first_imgDonald Fagen will lead Steely Dan through a five-date run with Steve Winwood, embarking on a European tour through Scotland, Ireland, and England from February 20th through the 28th. Tickets for the 2019 run go on sale this Friday, September 7th, at 10 a.m. (local) here.Steely Dan Upcoming 2019 Tour DatesFebruary 20 – SSE Hydro Glasgow, UKFebruary 21 – Manchester Arena Manchester, UKFebruary 23 – Genting Arena Birmingham, UKFebruary 25 – Wembley SSE Arena London, UKFebruary 28 – 3ARENA Dublin, IrelandView All Tour DatesIn September of last year, the world lost Steely Dan guitarist and co-founder Walter Becker. Steely Dan was one of the most important bands to come out of the ’70s, with Donald Fagen and Walter Becker’s unique approach to pop music—a slick combination of jazz, off-center chord progressions, meticulous arrangements, and introspective lyrics—leaving an indelible stamp on the world of music.In honor of such, the fourth-annual Brooklyn Comes Alive has organized a special tribute to Steely Dan. Returning to Brooklyn’s beloved Williamsburg neighborhood for an all-day music marathon on September 29th, a number of high-profile artists from across the live music spectrum will pay tribute to this remarkable group and to Becker.For this special upcoming Steely Dan tribute set, Joey Porter, resident keyboard virtuoso for the Colorado funk act The Motet and Brooklyn Comes Alive veteran, will serve as musical director, bringing the same care and attention that he has to his past BCA performances—Porter earned high praise when he brought his fan-favorite tribute to Herbie Hancock to BCA last year, making it one of the most buzzed-about performances of the festival, plus he joined the rest of his Motet brethren (and more) in honoring Jamiroquai during a packed performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg.Porter has tapped a number of other beloved players from the live music community (many of whom have become staple performers for Brooklyn Comes Alive) to join him in honoring the prolific catalog of Steely Dan. Representing two-thirds of The Nth Power, both bassist Nate Edgar and guitarist Nick Cassarino will be on hand for the performance, as will Porter’s bandmate, vocalist Lyle Divinsky. Turkuaz‘s drummer Michelangelo Carubba and vocalist Sammi Garett will also perform, as will Snarky Puppy percussionist Nate Werth, saxophonist Chris Bullock, and trumpeter Mike “Maz” Maher. Returning to Brooklyn Comes Alive on the heels of 2017’s outstanding tribute to iconic ’90s female artists, charismatic singer Hayley Jane and Kung Fu guitarist Tim Palmieri round out the all-star lineup.[H/T JamBase]last_img read more

Barcelona star set to be benched in crunch Bayern clash

first_img The Catalan giants face the Bundesliga champions at the Estadio de Luz on August 14, after overcoming Napoli in the round of last 16. However, according to the front page of Tuesday’s edition of Diario Sport, Setien will rotate his side and strengthen his midfield options against Thiago Alcantara, Ivan Perisic and Leon Goretzka.Sergio Busquets and Arturo Vidal both missed the win over Gennaro Gattuso’s side through suspension, and at least one of them will return to the side, with Setien changing to a 4-4-2 system.That could mean French international Griezmann missing out, with Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi leading the line against Hans-Dieter Flick’s side.

