The Philadelphia-born jamtronica act agreed to play a dedicated fan’s setlist during the destination concert getaway, but under one condition—he had to get a tattoo of the setlist or artwork inspired by the setlist he wrote. Close to three years ago, we spoke to both this superfan and Biscuits’ bassist Marc Brownstein about this pact, and today, we’ve received an exciting follow-up about the status of the tattoo in question.In 2014, Brownstein laid out the simple terms of the deal, noting, “Last night was epic. The deal I made with the fan who wrote the set was this: He writes the set, we play the set to the best of our ability given time constraints etc., and he tattoos the setlist to his body.” Seems simple enough, however, the fan then weighed in, clarifying that he wouldn’t be getting the actual setlist tattooed on his body, rather he’d use the setlist as a guide to create “an actual detailed sketched tattoo.”Well, today, Live For Live Music received a long-awaited update on the status of his Biscuits setlist tattoo. While in 2014, he explained that he’d be getting a detailed sketched tattoo, in the end, he opted to get the straight setlist tattooed onto his upper thigh. In an email, he sent along a picture of his setlist tattoo and noted, “This isn’t newly done for the record. I never got to show many people that I was a man of my word, aside to Brownie and close friends.”You can check out the setlist that he wrote that the Disco Biscuits played at Dominican Holidaze on December 3rd, 2014, as well as a photo of his finished tattoo below.Setlist: The Disco Biscuits | Dominican Holidaze at Breathless Resort and Spa | Punta Cana, Dominican Republic | 12/3/2014last_img read more

Good news for renters as Gold Coast vacancy rate hits highest level since 2013

first_imgThe Gold Coast’s residential rental vacancy rate has hit 2.8 per cent.THE Gold Coast’s residential rental market is the healthiest it has been since 2013, creating more of an even playing field between tenants and landlords.The Real Estate Institute of Queensland’s (REIQ) latest vacancy rates report, released yesterday, showed a slight rise to 2.8 per cent for the Glitter Strip.The city’s vacancy rate has sat below 2.5 per cent since 2016 and hasn’t reached what was believed to be a “healthy” figure for six years.The Gold Coast notched the most significant change across the Queensland markets and has the same rate as Brisbane.REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella said the Gold Coast’s vacancy rates are healthy. Picture: Claudia Baxter.“Following a persistently tight rental market, the Gold Coast’s vacancy rates have jumped to 2.8 per cent, moving the region into the healthy range for the first time in five quarters,” REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella said.“The last time the Gold Coast’s rental market sat in the healthy range was in the December quarter of 2016, when it just scraped in at 2.5 per cent,” she said.The previous quarter saw a 1.7 per cent vacancy rate for the city, while it was as low as 1.1 per cent in the March 2018 quarter.MORE NEWS: Why one Coast suburb’s house price has been slashed in halfMORE NEWS: Estate’s sale price just short of record It was previously reported that vacancy rates had hit a decade-high figure of 4.8 per cent in the December quarter, however the data was skewed with a high percentage of university accommodation vacancies, which the REIQ said they incorrectly took into account.The reported figure has since been amended 1.6 per cent.“A rental vacancy rate between 2.5 per cent to 3.5 per cent is considered healthy, reflecting a market where supply meets demand,” Ms Mercorella said“The Gold Coast’s return to a healthy condition could be partly attributed to reduced employment in the area, following the near completion of numerous construction projects, multiple restaurant closures and job-cuts at the Casino.More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa10 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag1 day ago“This, combined with the usual increase in vacancy levels during the winter months when hospitality workers often move onto other locations, has contributed to this welcome change.”Renters and landlords are now on a more even playing field on the Gold Coast.The Gold Coast’s median rental price for a house is $500 per week and $450 for a unit, according to the REIQ.“Median rents for three-bedroom houses, two-bedroom units and three-bedroom townhouses have increased by around 2.2 per cent over the year from March 2018 to 2019,” the report said.REIQ Gold Coast zone chairman Andrew Henderson said the rate rise had created a balance between tenants and investors.“It’s good news for tenants where they have some choice but is still at a level where property owners can get themselves a good tenant in a relatively short period of time,” he said.“When it gets to that tight level there’s significant competition over properties.“Good supply and demand sets a fair market value for rental prices.”Knight Frank head of project marketing Queensland Chris Litfin said the figures could be a seasonal adjustment but were heading towards a perfectly supplied market.“Three per cent is the magic number, when the market is at 3 per cent it’s considered to be an equilibrium,” he said.Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:29Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:29 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD540p540p360p360p270p270pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Kenyan coach wary of Rwanda, Libya firepower

