NewsHealthWork gets under way on 60 bed Univeristy Hospital Limerick unitBy Bernie English – April 3, 2019 989 University Hospital LimerickWORK has begun on the new 60-bed unit for University Hospital Limerick.A €2 million funding boost ahead of the publication of the capital funding plan has allowed hospital management to start groundworks in preparation for the main task of building the unit.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The 60-bed unit is intended to take some of the pressure off finding beds for patients admitted through the busy emergency department.The works were started in a week when there were more than 70 people on trolleys in the emergency department on one day waiting for beds.No timeline has been set for the completion of the unit as the main body of the €19.5 million funding has yet to be officially confirmed although local politicians have said publicly that it will be part of the capital plan.It’s understood that the build will take up to a year, all going well and after that, the hospital will need to hire nursing and support staff and fit out the unit.A statement on behalf of the UL Hospitals Group said that a timeline for overall project completion could not be set until funding is approved for the main modular build contract itself.“Commencement of the enabling works is a significant milestone. It is accepted by all stakeholders that there is an imbalance in acute hospital bed capacity around the country. Delivery of the 60-bed inpatient block at UHL will begin to help us address our capacity issues in the MidWest,” the statement added.

After what was an incredible weekend of what we have come to know as pure “Bisco” out in Colorado with three nights at the Ogden Theatre that culminated in a celebration at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, we look ahead to The Disco Biscuits‘ annual summer festival, Camp Bisco. Set to take place July 14th-16th at Montage Mountain in Scranton, PA, this year’s lineup features six sets from the festival’s namesake act, as well as sets from Odesza, Big Grizmatik (Big Gigantic, Griz, and Gramatik), STS9, Griz, Lotus, Anderson .Paak & the Free Nationals, Thundercat, Dopapod, RL Grime, Tom Hamilton’s American Babies, Orchard Lounge, The New Deal, and more, Camp Bisco is bringing a little bit of everything to the table.Camp Bisco Reveals Stacked Lineup Of Performing ArtistsWith a major announcement about vast improvements on the festival site, such as round-the-clock shuttle service, advanced receipt of festival wristbands to expedite check-in, increased water station availability, a new Wellness Program – with daily yoga, mountain hikes, a 5K run and workshops – and Clean Vibes on-site to help with waste removal and ensuring a greener event, this is looking to be the best Camp Bisco yet. (Purchase tickets HERE)There are plenty of reasons why you should not miss this year’s festivities, and we are going to take a look at a few of them now:5. Waterpark FunMontage Mountain has an unbelievable water park for all to enjoy. Between the various activities such as the Wavepool, Alpine Run Waterslide Complex, Cross-Country Canal, Tundra Tornado, Iceberg Alley Luge, there is plenty of water-y options to have some fun in the sun outside and keep cool.4. The Classic Jamtronica BandsCamp Bisco has always been at the forefront of the jamtronica and electronica scenes, and with STS9, Lotus, Papadosio, The New Deal, GNOME Project, and The Indobox, there will be plenty for old-school Camp Bisco heads to enjoy.3. Big Gigantic + Griz + Gramatik = Big GrizMatikWhat more needs to be said on this subject? You take three acts that, on their own are huge, and seamlessly coalesce into one….and you get Big Grizmatik. With the amalgamation of hip-hop, funk, electro-soul, and jazz, along with live instrumentation and a full-on audio-visual sensory experience, this set is going to be a major party.2. Six Sets of The Disco BiscuitsThe founders and namesake of Camp Bisco, this festival wouldn’t be possible without the forethought that The Disco Biscuits had back in the late 90’s. The pioneers of trance-fusion carefully curated the lineup with all of the major jamtronica acts mentioned above, and has had some of the biggest international DJ’s and bands play before, or while, they were carving their own paths to superstardom. Think Pretty Lights, Bassnectar, Skrillex, LCD Soundsystem, Wolfgang Gartner, Ween, Thievery Corporation, Shpongle, Emancipator, Snoop Dogg, Nas & Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley, The Roots, and Cut Copy, just to name a few. The Disco Biscuits are Camp Bisco.Coming off arguably one of the the best multi-night runs in their entire history, out in Colorado at Denver’s Ogden Theatre and Red Rocks Amphitheatre, the Biscuits are poised and ready to bring it for six full sets at Camp. To the Bisco faithful, there is absolutely no place on Planet Earth that we would rather be. 1. The Vibe Between the major improvements mentioned earlier, a lineup that has something for everybody, one of the best festival sites in the country in Montage Mountain, and some of the most hardcore, dedicated and faithful fans in the music world, how can you not expect to have a vibe that goes in stride with all of that? Just make sure you bring your ass to the party!For more information and to purchase tickets to Camp Bisco, click HERE.
Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux has revealed plans for the newest installment in his archival series! The new Dave’s Picks Vol. 22 will highlight a beloved era in the Dead’s career, spotlighting the band’s performance on 12/7/71 at the Felt Forum in New York City, from the famous run of shows in the lower level of Madison Square Garden.The show features the return of Pigpen, who had been absent from the Dead since 8/26/71, and features five Pigpen-sung songs, including what Lemieux describes as “arguably the best version of ‘Smokestack Lightning’.” In announcing the new release, he continues, “Every song from this show is played to perfection, presenting definitive live versions of every song played from this era.”Because the show is relatively short at only two and a half hours, they’ve added the bulk of the second set from the previous night, including a massive “Other One” jam, and exceptional renditions of “Wharf Rat” and “Uncle John’s Band”. You can get a taste of what’s to come from the taper recording of this show below, though the sound in the upcoming release will be unbeatable.To make this release akin to a mini-box set, the 2017 Bonus Disc will feature the bulk of the rest of this 12/6/71 show, giving you two nearly-complete shows from one of the most requested and sought-after runs in Grateful Dead history.
