Tiësto lit up Boston’s Royale nightclub on Monday. Tiësto, world-renowned for trance and electronic music, is currently on a U.S. tour and mixed live in Boston from April 4–6 for thousands of techno fans. Recently voted “The Greatest DJ Of All Time,” Tiësto is one of a number of artists in the growing electronic music industry. The Royale crowd was young and energetic, the music was amazing, and the lights and dancers kept everyone entertained for hours.



On Sunday, April 17, 20 teams participated in Zeta Psi’s “Dine & Dash” event to raise money for the Red Cross Pacific Tsunami Relief. Teams consisted of four runners, each of whom had to run a lap of the outdoor track, eat a cheeseburger from UBurger, and run another lap. The top finish was Phi Sigma with a time of 18 minutes 24 seconds. Zeta Psi raised $2,650 at the event. Fraternities, sororities, and clubs came out in support of the event, some humorously. The MIT Drama Club carried a giraffe as they ran, and members of the Aero-Disastro Course 16.5 Club juggled and unicycled their way around the track.