first_imgNairobi, Kenya | AFP | Kenya’s new coach Paul Put has warned his players to expect Rwanda and Libya to be at full strength when they meet in the group phase of the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup.In his first game since taking over from Stanley Okumbi last month, the Belgian-born Put’s experimental team face Rwanda in the tournament opener at the Bukhungu stadium in Kakamega on Sunday.“Rwanda have shown their quality having qualified for the 2018 African Nations Championships (CHAN) by beating Ethiopia in the play-offs.“They are expected to bring their top players, and Libya too will field their best team as they seek to use the tournament as a build-up for the CHAN finals in Morocco in January, which have also qualified to take part,” said Put.“The tournament will give me the opportunity to look at the local players. Our goal is the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, but it is important to have a good result. “We will have to learn by our own mistakes, and see how the team will perform. But the players want to prove themselves, and playing at home will be an extra motivation for them.”Kenya last won the Cecafa Cup in 2013 when Allan Wanga scored both goals in the 2-0 victory over Sudan in the final in Nairobi.Following Zimbabwe’s withdrawal on Wednesday, nine national teams, including cup holders Uganda will take part in the December 3-17 championships. The matches will be played in Kakamega in Western Kenya and the eastern town of Machakos.Zimbabwe, the reigning Southern Africa Cosafa champions, were expected to take part as a guest side, along with Libya.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Conte on Costa contract, Ake, Begovic, Eduardo and sleepness nights

first_imgChelsea boss Antonio Conte was asked about a number of issues at his press conference ahead of Sunday’s home game with Hull City. Here is some of what the Italian had to say.On Diego Costa“He had a training session on Tuesday with the rest of the team and he trained very well. He hasn’t [any] pain in his back – for this reason he’s available.“On Sunday and Monday, he trained with a fitness coach because it is important to prepare his body to have a good session on Tuesday.”On Costa’s future“I think the player wants to stay at Chelsea. He’s very happy to play with us – this idea [a move to China] is far from his mind.“He’s happy to stay here, to play with us. This is the most important thing for us. I don’t see any problem.”On reports of a bust-up with CostaEmbed from Getty Images“After the game against Leicester, I told you the truth [that Costa was injured].“I heard a lot of speculation about Diego, but now the most important thing is that he trained with us this week, he hasn’t any pain in his back, and is available to come back in our squad against Hull City.“Diego is an important player for us. When he stays in a good form, he’s always played. Will he start against Hull? We’ll see on Sunday. I do not want to give an advantage to our opponent.”On whether Costa should get a new contract“I think now it’s better to be concentrated on the present, not the future. It’s important to have these [next] four months in a very strong way, and then we’ll see.“It’s important now to be focused on the present and not to see too far, in my opinion.“Diego is a good player, he is a good person and now he’s only focused on Chelsea and to play with us and to continue to help us.“He missed only one game but now he’s ready to come back with us. I’m sure about his commitment, his will to fight with this team to the end and to try to win the title.”On an offer from Bournemouth for Asmir Begovic“Asmir is an important player for me, on and off the pitch. He knows this.“There is this offer – me and the club, we are evaluating this offer. But it’s important to find the right solution for Asmir, for the club, for me.”On Costa’s possible return to the team“At the moment, for me to make a decision is not easy, because I have four or five players [who are] very strong in that position – I have Pedro, Willian, [Eden] Hazard, Costa and also Ruben [Loftus-Cheek].“It’s not easy because they are in good form, and they give me different options. For sure, I sleep some hours less to make the best decision but it is my task to pick the best players game-by-game.“I have to pick three players [up front] and if someone stays out it’s not for punishment, or for other stories. I like to make choices game-by-game, and also to consider the opponent.”On Nathan Ake“I evaluated his situation, I evaluated our situation and I think it’s a good reinforcement for us because Ake is a player that can play in different positions.“I think in this last two years he has played and improved a lot, and now he’s ready to play with this team, to stay with us and to help us.“This is the second week that he’s working with us – now he’s starting to go into our idea of football. I’m pleased to have him.”On whether Eduardo could replace Asmir Begovic“Eduardo is a great buy for us. He arrived as a third goalkeeper, that position is very clear in my mind.“I’m very happy for him because he is working very well, and he is helping me, helping Thibaut [Courtois] and Asmir a lot and also he is helping [goalkeeper coaches] Gianluca Spinelli and Hilario in their work. For me, he is doing very well.”On Fifa technical director’s Marco Van Basten’s proposed rule changesEmbed from Getty Images“I don’t like this because I think that if you start to change a lot of rules, it’s not good. With these [current] rules, football is very attractive. I don’t like wanting to try to take examples of the other sports. Football is football, other sports are other sports.”On Hull“You have to face this game with great concentration and focus on our target because if you think that these games are easy, you can make a great mistake and you can pay for this mistake at the end of the season.“For me, Hull City are a good team – in the last game they won against Bournemouth. They changed the coach and usually when you change the coach you have a great reaction from the players – we must pay great attention.”   Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!

