Golden Gate Wingmen Offer Grateful Performance In Return To Washington DC

first_imgGolden Gate Wingmen returned to The Hamilton in Washington, DC last Monday, August 15th. While the grouping is still relatively new, these guys have a long track record. It consists of John Kadlecik, Jeff Chimenti, Jay Lane, and Reed Mathis, coming from Grateful Dead-influenced projects like Furthur, Billy and the Kids, Dead & Company and Fare Thee Well, to name a few. The band features an impressive amount of talent and they bring unique touches to covers, as well as some of their own music. Their voices mesh together nicely and they clearly enjoy each other’s stage presence.Kadlecik is a local favorite, and the DC crowd is always energized when the Wingmen come to town. Fans noticed that Chimenti was down to one instrument. There were some tech issues with Chimenti’s organ right before showtime, and after a bit of tinkering, they ultimately pulled it. The night opened with a Dylan cover, “It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry” and a powerful “Crazy Fingers” with a seamless segue into “Dweller on the Threshold.” They hit on several classics, like a 21 minute “Terrapin Station,” a pretty “Throwing Stones” right into “Not Fade Away,” and a “Brokedown Palace” encore to close the night out. The Wingmen are in Asheville tonight, August 17th, before heading to Ohio and Chicago. Check out full audio of their DC show, uploaded by taperjeff, and a gallery of photos by Will Urquhart below.

Orange completes Big East slate winless at home

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Saturday’s 23-6 loss to Connecticut was more than just another loss. It’s a loss the seniors especially would like to have back. ‘For the seniors it was frustrating because it was out last home Big East game and our last Big East game period,’ senior defensive tackle Andrew Lewis said. ‘It was just frustrating that we couldn’t get a win.’ While Syracuse competed a perfect slate (4-0) in conference road games this season, the Orange failed to capture a Big East win at home this season. Pittsburgh, Louisville and Connecticut came into the Carrier Dome this season and issued the Orange a trip of losses that stands as the difference between winning the Big East and finishing fourth. Just one home win would have kept the Orange alive in the conference title race heading into the final week of the regular season. ‘They all hurt equally,’ junior running back Antwon Bailey said. ‘We were pushing towards a goal, one of our goals, and it can’t be accomplished now. We lost at home in front of the home fans.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder text With South Florida losing at home to Pitt this past Saturday, and West Virginia defeating Louisville, Syracuse is firmly entrenched in that No. 4 slot. It cannot drop any lower in the standings, regardless of what happens the last week of the season, and it can only gain a spot if West Virginia loses in one of its final two games at Pitt and against Rutgers. That makes Saturday’s loss cut that much deeper. Had SU won, it would still be very much a live in the title race. Instead, the best it can do is finish third. ‘Lack of execution at home really,’ SU head coach Doug Marrone said in response to why the team hasn’t played well at home. ‘Focus and level of play prior to the week in practice (has been good all year). When we get on that field the level of intensity is the same we just don’t execute.’ Carter moves up the chart With a team-high 67 yards on 19 carries, running back Delone Carter surpassed the 1,000-yard mark this season. He is sitting on 1,005 yards with one regular season game and a bowl left to play. Carter also moved into fourth place on SU’s career rushing list Saturday. Carter passed former Orange great James Mungro, who finished his collegiate career with 2,869 yards. Carter now has 2,876 yards for his career, behind only Larry Csonka (2,934), Walter Reyes (3,424) and Joe Morris (4,299). This and that Freshman place kicker Ross Krautman continued his streak of successful field goals to 16 with a pair Saturday. Krautman connected on attempts from 42 and 35 yards out. He’s currently 17-of-18 on field goal attempts this season. …For the first time all season, SU quarterback Ryan Nassib failed to toss a touchdown pass for the first time all season Saturday. It also marked the first time Nassib has started a game and not thrown a touchdown in his career. …The linebackers led the way for the Orange defense, with Doug Hogue leading the team in tackles, Derrell Smith forcing a fumble and Marquis Spruill collecting a team-high two tackles for a loss of yardage.
