The New Mastersounds Donate Half Of Last Night’s Show Proceeds To Standing Rock

first_imgEarlier this week, The New Mastersounds encountered the Standing Rock protests firsthand while traveling from Montana to Minnesota. The band checked into their hotel and found officers in the parking lot, gearing up to take on peaceful protestors with combat fatigues and weaponry. Naturally, the band knew they had to do something, and decided to donate half of the money raised from their show in Minneapolis, MN last night to Stand With Standing Rock.Guitarist Eddie Roberts tells the full story.“Tuesday night, on our long drive from Montana to Minneapolis, we found ourselves in a horrible situation. As we checked into our hotel for the night, we walked into a disturbing scene… a parking lot full of militarized police, head-to-toe in combat fatigues, loaded up with weapons, as they prepared for their next strike on Standing Rock’s peaceful protestors. The temperature was freezing, and the display of violent force was intimidating.Given the escalating violence of the last few days and our own experience, we (The New Mastersounds) have decided to donate half the money ‪from last night’s show to the Standing Rock Sioux.Our thoughts go out to the Standing Rock protestors on this Thanksgiving day.”You can find out more information about, and donate to, Stand with Standing Rock, by heading here.last_img read more

Record-breaking Mertens sends Napoli to Italian Cup final

However there was another bum note for Ospina after his best game for Napoli, as his late booking for time wasting means he will miss the final. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 According to Italian media, some 8.3 million people tuned into RAI to watch Friday’s goalless draw at Juve’s Allianz Stadium, the largest TV audience for a football match this season. They were immediately thrown into the action thanks to Eriksen, whose near-post cross from a corner flashed past a host of players and squirmed under a surprised David Ospina in the Napoli goal. Inter then dominated for long stretches of the first half, and should have gone two ahead on the night seconds before Mertens struck when Antonio Candreva opted to shoot, forcing a good save from Ospina, with three teammates ready for a pass in the box. Ospina was then crucial to Napoli going ahead in the tie, as it was his quick pass which sent Insigne scurrying towards the Inter area. The Italy international drew defenders towards him before releasing a perfect pass for Mertens, who stroked home first time under Samir Handanovic. Ospina kept a powerful Inter side at bay with some super goalkeeping to make up for his early blunder, the Colombian making two excellent stops from Eriksen in five minutes towards the end.

Dries Mertens slots home his 122nd Napoli goal to become the club’s all-time top goalscorer Napoli will face Juventus in Wednesday’s final in Rome thanks to Belgium forward Mertens, who slotted home his 122nd goal for Napoli four minutes before half-time to make the score 1-1 on the night and give them overall victory after a 1-0 first-leg win at the San Siro in February. Christian Eriksen had levelled the tie for Inter straight from a corner in the second minute and the away side continued to dominate the first half, but Mertens ended a lightning counter-attack to put the hosts through at the Stadio San Paolo. “We wanted the final at all costs and we achieved that. Now we need to recuperate and be ready for the final in a few days,” said Lorenzo Insigne, who set up Merten’s winner. Mertens, 33, overtakes Marek Hamsik and moves seven clear of Diego Maradona, who scored 115 goals in all competitions and won two Serie A titles and the UEFA Cup over his seven tumultuous years in southern Italy. Although there were no fans in the stands at the San Paolo, public broadcaster RAI reported that a small number of Napoli supporters that had gathered outside the San Paolo set off fireworks throughout half-time in celebration of Merten’s goal and after the match. Mertens moved to Napoli from PSV Eindhoven in 2013 and has become so settled in Naples that fans have nicknamed him ‘Ciro’, a hugely common Neapolitan name. Sporting director Christian Giuntoli said pre-match that both club and player want to extend his contract, set to expire at the end of the month. Napoli will take on Juve at the Italian capital’s Stadio Olimpico after Maurizio Sarri’s side squeezed past AC Milan on away goals following a 0-0 draw in Turin on Friday, Italy’s first competitive football match since the country become the global coronavirus epicentre. – Ospina fends off Inter – As with Friday’s match, Napoli and Inter players gathered around the centre circle for a minute’s silence in tribute to the more than 34,000 people who have died in Italy as a result of COVID-19. There will likely be a big television audience for two of Italy’s best-supported clubs.last_img read more
