Space Carnival, Goose, & The Southern Belles To Put On A Can’t-Miss Show At Brooklyn Bowl

first_imgNew York’s Brooklyn Bowl will get a taste of Space Carnival, an up-and-comer on the jam scene that’s been quickly rising the ranks, when the quartet out of Oneonta, NY comes to the Williamsburg venue for the first time on Tuesday, October 24th. Space Carnival has big plans for their upcoming Brooklyn Bowl debut, with fellow jammers Goose and Southern Belles in tow for the ride. In recent months, Space Carnival has been focused on writing new music, touring hard, and further honing their sound, and the band will most definitely make the most of their chance to turn heads at the Bowl in just a few short weeks (get tickets here).In just four short years since Space Carnival’s inception in 2013, Jeremy Kraus (guitar), Cameron Fitch (keys / vocals), Chris Meier (bass), and Nick Tassinari (drums) have refined their self-dubbed “slippery disco” sound, merging it with psychedelic jams and loose funk stylings. The band released their debut album, Drawn In By The Sun, in 2016, and has spent their free time off the road this year working on the follow-up record. With the group’s regular rounds across the Northeast, Space Carnival continues to earn respect from fans and get tapped for supporting gigs for acts like Infected Mushroom, Midnight North, dangermuffin, and ELM.Space Carnival at Mazzstock, 8/27/17[Audio: fnordjr]Funk-folk act Goose is not only able to kick out the jams, but since releasing the album Moon Cabin in early 2016, the Norwalk, CT-based quintet has displayed a keen ability to write music with major hooks, three-part harmonies, and exploratory interludes. Goose’s eclectic sound draws from a diverse base of music, and fans love them all the more for their fearless blend of jam, funk, Americana, and whatever else the group sees fit.L4LM caught up with Goose’s guitarist Rick Mitarotonda a few months back, where he discussed the importance of both hitting the road and writing new music regularly: “The game plan is to just keep touring. Just keep making music….We have basic tracks recorded for a whole new album already. We have had these for a while, actually. There has been a lot of focus on getting the touring and ourselves set up as a full-time band. It has cut into time left for finishing that up. I hope we can get the new stuff finished and ready by the end of the year.” (Read the full interview here.)[via goosebandus]The Southern Belles out of Richmond, Virginia, have been touring nationally for the last four years, bringing their southern-tinged psych rock stylings to venues and festivals around the country. The band recently dropped their first radio single, “LA Moves,” off their newly released third album, In the Middle of the Night, which received high marks from critics. With performances at LOCKN’ and Floyd Fest and support gigs for The Revivalists, The Motet, Dopapod, and more, The Southern Belles are a proven, road-tested act that show no signs of slowing up anytime soon.L4LM contributing writer Rex Thomson had this to say in his review of the new album: “The Southern Belles have crafted an enthralling album of songs that perfectly capture the spirit and flavor of seventies progressive rock while avoiding the pitfalls of derivation and imitation with their latest release, In the Middle of the Night. Leaping from style to style with smile-inducing confidence, The Southern Belles created a perfect playground for themselves on their third record, and watching them explore it is truly and thoroughly enjoyable. There seem to be no limits in the realm of their musical imagination; only an endless landscape of possibilities and stylistic combinations as far as the eye can see.” (Read the full review here.)[via Jet Trails Media]Tickets for the Brooklyn Bowl show on October 24th are currently on-sale and can be purchased here.

Professor explores connections between motherhood, public service

first_imgThe Center for Spirituality at Saint Mary’s commenced a two-part lecture series Thursday evening titled “Theologies of Lived Faith.” This series consists of two lectures held on Saint Mary’s campus in Carroll Auditorium in Madeleva Hall.To begin the series, Claire Wolfteich, professor of practical theology and spirituality at Boston University, discussed the importance of motherhood in a lecture titled “Mothering and Public Leadership: Glimpses of Spirituality through Women’s Life Writing.” Wolfteich highlighted the lives of three twentieth century public leaders, Dorothy Day, Dolores Huerta and Lena Frances Edwards, in order to exemplify women’s spirituality and motherhood.Wolfteich opened her lecture with a question that guided her research.“How does the study of Christian spirituality capture the varied experiences of mothers?” she said.This question, Wolfteich said, led her to review case studies of women in the history of Christian spirituality. In addition, the autobiographies of these women acted as a window into her studies on women’s spirituality.“Women’s narratives offer contextual, embodied struggles,” Wolfteich said. “It is very important to hear that word ‘embodied’. So where is the body in your life of Christian spirituality? If you look to women’s own autobiographies often you see a lot about the role that the body plays. You see struggles, you see voices that are coming into being but are not fully realized yet.”By glimpsing into the lives of Day, Huerta and Edwards, Wolfteich found that these women had to balance their social justice efforts with their responsibilities as mothers.“All three of these women are known for what they accomplished in the public sphere, but what is less well known is how they juggled that calling with their calling as a mother,” she said.Wolfteich pointed to Day as an example and said Day connected her motherhood to her work in the Catholic Worker movement.“[Day] describes her public leadership in terms of maternal love,” she said. “She extends her identity as a mother to talk about what it means to lead the Catholic Worker movement.”A common reverence toward Marian devotion exists between in the spirituality of Day and Huerta, Wolfteich said.“Dolores Huerta was very supported by Marian devotion as was Dorothy Day,” she said. “Huerta would often turn to Mary at very practical moments like when her car broke down on the way to an important meeting. She immediately took out her rosary and credited Mary with getting her car back on the rode.”Regarding the life of Lena Frances Edwards, Wolfteich said her work was directly connected with motherhood.“She is an example of a twentieth century, lay, black, Catholic woman whose life was devoted to maternal health,” Wolfteich said. “She delivered babies. She melded mothering, public leadership and spirituality in deeply integrated ways.”Another similarity arises, this time between Edwards and Day, regarding the spiritual experience that pregnancy can foster, Wolfteich said.“Her [Edward’s] own spiritual journey was very much shaped by her own experience of pregnancy and labor,” Wolfteich said. “And that’s true for Dorothy Day as well. Day found the experience of being pregnant to be an experience of co-creating. She felt this incredible closeness to God.”In her concluding comments, Dr. Wolfteich said she chose to study the three women because of their unique experiences.“Part of the reason why I like to look at these three women together is because I think it leads us to wonder about the intersectionality between race, class, spirituality and mothering,” she said. “Day, Huerta and Edwards all stepped out into unconventional, public and private vocations.”The second lecture in the “Theologies of Lived Faith” series will take place on Oct. 8th in Carroll Auditorium on Saint Mary’s campus.Tags: Dolores Huerta, Dorothy Day, Lena Frances Edwards, motherhood, The Center for Spirituality, Theologies of Lived Faithlast_img read more

