The best advertisement is winning and no one but the Cosmos are doing enough of that. Period.
I would add few details to the Minnesota United attendance. The last two games have been hampered by cool, soggy weather and the bizarre decision to have one of the games in the middle of Saturday afternoon. We've got another mid afternoon game coming up and likely some more less fan-friendly weather on the way. Oh, an the Cosmos have basically already wrapped up the fall season, so I guess I expect the attendance to lag the rest of the year.
It might be interesting to compare the last game or two of the spring season vs the first game or two of the fall season for each team as well.
Ha! Hilarious comment, and thanks for it. I hear that Canada actually has a government, so perhaps I will head north...
Check out this awesome EPK video for Blind Boys of Alabama feat. Justin Vernon
Why don't you go back to Canada you commie!
"Official estimates say North Carolina has enough gas to power the state for about five years.. " This is only IF they did Not intend to export asap to China & highest bidders . It is Greed before Need leading this . IF $$ is the real objective here vs Health ,then consider NC $$ makers , Tourism and AG !
She screwed up or was it being afraid of Ted Cuz and his hang man she makes 3300 a week and her husband a doctor and she needs the money? Talk about greed it starts with our congress then go to their greedy backer in the corp world. It comes to a point to where you just have to do what you know is right for the people she just don't care. The shut down was all plan. Anyone who think it wasn't is only fooling them self. The part where republican saying they are looking out for the America people on a unfair law thou ACA what people less then 39 percent cause that what want Obamacare repeal. So 60 percent of the America people has to suffer for a handful that don't really know what ACA is or even how it going to work because the taken the propaganda put out by the tea party and conservatives to heart instead of researching it them self. This is all back by two Nazi brothers who trying to destroy our government because their Nazi dad couldn't get the job done in WWII. The Koch brothers has set out to destroyed this nation and the tea party is their weapon.
funny how you assume her no vote is simply because she doesn't want you to have insurance. That's moronic conclusion to reach. the handout train just keeps on rolling.
My question...what kind of cheese do I have to use? Is any queso fresco sufficient? How about Mozz...asked the gringo?
Also, what's the name/recipe of the tomatoe dipping thing? Does it have to be spicy?
Major props to the Independent for their World of Bluegrass coverage. These videos are fantastic and capture the spirit of the event. Please continue this type of video coverage for music events.
Wrong, Kontras is from Chicago, but based out of Hickory, NC. So technically it's Hickory, NC's Kontras Quartet. Otherwise, great write up.
I came in from Winston-Salem on Saturday for this. On the street I heard nothing but praise for the event. A couple of folks told me how big a deal this was for the city of Raleigh. This was the first exposure that a lot of people have ever had to Bluegrass outside of an Andy Griffith rerun. The IBMA crowd was impressed with yhe hospitality shown as well as the turnout. I think this was an incredible sucess for Bluegrass, for Raleigh, and for NC. Can't wait until next year.
Thanks for the careful reading and the comment, Evan. This has been corrected.
Wyatt Rice is Tony's younger brother, not his son......please correct this....thank you.
Bluegrass Musician and life long Tony Rice fan.
Terrible sound on the radio(XM) except for Del McCoury.Sound man couln't keep up with performers.Didn't hear a drum set,but may have been one.If not,ALLRIGHT!!!!! Rice had tears in my eyes not only for the effort,but the content.One man who has never forgotten where he came from.

Ms. Jimmy Carter still going strong and sounding good. Alright Blind Boys of Alabama.
Your comment seems like a bit of a potshot, to be frank. It's hard to be aware of unknown artists showing in unknown locations. If you know of some exhibition, artist, or visual phenomenon that you think needs writing and reading about, why not immediately send me an enthusiastic note about it instead of posting snarky comments on a review?
I write about the arts because I get ripped from engagement with work on its own terms. Like, for instance, the unknown high school artists I wrote about in this piece in June about the Creative Mentorship Program that the Durham Art Guild and Student U put together: http://www.indyweek.com/indyweek/durham-ar…
Technological changeovers may not be immediately evident in this sentence, which could have just as easily been hand-set verbatim in lead type, but then it wouldn’t be the same sentence, would it? Messages don’t mean independently from their media.
I see what you mean!
Kind of like how this exhibition would have received zero coverage or consideration by you if it had been presented by an unknown high-schooler in an unknown, but otherwise identical space, but because it was done by a famous art professional and is in a gallery, you give it 1,000 words!
> Sure, be reasonable. But if that’s all you are, “the other side will just roll right over you.”
Yes, and this principle was enunciated long ago by Jerome K. Jerome:
"In this world it is necessary to adopt the principle pursued by the plaintiff in an action for damages, and to demand ten times more than you are ready to accept. If you can feel satisfied with a hundred, begin by insisting on a thousand; if you start by suggesting a hundred you will only get ten."
