Umphrey’s McGee’s own Brendan Bayliss took to the intimate Tonic Room in his hometown Chicago, IL, for a solo acoustic performance for the ages. Playing some beloved Umphrey’s tunes and some fan-favorite covers, Bayliss played through two staggering sets of music.Covers from the show included Ween’s “Baby Bitch,” Dave Matthews Band’s “Pay For What You Get,” Paul Simon’s “Under African Skies,” a mash-up of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire” with UM’s “Puppet String” and more! He even called on vocalist Michele Hallman for some powerful vocals throughout the performance.Check out the setlist and videos below: Setlist:Set One: Similar Skin, Puppet String > I’m On Fire  > Puppet String, Cut The Cable, Alex’s House, Backbone , Wellwishers, August > Lyrical Stew > August, 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover , No Diablo , HourglassSet Two: You And You Alone, Circle , Under African Skies , No Comment > Upward, Pay For What You Get , Nemo > Ocean Billy > Nemo, Passing, Susannah , Final Word, Baby Bitch , Debra, Two DipsEncore: Liar  > Hajimemashite1.

Added Councilor Stephen J. Murphy, chairman of the Public Safety Committee, “Given the amount of staffing we have and the amount of resources we commit, it’s unacceptable.” The paper reported that a 911 operator mistakenly told a dispatcher that an April 20 robbery was not a high priority because the suspect had fled. Cops arrived 35 minutes after the 911 call and found a 76-year-old victim bleeding from his head in Hyde Park. Ann Scales, spokeswoman for Boston EMS, said EMTs were en route as soon as the dispatcher was told of the severity. BOSTON — An ambulance did not arrive until more than 12 minutes after Boston EMS was notified of an emergency at a Mattapan apartment where a baby was shot Monday night double the average response time which city councilors blasted as “unacceptable.” Two cops found the baby on the living room floor after she was shot Monday night in her midsection by a bullet that passed through Alinson Peguero’s hand. With no ambulance on the scene, cops drove the baby to Carney Hospital in a cruiser. A print-out of the electronic call log that night indicates the EMS dispatcher was still asking whether an ambulance was needed more than three minutes after the call-taker entered the words “STS DAUGHTER DYING” into the system and after the call-taker indicated the injured child, Alianna Peguero, was six months old. “If this is happening systematically, we may be putting people in jeopardy of losing their lives,” said Councilor Charles C. Yancey, who represents Mattapan. EMTs arrived at 8:49 p.m., more than 12 minutes after EMS was notified – and fully 14 minutes and 31 seconds after the initial 911 call. Alianna Peguero remained in critical but stable condition last night after being shot while in her father’s arms, said BPD spokeswoman Elaine Driscoll. It was not dispatched until several minutes after EMS was notified about an assault and battery in progress, according to a log obtained by the Herald. The average Boston EMS response time for a priority 1 call is 6.1 minutes, Scales said. In May, officials vowed to retrain 911 dispatchers and call-takers after a series of reports by the Boston Globe on delayed responses to emergencies. “We responded appropriately, as did police,” Scales said. “The scene was very confusing. We were trying to sift through conflicting information. When we realized it was a priority call, we immediately went to the scene.” He also admitted the dispatcher probably missed some of the details being provided by the call-taker. “It suggests we missed some of the supplements,” the official said, referring to additional information entered by the call-taker. One veteran EMS official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the EMS dispatcher was dealing with a dizzying array of tasks: about 20 other calls and a busy radio during a thunderstorm. The closest ambulance, meanwhile, was driving from Carney Hospital to the shooting scene at 70 Fairlawn Ave.
