With something that can only be filed in the “ridiculously awesome” category, Iceland’s Secret Solstice festival has just announced a special set inside of a volcano. After successfully putting on a show inside of a glacier this year, the team from Secret Solstice decided to one-up themselves, launching the appropriately titled “Secret Solstice Presents Inside The Volcano” series.The show will feature a solo set by Deftones singer Chico Moreno with a few special guests inside the dormant magma chamber of Thrihnukagigur volcano. The band and twenty extremely lucky fans will be flown from Reykjavík to the top of the volcano, and will descend into the magma chamber via an elevator that’s been special set up for this special performance in a unreal location.Learn more about this once-in-a-lifetime set here.

And with the name “Kane County Teachers Credit Union” over the door, “people thought you had to be a teacher or part of a union to join,” Lee says.He rebranded the $231 million asset institution as KCT Credit Union and partnered with the Gail Borden Public Library—one of its select employee groups—to open a branch in downtown Elgin. KCT CU’s branch in the Gail Borden Public Library saved the CU the cost of building a new branch. “A library is a place where there already are people,” says CEO Mike Lee.

Ireland scrum-half Conor Murray says they must improve to beat England at Twickenham | Rugby Union News
Murray began on the bench against Wayne Pivac’s side as Jamison Park-Gibson took the number nine jersey to make his first Test start.The Munster man was eventually brought on to win his 84th cap in the unfamiliar role of fly-half after injuries forced off captain Johnny Sexton and debutant Billy Burns.With head coach Farrell seeking to give opportunities to peripheral members of his squad, Murray offered a diplomatic response to losing his starting spot.“You’ve got to be realistic. Jamison’s been playing really well and he deserved the chance,” said Murray.
