Late Night FDL: Amused to Death

Roger Waters – Amused To Death

Roger will be headlining this year’s Newport Folk Festival…

Roger Waters will headline the opening night of the 2015 Newport Folk Festival on Friday, July 24. Waters says he plans to deliver “an intimate appearance specifically crafted” for the event, set for July 24-26 at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, RI.

The former Pink Floyd bassist will top a bill that includes Tallest Man On Earth, Iron & Wine and Ben Bridwell, the Watkins Family Hour and others, while The Decemberists will perform on Saturday and First Aid Kit will play on Sunday.

Founded in 1959, the festival features a variety of musical genres each year, and has notably introduced Joan Baez and Bob Dylan to a wider audience. Dylan’s famous July 25, 1965 appearance caused an uproar when fans booed as the acoustic folk singer went electric with Mike Bloomfield on guitar alongside players from the Paul Butterfield Blues Band.

I’m back to slinging hash tonite…! Be nice to one another…!

    Is there any tech-type out there who can tell me: Does ABP stop ads from loading or does it only block them from being seen/viewed?

    not a tech type but i think it blocks them period… they don’t load and therefore can not be seen/viewed. they have some faq’s on their about page including info on using abp to block malware and tracking https://adblockplus.org/en/about
