Last weekend, the jam band moe. spent three glorious nights in the Big Apple. Starting off at the intimate Stage 48 before moving to the larger PlayStation Theater, this is a band that is playing in their prime. Between the Star Wars-inspired musicians, the guest stars, and just the band doing what they do best, it’s truly a treat to be a fan. Thanks to Paul Citone Photograhy, we have some great images from all three shows. Enjoy them below! For a full gallery of images from Paul Citone, see below: Load remaining images

“We’ve been very happy with how the horse has settled in, and trained,” said Ireland’s champion jumps trainer. “Lots of things have gone right for us, and the form is working out so we’re here now and we’re looking forward to it. “In the Northumberland Plate, he came from a really wide draw for second (behind Quest For More). “We thought that could win us the Lonsdale Cup, what we didn’t expect was how well he won it. “Then we decided that was our ticket to come across for the Melbourne Cup and we think everything has gone right.” After three near-misses, Ed Dunlop arguably has his best chance of claiming the prize when he saddles Red Cadeaux and Trip To Paris. Red Cadeaux attempts to improve on his incredible record of having finished second three times in the ‘race that stops a nation’. Runner-up in 2011, 2012 and last year, this will be the nine-year-old’s fifth successive appearance as he was eighth in 2013. Once again he will be an outsider for glory, while his stablemate will be one of the favourites after the Ascot Gold Cup hero produced an eyecatching second in the Caulfield Cup on his Australian debut Dunlop reports his duo to be going into the race in the form of their lives. “Trip To Paris has come out of the Caulfield Cup very well. Although you always want to win, it was a fantastic trial for the Melbourne Cup as we know that he will be better over further,” said the Newmarket trainer. “Red Cadeaux has made a big step forward. We sent him in as good a condition as we ever have and he loves the individual attention that he receives on his travels, he really seems to blossom for it. “He is now just £1,500 away from being the first British horse to earn £5million. While my staff deserve an enormous amount of credit for the fantastic job that they have done with him, so does his owner Ronnie Arculli, who is so often the forgotten man in all of this, for his bravery and patience.” Snow Sky was fifth in Caulfield Cup and his trainer Sir Michael Stoute feels his runner has plenty on his plate off top weight in such a competitive handicap. “My horse is a 122-rated horse in England and he probably won’t be good enough,” said the Newmarket handler. “I think he’s a very suitable horse – he’s got top-weight but he’s entitled to have that. “It’s a tough thing to do to carry the top-weight. ” I thought the (Caulfield Cup) run was OK, the race just didn’t go his way. When he should’ve been going forward, he couldn’t get rolling because he’s not an instant accelerator. “I thought it was satisfactory, but he’ll have to improve a bit.” The trainer is not concerned about starting from barrier 16. “I wouldn’t like to be too close to the inner or the outer, so I really can’t complain with that draw of 16,” he said. “I love the race, for years I’ve wanted to come and be competitive in it. “I think this horse will be competitive in it – he’s got a good shot.” Godolphin have tried in vain to win the Melbourne Cup for many years but trainer Saeed bin Suroor is quietly confident Sky Hunter can be the horse to give connections that elusive victory. “He’s fine now, he just needs some luck, as usual,” Bin Suroor told www.abc.net.au. “It’s very important for Sheik Mohammed, for UAE racing (to win the Cup). We have been here many, many times, three times we have come second, we are looking to win it this time.” Michael Bell is hoping Big Orange, who picked up a brace of Group Two victories in the Princess of Wales’s Stakes and Goodwood Cup can do himself justice. “He probably would not have got a bid as a yearling if he had gone to the sales as he has walked his box in the past so he would have been announced as a box walker,” said the Newmarket trainer. “He’s enormous and not particularly fashionably bred. “There are 23 opponents, we are drawn on the stands rail and that might be a good or a bad thing. “Who really knows. We are not confident but we are hopeful that he will perform with great credit.” “You couldn’t ask for two better jockeys to be on the horses in Brett (Prebble riding Bondi Beach) and Colm (O’Donoghue on Kingfisher). “The horses have adapted very well to the travel and they’re both in great form, I think they both have great chances. “The big thing is it’s a Melbourne Cup and we’ll need a lot of luck but we’re delighted to be here.” Owner Rich Ricci is delighted to have the chance of winning such a race with the versatile Max Dynamite, who followed up his second in the Galway Hurdle by winning the Lonsdale Cup on the Flat at York. “It’s very exciting. It’s an honour to have a horse in the Melbourne Cup – it may never happen again,” he said. “We’re hopeful. We’re not there for the laughs, we’re there to try and win or make a good show of ourselves. “He’s in great nick and I’m excited.” Trainer Willie Mullins is delighted with the way Max Dynamite’s condition has gone. Gold Cup runner-up Kingfisher and Ladbrokes St Leger second Bondi Beach represent Ballydoyle, with connections happy with both charges. “Kingfisher’s in great order and Aidan’s very happy with the horse, he’s got a good temperament and I think he’ll handle the big occasion,” said Ballyodyle representative Tom Magnier.

