Widespread Panic Closes Out Milwaukee Run With Third Consecutive Black Sabbath Bust Out

first_imgLoad remaining images Never miss a Sunday show. That’s what fans who caught Widespread Panic’s third and final show at the Riverside Theatre in Milwaukee, WI were saying, wrapped up in the glory of the band’s rocking music.The first set alone was almost 20 minutes longer than the Friday or Saturday first sets, a good sign for what was to come. Singer and guitarist John Bell noted the anniversary of the first time the band played the Riverside, and then they immediately went into “Send Your Mind.” The set didn’t get rowdy, however, until they started “Disco.” The instrumental song got everyone in the crowd moving.“Greta” was next. This song always gets love in Milwaukee, and one only has to go back and listen to the Saturday 2014 version to see how much the fans love it. Last night’s version proved no different, and it’s possible the crowd got even more raucous last night than in 2014. Once keyboardist JoJo Hermann began seeing an extra chorus of “There’s a pack of rabid dogs…” the place erupted into a frenzy. It was amazing. “Stop/Go” featured some nice Fire on the Mountain teases, and “Blackout Blues” ended the set with an exclamation.They opened the second set with “Can’t Get High,” a problem that nobody attending the show seemed to be having. Panic slowed things down a bit with “Don’t Be Denied.” JB’s voice was crooning to the crowd, and everyone seemed mesmerized by it. When he sang the lyric, “We started a band…” an image of the WSP note eater logo flashed on the LED screens, and the crowd again erupted in jubilation and appreciation. “Rock” was particularly grungy and had that defining hard-edged Panic sound. After the drums segment, “Blue Indian” was standard awesome and a rocking “North” closed out the set.“Ain’t Life Grand” was the encore, and it was a sentiment to which both band and crowd could facilely relate at that moment. As with the two previous nights, the encore was a treat, and this Sunday show provided more of the same. This time they played Black Sabbath’s “Children of the Grave” and believe it or not this tune is even rarer than the other two covers, as “Children” hadn’t been played since 2007. One should note that Panic has been doing Black Sabbath covers from previous Halloween encores, so are they leading up to something for the Halloween show in Broomfield, CO? They have stops in Minneapolis and Ames before making it to the Rocky Mountain state, so we’ll see what other past-Halloween tricks they may have up their sleeve.So now that the 2016 Riverside run is completed, and Panic once again delivered on all three nights, there is only one question that remains: Will they be back next year? Their self-admitted intention to reduce touring in upcoming years suggests that they probably won’t. But maybe, because of the soft spot in their hearts for this great venue in a great city, they will find some time and treat this as the destination event it has become. I’m optimistic they’ll be back.Check out the full setlist below, courtesy of PanicStream, as well as a gallery from Ojeda Photography.Setlist: Widespread Panic at Riverside Theatre, Milwaukee, WI – 10/23/16Set 1: Send Your Mind, Last Straw > Christmas Katie > Saint Ex, Disco > Greta > Stop/Go, Goin’ Out West > Blackout Blues (72 mins)Set 2: Can’t Get High, Junior, Don’t Be Denied, Surprise Valley > Rock, Bust It Big > Drums > Cease Fire, Blue Indian, North (88 mins)Encore: Ain’t Life Grand, Children of the GraveNotes: ‘Children of the Grave’ LTP 10/31/07 Asheville (604 shows)last_img read more

Dodgers prospect Josh Sborz in a no-win situation for Quakes

first_imgDespite being healthy, there’s a high probability that Quakes right-handed starter Josh Sborz won’t win another game this season.But that won’t change one of the hottest prospects in an already-loaded Dodgers farm system.“I’m proud to go out and give my team a chance to win,” he said.And right now, that’s about all he can hope for, rather than be credited with actual wins. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “They told me about it, but after that I said don’t mention it to me again,” Sborz said. “I want to approach each start like it’s a normal start.”Unless he makes a relief appearance or is allowed to pitch at least five innings as a starter, Sborz won’t be able to win another game this season.He said he does feel better based on what Charlie Hough, a Dodgers senior advisor for player development told him: “You haven’t won a game until you’ve won a game in the big leagues.”He does hope, however, that limiting his innings now will allow him to continue to pitch in the playoffs.Sborz, 22, who entered the season as the Dodgers’ No. 17 prospect according to Baseball America, will most likely move up from that ranking for next season. In 15 starts this season for the Quakes, the California League all-star is 7-3 with a 2.66 ERA, striking out 81 and walking 22 in 84 2/3 innings.What he’s done has impressed Saylor.“Obviously, his stuff is tremendous,” Saylor said. “His slider is borderline plus-plus. And his curveball is getting better.“He’s a great teammate who does what it takes to help the team.”Although he might be end up being a reliever, serving as a starter in the minors has forced him to develop other pitches.“As a reliever, you can get by with two pitches,” he said. “My fastball and slider are my best two pitches, but I’ve been working on my curveball and changeup. Last year, I was primarily fastball/slider.“I think two big things have really progressed this year: My fastball, keeping it down, and working on my curveball.”Sborz, who hails from the Washington, D.C. area, has a brother, Jay Sborz, who made one big league relief appearance in 2010 for the Detroit Tigers and has since retired.If Josh Sborz continues his development, he could easily surpass his brother’s career and show Charlie Hough his first real win.center_img That’s because the 6-foot-3, 225-pound Sborz will be limited to just four innings per start the rest of the season. That’s been the case already for his last two starts despite allowing just five hits and three earned runs in the eight innings. Sborz’s restrictions come from the fact that prior to being a second-round supplemental pick by the Dodgers in 2015, he spent that season almost exclusively as a reliever for NCAA champion Virginia. In 2014, however, he was a starter at Virginia.“We want to limit him, since he was mostly a reliever last year,” Quakes manager Drew Saylor said.Sborz was also primarily a reliever last year as a pro, although he made three limited-inning starts with rookie-level Ogden and low Single-A Great Lakes before joining the Quakes. With the Quakes, he was exclusively a reliever and was key in the stretch run for the 2016 California League champions. Between the regular season and the playoffs for the Quakes, Sborz was 1-0 with four saves in four chances and a 2.20 ERA in 13 appearances.Despite the fact that as a reliever for the Quakes last year he rarely went more than an inning, Sborz isn’t thrilled about his innings limit this year.last_img read more
