Well, in any case, he's
back. Barrance Whitfield, that
is, along with his band the
Savages. They've brought
their frenetic, no-chords-
barred R&B attack to the
Blind Pig time and again, and
tonight will be one of those
agains, as the band takes the
stage at 10 p.m.
The Savages have become
reknowned for their
aggressive, Wilson Pickett or
steroids live sound.
Translated onto their albums,
it's earned them critical
praise for Ow Ow Ow and
Dig Yourself, among others.
Tickets are $7.50 and are
available in advance at
This band calls itself the Vicious Hippies. A self-contradiction? Yeah, but wasn't the rest of
the '60s9. Atyway, they'll kick out the jams tonight at the U-Club in support of the 'Nobody
for President' campaign.

BY JIM PONJ EWOZIK
SO I answered the phone, reaching for the note pad,
assuming that, as usual, it wasn't for me, when to and
behold, a voice says -
"Hi, Jim, this is Blzgh Slzhangblh from PIRGIM.
I've got a card here that says you're interested in help-
ing with our voter registration drive..."
Omigod. I'm trapped. I responded courteously,
stalling and cursing the day I filled out that card in my
Core I class, half from a sense of Grade-A liberal guilt,
and half from a sense of not wanting to look like a
dork in front of a classroom of other guilty liberals
filling out the same form.
No escape. I agreed to the set-up - one hour of
standing like a geek in the middle of the Fishbowl, ha-
ranguing a stream of Friday afternoon lecture-numb
lamebrains to be Good Citizens and vote, vote, vote.
Yes, I was that funny-looking guy who accosted you
while you were in a stupor calculating the number of
minutes to happy hour.
Many of you didn't register. Some did, and won't
vote. Why? Well, why should you? Let's face it, all
Decision '88 boils down to is whether your sleeping
pill will have a "D" or a "B" engraved on top.
Well, Wavy Gravy has an alternative. This Novem-
ber whateveritis (you can figure the date out for your-
self by taking the third Monday after the first Wednes-
day, dividing the date by three and then throwing a dart
at the calendar), Gravy, a comedian, clown (rubber nose
and all), and political iconoclast, wants you to vote for
"Nobody cares about the environment," he told me.
"Nobody knows what to do about the deficit. Nobody
knows what to do with nuclear waste."
Accompanying Gravy on his campaign stops is a
band called the Vicious Hippies. Gravy himself was an
emcee at Woodstock. He was one of the original
founders of the Hog Farm commune in New Mexico
and digs the Grateful Dead. Let's not mince words.-
Wavy Gravy's a hippie. As a rule, I hate hippies. But'
as a rule, I hate politicians. So I'll give him the benefit',
of a doubt. To wax groovy, what if they gave an elec-
tion and nobody came?
Gravy has taken his Nobody for President campaign=
on the road since 1976 (in culture-specific terms, since,
Mo Udall last ran and Welcome Back Kotter was on:
the air). But he made earlier forays into politics, cam-
paigning for a rock and a roll ("It was great, you could
eat the vice president") in '72 and a pig, with true
Haight-Ashbury sardonicism, in '68.,
But his latest candidate, represented by a pair of
plastic chattering teeth, has the most impressive cre-
dentials, which he is quick to rattle off. "Nobody goes
back before Aristotle," he said. "Nobody was president
before George Washington ... George Bush himself
said, 'Nobody has all the. answers...' Nobody won the
You get the point. But behind what might seem an
exercise in dead horse flogging is a serious message htmr epevt o ooyta nbd ne-
ery presidential election.
"We've never considered non-voting an option,..
we're very anti-apathetic," Gravy said. But, he theo-
rizes, if None of the Above were on the ballot (a move,
a la Brewster's Millions, which Gravy and co. actually,
tried once in California), the politicos might reconsider-
the nobodies that they consistently run every four.
So turn the TV dial to CNN's Election Watch and
throw a brick through the screen. Hoist up your blank
campaign signs and heed Wavy Gravy's clarion call:,
"Fuck Bartles and Jaymes- nobody needs your
