Something really,
really generic
Four BFA's strike a daring pose
for their thesis concert, Lather,
Rinse, Repeat. Clockwise from
the top are Ericka Frederick,
Rebecca Shubart, Matthew
Rose and Amy Drum, who have
each choreographed a group
piece and will also perform solo
pieces (choreographed for them
by faculty members such as
Jessica Fogel and Peter
Sparling) in their modern dance
presentation this weekend. "We
had to come up with a title for
the whole concert that was all-
encompassing," says Drum. "In
the past, there's been things like
Shaping Forces and Trilogy,
which are generic and not very
innovative." Drum adds that
Lather, Rinse, Repeat is so
generic, it really means nothing.
Like their photographic image,
the four dancers hope that
Lather, Rinse, Repeat will
"catch people's eye," says
Drum. Catch the performance
tonight through Saturday at 8
p.m. in the Dance School's Studio
A. Ticket's are $5. Call 763-5460
for more info.

cycles the same idea over and over
again.
With redundant, over-used guitar
lines, and pseudo-"Oh, I'm so de-
pressed" lyrics, Field Trip has not
come up with a very memorable
recording. In fact, the brighter sides
of this album come through when
the band deviates from its tiring pop
music formula. "Ugly," an appar-
ently misplaced grunge rocker, is
reminiscent of something one of the
Seattle-based bands might compose.

However, with a catchy hook and
dominant drums in the forefront,
"Ugly" is the type of song this
group would be better suited play-
ing. "Please" is one of the only
standard rock songs which works,
and this is primarily due to
Galbraith's Mould-like voice,
which makes you almost forget who
you're actually hearing.
The band's one brilliant moment
on the album is a cover of Dead or
Alive's "You Spin Me 'Round
(Like A Record)." A searing guitar
riff and Galbraith's comical vocal
rendition of the song clearly helps

this track surpass any other on the
album. Nevertheless, no group can
stand for any significant amount of
time on just one song, especially.
when it's only a cover song at that.
Field Trip shows some promis
ing musical talent. But, for now, it
seems wasted - pointed in the
wrong direction. If the band can
focus on the little things that are
clever about this album and spread}
them over an entire production, then
maybe we've stumbled across quite
a find here.

JAM
Continued from page 5
"It was intense! It was a rush, it
was real life, something I earned. I
felt so happy to be alive. Was it be-
cause I'd just tempted death? I don't
think so. It was more like this was
such a great experience, death had
nothing to do with it.
"And while I was out there, I
got a light bulb. So the next night,
before we went onstage, for me to
hold that light bulb in my hand,
nothing else mattered, it symbol-
ized so much. Actually, I got two.
One for me, one for the writer."
After we finished talking, I sat

back to watch Pearl Jam play its
soundcheck. I had mentioned to
Vedder earlier that the band's song
"Black" was my favorite, and he
sadly informed me that it wasn't
part of the abbreviated opening set.
As the opening riff of "Why
Go" began, though, Vedder sud-
denly stopped the song. The band
then ripped through an incredible
version of "Black."
"This one's for you," Eddie
called from the stage. At that mo-
ment, I knew how that reporter
from Rolling Stone must have felt
receiving a lightbulb from such an
enigmatic and beautiful person. Un-
fortunately, I never got to thank

him for a small gesture that really
meant a lot to me. So hey, Eddie -'
thanks, man.
PEARL JAM performs tonight at the
Blind Pig, with special guests THE
