Watch The Series Premiere of Cameron Crowe’s New Live Music Centered Show ‘Roadies’

first_imgRoadies, a new Showtime comedy following the road crew of a fictional major touring band, is set to officially premiere on Showtime on Sunday, June 26th. The series, created by music industry veteran Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous), puts the hard-working individual members of the often-overlooked crew in the spotlight by providing an insider’s look at the lives of some roadies for the Staton-House Band. Although they don’t have the prolific lives and public scandals of the rockers who take the stage each night, there is still enough recklessness and romance to go around with the road crew. The roadies persevere through the issues they face in their personal lives to make sure the show goes on as planned every night.Ahead of the official Showtime release on Sunday, the network has allowed fans on YouTube and the Showtime app to watch the series premiere early. Check out the full episode below:The show’s premiere episode is sure to pique the interest of any music fan. The dialogue is well-written and clever, and the characters are strange and lovable–like the conspiracy-nut bass tech from New Jersey who speaks in a fake British accent, the wise, road-worn tour bus driver who spouts advice like “It’s my opinion that in like you need two things to survive: oxygen and family. Everything else is dessert” (played with emotion by Luis Guzman), the grizzled felon head roadie (the hilarious Ron White) who shouts things like “when you look at me, you’re lookin’ at Rock n’ Roll in America!”, the spike-clad rocker kid who just got fired from Pearl Jam‘s crew but still would “take a bullet for McCready, ‘cus those are my guys!”, the crazy stalker groupie (“You live for what you live for. I live for this band.”), and many more. It’s a show about quite literally living for live music, and the ways people devote themselves to the music in order to feel close to it.Needless to say, we’ll be setting our DVRs for this one. Check out new episodes every Sunday night on Showtime.last_img read more

Powered by Firework Pep Guardiola was not able to win any trophy in his first season at Manchester City. He was criticized badly after the end of the season.

Is Woewiyu Out of Grand Bassa Senatorial Race?

first_imgThe arrest and subsequent detention of Thomas Jucontee Woewiyu by the U.S. Government is pointing to a hope dash as his political interest back home now seems to have a bleak future.Tom Woewiyu had announced that he would contest the upcoming mid-term October Senatorial election for Grand Bassa County against the wishes and aspirations of the incumbent, Gbehzongar Finely, who currently serves as the Senate Pro-Tempore of the 53rd National Legislature.Mr. Woewiyu, upon his return from the U.S. last year to Liberia, unveiled his political intention where he had wanted to contest for the senatorial seat for Grand Bassa County.The former Minister of Defense of one of Liberia’s notorious rebel factions, National Patriotic Front of Liberia (NPFL), appeared before a 3-federal judge panel with one judge leading the charge. Mr. Woewiyu was brought into the court, sandwiched by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, who arrested him.Upon his arrest last week, Thomas Jucontee Weoewiyu was identified as the former Liberian Minister of National Defense and a spokesman of the erstwhile rebel NPFL.If he is found guilty, he faces a US$4 million fine and a 110-year imprisonment sentence.In line with his arrest order, Tom has been described a ‘flight risk,’ meaning he would escape to Liberia if his bail is filed. He was subsequently denied bill.Based on this, the U.S. denied him (Woewiyu) bail.  He has already been charged with ‘perjury,’ lying on his citizenship application by failing to disclose his alleged affiliation with a “violent political group in Liberia,” during the height of the country’s civil crisis, which lasted over a decade. Woewiyu served as Defense Minister in Charles Taylor’s former rebel National Patriotic Reconstruction Assembly Government (NPRAG), which then controlled “greater Libria.” Upon his arrest, his immigration lawyer, Raymond Basso, said his client amended his citizenship application to include his participation in the Taylor regime.  But Linwood C. Wright, Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Philadelphia, said Judge Judith Faith Angell denied bail, “because she believed Woewiyu might try to leave (runaway) from the U.S. should he be bailed.“There was a detention hearing and Woewiyu was ordered detained by a U.S. Magistrate.  The magistrate found that he (Woewiyu) was a ‘flight risk,’ and so she ordered him detained pending his trial,” Wright said.Raymond Basso, Woewiyu’s immigration lawyer, told VOA last week the case against his client was purely an immigration matter, and that it was a “misconception” (mistaken belief) to suggest that he was being charged with war crimes.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more



