PREMIERE: The Higgs Share Jam-Heavy Pro-Shot Video For “Rose Will Fall (Part 2)” [Watch]

first_imgSouthern California’s cosmic quartet, The Higgs, began releasing a series of live singles over the past month. The Higgs, or as many of their fans affectionately refer to them, the “Los Angeles Jammers”, have recently shared both “Late Night” and “Rhyme Or Reason” ahead of today’s “Rose Will Fall (Part 1)”, which the band shared earlier in the day.“Rose Will Fall (Part 2)” will be the final single set for release ahead of the forthcoming live compilation album, Rose Will Fall – Mixtape, which is due out March 20th. In true mixtape fashion, the Higgs plan on gifting fans who order Rose Will Fall – Mixtape on CD a limited number of cassette tapes. Replete with raw emotion, excellent storytelling, and exploratory jam sections, Rose Will Fall – Mixtape prominently displays the band’s approach to songwriting and crafting an energetic live experience.Today, Live For Live Music is excited to premiere The Higgs’ new live single, “Rose Will Fall (Part 2)”, and the accompanying pro-shot video recorded live from the Moontower Soirée 2019. Part two of “Rose Will Fall” serves as the epilogue to part one, and together they form a monstrous, 30-minute tale of fading love and the spark that comes with finding it once more.“The reason the song is split up into two parts is that the first part is the beginning and the middle of a story,” guitarist John Lovero explained. “And the second part is the end of the story, the outcome.”The two parts are, of course, inextricably related, but also highlight different emotions. Lovero remarked,[Part 2] kind of has a triumphant ending, whereas Part 1 is more of a roller coaster ride where you’re going through ups and downs. But then you come out to the other side, which is the light at the end of the tunnel, a beautiful bliss moment with an epic jam and really good vibes. I see it as the phoenix rising from the ashes.Below, embark on The Higgs’ epic, half-hour journey with “Rose Will Fall” (Parts 1 & 2).The Higgs – “Rose Will Fall (Part 1)” [Video: The Higgs]The Higgs – “Rose Will Fall (Part 2)” [Video: The Higgs]The Higgs recently wrapped up a run with Twiddle in Southern California and Salt Lake City, UT, during which they made a generous donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation in the late Kobe Bryant’s name.

Live long and financially strong with these 3 tips

first_imgBy 2029, more than 76 million baby boomers will be 65 or older, according to  recent Census estimates. While there is great upside to increased longevity, there are also challenges. Inflation, climbing health care expenses and ebbing safety nets are complex dynamics to navigate through an extended retirement.One key aspect of longer lifespans many Americans overlook is caregiving. In fact, the government estimates 70 percent of adults 65 or older will require some form of long-term care (“LTC”). Recent findings from Northwestern Mutual’s 2015 C.A.R.E(Costs, Accountabilities, Realities, Expectations) Study  underscore this reality.Nearly four in 10 Americans (36 percent) are currently or have been caregivers to adults who are aging, ill or with special needs. The study further reveals caregiving, while rewarding, can have significant financial and emotional implications.The good news is that whether boomer or any other generation, it is rarely too late to create — or adjust — a financial planning strategy that will help you live your desired lifestyle through your lifespan. Rebekah Barsch, vice president, planning and sales, Northwestern Mutual, suggests the following:Face the financial realities. The Northwestern Mutual 2015 Planning & Progress Study found outliving their retirement savings is among the top financial fears for Americans. Moreover, a solid portion do not feel at all financially prepared to live through their 80s and 90s. Combined with rising costs and the potential long-term care needs, avoidance is no longer an option.Speak up. Though finances are an uncomfortable topic for many, a candid dialogue is essential to making important decisions. This is especially important when it comes to difficult topics like long-term care, which could impact the entire family. Understanding the concerns and wishes of your loved ones is the cornerstone of effective planning.Know when you need help. When it comes to financial planning, half of the boomers (age 50-68) in the 2015 Planning & Progress Study said they were either informal or non-planners. Considering the correlation between planning and financial security in retirement, as well as the added complexities of longevity, a self-directed approach can be a risky bet when the stakes are high. An expert can take an objective look at your finances and tailor a strategy that adapts as your financial needs evolve.Brandpointcontent.comlast_img read more
