After a fun first night at the Kings Theatre, the String Cheese Incident returned to Brooklyn last night to complete their two-night run and their Summer tour to a close. The show was filled with thrilling moments, excellent jams, spot-on covers, and a high octane guest spot from Gregg Allman Band’s Scott Sharrard.Coming out of the gate hot, the band opened with a thumping, extended version of “Valley Of The Jig” that really got the crowd moving. The soulful and funky “Black And White” came next, and the band took that song out for a walk before segueing into a fun, Latin-tinged “Yo Se”. After a quick version of “Farther”, the band played “Sweet Spot”, a track from the band’s new SCI Sound Lab project. SCI kept the newer songs going with a fun take on the Kyle Hollingsworth tune “Stop Drop Roll” before finishing up set one with a huge, locked in version of their classic “Round The Wheel”.After a short break, SCI returned to the stage and immediately picked up where they left off. “Desert Dawn” was the perfect set two opener. After a spirited run through the song’s form, the band performed easily the jam of the night, moving as a unit through several unique, progressive rock-like sections before bringing the song to its natural end. The impressive improv section was a true highlight in a show filled with them.After the raging set two opener, the band returned to their Sound Lab to perform another new track, “Get Tight”. After a short-but-sweet version of the new song, the band picked things back up with a funky version of “Rain” that gave the band another opportunity to stretch out their improv muscles, with Michael Kang coming in at the perfect time to bring the jam to its climax.Rhythm guitarist / singer Billy Nershi then stepped up to the microphone to introduce a special guest, none other than Scott Sharrard. Sharrard played the entire Allmans Family Incident with the band at The Peach Festival on Friday, serving as band leader as the band worked through a set of Allman Brothers classics. The band seemed to be loving the Allman Brothers musical vibe, and kept the party going with incredible versions of “Hot’Lanta” and “Southbound” that simply had the audience going bananas. Sharrard was particularly impressive, trading lead solos with Michael Kang in true tension-release fashion, creating an enormous amount of energy in the room. Anyone who was at The Peach on Friday was gifted with some bonus Allmans material, and anyone who missed The Peach was absolutely blessed to catch some of the magic from that performance. Sharrard and SCI also managed to slip in a version of “On The Road” in between the two covers, and overall created a huge, non-stop segment of musical magic.Watch “Hot ‘Lanta” below, courtesy of Gabe Sokker.Sharrard left the stage to raucous applause, and the band kicked into the evening’s final segment. Starting with “Way Back Home”, the band moved quickly into “Whiskey Before Breakfast” before landing on an out-of-left-field, set-closing cover of Led Zeppelin‘s epic rocker “Kashmir” that left the crowd begging for more.The band took a short break before delivering a three-song encore to finish their summer tour. Opening with “Honky Tonk Heroes”, the band then turned in a quick version of “Hobo Song” before creating one more opportunity to rage with their fans, bringing things to a close with a huge version of “Rosie” that had the crowd dancing all the way out of venue and into the streets of Brooklyn.After a great summer that saw the String Cheese Incident bring their carnival-esque live show across the country, the band capped off their summer with an excellent show that found the band truly locked in and in command of their collective sound. The fun covers, spirited jamming, and all-around positive vibes all add up to a band that’s currently at the top of its game.The String Cheese Incident will now take a few months off before they play three nights at Suwanee Hulaween this October.The String Cheese Incident | Kings Theatre | Brooklyn, NY | 8/15/2016Set 1: Valley of the Jig, Black and White > Yo Se, Farther, Sweet Spot, Stop Drop Roll, Round the WheelSet 2: Desert Dawn, Get Tight, Rain, Hot ‘Lanta, On the Road > Southbound, Way Back Home > Whiskey Before Breakfast > KashmirEncore: Honky Tonk Heroes, Hobo Song, Rosie Feat.

