There’s no denying that the Gorge Amphitheatre is a magical venue, as the George, WA locale’s natural beauty was only accentuated by the smooth tones of the Dave Matthews Band last night. The DMB began a three night run at the storied grounds as part of an annual tradition that dates back to 2006. The band has hit the Gorge every year since 1996, and, with excitement at an all time high, the band delivered a great opening night show after opening sets from The Lone Bellow and Lake Street Dive.DMB opened with “The Best Of What’s Around” for the first time since 2013, and the hits kept on coming. “Big Eyed Fish” segued into “Satellite,” before tunes like “Stay or Leave,” “Seven” and the newer song “Bob Law” kept the party going. The band also had a special guest join them, as Carlos Malta sat in for three songs during the main set: “What Would You Say,” “Lover Lay Down,” and “Recently.”The band closed out their show with a great two-song encore that featured “Oh” and the only cover of the night, Bob Dylan’s “All Along The Watchtower.” Check out the full setlist.fm setlist, posted below.

“I walk up the stairs and they fall out, I don’t have a big income to begin with. Then, all my glass stuff is all over, so I have to lean up, and I’m out until the next pay day,” said Jane Carley, a resident of Binghamton. JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) — After New York State moved to ban single-use plastics by March 1, Wegmans is getting ahead by getting rid of plastic bags, and making the switch to reusable and paper bags. For some customers, a sturdy reusable bag will be a nice change to thin, flimsy, single-use bags. “We know that plastic is ending up in the ocean, and we know that it’s killing animals in the sea. We know that it’s not going away any time soon, but we don’t need to make it worse,” said Ellis. Reusable bags at Wegmans will now cost 99 cents, but if you forget your bag at home, they will also have paper bags for five cents each. For shoppers, making the change hasn’t been too hard. While there will be associated costs with the change, customers say it’s worth getting rid of the plastic to help the environment. “You may as well buy it once, keep using it, you can use it for years,” said KC Ellis, a local resident and longtime user of reusable bags. Proceeds from purchasing paper bags will benefit the Food Bank of the Southern Tier.
