Concert by Flood Plane and Other
Free Events Offered at UW-Eau Claire
MAILED: July 15, 2002
EAU CLAIRE — A free outdoor concert by Flood Plane on Monday, July 29, will begin the last week of Summer Session Programs at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
The concert will begin at 7 p.m. on the Central Campus Mall (rain: Schofield Auditorium). Refreshments will be sold. Audience members are invited to bring blankets or folding chairs for lawn seating.
Vincent K. Rose and Nick Johnson teamed their acoustic guitars and voices to compose fresh new music in the folk/rock tradition, and they perform only original compositions. Since its well-received debut performance in The Cabin last September, Flood Plane has performed at the Acoustic Cafe, Gramma Bonine's Cafe and the Borealis Cafe in Minneapolis. The duo is slated to appear at the Stones Throw, Stella Blues, The Cabin, Higherground and elsewhere in western Wisconsin and the Twin Cities area.
These free events will also be presented on campus during the week of July 29:
Francois Truffaut's "Fahrenheit 451" (1966) will screen Tuesday and Thursday at noon and 7 p.m. in Davies Theatre, concluding the Summer Cinema series about people making moral choices in an immoral world.
For his first film in color and in English, Truffaut chose Ray Bradbury's classic study of a totalitarian world in the not-distant future, where the possession or reading of books is prohibited. Fahrenheit 451 is the temperature at which book paper spontaneously combusts, a fact well known to the firemen who, in this future dark age, are sent out to burn books. When a schoolteacher (Julie Christie) asks the complacent fireman Montag (Oskar Werner) if he ever reads the books he burns, the question haunts him - until he discovers Dickens.
The 111-minute film will screen via DVD projection.
UW-Eau Claire and area jazz musicians will perform from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday on the Central Campus Mall (rain: The Cabin of Davies Center). A variety of grilled lunch items will be sold.
Funded by UW-Eau Claire student segregated fees, the Summer Session Programs series is sponsored annually by the Activities and Programs office.
