The Magic Beans Bring the Heat for their Hometown Celebration [Photos/Recap]

first_imgThe Magic Beans came out of the gates hot last night for their triumphant return to the historic Fox Theatre in Boulder, Colorado. The Boulder locals had the honor of hosting an unforgettable Saturday night throwdown alongside many incredible acts this month in celebration of the Fox Theatre’s 25th anniversary. For The Magic Beans, The Fox feels like home, and that energy and vibe resonated throughout the crowd over the course of the evening.The groovy Portland-based trio, Yak Attack, started the night off right, entertaining the crowd with synthy-dance beats and preparing to welcome the main event of the evening. The Magic Beans developed a connection with Yak Attack while out on tour, and have since developed an admiration for the trio, recently inviting them to play at the Bean’s festival, Beanstalk Music and Arts Festival this upcoming June.As the Magic Beans walked on stage at 10:15 sharp, the entire crowd erupted, fueling a fire that was blazing on all night long. Former Magic Beans drummer Will Trask (Great American Taxi, The Runnikine) accompanied the band on percussion the entirety of the evening. As the boys discussed prior to the show, they wanted to bring the FUNK! An extended version of a Magic Bean’s favorite, “Lazer Lady,” kicked off the evening in style, and the band quickly found their sound and started bringing the jams. The night was full of both new and old material, highlighted by an enormous “Kid Rocket,” “Five Points,” and “Lost and Found” to name a few.With an entire half-hour to utilize for encore, the Beans did what they do best; they conquered. Original tune “Casino Cabaret” highlighted the incredible talent that the Beans possess across the board. Bassist Chris Duffy threw down a monstrous, crunchy solo, before the band threw a curveball out of left field. The band decided that a cover of Ween’s “Monique the Freak” would be the best note to end the show on, and a sentiment that was clearly shared by the crowd. Keyboardist Casey Russell assisted on vocals with a Talk-box effect, trading licks back and forth with guitarist Scott Hachey until 1:30 on the dot. To say the boys are back in town would be an understatement! You can check out the setlist and photos from last night below, courtesy of Sam Berenson.The Magic Beans head out on a coast-to-coast tour starting at the end of the month, moving their way from Colorado, across the Midwest to the East Coast, and then head out to California and up the coast next month. Make sure to see The Magic Beans in a city near you, and if you’ve been contemplating attending Beanstalk Music and Arts Festival, you should definitely pull the trigger. 2017 is a year not to be missed, and if Saturday night was any indication of the fun to come in the Colorado mountains this June, start packing up your camping gear and get ready for an unforgettable weekend!Setlist: The Magic Beans | Fox Theatre | Boulder, CO | 3/18/2017Set 1: Lazer Lady, Alway Coo, Kid Rocket, As You Like It> Nothing from Nothing> Dr. BubblemanSet 2: Five Points>Mind Over Matter>Dirty Wook, Common Mind, Lost and FoundEncore: Casino Cabaret, Monique the Freak (Ween cover) Load remaining imageslast_img read more

SUPERSTAR CALIFORNIA CHROME SCHEDULED TO RUN IN SANTA ANITA’S GRADE I AWESOME AGAIN STAKES OCT. 1; ‘CHROME’ IN LINE FOR $1 MILLION BONUS IF HE WINS AWESOME AGAIN & BREEDERS’ CUP CLASSIC ON NOV. 5