Steelers on ‘brutal’ 3-game losing streak: ‘We have to stop BS-ing around’

first_img Leonard Fournette confronted fan over alleged racial slur, Doug Marrone says The Ravens don’t have the easiest stretch run to end the year either as they have games against the Chargers and the Browns in the final two weeks of the season, but Pittsburgh knows what it has to do to end the year — it has to win.“It’s been brutal, man,” guard David DeCastro said. “We have to put that behind us, wipe it clean, let’s go back to work Wednesday. It’s a three-week season, it’s all we got.“We’re leading the division right, still? I mean, let’s go get it.” And with games against the Patriots and Saints on the docket for the next two weeks, the Steelers know they have to buckle down.“We are not at the right time right now,” Ben Roethlisberger said. “We’ve got three left against some really good football teams. It doesn’t get any easier.” The Steelers are undoubtedly in their toughest stretch of the season as they have lost three games in a row, including a heartbreaking defeat to the lowly Raiders on Sunday.For Pittsburgh, this has simply gotten to a point where enough is enough. “We have to go out and play our hardest, go out there and execute at a high level,” Maurkice Pouncey said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I’m pretty sure everybody knows we’re here to play football now. We have to stop BS-ing around.”The Steelers are still atop the AFC North at 7-5-1, but they are barely clear of the Ravens who sit at 7-6. Related Newslast_img read more

Allegri counting on goal-king Ronaldo to save Champions League dream

first_imgTurin, Italy | AFP | Cristiano Ronaldo has scored so many goals he gives Juventus “a great advantage” insisted coach Massimiliano Allegri as the Italian side look to overturn a two-goal Champions League deficit against Atletico Madrid in their last 16, second leg tie in Turin on Tuesday.“Cristiano has a lot of goals in his legs, he’s a player that has scored so many goals in the Champions League and in matches of this kind he gets really excited and enthusiastic, having him gives us a great advantage,” Allegri told a pre-match press conference on Monday.Ronaldo has scored a record 121 goals of which 57 have proved decisive in the competition, and has been the top scorer in the Champions League for the last six seasons.This year the 34-year-old Portuguese forward has scored just once having being suspended for one match after receiving a red card against Valencia during the group stages.“I’m convinced at 200 percent that Cristiano will play as Cristiano,” said captain Giorgio Chiellini, who will play his 500th match for the club.“None of us are madmen, none of us believe it’s impossible,” added the veteran defender.The challenge for Ronaldo and the Italians will be to get goals past the tight defence of the reigning Europa League champions.“Atletico haven’t conceded in five games, so that bodes well, it makes us very confident,” joked Allegri.“In the last ten years (Atletico) have been one of the strongest teams in Europe.“They have won three Europa Leagues. We have to be up to that level.”“We believe we have what it takes to reverse this result. We have to understand what needs to be done and to adapt to the evolution of the match.”“We have to be very calm and composed to reserve the result. It would be an incredible feat.”Martin Caceres and Leonardo Spinazzola could be drafted into the Juventus defence with both Mattia De Sciglio and Andrea Barzagli injury doubts and Alex Sandro suspended. “Caceres is an extraordinary player, whose career has been stalled by various injuries, but has quality. Spinazzola has improved a great deal and could well start. I’ll decide in the morning,” said Allegri.“Spinazzola hasn’t played yet in the Champions League, but in these situations it can help to have someone who bring freshness.“If we manage to overturn the first leg result, it will be extraordinary. After that we either think about the quarter-finals or ending the season on the right note.”Atletico coach Diego Simeone warned they were ready to “seize their opportunity” to maintain their push for a first Champions League title.“You can’t just talk about Ronaldo, Juventus are a great team with top players who are used to fighting important battles and are very strong in defence,” said Simeone, who insisted there were no favourites despite his team’s clear advantage.“These are two different matches, the first leg and second leg. We’ll have to seize all the opportunities and do our best, we’ll have less space than in the first leg.“These are two strong teams, one will go through and the other won’t. It’s hard to talk about there being favourites.”“They have great quality, Bernardeschi, Dybala, Douglas, who can accompany Mandzukic and Ronaldo, they all deserve our attention.”Without the suspended Diego Costa, Atletico’s attack will be carried by Antoine Griezmann and possibly former Juve forward Alvaro Morata.“The role of the strikers will be fundamental to exploit the spaces that a team that presses strongly can leave near the goal,” said Simeone.Atletico midfielder Koke added: “It will be essential to start playing with intensity from the first minute, the crowd will help them, but we will be 11 against 11.“We know it will be a war and they will besiege us. But our locker room is united, we are all convinced we can reproduce the beautiful result of the first leg.” Share on: WhatsAppcenter_img FILE PHOTO: Cristiano Ronaldolast_img read more
