A James Bond movie, a student play, standup comedy, live rock music, and varsity athletics are part of the entertainment options on campus this weekend.

Lafayette Activities Forum will screen the Bond film Die Another Day 7 and 10 p.m. today and Saturday, and 10 p.m. Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday in Limburg Theater of Farinon College Center. Admission is $2 or free of charge for students attending with their resident adviser. The movie’s plot: Gustav Graves (Toby Stephens) is an evil mastermind in a lair made entirely of ice in Iceland. Along with his henchman Zao (Rick Yune), Graves has developed an incredibly powerful weapon. Beginning in Korea, James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) travels around the globe looking for the megalomaniac, and while doing so, meets up with Jinx (Halle Berry) and Miranda Frost (Rosamund Pike).

The College Theater production of Mother Courage and Her Children, which opened Wednesday, continues its run at the Williams Center for the Arts 8 p.m. tonight and Saturday. Tickets cost $6.

LAF will present the comedy of CoCoa Brown 10 p.m. today in the Farinon Center Snack Bar. Within six months of her comedy career’s start a few years ago, Brown was crowned DC’s Comedian of the Year, beating out several seasoned professionals. Within nine months, she won the spot to open the Def Comedy Jam Tour at the Warner Theater. “It was the hunger, the need to be one of the guys and be treated like an equal,” says Brown. “I’ve always been a nut, but being on the stage allows me to take it to another level.”

A Swing Dance Party will take place tonight from 11 p.m.- 2 a.m. in the Marlo Room of Farinon College Center. “All dancers are welcome, from stumblers to showoffs,” note the event sponsors, Recreation Services and the Lafayette Arts Society.

The women’s rugby club will practice 11 a.m. Saturday at Metzgar Fields.

Indiana-based band Paging Raymond will perform 10 p.m. Saturday at Gilbert’s. The band describes its sound as “undeniable melodic hooks, sweet vocal harmonies, lyrics that get beneath your skin and make themselves at homeTake the pop sensibility of Barenaked Ladies, the raw emotion of Counting Crows, the harmonies of the Jayhawks, and the amazing lyricism of Ryan Adams, shake well, and you have Paging Raymond.” The Indianapolis Star wrote, “Paging Raymond plays a basic, but rarely bland, variety of roots music.” The concert is sponsored by LAF.

After a couple of postponements and a home game Wednesday against East Stroudsburg, the baseball team will host Hofstra noon Sunday at Metzgar Fields. An article previewing the season is available on Lafayette’s web site.
