GOV’T MULE

with special guest Black Stone Cherry

April 19, 2018 @ 7:30pm

Warner Theatre

Today, preeminent American rock band Gov’t Mule have announced their Spring Tour 2018.  Comprised of 13 dates, the headline tour kicks off on April 18th in Bethlehem, PA and will take the band to major cities along the east coast before heading south for their always-anticipated show during Jazz Fest at the Saenger Theatre in New Orleans. Pre-sale for these dates will begin Wednesday, February 7th at 12pm EST and will go on-sale Friday, February 9th at 10am local time. Full tour routing below. Please visit www.Mule.net for ticketing details.

Gov’t Mule is touring behind the release of their acclaimed 10th studio album Revolution Come… Revolution Go [Fantasy Records]. PRESS HERE to listen. Spanning rock, blues, soul, jazz and country, the album won over fans and critics alike and, upon its release, shot up the rock charts, racked up over 1.5 million streams, and nabbed the band their highest-selling debut week ever. Their most diverse offering to date, Revolution Come…Revolution Go showcases the band’s evocative songwriting, incendiary playing, cleverly-crafted songs and timely lyrical commentary. While Gov’t Mule‘s storytelling has always been inspired in part by American struggles and experiences, Revolution Come… Revolution Go finds the band’s finger directly on the pulse of our very divided political climate. The band began recording the album on Election Day 2016, and the songs continue to be more timely than ever, poignantly capturing the tension and emotions felt by Americans regardless of political affiliation. These lyrical observations are threaded together with a resounding message of unity.

Gov’t Mule – GRAMMY® Award-winning vocalist, songwriter, guitar legend Warren Haynes [vocals, guitar], Matt Abts [drums], Danny Louis [keyboards, guitar, and backing vocals], and Jorgen Carlsson [bass] – has galvanized a global fan base with their music and improvisational virtuosity, leading them to be recognized as one of the most timeless, revered and active bands in the world whose spot amongst rock titans remains unshakable.

PRESS HERE to watch the band perform a powerful rendition of “Stone Cold Rage” from the album on Conan.

PRESS HERE to listen to the band play songs from the album on NPR’s World Café Live.

Tickets go on sale Friday, February 9 @ 10:00am.

Adam Savage and Michael Stevens are master explainers, bringing along their crazy toys, incredible tools and mind-blowing demonstrations for a celebration of curiosity that literally has audiences shouting “more” after their favorites. Audiences are engaged and enthusiastic test subjects and participants as they spend two hours laughing, learning and exploring during a theatrical experience like no other. BRAIN CANDY LIVE! has been described as “A cross between TED Talks and Blue Man Group.”

Every night, Savage and Stevens literally can’t wait to unleash their collective sense of wonder, curiosity and fun for each new audience. They’re inviting everyone to join-in and get their minds messy as their demonstrations leap off the stage. Adam and Michaels’ BRAIN CANDY LIVE! experience is like a two hour play date with Walt Disney, Willy Wonka and Albert Einstein.

Join them as they use their secret recipe of fun, surprise, excitement (and just a pinch of danger) to cook-up and deliver an explosive batch of magical brain candy to every mind in the audience.

About Adam Savage

One of the most highly regarded and watched series on Discovery Channel, “MythBusters” ran for 14 earth-shattering years. Co-executive produced and co-hosted by Savage, the show mixed scientific method with problem solving gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to confirm or bust myths, popular misconceptions and creating its own signature style of explosive experimentation. Today, in addition to creating content for his website Tested.com, Adam has become a proponent for making, working with the White House to encourage kids and adults alike to get their hands dirty. He’s also a regular at conventions across the country, where his elaborate and hand-made costumes (Such as Totoro at New York Comic Con) attract much attention…. and hugs.

About Michael Stevens

Michael’s passion for learning, science and making curiosity contagious led him to create Vsauce in 2010. The YouTube channel captures attention with fun questions like, “What color is a mirror?” “Can you count past infinity?” and “Why are things creepy?” Now reaching a collective 17 million subscribers with video views in excess of 2 billion, Vsauce has grown into one of the largest educational networks on the web. Last ear, it received the Webby for Best Science and Education Network.

A Day in the Life: BCC Building and Grounds Superintendent

From the desk of Dave Yusz, Bayfront Convention Center Building and Grounds Superintendent:

What an exciting convention season! The National Fireworks Association held the 2017 NFA Expo at our facility in September. The event brought people to Erie from around the globe! Large conventions, such as these, have a lot of moving pieces, not only during the show, but before they arrive. Prior to their arrival, dates and times are determined, displays and goods are shipped in, room and floor layouts are detailed, food and beverage menues are selected, power/internet/telephony needs are determined, and staffing requirements are decided. When I stop and think about everything that happens between the booking of a convention to show day, I am truly in awe.

Facility maintenance and improvement are an ongoing part of this job. During convention season, the operations crew has to run three shifts to keep up. During the slower season, major projects are completed because there are less restrictions. This year, new ovens and other equipment were installed in the kitchen. Also, new carpet was installed in the ballroom along with replacing the lighting system to take advantage of energy savings. At times, keeping up with everything seems daunting, but I love the challenge!
