PODCAST: The Zipper Club Brings Their Punk Universe To Shaky Knees Festival

first_imgFollowing the most recent episode with Trey Anastasio Band’s Jennifer Hartswick, Live For Live Music Presents: Inside Out with Turner and Seth is back with a new episode featuring a rundown of the 2017 Shaky Knees Festival and a conversation with the three core members of new wave-inspired outfit Zipper Club.Turner and Seth discuss in length the Shaky Knees Festival, which takes place in Centennial Park in Atlanta, GA, and this year featured headliners from LCD Soundsystem, The XX, Cage the Elephant, Pixies, Portugal. The Man, Phoenix, Ryan Adams, next tier acts such as Moon Taxi, The Revivalists, Sylvan Esso, J. Roddy Walston & The Business, Dr. Dog, Saint Motel, and up and coming acts such as The Record Company, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Con Brio, and the aforementioned Zipper Club. The festival, now in its fifth year, is hitting its stride as it continues to expand on a diverse lineup of acts from across the musical spectrum.You can listen to the new episode of Live For Live Music Presents: Inside Out with Turner and Seth below:During the formal interview section of the podcast, Turner and Seth discuss Mason James‘ former band Cerebral Ballzy, a NYC punk rock act that saw a fair deal of success over the years, and how James made the transition from a style with plenty of edge to a band that, as Turner describes it, “what happens when you have the sophistication of fine art meeting the raw passion of punk, and you throw in a little bit of synth-pop.”The group goes on to discuss working with former Smashing Pumpkins member and A Perfect Circle guitarist James Iha, who produced a number of tracks on their upcoming debut album. The first time they worked with Iha was in a dingy basement in Brooklyn, NY, and had an immediate connection which continued as the band wrote additional tracks for their forthcoming album.Zipper Club also opened up for Tears for Fears on their first tour ever, as the band had played with Curt Smith at Coachella, had become close friends with the band, and the opportunity to come out as the support act happened rather organically.Lissy Trullie, who grew up in New York City, and was an art and film student at Parsons and The New School explained, “For the record, I was a huge fan of punk….The Queers, The Exploited….I was a little punk.” With drummer Damar Davis, the trio was complete, and moved forward with James’ vision of exploring diverse musical genres outside of the punk universe.In the live setting, Zipper Club is making a point of creating a multi-sensory performance, with a full-on light show, as well as stretching songs out while on stage from an improvisational standpoint. James explains, “Look out for the future, we have been improvising a lot recently….we are trying to expand beyond that. You try to take it to different levels, you try to do different solos, and make it a unique experience for every viewer. Sometimes it goes wrong, sometimes it goes beautiful, it’s that weird awesome thing you get at a live rock n’ roll show.”James discusses why he was amped to play Shaky Knees, as Turner and Seth began to throw some jabs at other non-festival festival’s such as Coachella, which are more of a scene than anything else, “[Shaky Knees] is full of people that want to see music. It has been really refreshing. Everybody was so nice.”Explaining one of the craziest gigs James ever played at a punk show, he says, “So I was in the UK, and we did an entire photo shoot of us puking into Christmas things….puking into Santa hats. So I used to have to fucking puke on cue. That was our thing. It is not a cool thing, everybody listening, don’t do this, please. It’ll just give you acid reflux and fuck you up later in life. But, that was our shtick, so we had a whole photo shoot of us [Cerebral Ballzy] puking on Christmas in the UK.” Nobody said the punk life was easy.Turner also attempts to get the band to divulge the ultra secret information of how they came up with the band name. You’ll just have to listen to find out….**For more Inside Out With Turner And Seth episodes, head to their SoundCloud, iTunes, or Stitcher page. You can also email the podcast producers here to submit feedback which may be incorporated into future episodes!**You can check out past episodes of Live For Live Music Presents: Inside Out with Turner and Seth podcast below:Jen Hartswick Recounts Her Pinky Swear With Christian McBride, A Fateful Call From TreyDirty Heads Frontman Jared Watson Talks Weed, Colors, Addiction, And MoreWidespread Panic’s John “JoJo” Hermann Tells Studio Stories And MoreJason Crosby Talks Impromptu Performances With Prince And Bruce SpringsteenCol.

