Pulling from their somewhat older catalog with a rendition of “Middle Mountain Towns”, the group then played Bill Monroe’s “Wheel Hoss”, made all the more complete with Paul Hoffman’s performance of the Macarena—a tune that the group gave a lot of love to recently during Strings & Sol.Greensky Bluegrass Cover Widespread Panic, Do “The Macarena” At Strings & Sol [Video]Shifting back to newer songs, next came a rendition of “Fixin’ To Ruin” featuring Guido Batista on woodblock before a cover of The Dillards’ “Reuben’s Train” and the band’s own “Cold Feet” off 2011’s Handguns. Joshua Davis’ “Last Winter In Copper Country” was up next before the group invited out The Infamous Stringdusters’ Chris Pandolfi and Andy Hall to help them close out the set for renditions of Greensky’s “I’d Probably Kill You”, Johnny Cash’s “Will The Circle Be Unbroken”, and The Dusters’ “No More To Leave You Behind”.“I’d Probably Kill You”[Video: Kyle Isaac]“Will The Circle Be Unbroken”[Video: Kyle Isaac]After the sit-in heavy close to set one, Greensky Bluegrass surprised fans once again, opening set two with their debut cover of Dawes’ “Quitter”. After “Living Over”, which featured references to their Johnny Cash tune, “Will The Circle Be Unbroken”, from set one, the group performed “Take Cover” off their newest album, Shouted, Written Down & Quoted, using the tune as a vehicle for a number of “Jeopardy!” theme teases.To close out set two, the band gave the crowd lots of love during a “The Four” sandwich housing Bob Marley’s “Could You Be Loved”. The number also contained quotes from Burt Bacharach’s “What The World Needs Now” and The Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love”, most likely referencing My Morning Jacket’s love-filled New Year’s Eve celebration just outside of Denver at 1st Bank Center, during which MMJ played the two songs back-to-back.“Could You Be Loved”[Video: Kyle Isaac]For the group’s encore, the band played “Frederico”, though changed the lyrics to reference dobro player Anders Beck, with lyrics like “Anders is the name” and “Who is Anders?”“Frederico”[Video: Kyle Isaac]You can check out the setlist from last night’s performance below.Setlist: Greensky Bluegrass | Ogden Theatre | Denver, CO | 1/12/2018Set One: Windshield (1), Middle Mountain Towns, Wheel Hoss (2), Fixin to Ruin (3), Rueben’s Train, Cold Feet, Last Winter in Copper Country (4), I’d Probably Kill You (5), Will the Circle be Unbroken (5), No More to Leave You Behind (5)Set Two: Quitter, Living Over (6), Take Cover (7)(8), Just to Lie > Eat my Dust, Working on a Building, Worried about the Weather > The Four > Could you be Love (9)(10) > The FourEncore: Frederico (11)(12)(1) – Harpua tease(2) – Macarena dance by Paul(3) – w/ Guido Batista (woodblock) x2(4) – Tarpology tease(5) – w/ Chris Pandolfi and Andy Hall(6) – Will the Circle be unbroken tease(7) – Jeopardy theme tease(8) – Contact tease(9) – what the World Needs Now quotes(10) – All you Need is love quotes(11) – Lyric change “Anders is the name…”(12) – Lyric change “Who is Anders”Check out the full gallery from photography Bill McAlaine below.center_img Greensky Bluegrass | Ogden Theatre | Denver, CO | 1/12/2018 | Photos by Bill McAlainelast_img read more

Gran Solaris hotel project at Cancun Hotel Zone temporarily suspended

first_imgCancun, Q.R. — After weeks of protests, the mayor of Cancun has agreed to suspend the hotel construction project at Playa Delfinis until all paperwork is reviewed.The municipal president of Benito Juárez, Remberto Estrada Barba, clarified that the suspension of the Gran Solaris Cancún project is the result of an appeal for review filed by two councilors and does not represent in any way, a sanction to the developer Villas Solaris S de RL de CV.The mayor pointed out that his decision to suspend the project also derives from the dissatisfaction of citizens regarding the hotel project that, if built, would consist of 450 rooms within a lot of 18,844.31 square meters located next to Playa Delfines at kilometer 19.5 of Boulevard Kukulcán.He specified that the constancy of land use and the construction license, both issued by the Municipal Department of Ecology and Urban Development (SMEyDU) of Benito Juárez, will be verified.“It is not a sanction. It is simply a review filed by two councilors of this Honorable Cabildo for a review of the land use and the construction license that was issued at the time. The review will be to thoroughly verify each of the processes that have been given, while emphasizing that we are listening to the request of many citizens,” he said.He said that his government is in favor of investment through real estate development, however, he stressed that it has to be sustainable and legal.“Effectively we continue arguing that we are in favor of construction, of development, as long as it is compatible with sustainable development and as long as it complies with all current regulations, existing in each of the laws,” he said.The government of Remberto Estrada insisted that there is no ecological damage by the project, and that they will monitor both the work and the project so that it in no way affects the integrity, access and services of Playa Delfines, which is and will continue to be public.He explained that “any investment project that complies with the legal framework and respects the environment, is welcome to Cancun for the benefits it generates in economic, employment and greater attraction of tourists.”He specified that in recent dates, “Some sectors have been expressing concerns and doubts about the Gran Solaris and that a lot of information has been spilled, some inaccurate, some partial and out of context, and a part totally alien to the truth.”City Council stated that to clear up doubts, they decided to request a suspension of the construction license in order to review the status of the project.In a statement, the city said “We believe it is appropriate for the authority to review again, and in detail, the municipal authorizations and their due compliance by the individual, as an exercise of transparency for the benefit of all.”He clarified that this suspension should not be taken as the closure of the project, since if it is confirmed that the project is in compliance with the law, the suspension will be lifted and the work will continue.City Council says the hotel is set for review on December 13.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more
