The Connells tumed the Raleigh
Civic Center “Upside Down” as they
sang to a nearly full house on Sep
Raleigh fans were more than
ready to reunite with this hometown
band for their only Raleigh show
The Connells spent their sum
mer on tour around the U.S. to pro
mote their first album to receive
national attention, “Fun and Games.”
Even though they have received
a lot of attention nationwide, they
still seemed like the boys next door.
Guitarist Mike Connell smiled
demurely at the crowd as lead singer
Doug McMillan (known to be quite
a ham) slimked across the stage and
entertained the audience by tossing
back a glow-in-the-dark Frisbee.
“I’ll take it home and add it to my
collection of glow-in-the-dark
things.” MacMillan said as the Fris

Artwork on Display
in Johnson Hall
by: Susan Cartrette
Through October 20, the
Johnson Hall rotunda will house
works by Nancy A. Lloyd and Ho
race L. Farlowe.
Lloyd’s watercolors are im
pressive as she uses lines and bands
of color to convey movement and
dimension. The mostly pastel or
anges and yellows are broken by
streaks of primary colors. She also
uses white to intrude, especially in
“Stormy Italian Skies.”
Farlowe’s sculptures are char
acterized by spatial openings and
roundness. His “Painted Spanish
Black Marble” is appealing with its
facial qualities of a protruding jaw
and an eye.
