Phish Brings Out 20+ Minute “Disease” In Energetic Alpharetta Opener [Watch/Recap]

first_imgFor the eighth time in their career, Phish took the stage at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park in Alpharetta, GA along their 2016 fall tour. Five shows in, the tour as a whole has been heavy on the new Big Boat material, though certainly making room for a hearty serving of their classic material. Phish seems to be locked in as they go, hitting the Southeast with a gusto. How would their much anticipated return to Alpharetta fare?The band got started with “A Song I Heard The Ocean Sing,” playing the darker tune for the first time on tour. Trey Anastasio took it into a whirlwind solo, before releasing the tension with lighthearted versions of “AC/DC Bag” and “Back On The Train.” With the looseness of two groovy tracks, the rhythm section of Jon Fishman and Mike Gordon fueled a great jam out in “Blaze On.” Phish seems to be putting longer jams in the first set, and while “Blaze On” stayed within the box (aka Type I), it was evident that the band was tight-knit and having a ton of fun.Watch the official stream of “A Song I Heard The Ocean Sing” below.Gordo got to take the lead next, as the band brought out “Sugar Shack” for the first time on this tour. Trey nailed the song’s carefree melody throughout, extending it for a nice solo with some fun arpeggios. This was a longer version than usual, adding an exciting energy to the song. Page McConnell took the lead next, singing along on the peppy new Big Boat tune “Things People Do.”Next up was a rocking “Birds Of A Feather,” with Trey leading a great tension-build and release solo. This was a tight jam that kept the energy of the first set high, but it was a “Mercury” that was a real highlight of the set. Though “Mercury” didn’t appear on Big Boat, it was debuted at the same time as tunes like “Blaze On” and “No Men’s.” Now played for the second time on this tour, it’s certainly exciting to have the song in a tighter rotation. Fishman played the Marimba Lumina at times during the song’s lighter section. This was a great “Mercury,” as the band extended the version with a tight jam out at the end.“Let’s Go” came up next, another new original tune that was left off the new album. “Let’s Go” was actually the center of a discussion in the Roling Stone interview that was published today, as producer Bob Ezrin opted to leave the Gordo original off the album despite his and Trey’s objections. The upbeat number was played for only the second time, but let’s hope it stays in rotation. It’s a fun one! “Alaska” came next, treating the Alpharetta crowd to some bluesy funk. This was a raging version of “Alaska,” but the band took the mood into a sentimental place with their new song, “More.” The track came to life in the live setting, with Trey rolling out some great guitarwork to bring the song, and set, to a grand conclusion.After the break, it was Gordo that hit the opening rumbles of set two with a blistering, 21-minute version of “Down With Disease.” The jam started out with rock and roll energy and turned a corner into a more floating segment, but then curved back into some deeper bass-driven grooves. This was an exploratory “Disease,” moving into a progressive rock sound before Trey led the jam into a rock and roll call-and-response. Things only got spacier, drawing deeper into an exploratory funk before Trey moved over the Marimba Lumina and really nailed the low-end synth bombs. He eventually picked back up the guitar and rocked the opening notes of “Carini.”Watch the official stream of “Down With Disease” below.The “Carini” quickly went into an ambient jam session, as the band kept things lighthearted in a typically heavy song. The light touch continued as the group segued into Fuego track “Winterqueen,” and this was a beautiful version with a nice, soaring solo. Trey brought the song to a close with its melody, but it was Fishman that ushered in the subsequent “Ghost.” The improvisational section went from rhythmically funky to melodically uplifting, then back to slow and funky to close out the song.Page then hammered out the opening notes of “Possum,” and Trey kept the song loose and rocking. This was clearly a crowd pleaser, with the energy riding high. It was the tour debut of “Slave To The Traffic Light” that would bring the set to a close, putting a truly triumphant finale to a great set of music.For their encore, Phish closed out the show with their first cover of the night, Rolling Stones’ “Loving Cup.” Trey was absolutely shredding the ending of the song, bringing one last beautiful buzz to Alpharetta. This was a great memorable night of music from Phish, and we can’t wait to hear what they have in store for night two tomorrow.You can see the full Phish.net setlist below.Setlist: Phish at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park, Alpharetta, GA – 10/21/16Set 1: A Song I Heard the Ocean Sing, AC/DC Bag > Back on the Train, Blaze On, Sugar Shack, Things People Do, Birds of a Feather, Mercury, Let’s Go, Alaska, MoreSet 2: Down With Disease > Carini > Winterqueen > Ghost > Possum > Slave To The Traffic LightEncore: Loving CupThis show was webcast via Live Phish.

