Has it been twenty years already? Phish released their classic album Billy Breathes on October 15th, 1996, and the album launched the band in new directions. Released during the height of the band’s most creative period, Billy Breathes contains absolute classics like “Free”, “Theme From the Bottom”, “Character Zero”, “Taste”, and “Waste”, marking a shift towards the band’s more generally-accessible songwriting.With that in mind, beloved venue Brooklyn Bowl has teamed up with Brookladelphia to put together the ultimate 20th birthday party for Billy Breathes. Twenty Years Later: A Celebration of the 20th Anniversary of Phish’s Billy Breathes will find six up-and-coming jam bands performing original sets of music, all while weaving the entirety of Billy Breathes into the night’s setlist. The bands–Aqueous, Jimkata, Teddy Midnight, Cousin Earth, Escaper, and Bad Faces–will divvy up the album and spread its songs throughout the night, with each band delivering their unique take on tracks from the classic album.The show will take place on Sunday, November 6th, and tickets are on-sale now (and can be purchased at this link). You can find more info on the show and the artists involved at Brooklyn Bowl’s website.We can’t wait to get to the Bowl to celebrate one of our all-time favorite albums!
On Oct. 15 credit unions worldwide will be celebrating International Credit Union Day (ICU Day). Celebrated for the first time in 1948, this annual event raises global awareness for the credit union movement through outreach, volunteering, fundraising and other ICU Day-themed activities. Credit unions bring financial inclusion and a promising future to people all over the world, and ICU Day is a chance to spotlight and celebrate these achievements.“This year’s theme for ICU Day is ‘Inspiring hope for a global community,” says Michelle Kamke, marketing projects manager at CUNA. “What better way to show how credit unions from across the world provide hope through financial services, education and support than to highlight how credit unions have advanced the lives of members during the economic uncertainty wrought by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.”Participating credit unions can showcase how members and non-members alike can turn to them for financial services, guidance and relief during everyday hurdles, unexpected loss or disaster. You’re encouraged to share your memorable ICU Day plans and highlights with credit unions worldwide on social media using #ICUDay. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

They emerged from a number of different companies each of which was keen to represent us overseas.“We will be working with Infront over the coming weeks to agree deals in those territories where SPFL football is not currently shown.”Infront Senior Vice President Football Stephan Herth added: “Infront has a long and successful history within the football industry and we are delighted to begin working with the SPFL to bring matches to fans of Scottish football around the world.“The SPFL has its own unique legacy. As the second oldest league in the world, it has welcomed many top players and managers over the past few decades. That history will almost certainly be added to in the next seasons. Infront looks forward to building on that legacy and taking the league to a new level on the international stage during that time.”
