On Tuesday night, Tool played their second show of 2019 at Birmingham, AL’s Legacy Arena at the BJCC. The performance followed the band’s headlining slot at Welcome To Rockville festival in Jacksonville, FL on Sunday, where they debuted a pair of new songs—“Descending” and “Invincible”—marking their first new music since the 2006 release of 10,000 Days.Related: Tool Announces Spring 2019 Tour DatesWhile the band’s first show of the year was highlighted by the new debuts, the biggest storyline to come out of their second 2019 show in Birmingham—aside from the first live rendition of Undertow track “Intolerance” since 2011—came from the intermission toward the end of the set.According to Consequence of Sound, fans at the show reported that a date flashed across the stage’s video screen during the break in the performance: August 30th. Frontman Maynard James Keenan reportedly encouraged fans to blast the date out on social media, noting, “Alright, everyone, take out your phones, security stand down, and let these f*ckers do whatever it is with their phones.”While he didn’t say it explicitly, the official designation of a date by Tool had only one possible meaning to fans of the band: the long-awaited follow-up to 10,000 Days is coming at the end of August. Later in the evening, the band posted the same clip to their social media accounts to fill the masses in on the news: So there you have it. After years of uncertainty, conflicting information and, of course, marginally patient waiting, it looks like the new Tool album is set to arrive on August 30th.For a full list of Tool’s upcoming tour dates, head here.Setlist: Tool | Legacy Arena at the BJCC | Birmingham, AL | 5/7/19ÆnemaThe PotParabol(>)ParabolaDescendingSchismInvincibleJambiIntolerance(first time since 2011)Forty Six & 2IntermissionDrum Solo(Possible New Song)VicariousStinkfistView Setlist
When Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s show in 2010 to announce his $100 million gift to the Newark, N.J., public schools, viewers — including the community the gift was meant to help — were both stunned and exhilarated. Could this act of generosity be the key to pull the school district, which had long been under state control, out of distress? Would New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Newark Mayor Cory Booker, and the city of Newark come together to enact true reform? These questions intrigued Dale Russakoff, a veteran journalist for The Washington Post, who had long been drawn to Newark and its story.“It is a city with a tremendous amount of troubles and struggles, but it is such a metaphor for what has happened to urban America and why,” says Russakoff, who tells the story of the city’s school reform in her new book, “The Prize.”“The where-do-you-go-from-here questions are everywhere in Newark,” she concludesIn this edition of the Harvard EdCast, Russakoff looks at the troubled education reform story in Newark and reflects on what can be learned from its failure to provide system-wide reform.Interview with author of ‘The Prize’Dale Russakoff, author of “The Prize,” examines the troubled education reform story of Newark and reflects on what can be learned from its failure to provide systemwide reform. As part of the Gutman Distinguished Author Series at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, Dale Russakoff discussed “The Prize” on Monday.
