Philly Funk Band Swift Technique Makes Appearance In Orange Is The New Black Finale

first_imgFans everywhere have been excited to binge watch the new season of Orange Is The New Black, which was released by Netflix on Friday, June 17th. We were delighted to learn that one of our favorite Philly bands, Swift Technique, was featured in the final episode of this season. The group answered a casting call with a YouTube video and got the gig, only to rock out for the cast on set.Bassist Jake Leschinsky shares some thoughts of his experience with us.“We had an absolute blast working with the cast & crew of Orange Is The New Black. It was an honor to be called upon by this particular show that is currently on the cutting edge of modern television. The opportunity was twofold – we spent an intensive day in the studio cutting a track for the show & we spent one day filming on set. The project materialized very quickly and we even had to cancel a high profile show. When all was said and done, I was so proud to see our guys rise to the occasion and absolutely knock this out of the park.”Congrats to Swift Technique!For fans of their funk, don’t miss the band performing a tribute to Prince at Brooklyn’s The Hall At MP, supporting an all-star “James Brown Vs. Prince” super jam session with members of Lettuce, Trey Anastasio Band, Rubblebucket, Turkuaz and more. The show is this Wednesday, June 22nd, and more information can be found here. The band will then head to the Ardmore Music Hall on June 24th for a performance alongside Con Brio, so don’t miss out! More info can be found here.last_img read more

Chinese tourists welcome to extend their stays: Bali deputy governor

first_img“Our immigration will be more flexible toward Chinese tourists who overstay their visits,” said the deputy governor.Moreover, Tjokorda said he would do his best to prevent discrimination against Chinese tourists, in light of the coronavirus.“By installing thermal scanners in the airport, as well as other methods, we hope the public will stop worrying about the virus, which could lead to discrimination against Chinese tourists in hotels or other places in Bali,” he said. Bali has prepared anticipatory measures against the spread of the coronavirus by implementing a monitoring system, which has been used since the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) outbreak in the early 2000s. The Bali administration has allowed Chinese tourists in the island to extend their visas despite the government’s travel restrictions to prevent a coronavirus outbreak. Bali Deputy Governor Tjokorda Oka Artha Ardhana Sukawati said he welcomed Chinese tourists with open arms if they felt safer in Indonesia.The Chinese tourists in Bali did not have to return to their country because of the temporary restrictions, he added. “We believe that the government will be able to handle the coronavirus case properly so that the relationship between Indonesia and China, especially in the tourism sector, will be able to return to its previous state,” Tjokorda said as quoted by Antara, adding that the province, also known as the Island of the Gods, would hold mass prayers at Pura Batur temple in Bangli, hoping for an end to the outbreak.Meanwhile, Chinese Consul General in Denpasar Gou Haodong said he felt touched by the Bali administration and the public’s friendly attitude toward Chinese residents in light of the coronavirus outbreak. He also appreciated the Indonesian government’s efforts to protect the country. “We hope for everyone’s support if the Chinese government picks up the Chinese tourists to return to the country,” Haodong said.

So we’ll try, as well as using our skill, to use our heart, to use the fight we have in the dressing room to show people what we can do.” New Delhi: Uncapped all-rounder Sam Curran has been given a debut call-up in to the England squad for the second test against Pakistan as a cover for injured Ben Stokes, the England and Wales Cricket Board said on Wednesday.Earlier, Stokes suffered a hamstring straing during fielding practice, but has not yet been ruled out of the second test match against Pakistan.The 19-year-old Curran, a left-arm seamer plays for English club Surrey and has taken more than 100 first-class wickets, and has an average of 27.18 with the bat.  For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more