South Burlington named one of ‘Top Ten Best School Districts with Housing under $500,000’

first_imgSouth Burlington has been rated in the top ten school districts nationally with housing costs under $500,000, according to a review by a national rating firm. While millions throughout the nation prepare for traditional back to school activities, some families are searching for affordable housing based on local schools or desirable school districts. In some cases, proximity to quality schools is so important buyers may choose to rent close to a preferred school until the right home becomes available, especially if they’re running out of time before the first day of school.”I recently worked with clients that were moving to the Northwest Chicago suburbs from out of state,” said Nina Rocus, a Realtor in Schaumburg, Illinois. “They originally looked for homes close to particular school districts, and wanted to move in before the school year started so their son would be enrolled on time for this school year. But because they felt they were running out of time they ended up renting. They still want to find a home in the spring so we will start looking again then.”Because proximity to a quality school is such a high priority for some families as they search for their next home(1), buyers and sellers in cities with top ranked schools or school districts can often expect to see higher median list prices as compared to the statewide median list price, sometimes as much as 10 to 28 percent(2) higher.”Without a doubt the ‘right’ school district increases value by 12 to 14 percent in my area even in today’s market,” said Maria Picardi-Kenyon, a long-time Realtor located in New Jersey. “I’ve spoken with many clients who are convinced that a preferred school district provides as much as 20 percent or more value to a home.”To help families as they search for academic excellence and affordable housing during this year’s back to school season, Move, Inc., the leader in online real estate, today releases median list prices in ten communities ranked with high education quality scores, along with tips on how to expedite this season’s real estate search before the school bell rings.Median List Prices For Cities Home to the High Scoring School DistrictsIn an April 2010 review of 17,377 cities and towns in 49 states(3), Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana and Kentucky led the review with the highest ranking school districts in terms of educational quality scores and median list prices(4) under $200,000. The review took into consideration K-12 public school enrollment data, student test scores, and population data that determined average education quality scores, among other data.Single-Family Homes – Median List Price Under $200,000Town/CitySchool DistrictEducation Quality Score(3)State Median List Price(5)City Median List Price(5)Mason, OHMason City96.56$135,900$189,500Fishers, INHamilton Southeastern95.89$129,900$ 184,900Fort Thomas, KYFort Thomas94.22$154,900$ 174,900Allison Park, PAAllison Park94.07$198,900$ 169,900North Royalton, OHNorth Royalton92.54$135,900$ 179,000Data from the same April 2010 review(6) also indicated the highest ranking school districts in terms of educational quality scores with median list prices between $200,000 and $345,270 today can be found in Vermont, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Minnesota.Single-Family Homes – Median List Price Under $200,000 to $500,000Town/CitySchool/School DistrictEducation Quality Score(7)State Median List Price(8)City Median List Price(8)Edina, MNEdina94.74$199,900$345,000Zionsville, INZionsville Community94.03$129,900$325,000Brookfield, WIElmbrook93.94$184,000$298,900South Burlington, VTSouth Burlington93.74$269,500$272,500Germantown, WIGermantown School District93.65$184,000$285,900Factors Associated With Selecting Housing Near Quality SchoolsWhile the National Education Association’s study on student achievement reports the proximity of affordable housing in stable neighborhoods remains a key component to a student’s success, buyers also often consider location to jobs, shopping, freeways, and property taxes among other things when searching areas with high ranked school districts.”Clients focused on a particular school district are often inclined to favor neighborhoods that have great accessibility to community facilities like parks, pools, tennis courts, running/biking trails, as well as access to retail and restaurants,” said Tom Thornton, an EcoBroker with Realty Austin of Austin, Texas. “In Austin, popular neighborhoods with good schools can have an average negotiation range of two to three percent from list price, while the resale advantage can be as much as a five or 10 percent premium compared to neighborhoods without popular amenities.”Is Bigger Better?The ability to live, earn and learn often comes with a price in communities that serve larger student populations. According to The United States Department of Education, three states – California, Florida and Texas – account for 45 of the nation’s largest public school districts with an average of 169 school choices per district.Median list prices for single-family homes listed for sale on the Move Network in California, Florida and Texas in July 2010 were$335,000, $215,000, and $179,900 respectively, while the national media price was $212,900 during the same time period.Average active list prices for single-family homes listed for sale on the Move Network in the nation’s top three largest school districts in July 2010 were $816,545 in New York, $879,743 in Los Angeles, and $425,869 in Chicago.Nation’s Largest School Districts / Market Median List PriceCitySchool DistrictEducation Grade(9)State Median List Price(10)City Median List Price(10)New York, NYNYC SchoolsPop: 1,049,831B+$299,900$816,545Los Angeles, CALA Unifiedstudent pop: 735,058B$335,000$879,743Chicago, ILCity of Chicago School Dist-299. pop: 409,279B$209,900$425,869Miami, FLDade County School District. pop: 352,536C$215,000$765,599Ft.

As a team, we have to work hard every day to do what the coach wants because we have the ability to do really well, but we need to work hard every day.’With the Milan derby coming up, he added: ‘We’re a great team and anyone who comes up against Inter knows it will be difficult for them.
