Dave Coulier Comedy Act
Hosted by Buctainment as part of ETSU’s Giggles and Glee Weekend, Dave Coulier will perform his touring stand-up comedy act at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1, in the D.P. Culp University Center Auditorium. Coulier is best known for his role as Joey Gladstone from the popular 90’s sitcom “Full House,” which ran for eight seasons and is still shown regularly through syndicated reruns on Nick at Nite and many other channels. Now, when he is not guest starring on Netflix’s rebooted series “Fuller House,” he travels the country telling jokes and bringing joy to thousands of people, and Buctainment says they are excited to welcome him to ETSU.
Paramount Chamber Players concert
The Paramount Chamber Players are a premier music ensemble in East Tennessee, performing regularly in the Tri-Cities area. To celebrate their 12th year together as a group, the Paramount Chamber Players present a touring concert series of Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons” and Piazzolla’s work of the same name. They will be performing on ETSU’s campus at Mathes Hall on Saturday, Oct. 1 at 7:30 p.m. Members of the ensemble include Luis Casal on viola, Dr. Craig W. Combs on piano, Vicki Fey on harpsicord, George Figueroa on violin, Cherylonda Fitzgerald on cello, Kimbery Maternik-Piret and Thomas Maternik-Piret of Colpi d’arco. Tickets for the show are free for students with ID and $15 for general admission.
“Stop Kiss” play
“Stop Kiss” is the first of two stage productions being produced this semester by ETSU’s Department of Theatre and Dance. The play, written by Diana Son and directed by graduate student Opal Clark (whose work on the play will act as a component of her thesis), will be performed by ETSU students at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 2 and 7:30 p.m. from Oct. 3-7 in studio 205 of Campus Center Building. Tickets to the production are $5 for students, faculty and staff with ID and $10 for general admission. Box office will open one hour prior to each show, and the doors will open 30 minutes prior.
Pridewalk Street Painting
Hosted by SGA, the Pride Walk Street Painting is an activity at ETSU for which campus organizations take part in giving some color to a street sidewalk running through the center of campus every semester. Each organization is in charge of painting a designated portion of the street with a design of their choosing — so long as it represents their organization and the year’s civility theme. This fall, the theme is “super homecoming;” so, we can expect to see a lot of capes and vibrant colors once the event is over. Perhaps the street itself will favor a comic strip! Recognition will be given to organizations with the best art. The Pridewalk Street Painting will last all day on Sunday, Oct. 2.
Soul’d Out at The Willow Tree
Three music groups team up for this concert, dubbed “Soul’d Out,” at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 7 at the Willow Tree Coffeehouse and Music Room in downtown Johnson City. The bands include the local rock and soul band The Real Life Heavies, the JV Squad (an R&B/soul group) and Earth By Train (who primarily perform Americana Jam). According to the official Facebook page of the Willow Tree, “This triple threat show has taken a while to get together and will definitely be worth the wait.” The event, which is expected to last late into the night, is free and open to the public.
