The Disco Biscuits Share 20-Minute Pro-Shot Video Of “Helicopters” From Vegas Run

first_imgThis fall, The Disco Biscuits hit Las Vegas for a run leading up to Halloween joining Phish in Sin City and inevitably turning the city into a mecca for jam aficionados. The Biscuits have been releasing pro-shot videos from Vegas in recent weeks, with a video of “Once The Fiddler Paid” from their final night of the run debuting last week.Now, the Biscuits have added a clip from their performance on the 28th with the release of a video of “Helicopters.” The pro-shot video captures the first rendition of “Helicopters,” which kicked off a giant “Helicopters” sandwich that ended the first set of that night. Following a cover of the 80’s classic hit, “The Safety Dance,” this 24-minute “Helicopters” builds on itself beautifully, cutting out before the band moved into “Hot Air Balloon” and “Astronaut” before ending the show with a return to this first track. Check out video from the night below, courtesy of the band.Setlist: The Disco Biscuits | Brooklyn Bowl Vegas | Las Vegas, NV | 10/28/2016 Set One: Resurrection> The Safety Dance> Helicopters> Hot Air Balloon> Astronaut> HelicoptersSet Two: Above The Waves> Floes> Above The Waves> Tricycle> Above The WavesEncore: Frog Legslast_img read more

GVC aims for highest standards operating in an uncertain world

first_imgShare GVC absorbs retail shocks as business recalibrates for critical H2 trading August 13, 2020 Submit GVC hires ‘comms pro’ Tessa Curtis to re-energise media profile  August 25, 2020 Better Collective cautious on quick recovery as COVID drags growth momentum August 25, 2020 Related Articles Share StumbleUpon Sports betting is beginning to return ‘in-line with expectations’ as live sports resume across all markets, said Barry Gibson, Chairman of GVC.Making his first public statement as Chairman, Gibson praised the COVIbetting group’s ability to respond ‘swiftly’ to the closure of its UK retail estate following government-imposed lockdown measures.The GVC Chairman also lauded the operator’s ability to meet its target of operating as a cash neutral company throughout the lockdown, and remained encouraged by the ‘early signs as customers return to the high street’.Gibson said: “While it is disappointing not to be able to hold a physical AGM for shareholders, safety is, of course, paramount as we continue to follow government guidelines to manage the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Board looks forward to getting together in person with shareholders later in the year at a shareholder engagement forum in the UK, regulations permitting.“As sports events were cancelled and retail outlets were closed in mid-March, GVC responded swiftly and decisively achieving our target of operating at cash neutral through the period. We also increased our financial flexibility through a relaxation of the covenants on our Revolving Credit Facility.“Throughout the period our online gaming businesses continued to trade strongly, and as we see the resumption of sporting events across our business our sport volumes are returning in-line with expectations.“Our retail outlets in England have now been open for a little over a week, albeit with extensive social distancing measures in place, and we are encouraged by the early signs as customers return to the high street. As a result, GVC is well-positioned to emerge from this period in a position of financial and operational strength.”Gibson reiterated the work that the betting group has carried out to ensure that it maintains a high standard of social responsibility and corporate governance across the business, highlighting the work that has been carried out to best protect punters.GVC, which resecured its FTSE100 blue-chip status last month, expressed that while the economic outlook across the world remains uncertain, the betting group remained optimistic about GVC’s long-term prospects.Gibson continued: “We continue to embed the highest standards of governance across the business as an integral part of our day-to-day activities. Providing our customers with products and services that they can use in a safe and enjoyable environment is our guiding light, as well as protecting the small number of those customers who may be at risk.“We are constantly evolving and improving our safer gambling policies, procedures and technologies. As ever, we are committed to working closely with regulators to ensure that any changes in legislation will be evidence-based, carefully considered and focused on good outcomes for customers, improving player safety and limiting problem gambling, rather than knee-jerk decisions that could end up inadvertently damaging player safety.“While the economic outlook around the world remains uncertain, the resilience of our performance during this hugely challenging period and the extraordinary loyalty, dedication and hard work that our teams around the world are showing mean that we remain as confident as ever in GVC’s long-term prospects.”last_img read more
