We look forward to Cine/Spin, Cal student DJs spinning to silent films, every spring semester and expect this one to be the best yet!—BAM/PFA Student Committee

Cine/Spin, our student DJ extravaganza, is back and making tracks, train tracks in the form of Buster Keaton's The General. Set during the Civil War, this silent film comedy known for its loco motion has Keaton as a Confederate railway engineer in hot pursuit of his much-adored train, General, stolen by Union soldiers. Our squad of DJ accompanists won't be whistling Dixie when they begin bombarding The General with some twenty-first century tracks of their own. Several silent slapstick shorts will sidetrack the evening with more DJ derailments. This slaphappy event will have slapstick activities and refreshments—expect a great punch. Steve Seid
