Lafayette Activities Forum has provided a host of entertainment for the upcoming weekend, including two concerts, a film, and a game show that will award two tickets to the Bahamas.

The weekend starts with the movie sequel The Mummy Returns, which will be shown on a large screen at March Field 8 p.m. Friday.

Later that evening, the Gilbert’s Coffeehouse Series will begin with a 10 p.m. concert by One Handed Molly. “One Handed Molly’s Derek Stenborg and Gregory Rogers tell stories with their hands, weaving a musical tapestry of guitar and drums that cannot help but convey the sheer joy of playing their instruments,” according to LAF. “That, coupled with Sadie James’ unique, powerful voice and poetic tales, has made One Handed Molly one of New York’s most talented, passionate bands.”

Outcast – inspired by the “Survivor” TV show — will pit “tribes” of students dressed in island gear against one another in challenging and amusing contests 8 p.m. Saturday in the Farinon Atrium. Designed to entertain the audience as well as contestants, the event starts with team challenges and progresses to individual competition. The audience will vote contestants off the panel, helping determine the winner. Raffle tickets for prospective contestants are being sold in the Farinon Atrium at lunch this week.

Later that evening, Andrew Dykers will perform 10 p.m. at Gilbert’s. “The No. 1 new music act of the college circuit in 2000 with over 130 schools played, and the No. 2 music act of the NACA National Convention overall, Andrew Dykers has created a musical tour de force with his rich vocals and empowering, poetic lyrics and music that is a soulful blend of jazz, folk, and everyday life,” according to LAF. “His youthful musical abilities have led writers to make such statements as a ‘major case of be-bopping, bust your butt music,’ as well as lofty comparisons to such greats as Marvin Gaye and Dave Matthews Band, Edwin McCain, The Verve Pipe, Sister Hazel, The Doobie Brothers, Shawn Mullins and other national acts.”
