is matched with its owner's name

Of course there are numerous
ways to prevent the theft. Sergeant

expensive locks can go for as high

Academic crunch time is tough at
anytime of the year, but it seems
harder during the holiday season.
With the mounds of exams and
papers under which students are
finding themselves, it is pretty diffi-
cult to get into the giving spirit.
Making it a little easier for stu-
dents to help those in need this sea-
son, Rock 103 FM WIQB is spon-
soring "Rockin' for the Hungry."
Taking place tomorrow night at
the Michigan Theatre, "Rockin' for
the Hungry" will feature headliner
Candlebox. Doors open at 8 p.m.,
get there on time to hear openers
Goodness and the Hunger.
Although this is the station's first
Rockin' For the Hungry, WIQB is no
stranger to helping the Ann Arbor
community
during the
holidays. l f
For the p o l r
past few' they wil n
years WIQBi
has worked uiteaSome
to raise food
like their sis-
ter station

FM, did ear-
lier this year. In a different form of
"Rockin' for the Hungry," Q107 sta-
tion members broadcasted live out-
side of Busch's Value Land on Main
Street for three days and raised more
than 80 tons of food for Food
Gatherers.
Net proceeds from tomorrow night's
show will benefit St. Andrew's Church
Breakfast Program, located at 306 N.
Division Ave.
"We hope to raise as much as pos-
sible and sell out the show," said
WIQB associate director Pete
McGarty.

in advance, and organizers were

show date coincided with the radio
station's charity efforts
"Luckily, Candlebox's stop in Ann
Arbor coincides with WIQB's date for
the benefit," said Dave Clark, promo-
tions director for Prism Productions.
The band is stopping by the
Michigan Theatre in support of its
latest record "Happy Pills."
In a recent interview, lead singer
Kevin Martin discussed the band's
tour and the changes that Candlebox
underwent between "Happy Pills"
and their sophomore effort, the chart
topping "Lucy."
After Candlebox's original drum-
mer, Scott Mercande left the band,
the group recruited Dave Kruzen,
Pearl Jam's former drummer.
"With adding Dave to the band, it
was a matter of incorporating his
styles and his abilities to our music,"

Candlebox lead singer

Martin said,
In addition
to a new
d r u m m e r,
Candlebox
has adopted a
more indi-
vidualistic
attitude dur-
ing the
recording of
H a p p y

Pills."
"Somewhere along the line, you
just stop worrying about what peo-
ple say and start worrying about
what music you do," Martin said.
The new album displays a more
developed band that is not too wor-
ried about creating hit singles that
match the success of those like "Far
Behind," on "Lucy."
"We just took our time and didn't
let the pressures of the label and the
media delegate which direction we
should go," Martin said.
The product of this instinctive cre-
ative process is an album that bal-
ances eccentric guitar work and the
band's reliable cooperative sound.
Candlebox not only encourages

students to see the show for the
music but also for the benefits the
concert will bring to the community.
"There's a lot of people out there
not fortunate to be in school and try-
ing to have a career or and educa-
tion," Martin said, " That's the main
reason people should buy tickets."
Next up for the band is a extended
tour throughout Europe and Asia.
Afterwards, the band will take a
short break and then head back to
the studio. Candlebox's busy sched-
ule is another reason why fans
shouldn't miss tomorrow night's
show.
"If people miss this, they will miss
us for quite sometime," Martin said.
In support of the Candlebox's
appearance at the Michigan Theater
tomorrow night, WIQB has been
registering listeners to win a Gibson
Epiphone guitar autographed by the
band. In order to celebrate the sta-
tion's 22 years on the air, WIQB is
giving out 22 guitars, autographed
by WIQB artists, to its listeners.
In addition to an on-air giveaway,
a guitar displayed at Tower Records
will be handed out to one lucky win-
ner who registered for the drawing at
the record store. Both winners will
receive their guitars at the concert.
As an added bonus, WIQB will
hold an after-party at the Ann Arbor
Brewing Co. Members of Candlebox
will be at the party to meet some of
their fans. Tickets to the party can be
purchased with special $27.50 tick-
ets. Tickets that admit fans only to
the concert cost $21.07 and stu-
dents who show their ID will only
pay $10.03As of yesterday after-
noon, fewer 700 tickets were left for
this show at the Michigan Theatre,
which has a capacity of 1700. Fans
are warned to get their tickets to this
benefit as fast as possible.
After classes are over for the semes-
ter and the great quiet hits campus just
before exams, let loose to three bands
and make a difference in the communi-
ty at the same time.
