good acts. But they're very good at
keeping on top of things, so I really
don't have any horror stories," says
"But we have gotten to meet
some great people," the singer con-
tinues. "The big thrill for me was
Aerosmith, just because we kind of
popped in on 'em unannounced back
stage. Steven Tyler was totally into
his music. He didn't even know that
we were standing there. He was lis-
tening to their first record and it
was really cool to see how much he
still loves it and believes in it."
With all of this rock influence,
the Toll still has found a place in its
heart for rap. Brent B. from the
MCA rap group 7A3 does a guest
appearance on two songs on the
Toll's latest album, Sticks And
Stones And Broken Bones.
"It's funny, because when we
first started getting into rap we
were into Ice-T, and the drummer
from Anthrax would come to see us
a couple of times," says Circone.
"But a lot of people called our nar-
ratives 'raps,' when I used to do
those long soliloquies. So that
spurred off an idea over a year ago
when we used to have local rap

groups open up for us inColumbus.
So it was just a natural step for us,
because there were some points that
I wanted to get across, but I didn't
want to necessarily do them in the
same way as the first record with
just the slow talking narrative. I
wanted to find a different way to do
that. So, for me, rap is just another
means to do a narrative, and we're
not just using it to be using it be-
cause it's hip, like some other bands
are doing."
You can expect that Brent B.
will probably not be at the Toll's
Friday night performance. But what
can you expect?
"I don't know," says Circone.
"We might play the album just the
way it is or we might improvise. It
all depends. When we play live, we
pretty much do anything that we
want. It all depends on our mood.
There are some nights, say sexually,
where you like doing something
you've never done before to your
partner, whoever that may be. And
there's other nights where it feels
kind of generic, but you still want
to come. (Hearty male chuckle.)
That's pretty much how we view
our Rock 'n' Roll."
T HE TOLL plays tonight at Rick's,
with BORN NAKED opening.

Henry VanKuiken's light and witty
piece appears on the same bill as Jean
MacGregor-Wiles' ethereal solo,
Within Reach. Also to be presented
is a sensuous solo by Barbara Neri
(former Dean of the Dance
Department, as well as a University
alumnus) entitled Great Lakes
Movement Study, and a men's duet
by Paula Hunter called Cave.
Performing their own solos will
be Veta Goler, in Sisters, as well as
Barbara Rinaldo in Dreams, and
Nadine Tringali in Lagtime. Linda
Ferrato will be performing alum-
nus Catherine Lichtman's bitter-
sweet solo, Peach Pie and Passages,
and Alan Lommasson will be pre-
senting his playful quartet, Mar-
tha's Lament. A special treat in
Friday's show will be the premier
of Barber Gym, a duet created for
the occasion by Diane Eilber and
Carol Richards. It reminisces about
the days when the Dance Depart-

ment at the University used to be
part of the P.E. Department.
The alumni will come not only
bearing the gifts of their perfor-
mance and choreographic talents,
but also sharing their accomplish-
ments in the classroom. Two master
classes will be given on Saturday by
MacGregor-Wiles and Eilber. They
are mixed level classes open to ev-
eryone, and students are encouraged
to attend.
Both evenings promise to be full
of laughter, imagination and the
poignancy of 15 very remarkable
dancers' journeys. They return to
explore the history of the
University dance department and
celebrate its future.
DANCERS will be held at the
Dance Building (adjacent to the
CCRB) in Studio A tonight and to-
morrow night at 8 p.m. Tickets are
$8, $5 stud./sen. Guest classes will
be held on Saturday at 10 a.m. and
12 p.m. in Studio Dfor $8, or $15 for
both. For more info call 763-5460.

"I don't think we would ever get
sick of playing our songs. I mean,
sure, at times, you get tired, you
want to change the set around, but
there's always enough songs to fall
back on. We're always gonna have to
play the songs that really got us to
the success level. What I'm saying
is, the songs that are more rec-
ognizable as hits, like 'Eyes of A
Stranger,' 'Silent Lucidity'... Those
are, like, the favorites of the fans."
So is this accommodating the
fans? Is it selling out? Or is it just

"I don't knock down any thrash,
any hard, heavy rock, any speed rock,
speed metal, whatever," Jack-son
said. "First, of all, it's none of my
business to judge. I don't like
judging people or anything... We
like to write songs that we enjoy
playing, and that we enjoy writing.
"We like to write any type of
music, as long as it pleases us. I
think that's just our direction... We
can't just keep writing fast music
all the time. It gets a little
monotonous after a while. It just
shows a different side of
Queensryche. We're happy with it."
QUEENSRYCHE builds its empire
tonight at 8 p.m. at the Palace. Ex-
local boy Kory Clarke's band,
WARRIOR SOUL, opens. Tickets
are $20 at Ticketmaster (plus evil
service charge).

Schubert's music has a soothing and.
dreamy quality.
In comparison to the first half of
the program, the music in the second
half is rather unconventional. Auger
will perform works by Samuelj
Barber, Aaron Copland, Ned Rorem
and Lee Hoiby. "(These works) rep-
resent three different expressions of
American composers," she explains.
"Barber is innovative," says Au-
ger, "His songs are melodic love

big time: first the cover of Current,
rative. The stage that is joyously
alive with powerful, soaring voices
and the beautifully conflicting mo-
tions of bodies remains irresolute it

The complications that Gaie
confronts are only touched upon by
his message of collective thinking
over petty individualism. His tal-
ents are undisputable and hik

social commentary through to an.*

"Gus Van Sant makes a big bold leap to join Jim Jarmusch
and the Coen brothers in the front ranks of America's most
innovative independent film makers. The film itself is
invigorating - written, directed and acted with enormous
insight and comic elan." - Vincent Canby, N.Y. TDIMES
"****! Van Sant performs the same miracle he did with
watt Dillon in 'Drugstore Cowboy.' Nothing could prepare yot
for this unapologetic, uncompromising piece of renegade
cinema. A deeply moving experience." Lawrence Frasoena, US
"****! Exceptional.... so delightfully different and daring
that it renews your faith." - Marshall Fine, GANNE NEWS SERVICE
