[Video: Sean Roche]After set break, Tedeschi Trucks Band returned sans Ravi, again opening the set with a cover: this time of George Jones’ “Color Of The Blues”. Similar to frame one, the group produced a mix of original and cover tunes, though many of the covers came toward the end of the set. After “Bound For Glory”, which came squarely in the middle of the second set, the group laid out a string of covers, including Derek & The Dominos’ “Keep On Growing”, Freddie King’s “Have You Ever Loved A Woman”, and Howlin’ Wolf’s “I’ve Been Abused”. As a highlight to end the set, the group segued from their own “The Storm”, off 2013’s Made Up My Mind into Allman Brothers Band’s fan-favorite classic tune “Whipping Post”.“Whipping Post” [Video: Sean Roche]To close out the show in full, Ravi Coltrane once again appeared during the final song of the encore. Tedeschi Trucks Band first performed their cover of Tom Petty’s “You Don’t Know How It Feels”, followed up by a song initially from Derek Trucks’ own solo career, “Get What You Deserve”. From there, Ravi appeared for a final rendition of Bob Dylan’s “Let’s Go Get Stoned”.“Get What You Deserve”[Video: Sean Roche]Setlist: Tedeschi Trucks Band | Beacon Theatre | New York, NY | 10/12/2018Set One: Break in the Road, Laugh About It, Within You Without You, Just as Strange, All the World, Anyhow, Loving You (Has Made My Life Sweeter Than Ever), Midnight in Harlem, Ali, Down in the FloodSet Two: Color of the Blues, Still Your Mind, Chevrolet, Right on Time, Bound for Glory, Keep On Growing, Have You Ever Loved a Woman, I’ve Been Abused, The Storm, Whipping PostEncore: You Don’t Know How It Feels, Get What You Deserve, Let’s Go Get Stoned On Friday night, Tedeschi Trucks Band kicked off the final weekend of their ongoing six-night Beacon Theatre residency, which finishes in full tonight, Saturday, October 13th. While the mid-week shows have seen more traditional sets from the band’s 12-piece lineup, the weekend shows have set a trend of inviting special guests to join them onstage. Following last weekend’s sit-ins from Jimmy Herring and Doyle Bramhall II for the run’s opening night, Tedeschi Trucks Band similarly had a special guest planned for their Friday night showing, with saxophonist Ravi Coltrane joining the band to close out the first set and encore.Marketed as an “Evening With” show, meaning that the band offered up two sets without an opener, Tedeschi Trucks Band performed a particularly cover-heavy first set, opened with Betty Harris’ soulful “Break In The Road”. After original number “Laugh About It”, the group then dug into The Beatles’ catalog, performing Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’s “Within You Without You”, marking its first play in around a year. From there, after a string of three originals—”Just as Strange”, “All the World”, and “Anyhow”—the group then performed Four Tops’ “Loving You (Has Made My Life Sweeter Than Ever)”.“Just As Strange” [Video: Sean Roche]“Anyhow”[Video: Sean Roche]After this fiery start to the set, Tedeschi Trucks Band invited saxophonist Ravi Coltrane out to the stage. The son of famed jazz musicians John Coltrane and Alice Coltrane, Ravi first emerged for a rendition of TTB original “Midnight In Harlem” before Ravi and company offered up a track from one of his father’s jazz contemporaries, Miles Davis, with a rendition of “Ali”. To close out Ravi Coltrane’s first sit-in of the evening, Tedeschi Trucks Band then performed a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Down In The Flood” to end the first set on a high note.“Midnight In Harlem” with Ravi Coltrane
Eaux Claires Music Festival will not return to Foster Farms in Eau Claire, Wisconsin next summer. The niche music event has typically taken place in early July for the past few years, but will plan on taking a year off in 2019 before it returns in summer 2020, according to the statement shared by producers via the event website on Tuesday. The festival was founded in 2015 as a collaborative event between The National guitarist Aaron Dessner and Bon Iver‘s Justin Vernon.A portion of the statement shared by the event on Tuesday reads:In the last four years we have grown together as patrons and organizers; these experiences are perfectly focused within our own collected memories, and feel something like going through four years of high school – the growth, the mistakes, the energy, but most of all the searing, stumbling beauty of becoming one’s self. After our Senior year, we find ourselves wanting to move out, change things, and take stock of who we’ve become. In order to manage this transition, we are going to take a year off. While it will be hard for us to break the chain of momentum and the positive impact the festival has had on our community, we have fresh, clear ideas of how to make it even better.The statement can be taken to mean that the overall goal of their one-year break will be to re-evaluate how their event fits into the heavily oversaturated festival market here in North America. However, the note did make sure to leave fans and annual attendees with the confirmation that Eaux Claires will return in 2020, with a production that “will be more focused, fun, and internal.” The producers also reassured fans that local patrons will be able to enjoy some smaller “public events” scheduled in the coming winter months, to be held at Pablo Center at the Confluence in the heart of Eau Claire. Those events will include both “performance and dialogue” about what out-of-town fans and locals can expect in from the event throughout the coming decade.One of the big strengths of an event like Eaux Claires is that niche festivals tend to have a stronger community feel to them. That intimacy and fan-to-artist connection allows for both attendees and performers to feel like they’re a part of something more meaningful than just another enormous pop festival surrounded by 55,000 people. This past summer, artist/producer Justin Vernon held the event’s lineup a secret until the day of the festival before hosting an event that featured The National, Dirty Projectors, Sharon Van Etten, Moses Sumney, Pussy Riot, and more.Back in 2016, many of the artists who appeared on the Day Of The Dead tribute album would perform some of their Grateful Dead covers as part of a day at Eaux Claires fully dedicated to the famous band. Justin Vernon is no stranger to the world of the Grateful Dead. This past summer, he was invited to join Dead & Company on stage at Wisconsin’s Alpine Valley Music Theatre to help them perform “Bird Song”.

The Alpena Police Department is giving back to help 12 students fulfill wishes on their Christmas list.The department partnered with local law enforcement agencies, Walmart and local credit union partners to provide kids with gift cards for shopping and a free breakfast.Alpena High School Liaison Officer Tim Marquardt says the program has been going strong since 2003 — the year it all began.“In those 15 years, those events have really struck a cord with the community and our officers who don’t mind getting on their uniforms and volunteering their time,” says the officer. “They don’t get paid to do this, and for that couple hours have a chance to bond with those kids, and build a rapport with those kids, and help these kids have a little bit brighter Christmas.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Tuesday’s Werth Road house fire updateNext Last week of brush pickups for city residents only
