Just received word from Nat Kramer, the former host of Radio 1190's Rude Awakening morning show, who's also a co-founder of the Media Production Consortium, that Negativland -- the San Franciso-based band best known for its widely-publicized tiff with U2 -- will be playing two back-to-back shows on Tuesday, December 2, and Wednesday, December 3, at Old Main Theatre on the CU campus. The performances are free and open to the public and will be preceded by a two-hour "radio show sample opera" hosted by the members of Negativland. Space is limited and doors are at 7:30 p.m. on both nights. -- Dave Herrera
