Quints, groceries,

and music at the Quad

By Gary Helfand
T he civilian Fun Group, East Quad's
favorite basement band, is back
for their first rootin' tootin' rock-n-roll

show of the year tonight in the Halfway
This dynamic group of five identical
quintuplets has been playing their
brand of rip-roarin' hard-rocking music

, 5-



in Ann Arbor for two and a half years.
C.F.G. is famed for their hard-dancing
guaranteed fun shows, their finger-
stomping cow-punching music, and
their uncanny ability to impersonate
each other.
Past shows have been played to full
houses of dancing, satisfied customers.
The dancing, as the music, ranges form

however. Singer Lawrence explains:
"If Dave Adoesn't do some dishes soon
I'm going to quit the band. I don't have
to put up with this. It's shoddy."
Despite Lawrence's foreboding quip,
spirits are running high for tonight's
concert. Local bandleader Nosmo King
will be debuting his New and Improved
Orchestra to open the show and King
promises a highly theatrical perfor-
mance. Kalamazoo band Tavia Control
also might play, if they get a ride to Ann
Arbor. These original bands combined
with C.F.G.'s fast moving rock and roll
should result in a show well worth the
one buck admission charge.
The East Quad Music Co-op is
providingthe sound system for the
show. The Halfway Inn is located in the
Church Street entrance to East Quad.
Show starts at 8:30 or so, depending if
the band from Kalamazoo gets a ride or,

What could be better than a drum-
