UA prof compiles positive communication RACHEL MCCLUSKEY Arizona Daily Wildcat

A UA assistant professor of communication has compiled the first scholarly works on positive communication in her field. Margaret Pitts, an assistant professor in the UA Department of Communication, compiled two books over the course of four years. The first book was released in late 2012, the other in January. Previously, communication research had focused on the darker side of communication, such as lying and troubled relationships, but now the communication field is moving to center on more positive aspects. “This is a real shift in direction in

terms of now saying, ‘What about communication can make your life better?’ and ‘What are people who are doing really well, how is their communication working for them?’” said Chris Segrin, head of the Department of Communication. “So that is a real shift in direction, intellectually, to a greater sense of positivity.” Positive communication is dedicated to messages that enhance health and relationships and organizations, communication that is facilitative of happiness and well-being, Pitts said. The works have been well-received because the scholars that contributed are important people in the field, Pitts explained. In the epilogue of the book, primary scholars who focus on the dark side of communication responded to

the research presented. “Basically they read the book and they said, ‘Yeah, this is good stuff,’” Pitts said. “I think what we mutually agreed is that you can’t study the dark side without focusing on the bright side.” The study of positive communication began in the ’90s, with much of the research taking place within the field of psychology, Pitts said. “Psychology was the big move forward toward positivity, seeing the positivity in life and asking the questions about what makes people succeed [and] what makes people feel good,” Pitts explained. “Rather than looking at what’s wrong with people, like we often do in the medical field — for example, when you go to a doctor, [you’re asked] what’s


POSITIVE COMMUNICATION is gaining prominence in academia with the work of Margaret Pitts, an assistant professor in the UA Department of Communication. Positive communication enhances relationships, Pitts said.

A new UA website will help raise awareness about energy consumption in the residence halls. EcoPower, which was launched last Friday, is an interactive website that allows students to measure the average amount of energy they use in their residence halls. The website was set up by the UA Residence Life Sustainability Program as part of its campaign for a greener campus. Funding for the site came from the UA Green Fund, which allocates an estimated $400,000 a year to projects on campus through its annual grants and mini-grants programs. “I’m personally really excited about the website,” said Natalie Lucas, director of Students for Sustainability and an environmental science senior also studying philosophy, politics, economics, and law. “It’s really cool because it’s really interactive and I think it can be a really effective site for people to see how much energy their everyday actions take up.” The site gives an interactive view of a standard dorm room or office and allows the user to explore the room by clicking on different electronics to learn how much energy they use and how much money it costs the university.

Student union undergoes ‘spring cleaning’ RACHEL MCCLUSKEY Arizona Daily Wildcat

While students are enjoying spring break, the Student Union Memorial Center will be bustling as it undergoes renovations worth $1 million. The Meal Plans Office, CatCard Office and post office will move from the second level of the student union down to the first to create a business center. Wells Fargo will move downstairs as well, to where the computer lab is currently. The Office of

Student Computing Resources’ computer lab will move to the space that is currently the games room. The games room will remain, but in a smaller space. Meanwhile, the current locations of Wells Fargo and the post office will be transformed into seating areas as of March 18, when construction is due to be completed. New restaurants coming in August will occupy the places where the Meal Plans Office and CatCard Office currently reside. The renovation will cost roughly $1 million, according to Todd Millay, Arizona

Student Unions marketing manager. A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place on March 21 and on March 22 prize drawings will be held to give current CatCard holders a chance to win prizes, such as an autographed basketball. “I think a lot of it is that a lot of people assume that the CatCard Office and the Meal Plans Office are one office anyways, so it kind of makes sense for us to be in the same area, and so it’s a one-stop shop,” said Amanda Percy, office supervisor for Arizona Student Unions. “I know that they wanted to

create more seating on the main floor and more dining options, so we are freeing up the space.” Ari Goldstein, a business sophomore, agreed that the business center is a good idea. “They kind of go hand in hand, because you can attach your CatCard to your Wells Fargo account, so it’s good that they are both together,” Goldstein said. “I’m completely for that.” Other students shared his enthusiasm and said they were pleased to hear the news

for students on campuses,” said Jennifer Hoefle-Olsen, the program director for LGBTQ Affairs. Hoefle-Olsen’s office isn’t directly involved with the exhibit and panel discussion, but she said she is excited for Thursday’s event because while civil rights are taught in schools across the nation, the LGBT rights movement is often not included. “There’s a rich history to learn, and just because people

One survey was a series of interviews between mothers and daughters in which one of the pair had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Positive communication was studied within the interviews to determine

whether it hurt or helped the relationship. It was discovered that an excess of positive communication without regard to reality seemed to hurt the relationship, because it didn’t engage the other person’s feelings. As for the next step, Pitts said she and a few other scholars are working on a handbook to show the development and future of positive communication. The two volumes are still new to the communication field, but Segrin said he thinks they will be well-received. “They will really draw a lot of people’s attention to this area, so I’m very excited about them,” Segrin said.

