Watch This 17-Year-Old Bad Ass Play With Los Lobos In Chicago

first_imgLos Lobos are currently on tour, welcoming special guests to share the stage from city to city. After a four-night stand at City Winery Chicago, the band made it over to SPACE in Evanston where seventeen-year-old Althea Grace made quite the impression. Thea is one half of the duo Future Stuff, who can only be described as Tedeschi Trucks Band meets The White Stripes meets Shakey Graves. So when the young singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist took the stage, fans of Lobos were pleasantly pleased with the in-your-face indie blues that the young woman had to offer.The not-yet-old-enough-to-drive show-stopper led the band through KoKo Taylor‘s “Voodoo Woman”, a song choice inspired by the cover that Susan Tedeschi performs. (Also note the Derek Trucks red Gibson SG). Thea first played with Lobos when she was eight-years-old, so to see how far she’s come since then was a treat for all.Thea and her band Future Stuff have a lot to be excited about, including an upcoming tour to be announced in the coming weeks. Check them out here, and enjoy the video below:[Photo by Edward Spinelli]last_img read more

Srikanth gets 1st round bye in Hong Kong as Momota pulls out

first_imgHong Kong: Kidambi Srikanth has avoided a possible first-round clash at the Hong Kong Open against Japanese world no.1 Kento Momota with the latter pulling out of the tournament. Srikanth has thus got a first-round bye and will either face France’s Brice Leverdez or compatriot Sourabh Verma. Momota had last week won the China Open, beating Chinese Taipei’s Chou Tien Chien in an epic final that lasted nearly one and a half hours. The final score stood 21-15, 17-21, 21-18 in his favour. This was his 10th title of the year and he is one of the favourites to win gold at the Olympics next year which will be held in his country.The 25-year-old has won 12 out of the 15 clashes that he has had with Srikanth in his career. Momota had earlier faced B Sai Praneeth in the semi-final of the BWF World Championships in August on his way to the gold medal.Srikanth will be looking for a turnaround in the tournament as his struggle to emulate his form in 2017 continues. He recently fell out of the top 10 of the BWF rankings and slid to 13th in the most recent update of the rankings.
