McLovins are gearing up for a tour-closing, headlining show at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory with Bronx psych-funk act The Lvnguage on Friday, November 24th. The band initially hit the scene back in 2008 with their viral cover of Phish‘s “You Enjoy Myself”, a rendition that was truly impressive considering that its members were between 14 and 16 years old at the time. Subsequently, McLovins quickly rose the ranks in the following years, earning fans with their solid performances highlighting their improvisational talents and eclectic musicality.Since their breakout success in 2008, a lot has changed for the Hartford, Connecticut-based act. The group has graduated college—with its members already in their mid-20’s—and has forged ahead full throttle with the project. Now, McLovins have begun to focus on their songwriting craft more so than ever. As the band moves into the second decade of their career, they are diverging from their jam beginnings and moving toward a quintessential rock n’ roll vibe.Tom Marshall Welcomes McLovin’s Jake Huffman On Latest Under The SkinOver the years, McLovins have worked closely with Phish lyricist Tom Marshall, collaborating on the track “Cohesive”. The band has also previously teamed up with Sesame Street musical director and Hamilton soundtrack producer Bill Sherman for 2015’s self-titled album (aka The Red Album). With plenty of buzz surrounding their upcoming tour closer, McLovins released their latest single “Anxious”, a melodic groove with a driving beat accented by drummer Jake Huffman‘s ever-improving vocals. Take a listen for yourself below.McLovins, “Anxious”[via McLovins]Coming out of the Boogie-Down Bronx, The Lvnguage is an indie-pop act with plenty of psychedelic grooves to grab the attention of even the most staunch of funk heads. With the release of their 2017 album, Movement, the quartet is quickly gaining a name for themselves in the New York music scene. Keep an ear out for The Lvnguage in the near future, as these guys undoubtedly have something special going on.

Legionnaires’ Disease Closes Cortina InnThe Cortina Inn in Killington was closed late on Thursday, April 3 at the direction of the Vermont Department of Health. This came after laboratory tests of water samples taken on March 29 from several locations within the Inn confirmed the presence of the bacteria Legionella pneumophila in its water system.The Health Department was notified on March 28 about a case of Legionella pneumonia, known as Legionnaires disease. This was the third confirmed case over the past six months, but the first to be strongly linked to exposure at the Inn. Legionnaires disease is treatable with antibiotics, and all three people have since recovered.This is a problem that can be fixed. The Cortina Inn is working closely and cooperatively with the Health Department to take the actions needed to assure the safety of their guests and employees, said State Epidemiologist Cort Lohff, MD. The first step was closing the Inn for however long it takes to treat and disinfect the water system and put in place engineering and monitoring measures to prevent this from happening again.Employees and current guests were advised of the situation yesterday. The Health Department is also working with the Inn to notify any guests who have stayed there since mid-March.People can develop Legionnaires disease after they breathe in aerosolized water containing the Legionella bacteria sprayed through faucets, showers, whirlpool spas, pools, cooling towers, etc. Most people who are exposed to the the bacteria will not develop illness.Legionnaires disease is not spread from person to person, and you cant get it by drinking coffee, driving by or simply walking through a building, said Dr. Lohff. For people who are directly exposed, those most likely to develop serious illness are the elderly, smokers, people with chronic lung disease or compromised immune systems.The disease has two distinct forms: Legionnaires disease, the more severe form of infection, which includes pneumonia and Pontiac fever, a milder illness.An estimated 8,000 to 18,000 people get Legionnaires disease in the United States each year. Symptoms usually include fever, chills, and a cough. Some patients also have muscle aches, headache, tiredness, loss of appetite and, occasionally, diarrhea. Chest X-rays often show pneumonia but specific tests are needed to diagnose legionella pneumonia.
Disputes between Slovenia and Croatia over the sea border do not seem to affect the mood of Slovenian tourists, who still, according to a recent survey, prefer to spend their summers on the Croatian sea and, along with Germans and Italians, are the most numerous foreign tourists.The Ljubljana daily Delo conducted a survey that showed that 49 respondents prefer to go on holiday to Croatia, 45 percent spend their summers in Slovenian resorts, 7 percent in Italy, 4 in Spain and 3 percent in Greece. It is interesting that more than 75 respondents say that they will spend the summer in Croatia or spend at least one day on a trip there. According to the Croatian Tourist Board, in recent years the number of arrivals of guests from Slovenia has grown by two to three percent.Most of them cite the geographical proximity of Croatian destinations, natural beauty, family and friendly ties, similarity of language as the reason for coming to Croatia, and we should not ignore the fact that many Slovenes in Croatia have their own holiday properties. Slovenian President Borut Pahor also decided to spend his summer holidays on the Croatian sea, so he announced that he would spend a week with his family in Umag. However, Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar is bypassing Croatia in a big way. He will spend his vacation in August on the Slovenian sea, mountains and lakes, and will also enjoy the beauties of the Montenegrin coast and the Austrian Alps.Slovenian tourism is also recording better results in terms of the number of guests, which prompted the tourist staff of Bled and Bohinj to tell domestic tourists not to come in the height of the main season but in the fall when there are fewer guests.Slovenians mostly visit destinations in Istria and Kvarner, followed by destinations in the Zadar region. Tourist traffic from Slovenia is dominant in the camping segment. In the segment of commercial capacities, family accommodation is in second place, followed by hotels. A relatively high share of Slovenians’ traffic is made up of arrivals and overnight stays in non-commercial accommodation facilities.Take a look at the key features of tourist traffic from Slovenia here
