Huffington Post - about 1 year
A Malibu family who sustained injuries in the fatal February car crash involving Caitlyn Jenner has sued the Olympic gold medalist. The Wolf-Millesi family reportedly filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court Friday suing Jenner for negligence in the Feb. 7 crash that left one woman dead. In the crash, which happened on the Pacific Coast Highway, Jenner reportedly rear-ended a car driven by Kim Howe into oncoming traffic. A vehicle driven by Peter Wolf-Millesi struck Howe's car, killing her. According to the lawsuit, four members of the Wolf-Millesi family and another occupant of their vehicle sustained serious injuries in the crash.  In a statement after the accident, Jenner called the crash "a devastating tragedy." She added, "I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them."

Hot 'Effing' Tuna Takes the Beacon Theater By Storm
Huffington Post - about 2 years
It's often been said, "There's nothing like a Grateful Dead concert." While that's certainly true, there is also nothing like a Hot Tuna concert. Unlike Dead Heads, Tuna Fans tend to be more rowdy and aggressive, less "Peace and Love, man" and more likely to scream out "Hot Fuckin Tuna" to regularly startle everybody. The most recent Beacon Theater' Hot Tuna' concert on December 13, 2014 was exemplary in every way. And, it was the Beacon Theater that always makes it a grand Tuna affair. When Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady play together, whether it's an acoustic show or righteously electric, Hot Tuna fans show up in force. And they're generally not playing hackey sack or selling bean sprout wraps in the parking lot. Much more likely to find them in close-by bars drinking beer and talking about "Come Back Baby" from the Capitol Theater in Passaic, New Jersey on 11/20/76. While rowdier, Hot Tuna fans love their Jack & Jorma and each other. When Jack & Jo ...

Hard Working Americans Know How to Get the Job Done, Seriously
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Todd Snider was rummaging through his mail during a three-way cross-country phone conversation in early December, when Christmas apparently came early. "Holy shit, I think someone just sent me a bunch of drugs," the funky folk singer-songwriter announced from Nashville. "That's mushrooms." David Schools, Snider's quick-thinking partner in the Hard Working Americans who's also the formidable force behind the Modulus Graphite bass as one of Widespread Panic's founding members, didn't miss a beat on a separate line from San Francisco. "Interview's over." Just another day in the life of a well-traveled troubadour served as quite an introduction to what could be one of the most intriguing configurations of 2014, a jelly-and-jam band with folk-you-up tendencies and Workingman's Deadhead blues moves. Hopefully, this will be the start of a beautiful friendship. These five original Hard Working Americans formed in mid-2013 to quickly record their deliriously dynamic self-titled firs ...

American Eagle pilot charged in alcohol incident
Fox News - almost 4 years
An American Eagle pilot has been charged with three gross misdemeanors after authorities say he failed a blood-alcohol test as he prepared to fly out of the Minneapolis airport in January. Forty-eight-year-old Kolbjorn Jarle Kristiansen (Kriss-tee-YAHN'-sen) was arrested at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport on Jan. 4 after airport police said they smelled alcohol on his breath before a flight to New York City. Authorities say a preliminary test revealed a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.107. The limit for commercial pilots is 0.04. Kristiansen, who lives in Raleigh, N.C., was charged Tuesday with three counts related to attempting to operate an aircraft under the influence of alcohol. Kristiansen's attorney, Peter Wold, says his client never operated the aircraft or touched the controls. Wold says Kristiansen remains suspended from American Eagle.

Tonight in Music: Damien Jurado, Behemoth, Caveman and more!
The Portland Mercury - almost 5 years
DAMIEN JURADO, PETER WOLF CRIER, KELLI SCHAEFER (Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison) Read our article on Damien Jurado. BEHEMOTH, WATAIN, THE DEVIL'S BLOOD, IN SOLITUDE, STONEBURNER (Hawthorne Theatre, 1507 SE 39th) When you see a band play, you expect to hear your favorite songs live and see their stage show. Your sense of smell never really enters into the equation unless the dude in front of you is farting all night. Watain's shows are a little different. There, you will see Erik Danielsson and his cronies drenched in blood and corpse paint, wearing clothes that look like they are rotting off their bodies. You will also hear their brand of Lucifer-approved Swedish black metal, and probably a little bit of Danielsson's Satanic rhetoric. The one thing that sets Watain apart from any live band you will ever witness is the stale stench of death they emit. If you think for a second that it can't be that bad, think of how bad it could be, and multiply that by 12 rotten goat heads on s ...