Friday night’s loss seemed to be the final straw for Wisconsin men’s hockey head coach Mike Eaves.After another Big Ten defeat against Ohio State, the Badgers were still searching for their first conference win of the season Saturday.In game one of Wisconsin’s two-game road series against Ohio State, the Badgers got off to a hot start when forward Corbin McGuire scored on a rebound less than five minutes into the game to give Wisconsin an early one goal lead.While Wisconsin remained ahead by a goal one period, the second period completely belonged to the Buckeyes. A goal by Ohio State’s Tyler Lundley returned the momentum to the Buckeyes, and they never gave it back.With two minutes to play in the period, OSU forward Nick Shilkey put the Buckeyes up for good with a wrist shot that found the top left corner of the net.The Buckeyes entered the third leading 2-1, and that was how the game ended following a scoreless third period. The Badgers were outshot 42-20, and after the game, it appeared Eaves had run out of patience with his young team.“They have to start to get it going,” Eaves said. “That’s what is a little bit frustrating as a coach, and I think it’s on them as players. After Christmas, there are no true freshmen anymore. We should be better, so we have to figure that out.”Eaves was also critical of senior goaltender Joel Rumpel, who made forty saves in Friday night’s 2-1 defeat.“He kept us in it, he kept it 2-1, but I’ll be the first to say he’ll want both goals back,” Eaves said. “He played like the rest of the team. He was inconsistent.”But on Saturday in game two of the series, the Badgers seemed to take their coach’s words to heart, responding with an impressive bounce-back performance in Saturday night’s rematch that gave them their first Big Ten win of the season.After Ohio State scored just over a minute into Saturday night’s game, Wisconsin’s Grant Besse erased the Buckeyes’ lead in the 12th minute of the period with his 10th goal of the year.The teams remained deadlocked at one at the first intermission, but Ohio State’s Christian Lampasso opened up the scoring in the second period eight minutes to put the Buckeyes up by a goal once again.Down 2-1 in the second period, Wisconsin was in the same situation they were in the night before. However, this time, it would be a much happier ending for the Badgers.Four minutes after Ohio State took the lead, Wisconsin senior Joseph LaBate scored off a pass from Adam Rockwood to bring the Badgers and the Buckeyes even at two goals apiece.The game remained tied at two until just over four minutes were left in the final period when Rockwood and LaBate combined for a goal again. This time LaBate fed Rockwood for the late go-ahead goal.Led by goaltender Joel Rumpel, who made 28 saves, the Badgers held Ohio State without a goal in the final four minutes to escape Columbus with their first conference win.Next weekend, the Badgers will return to the Kohl Center to host Michigan State, hoping to put together their first winning streak of the season.

Moenchengladbach’s French forward Marcus Thuram took a knee after scoringBerlin, Germany | AFP | French star Marcus Thuram and England international Jadon Sancho joined the protests over racism and police brutality in the United States on Sunday after scoring in the Bundesliga.Thuram took a knee after scoring for Borussia Moenchengladbach in the game against Union Berlin.Sancho marked his goal for Borussia Dortmund against Paderborn by lifting his jersey to reveal a T-shirt bearing the words “Justice for George Floyd”.On Saturday, Schalke’s US midfielder Weston McKennie wore an armband against Werder Bremen bearing the words “Justice for George”.Thuram’s gesture echoed past protests by National Football League players in the US in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.The issue has surged back into the headlines following the death of unarmed black man George Floyd during a police arrest in Minneapolis.Sancho revealed his protest after scoring in the 57th minute – and was promptly yellow-carded for his troubles.Thuram, a 22-year-old French striker, continued his recent hot form with two goals as Borussia Moenchengladbach beat visiting Union Berlin 4-1.Because of social distancing rules, goal celebrations were muted but after Thuram headed his team’s second goal just before half-time he took the opportunity to make a solitary statement, kneeling and bowing his head.At half-time, his club tweeted a photo with the caption: “No explanation needed.”After the game, Gladbach coach Marco Rose said Thuram had his backing.“Marcus has made the point. He has set an example against racism that we all support,” Rose said.Thuram, whose father, French World Cup winner Lilian runs the Education against Racism foundation in Paris, was the latest show of solidarity with the current protests sweeping the United States.On Saturday, McKennie said it had been crucial to make a stand. “To be able to use my platform to bring attention to a problem that has been going on too long feels good!!!” he tweeted.Meanwhile, in the United States, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said there “remains an urgent need for action” as violent protests rocked the country.“The protesters’ reactions to these incidents reflect the pain, anger and frustration that so many of us feel,” Goodell said. “As current events dramatically underscore, there remains much more to do as a country and as a league.”Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown returned to his native Georgia to lead a peaceful protest march in Atlanta.“I drove 15 hours to get to Georgia, my community,” Brown said. “Being a celebrity, being an NBA player, don’t exclude me from no conversations at all. First and foremost, I’m a black man and I’m a member of this community.”-‘Am I next?’ –NBA star LeBron James was among those who contrasted pictures of police officer Derek Chauvin’s knee on Floyd’s neck with the kneeling protests of former NFL star Colin Kaepernick in 2016.Kaepernick, who was ostracised by the NFL for kneeling during the national anthem in protest against racial injustice, has launched a fund to pay for legal representation for protesters who need it.Serena Williams tweeted a video by Nike, which also sponsors Kaepernick, picking out the line: “Don’t pretend there’s not a problem in America.”Two-time Grand Slam tennis champion Naomi Osaka posted pictures of protests from Minneapolis on her Instagram account.“Just because it isn’t happening to you doesn’t mean it isn’t happening at all,” wrote Osaka, whose mother is Japanese and whose father is Haitian.Rising US tennis star Coco Gauff, a 16-year-old African American, showed on Instagram the faces of black Americans who died in recent years at the hands of authorities or white fellow citizens.“Am I next?” Gauff asked.Share on: WhatsApp
