Ani DiFranco March 5th

Singer/songwriter Ani DiFranco was considered a “folk punk” artist when she recorded her first albums in 1997 and ’98. Her style and message got her nominated for “Best Female Rock Vocal Performance” at the Grammys both years. Driven by social activism and a restless creativity, she continually leads herself and her listeners into ever more exciting territory. Touring with a five-piece band, Ani DiFranco comes to the Rio Theatre in Santa Cruz Wednesday, March 5th. Showtime is 8 pm.


Takin’ Calls, Dodgin’ Balls: The KZSC Dodgeball Team

Hey sports listeners,

We’ve been hyping this up on Slugtalk for a while now and it’s finally started. That’s right, many months in the making, the KZSC Dodgeball Team has finally come into fruition. After three weeks into the intramural season, the team, made up of various KZSC governing board, staff, and volunteer members has accrued a 2-1 record and we’re still going strong. Come out to our games, Tuesday nights between 8-10PM at the West Field House at College 8. We’d love your support and maybe you can throw a few balls at us as well.
