March 18 announcements

Well, other than the Hannah Free house party on Saturday and the plays Vamp and Cloud 9 there are some other things going on this weekend.

-------------

All you hardcore goth and punk queers can check out the New Thrill Parade tonight at the Glass Nickel Pizza, 2916 Atwood Ave. These boys from the Bay Area often carry the “goth” tag, but their new album, Slumber in Colorland, has lots of post-punk overtone and the drummer (and recent Butt magazine cover star) Troy Delaney commands most of the attention. The doors are at 10:00 and Madison bands, Loop Retard and Sylvia Beach open.

A new same-sex parents group begins tomorrow night at outreach – Madison LGBT center at 600 Williamson Street. The group meets at 6pm and is for any same sex parent or couples planning to become one? The group will talk, laugh and learn from one another. Children are welcome to come with parents but are not necessary for attendance. The group will meet the third Thursday of the month call 255-8582 and ask for harry for more information.

Good news this week for the Dairyland Cowboys and Cowgirls. It seems the popularity of their Monday night dance lessons has created a demand for more advanced level dancing.

Beginning on April 3, Friday nights from 6pm to 10pm at club 5 will be for country dance. All levels of dancers are encouraged to come. For more information go to dcandc.org for more information.
