Earlier this year, The Disco Biscuits performed three nights at The Fillmore in their hometown of Philadelphia, PA, with opening music from Aqueous. To kick off their first set, the Biscuits opened appropriately with “Coming Home,” a not-so-subtle reference to their return to The City of Brotherly Love. The band also modified the lyrics of “Coming Home,” using the Philly-centric lyrics that were debuted during their New Years Run in 2002 stating “Philly, it’s always been home with a Happy New Year Biscuits coming home.”Of the many highlights included the second set opening “Overture,” which lasted over thirty minutes. This dropped straight into an inverted “Portal To An Empty Head” before swinging through “Overture” once again. The band has shared pro-shot footage from this epic jam, which you can enjoy below:Setlist: The Disco Biscuits | The Fillmore Philadelphia | Philadelphia, PA | 2/2/17Set I: Coming Home-> I-Man-> Vassillios-> Abraxas-> Run Like Hell-> Coming HomeSet II: The Overture-> Portal to an Empty Head-> The Overture, Highwire-> I Remember When, Magellan-> I-ManE: Wet-> Run Like Hell[Setlist/Photo via Disco Biscuits Facebook]
Oyvind Alseth had to wait almost 2,528 minutes for his first career goal in a Syracuse uniform.Once the sophomore got it in his 33rd career game on Tuesday, though, it didn’t even take eight minutes for him to get a second.“I honestly don’t know what was going on out there,” Alseth said. “I guess I was just feeling it.”Against Bucknell on Tuesday, Alseth scored the first two goals of his career and added an assist, helping SU pull away in the second half for a 4-1 win. He hasn’t seen his name on the score sheet often, but the right winger will look to continue his rare offensive form when the Orange (13-2, 4-2 Atlantic Coast) faces North Carolina State (6-5-3, 1-3-2) at Dail Soccer Field in Raleigh, North Carolina at 7 p.m. on Saturday.The Orange has scored 14 goals in its last five games after tallying just 15 in its first 10, and Alseth’s newfound finishing touch gives SU yet another viable scoring option going forward.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We try to get the wings to drive forward and help the strikers score goals,” forward Chris Nanco said. “It was a great showing from him and I’m really happy for him.”Twelve minutes into the second half against the Bison, Julian Buescher lofted a cross from the left side toward the far post. Alseth won the header and directed it across goal, but goalkeeper Clarke Fox got a right hand on it, deflecting it just wide of the left post and preventing Alseth from finally putting one in the back of the net.Sixteen seconds later, Korab Syla sent a cross to Alseth in the same spot at the far post. He won the header again, but this time, the ball was directed to the right post and it snuck past Fox.“He’s got the quality going forward, strikes a great ball, but to score with his head was nice as well,” head coach Ian McIntyre said. “I think it hit him on the ear and went in.”Alseth, who has previously said he had an abundance of prepared celebrations in his back pocket, ran to the right corner flag and simply saluted toward the field while Emil Ekblom, Syla and Buescher joined him.On Alseth’s second goal, in which he dribbled past a diving Fox on the right side of the box and fired the ball top shelf, the celebration got a little more creative.“I’ve had too many celebrations on my mind these past couple weeks, couldn’t figure which one to chose the one time I finally score,” Alseth said of his reaction after the first goal. “But the selfie one (on the second goal) was pre-planned with Julian and Juuso (Pasanen). We Europeans, we had that one figured out.”In the last five games, Syracuse has conceded five goals compared to just one through its first 10 matches. But it’s also received a spark from Alseth that could take some pressure off the forwards to score.“Coach has been complaining a lot that I haven’t been scoring,” Alseth said. “I’m told by my teammates all the time and it was good to finally get it out of the way and get my first two goals.” Comments Published on October 23, 2014 at 12:15 am Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+

Rio Ferdinand has told talkSPORT Manchester United have more riding on Wednesday’s FA Cup replay than West Ham, and NEED to win to save their season.The Hammers will host their final FA Cup clash at Upton Park on Wednesday night, where, after the previous 1-1 draw, the teams will do battle again for a place in the Wembley semi-finals – you can listen to the game LIVE on talkSPORT.Under-pressure manager Louis van Gaal has admitted the FA Cup is United’s last chance for redemption after what has been a disappointing campaign.Having played for both teams, Ferdinand’s allegiance is split, but with West Ham unbeaten in their last ten games the former defender insists the pressure will all be on the Red Devils.“There is a lot riding on the game, but I think Man United need this [the win] more than West Ham,” the ex-England centre-back told talkSPORT’s Ian Abrahams.“I’ve come here with Man United in the past, and it’s always been about Man United, but this time West Ham are in as good, if not better, a position.“[United] need to win for Louis van Gaal, and also for the club. The club doesn’t seem to be in a great place at the moment.“It’s a hard question for me, who do I want to win this game, and I don’t want Man United to win, I just think they need it more than West Ham.“It will definitely be a special night, and this season [the last at the Boleyn Ground] it’s meant a lot more to West Ham than it ever has before.”West Ham have enjoyed one of their best campaigns in recent years, with manager Slaven Bilic steering the club into a new era with a fresh, new-look squad and a new stadium move on the way.And Ferdinand hopes the Hammers will learn from the past and keep their roster of stars together to push the club forward.He added: “When I was here [at West Ham] we had the potential to do really well, but the squad was never kept together. You’d like to think, and I hope, this team will be kept together and would grow together.“Speaking to Slaven, he’s really thinking along those lines. Everything is positive at the moment, the shape of the club, in terms of their position in the league and the new stadium coming, plus they’re still in the FA Cup.“It’s all pointing in the right direction.”Tune into talkSPORT from 19:00 on Wednesday for LIVE commentary of West Ham v Man United in the FA Cup
