The Brothers Comatose Surprise Mall Shoppers By Performing In An Elevator [Watch]

first_imgWhile shopping malls often have music playing, very rarely is that music as intimate as what you’re about to see. The Brothers Comatose have a new album called The Covers EP: Volume 2 out now (order it here), and did some direct marketing at the Westfield Mall in San Francisco, CA. There, the five piece string outfit set up shop inside the elevator, and let hilarity ensue as they performed covers for unsuspecting crowds inside the elevator!Now dubbed “The Elevator Sessions,” these videos capture the band in their element, interacting with fans and playing the music they love. “It’s been super fun seeing people’s reactions to the moment the elevator doors open and there’s a full band playing inside,” says Ben Morrison. “It brings lots of smiles and laughter, which is really what we’re all about.”The first video from the series sees The Brothers Comatose perform a cover of CAKE’s “Stickshifts and Safetybelts.” No strangers to unique covers, the brothers actually started their band by playing back wall covers, and ultimately grew into writing their own music. This cover really takes the CAKE!Check out the first Elevator Sessions video below, filmed by Jacob Skaggs, featuring The Brothers Comatose’s performance of “Stickshifts and Safetybelts” at the Westfield Mall in San Francisco.Ben Morrison tells us more about how the video came to be. “Jacob Skaggs (our video maker) actually brought the idea of playing and filming in an elevator. We brainstormed ways to make the most of it and figured doing it in downtown San Francisco during the holidays would make for the craziest and most memorable moments. We figured it would be chaotic with everyone shopping for the holidays and it definitely turned out that way. All 5 of the band members, plus Jacob and a sound guy, packed into the large elevator in Macy’s in downtown SF and we just started playing. We would go from floor to floor and 90% of the time, the doors would open and people would get excited and hop on with us to hear us play a song. Ultimately, we got the opportunity to make people smile for that short ride to their next floor and hopefully the craziness of it sticks with them and makes their day a little better.”Right on!

Colombian and Ecuadorean Navies Agree to Exchange Information

first_img The measure will make it possible “to engage in exhaustive monitoring in both countries, especially in the case of theft of motorboats,” the officer indicated in a statement. He added that the action originated in a binational coordination meeting of the border port captaincies, held last week in Esmeraldas (in northwestern Ecuador), where shared problems were evaluated. So far this year, the Colombian Navy has detained a dozen Ecuadorean-flagged fishing vessels for being in Colombian Pacific waters illegally. The Colombian and Ecuadorean Navies have agreed to exchange information with a view toward combatting illicit activities along the maritime border between the two countries, the Ecuadorean service’s national director of aquatic spaces, Rear Admiral Luis Chávez, announced on April 16. center_img By Dialogo April 18, 2012 Chávez said that in addition, communications protocols and mechanisms for when vessels and crew members from other countries are apprehended were established, as well as plans to hold a binational search-and-rescue exercise in Colombia during the second half of 2012. last_img read more

Kenrick Tyson sentenced to life imprisonment for murder

first_imgLocalNews Kenrick Tyson sentenced to life imprisonment for murder by: – March 28, 2012 Share Kenrick Tyson. Life in prison is the sentence Kenrick Tyson was given when he appeared before Judge Bernie Stephenson Brooks in the High Court on Wednesday Morning.On February 23rd, 2012 a nine member jury found Tyson guilty of murdering Cecil James of Concord between the 9th and 10th of May, 2009.Based on the evidence led in Court Tyson struck James on the head with a piece of 2 x 4” wood and he was found laying on his bed at Hibiscus Valley Inn in Concord by a co-worker Nigel Warrington on the 10th of May, 2009.The Director of Public Prosecutions Gene Pestaina called eight witnesses to testify including the former girl friend of the accused whose testimony implicated him.It was her evidence that both she and the accused waited for the deceased outside his house in a ‘shack’, saw James come home, waited until he went to sleep and struck him on the head three times with a piece of wood.The defence team did not call any witnesses after the state closed its case but made an application for a no case submission. Defense counsel Wayne Norde told the Court that the Prosecution failed to provide evidence; pathologist report or autopsy report, indicating what the cause of death was and without that crucial evidence he argued the trial should be dismissed.That submission was not upheld by Justice Stevenson Brooks and the jury proceeded to deliberate and found Tyson guilty.Based on a pre-sentence social inquiry and psychiatric report which was ordered by Justice Stevenson-Brooks, Tyson, who is the father of 6 children, was brought up in a “destitute upbringing”. He was also portrayed as “aggressive, a known criminal element in society and one who terrorized the community” by members of his community.The report also made reference to Tysons’ alcohol use and that he had shown “no remorse for his actions”.The psychiatric report from consultant psychiatrist Dr. Griffin Benjamin stated that Tyson was not diagnosed with any “psychiatric conditions and that he had not accepted responsibility for the murder”.Benjamin’s report further stated that Tyson had showed very little remorse for his actions”.In her sentencing report Justice Brooks said she noted that Tyson had suffered “the loss of a limb during the ordeal,” however she also considered that he “failed to show remorse for his actions” coupled with the “bad social inquiry report painted by members of his community and peers”.Justice Stevenson-Brooks said the murder was “coldblooded, brutal and senseless” and there is need to send a “strong message to all, that crimes which ultimately result in the death of a person will not be tolerated”.She said “the aggravating factors had outweighed the mitigation facts” but she will “temper justice with mercy” and sentence him to life imprisonment for a crime which carries a penalty of death.Tyson who was represented by Wayne Norde disclosed to reporters after the sentencing that he intends to appeal the sentence.Dominica Vibes News Share Sharecenter_img Sharing is caring! 111 Views   one comment Tweetlast_img read more
