, which is the group from the SCC sponsoring the event. She and six others are members of the committee, which organized the week’s events. Yesterday the committee sponsored a panel lecture with different members of the community, including two students, members of The Catholic Worker and two members of the South Dining Hall staff. Pakinaw said the week’s events started on Monday morning and will continue throughout the week. Greg Woods, also a member of the committee, said it has participated in bigger community service projects this year, but wanted to shift gears to focus on something smaller and simpler.  “All year we’ve been focused on more of the bigger type events, like having a kids youth jamboree and visiting the Catholic Worker,” he said. “We’ve done a lot of hands-on service, but we thought that maybe what we could add to this was a focus on the smaller things.” “We started the week passing out hot chocolate on Monday morning in front of DeBartolo and then showed the movie ‘Pay it Forward’ in Andrews Auditorium of Geddes Hall,” she said. “We have more events scheduled for the rest of the week.” “Each person is to speak about how they’ve paid it forward in their own lives or how its helped people in their own lives,” she said. The idea is simple, three big favors for three other people. That’s it.The Sophomore Class Council (SCC) kicked off a community service week emphasizing doing small acts of kindness for others, based on premise of the 2000 movie “Pay it Forward” starring Haley Joel Osment and Kevin Spacey. “Our hope is with the events we have scheduled people are being educated and it will start to have a similar effect at Notre Dame,” sophomore Erin Pankiw said. Woods said the committee coordinated an afternoon at the Boys and Girls Club in South Bend for an alternative type of community service that focuses more on social justice. Boyle said the mission of the week is to encourage the rest of campus to adopt the idea of doing acts of kindness for others. The week’s events were summed up Wednesday evening with a prayer service in Geddes Hall following the service trip to the Boys and Girls Club. Woods said he hopes after this the idea will take off and students will continue to perform acts of kindness.“This week is something we hope to see grow, but then again its something that should become more of an everyday thing,” he said. “Hopefully people take the message and move forward and make it part of their everyday lives.” “The idea of ‘paying it forward’ is for someone who has received an act of kindness to do something for another person, asking not for gratitude in return but for him or her to do the same,” she said. “As a result, a sort of chain of good deeds develops. We wanted to bring the positive spirit of this idea to our campus.”last_img read more

Powered by Firework Three Indian basketball team players, Amjyot Singh, Arshpreet Bhullar and Amritpal Singh, were involved in a roadside brawl in Bengaluru on Wednesday. Reports claim that the Basketball Federation of India (BFI) is probing the incident, through a three-member inquiry committee. The scuffle took place on Wednesday as the players were returning to the national camp that night when a road accident took place and Amjyot Singh took to Instagram posting photos of his injured knee and arms and accused the board for “suppressing” his voice.Advertisement Image Courtesy: NBAThe national basketball team is in Bengaluru to take part in the camp, and as per sources, the trio, Amjyot, Arshpreet, and Amritpal, with an under-17 player, left the campus on two bikes without seeking permission from any officials or coaches. The fight took place outside the camp premises and resulted not only in injuries but also a damaged gold chain and broken spectacles.BFI secretary general Chander Mukhi Sharma confirmed that the four have been issued show cause notices for their violation of the camp’s protocol.Advertisement “Since the two met with the accident, they feared that their act of indiscipline would come out in public. Arshpreet was furious about Amjyot not riding the bike carefully and fought with him. A scuffle broke out and the two hit each other” he said.Among the three accused, Amjyot was involved in a controversy earlier; for allegedly slapping Arshpreet and captain Yadwinder Singh, during the Commonwealth Games in Australia.

Selects too hot to handle en route to Kootenay Zone Provincial berth

first_imgBy The Nelson Daily SportsWhat a “perfect” weekend for soccer . . . that’s if you’re a member of the Nelson U14 Selects.The Heritage City squad outscored the opposition 12-0 en route to capturing the Kootenay U14 Boy’s Zone Title Sunday afternoon at the Lakeside Pitch.The Selects edged Columbia Valley Titans 2-0 and Kootenay East Rovers of Cranbrook 3-0 before running away with the title Sunday, blasting Kootenay South 7-nil.The title was Nelson’s to lose after the home side knocked off the 2010 U13 Zone champs from Invermere in the tourney opener.Dunavan Morris-Janzen scored at the 12-minute mark in the tight contest to give Nelson all the goals it would need.Nolan Percival sealed the win with less than 15 minutes left in the second half as the Nelson striker was finally able to get behind the tough Columbia Valley defence.Nelson kept up the heady play in an evening encounter against Kootenay East, scoring early to capture the win.Micah May’s header gave Nelson the early advantage.May scored his second of the game converting a Spencer Szabo ball before splitting Kootenay East’s backline.Percival, with his second in as many games, converted a fine pass from Tucker Anderson to finish the scoring.Saturday’s two wins secured the gold medal for Nelson.However, the Selects were not quite finished filling the net, getting seven past rival Kootenay South.May again with the early marker just 45 seconds into the game got the home side off and running.Szabo scored on a penalty kick three minutes later after May was taken down in the box.

Rajasthan HC passes directions for improving infrastructure of courts

first_imgAfter a series of “surprise inspections” of lower courts in several districts by Chief Justice S. Ravindra Bhat, the Rajasthan High Court has passed a slew of directions for strengthening the infrastructure of courts, improving facilities on the court premises and giving security to judicial officers. The court has asked the State government to prepare a roadmap for all court complexes to provide facilities in a time-bound manner.The Chief Justice had visited the lower courts in Alwar, Udaipur, Banswara, Ajmer, Chittorgarh, Bharatpur and other districts recently as a common man, without informing the authorities, and found serious infrastructural shortcomings. Almost without exception, public facilities such as toilets and drinking water for litigants and lawyers were inadequate, and at some places, virtually non-existent.A status report submitted by the State government in an ongoing case filed by the Rajgarh Bar Association revealed that adequate security was not available in most of the courts, while a tabular statement for 330 court complexes submitted by the High Court establishment showed that the Bar Rooms, litigants’ waiting area, lock-up, canteen, toilet, water cooler and parking facilities were lacking in them.A Division Bench, comprising the Chief Justice and Justice P.S. Bhati, observed that while statistics and figures painted a grim story, the actual ground reality was worse. “The statistics do not point out the condition of facilities with regard to footfalls… On a rough conservative estimate, 1.50 lakh persons visit the courts everyday, adding up to 4.50 crore annually. The State has the primary responsibility of ensuring minimum hygiene and cleanliness in these public buildings,” said the court.The court directed the State government to indicate within a month how it proposed to provide the required facilities in the court complexes in a time-bound manner. These facilities will include advocates’ chambers, adequate water supply for drinking and other use, canteens, separate public toilets for men and women and litigants’ sheds, which were essential for smooth functioning of courts.Posting the case for further hearing on August 26, the Bench also directed the State government to immediately take steps to deploy police guards at the residences of Principal District Judges and make appropriate security arrangements for all judicial officers. The court said suitable security arrangements for safety in the court complexes should also be made.Meanwhile, the State government’s Law Department has issued orders for getting houses for judicial officers on rent in the event of non-availability of government residence for them. A committee comprising the Collector, District Judge and the Public Works Department’s Superintending Engineer will get the houses at the district level, for which the State government will pay full rent.last_img read more
