Soulive’s residency at the Brooklyn Bowl — lovingly referred to as Bowlive —wrapped up over the weekend. Part of what makes the extended Brooklyn Bowl residency so special is Soulive’s ability to tap such a diverse range of guests across the event’s duration, only highlighting the influence that Eric Krasno, Neal Evans, and Alan Evans hold and their diverse musical range. On Friday night, young guitar master Marcus King, NOLA royalty George Porter Jr. of The Meters, and Lettuce’s Shady Horns (Eric “Benny” Bloom and Ryan Zoidis) joined Soulive at the Brooklyn Bowl, delivering a performance that exuded the southern, down-home vibe for which both Porter and King are known.Eric Krasno Band Adds Phish Late Night Show With Brandon “Taz” Niederauer BandOne highlight from their June 16 Bowlive performance was the group’s rendition of the Allman Brothers Band’s classic jam vehicle “Whipping Post.” With vocals led by South Carolina’s soulful Marcus King — a musician who had made his Bowlive debut the night before as a surprise ahead of his official performance on Friday — and Krasno’s and King’s intertwining with the song’s dual leads, it’s definitely worth a listen.

SUNLAND – A depressed woman carrying what family said was a toy gun belonging to her 5-year-old nephew was shot and wounded by police in the carport of the apartment she shared with her mother and a sister. Family said the woman herself had called police to the apartment where she moved last week after breaking up with her boyfriend. “They came in; they had their guns pulled. I’m trying to tell them it’s not a real gun. But they pushed me aside and said, get the hell back,” said sister Amber Brown, who said she watched the shooting from a carport staircase. “They knew it was a toy gun. They knew it the whole time. I don’t even know why (the officers fired). That’s what freaked me out.” Identified by family as Robin Hutchings, 43, the woman was hit in the thigh by one of the four shots fired by two officers sent to the apartment, police said.

Police said she was reported in stable condition. Two Foothill Division officers went to the apartment in the 10400 block of Parr Avenue about 1:15 p.m. Sunday in response to a report of a family dispute involving a person with a gun, police said. As they approached the rear of the complex they encountered the woman carrying what appeared to be a revolver, said Lt. Kevin McClure of the LAPD’s Force Investigation Division. “They fired because they were in fear for their lives. It’s very preliminary but all indications are that they encountered a gun, a replica gun, that if you saw it you would believe it was a real gun,” the lieutenant said. Asked about the family’s statements that the officers were told the gun was not real, McClure said: “We don’t have any of that at this time.” Police let a television news crew photograph the replica gun, which appeared to be a revolver-style model made of bluish-black metal with a black grip. Gina Ardizone, Hutchings’ sister, said Hutchings had made the call to police from the apartment, and that her sister told police in the call that she had a toy gun. “She wasn’t a threat to anyone,” said Ardizone, 35, who lives in the apartment. “She’s having a really hard time. It’s Christmas. She doesn’t feel like she belongs.” Deputy Chief Michel Moore, Valley Bureau commander, went to the apartment complex after the shooting. “It appears it’s a tragedy all the way around,” Moore said. “The officers were thrust into a situation where they believed she was armed with a handgun. In defense of their lives they used their firearms. Hopefully she will survive her injuries and the investigation will give us more insight into how this happened.” — Josh Kleinbaum, (818) 546-3669 [email protected] local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
