Saturday Matinee – Elise Trouw, Lake Street Dive, Billy Bacon & The Forbidden Pigs;

Saturday, 25 July 2020

Elise Trouw is kind of amazing – she’s capable on drums, vocals, guitar, piano, bass guitar and synth stuff. Pretty hyno, kind of a Wendy Carlos meets Laurie Anderson meet John Bonham thing.

Lake Street Dive (featuring Rachael Price) on a yellow couch in 2016. Price was born in Australia and grew up in Tennessee. The band formed in Boston, but it’s not clear to me where (or if) they’re anchored.

Billy Bacon & the Forbidden Pigs were a hoot in their heyday. Saw the Pigs in So. Cal in the late ’80s, and they blew me away. Bacon would climb up ON his bass and jam, or take it to the floor for a roll around, and never miss a beat.

There’s something for (almost) everyone in that mix. Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow whether you like it or not.

“THIS YEAR HAS 11 OBBUCHES.”

From Google Translate:

President of Konya Chamber of Geological Engineers Dr. Fetullah Arık said that in the Karapınar region, 300 potholes occurred until 2017, 9 last year and 11 this year.
[…]
Arık also mentioned that the cultivation of water-consuming products such as corn and alfalfa in the region also triggered the formation of the sinkhole. Because there are natural geological factors; but maybe we can slow the formation. This happens if we can slow down the human factors a bit. In the region, many water consuming products such as corn and clover are grown. Considering that parts of Turkey received a rainfall falls below average groundwater level is accelerating the formation of sinkholes.

Yusuf Gültekin, who is engaged in animal husbandry and agriculture in the region, said that they are in constant fear and sometimes pray until morning. Explaining that a sinkhole was formed next to the house in the plateau in 2012, Gültekin said, “By chance, we did not come to our house in the plateau. If we were to come and sit, we could fall into the waist. We destroyed the part of the house near the sinkhole and made it a little further. We got used to this situation, there is nothing to do. These days are becoming frequent. I pray until morning at home.”
