Recess Calendar


The Dave Matthews Cover Band * No, DMB will not be gracing the campus with its presence this weekend (it's not the last day of classes, and it's not 1999). But a Dave cover band will perform Saturday on Clocktower Quadrangle, and word is, if you close your eyes, you won't even tell it's not the real McCoy. The show is sponsored by Major Attractions, an arm of the Duke University Union. In case of rain or cold weather, the show will be moved inside to the old Hideaway location. 2 to 4:30pm. Free to the general public.

Cable 13 * Your favorite Duke cable station is holding its annual telethon Saturday. Scheduled to appear in live performances are a capella groups, improv comedy, a martial arts demonstration, dancers and sports interviews. Students are invited to go down to the station (located in the greenhouse behind the Bryan Center) and watch or call in to the show at 684-6006. 10am to 11pm. For info:
