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

Mexican Government Tries to Regain Control in Michoacán after Confrontations

first_img Mexican security forces attempted to regain control in the troubled state of Michoacan (west), where 24 people died on July 23 during confrontations between the Police and alleged members of the local drug cartel, “Los Caballeros Templarios”.

(Photo: AFP/Ronaldo Schemidt) Six other attacks against the Police were registered on July 23 in the Michoacan’s sub-region of Tierra Caliente, resulting in shootings where two agents and at least 20 “suspected criminals” were killed, CNS reported. By late 2006, Michoacan was the first region where former President Felipe Calderón (2006-2012) deployed his broad military operation against drug trafficking cartels, generating a wave of violence with over 70,000 murders during his tenure. A federal government source confirmed that the clashes were directed “against Los Caballeros Templarios,” but no group has been officially accused of the attacks. By Dialogo July 26, 2013 Almost seven years later, Enrique Peña Nieto’s government (2012-2018) sent its first major military reinforcement to Michoacan because of the violence in the agricultural region of Tierra Caliente, where the main Mexican port of Lázaro Cárdenas (Pacific) is located. July 23 was the bloodiest since May, when an Army and Federal Police operation in Tierra Caliente was launched to safeguard the population of extortions, kidnappings, and murders perpetrated by Los Caballeros Templarios. The government of Michoacan stated that the roads where the ambushes occurred, located near Arteaga, Infiernillo and El Carrizo, have been reopened. The government’s National Security Council (CNS) reported that no incident involving the federal security forces had been registered in Michoacan, although there was an attack on the evening of the 23rd, which had not yet been officially confirmed. “Two (Federal Police) agents were killed and six others were injured” in an attack against a convoy near Pichilinguillo, CNS stated. last_img read more
