Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York 50th Anniversary of Jefferson Airplane & The Grateful DeadSo everybody knows that when the Jefferson Airplane shed its wings in the 1970s, the Starship took off into the pop stratosphere with a stellar overdrive fueled by arena rock blasted at full throttle. The ole hippie-dippy psychedelic sound wasn’t quite left behind in the rush from its San Francisco roots, but the band headed in a different direction that had harder metallic edges than it ever had. Going further was always the destination of this ship. And what a long strange trip it’s been on—and it’s still going strong. Climb on board and listen to the music of the stars. Opening the show are Jazz Is Dead and Quicksilver Messenger Service.

In 1916, while war rages in the Ottoman Empire, Hussein raises his younger brother Theeb in a traditional Bedouin community that is isolated by the vast, unforgiving desert. The brothers’ quiet existence is suddenly interrupted when a British Army officer and his guide ask Hussein to escort them to a water well located along the old pilgrimage route to Mecca. So as not to dishonor his recently deceased father, Hussein agrees to lead them on the long and treacherous journey. The young, mischievous Theeb secretly chases after his brother, but the group soon find themselves trapped amidst threatening terrain riddled with Ottoman mercenaries, Arab revolutionaries, and outcast Bedouin raiders. The director will be on hand to discuss the screening at this special preview.

A RECORD-breaking knock from Babar Azam lifted Pakistan to a 136-run victory in Abu Dhabi and a whitewash in their three-match one-day international series against West Indies.Babar notched 120 and 123 in the first and second ODIs respectively, and he racked up another 117 off 106 deliveries yesterday to take his total to 360 – more than any other batsman has managed in a series of three or fewer 50-over matches.His 147-run partnership for the second wicket with captain Azhar Ali (101), who bounced back from scoring just nine runs in the first two matches, set a formidable target of 309.And the Windies were unable to save face with Denesh Ramdin top-scoring with 37 as they fell to a second clean sweep of the tour after being skittled out for 172.The tourists will hope to step up their performances ahead of a gruelling Test series which starts in Dubai next week Thursday.Azhar and Sharjeel Khan (38) started strongly, and any relief the Windies had from seeing the latter caught off Sulieman Benn (1-51) at long-on was short-lived, with Babar entering the fray and quickly settling into a steady routine with his captain.Every gap in the field appeared simple for Babar to spot as he surged through the gears, but his skipper was eventually undone by a slow ball from Jason Holder (1-63).Pakistan lost Shoaib Malik for five but Babar was unperturbed, celebrating becoming the third batsman from his country to score hundreds in three successive ODI innings, by dropping to his knees.Kieron Pollard (1-19) finally brought the curtain down on the youngster’s phenomenal knock for his 50th ODI wicket before Alzarri Joseph (2-62) removed Mohammad Rizwan (4) and Imad Wasim (4) in the latter stages.Sohail Khan (1-34) replaced Mohammed Amir in the Pakistan XI and the move quickly paid off as the paceman made the breakthrough with the removal of Evin Lewis (22) in the 10th over.Kraigg Brathwaite (32) reached the boundary three times before being trapped leg-before by Shoaib (1-23), and when Darren Bravo (17) and Marlon Samuels (13) soon followed the Windies were 93-4 in the 23rd over.Mohammad Nawaz accounted for Pollard (11) before claiming the scalps of Sunil Narine and Benn in the same over, while Wahab Riaz removed Joseph (2) for his 100th ODI wicket.Pakistan rounded off a brilliant display when Rizwan capitalised on a miscommunication between Ramdin and Shannon Gabriel to run the keeper out as the Windies’ meek reply concluded in fitting fashion.
