4 The Daily Tar Heel Friday. November 11,
Nightshift premieres tonight
at the The Mad Ha tier
Nightshift, a new band with familiar
faces, will perform at The Mad Hatter
nightclub Friday and Saturday in
downtown Chapel Hill.
Featuring tight vocal harmonies and
upbeat rhythm and blues, Nightshift soon
should have an impact as a significant
musical force on the North Carolina
The personnel list reads like a who's
who in past popular local bands:
"Grateful Ed" lbarguen (pronounced l-bar-gwen)
from South Wing on lead
guitar; Tim Hildebrandt, founder of
Heartwood, on rhythm guitar and vocals;
Jim Mitchell, drummer from Bro T
Holla, sharing lead vocals with the
dynamic Carter Minor, former lead
singer for Heartwood and Lagniappe;
Joe "the Duke" DeLuca from Gravy Boat
on bass; and Bill Butler from Heartwood
It may be difficult to fix a simple label
to Nightshirt's music.
"We play a funky type of rhythm and
blues," says Jim Mitchell. "The music is
more danceable and the vocals are much
better than in South Wing," adds Ed

I jCarter Minor and Jim Mitchell team
up vocally for a stunning Sam and Dave
medley straight from the old Stax Revue.
Tim H ildebrandt, a prolific songwriter in
the Heartwood days, adds depth and
variety with different vocal tones and
harmonious ballad material.
Fans of the old bands will perceive
quickly that Nightshift is not really like
any of the old bands.
"We don't play country rock," says
Tim. Actually, Nightshift compensates
for most of the flaws which led to the
demise of South Wing. Bro T Holla and
M itchell and DeLuca provide a driving
bottom end on drums and bass. Ed
lbarguen continues to evolve into one of
the top lead guitarists in the state. With
Bill Butler anchoring the vocals to a deep,
resonant bass and everyone singing
harmonies, Nightshift hits the audience
w it h a "wall of sound" reminiscent of Phil
Spector groups in the early sixties.
For Nightshift the emphasis will be on
precision and taste. "Sometimes, it's what
you leave out that marks a truly great
band." savs Joe DeLuca.

director of UNC Security Services; Ben

student judicial system and the legal

"The purpose of the conference is to
provide an opportunity for students to
learn how to improve programming in a
residence hall." said Bain Jones,
president of the Carolina RHA.
Jones said about 100 persons from 19
schools other than UNC are expected
for the conference. In addition, 45
Carolina students will attend.

Bright autumn colors
foil dullness predictions
Motorists traveling along one of the
perimeter roads of Chape) H ill on a late
afternoon this fall were probably bedazzled
by the colors of the surrounding hills.
But earlier this year, some scientists were
saying the colors of leaves would be dulled
by dry summer weather. As local trees have
evidenced, the prediction fell with the
Prof. Willie Koch of the botany
department says the leaves were "more
spectacular than ever."
The faulty prediction was made by several
National Park Service representatives who
said the colorations would suffer from the
high summer temperatures and the scant
However, the dry conditions may actually
have heightened the colors, according to
Cliff Parks, a UNC botany professor.
Certain conditions are required for leaves
to attain the deep colors they did this year,
Nights must be cold without producing
frost; clear, bright days are needed so the

terms of the contract, the surcharge
money goes to the cab company.
"It's not a large expense as far as
the city is concerned, but of course it
will increase as the ridership
increases," he said.

Paul Arne, who had strongly
recommended dropping the
surcharge at the transportation
board meeting Nov. I, said he was
not surprised at the decision.

"While there was little rainfall this
summer, Chapel Hill did get sufficient
rainfall in late September and early October
to meet these conditions," Parks said. "What

Parks said the drought put stress on the
leaves' pigments, especially the red ones,
enhancing them further. He said that the red
hues this fall are extraordinarily bright.
Koch doubted from the start the
predictions that the leaves would not be as
colorful this year.
"It just didn't sound right to me," the
professor said. "There's no specific reason
for my doubts except that last fall was just as
pretty with the same conditions."
"There's really not that much known oh
the subject," Koch said, "but their
predictions were obviously not true. Just
look at the colors."

Temple said he believes this is the
last modification the system will
undergo. A requirement that riders
call an hour in advance of their
desired pick-up time previously had
been dropped because of complaints
about the inconvenience.

done," Temple said.
