moe. wrapped up a successful two-night run at the Saranac Brewery last night, playing to a local crowd at the beloved Utica, NY venue. After a couple weeks off of the road, the energy during moe.’s two night run was through the roof, and culminated in a wild celebration for last night’s performance.The band started the run by playing some fun covers, including a bust-out of Grateful Dead’s “The Other One” in the middle of their original “Silver Sun.” You can watch that here. Night two saw the group mostly sticking to originals (with the exception of House of Pain’s “Jump Around,” led by percussionist Jim Loughlin), opening with “Seat Of My Pants” and rocking out classics like “Spine Of A Dog,” “Not Coming Down,” “Wormwood,” and more. They ended set one with “McBain,” and you can watch a clip of the jam below.After a great “Happy Hour Hero” opened set two, the band broke into their classic “Bearsong.” This version saw the band literally dump dozens of inflatable bears onto the crowd, only fueling the fires of a great jam session. Watch as it all goes down below!After “Jump Around,” the band worked in classics like “Tailspin,” “Opium,” and “lylelovitt.” to keep the set rocking. After a foray into “Downward Facing Dog,” the band capped the set with a version of “32 Things.” Finally, it was “Buster” that concluded the night, keeping the jams alive through one of moe.’s most beloved songs!Check out the full setlist from Saranac below, courtesy of the band.Setlist: moe. at Saranac Brewery, Utica, NY – 7/30/16I: Seat Of My Pants, Big World > Ricky Marten > Spine Of A Dog > Not Coming Down > Wormwood > Okayalright, McBainII: Happy Hour Hero, Bearsong > Jump Around > Tailspin, Opium > lylelovitt., Downward Facing Dog > 32 ThingsEncore: Buster
Investigators in Fort Lauderdale are asking for the public’s help in finding a man who exposed himself and attacked an employee at a massage palor.The incident was reported on Saturday at Angel Day Spa just off of Davie Boulevard.According to the report, the suspect knocked on the door of the spa and once inside, began inquiring about prices. The suspect then exposed himself to the woman working the front desk. The victim ran to the back of the business to retrieve a phone to call 911 and at the point, the suspect chased after her. The employee then ran back to the front of the business with the suspect right behind her.“He grabs her, throws her on the ground and attempts to sexually batter her,” Police Sgt DeAnna Greenlaw said. “She fought her way through. She never stopped fighting. She is profusely screaming.”The suspect eventually stopped and left the business.“This is a violent offender who was physically overpowering a female,” Greenlaw said.The Spa has since handed over all of the surveillance tapes to authorities.Officials say the man was between the ages of 25 and 35 and stands about 5 feet 11 inches. He is said to have dark hair and a full beard and was last seen wearing a black baseball cap with a Marlins logo, a black t-shirt, black sweatpants, and a white Louis Vuitton monogram mask.If you have any information about this incident, you are asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
(REUTERS) – Maria Sharapova said yesterday she remains fully committed to making a successful comeback from her doping ban following a decision by the French Open to deny her a wild card entry.Sharapova was widely expected to be fast-tracked into the year’s second grand slam tournament, which she has won twice, but the French Tennis Federation (FFT) took the unexpected decision on Tuesday to refuse her entry.“If this is what it takes to rise up again, then I am in it all the way, every day,” Sharapova said on Twitter yesterday.“No words, games, or actions will ever stop me from reaching my own dreams. And I have many.”Sharapova’s return from a 15-month ban has split opinion in tennis circles, with some players arguing she is being given special treatment after receiving wild cards for tournaments in Stuttgart, Madrid and Rome.Accepting the decision to bar her from the French Open without rancour would give the Russian a chance to rise above the furore, according to former world number three Pam Shriver.Shriver said Sharapova needed to come to terms with what had happened and turn her attention to preparing for Wimbledon, where she is already one of the bookmakers’ favourites for the title.“She’s smart and savvy,” Shriver, who won 21 grand slam women’s doubles titles, said on ESPN. “She needs to take a step back and reconcile that her return to major tennis is going to have to wait and not be bitter about it.“It’s a chance to be above it all and complimentary.”Sharapova tested positive for heart disease drug meldonium at last year’s Australian Open.The Russian said she had taken the drug “legally” throughout her career to treat medical conditions and had not realised it had been added to WADA’s banned list a few weeks before the tournament began.She was initially banned for two years but the Court of Arbitration for Sport reduced the suspension to 15 months on appeal after finding she was not an “intentional doper” .The five-time Grand Slam champion, one of the sport’s biggest names, is guaranteed a place in the Wimbledon qualifying event but will need a wild card to get straight into the main draw at the All England Club.
