Turbo Suit, Formerly Known As Cosby Sweater, Calls It Quits

first_imgAfter four years of touring the country, playing a ton of festivals, and supporting some of the biggest acts in the jam/livetronica scene, Turbo Suit (formerly known as Cosby Sweater) is calling it quits. The Indianapolis, IN-based trio, made up David Embry (guitar/vocals/live mixing), Nicholas Gerlach (sax/EWI/keys) and Jeff Peterson (drums), with the “sensual sax melodies and ultra-accessible beats” has decided to part ways. They have announced their appearance at Electric Forest will be the group’s final performance. We wish each member the best of luck in their future endeavors.  Here is a statement the band released via their Facebook page:Over the last 4 years, we have had the opportunity to do some amazing things. We started this project with no intentions of ever going as far as we did with our little group. We’ve played countless festivals, venues that we could only dream of playing, and have opened for bands that we’ve looked up to for years. We made lots of friends and fans over the years and are so grateful for all the opportunities that we were given to make you forget about this crazy world we live in, even if for just an hour or two.Without going on and on and dragging this whole thing out, we would like to announce that next week at Electric Forest will be our last show. So please, let us not be sad that this is ending, but celebrate that it even happened in the first place. Thank you guys so much for letting us do what we do. We love you.Turbo Suit – Asheville Music Hall – 2/6/16, courtesy of I Am Asheville:last_img read more

Liverpool keeper Karius suffered concussion

first_imgLondon, June 5: Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius suffered a concussion during the UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid, doctors who treated the German five days after the match at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston said.“After carefully reviewing game footage and integrating a detailed history — including his reported present and immediate post-contact subjective symptoms — physical examinations and objective metrics, we have concluded that Karius sustained a concussion during the match,” Dr. Ross Zafonte and Lenore Herget said in a statement on Monday.The German goalkeeper was at fault in two of Real Madrid’s three goals during Liverpool’s 1-3 loss in Kiev.“Karius’s principal residual symptoms and objective signs suggested that visual spatial dysfunction existed and likely occurred immediately following the event. Additional symptomatic and objectively noted areas of dysfunction also persisted. It could be possible that such deficits would affect performance,” the statement added, but did not specify when Karius suffered the concussion. IANSlast_img read more
