Dave Matthews Band Welcomes Carlos Malta For Exciting Gorge Opener [Setlist]

first_imgThere’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.

NOONAN WASHING HIS HANDS AS BANKS FORCE PEOPLE FROM HOMES – TD

first_imgSinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Pearse Doherty TD has said Minister Michael Noonan is ‘washing his hands’ of the banks’ policy of legal actions against homeowners. Deputy Doherty was speaking after challenging Minister Noonan in the Dáil today.He said: “I am bitterly disappointed that Minister Noonan has expressed his satisfaction that the banks are meeting the Central Banks’ resolution targets. When I put it to him that the banks are only meeting those targets through wholesale legal actions he did not change his tune. “Today in the Committee Ulster Bank defended its use of legal proceedings in over 4,000 cases which make up almost half of their proposals under the targets set by Minister Noonan and the Central Bank. They know they can get away with this because of Minister Noonan’s Pontius Pilate attitude. I expect the three other main banks will tell the same tale tomorrow and Thursday.“The latest data from the banks shows that six years into this crisis the banks have only made a sustainable offer to one third of mortgage holders in distress when legal threats are excluded.“Minister Noonan has stated on numerous occasions that he does not believe that legal letters constitute a sustainable solution. He has said he has communicated this assertion to the banks yet he is hiding behind the Central Bank who are accepting the banks’ figures including legal letters and removal of people from their home as sustainable solutions.“It is not good enough the Minister to hide behind the Central Bank in the midst of a mortgage arrears crisis. Ministers should lead and not hide behind the Central Bank or civil servants.” All Figures refer to Principal Dwelling Houses:No   in ArrearsProposals%   Total ProposalsLegal   solutionsAs   a % of total proposalsAssisted   /Voluntary SalesAs   a % of Total ProposalsLong   Term ProposalsAs   a % of proposalsAIB24,99014,45557.8%6,42044%1,85512.8%6,18042.75%Ulster   Bank14,2319,55167.1%4,33245.2%––5,22854.7%PTSB22,10913,38060.552,30217.2%1,3229.8%9,75672.9%Bank   Of Ireland11,0547,42067.1%3,47846.8%741*10%*3,94253%Total72,38444,80661.8%16,53236.8%3,177**7%25,10656%***   BOI combine Mortgage to Rent and Assisted/Voluntary Sale so it is can’t be counted as either legal or Long Term** excluding BOI AVS*** as a % of total arrears long term solution = 34%NOONAN WASHING HIS HANDS AS BANKS FORCE PEOPLE FROM HOMES – TD was last modified: April 8th, 2014 by John2Share this: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 Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:bankslegal actionsMichael NoonanPearse Doherty TDlast_img
