On Friday night, during a late-night Resonance Fest performance at Legend Valley in Thorville, OH, progressive jam rockers Dopapod took on a special tribute to Pink Floyd for those in attendance. The set featured truly old-school tracks such as “Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave And Grooving With A Pict” from 1969’s Ummagumma, along with “Bike” from Piper At The Gates of Dawn (1967), and “Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun” from A Saucerful of Secrets (1968).Classics like “Echoes”, “Welcome To The Machine”, a set-closing “Run Like Hell” rounded out the performance nicely. The show also marked Dopapod’s first since reuniting with former drummer Neal “Fro” Evans, getting fans excited for future shows with the funky drummer ahead.Check out full audio of the performance, courtesy of taper Douglas Zupan:Dopapod is hitting the road hard next month with Pigeons Playing Ping Pong.

By Martyn HermanLONDON, England (Reuters) – Former Romanian tennis player Ilie Nastase will not be welcomed at this year’s Wimbledon championships and could be stopped at the gate if he tries to attend, organisers said yesterday.The 70-year-old former French and U.S. Open champion is provisionally banned from all International Tennis Federation (ITF) events after hurling allegedly racist and sexist comments during Romania’s Fed Cup tie with Britain last month.All England Club chairman Philip Brook said he “condemned” the behaviour of two-time Wimbledon runner-up Nastase.“In terms of an invitation to the Royal Box, he won’t receive one this year,” Brook said at the club’s spring news conference.Club chief executive Richard Lewis went further, saying Nastase “could be stopped at the gate” if he tried to enter the grounds with a ticket.Romanian Fed Cup captain Nastase, who courted controversy throughout his career, was booted out of his country’s tie with Britain for “unsportsmanlike” behaviour.The singles rubber between Britain’s Johanna Konta and Sorana Cirstea was briefly suspended after remarks made by Nastase to Konta and Britain’s captain Anne Keothavong.Nastase had already run into trouble during the World Group II playoff tie in Constanta, after allegedly making a derogatory comment about American great Serena Williams’ unborn child.