Representatives of the tourism sector of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County stayed in Slavonia

first_imgAs they point out from Vukovar-Srijem County, a positive example of cooperation between the two friendly counties is the exchange of mandarins, which has been going on for years, and since last year Vukovar-Srijem County has been donating apples to Dubrovnik-Neretva County. Director of the Tourist Board of Vukovar-Srijem County, Rujana Bušić, pointed out that guests do not have a large number of days to tour the whole of Slavonia, so a combination of programs was chosen that includes presentation and content, but also specific things that are important for travel agencies, and noted that this will be a very good invitation to start and inspiration for further research and intensification of collaboration. Director of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County Tourist Board, and Vladimir Bakic  He pointed out that there is a nice cooperation between “blue” and “green” Croatia, but there is always room for improvement and that representatives of the economy of all Slavonian counties should be more actively involved in attracting tourists to Slavonia. The Dubrovnik-Neretva and Vukovar-Srijem County Tourist Boards, in cooperation with the Dubrovnik-Neretva and Vukovar-Srijem Counties, organized a study trip to Slavonia for travel agencies from the Dubrovnik-Neretva County, with the aim of presenting the tourist facilities and capacities of Vukovar-Srijem County. Also, a working meeting was held on the topic: “Tourist facilities and offers of Vukovar-Srijem County”. “The initiative was for travel agencies of Dubrovnik-Neretva County to come to the easternmost Croatian county and see what it has to offer, and Slavonia should join their tourist programs so that tourists can come to Slavonia as well. pointed out the prefect of Vukovar-Srijem County, Božo Galić. Although it is a symbolic collaboration, it is certainly stimulating and useful that strives for commercialization and confirmation of entrepreneurial activities. “In a recent presentation of Vukovar-Srijem County during their visit to Dubrovnik-Neretva County, this initiative also emerged. We had the opportunity to see how the entrepreneurs of Vukovar-Srijem County are organized and what products they can offer to the hotel and catering industry of our county. By organizing tourist visits of both domestic and foreign tourists, and with the experience of our travel agencies, we can contribute to the development of tourism in this continental part of Croatia.”Bakic pointed out. The guests visited the sights in our county, from the Ilok City Museum, walls, Ilok cellars, Principovac, and in the Municipality of Nijemci through a boat ride and a visit to Sopot, as well as the memorial part of Vukovar and Vučedol to the sights of Vinkovci.last_img read more

Koeman hails ‘important’ win

first_img It ended a 387-minute wait for a goal at St Mary’s and gave Southampton’s top-four ambitions a timely shot in the arm, moving them to within a point of the Champions League places. “Finally we score and we win at home,” manager Koeman said, smiling. “I can’t say that we deserved the win today. Maybe after the first half, yes, but after the second half Crystal Palace did well. “They had some good chances, had a shot off the post, but football is strange. Sometimes you play much better than we did today. “I think it is all about the confidence, it is all about the confidence. “We have the most difficult way to play football because we like to play football, we like to play offensive football. “All the opponents are defending, like they did in the first half and in the second half they produced a bit more action to score. “Then you need the total confidence to break it open and we don’t have the confidence today. We struggled a little more than we like to but then it is all about a mental question for the players. It may not have been pretty but Ronald Koeman believes Southampton’s late win against Crystal Palace will prove to be one of the defining moments of their remarkable campaign. Press Association “But they keep the belief in the team, spirit in the team to try and score the goal and win the game. “With the support we had from our fans, finally we have the three points and that makes the situation more comfortable.” It was Southampton’s first home win in any competition since New Year’s Day and a result on par with, if not bigger, than that victory against Arsenal. “I think it can be very important,” Koeman said. “I think this win maybe is one of the key moments of the season. “We know we would like to fight for a high position in the table, but if you don’t win three games at home in a row, you don’t score (it makes it hard), “It is all about confidence, it is all about a mental question for the players. It is not easy to change that. If you win, it all helps.” Southampton now have a much-needed break before travelling to Chelsea on March 15, while Palace host QPR the day before. It is a match Alan Pardew’s men will approach with a feeling of injustice as the Eagles boss claims Martin Atkinson, refereeing his first match since the controversial 1-1 draw between Chelsea and Burnley, should have awarded them a penalty for a foul on Yannick Bolasie. “Obviously, the last game he was under a lot of pressure, but I think that was a penalty tonight,” Pardew said. “I just feel it was a penalty and when the centre-half has been as aggressive as Jose Fonte was tonight, he should give it. “But, you know, we’ve been harshly treated I think by the officials in the last few games and sometimes you get a run like that.” Pardew’s comments surprised those in the press conference and angered Southampton counterpart Koeman. “No, it is so easy if you lose a game to tell that kind of story about referees,” the Dutchman said. “I think the referee was not involved in the final result – we scored and they didn’t score and I know because I know that feeling. “I think it is too easy and I think too many people are always talking about referees. I don’t like that.” Having confounded the naysayers after a summer of upheaval, things began to tail off recently for Saints as they struggled to turn possession into goals. They toiled once again against Palace as a run of one win in five Barclays Premier League matches looked set to be extended, only for Sadio Mane to find the net and secure a late 1-0 win. last_img read more
