D.J. Williams is performing a surprise homecoming show next Wednesday, June 14th, following his arrival home to the United States, with his solo group D. J. Williams’ Shots Fired — an all-star collective of funk musicians from across the scene. The celebration, dubbed “D.J.’s Deportation Celebration – a Welcome Home Party,” follows Williams’ detainment in the Middle East, which saw the guitarist of Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe held over an issue at customs, and his subsequent release back to the United States.Slated for Interscope Records’ showcase room, The Peppermint Club, in West Hollywood, the night is sure to be a jubilant welcoming party for those who missed the musician while he was away. For D.J.’s Deportation Celebration, Williams will be joined by Rashawn Ross (Dave Matthews Band), Max MacVeety (Lyrics Born), Pete Griffin (Dr. John), David Veith (Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe) and Kenneth Crouch (Eric Clapton/Lenny Kravitz). In a statement, Williams said, “It’s been a hell of a ride to get here, but I’m back and ready to rage with my Shots Fired crew once again!” Tickets for this intimate, limited-space show at The Peppermint are on-sale now, with advanced ticket purchases encouraged. You can get tickets here.

There are a couple of credit unions that we still have not received a list from on the number of employees affected and whether their homes have been damaged by the flood.”From Aug. 8 to Aug. 14, more than 2.5 feet of rain deluged parts of the state in what the American Red Cross called the worst U.S. disaster since Superstorm Sandy in 2012. About 13 people died in the flood and more than 60,000 homes were damaged, according to national media reports. continue reading »

More than 7,000 people are expected to gather at three different protest marches against water charges across Co Donegal tomorrow.The biggest of the protest rallies will be in Letterkenny where organisers expect an estimated 5,000 to take to the streets of the county’s biggest town.Marchers will gather at the Port Roundabout at 2pm before walking up the town’s Main Street before a number of speakers will address the crowd at Market Square. A slightly smaller crowd is expected in Ballyshannon where a rally will start at the Abbey Centre at 2pm before protesting through the town.A large crowd is also expected in the border town of Lifford for the third and final protest which also starts at 2pm.Mayor of Donegal, Cllr John Campbell as well as councillors Micheal Mac Giolla Easbuig and Gary Doherty have appealed to people to take to the streets to make their voices heard.Why I’ll be marching tomorrow – by Corinna McCallig, from Ardara. Corrina McCallig“I am marching in Letterkenny tomorrow for one reason only – because most people can’t afford it. People forget that the Celtic Tiger by-passed Donegal apart from a few small pockets. We have four children and we can’t afford it. I have talked to women about this and they cry because they can hardly put food on their tables for their children nevermind find another €600. I am one of the lucky ones in that my husband now has a job. But he was unemployed for three months and we were hardly able to make ends meet. I am marching because I know in my heart of hearts that Irish Water is going to be privatised. We can’t let that happen. We have to stand up to the Government on this issue. As I speak I am looking outside my window because I know Irish Water are calling to my house in the next few days to install water meters. I will physically stop them from doing that. I will never pay for water because I feel we are already paying for it. That is why I am marching in Letterkenny and I would ask for as many people to join us as possible. We have to stand together on this issue.”(As told to Donegal Daily) MORE THAN 7,000 PEOPLE EXPECTED TO ATTEND THREE WATER PROTEST MARCHES ACROSS DONEGAL was last modified: October 31st, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BallyshannondonegalIrish WaterletterkennyLiffordwater charges
