moe. Heats Up Northampton To Close Out Northeast Portion Of Winter Tour [Watch/Setlist]

first_imgLast night, moe. hit the Calvin Theatre to close out the Northeast segment of their winter tour. After smoking shows in Pennsylvania on Thursday and Vermont on Friday, the band was dialed in for last night’s performance in Northampton, MA.The first set kicked off with “Defrost,” which dropped directly into “Punchline.” “Prestige Worldwide,” a fairly new tune that was debuted this December at The Capitol Theater followed this set opener. To close at the first set, the band moved through “Four” into “Seat of My Pants” with a massive and masterful transition, before finishing off the set with “McBain.” While the band could have kept going and were tuned in with beautiful segues for the end of this set, Rob Derhak ultimately pointed to his watch at the end of “McBain,” and the band left for set break following this song.The second set was fiery and a nonstop assault from moe. The first half contained a massive “Pit” sandwich, with the band opening with “The Pit,” then moving into “Deep This Time,” and back into the “The Pit.” Keeping going on with this theme, moe. immediately dropped into “Recreational Chemistry” before finishing off the five-song “Pit” sandwich with the third and final “The Pit” of the evening. With another skillful transition, the band hit “Tubing The River Styx” before “Assfinger” and closing out with “Brent Black,” during which Vinnie Amico and Jim Loughlin shared Jim’s set up for a portion of the second set’s closing number. As a send-off for the evening, the band opened the encore with “Letter Home” before ending the performance and this leg of their winter tour with “New York City.”You can watch videos of “Seat Of My Pants” > “McBain” (in two parts) below via the band’s Facebook page, as well as fan-shot clip of “Prestige Worldwide” via YouTube user the ruff:“Seat of My Pants” > “McBain” “Prestige Worldwide”[Video courtesy of youtube user, the ruff]Setlist: moe. | Calvin Theatre | Northampton, MA | 4/2/2017 [courtesy of Marc O’Shea]Set 1: Defrost > Punchline, Prestige Worldwide, Four > Seat of My Pants > McBainSet 2: The Pit > Deep This Time > The Pit > Recreational Chemistry > The Pit > Tubing the River Styx > Ass Finger > Brent BlackEncore: Letter Home, NYCThe band will pick back up on February 17th at Nashville’s Marathon Music Works to kick off a southern run.

U.S. Cocaine, Heroin Seizures Up at Mexico Border

first_img U.S. border patrol agents seized 87 percent more cocaine and 108 percent more heroin in fiscal year 2010 that ended on October 1 compared to the year before, a report said 16 February. But marijuana seizures were down 16 percent, according to the report, commissioned by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized a total of 115 tons of cocaine over the period, compared with 61 tons in the previous year. The report attributed the increased seizures of cocaine and heroin to better detection and border patrol personnel reinforcements, as well as a “greater willingness by drug trafficking organizations to attempt to smuggle riskier and larger narcotics.” Some 20,000 U.S. border patrol agents are currently deployed on the U.S. southern border with Mexico — a record number, according to DHS. The US Coast Guard, meanwhile, seized 91.8 tons of cocaine, 1.5 percent less than in fiscal year 2009. It intercepted about 13.5 percent of sea-bound heroin trafficking — a little under its goal of 18 percent. For its part, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) saw 72 percent of its investigations result in prison time, a sentence, fine or drug confiscations.