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Sept. 14, 2016)–Superstar California Chrome, who at age five is North America’s all-time leading money earner, is scheduled to run in the Grade I, $300,000 Awesome Again Stakes on Saturday, Oct. 1 at Santa Anita, according to his trainer, Art Sherman. Fresh off victory in the Grade I Pacific Classic Aug. 20, the California-bred son of Lucky Pulpit has record earnings of $13,252,650 and is line for a $1 million bonus if he wins both the mile and one eighth Awesome Again and the mile and a quarter $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita on Nov. 5.“He’s come out of the Pacific Classic in great shape,” said Sherman from his Los Alamitos base. “We’ll bring him up to Santa Anita about a week before the race and let him get re-acclimated there. We did that earlier this year and it worked out real well. The million dollar bonus is very nice, but if he wasn’t ready, we wouldn’t be running. The Breeders’ Cup Classic is our major objective, no question, but he’s doing great and we expect him to run big in the Awesome Again.”Ridden in his last 17 starts by Victor Espinoza, California Chrome has won four out of seven starts at The Great Race Place–all of them stakes.“We are elated at the prospect of California Chrome running on our Breeders’ Cup Preview Day here at Santa Anita on Oct. 1,” said Joe Morris, Senior Vice President, West Coast Operations for The Stronach Group. “At this point, he has truly become a superstar in our game and we want to thank his owners, Perry Martin and Taylor Made Farm, as well as Art Sherman, for making the commitment to run here on Oct 1. This is going to be huge for our fans and for our sport.”A winner of the 2014 Santa Anita Derby, Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, “Chrome” is now riding a five-game winning streak, which began with victory in Santa Anita’s Grade II San Pasqual Stakes on Jan. 9. A subsequent winner of two stakes in Dubai, including the Dubai World Cup on March 26, California Chrome was then freshened at Taylor Made Farm in Kentucky prior to winning the Grade II San Diego Handicap on July 23.The Awesome Again is one of five Breeders’ Cup “Win and You’re In” qualifying prep stakes on Oct. 1. Santa Anita will be hosting the two-day Breeders’ Cup for a record ninth time on Nov. 4 & 5.

CHANDELIER STAKES QUOTES – SATURDAY OCTOBER 1, 2016

first_imgFLAVIEN PRAT, WITH HONORS, SECOND: “She ran great. I wish I was on the outside but she ran great. First time on with her. She was really brave to come back at the end and I felt that she was kind of tired but she just tried hard and did everything right.” TRAINER QUOTES KEITH DESORMEAUX, WITH HONORS, SECOND: “I think it was a complete difference in style here. I concentrated on freshening this horse after her win at Del Mar (Sept. 5 one mile Del Mar Juvenile Fillies Turf Stakes), I didn’t drill her in the mornings. We came up a bit short today, but it puts her in a position to run a big race on Breeders’ Cup day and that’s the goal.“She is going to run on dirt in the Breeders’ Cup unless I completely get overruled by the owners, the jockey, and the conglomerate that runs the show. She’s definitely going to run on dirt.“If you watch the race again, you can see that she wasn’t straining to be up there (on the lead.) For her to set that kind of pace, and to do it under control is a beautiful thing to see and, with a race like that, we don’t have to worry.” RAFAEL BEJARANO, NOTED AND QUOTED, WINNER: “I have to give Bob (Baffert) a lot of credit for this. I have ridden both (of Baffert’s fillies entered in the Chandelier, (the other American Cleopatra) and I started off wanting to ride American Cleopatra because I thought (with her pedigree) she might be the better filly but I don’t think she really wants to go two turns. Baffert told me that he thought I might want to stay on Noted and Quoted because she was going to be prepared to run the mile and a sixteenth. And, he was right. American Cleopatra was right next to me but Stewart (Elliott, on American Cleopatra) didn’t have enough horse and mine was the better horse today.” JOCKEY QUOTES BOB BAFFERT, NOTED AND QUOTED, WINNER: “When they turned for home, I thought, ‘That’s a good filly (With Honors) that ran second.’ I have a lot of respect for her. (Noted and Quoted) is a very slight filly. I don’t have to do a lot with her, but the fact that she’s already proved she can go two turns, that’s what we were trying to find out with her. I’m pretty proud of her effort, because she ran against a really great filly.” NOTES: The winning owner is Peter Fluor of Houston who races as Speedway Stable, LLC..-30-last_img read more
