Greek houses host a number of parties on Green Key

Alpha Chi Alpha (Friday)

From 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. tonight, the brothers of Alpha Chi will host a keg party with music from Massachusetts ska band SMA. "SMA's infectious, danceable blend of influences include jazz, rock, ska, funk and the elements of fusion," according to The Springfield Union News.

Alpha Delta (Saturday)

Z-Force Action Band will open for Downtime starting at noon tomorrow. Downtime has played this outdoor concert for more than a decade and is back again for Green Key's most famous event, the AD lawn party. At night, Belizbaha will be performing inside from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. for a party with kegs.

Bones Gate (Saturday)

After kicking off the weekend yesterday evening with their Tea Party, the brothers of Bones Gate will be back in action tomorrow night when the band Lo Fi opens for Groovemerchant at their party, which will last from 10 p.m. until 3 a.m., when the doors close.

Chi Gamma Epsilon (Saturday)

"Come as you are to Chi Gam for all the usual Green Key festivities," Social Chair Brian Wachob '98 said. There will be kegs downstairs and black lights on the dance floor for the Saturday night dance party from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with DJ Itchy.

Chi Heorot (Saturday)

The brothers of Heorot will be hosting a party tomorrow night from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. featuring a DJ and dancing, and, oh yeah, kegs.

Delta Gamma (Saturday)

For those of you who want to have fun, and fulfill your weekly requirement of community service at the same time, DG is organizing Anchors Aweigh from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuck Mall tomorrow. The money raised from this event will go the New Hampshire Association for the Blind and the Delta Gamma Foundation (which is committed to conservation of sight and aid to the blind).

Gamma Delta Chi

Gamma Delt is having a closed gathering for brothers and alumni tomorrow night.

Kappa Alpha Psi (Saturday)

If you are tired of drinking and dancing and you want to play cards for a good cause, you can go to the basement of Cutter-Shabazz where the brothers of Kappa Alpha Psi will be hosting a spades tournament to benefit the Kappa Achievement Scholarship. The tournament will begin at 9 p.m. Saturday.

Kappa Delta Epsilon (Saturday)

KDE will be hosting the Dr. Seuss-inspired Green Eggs and Kegs party from noon to 3 p.m. tomorrow afternoon. The event is closed until 1 p.m., so do not try to show up early.

Kappa Kappa Kappa (Saturday)

You can go to Tri-Kap tomorrow night -- you just might not be able to leave. It's Escape from Cell-Block Kappa Night from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. and Social Chair Hai Gi Li '99 said the dance floor, and probably the bar too, will be caged up like a jail cell. "Think of sirens and spot lights," he said.

"Don't expect to leave our grounds until your time is done," Gi Li said.

Phi Tau (Saturday)

It's a day -- and night -- of live music at Phi Tau tomorrow. Dartmouth's own Irish-themed band Finnegan's Wake will play at 3 p.m. to lead off the day.

Then, at 6 p.m., the internationally-acclaimed folk singer Dar Williams will perform. Williams has toured and duetted with Joan Baez and the Indigo Girls. "Her music is sweet and melodic, her lyrics are intelligent, poignant and witty, and she's fantastic live," Social Chair Carla Emmons '97 said. "[She is] the preeminent voice in contemporary folk."

Programming Board (Saturday)

The Programming Board is sponsoring Green Key: Island Style from noon to 4 p.m. tomorrow. The activities include the band Lambsbread -- a genuine reggae group -- a moon bounce, pedestal joust, free throws, tie-dying, tattoos (they didn't say so, but these will probably be fake too) and face-painting.

The 1999 and 2000 Class Councils will also be organizing a tug of war at 2 p.m. on the Green.

Psi Upsilon (Friday)

The Burlington band, Spastic, is back at Psi U tonight from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. with their mix of funk, ska and blues. "They've sold out everywhere from Mama Kin's in Boston to New York's Wetlands, and after bringing down the house this past Winter Carnival they return on Green Key for one more show," Social Chair Daniel O'Neill '99 said.

Sigma Nu (Friday)

The brothers of Sigma Nu will be having their traditional early '80s party tonight. It is closed until midnight and invites will be strictly enforced, so if you do not have an invitation you can go, but they will not let you in. After midnight, the party will be open until 3 a.m. and, for those invitees arriving late, the invitation will get you to the front of what Social Chair Jess McCarter '99 promises will be a long line for the rest of the night.

Sigma Phi Epsilon (Saturday)

Sig-Ep will be having its traditional Green Key party tomorrow night, complete with smooth beverages and DJ Janner. Social Chair Alex Kline '99 said, "There's something for everyone behind the Big Red Door."

The Tabard (Friday)

Campus band Groovemerchant will be playing at the Tabard tonight.

Theta Delta Chi (Friday)

Theta Delt will be having a private Jerry Jeff Walker concert this afternoon for brothers and alumni.

Zeta Psi (Friday)

What could be more fun than drinking and dancing to celebrate the birthday of a loved one -- especially when he's a dog? And what better tribute to departing friends then having a party in their memory.

For those who are not worn out from celebrating Zete's dog Mac's second birthday at the Snips, Snails and Puppy Dog Tails party Thursday night, you can come back for more tonight from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. when the senior brothers say farewell to DJ Lou Fucci and house dog Mackenzie.
