Widespread Panic Unearths TV Appearances From CNN Rooftop, ‘Conan O’Brien’ [Watch]

first_imgWhile live concerts remain on indefinite hiatus, Widespread Panic has kept their fans happy by continuing to release a non-stop carousel of archive live content to the band’s YouTube. Tuesday saw the jam stalwarts unearth footage from vintage appearances on CNN as well as NBC‘s Late Night with Conan O’Brien.These latest videos come in a continuing series of archive content that so far has included footage from the 2002 documentary The Earth Will Swallow You, along with the 2003 concert film Live from the Backyard, a video from Widespread Panic’s 10/5/13 show in Charleston, and much more.The first clip, chronologically speaking, comes from Panic’s April 6th, 1995 appearance on Late Night with Conan O’Brien. O’Brien himself had only been on the air for less than two years at that point in his career, meanwhile, the band was hitting its stride after eight years of relentless touring. Appearing on the comedian’s show to promote 1994’s Ain’t Life Grand, the Athens, GA blues bulldogs tear into “Can’t Get High”. While none of these television spots feature the kind of live improvisation that has made WSP a tour de force of the jam world, it displays the band’s ability to play to any audience on a national stage.Related: The Lame Ducks Ft. Bob Weir, Dave Schools, Jay Lane, & Jeff Chimenti Bring Grateful Dead Spirit To Georgia Comes Alive [Watch]A little over two years later on June 19th, 1997, Panic returned to Late Night for a performance of Vic Chesnutt‘s “Aunt Avis”. The band came back to NBC to help promote 1997’s Bombs & Butterflies, and this performance finds the bind firing on all cylinders as guitarist Michael Houser is able to fit more exploration into the truncated appearance. Finally, the band returned on August 4th, 1998 for the third and final time to perform J.J. Cale‘s  “Travelin’ Light” following the release of Light Fuse Get Away.The day prior to that final Late Night appearance, Panic could be found on the rooftop of CNN where the band performed a medley of songs for fans passing by. For nearly six minutes throughout the broadcast, CNN cut in and out of Panic’s set from the roof as they ran through fan favorites like “Disco”, “Chilly Water”, “Hope In A Hopeless World”, and “Wondering”. Between songs, frontman John Bell laid on his Southern charm as he explained the band’s commitment to its fans because, after all, “Fans are really the ones who gave us our first job.”Watch vintage footage of Widespread Panic on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and CNN.Widespread Panic – “Can’t Get High” – Late Night with Conan O’Brien – 4/6/95[Video: Widespread Panic]Widespread Panic – “Aunt Avis” (Vic Chesnutt) – Late Night with Conan O’Brien – 6/19/97[Video: Widespread Panic]Widespread Panic – “Travelin’ Light” (J.J.

‘City of the Future’ is First Solar-Powered Town in America – and It Was Created by a Former NFL Player

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreIt’s being hailed as the city of the future.Babcock Ranch is a town in Florida that is being hailed as America’s first ever city that is completely powered by solar panels—and it is quickly shaping up to be an eco-friendly role model for the rest of the nation.Perhaps most notably, the town is the brainchild of Syd Kitson, the former NFL lineman for the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers—an athlete with a big vision. He first began development of the 17,000-acre property near Fort Myers by transforming the abandoned mining land into an expansive solar farm comprised of nearly 350,000 panels.RELATED: Instead of Burning Coal, New Fuel Emits Zero Harmful Emissions – and It’s Made From SewageTaking this developmental approach ensured that the town could be self-sustainable, even as it grows exponentially in size and population.“We think about the way we develop differently… It’s the most environmentally responsible, the most sustainable new town that’s ever been developed,” Kitson told Fox News. “And, it’s the first solar-powered town in America. And we’re very proud of that.”Eco-friendly Babcock Ranch offers residents a chance to live their environmentally conscientious dreams as they bike to work, or take the electric shuttle bus to the town square.CHECK OUT: After Becoming Largest European City to Offer Free Public Transit, They’re Enjoying a ‘Revolution’ From Their BusesOne resident, Josh Day, tells Fox News why being part of the Babcock community is truly of importance to him: “To be able to be a part of a community of everyone that cares, and wants that for them, not only for themselves but also for their children and their grandchildren, to have it be a more clean Earth whenever our children are older.”Although the current population is still small, the town is expected to house nearly 45,000 residents in the not-so-distant future – and the houses only cost between $190,000 and $499,000.(WATCH the news coverage below) – Photo by Babcock RanchWatch the latest video at foxnews.comShine Some Light On Good News By Sharing This Story With Your Friends On Social MediaAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more

Marco Silva “made a big mistake” explains Everton player’s agent and…

first_imgEarlier this month, Marco Silva explained to the press his reasons for letting Nikola Vlasic leave on loan to CSKA Moscow. The Everton manager stated that with the number of players at his disposal capable of playing behind the striker, the 20-year-old might not have received the number of opportunities he desired, and, aware of this, the attacking midfielder accepted the chance handed to him by the Russian side.Since his exit, the Toffees have started the season tepidly, picking up just six points from their opening six games, and the Croatia U21 international’s father believes this is down to Marco Silva’s decision to let his son leave on loan.Speaking to Championat in Russia, Yoshko Vlasic said: “Marco Silva is under enormous pressure because he gave Nikola away on loan. Many fans and journalists believe Everton have big problems in midfield, and Nikola is the player they need.Embed from Getty Images“Vlasic told Silva before leaving he considered himself the best midfielder in the team. The manager made a big mistake.”Seemingly not happy with what happened over the summer, the father and agent appears to have gone on the attack about his son’s Everton situation, and Yoshko Vlasic doesn’t think he will return to Goodison Park anytime soon.He continued: “Nikola is enjoying his time and is playing at CSKA. He has an excellent manager and excellent support from his team. Nikola might stay at CSKA next season, but it’s too early to talk about it.”Joining from Hajduk Split last summer for just under £10m, Vlasic made just 19 appearances in all competitions for Everton, picking up two goals and an assist along the way.Since moving to Moscow, he’s already surpassed that, scoring two goals and assisting his teammates twice in just six games.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
