Discover Elle King

Elle King is the stage name for Tanner Schneider. She calls herself a “banjo slinging baby.” Think of her as Meghan Trainor (“All About The Bass”) with a slightly naughty edge. Not that that is bad thing, at all, in our opinion. She’s the daughter of Rob Schneider, Mr. Deuce Bigelow.

“Ex’s & Oh’s” is the first single from her forthcoming album.

The Endless River To Be Released in November

image005

Hardcore Pink Floyd fans who hadn’t given up on the band after The Division Bell or grown out of getting stoned and listening to The Wall and watching The Wizard of Oz should be pleased by this announcement.

It’s clear that this release will be for their most hardcore of fans. It will be broken up in to virtual LP sides and will be all instrumentals save for one track, “Louder Than Words.”

The album will be released on Columbia Records on Monday, November 10, 2014 and is produced by David Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, Youth and Andy Jackson.

David Gilmour said:

“’The Endless River’ has as its starting point the music that came from the 1993 Division Bell sessions. We listened to over 20 hours of the three of us playing together and selected the music we wanted to work on for the new album. Over the last year we’ve added new parts, re-recorded others and generally harnessed studio technology to make a 21st century Pink Floyd album. With Rick gone, and with him the chance of ever doing it again, it feels right that these revisited and reworked tracks should be made available as part of our repertoire.”

The Endless River’s track listing runs across four sides, to invoke the album listening experience:

 

THE ENDLESS RIVER

SIDE 1

 

Things Left Unsaid

It’s What We Do

Ebb And Flow

 

SIDE 3

 

The Lost Art of Conversation

On Noodle Street

Night Light

Allons-y (1)

Autumn’68

Allons-y (2)

Talkin’ Hawkin’

 

SIDE 2

 

Sum

Skins

Unsung

Anisina

 

SIDE 4

 

Calling

Eyes To Pearls

Surfacing

Louder Than Words

    6th Annual Long's Five Points Barstool Classic

    5pFive Points

    The 6th Annual Bar Stool Classic in Five Points. All proceeds from this event benefit the Babcock Center Foundation. The Bar Stool Classic was born out of the desire to increase community awareness of the Babcock Center and their mission to support people with lifelong disabilities.

    In 2009, the Five Points Association and the Babcock Center Foundation, the fundraising arm of the Babcock Center, hosted the first Bar Stool Classic with much success. The 9-hole putt-putt tournament attracted over 100 people in its first year and a great time was had by all. It attracted a group of people as varied as the patrons of Five Points, from college students in their best golf attire to couples in their 60’s. The event was deemed a success and the planners began looking to the next year. In 2012, the event sold out at registration and hosted over 400 patrons. Now in its 6th year, the Bar Stool Classic is a much anticipated annual event.

     This year, it's a 10-hole putt-putt tournament (including second chance hole) and after party immediately following with live music at Jake's!
