The Revivalists Heat Things Up For A Sold Out Performance In Sacramento [Review]

first_imgThe Revivalists have gained notoriety playing every corner of the festival circuit the past decade, but – like most acts – the details of their instrumentation really shine at a club or indoor venue.That was the case Wednesday night, February 15th, with the New Orleans collective closing the California leg of their “Still Feeling Good From Yesterday” Tour with a sold out show at Harlow’s Nightclub in Sacramento.It was an intimate scene, the type that energizes musicians and spoils fans. The Revivalists opened with “Keep Going” and, to the band’s surprise, they were met with a crowd of true fans that wanted to see them, specifically, as opposed to simply catching some live music on a weeknight.It was a powerful performance that leaned on Men Amongst Mountains, and effortlessly navigated the emotions of that project. Whether it was the somber brass highways of “Fade Away” or the skyrocketing hills of “Stand Up,” The Revivalists steadily loosened up the dance floor with every song.The set was all-encapsulating and left little to be desired. From “Soul’s Too Loud” to the pedal steel guitar grooves of “Upright,” every member of the six-piece ensemble got to shine at some point, although saxophonist Rob Ingraham’s soul-shaking additions were the easiest to get lost in.“Sunny Days” was the most impressive progression of the night, turning a soft, reggae bounce into The Revivalists’ trademarked blend of pounding alternative and bellowing vocals from frontman David Shaw. The jam picked up steam, intensified the tempo and was driven home by a hair-raising solo from guitarist Zack Feinberg, which was met by a lion’s roar of approval from the crowd.In a lot of ways, The Revivalists are a natural fit for the Central Valley music scene. Alternative rock thrives in Sacramento, and adding a little Cajun spice to the mix is a welcome move in the heartland of Northern California. Togetherness through personal independence is a message that comes through the band’s music, and it’s true to the area’s culture.The Revivalists were welcomed back for an encore, which featured their most popular song, “Wish I Knew You.” As phones scattered the space above the crowd, so did the man with the two bubble guns, who got a shout out from Ingraham at the end of the show as he emptied his clip to the tune of a yearning sing-a-long.So, thank you linebacker-sized bubble man, for reminding us of the simpler things in stranger times.[Photo via Christopher Baldwin in San Francisco]last_img read more

Gerontology Club provides companionship to older adults in South Bend

first_imgGerontology Club, a service-based club at Saint Mary’s, works to provide older adults with companionship.In an effort to give back to the greater South Bend community, Gerontology Club members volunteer at Healthwin Specialized Care Facility, a nursing home close to the College’s campus.Katie Jackson, a junior and vice president of the Gerontology Club, said their mission is to improve the lives of seniors in the area.Gerontology Club hosts weekly volunteer events in addition to larger, less-frequent events. Jackson said the weekly visits consist of activities ranging from sharing a meal with the residents, playing Bingo or giving manicures to simply having conversations with the residents.A popular weekly activity is assisting with the music and memory program, Jackson said.“Each of the residents in the dementia ward has an assigned iPod,” she said. ‘You can check out an iPod and listen to music with them. This helps them reminisce and unlock memories that they wouldn’t have access to normally.”The annual events include a senior prom, a night dedicated to dressing up and community building and Valentine’s Day card making. Additionally, the club hosts annual holiday parties at the nursing home for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.The events have a positive impact on both volunteers and residents alike, Jackson said.“I love knowing that I’m making a difference in these people’s lives like some don’t really get too many visitors,” Jackson said. “Everyone needs human contact, so it’s really nice to be able to provide that for somebody.”While the club is open to students of all majors, Jackson sees a large draw from communicative sciences and disorders, nursing and psychology majors. The club is designed to support the gerontology minor, Jackson said.Katherine Weese, a senior and the treasurer of Gerontology Club, said she wants to increase awareness and participation of the group.“My goal for the year is to have more people commit some more hours during the year and have more people go there,” she said.There is no minimum time commitment to be involved with the club. An hour requirement has been discussed and may be implemented in the future, Weese said.“For the time being, we like to have it not as strict and committal so that people aren’t scared off from joining or things like that,” she said.Students hoping to get involved with the club are encouraged to reach out to the club’s officers to get more information.“My favorite part of being involved with the club is spending time with the residents,” Weese said. “They’re so nice, and they always have great stories to tell.”Tags: Community Service, Gerontology Club, senior citizenslast_img read more