Playing their third game in four nights in Western Canada, the weary Washington Capitals relied heavily on some timely scoring plays and their goaltender, Braden Holtby, to defeat the Winnipeg Jets, 3-2. It was the Caps third straight victory to finish their four game road trip after an opening loss in Edmonton last Wednesday. The win improves their overall record to 6-2-1 (13 points).The Caps likely lose this game if not for the Holtbeast, who stopped 43 shots. Washington scored the game’s first two goals. Karl Alzner notched his 2nd marker of the season with a sweet shot from the top of the slot after Brett Connolly made a great hit in the corner to force a Winnipeg turnover. After #10’s super forecheck, Evgeny Kuznetsov (two assists) alertly grabbed the biscuit and swung it to Marcus “Red Hot” Johansson (1 goal, 1 assist), who then found Alzner all alone. King Karl put it precisely in the right top corner to give the Caps a 1-0 lead with 19:16 gone in period one.Washington would double their lead in the middle frame, again as a result of a forced turnover. Johansson stripped the Jets of the puck in the neutral zone and fed Kuznetsov, who streaked down the left wing boards. Tom Wilson smartly made a bee line for the left side of the net and all of the Jets defenders went towards him thinking that Kuzy was going to try one of his patented no look, behind the back passes. To quote the great Ron White, “They were wrong!” and Kuzy carried around the cage and fed an all alone Jojo in the slot. #90 buried it at 8:15 of the middle stanza for his 6th goal of the season and his team leading 11th point.From there the game went back and forth with the Jets firing a lot of pucks from the outside. Holtby did have to make a huge save on one sequence after Dmitry Orlov was beaten (again) on defense and then T.J. Oshie somehow played second goalie to keep the disc from crossing the red line. After that the Caps did a good job of holding the Jets to perimeter shots through 40 minutes.But in the final stanza, the Capitals legs grew fatigued and they started reaching instead of moving their feet to play defense. The Caps were still up 2-0 with 10 minutes to go and per Mike Vogel (@VogsCaps) the team was 71-1-6 under Coach Barry Trotz when leading at that point in the game.Things were looking good; especially after Oshie hustled to draw a trip and take the Jets off of a power play. Shortly thereafter though, Nate Schmidt got outmuscled in a four on four situation and Alzner went down to block a pass putting himself out of position for a Jets rebound and the subsequent goal at the 13:04 mark.No problem still, right? Well, not so fast. Washington was fading and when Brooks Orpik missed a hit on the right wing boards and John Carlson made a bad decision to try and hit Joel Armia, the puck was passed easily to Adam Lowry all alone in front of Holtby. He then deked the pride of Saskatchewan to the ice and deposited the biscuit in the basket to tie the game up with 2:25 left.At that point, overtime seemed imminent, but Washington forced an offensive zone draw and Coach Trotz had Jay Beagle take the faceoff. Beags won the draw back to Carlson and then fought his way towards the net. Carlson’s point shot found #83 in front and he backhanded it past Connor Hellebucyk for the win with just 30 ticks remaining.It was a huge goal and the first of the season for the Regal Beagle.This was not one of the Capitals better performances, but that’s to be expected given the travel and schedule. They needed a top game from their all world goalie and they received it. In addition, there are several guys who are in the groove offensively, such as Oshie, Johansson, Beagle, and Kuznetsov and the Caps rode them to victory.The line of Johansson, Kuznetsov, and Wilson has been really strong as has been the Andre Burakovsky, Lars Eller, and Oshie unit. Nicklas Backstrom, Alex Ovechkin, and Justin Williams continue to try and find chemistry, but given how well the other three lines, to include Beagle, Connolly, and Zach Sanford are playing, Coach Trotz likely needs to let those stars work their way through it.On defense, the Alzner and Matt Niskanen pair has been excellent. Carlson and Orlov have not been a duo you can wager your cash on so far this season and I put most of that on #9. He’s still deficient too often in his own zone. Orpik and Schmidt form a decent third pair since #88 is good at rushing the puck and #44 is sound defensively, but both made mistakes on the Jets goals in this one. Simply put, one has to think that GM Brian MacLellan is looking at potential defensemen to bring in in the event that things don’t improve on the back end.Let’s be honest, this team has a strong group of 13 forwards with the additions of Eller, Connolly, and Sanford, but the defense, which let them down when suspensions and injuries hit last spring is still a big question mark.On Tuesday night in Winnipeg, however, the Caps were fortunate to have one of the game’s best goalies deliver them the two points.Long live the Holtbeast!Notes: Shot attempts were 61-48 for Winnipeg and shots on goal were 45-27…Niskanen led the Caps in ice time with 23:50…Ovechkin had 12 shot attempts, but only three made it on net…the Caps did dominate from the dot and that was key in the victory, going 37-28. Beagle and Backstrom were both 10-5…Connolly led the Capitals in hits with four and he was one of the best Washington players in this one…the Caps and Winnipeg will play again in their final meeting of the season on Thursday night at the Verizon Center.
