Chorallarues menu vulgar, but well sung

The Chorallaries, Concert in Bad Taste, Saturday, March 9 in 10-250.

Room 10-250 was packed to the gills for the Chorallaries special brand of sweet-voiced vulgarity. Before the concert could start a mild political war between the Gumbies and those endorsing Stove and Cat for UAP broke out. Although the Stove and Cat supporters took the initiative, the Gumbies seemed to take control by sheer numbers.

As an introduction, the Chorallaries made it clear that they intended to insult just about every facet of the MIT community they could. They managed this well. The audience seemed to especially like hearing the MIT administration belittled in prose and song. In fact the only way the Chorallaries were able to get away with what they said was that they sang it so nicely.

Although no one attending the concert took the advice given on the poster to "come dressed as your favorite birth-control device," the Chorallaries themselves provided enough gaudiness for the entire audience. Costumes ranged from slinky to spacey -- all in appropriately bad taste.

The Logarhythms took their traditional opportunity to interrupt the concert in absentia. And the concert finished with the traditional twenty minutes of "encores." Concert goers were reminded about the upcoming Spring Sing. Additionally, the Chorallaries will be releasing an album very soon. The Chorallaries have enjoyed support from the MIT community, and if they continue to receive support it will be no great surprise to this reporter.
