Ann Arbor wil get to sing its own
version of "Feed the World" Saturday
when the Public Interest Research
Group in Michigan launches its Ann
Arbor Aid for Africa benefit concert
at the Michigan Theater.
From noon tomidnight all are in-
vited to come see some of Ann Arbor's
hottest bands, as well as an assor-
tment of other musical and comedic
performers from the area.
THE BENEFIT, or "Rock Aid" as
it has been dubbed, is part of the
Hunger. Groups similar to PIRGIM
across the country have united to join
in on the project, and PIRGIM's par-
ticipation has placed the University in
a national competition with other
campuses to raise funds for the
master USA for Africa drive. The
campus which raises the most money
will receive special recognition from
the United Nations.
Featured as part of Saturday's
event is local powerhouse/recording
artists Map of the World, the unique
Color, and partying faves the Ur-
bations and the Whatusies. Also slated
to appear will be the local legend
Peter "Madcat" Ruth, the reggae
band Modesa (Kingbe), newcomers
Entropy, and The Bandits. Grand
Rapids' Invisible Ink will also be
joining the festivities.
Most of the big musical acts will be
performing sometime during the
evening hours, but according to Steve
Johnson, PIRGIM's student organizer
of the event, "it could run into the wee
many great bands that it's probably
going to go on a little longer." There
will also be a "surprise" musical
CHICAGO'S Lou Schneider and
Detroit native Dave Soarn will be ad-
ding a touch of humor between the
music, and the show will be hosted by.
Craig Bordeaux of WIQB. Campus
station WCBN will be taping the per
formances, and Access Productions
will be video taping so that the event
may be shown at a later date.

and Human Destiny would be used in

engineers a "minimal awareness of

primary agents of social change and
need to be more socially literate," he
