It’s certainly a rare occasion for Joe Russo and Marco Benevento to reunite as a duo. While the Joe Russo’s Almost Dead bandmates have mostly dedicated their time to the Grateful Dead-inspired band, as Benevento tours his own band throughout the year, the drummer and keyboardist reunited for their fourth show this year after a six year hiatus on Friday night. Suwannee Hulaween served as the perfect setting for this reunion, even bringing former collaborator Mike Gordon to the stage for a set-closing “Scratchitti”.The Benevento Russo Duo made an unexpected come-back when they played a surprise show at a small club in Brooklyn, NY at the Threes Brewing in 2016. Having not played since 2010, the show marked the first of four that would take place in the year since. While they were once a touring machine, bringing Mike Gordon along for the ride in 2005 and then Trey Anastasio in 2006, the Duo always remained the key ingredient of the special sauce.During their performance at Suwannee Hulaween, the Benevento Russo Duo welcomed the Phish bassist for an appropriate “Scratchitti”–an original that’s been in rotation since the band’s inception in 2004, and the go-to for Mike Gordon sit-ins. As JamBase notes, the trio hadn’t shared the stage under this moniker since 2008, and with Mike Gordon’s band in 2009–though the end of this video indicates that it’s been eleven years since they’d played that together. All in all, the surprise sit-in was a huge success for all those in attendance.Check out a full video of the Benevento Russo Duo and Mike Gordon performing “Scratchitti” below:
The home at 2/35 Victoria St, Kelvin Grove, is built with sustainable living in mind.The cottage at 2/35 Victoria St, Kelvin Grove was built over a number of years by an environmental engineer and thoughtfully designed to make the most of the natural elements, according to Harcourts Solutions licensed real estate agent Bridget Gabites.“The owner collected the timber, and it’s all been designed to make sure it stays cool in summer and warm in the winter by keeping windows away from the western side,” Ms Gabites said.“There are solar panels that almost provides all the electricity for the home and there is a water tank outside.” The cottage was designed to make the most of a small block.Ms Gabites said blocks in Kelvin Grove were traditionally small and the vendor had maximised the space available through the minimalist style of the house. The home is open-plan living.The Queenslander had an architecturally designed renovation and extension which was completed about a decade ago, so while the front of the home remains in traditional fashion, the rest of the residence is ultra-modern. The home was architecturally designed by the owner’s son in 1969.The retro-chic home is back in style and has garnered the attention of buyers, many of whom want to preserve the property.“The majority have been looking to maintain the style and have come just for the architecture, while the others have come for the area,” Mr Morgan said.The home will go to auction on July 7, midday.

Cristiano Ronaldo was named UEFA Player of the Season for 2016-2017 yesterday after a campaign that saw the Portuguese superstar help Real Madrid to the La Liga and Champions League double.It was the third time that Ronaldo had won the award which was presented on the sidelines of the Champions League group stage draw.His great rival Lionel Messi has won the prize on two occasions and could pave the way for him to capture a fifth Ballon d’Or title. “There are the same goals every year, to meet the same challenges, win everything if possible, qualify for the World Cup with my national team,” said Ronaldo.“This trophy will give me the motivation to keep working hard, never to give up. I am blessed and delighted to be with Real Madrid.”Ronaldo won the UEFA award in 2013-2014 and 2015-2016 and in the Champions League last season, where Real defeated Juventus 4-1 in the final, he finished as top scorer with 12 goals.Juventus goalkeeper and captain Gianluigi Buffon was second in the voting ahead of Messi.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
