Jamtronica titans The Disco Biscuits have added three new dates to their calendar, scheduling a three-night run at The Fillmore Philadelphia from February 2nd through the 4th.

Their annual Dominican Holidaze event is coming up at the beginning of December, as well as three nights at the Tabernacle in Atlanta for New Year’s. The hometown shows at the new Philly venue are sure to bring some heat during the coldest part of the year.Three day passes will go on sale via BiscoTix Today tomorrow, November 15th, at Noon ET.

RelatedPosts EPL: Foxes attack Burnley EPL: Vardy primed for another prolific season after brace at West Brom EPL: Underdogs tackle Leicester City Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers was full of praise for match-winner Kelechi Iheanacho after his goal booked their place in the FA Cup fifth round. The Foxes kept their hopes of a cup double alive as the Nigerian scored the only goal of the game in the fourth minute at Brentford. Leicester were missing top goalscorer Jamie Vardy at Griffin Park due to a glute injury suffered in Wednesday’s win over West Ham, but Iheanacho filled the void impressively and scored his seventh goal of the season. Rodgers said: “For Kels, he is getting better and better. He is so efficient now in his game. He is working so hard. He creates goals, he scores goals and I am delighted for him.” Rodgers said Vardy was “responding well to the treatment”, but the manager was still unsure whether the striker would be fit for Tuesday’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg against Aston Villa, where a win will send his side to Wembley. Rodgers added: “He was really sore after the (West Ham) game, but that has eased up after the last day or so. We will find out (if he can play on Tuesday) tomorrow when we are in.” With Leicester on course to quality for the Champions League, alongside their cup exploits, they are on course for a memorable campaign, but Rodgers warned there was still plenty of hard work ahead. The Northern Irishman said: “Every club has priorities but, for us, what we’ve hopefully shown is we want to do as well as we possibly can in every competition we’re in. “We have the semi-final on Tuesday. We are into the fifth round of the FA Cup and in a really healthy position in the league, but we know we have a lot of work to do. “The assessment is at the end of the season. Let’s see where we finish, but up until that point we have to fight and run and do the very best we can.” The Leicester manager also confirmed defender Filip Benkovic was set to leave the club on loan this month, but only if the Foxes can secure the services of a centre-back. Brentford head coach Thomas Frank was proud of his young team, which included six players aged 20 or below. The Bees, who made nine chances, will host Championship rivals Nottingham Forest on Tuesday in a crucial match in the battle for promotion. “Of course the Tuesday game is more important, but we wanted to win both games,” Frank said. “A lot of players did well. It is difficult to praise some in front of others because more of less everybody played to a seven or eight out of 10.”— Tags: BrentfordFA CupJamie VardyKelechi IheanachoLeicester City
DES MOINES — As dozens of Iowans die every year from opioid overdoses, the state is sponsoring a new initiative offering every law officer in the state a free two-pack naloxone kit.Kevin Gabbert, the state health department’s opioid treatment program director, says the kits are easy to use and they’re genuine life-savers. “This nasal spray can be used to provide naloxone to the person and it’s something that’s done through the nose,” Gabbert says, “and the intent is that it will reverse the opioid overdose that’s occurring and allow time until medical care can be provided.”Gabbert says if the spray is used on someone who is -not- having an overdose, there are no ill effects. In 2017, there were 206 opioid-involved deaths in Iowa. Preliminary data for 2018 shows that number has dropped to 137. Until those numbers drop to zero, Gabbert says it’s important that our police officers, sheriff’s deputies, state troopers and others are prepared.“Quite often, our law enforcement personnel are the first to a scene when a suspected overdose has occurred,” Gabbert says. “Having the ability to administer naloxone without delay could mean the difference between life and death. In some cases, it may actually be the law enforcement officer whose life is in danger because of accidental exposure to an opioid or suspected opioid.”There are about 6,000 law officers in the state and it’s unclear how many individuals or departments may request the kits. The state is planning to make one large purchase, at a discount. “Typically, if a person were to go to a pharmacy and purchase the two-pack Narcan kit that we’re providing, it would be about $150,” Gabbert says. “We’re able to purchase it directly from the manufacturer and obtain what they call ‘public interest pricing,’ and so we can get it for $75 for the same two-pack kit.”The program is being sponsored by the Iowa Department of Public Health, with support from the Iowa State Sheriffs’ and Deputies’ Association and the Iowa Police Chiefs Association. Law agencies can request the free kits by calling the IDPH at 515-281-7689.
