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.

The real reason Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny went on strike

first_imgThe real reason Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny went on strike Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny has refused to take part on the club’s pre-season tour of America (Picture: Getty)Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny went on strike in the belief the club had priced him out of a potential return to France.The 33-year-old stunned Unai Emery when he informed the Spaniard he was refusing to take part in the club’s pre-season tour of America having reported for training earlier this week.Emery reacted furiously and immediately informed Arsenal’s head of football Raul Sanllehi, who sanctioned the decision to publish a statement condemning Koscielny’s actions.It read: ‘Laurent Koscielny has refused to travel to the US for our pre-season tour.ADVERTISEMENT Advertisement SPONSORED Read More More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man City‘We are very disappointed by Laurent’s actions, which are against our clear instructions.AdvertisementAdvertisement‘We hope to resolve this matter and will not be providing any further comment at this time.’Arsenal subsequently flew to the States without their long-serving centre-half who will now train with the Under-23s while a resolution is sought.Koscielny, who has 12 months left on his current deal, wants to return to France after nine years in north London, amid interest from the likes of Lyon and Bordeuax.ESPNFC claim Arsenal want £10m for their want-away skipper, a fee which is likely to put off Koscielny’s suitors given he turns 34 in September and only recovered from a career threatening Achilles injury, which kept him out for eight months, back in December.The former Lorient defender is also said to feel his playing schedule was mismanaged following the injury he suffered during the 2018 Europa League semi final second leg against Atletico Madrid, and is dismayed at the direction in which the club is headed.Arsenal have signed only Brazilian teenager Gabriel Martinelli so far this summer and risk losing long-term target William Saliba after Tottenham made a late attempt to hijack a deal that was on the verge of completion.A move for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney also appears to have stalled, while attempts to prise Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace have failed after a £40m opening offer was rejected, while the Eagles are not interested in any of the players Arsenal were willing to offer up in part exchange.More: Arsenal FCArsenal flop Denis Suarez delivers verdict on Thomas Partey and Lucas Torreira movesThomas Partey debut?
