THE highlight of the Ark's 25th
anniversary season is, predictably, a
great big concert featuring all of
your favorite acts. Ho hum. A bunch
of those silly folkies are sure to
show up with their guitars so they
can sing some beautiful songs, tell
some touching stories, make every-
body feel better about themselves
and all that junk. You know, the
junk that music is all about. The
lineup for Saturday's concert at Hill
Auditorium is typically stellar.
Dave Bromberg, bluegrass blues-
man extraordinaire, used to help
people like Chubby Checker and
Bob Dylan make records. For that,
he was called a "sideman." For a
couple of decades he's been making
records of his own. The latest is
called Sideman Serenade and fea-
tures such accomplished sidemen as
Jackson Browne and Jorma Kauko-
nen. In concert, Bromberg's voice
breaks in all the right places and so
do his guitar strings.
John Prine writes some of the
saddest, funniest songs on record.
Ever since he penned "There's a hole
in Daddy's arm where all the money
goes/ And Jesus died for nothing I
suppose," in a song called "Sam
Stone" in 1973 a few lucky people
have known about him. But there's
no point keeping John Prine a se-
cret. His is the kind of gift worth
sharing. Prine will be joined by a
backup band called The National Re-
Comedy Company toes the line
The Comedy Company has been around for 10 whole days - um, years, and they're going to herald countless
future ones with their new and nicely punned new production, I Stubbed my Big Show. With sketches like
''Those Meddling Kids," "Shopping for Ties," "Cafe Pretentious," "Planet of the Cheerleaders" and "The Wacky
Nutty Zoo," you simply can't go wrong. Give them a chance tonight and tomorrow at 8 p.m. at the Mendelssohn
Theatre. Tickets are $3.50 in advance at the Union, $4 at the door at the League - surely a relic of the
University's old gender-segregated and discriminatory days.
