Tedeschi Trucks Band has been on a roll this summer, capitalizing on their Wheels of Soul tour to collaborate with some very special guests on a nightly basis. With North Mississippi Allstars and Los Lobos performing at each show as support, members of both bands – including Luther Dickinson, David Hidalgo and more – continue to find a home within the magic of Tedeschi Trucks Band. Last night’s stop at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Alpharetta, GA took that to a new level, as even more special guests joined in the fray.The first was the legendary Col. Bruce Hampton, who came out for a cover of the blues standard “Spoonful” with Luther Dickinson. Dickinson stayed on stage, and lent his hand to “Leaving Trunk” and “Midnight In Harlem.” Perhaps the biggest surprise was the appearance of Jimmy Herring, as the Widespread Panic guitarist linked up with Tedeschi Trucks for a version of Doyle Bramhall’s song, “I Want More.” The crowd was in utter appreciation of the musical fusion, and the guest appearances weren’t over! David Hidalgo, Cody Dickinson, and Steve Berlin all added their talents to “The Storm” to close the set. Luther Dickinson also rejoined one last time, adding some guitar to the fitting choice cover of The Beatles’ “With A Little Help From My Friends.”With all of that love from the music community, this was surely a great musical experience. Fortunately we can relive it from home, as taper Dillon Fries has provided a full audio recording of the set.

ILOILO City – Tomorrow, Sept. 29, isPresident Rodrigo Duterte’s deadline for local government units to reclaimpublic roads being used for private ends. However, according to the Departmentof Interior and Local Government (DILG) Region 6, road clearing operationsshould be sustained to ensure no obstructions would make a return to publicroads and sidewalks. “Kasiif iwanan ito ng mga local officials,ang tendency babalik itong mga na-clear natin.Ang mga sidewalk vendors, pag wala tayong monitoring, ang tendency magbagablik,” said Iglesia. DILG also reminded all city andmunicipal mayors that they have the power to discipline village chiefs who arenegligent or uncooperative in the clearing efforts. In a statement yesterday, DILG’scentral office in Metro Manila announced its teams will be visiting localgovernment units (LGUs) for an assessment of their compliance. “It doesn’t mean tapos na ang roadclearing after the deadline. This is a continuing responsibility of all thelocal officials down to the barangay level. Itotalaga ‘yung trabaho,” said Director Ariel Iglesia. He also reminded local officials toprohibit illegal parking on public roads. In fact, said Iglesia, the President’sroad clearing order was just a reiteration of existing laws, rules andregulations that local government officials should have been enforcing. “Under the Local Government Code, youare the primary disciplining authority over your Punong Barangays, therefore,we urge you to utilize your powers – without fear or favor – whenever necessaryand make them accountable for their performance,” the DILG said./PN “Those who are found to benon-compliant will be issued show cause orders by (DILG) Secretary (Eduardo)Año before their names are submitted to the President,” according to the DILG. “We will form a team to validate theroad clearing after the deadline. Members will be from the Bureau of FireProtection, Philippine National Police, civil society organizations, and DILG,”said Iglesia. The department earlier warned thatlocal officials who fail to comply with the president’s directive would facesanctions ranging from a reprimand, suspension, to dismissal from the service.
