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.

Poll: Three in four adults played sports when they were younger, but only one in four still play

first_imgA new NPR/Robert Wood Johnson Foundation/Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health poll finds that although almost three in four adults played sports when they were younger (73%), only one in four (25%) continue to play sports as adults.But that decline in interest doesn’t stop parents from encouraging their children to make sports a part of their lives. In fact, almost nine in ten parents whose middle school or high school aged child plays sports (89%) say that their child benefits a great deal or quite a bit from participating in sports.And, while most adults no longer play sports themselves, the majority of parents (72%) whose child plays sports say it is very likely or somewhat likely that their child will continue participating in sports when he/she becomes an adult. One in four parents (26%) whose high school aged child plays sports also hope their child will become a professional athlete.When parents were asked about the benefits that their middle school or high school aged child gets from playing sports, more than eight in ten parents whose child plays sports say their child benefits a great deal or quite a bit in his/her physical health (88%) and helping him/her learn about discipline or dedication (81%).
