Trey Anastasio Trio has announced webcasts for all three of their upcoming sold-out performances at the Civic Theatre in New Orleans, LA via LivePhish. The highly anticipated three-night run will take place this week from Thursday, April 26th, to Saturday, April 28th, coinciding with the beginning of this year’s New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.The trio—comprised of Trey Anastasio and his longtime solo bandmates Russ Lawton (drums) and Tony Markellis (bass)—is touring in place of the full Trey Anastasio Band while keyboardist Ray Paczkowski recovers after undergoing surgery to remove a brain tumor last month.You can trace the origins of the modern Trey Anastasio Band back to this trio of musicians. As Anastasio explained in a Facebook post announcing the Trey Anastasio Trio tour plans, the tour’s opening night, April 17th, 2018, marked the 20th anniversary of the first time Trey shared the stage with Tony and Russ, as part of a gig billed as 8 Foot Fluorescent Tubes, which featured the debuts of “Sand”, “First Tube”, and “Mozambique”, among others. That core group–Trey Anastasio, Russ Lawton, and Tony Markellis–soon became the original iteration of the Trey Anastasio Band.The trio mounted their first full tour in May of 1999. That tour saw the birth of many of the songs that still make up TAB setlists to this day, with just Trey, Russ and Tony holding things down. The band (and the music) continued to evolve from there, with Trey going through a litany of lineup changes, additions, and evolutions over the years, eventually landing on the robust lineups we’ve seen in recent years.While the full Trey Anastasio Band will be back in due time, the opportunity to get a taste of this rare Trey Anastasio Trio tour from their couches.

AS the Inter-Guiana Games kick off today, Nathan Yannick Saul, captain of the Inter-Guiana Games male basketball side, is confident in his side’s ability to get off to a winning start. Having already played in the games in 2013 and 2014, the 18-year-old shooting guard is looking to take that experience into this year’s fixtures. In a chat with the Guyana Chronicle, Saul opened up on his basketball experience to this point.Nathan Saul“I already got over the nervousness of playing (in IGG), right now it’s about getting back at Suriname for the loss we had in 2014,” Saul said. He added that the loss in 2014 was very hurtful, since Guyana were leading with minutes to go, but managed to have the game slip through the cracks.As one of the returning players on the side, Saul is easily one of the most experienced players. However, in addition to his experience, Saul is a prolific scorer and he is able to put up high numbers at any given time. He touched on finding the balance between turning that scoring on and playing within the team system.“On my school team I’ve had to be the primary scorer but since I’m playing now with one of the best guards in Stanton Rose, I’m able to play my position as shooting guard. “Also playing with one of the most athletic three guards in the country in Travis Belgrave with Neil Wills at centre makes my job easier.”He believes that this team is finally able to match Suriname with rebounding, having more players who can now jump and rebound.“Half of our team are highflyers, and that was always our downfall against Suriname, but now we have the height, the jumping ability and the speed to match them. This year we’re ready for them and I want us to sweep them. No game they should win and that’s what we are going to go out and do.”Today’s campaign to the sweep begins at 13:00hrs at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall as Guyana come up against Suriname in a best-of-three series.
“I don’t think through the first five innings you could see anybody throw the ball better,” Counsell said of Woodruff, who struck out eight.In the sixth, though, Turner greeted him with a single. He hit Manny Machado with a pitch. An out later, Muncy poked an opposite-field single to put the Dodgers ahead 2-1.The Dodgers then tacked on another run in the sixth and two more in the seventh, on their way to a victory that sends them to Milwaukee needing to win one of the last two games for a trip back to the World Series.The Brewers, on the other hand, sounded confident that they’ll have the home crowd behind them. They’ll also have Miley to start again in Game 6, with his one-batter cameo in Game 5 little more than a nationally televised bullpen session.This time, it will be for real.Asked how long he expects to pitch in Game 6, Miley said: “Nine innings.”Brewers manager Craig Counsell, left, removes starting pitcher Wade Miley, center, after just five pitches as shortstop Orlando Arcia, right, looks on during the first inning of Game 5 of the NLCS on Wednesday at Dodger Stadium. (Photo by Harry How/Getty Images) Woodruff and Miley and the Brewers staff were just about the only ones who knew what was coming. Even center fielder Lorenzo Cain said he had no idea what was happening when Miley left the game after walking leadoff hitter Cody Bellinger on five pitches in the first inning.“I didn’t expect that to happen,” Cain said. “I saw Miley starting and the next thing I know Woody was in the game. I had no idea. That’s what we’ve been doing. We’re sticking to it. It’s been working so far.”The Brewers have essentially done away with traditional pitching roles, particularly late in the season and into October. With so many talented relievers, and the postseason schedule providing so many off days to allow them to stay relatively fresh, Counsell has had the bullpen door swinging open early and often.Once the roles of “starter” and “reliever” have been blurred, there was no reason not to try to maximize their advantage against the platoon-heavy Dodgers with a little misdirection.Counsell’s plan was to start the left-handed Miley to get the Dodgers to start most of their right-handed hitters. He’d then pull him after one batter, bringing in the right-handed Woodruff, creating a dilemma for Roberts. Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco “They’re trying to get matchups and we’re trying to get matchups,” Counsell said. “They’re a very tough team to get matchups against. ”Roberts, however, had a suspicion that Counsell might be up to something, which is why he still started the left-handed hitting Max Muncy, placing him at second base for the first time in more than a month so he could squeeze his bat into the lineup.It paid dividends because Muncy delivered the go-ahead hit against Woodruff in the sixth inning.That sequence subjected Counsell to second-guessing about leaving a pitcher in too long, ironic for a manager so aggressive about changing pitchers.Woodruff had buzzed through the Dodgers’ lineup for four innings. After an infield hit and an unearned run in the fifth, though, he took the mound in the sixth with 56 pitches.When the inning began, Woodruff was facing Justin Turner … for the third time.As all followers of modern managerial strategy know, many teams aggressively avoid having a pitcher go through the lineup a third time. What’s more, Woodruff had not thrown more than 50 pitches since throwing 58 on Sept. 2.“I felt pretty strong,” Woodruff said. “I’m never going to say I was tired. I didn’t feel that way. A couple pitches maybe just got away from me a little bit, but I felt fine.”Counsell said the bullpen’s workload from Tuesday’s night’s 13-inning game was a factor in sticking with Woodruff, but also that he liked his stuff.Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire LOS ANGELES — As Wade Miley warmed up to “start” for the Milwaukee Brewers, Brandon Woodruff was hiding nearby.Woodruff was waiting in a tunnel by the bullpen, staying out of sight of the Dodgers, but prepared to hit the mound just after lineup cards had been exchanged and Miley had finished his warm-ups.The right-hander was a pawn in the managerial chess match between the Brewers’ Craig Counsell the Dodgers’ Dave Roberts, unable to even tell his parents that he was going to be pitching as many innings as he could in Game 5 of the National League Championship Series on Wednesday.“I was told not to inform anybody else,” Woodruff said. “Just keep it to myself.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
