Just What are
"Roches" Anyway?
What sounds like the Andrew Sisters singing Woody Allen dialogue to Cole
Porter tunes that go awry? The Roches, of course, those souls from another
world who will be appearing soon in this very town. These sisters, Maggie,
Terre, and Suzzy, learned to harmonize about as soon as they learned to
talk. Not bothering with formal musical training, they began to write and sing
lots of unique songs.
They come out of New York's folk/feminist/bohemian tradition, mingling
barbershop quartet,'Irish traditional, Andrews Sisters, doo-wop, and other
more obscure styles in songs full of word plays and unexpected twists. They
sing like wise-cracking angels, weird in the best sense of the word. They are
completely original and very alive.
In support of their new MCA album "Speak," these indefinable songsters will
appear in Ann Arbor on Wednesday, February 21 at 8:00 at the Power Cen-
ter, proudly presented by the Office of Major Events. Tickets for $16 are on
sale now at the Michigan Union Ticket Office. To charge by phone, call 763-

February is National Wellness Month, and the perfect
opportunity to spend some time volunteering with the
various agencies around the community that focus on
mental health.
Dedicated to the support of families of
the mentally ill, this group provides education about the
various mental illnesses and advocacy for those who
suffer from them. Volunteers support families, inform
the community, and help create understanding of those

"I guess I'll start ing my thoughts of our
first shot at site. Wow-what an experience! I was initially
scared out of my wits by Bill. I think it would be impossible for
him to be less animated-lest I say excited?! He didn't seem
to have anything positive to say about us being there, but
maybe he wa ' st tryin prepare us for the worst. Well,
after last T esday, I don't th k that will be necessary. Yes,
most of t e boys aired their re tive displeasure about us being
at their use-but seemed to ort of enjoy our presence.
When w first began to rap wi em at t eginning of the
session, was convinced t ur plans of" , Lose, or Draw"
would fail iserably. But, guys really acted ike they got
into it.
My next site fea is running into a rut f things to do.
We seem to be limited by s eral things. De re number one is
resources and time. Now I re feel a cpr3mitment to make
them have fun. I know that they won't all always love what we
do, but it really puts the pressure to produce on! I guess we, as
a small group, will really have to do some serious brainstorm-
