LCD Soundsystem Announces Two-Nights At Red Rocks Amphitheatre

first_imgIt seems the LCD Soundsystem reunion tour is in full swing! After reuniting on Easter Sunday for their first show in five years, the band has added two more dates: August 2nd and 3rd at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO. The group will be joined by Savages and Museum of Love, putting together two glorious nights of music for all involved.LCD just wrapped up a two night run at NYC’s Webster Hall, where the group came out in full force. The “warm-up” performances saw the band dive through a number of their older hits, including tracks like “Daft Punk Is Playing At My House,” “I Can Change” and more. While the band has said that they’re working on new music, fans only have their lethargic Christmas song as evidence of new work.Still, with performances scheduled for major festivals like Bonnaroo, Coachella, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury and more, there’s plenty of opportunities to see LCD Soundsystem at work.Check out the event poster for their newly-announced two-night Red Rocks run, and tickets can be found here. They go on sale this Friday, April 1st, at 10 AM.last_img read more

Mexico Arrests Man Responsible for “Chapo” Guzmán’s Operations in Central America

first_img An individual responsible for transporting drugs from Central America to Mexico for the cartel led by Mexican drug boss Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán was detained in the southern part of the Mexican capital, the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena) announced. The Mexican José Carlos Moreno Flores, alias “La Calentura” (“The Fever”), who according to Sedena was working with Guzmán’s organization in the state of Guerrero (in southern Mexico), is suspected of maintaining contacts with “Costa Rican and Guatemalan drug traffickers for the transport of alkaloids” to that Mexican region, the agency indicated. From Guerrero, on the Pacific coast, Moreno Flores sent the drugs to “the United States, using various routes and means of transportation,” the defense secretariat added. “El Chapo” Guzmán, a fugitive since 2001 and head of the Sinaloa cartel, is considered the most powerful Mexican drug trafficker by the U.S. magazine Forbes. Moreno Flores was also “one of those chiefly responsible for the violence generated in Chilpancingo (the capital of Guerrero, 300 km from Mexico City), where he was waging a battle for control of the drug trade with an enemy group known as ‘Los Rojos’ (‘The Reds’),” the Sedena statement indicated. Guerrero, which includes the port of Acapulco, is one of the battlefields in the wars between drug traffickers and anti-cartel agents that have left more than 41,000 dead since December 2006, when President Felipe Calderón orchestrated a national anti-drug strategy with the participation of 50,000 military personnel.