DraftKings Lineup Picks: MLB DFS strategy, sleepers for Monday, April 22

first_imgOutfield: Outfield: David Peralta, Diamondbacks @ Pirates ($4,500). With Jimenez out of the White Sox lineup, we’re pivoting to Peralta, who faces a pitcher in Joe Musgrove who’s been notably worse against lefties in his career (.269/.324/.444). We’re $100 away from affording Eddie Rosario, so perhaps we should do more finagling to get him in the lineup, but Peralta can crush anywhere and shouldn’t be all that highly owned.Outfield: Chad Pinder, A’s vs. Rangers ($3,500). Pinder is another splits play, as he’s hit .283/.349/.464 vs. lefties his career. That’s improved to .357/.357/.571 this season. To be fair, his home/road splits are not pretty (.653 OPS at home; 1.060 on the road), but we’ll play the pitcher, not the park. Pinder makes for the perfect low-cost OF to round out our A’s stack. It’s a 10-game slate tonight on DraftKings, and with a Colorado game, a Camden game, and weather worries in the matchup with our top two pitchers, you know it’s going to be an interesting night for lineup building. Our picks lean heavily on sleepers with the stat splits in their favor, but given that several are veterans off to slow starts this year, we recognize the inherent risk we’re taking in MLB DFS contests.Even with the “risks”, our lineup might be more of a cash play than tournament one. Our pitchers and a few of our OFs might give us enough differentiation in tournaments (along with our complete fading of Rockies, Brewers, Cardinals, and Astros), but it can always be difficult to guess ownership. Ultimately, we just put together a lineup we like, and if it does well, we should be in the money. Watch ChangeUp, a new MLB live whip-around show on DAZNThe first major decision was whether to ignore the weather in Boston. Chris Sale and Matthew Boyd have the highest upside of any two pitchers on the slate (and both are actually cheaper than our No. 1, J.A. Happ), but with rain in the forecast, we’re not biting. We can always pivot closer to lineup lock, but that game is off limits for now. (Update: Tigers-Red Sox has been postponed.)We also went the chea route in the Coors Field game, which isn’t always the best strategy. It’s nice to get a piece of that matchup, but ownership percentages could tilt against us. Sometimes, it makes sense to just pay up for the studs in Coors and find bargains elsewhere. Our Nats stack averages 32 years of age and 2.3 HRs this year, so we have that going for us.MORE: Monday SP rankings | DFS lineup BuilderDraftKings Lineup Picks: Monday, April 22Starting Pitcher: J.A. Happ, Yankees @ Angels ($9,300). Happ hasn’t been particularly good this year, largely because of struggles with the long ball. But it should be noted that three of his four starts have come in Yankee Stadium, and the fourth was at Camden Yards — all preeminent hitters parks. Finally in a neutral-to-favorable environment, we like his chances, especially when you factor in the Angels mediocrity vs. lefties this year (23rd in wRC+). We also think the depleted Yankees lineup can scratch together enough runs against Matt Harvey to give Happ a good shot at a win.Starting Pitcher: Yonny Chirinos, Rays vs. Royals ($7,400). The concern with Chirinos is that he won’t go much more than five innings, but the numbers are stellar (8.8 K/9, 1.9 BB/9, 3.26/0.83) and the matchup is doable. Kansas City’s offense hasn’t been nearly as good on the road this year (81 wRC+ compared to 105 at home), so Chirinos seems like a bargain at this price. He went seven strong innings in his first outing of the season, so at least we know it’s possible he can go deep into a game.Catcher: Yan Gomes, Nationals @ Rockies ($4,200). Our Nationals stack (hopefully) begins with Gomes, who’s no lock to be in the lineup. If he is, we like him to get going against lefty Tyler Anderson. Gomes is a career .279/.334/.471 hitter against southpaws, and obviously the Colorado factor comes into play here. If he’s out, we have enough in our budget to pivot up to Kurt Suzuki ($4,400), so we can have the Nationals backstop regardless.First Base: Ryan Zimmerman, Nationals @ Rockies ($4,300). Zimmerman is another Nats veteran who traditionally crushes lefties (.310/.390/.525) but has done very little this year. Getting him as the 12th highest-priced 1B on a night when he’s at Coors Field against a southpaw is almost too easy of a call. In fact, Zimmerman might be more of a cash game play than a tournament guy given his likely high ownership, but if he does anything, you’ll want him in your lineup. Jose Abreu at $4,400 is a solid pivot is you don’t want to take the bait on Zimmerman.Second Base: Brian Dozier, Nationals @ Rockies ($4,300). Everything we just said about Zimmerman applies to Dozier. The veteran has had a painfully slow start to the season, but he’s picked it up a bit lately with homers in two of his past three games. Dozier is tied for the eighth highest-priced 2B on DK, which is a fair price all things considered. Third Base: Matt Chapman, A’s vs. Rangers ($3,900). We can’t figure out why Chapman is priced so affordably. It feels like a trap. Sure, he’s at home, but his career .265/.343/.482 line in Oakland isn’t that much different than his career road numbers. He’s also actually been a little worse against lefties in his career, but, again, his .263/.343/.466 line still gets the job done. We originally liked Renato Nunez in this spot, but with odd reverse splits against lefties and a whopping $4,600 price tag, we decided Chapman was the much better value. Again, this might be more of a cash play than a tournament one, but we’ll take it. Upgrading to Matt Carpenter for $300 against rookie Adrian Houser is also a solid move here, but that’s likely not going to help with ownership worries.Shortstop: Gleyber Torres, Yankees @ Angels ($3,900). Yes, Torres is better against lefties, but his career road OPS (.824) is actually higher than his home mark (.797). Either way, he can hit Matt Harvey anywhere, and if the Yankees are going to score some runs for our pitcher, Torres will likely have to be a catalyst.Outfield: Khris Davis, A’s vs. Rangers ($4,400). So, Davis hasn’t homered in six games and now he’s only $4,400? He’s killed the ball at home throughout his A’s career (.883 OPS compared to .837 on the road), and his work against lefties this year is terrifying (1.170 OPS). With Leury Garcia (among many others) priced above him, Davis feels like an absolute steal.last_img read more
