Railroad Earth Sets Their Sights On NYC Throwdown With Cabinet

first_imgNext Saturday, March 5th, Railroad Earth will take the stage at NYC’s Playstation Theater in the heart of Times Square (tickets are available here). The roots and Americana-based “newgrass” jam band is made up of six highly talented musicians that can flat out write beautiful songs and take them to great heights, with their ability to stretch them out with some serious jamming. While the group doesn’t like to be labeled in one style or another, their songs are steeped heavily in the bluegrass, rock n’ roll, and celtic traditions.Whether it is Todd Sheaffer‘s skillful song craftsmanship, Tim Carbone‘s ethereal violin, the sound of John Skehan‘s alluring mandolin playing, Andy Goessling literally playing one of nine instruments, or the rhythm section of Carey Harmon on drums and Andrew Altman on upright/electric bass holding it down, one thing is for certain: when all of the pieces come together it makes for a transcendental experience. Railroad Earth’s music simply takes you on a enchanted journey of epic proportions.With five studio albums under their belts, along with the extremely popular live album Elko, Railroad Earth was also brought in to record last year’s highly-acclaimed album Ashes & Dust by Allman Brothers Band/Gov’t Mule’s Warren Haynes, which was followed by a tour in support of the record. In other words, this isn’t a show that you want to miss.Warren Haynes and Railroad Earth Debut ‘Ashes & Dust’ At Intimate Town Hall PerformanceJoining Railroad Earth for the NYC show will be Scranton-based bluegrass outfit Cabinet. The group has been gaining a lot of recognition over the last couple of years, touring all over the country while releasing their third studio album Celebration in early 2015. Make sure to get to the show for Cabinet’s opening set, as there is sure to be plenty of boot-stomping and drinking of barley-laced ales during their set (well, really the entire night). Railroad Earth, Twiddle & More Tapped For Cabinet’s Susquehanna Breakdown FestivalRailroad Earth and Cabinet hit the PlayStation Theater in New York, NY on March 5th.

First homebuyers set to surge

first_img You’ll love this house to the moon and back First Home Buyer Buddy’s Daniel and Lisa Baxter are hosting a First Home Buyers Masterclass at Pimpama on February 28. First time buyers should see less competition given the retreat by investors. Prices on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane’s outer suburbs have not taken as big a hit as Sydney and Melbourne, but are still more affordable. Picture: Penny Stephens. Participants at First Home Buyer Buddy workshop.He said it was easier to get a new first home build with builders “certainly catering to this market in terms of locations of land and design”.But, he warned, that learning about the new build process, pitfalls, and even questions to ask were important for first timers.“It can be really confusing. Some of these building companies are like massive marketing machines, selling the dream and reeling in the buyer with low advertised pricing, and then hitting them up for extras and site costs that the first homebuyer thought were included.” Participants at a First Home Buyer Buddy workshop — organisers of one scheduled for Queensland at the end of the month have been inundated with queries.First homebuyers get ready, experts say conditions are right for a major surge — especially across South East Queensland.The triple effects of affordability, good lending options and a retreat by investors were creating the right conditions for the next generation of buyers, according to First Home Buyer Buddy co-founder Daniel Baxter.Mr Baxter, who’s had to double registration for his First Home Buyers Masterclass scheduled for Pimpama on February 28, said “a softening property market probably has a little to do with it, although Brisbane and the Gold Coast have come out almost unscathed compared to Sydney and Melbourne”.

This is obviously extremely appealing for Millennials.”He said it was important to dispel myths, especially around home loans and deposits, for first time buyers.“These days they have so many more lending options than just going with one of the Big Four banks, who let’s face it, rarely have an appetite for first home buyers with small deposits.”Among the advantages for Queensland newbies was the state’s first homeowner’s grant of $15,000 for new builds.“It’s a very popular and affordable option for a lot of first-time buyers,” Mr Baxter said.“And then you also have access to stamp-duty concessions as well, which certainly helps.” FOLLOW SOPHIE FOSTER ON FACEBOOK MORE: Brisbane homes listed at $300klast_img read more
