Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Pittsburgh-based jam band Rusted Root is slated to play their fourth show ever at The Paramount in Huntington on Dec. 27—earning them the distinction of most performances by a single act at the Huntington venue.The band, best known for their upbeat, catchy hit single “Send Me On My Way,” also just happened to be the first ever band to play at the venue during their soft opening in August 2012 that preceded the official first big show starring Elvis Costello.“We’re always trying to push the boundaries a little bit—in the way that we create music—but also the type of music that we’re playing and the different sounds we’re bringing to it,” Michael Glabicki, the band’s lead singer, founding member and songwriter, told The Aquarian Weekly. The band initially gained notice with their independently released album, Cruel Sun, in 1992. Their unique sound, a fusion of world, rock, and acoustic music, secured the band a spot on music-lover’s album shelves worldwide. The band’s major-label debut album, When I Woke, gave them their best-known single, “Send Me On My Way.” The song has been enjoyed internationally, due to its popularity in various films and television shows, including Ice Age, Matilda, and New Girl, as well as Enterprise Rent-a-Car commercials.The band has continued to generate exceptional albums and extended plays for decades. Well-regarded within the music industry, Rusted Root have toured with renowned artists such as Carlos Santana, The Grateful Dead, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant.Their music has origins in traditional African, Latin American, and Native American sounds, but is never tied down to a specific genre. Choosing to not allowing past music choices pigeonhole them to one singular style, and always being willing to explore new territory, Rusted Root consistently produces music that is both exciting and different.Rusted Root never followed common expectations after their band went mainstream. Instead, they continued experimenting with music in ways that other bands in the spotlight simply weren’t. Their music draws inspiration from all over the world, and is endlessly uplifting.Band members prides themselves on fan interaction. They often communicate back and forth with devotees on Twitter and give free music downloads to their Facebook fans. Their upcoming, yet-to-be-titled album was partially funded through an Indiegogo campaign, using fans’ donations to write and create new music, with donators receiving perks as unbelievable as private concerts.It is nearly impossible to leave a Rusted Root show in anything but a good mood. The band’s concerts are a fun time for both fans that have followed them from their origins 25 years ago, to younger fans who are invited onstage to sing along.The band’s musical prowess, versatility and incredible stage presence will be on full display Saturday, Dec. 27th at The Paramount in Huntington, as will their infamous good vibes. Additionally, any participants in the 3rd Annual Paramount Holiday Blood Drive 2-8 p.m. on Dec. 23 will receive a free ticket to the show.The Paramount, 370 New York Ave., Huntington. paramountny.com $15-$40 8 p.m. Dec. 27.

Despite the news surrounding Corey Clement’s prognosis and the looming excitement of the first night game in Madison in three years, the football game still will be played Saturday night.Football: Corey Clement to miss 4-6 weeksCorey Clement’s supposed breakout season is going to wait at least another month to take off. University of Wisconsin head Read…The matchup: No. 22 Wisconsin against Hawaii. It will be the first meeting between the two teams since Dec. 5, 2009. The Badgers won that game 51-10 in Honolulu and lead the all-time series 5-1, winning the last five.The Badgers (2-1) will look to extend their home winning streak to double digits, as the current mark sits at nine consecutive victories in Camp Randall.Hawaii (2-1)Head coach Norm Chow leads his team into Camp Randall with a winning record for the first time in his entire tenure as head coach at Hawaii.Since Chow took over four seasons ago, Hawaii is 10-30.The reversal of fortune this year comes at the hands of quarterback Max Wittek, a transfer from USC, and running back Paul Harris.Harris has averaged 87 yards per game on the ground, and Wittek has thrown for five touchdowns and five yards over the first three games of the season.The challenge Hawaii presents, Badgers defensive coordinator Dave Aranda said, is their ability to spread the defense out and their ability to call either a run or a pass out of the same formation.“They spread you out,” Aranda said. “They line up those No. 1 receivers outside the numbers.”That, Aranda said, forces the defense to run a single-high safety, which Wisconsin will employ Saturday night. It leaves defenses susceptible to big plays if receivers can break a tackle after a short pass on a slant or a hitch.Against No. 1 Ohio State two weeks ago, Hawaii fought hard for three quarters, trailing 17-0 going into the fourth.UW head coach Paul Chryst said Hawaii’s physicality makes for a good challenge.“I think they’re a team that loves the physical part of the game,” Chryst said. “I think their schemes play to that and I think they’ve got some really good football players.” Game informationWhen: Saturday, Sept. 26, 7 p.m.Where: Camp Randall Stadium (80,321), Madison, WisconsinTV: Big Ten Network (Joe Beninati, J.

By Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily SportsThe Nelson Leafs appeared to have solved that dreaded problem scoring.Now the two-time Kootenay International Junior Hockey League finalist has added some grit in front of the net, which could make finding goals even easier.Leaf coach and GM Chris Shaw announced Thursday the team is getting a bigger presence in front of the net after the team acquired 6’2”, 190-pound Evan Moir from the Calgary Canucks of the Alberta Junior Hockey League.The acquisition of Moir comes on the same weekend that Shaw is getting back 6’2”, 200-pound winger Cody Abbey back from a shoulder injury.“Evan is a power forward that’s a good fast skater who can carry the puck and has a good physical presence on the ice,” Shaw told The Nelson Daily Thursday. “And now that we have Cody Abbey back also, it should make a big difference for us.”The on-again, off-again Leafs appear to be back on after racking up a pair of wins. The first win was not totally unexpected against Grand Forks. However, Sunday’s win in Spokane over the red hot Braves was a victory that could provide the Leafs with some much-needed confidence as the squad attempts to climb the Murdoch Division standings.“We got back to the basics in practice and put in some hard work,” Shaw explained. “I’ve always been a believer you play the way you practice so we put our hard hats on, did some dryland and it paid off for us.”The dedication to detail combined with a few changes on the power play allowed the Leafs to snap out of a 1-for-31 slump with the man advantage.“We changed some things as far as entering the opposition zone differently,” Shaw said. “Once in the zone the guys were really passing the puck around and had some good finishing.”The Leafs hope to extend the streak a few more games than two when the club plays host to Kimberley Dynamiters Saturday at 7 p.m. in the NDCC Arena.Sunday it’s off to Spokane once again for an afternoon contest against the Braves.LEAF NOTES: Kyle Alexander’s stay in Nelson was brief after Shaw sent the former Flin Flon defenceman to Helena, Mont. of the Northern Pacific Junior Hockey League for future considerations. Alexander played only two games in a Leaf jersey . . . Two Leaf players, forward Tanner Burns and Colton Malmsten, will see action Friday for the Trail Smoke Eaters of the BCHL. The Smokies host the Victoria Grizzlies in Trail. Both players will return to the Leafs for the two weekend [email protected]
