Orange and Kab will kick off the festivities at 10:30 p.m. Chris Kelley, co-owner of Knickerbockers, said he and his part ner enjoyed attending local shows when they were students at the Uni versity of Nebraska-Lincoln. “It’s something we always wanted to do,” he said. In addition to giving local and regional alternative bands exposure, Kelley said that offering live music helps draw people away from the main bar-hopping district. Kelley said Knickerbockers would continue to offer original local bands. However, it plans to work more and more with regional and up-and-com ing bands. To bring the weekend of live mu sic to an end, Tom Ficke will play Sunday at Duffy’s at 10 p.m. Admis sion will be $2. Art faculty shows off work By Paula Lavigne Senior Reporter If art is a reflection of society, then the Department of Art and Art History’s exhibition is a reflection of UNL’s artistic culture. The department’s Faculty Bi ennial Exhibition, which opens today and runs through March 12 in Richards Hall, shows the artistic variety that students are exposed to through their instructors. One of the most vocal pieces, although untitled, is a mixed-me dia by Julie Strathman, a graduate student. Half a brain rests atop a board; the other half lies beneath. Above the board is a paintbrush, below—two bullets. This piece suggests that the upper brain processes the more important, aesthetic value of art, while the lower brain resorts to primal violence. “The Language of Cast Shad ows,” an oil triptych by graduate student Deborah Monfelt, is an excellent tutorial for mastering technique with its representation of lattice, foliage and shadows. Lincoln artist and temporary instructor Susan Puelz contributed “Earthworks VI” to the collection. Puelz’ watercolor depiction of buttes and mesas in vivid contrast ing colors almost moves as if vis ible wind flows across the canvas. A woodcut by temporary instruc tor Ardy Cunningham titled “Gen esis” blends hot magenta and or anges with cubes and an almost Van Gogh circular center. Teaching assistant Craig Roper adds a true splash of creative dar ing with his untitled piece and “Dad’s Suit.” Roper photographs an object and then uses the actual object in the exhibit. For “Untitled,” he placed 25 baseball gloves below 133 photo graphs of baseball gloves. Simi larly, his “Dad’s Suit” was hung above a photograph of that suit. Three pears on a checkerboard table added some authentic Ne braska to the exhibit with “3 of a Kind,” by temporary instructor Terry L. Hager. These oils, watercolors, wood cuts, sculptures, textiles, photo- ' graphs and other works by UNL faculty members prove that Ne braska does indeed have culture. The exhibit showed true cre ativity and not just a representa tion of stoic artistic styles. Although it would have been nice to see more work by full-time faculty members, the exhibit was full of growing talent that Nebraska is ready to harvest. Various Artists “Street Fighter - Soundtrack” Priority Grade: B From the popular video game “Street Fighter II” comes the new Jean-Claude Van Damme movie “Street Fighter.” And from the movie comes the soundtrack, the first soundtrack ever for the hip hop label Priority. Priority makes a splash with its first effort using rap veterans Ice Cube, LL Cool J and Public En emy, as well as rap’s high-powered new jacks Nas and Craig Mack. The album’s high point, how ever, is not from any of these well knowns, but from a trio of rela tively unknowns. “Come Widdit” is the song, and the three are Ahmad, Ras Kass and Saafir. The song has a raw, late 1980s feel with the live scratching and simple chorus chant. Ahmad has the high-pitched voice, and Saafir has the bizarre stop-and-go flow, but Ras Kass’ lyrics blow it away with “Body chemistry consists of Hennessey/Toxic melanin with an adamantium skeleton/Like Wol verine, child, my heart pumps kero sene.” Apart from this exceptional track, nothing