In the dim light of the Blackbox, students walked into the theatre, filling the seats and waiting for the Love Stinks themed Coffeehouse to begin on Thurs., Feb. 16. At the door, Bullseye members sold tickets and handed out candy and handmade “anti-valentines” – inside of which were sarcastic remarks that said, “you’ve got game…just no friends” and “let’s be friends…I can be your first!”
Once the show started, they had performances by Two Guys on Stools – which consisted of seniors Trevor Stokes and Daulton Matting, solo artist, senior Konnor Frazier, and the band Solace consisting of seniors Manuel Gonzalez and Joseph B. Huerta. All played acoustic covers like “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and creative originals.
They also unveiled the Bullseye Photo and Poetry contest winners that will have their photos and original poems published in the Bullseye Magazine to come out this Spring. First place photo winners were: Paige Reeves – Color Division, Adam Rodriguez – Black and White Division, and Daniel Delarosa – Digitally Enhanced Division.
The Bullseye Club also incorporated audience participation by having a sign up sheet for last minute presentations of a talent or art that anyone had to share. Senior Justice Lovin and freshman Mavis Maharaj-Escobedo recited original poetry, senior Taylor Johnson sang “Sittin’ on the Dock Of the Bay” by Otis Redding, and at the urge of his friends, senior Alec Grey spontaneously told jokes.
Bullseye’s next up coming event will be Battle of the Bands which is expected in March. If you’re in a band or know someone in a band, go to room C251 and sign up to rock out!
