Ghost Light has announced a special post-Phish late-night show in New York City. The band–featuring electrifying Joe Russo’s Almost Dead and American Babies guitarist Tom Hamilton, incomparable pianist and keyboard player Holly Bowling, former Dopapod drummer Scotty Zwang, American Babies guitarist and vocalist Raina Mullen, and Nico’s Gun bassist Steve Lyons–will play at the relatively new Times Square venue Sony Hall following Phish’s performance at Madison Square Garden on Sunday, December 30th.Following a monumental first year as a band that saw them play major festivals like The Peach Music Festival, High Sierra, and LOCKN’, in addition to a slew of sold-out club shows across the country, Ghost Light will return to New York City for their third and final performance of 2018 for this special late-night performance.Ghost Light Shares Full-Show Audio From Recent Debut-Heavy Burlington Show [Listen]With their next-level improvisations, their stellar catalog of original material and their tasteful selection of covers ranging from artists such as Bob Dylan, Radiohead, and beyond, Ghost Light’s impressive on-stage presence has quickly made them one of the most exciting new bands on the live circuit. The musicianship and connectivity displayed on stage are palpable, and it leads to an exciting result that most young bands can only dream of realizing.The exciting quintet will end their impressive first year with previously-announced appearances at Holidaze, Phil Lesh‘s Deadhead paradise Terrapin Crossroads, The Fillmore Philadelphia in a coveted support slot for The Disco Biscuits, and now, a high-profile Phish late-night show in New York City.Sony Hall is a new, top-flight music venue in Times Square, located on West 46th Street, that was opened by Blue Note Entertainment Group and Sony back in April. The venue is the former home of The Diamond Horseshoe, a historic vaudeville-era venue and nightclub dating back to 1938, and the classic art deco designs of the venue have mostly been kept intact by the new owners.Sony Hall is outfitted with Sony gear, with a multi-dimensional audio technology integrated within the venue to create a “spatial audio experience”, essentially an elevated level of surround sound audio which is created by approximately thirty speakers that line the room. Sony Hall is primed to become a major venue in the New York City market, and will certainly be a trusted location for late night shows for years to come due to its proximity to Madison Square Garden.Tickets for Ghost Light at Sony Hall are on sale NOW at this link.

The coronavirus crisis cost the global tourism sector US$460 billion in lost revenue during the first six months of 2020 as the number of people traveling plunged, the United Nations said Tuesday.Revenue lost between January and June amounted to “around five times the loss in international tourism receipts recorded in 2009 amid the global economic and financial crisis,” the Madrid-based World Tourism Organization said in a statement.International tourist arrivals fell by 440 million during the period, or 65 percent, with Asia, the first region to feel the impact of Covid-19, seeing the steepest decline, it added. “This represents an unprecedented decrease, as countries around the world closed their borders and introduced travel restrictions in response to the pandemic,” the Tourism Organization said.While tourism is slowly returning to some destinations, the UN body warned that “reduced travel demand and consumer confidence” would continue to hurt the sector for the rest of the year.It predicted international tourist arrivals will plunge by around 70 percent in 2020 owing to the coronavirus.International tourism arrivals rose by four percent in 2019 to 1.5 billion, with France the world’s most visited country, followed by Spain and the United States.The last time international tourist arrivals posted an annual decline was in 2009 when the global economic crisis led to a four percent drop.The UN body said it expects it will take two to four years for tourist arrivals to return to 2019 levels.Topics :
(BBC) – Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale has arrived at Tottenham Hotspur’s training ground as he nears a return to the club.Wales international Bale, 31, is expected to rejoin Spurs on loan. He flew into Luton Airport yesterday before travelling to the training ground in Enfield, North London.Bale originally joined Spurs from Southampton in 2007 before moving to the Spanish giants for a then world record £85M in 2013.He has gone on to score more than 100 goals for Real and won four Champions Leagues.“Until I’m told Bale is a Tottenham player, I still think and feel and respect the fact he’s a Real Madrid player,” said Spurs boss Jose Mourinho.It is also anticipated Real Madrid full-back Sergio Reguilon will complete his transfer to Tottenham on Friday. The 23-year-old Spain international played last season on loan at Sevilla, winning the Europa League.Bale’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, told BBC Wales Sport on Wednesday that talks over a move were “slowly progressing”.Barnett said: “Gareth is closer to leaving Madrid than at any time in the last seven years. We are still negotiating. We shall see how it goes.”Spurs boss Jose Mourinho refused to speculate on the discussions, saying, “He is a Real Madrid player and I don’t comment on players from other clubs. I have to respect that. It’s better not to speak.“I tried to sign him for Real Madrid, which was not possible to do during my time there. But the president followed my instinct and my knowledge and the season I left he brought Gareth to the club. It’s not a secret, even Gareth knows that.”In July 2019, Real cancelled a deal for Bale to join Chinese Super League club Jiangsu Suning, and he played 20 times for the Spanish champions last season.Tottenham were beaten 1-0 at home by Everton in their first game of the new Premier League campaign on Sunday.

To further encourage social distancing, Publix is implementing one direction shopping isles.The grocery chain says the new measure will hopefully create more space between customers searching for items on the same isle by cutting down on the traffic flow:“The health and well-being of our customers, associates and communities are our top priority,” a spokesperson for the company said in a statement to WPTV. “To help with customer traffic flow, we have added directional markings, companywide, to our aisles. This will allow customers and associates to better distance themselves while on the aisles.”The news comes in conjunction with other measures such as employees being able to wear gloves and face mask after several Publix employees became ill.The store has also installed Plexiglas barriers between cashiers and customers, and no-touch pay options at some locations.
Submitted by The Plant PlaceEach summer we embark on ordering a large variety of bare root deciduous trees and shrubs for the upcoming year which will represent about one quarter of our overall plant inventory.It’s an opportunity to acquire old standbys and popular new varieties for our customers. Since bare root material is less costly than finished, it’s one of the ways we can offer more competitive pricing.The plants arrive in January and February. Shrubs are containerized, while trees are entered into both pots and ‘grow bags’ and then lined out in our fields. Plants are held for up to seven months until they ‘root out’ completely, come up to size, and then are entered into our inventory. June and July are always exciting as plants ‘finish’, and we can finally get them onto the retail display lot.Currently, we have a great selection of:Hydrangea (including ‘Strawberry Vanilla’, ‘Bella Anna’, ‘Quick Fire’ tree-form, ‘Endless Summer’ varieties)Ornamental Ninebark (including ‘Little Devil’, ‘Amber Jubilee’, ‘Center Glow’)Barberry (including ‘Sunjoy Golden Pillar’, ‘Admiration’, ‘Orange Rocket’) Spiraea (including ‘Superstar’, ‘Tor Birchleaf’, ‘Mellow Yellow’)Flowering Cherry and Crabapple (including ‘Spring Wonder’, ‘Little Twist’, ‘Akebono’, ‘Ruby Tears’, ‘Sargent Tina’, ‘Golden Raindrops’) Facebook9Tweet0Pin36