Banyana share spoils with Zimbabwe

first_img15 April 2014South Africa’s women’s football team, Banyana Banyana, showed plenty of character to come from behind to draw 2-2 with Zimbabwe in an entertaining friendly international at the Dobsonville Stadium in Soweto on Saturday afternoon.Playing under new coach Vera Pauw, South Africa fell 0-2 behind but fought their way back before a boisterous crowd to claim a deserved share of the spoils.It was the hosts that started with lots of running, but were somehow undone by the long balls, which the Zimbabwe backline easily dealt with.PenaltyFrom their very first counter-attack, Zimbabwe’s Rutendo Makore got the better of Letago Madiba in a one-on-one situation. The robust Madiba was forced into bringing down Makore, leaving referee Maria Kolokotoane with little choice but to award a penalty, which Makore dispatched with ease in the seventh minute.Sensing Banyana Banyana’s problems dealing with long balls, Zimbabwe pumped high balls in the penalty area. From one of those attacks, Marjory Nyaumwe outpaced the static home team’s defence and blasted the ball past Roxanne Barker no chance to make it 2-0.Zimbabwe could have been 3-0 ahead, but Makore’s audacious effort moments later hit the crossbar.Out of their shellBanyana Banyana then came out of their shell and after good work between Refiloe Jane and Silindile Ngubane the latter’s shot hit the bar as the South Africans started to threaten the visitors.At last, after incessant pressure, a goal came on the stroke of half-time when Ngubane’s shot gave Dzingirai no chance, making it 2-1 to the visitors at the break.In the second half, South Africa pinned Zimbabwe pinned in their own half, but the visitors’ back four, well marshalled by Melody Musasa, stood firm.Robyn Moodaly could have equalised for Banyana Banyana but her long range effort was brilliantly parried behind for a corner by Chido Dzingirai as Zimbabwe hung on for dear life.CampedPauw’s charges then camped into the visitors’ area, but brave goalkeeping by Dzingirai frustrated the home side, with Jane seeing her effort skim the crossbar as Banyana Banyana upped the ante.Former captain Amanda Dlamini, who was introduced as a late substitute, had a point blank header saved by Dzingirai as Zimbabweans clung onto their lead and South African pushed hard for an equaliser.EqualiserThe vibrant crowd raised the tempo, cheering on the home as Banyana Banyana chased the elusive goal and the hard-running Dlamini was rewarded as South Africa made it 2-2 after Zimbabwe finally cracked under pressure.It was a well-deserved draw for Pauw’s team, which played with more purpose and were by far the better side in the second half.Zimbabwe could have stolen a win late in the match, but Barker produced a one- handed save from Felistas Muzongondi after the goalkeeper had been left exposed by her defence.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more
