OH IT’S A HOT ONE: SantanaAt 71, Carlos Santana has a lot to celebrate. This summer marks the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, where Santana’s incendiary performance of Soul Sacrifice turned them into superstars. It’s the 20th anniversary of his album Supernatural, which no human being was allowed not to own in 1999. And he’s got a new album produced by Rick Rubin, Africa Speaks, coming out this summer. Expect a taste of all of this when he brings his Global Consciousness Tour to the unusual venue of Al Lang Stadium, 230 First Ave. S in St. Petersburg. It’s a splashy booking for a space the city has hoped will become a regular destination for midsize tours. And if the sunset hits right when Santana is uncorking one of his signature spirit-stirring solos, it’ll make for a memorable moment. $56 and up. 8 p.m. Thursday.

The torrent came without warning — and within minutes it was gone. But in those moments, just past noon on Jan. 15, 1919 when a storage tank containing 2.5 million gallons of molasses ruptured in Boston’s North End, it unleashed unimaginable devastation from which there was no escape. In what would become known as the “Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919,” the explosion of the massive container sent a “tidal wave of death and destruction stalking through North End Park and Commercial st.,” The Boston Globe reported at the time. The viscous flood was propelled by its sheer weight, traveling as quickly as 35 mph and forming a wave that estimated in different accounts to be between 15 and 50 feet high. The sea of molasses demolished six buildings in its path and knocked down a support for the nearby elevated rail line. People, horses, trucks, and homes were swept away. Twenty-one people were killed and about 150 injured. Six of them were city workers … [Read more...] about ‘There was no escape from the wave’: These are the 21 victims of the Great Boston Molasses Flood
Jamie Munks Memphis Commercial Appeal Published 12:04 PM EST Dec 19, 2018 MEMPHIS, Tenn. – After decades of being prominently displayed in parks here, years of being fiercely debated and a whirlwind overnight removal from their public perches a year ago, three Confederate monuments remain stashed away, their future unclear and their exact location unknown to most. Memphis is one of a number of cities that saw Confederate monuments come down from public spaces as cries for their removal reached a fever pitch in 2017. Some, like Baltimore, brought statues down in the days after deadly protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, in what officials described as public safety-motivated government action. "I think a lot of cities are struggling with what to do with them," said Colin Tarbert, Baltimore's deputy chief for strategic alliances. "A lot of people don't want to see them destroyed because some consider them pieces of art." The fate of the Confederate … [Read more...] about Confederate statues downed a year ago now sit in storage. What’s next?

It’s a warm day in late June, and a summer languor — or maybe it’s a news-cycle-induced torpor — is in the air, but Weems, perhaps our greatest living photographer, is juggling so many projects that when we were emailing to work out the interview logistics, she warned me, “We’ll need all your skills on this.” She is simultaneously working on a trio of … [Read more...] about How Carrie Mae Weems Rewrote the Rules of Image-Making
