Aqueous Gears Up For Headlining Denver Show

first_imgAqueous is on a tear right now. The Buffalo-based groove-rock quartet is hot off two fiery sets at Summer Camp Music Festival, where the band debuted an Oystertune cover, “Pseudo Suicide”, and invited moe.‘s Vinnie Amico to join them during a cover of Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train”. Following upcoming appearances at Disc Jam Music Festival (6/7) and Mountain Music Festival (5/31), Aqueous will shift gears to a more intimate setting, performing a headlining show at Denver’s Bluebird Theater on June 9th.Fans are eager to see Aqueous headline the Bluebird, particularly given the past year they’ve had. As previously reported,Aqueous has been taking the live music space by storm over the past year. The group has been touring nationally in support of heavyweights like Umphrey’s McGee, moe., and Papadosio, as well as playing numerous national and regional music festivals like The Peach Music Festival and Summer Camp Music Festival. They’ve certainly played shows in Colorado—like last year’s inaugural Canyon Jam at the Mishawaka Amphitheatre and a support slot during UM’s most recent New Year’s run at Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium—but Aqueous has yet to headline their very own high-profile show at one of the city’s historic venues. On June 9th, Aqueous will finally headline a Denver venue in their own right, taking over the historic Bluebird Theater. For the upcoming performance, the band will be joined by Colorado’s own Evanoff, a trio that blends analog and digital sounds to create a style they call “dream rock.”“Denver is by far one of AQ’s favorite cities to play music in; Colorado just seems to totally get it, and some of our favorite sets of the past year have gone down out there,” shared guitarist and vocalist Mike Gantzer in March. “We’re gonna go really big for this Bluebird show, and we can’t wait to rage properly with the CO fans on this one!”Tickets for Aqueous’ headlining performance at Denver’s Bluebird Theater on June 9th can be purchased here. For more information about the Bluebird Theater performance or any of Aqueous’ other upcoming shows, head to the band’s website.last_img read more

Dalung Questions Foreign Coach for S’Eagles

first_imgNigeria’s Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung, has questioned the quest by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to appoint a foreign coach when they cannot even pay their local coaches.The NFF is set to soon appoint a new coach for the country ahead of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers with Frenchman and former Cameroun coach Paul Le Guen the front runner. But the sports minister has questioned the rationale behind this, describing it “a fundamental contradiction not easy to swallow”.“When you can’t pay the local coaches, do we still go and look for a foreign coach?,” Dalung questioned.“It’s a fundamental contradiction not easy to swallow and we want the best for Nigeria.”Several of the national team coaches have not been paid for several months by the cash-strapped NFF, who have announced they are shopping for a sponsor for the foreign coach.Previous Eagles coaches including late Stephen Keshi and Sunday Oliseh complained they were owed salaries.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Tobacco display bans effective in reducing smoking in children

first_imgRemoving displays of tobacco products from shops may have reduced the proportion of children buying cigarettes by 17 per cent, claimed a new research.The findings, based on the analysis of the impact of the 2015 tobacco display ban in England, revealed that the percentage of children who smoked regularly fell to 40 per cent by 2016, from 57 per cent before. “The research shows that removing displays made tobacco less visible to children, and that fewer of them bought cigarettes there. This research provides evidence that the introduction of display bans will be an effective measure against children smoking – and could help save them from starting a deadly habit,” said Anthony Laverty, lead author of the research from the School of Public Health at Imperial. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe study published in the journal Tobacco Control, assessed survey responses from 18,000 11-15 year olds from across England between 2010 and 2016.Among the children who smoked, the most common source of cigarettes was from friends, followed by shops. This remain unchanged between 2010-2016. Interestingly, there was no increase in children reporting they had purchased cigarettes from illegal sources. The proportion of children who said they had bought cigarettes from street markets remained steady at under 10 per cent between 2010 and 2016. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveOther reasons that may have helped reduce smoking rates, could be such as the ban on cigarette vending machines and higher taxes, Laverty said. However, the researchers found that more than two in three child smokers had not been refused cigarettes when they last attempted to buy them – a figure that remained unchanged between 2010-2016.Furthermore, the majority of child smokers said it was easy to buy cigarettes in shops. This rose slightly from 61 per cent in 2010 to 65 per cent in 2016. While the results are encouraging, more work is needed to ensure effective tobacco control, the researchers said adding that it is still too easy for children to purchase cigarettes in shops. Besides enforcement, government cuts as well as a licensing system for tobacco retailers – similar to that seen for alcohol – needs to be introduced, the researchers suggested.last_img read more
