The Main Squeeze Celebrate New Album At The Fox [Photos]

first_imgLoad remaining images Bloomington, Indiana’s own The Main Squeeze came to Boulder, Colorado to celebrate the release of their new album Without A Sound. The band came strapped with new tricks, ultimately throwing down one of the most energetically lifting shows of 2017 at the Fox Theatre to date.The Fox was packed shoulder-to-shoulder on this snowy Friday night to seek out the hype about what is undoubtedly one of the most talked-about, up-and-coming bands in the scene right now. Right out of the starting gates, the band played “One,” “Sweat,” and “405” off the just-released Without A Sound, and the one-two-punch got the nearly packed-to-capacity crowd attentively on their feet.Read More About Without A Sound In This Exclusive Interview With Guitarist Max NewmanAfter giving us a sweet taste of their newest material, the band hopped into Main Squeeze classics “Ebaneezer,” “I’ll Take Another,” “WWC,” and “Dr. Funk,” then brilliantly decided to close the set with two more new tunes, “Get At Me” and “Only Time.” Lead singer Corey Frye’s vocals and lyrics provided such a soulful and powerful structure to work with, while guitarist Max Newman took full advantage of this strength by absolutely annihilating his guitar solos.Along with keyboardist Ben “Smiley” Silverstein, bassist Rob Walker, and the man on the skins Reuben Gingrich, the Main Squeeze walked back out onto the stage for an unexpected and extended encore.Before returning to the music, the band made sure to thank all of their Madison House management (based in Boulder), old friends, new friends, family, recording extraordinaire, crew, and “every single person who has came out and shown this band from a small town in Indiana more love than we could ever imagine.” Corey Frye was speechless to the crowd’s overwhelming response, and took a minute to soak it in, with his jaw dropped to the mic-stand. The band’s heavy-hitters “Love Yourself Somebody” and “Return of the Mack” were executed perfectly to end a night that will go down in Main Squeeze history.Check out the full gallery below.Setlist: Main Squeeze | Fox Theatre Album Release Party | Boulder, CO | 4/28/2017Set: One>Sweat, 405>Spirits>Angelus> Ebaneezer, Miss That Feelin, In a Funk, Rule the World, I’ll Take Another, WWC, Dr. Funk>Get At Me, Only TimeE:: Love Yourself Somebody>Return of the Macklast_img read more

McIlroy’s poor form continues

first_img McIlroy won five times last year, including his second major title in the US PGA Championship at Kiawah Island, but has struggled to reproduce that form in 2013. The 24-year-old finished 41st in the US Open at Merion a fortnight ago and on Wednesday apologised for throwing a club and bending his nine iron out of shape during a final round of 76. Sweden’s Oscar Floren carded a six-under-par 66 to lead by one from former champion Shane Lowry, Michael Hoey, Joost Luiten, Peter Uihlein and Jean-Baptiste Gonnet. Lowry, who was still an amateur when he won at Baltray in 2009, was playing alongside McIlroy – whom he beat in the first round of the Accenture Match Play in February – while the third member of the group, the in-form Thomas Bjorn, carded a 68 that was matched by the likes of Paul Casey and former Ryder Cup captain Jose Maria Olazabal. McIlroy cut a disconsolate figure after his round and there was a long pause when he was asked what was going wrong. “I don’t really know,” the world number two said. “No aspects of my game are standing out as strong. I’m hitting it well on the range and struggling hitting shots out on the course. The game is not coming as easy to me as it did last year. “Off the tee I’m missing it left and right and it’s difficult to stand on the tee and be confident that at least one side is out of play. I don’t know if it’s a case of playing through it or grinding it out on the range. “I just feel a little lost at the moment. I had a good chat with my dad and Michael Bannon (his coach) the Saturday night of the US Open and felt like we got a bit of direction from there, but it’s tough when you have rounds like this or you have tournaments where you think you’re getting somewhere and all of a sudden you’re stopped in your tracks and you’ve got to re-assess everything again. “I’m staying patient and I don’t want to say I’m accepting this, but there’s nothing else I can do apart from trying to play well, practise and try to hit better shots.” Rory McIlroy admitted to feeling “a little lost” as he struggled to a first round of 74 in the Irish Open that left him eight shots off the lead and battling to make the cut.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
