Week Two of Summer at UW-Eau Claire
To Feature Music and Film


 MAILED:  June 14, 2004

EAU CLAIRE - Singer-songwriter Matt Wahl will present a free outdoor concert at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire on Monday, June 21.

The Summer Session Programs show will begin at 7 p.m. on the Central Campus Mall. Audience members are invited to bring blankets or folding chairs for lawn seating.

Matt Wahl spent three years in an office cubicle before giving up the corporate life for the open road. Living his dream of touring and playing music full time, Wahl has created a down-to-earth, light-hearted acoustic rock-folk sound that appeals to any age. Drawing from such artists as Gordon Lightfoot, Harry Chapin and Jimmy Buffet, he mixes lyrically meaningful original songs with fun cover tunes.

Also on campus during the week of June 21 are these free events:

The Coen brothers followed the film noir of "Blood Simple" with frantic screwball comedy for "Raising Arizona," their second film. Nicolas Cage stars as a bumbling convenience-store robber who vows to go straight when he marries Ed (Holly Hunter), the cop he fell for while she took his mug shots. But when Ed finds she can't have a baby, the couple steals one of the quintuplets born to furniture tycoon Nathan Arizona (Trey Wilson), since he and his wife now have more kids than they know what to do with. John Goodman co-stars.

Rated PG-13, the 94-minute color film will screen via DVD projection.

Summer Session Programs continue through Aug. 5. A complete schedule is available from the Activities and Programs office, Davies Center 133, (715) 836-4833, and on the Web.
