Lafayette Campus News (, October 19, 2001 – A multimedia look at a decade in rock music, a movie, and a double dose of poetry are part of the weekend’s entertainment sponsored by Lafayette Activities Forum (LAF).

Barry Drake, one of rock music’s foremost historians, will use hundreds of slides and musical selections to give a history of 1980s rock 8 p.m. today in the Farinon Center Limburg Theater.

The film Bridget Jones’ Diary will play in the Limburg Theater 7 and 10 p.m. tonight and tomorrow, and 10 p.m. Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Admission costs $2. Other upcoming films include The Silence of the Lambs, Oct. 26-30, and Hannibal, Nov. 2-6.

Beau Sia and Derek Chase will present “Colors,” giving their opinions on “culture, politics, and life in general” through poetry 8 p.m. tomorrow in the Kirby Sports Center atrium. Sia, a 24-year-old Asian American, touches on fame, money, sex, megalomania, and Asian cultural stereotypes. She has appeared in the documentary “Slamnation” and the feature film Slam. She is scheduled to appear in Russell Simmons’ “Def Poetry Jam.” “Also, Sia rocked the ESPN X-Games this year with his offbeat promos,” according to LAF. “Sia’s clever words stream in deadpan delivery like some urban targeted collaboration between Mike Judge and Steven Wright.”
