The Disco Biscuits Share Pro-Shot “Portal” > “Overture” Jam From Philly

first_imgEarlier 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]last_img read more

Holcomb announces funding for enforcement initiatives at school-bus stops

first_imgIndianapolis, IN— Governor Eric J. Holcomb recently announced grant funding for increased traffic enforcement at school-bus stops. About 230 Indiana police agencies receive federal grants for highly visible traffic enforcement including speeding, aggressive driving, and school bus stop-arm violations. The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute is awarding approximately $380,000 to 39 agencies for overtime school-bus stop enforcement over the next two months.Gov. Holcomb signed a new school-bus safety law that took effect July 1. State law requires a school bus to use flashing lights and extend its stop arm while loading and unloading students along a roadway. State law also requires drivers to stop while the arm is extended. On highways divided by a physical barrier or unimproved median, traffic traveling in the opposite direction as the school bus may proceed with due caution.Law-enforcement agencies awarded additional grant funding are listed below in alphabetical order. Police agencies may apply for future traffic-enforcement grants, including school-bus stop enforcement grants, through Aug. 30 by clicking here.Area recipients of the funds include:Connersville Police: $3,111Decatur County Sheriff: $3,000Jackson County Sheriff: $39,680Seymour Police: $3,000last_img read more

PINSTRIPE : Marrone not only member of SU experiencing homecoming

first_imgNEW YORK –– Much has been made of Doug Marrone’s return home, but the Syracuse head coach is far from the only one from Syracuse with New York City ties. Several key players hail from the tri-state area and will join Marrone in coming home for SU’s first bowl game since before any of them ever arrived on campus.For that group, representing Syracuse at Yankee Stadium in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl is something that couldn’t have been scripted any better. Especially for the seniors, who will finish their collegiate careers in a city with a lot of familiarity.‘It’s like a dream,’ said senior linebacker Doug Hogue, a Yonkers, N.Y., native. ‘It’s just a great feeling. When I was home for Christmas, I had all my family telling me, ‘I can’t wait to come to the game,’ and my friends were all telling me, ‘I’ve got my tickets.’ It’s just a great feeling having this game here close to home.’Hogue isn’t the only player with an opportunity to play close to home, either. Nearly a third of SU’s roster hails from the tri-state area. Others are just a few short hours away. All of them will have a rare opportunity against Kansas State on Thursday.And with all the distractions that have been keeping the players busing this week, that continues to be the silver lining heading into Thursday’s game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSaid Hogue: ‘To top off my career at Syracuse University in front of my family would be the best feeling I’ve had since I began playing football.’[email protected] Published on December 28, 2010 at 12:00 pm Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
