It's the last round of rehearsals, and the stage crew in Moore Theater is finishing up the last touches to the set. On the stage are large black-and-white panels depicting iconic figures from the last few decades.

Ten-time Grammy award-winning vocal phenomenon Bobby McFerrin highlighted his residence as a Montgomery Fellow at the College with a stunning solo concert at the Hopkins Center on Tuesday evening.
When Mikey Saladik '06 and Elliott May '06 are not screaming "Huck!" while running bare-chested with doe-like grace alongside other ultra-lush ultimate-Frisbee-playing golden gods (merely a very condensed paraphrasing of the general consensus of freshmen girls), they can probably be found dancing naked to "Dance Naked" (John Mellencamp) or other such ultimate-appropriate-sounding music.
Dartmouth students have never been particularly well known for playing by the rules, so when Keggy debuted last fall as the Big Green's unofficial mascot, he fit in perfectly.
When the beats to your favorite song start booming at a party, it is probably not the serendipitous coincidence that you think it is. Your happily inebriated squeals of delight should be directed at the men, and the woman, behind the turntables. She knows what you want, and she delivers.
In one of the most impressive concerts to hit Collis Commonground this year, Matt Nathanson and opener Blu Sanders performed Saturday night to an enthusiastic audience.