first_imgHaving extended their unbeaten league run to twelve games on Friday night last, Finn Harps go into Friday’s Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup tie against Longford Town in confident mood.Last season Harps reached their first semi-final in the competition in fifteen years but didn’t face a team from a Division above them until the last four meeting with St. Patrick’s Athletic at Richmond Park.And in Longford – who were First Division Champions last season – Harps face a step up from any side that Ollie Horgan’s men have faced in the league this season. “Longford have done well this season in the top division,” said Harps boss Horgan ahead of Friday’s game at the City Calling Stadium.“Tony Cousins has a great mix of youth with the likes of Jamie Mulhall, Kaleem Simon and Ben Mohammed added to the class and experience of Stephen Rice, Mark Salmon, Pat Sullivan and Kevin O Connor. Sullivan and Shaw are a handful for the top teams, let alone us,” he warned.“We played Longford four times last year and failed to score in any of those games,” continued Horgan, stressing the difficulty that Friday’s opponents pose. “They have improved again from that so it will be very difficult to go there and get anything out of game, let alone score.”Last Friday night, Harps created a little bit of history at Finn Park as they started a league campaign still unbeaten after twelve games for the first time. “It’s a good start but that’s all it is,” said Horgan. “We need to improve as other teams have and will. UCD, for example, are a better team now than when we played them last so we need to try and improve also.To keep their unbeaten run going, Harps had to come from behind twice in the game to claim a share of the spoils.“UCD outplayed us for large periods of the game and had the majority of possession. Their movement in the middle of the field was excellent so a draw was certainly a good result for us,” said Horgan of the 2-2 draw.“Both UCD goals looked like winning goals at the time but we showed good character to get something out of the game especially after Robbie Benson’s goal with little time left.”Looking ahead to Friday, this is the fourth time the two clubs have been paired together in the Cup with Harps progressing on the first two occasions and Longford last time out. The first meeting was in 1995/96 when Harps won on a 5-2 scoreline at Finn Park. The clubs were drawn together again in 1999/2000 when it took a replay for Harps to progress – the initial tie saw the teams share four goals in Longford before Harps won 7-1 in the replay at Finn Park. The most recent meeting was four years ago when Longford progressed on a 1-0 scoreline in a Finn Park replay after the club had played out a scoreless draw in the midlands. Packie Mailey was able to take his place on the bench for last Friday’s game against UCD and is available to make his first appearance of the season against Longford.

ICC World Twenty20: Kamran helps Pak beat India by 5 wickets

first_imgA scintillating Kamran Akmal (92 off 50 balls) on Monday helped Pakistan beat India by five wickets in their ICC World Twenty20 warm-up game in Colombo. Shoaib Malik (37* off 18 balls) gave him company.  Pakistan, who were 91/5 in 11.5 overs, were looking down the barrel with the fall of Umar Akmal (c & b Ashwin 2), even as Kamran Akmal (36*) was going strong. At 84/4 in 10.2 overs Pakistan were under pressure chasing 186, having lost Mohammad Hafeez (c Sharma b Ashwin 38) and Shahid Afridi (c Khan b Ashwin 0). Kamran (34*) and Umar Akmal were at the crease.    Mohammad Hafeez (31) Kamran Akmal (29) had earlier torn apart the Indian bowling as Pakistan (73/2 in 8 overs) scored almost nine runs an over. Pakistan, who lost two quick wickets of Imran Nazir (off Ashwin) and Nasir Jamshed (run out), were at 41/2 in 5.2 overs.  Earlier, Pakistan opened their innings on a brisk note scoring 29 runs in just three overs, with Imran Nazir and Mohammad Hafeez holding fort.Ravichandran Ashwin and Zaheer Khan were at the receiving end of the Pakistan openers blasting them away.  Two brilliant half-centuries by batting sensation Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma powered India to 185/3 against arch-rival Pakistan in their second T20 warm-up game ahead of the ICC World Twenty20 in Colombo on Monday.Kohli slammed seven fours in his 75-run knock, while Sharma’s 56 was laced with six bondaries and two sixers. Kohli and Sharma are positive signs for India while Pakistan’s lack of discipline in bowling should worry them. Pakistan bowler Saeed Ajmal took two wickets and Umar Gul claimed one.Earlier, India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat.Teams:India: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Zaheer Khan, Laxmipathy Balaji, Irfan Pathan, Ravichandran Ashwin.Pakistan: Mohammad Hafeez (capt), Shahid Afridi, Imran Nazir, Umar Akmal, Kamran Akmal, Shoaib Malik, Nasir Jamshed, Umar Gul, Saeed Ajmal, Sohail Tanvir, Mohammad Sami.advertisementlast_img read more
