Widespread Panic Covers Black Sabbath For The Fourth Consecutive Show

first_imgOn Friday, it was “Fairies Wear Boots.” Saturday, “Sweet Leaf.” Sunday, “Children Of The Grave.” Last night, Widespread Panic continued their trend of covering a Black Sabbath tune in the encore, bringing out a wild debut version of “Electric Funeral” – in the middle of “Chilly Water” no less.Panic was on hand at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis, MN, playing to an enthusiastic crowd on a fall tour run that will ultimately land them in Colorado for three nights. With all eyes on the Halloween run, Panic continues to serve up fiery dishes of Southern-fried jam rock. The band has yet to repeat any songs on this tour as well, continuing to mine their deep catalog over the course of these four nights.“Let’s Get Down To Business” opened the show, before the classic Pops Staples cover “Hope In A Hopeless World” came next. The band touted out classics like “Heroes” and “Old Neighborhood,” included a great “Party At Your Mama’s House > Stop Breakin’ Down Blues” and ended the first set with “Conrad.”The band got to jamming in the second half, with “Steven’s Cat” opening and great segues like “Time Zones > Solid Rock” and a “Machine” that would ultimately lead into “Little Kin,” “Travelin’ Light,” “Barstools & Dreamers,” a mini “Drums” jam,” “Red Hot Mama” and “Fishwater.” Of course, you know the ending by now, as Panic brought out “Chilly Water” and segued into their debut of “Electric Funeral,” before returning to “Chilly Water” to end the set.In honor of the debut Black Sabbath cover, listen to the first three Sabbath tunes that the band played in Milwaukee below (though the “Fairies Wear Boots” video is actually from Austin).Fairies Wear BootsSweet LeafChildren Of The GraveYou can see the full setlist below, courtesy of PanicStream.Setlist: Widespread Panic at the Orpheum Theatre, Minneapolis, MN – 10/25/16Set 1 Let’s Get Down To Business, Hope In A Hopeless World, Heroes, Old Neighborhood, Makes Sense To Me, I’m Not Alone, Party At Your Mama’s House > Stop Breakin’ Down Blues, Conrad (60 mins)Set 2 Steven’s Cat, Wondering, Time Zones > Solid Rock, Machine > Little Kin > Travelin’ Light > Barstools & Dreamers > Mini-Drums > Fishwater > Red Hot Mama > Fishwater (80 mins)Encore Chilly Water > Electric Funeral > Chilly Water (16 mins)Notes [‘Electric Funeral’ first time played (Black Sabbath); 4th consecutive show featuring Black Sabbath in encore (Halloween theme?)]last_img read more

Program enables students to confront societal issues in international settings

first_imgThe goal of the International Summer Service Learning Program (ISSLP) is for students to become aware of complex social issues that will help them discern their responsibility as global citizens in our world, director of international engagement at the Center for Social Concerns Rachel Tomas Morgan said.ISSLP is a community-based learning abroad program Tomas Morgan designed, implemented and directs, according to the Center for Social Concerns website. The program has averaged 300 applications annually and has 64 positions available to freshman, sophomores and juniors, Tomas Morgan said.“Students encounter day-to-day realities facing local communities in international settings,” she said in an email. “We have some amazing sites of deep learning and cultural immersion. I encourage students to come to an ISSLP Information Session and to come by Geddes Hall to review binders full of information from past participants so as to discern which sites are the best fit for their own particular interests, skills and experiences.” Photo courtesy of Lindsey Whalen Students participating in an ISSLP in Buenos Aires, Argentina engage with the local community in a schoolyard game. Online applications close on Oct. 29, and site committees review these applications throughout the month of November. Students are then invited to interviews for positions, and confirmations of participation are due by Dec. 27.“While it is a competitive process, we encourage all students — frosh, sophomores and juniors — who can see themselves living and working in community with communities to apply,” Morgan said.Senior Molly Knapp spent 10 weeks in Trujillo, Honduras for her ISSLP during the summer after her sophomore year. Knapp worked at a Catholic children’s home as a special education, English and math teacher for elementary and middle school kids.“Some of my favorite memories would definitely be in the classroom,” Knapp said. “It was always awesome when I was teaching a difficult math concept and to finally see the light go on in one of the kid’s eyes who had been struggling for a while.”Prior to her ISSLP experience, Knapp had also completed a Summer Service Learning Program (SSLP) — another Center for Social Concerns program — in Minneapolis at a community center for the Latino population working specifically with senior citizens. Additionally, Knapp said she has always had a desire to work with kids, being the oldest of four kids herself.“I applied to do an ISSLP partly because of my experience with the SSLP,” she said. “I just found so much joy in working with both kids and senior citizens, and really wanted to expand my horizons by learning more about the world and how to become a global citizen by connecting with other populations.”Although she is still trying to discern what her future path will be, Knapp said she will hopefully be involved with international human rights law, which relates directly to her ISSLP.“I worked with a lot of kids whose parents had been members of the international drug trade, and that is an issue that I have been studying in my classes, and is something that I’m very interested in continuing to learn about and hopefully tackle in a career in policy and legislation in the future,” Knapp said.Knapp said she went down to Honduras with one other Notre Dame student, but at the site there were two long-term volunteers who were Notre Dame graduates. Having that connection and being able to talk about their Notre Dame experiences helped make the transition to living abroad easier, she said.As for who should apply, Knapp said although each site has a different level of spirituality attached to it and that the sites are not identical in terms of experiences, the students who apply should all share a particular attribute. “I would say that this program would be good for anyone who is willing to step outside of their comfort zone and to really form relationships with a wide variety of people in different circumstances,” Knapp said.
