Panic-star'ed fans wont be able to
see Widespread Panic in Chapel Hill
for a while. But avid followers of the
Athens, Ga.-based band will be able
to see them Wednesday night at The
Brewery in Raleigh.
"We played Chapel Hill's Cat's
Cradle three or four times in the last
year and a half," said Dave Schools,
the band's bassist. ! "But we haven't
played there since this summer
right before they closed."
Although the band likes playing
Chapel Hill and has a good following
in the area, Schools said the band
hasn't been able to find a replacement
club. Instead, Widespread Panic has
scheduled shows in other area towns.
"I guess this is our North Carolina
microtour," Schools said.
Last week Widespread Panic was
in Durham, and this week they play
Winston-Salem and Greenville in
ity, but that that was not why they
were trying to stop CGLA funding.
"My views about homosexuality
are irrelevant to this debate," Hans
said. "It's not about homosexuality,
it's about giving students the right to
choose whether they wish to fund the
CGLA or not. They said they don't."
Krynski said CGLA funding would
not have been a major issue to him
if the group were not political and
didn't attempt to get Student Con
"If you're looking for a homo
phobic person, or a person who
spends sleepless nights hating homo
sexuals, then youVe come to the
wrong person," he said.
Hans said he did not think denying
funds to the CGLA because it is
political would mean funds should be
denied to other groups, such as the
Black Student Movement. "I haven't

addition to Raleigh.
"We're the type of band that people
come to see week after week," Schools
said. "And we try to give a little
something different each time."
Schools said that during its three
hour show, the band often breaks off
into an improvisational jam session
that sparks another set.
"Watching someone jam is like
watching someone make a clay pot,
because-you keep watching it to see ,
what finally comes out. of it," he
Widespread Panic drummer Todd
Nance said most audiences appreciate
the spontaneity of these sets.
"The ones that come to see us over
and over again really like it because
we do it differently each time," Nance
said. "The ones who are seeing us for
the first time might just think it's
boring or part of the show."
On the average, the band plays four
shows a week, mostly in college towns
seen evidence that they (the BSM) are
political," he said. "I don't see the
correlation between a homosexual
group and a black group. They are
two totally different organizations."
Cottingham said Campus Watch
was alerted to the CGLA issue
because of publicity surrounding the
referendum, but Campus Watch has
not reviewed other groups to see if
they are political.
Hans said Student Congress con
tinues to fund the CGLA despite
student opposition to the funding
because the group encourages its
members to run for congress and then
vote for funding.
"This is an example of how they
dominate campus politics," he said.
Krynski said congress probably
does not represent the views of the
majority of students.
"Student governments are usually

in Georgia, South Carolina and
North Carolina, Schools said. ,
"We know what's happening on the
road," he said. "We're probably the
most hard-working band around with
the exception of Love Tractor and
Dreams So i Real, and we did it
without the support of an album."
According to Schools, the four
member band hit the road in 1986
and hasn't stopped touring since. For
Widespread Panic, the band, music
and tours came before the album.
"We basically worked and worked
and worked, and we actually had
several aborted attempts at making
an Lf betore Space wrangler"
That album came out in September
as an accumulation of two and a half
years of original music, Nance said.
For the most part, the band plays
original music that it has yet to

David Fountain, student attorney
general, said he was not familiar with
the resolution and was not sure what
kind of impact it would have.
, John Pope, a member of the Board
of Trustees who called for strong
disciplinary actions against the
CIAAC members, said the resolution
is a good idea but it shouldn't be
necessary to ensure students' rights.
"I dont see why any bill is neces