on the rest of the album stands out. Ice Cube is solid on the title track, but Public Enemy disappoints on “Rumbo N Da Jungo,” a song introducing the Wreck League. Paris stays well within his style of Black-power hip hop on his track “Street Soldier.” Pharcyde does well on the first single, “Pandemo nium,” but he’s not quite in top form. . Similarly, Nas’ “One On One” and Craig Mack’s “Do You Have What ItTakes?”are good, but could be better. Hammer joins San Francisco 49ers quarterback Deion Sanders on one track. Hammer notwith standing, these songs are worth a listen. “Come Widdit” is almost worth the whole album. —Greg Schick Various Artists “Stolen Moments: Red Hot + Cool” GRP Records Grade: B In its fifth installation, the Red Hot organization has joined jazz and hip-hop artists to raise money for AIDS research. Jazz is no stranger to hip hop. A number of groups have been push ing the edge of creativity, fusing jazz with their rap for several years now. The idea of this album was to place those hip-hop groups and a few other musicians with jazz leg ends. In some cases, the pairings work extremely well. Other times, they fall flat. To start off the album, Red Hot showcases Guru of Gang Starr, a rapper who has often combined jazz and rap. Here he is teamed with Donald Byrd in a very short song, “Time Is Moving On.” For the first time, Guru does not seem to mesh the flow with his choppy delivery. The song is a far cry from his album “Jazzamatazz”, which featured him with different live jazz musicians on every song. Guru is followed by MC Solarr, a French rapper who made his American debut on “Jazzamatazz,” with Ron Carter on bass making “Un Ange En Danger.” One of the disc’s highlights, the song is rapped completely in French. Michael Franti, formerly of Dis posable Heroes of Hiphopracy, and Spearhead join on “Positive,” an AIDS-awareness song that has Franti asking, “How’m I gonna live my life when I’m positive?” Breaking from the hip-hop genre, RedHot paired bassist/singer Me’Shell NdegeOcello with key board king Herbie Hancock. What they came up with was “Nocturnal Sunshine,” a terrific song. NdegeOcello is so impressive that Hancock almost disappears. Another hip-hop crew known for using jazz is Digable Planets. “Flyin’ High In the Brooklyn Sky” is performed with Lester Boie on trumpet and Wah Wah Watson on guitar. The song feels like it could have stepped right off a Planets’ album. Other good tracks include the safe-sex anthem “The Rubbers Song” by the Pharcyde and “Pro ceed II” by the Roots with Roy Ayers. Us3 makes an appearance with Joshua Redman and Tony Remy. But “The Scream” is a far cry from “Cantaloop.” A bonus compact disc is in cluded. The extra disc contains three songs: “ALove Supreme” by Branford Marsalis in a wonderful but long (18 minute) tribute to John Coltrane. Despite the few disappoint ments, “Stolen Moments” is defi nitely worth checking out. —Greg Schick ■ BALLROOM Presents: 6600 West O Street 475-4030 UNL Tae Kwon Do \ Karate \ Club Beginners Welcome Tuesday & Thursday Call Tony :30-9:3#pm 435-1247 j[r : nEssJr'fjjS|ssss Best Western Beach Medium from $509 Condominiums Imperial Las Perlas KInHa Resort/Villas Marlin South Padre Island Off-Beach trom$399 Beach Luxury from $469 Villa Del Sol/Parklane Inverness/Sunchase/Saida Beach Medium from $449 Sheraton from $479 Florence By The Sea Ultimate party location __U-DRIVE from $169 _ food-drinks-parties-T-shirts and extras. —!* operator Vaction Travel I contract for details and Xemems. ine pwjyjw,ypw payment for ground is not subject to these Not included: $31.95 US/foreign departure taxes/fees; airport user fees. n<vn^tfa$3-$12 PFC charges. 1 | 178 Pregnancy 180 Printing & Copying '- 182 Recycling 02 Appliances 163 Religious 05 Bicycles 185 Rentals 10 Books 188 Tanning 13 Clothing 190 Tattooing 16 Computers 193 Travel 20 Furniture 195 Typing & Resumes 30 Jewelry - 40 Misc.
