Gypsy Sally’s hosted a release party for Cris Jacobs Band‘s new album, Dust to Gold on Friday, November 4th in Washington, DC. Jacobs, a local favorite and the former front man of The Bridge, has had what the Washington Post dubbed “an inspired year.” Shortly before beginning work on the album, he learned he would be a father and welcomed his daughter into the world only three weeks before Dust to Gold was released.Jacobs has become a staple at the Georgetown waterfront venue, with frequent performances both with his own group and other projects, like Everyone Orchestra and his annual “A Very Jerry Christmas” shows. The band seems to have settled into a consistent lineup, with Jacobs joined at Gypsy Sally’s by the same crew he recorded the album with; Jonathan Sloane backing up guitar, Todd Herrington on bass, and Dusty Ray Simmons on drums.They were thrown a curveball when Jacobs’ cigar box guitar (quite literally three strings stretched over a cigar box) stopped working. They’ve never played “Bone Digger” or “Turn into Gold” without it before, but the crowd was into it and those songs became the highlight of the night. As the saying goes, when life gives you lemons, grab your six string and rip a mean solo.Thanks to taper, Will Urquhart, you can check out soundboard recordings of their full set.
Swansea return to league business with Laudrup adamant their strong campaign must not finish with a damp squib. The Swans have compiled 37 points from 27 games, just three short of Laudrup’s initial target of 40 points. But the Dane does not want a repeat of last season, where the Welsh side tailed off badly after getting to 39 points, winning just two of their final nine games. He said: “If you look at some of the sides we have to play, they all have something to play for. Newcastle are not 100 per cent safe, neither are Norwich. West Brom are still playing for a place in Europe while Arsenal and Tottenham are going for the Champions League. “We cannot stop being competitive because if we do we will lose all the games. “It is part of being more mature; I am not saying we have to win six or seven of these games but we must keep being competitive. “Look at last year when the team reached 39 points after some very good weeks, then suddenly lost five of the last nine, so we cannot stop competing, we have to go on.” The only low point in last weekend’s emphatic 5-0 Capital One Cup final victory over Bradford was the unseemly row between Nathan Dyer and Jonathan de Guzman over who would take Swansea’s spot-kick, after Matt Duke had been sent off for bringing down the Dutch international. But Laudrup has confirmed De Guzman is now Swansea’s designated penalty taker, and said: “It was was very unusual as we had not had a penalty before, but maybe we will now have a penalty on Saturday. As for who will take it – you never change a winner so if Jonathan de Guzman is on the pitch he will have it.” Manager Michael Laudrup has moved to make sure there will be no penalty ructions when Swansea face Newcastle on Saturday.
