Trey Anastasio & More Make Surprise Appearance With Soule Monde In NYC [Videos]

first_imgOn Thursday night, Soule Monde—the “avant funk” duo comprised of Trey Anastasio Band drummer Russ Lawton and keyboardist Ray Paczkowski—hit Symphony Space on New York City’s Upper West Side for an evening of “live music, drink specials, and easy-going revelry.” However, the party got considerably less easy-going and much more exciting when the band took the stage with their most notable longtime collaborator: Trey Anastasio himself.Trey would go on to stick around the entire show, helping the duo through a number of songs off their various studio releases. The Trey Anastasio Band family guests didn’t stop at Trey, either. Over the course of the performance, percussionist Cyro Baptista and saxophonist James Casey both jumped into the fray.Trey’s sit-in wasn’t entirely out of left field. Beyond his obvious connections to the Soule Monde members, Trey—an Upper West Side resident—has been known to come and join in when his various musical friends are playing in the area, from his extended sit-in with Tedeschi Trucks Band at The Beacon Theatre in 2017 to his 2018 appearance with Bob Weir and Phil Lesh at Radio City Music Hall to his surprise guest spot with Jennifer Hartswick, Nick Cassarino, and Christian McBride at the tiny Rockwood Music Hall late last year.Below, you can watch a number of front row videos from Soule Monde’s Symphony Space performance with Trey, James, and Cyro courtesy of YouTube user LazyLightning55a.Soule Monde w/ Trey Anastasio, James Casey, Cyro Baptista – “Influence”Soule Monde w/ Trey Anastasio, James Casey, Cyro Bapista – “Bernard”Soule Monde w/ Trey Anastasio – “Slide B”For more information about Soul Monde, head to the band’s website.last_img read more

Turtles Hurtle Through the Sea Magnetically

first_imgExperiments on sea turtles have shown that they follow the earth’s magnetic field to the exact beach where they were born to lay their eggs.  “It is almost as if they were equipped with a compass pointing towards the beach in question,” says an article on EurekAlert.  “So they can correct any deflection they are subject to: transport by boat, ocean currents…”  Like a guiding beacon, the field keeps them on track even when ocean currents carry them far off course.  The researchers feel that other cues, like smell, may also guide them home.    The film Life’s Story 2 from Exploration Films shows footage of sea turtles laying their eggs and the young finding their way to the water.The sea is a mighty big place to get lost.  One beach on a coastline is a mere speck from hundreds of miles out in the ocean.  Who put a compass in a turtle’s head?  Who gave them all the hardware and software to transport their bulky bodies thousands of miles to home base?  Who gave them the ability to dig and lay eggs?  Who taught the babies when to hatch at high tide, and make their way to the water?  How many trillions of turtles had to sink to the bottom or die of beach sunburn while mutations did their random walk through possibility space?  The marine biologists are looking for a few good minds.(Visited 16 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Dr. Jerry Shih, Director of Comprehensive Epilepsy Center at UCSD, was in studio to tell KUSI’s Lauren Phinney all about the new drug and an event taking place this weekend designed to raise awareness.LOKK for Epilepsy (dedicated to LOKK Legal) is a San Diego based non-profit organization founded by the family and friends of Koorosh Khashayar and we are dedicated to raising funds and awareness for epilepsy research. Our critical mission is to find a cure for Epilepsy, not just control the seizures, to find a cure for this disorder and to prevail over the challenges that effect so many people each day from experiencing a full life. We will do this through educating and funding research to accelerate treatment.Koorosh Khashayar (owner of LOKK Legal, a San Diego based Law firm) passed away (on September 6, 2015) at the age of 32, from a seizure. He was a pillar of his community and a successful young attorney. Koorosh was an amazing man who worked hard to help the people in his community. He not only donated funds to great causes (Miracle Babies, Susan G. Komen for Breast Cancer, Big Brother/Big Sister of San Diego and many more) , but he also volunteered his free time to feed the homeless at the Urban Angels in San Diego and walked the 60 miles to support the Susan G. Komen foundation’s 3-Day walk for breast cancer awareness numerous times.Koorosh was a man to be admired, who held a high regard for helping others, and he was taken from us too soon. Koorosh was diagnosed with Epilepsy after he had his first seizure when he was only 17 years old. This is when Koorosh and his family began to understand the frustrations of dealing with this disease. The lack of information, funding and research, the lack of actual knowledge about the medication prescribed by doctors, and ongoing testing of multiple medications was alarming. Koorosh was put on different medications and treated by multiple doctors in many cities across California, from Stanford to the University of San Francisco, to San Diego. None of these doctors or medications succeeded in curing his Epilepsy, they only went to attempt to control the seizures. The medications he took (and all epileptic patients take) only reduce the likelihood of a seizure but do not provide a cure. He and his family were very frustrated over the years being told by many doctors that he would be living with this forever, and continue to take various medications, each with their own side effects.Koorosh lived a great life, he did not let this effect how he lived, loved and cared for everyone he encountered. Most of the people that knew him did not know what he was dealing with on a day to day basis. He was very proud and did not want any sympathy, he wanted to be the one who helped others. He was full of life and his family and friends want to ensure the frustration and loss that they have experienced does not affect others. This is why this foundation has been formed, to get the word out, to get the needed funding to finally find a cure for Epilepsy.