(BBC) – Arsenal’s David Luiz was sent off in a performance riddled with mistakes as Manchester City secured a comfortable victory behind closed doors on the first night of the Premier League’s return.Luiz, who came on as a first-half substitute, failed to clear the ball just before half-time and Raheem Sterling fired in City’s opener.The defender was then sent off after pulling back Riyad Mahrez in the second half to give away a penalty, which Kevin de Bruyne coolly slotted in for City’s second.Substitute Phil Foden netted a third for the defending champions, capitalising on a rebound from Sergio Aguero’s strike.There was concern for City late on as Eric Garcia needed several minutes of treatment on the pitch after a nasty collision with goalkeeper Ederson, and was carried off on a stretcher.Arsenal were second-best throughout as manager Mikel Arteta left Alexandre Lacazette on the bench and Mesut Ozil was kept out of the extended 20-man squad.There were bursts of energy from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Eddie Nketiah going forward in the first half but it was City who were more dangerous.De Bruyne, Sterling and David Silva were all denied by Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno, who produced an impressive display, but it seemed inevitable City would move ahead when Luiz’s mistake gifted Sterling a chance from close range.Victory for Pep Guardiola’s side means league leaders Liverpool remain six points away from winning the title – writing off any potential celebrations in Sunday’s Merseyside derby.On an evening in which thousands tuned in to watch a new-look Premier League on their TV screens, players from both clubs used their platform to support the Black Lives Matter movement for racial equality.All players and staff took a knee immediately before kick-off, mirroring the actions of those at Villa Park in the earlier match, and the words ‘Black Lives Matter’ replaced players’ names on the back of their shirts.After being left out of the starting line-up by Arteta, Luiz was handed his chance when he was brought on in the 23rd minute as Arsenal suffered their second injury of the match.Pablo Mari, making just his second Premier League start for the club, followed Granit Xhaka, who was taken off on a stretcher early on.But Luiz, prone to questionable decision-making, only confirmed his manager’s decision to leave him out initially had been for the best.Failure to clear the ball properly led to Sterling’s opener – the ball bouncing off Luiz’s knee from De Bruyne’s pass, landing straight into the path of the City forward.And Luiz completed a dreadful night four minutes into the second half when he tugged Mahrez’s shirt with no intention to play the ball, giving away a penalty and receiving a red card.De Bruyne reminds of his qualityFans were absent, players wore face masks in the dugout, there was enhanced crowd noise for television viewers and managers did post-match press conferences via Zoom.But some things remained the same. De Bruyne was the best player on the pitch.The Manchester City midfielder, widely regarded as one of the best in the business, reminded those watching at home of his quality with several intricate passes in the first half.He forced the first save of the match from Leno with a curling free-kick in the first three minutes and two of his defence-splitting passes again tested the keeper’s reactions half an hour later.It was ironic one of his poorer passes would lead to Sterling’s opener – helped by Luiz’s poor control – but De Bruyne stamped his mark on the game even further by scoring City’s second from the spot.He needed only 69 minutes to whet the appetite of those who feared football would not be the same on its return.Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, speaking to Sky Sports: “We are really concerned (about Eric Garcia). He responded quite well but we have to wait. He is conscious which is a good sign. We will make another test.“In the beginning it was a lot of energy. Everybody wanted the ball. It was not quiet. We had chances. It was important to score before halftime. I am happy with the performance of the team.”
