Watch Dean Ween And Father John Misty Jam Backstage At Bonnaroo

first_imgBonnaroo is known for its collaborative spirit. When artists arrive at the festival, its understood that sit ins and jam sessions are not only suggested, they are expected. Sometimes the artists just want to keep playing when their sets are over, in backstage situations that, with so many artists from all walks of life on The Farm, can be once-in-a-lifetime.That’s just what happened this Sunday, when Ween and Father John Misty played back-to-back sets to close out the Which Stage. While Dead & Company played their epic two-set finale on the What Stage, Dean Ween and Father John Misty jammed out in Ween’s dressing room. Ween plays bass, and Father John plays drums, a throwback to his days in Fleet Foxes. With Kurt Vile and others looking on in the background, it’s awesome to see these musicians playing for the joy of playing.See below for a video of this rare performance!last_img read more

Anastasiya Gorelina’s full health sparks hot streak

first_img Published on September 27, 2017 at 10:34 pm Contact David: [email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+ While her team defeated Dartmouth on Sept. 8 in four sets, Anastasiya Gorelina played in one set and recorded zero kills. Then, her production took off.“I don’t know what changed inside of me, but it was like…” Gorelina said. Then she snapped her fingers. “I needed to be more aggressive.”Since that game, she’s caught fire. In Syracuse’s past seven games, Gorelina has had at least nine kills, including a career-high 20 against Boston College on Sept. 20. In her first eight games of the season, she never had more than four. The junior outside hitter’s contributions have mirrored SU’s recent winning run, too, as the Orange (9-6,1-1 Atlantic Coast) have captured five of its last seven.Gorelina’s recent uptick in productivity is because she is finally healthy, SU head coach Leonid Yelin said. She had problems with her back all throughout childhood and into college, he added, especially her sophomore year. Despite Gorelina’s apparently ailing back, she played in 105 sets last season, tied for the third-most on the team. In all but one game, she played at least three sets. In the first eight games of 2017, Gorelina participated in three sets or more just three times. Now, after a period of rest, she is playing the best volleyball of her career.

She, too, notched a career-high in kills against BC with 18. The sophomore credits her chemistry with Gorelina as to why the two are both having such recent success.“I think we’re different kinds of hitters,” Lukacs said, “so I think it’s fun to feed off what the other can do.” Commentslast_img read more