Users can adjust how much different appliances are used, including overhead lights, hair dryers, music players, laptops, televisions and many other items, to fit their personal energy consumption habits. The page then adds up the total cost of the user’s energy use to show if they use more or less energy than the average person. The results also tell the user the specific amount of energy they use per month, the monthly cost and the top three items they have that use the most energy. Students can then share their results on Facebook. “I think I would attempt it and see what questions it asked me,” said Chelsea Wernik, a communication freshman who lives in the dorms. “I personally know I’m guilty of leaving my lights on and honestly anything to try and help that issue would work.” EcoPower also shows students how much energy their residence hall is using and the amount of energy the entire university is using. Along with raising awareness about the amount of energy each student uses in the dorms, the website also offers tips on how to reduce energy consumption, for example, by turning lights off when leaving and using a laptop rather than a desktop computer. “I think these kinds of technologies really become effective when you have them integrated into programming that engages students,” said Joseph Abraham, director of sustainability for Residence Life. “You build this tool and then you start incorporating it into the program that’s already developed.” This website is just one of many tools that UA Residence Life is using to encourage students to practice sustainability. The university’s EcoReps are students who promote green practices in Residence Life throughout the year by creating recycling and energy consumption competitions between the dorms. These competitions award prizes to the dorm that recycles the most or uses the least amount of energy during the specified time. Recycle Mania, one of these competitions, is occurring right now. At least one EcoRep lives in each dorm on campus, and they will all help promote the use of the new website. Residence Life is also looking to partner with some professors and departments to integrate the website into classroom curricula and homework assignments. “It saves the university money as well as helps protect the environment, and those are two really, really important things,” Lucas said, “and so I think the ultimate goal is to get students to think how their behavior affects those two factors and then also how we can limit those as much as possible.”

UA loses residence hall, regains sorority house Whitney Burgoyne Arizona Daily Wildcat

Alpha Chi Omega sorority will return to the UA this fall after leaving campus in 2009 due to a decline in membership. Students expressed interest in the absent sorority through emails, questions to members visiting campus and an online interest form created by the Greek Life office. As a result, the Alpha Chi Omega headquarters decided to recolonize and form a new chapter on the campus, according to Courtney Schmidt, assistant director of chapter growth for Alpha Chi Omega. The colony will celebrate its new members on Sept. 8, after Alpha Chi Omega’s colonization week. After the colony is formed, an eight-week new member education process will teach the

new members about Alpha Chi Omega’s history, founders and why they support domestic violence awareness. Following this process, the colony will attain the status of an official chapter. Alpha Chi Omega’s former chapter house is located between Delta Chi and Phi Gamma Delta on First Street. The house is now an allwomen dorm known as Parker House. The sorority will not take back the house until the fall of 2014 because future UA students have already requested to live there or are committed to living in the dorm next semester. The university is leasing the Parker House from Alpha Chi Omega, according to Alex Blandeburgo, director of facilities for Residence Life. The construction of the two newest residence halls on campus, Arbol de la Vida and Likins residence halls, have added enough housing for students that the university won’t suffer from the loss of 49 bed spaces, he added. Combined, the two campus dorms offer 1,088 bed spaces. Alpha Chi Omega members will be living off-campus in individual housing until they can move back into the official house. Chapter meetings will temporarily be held in the Student Union Memorial Center until the house is reacquired. “Panhellenic has been really supportive. They’ve really done so much to make sure we’ve felt welcomed on campus — that’s not always the case for a new chapter joining,” Schmidt said. “We’ve had members of fraternities and members of sororities come up and introduce themselves and welcome us. It’s just really nice to get the feeling of welcome and I can’t wait for our new members to feel that when they join as well.”

As for the potential restaurants, none have been named yet, but there are some ideas floating around. “They are out for bid,” Percy said. “I think one of them is hopefully going to be a sushi location; the other one is tobe-determined.”

Author questions Tucson shooting Ryan Revock Arizona Daily Wildcat

An author accused Pima Community College of failing to prevent Jared Loughner from committing the Tucson shooting two years ago. Pima Community College “has a lot to answer for” in regard to the Jan. 8, 2011, shooting that involved then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, said author Tom Zoellner at the UofA Bookstore on Wednesday. The event, which was put on by the UA Confluence: Center for Creative Inquiry, focused on Zoellner’s book “A Safeway in Arizona: What the Gabrielle Giffords Shooting Tells Us About the Grand Canyon State and Life in America.” Loughner, who pled guilty to 19 charges of murder and attempted murder from Jan. 8, 2011, is a former student of Pima Community College who was expelled due to his mental instability. Zoellner told attendees the college should have done more. “If Pima Community College had thought to warn the courts or outside law enforcement agencies that Jared Loughner clearly met the legal test, this is in the Arizona law, of persistently or acutely disabled,” Zoellner said, reading from his book, “and if not an active threat to himself or others he probably would have to appear before a county judge and been unable to buy that firearm.” Instead, the college sent Loughner a letter saying that he couldn’t return to school until he had been medically cleared. “In my view that [expelling Loughner and not notifying the authorities] is sort of externalizing the problem to the community and a judge really ought to have been notified that, ‘Here is someone who is presenting threatening behavior,’” Zoellner said. “Arizona law, which actually is progressive in this area compared to other states, allowed them to do that, and in my view, why didn’t they?” Zoellner is the author of five nonfiction books. A former reporter for The Arizona Republic, he also worked on the 2010 Giffords campaign and is currently an associate professor at Chapman University. “We [Confluence: Center for Creative Inquiry] see this event as an opportunity to partner with the bookstore and bring renowned authors such as Mr. Zoellner to talk about the experience of writing a book that is linked very, very closely to our community,” said Javier Duran, director of the Confluence: Center for Creative Inquiry. “That documents the tragic events that happened in Tucson but also offers the perspective in terms of how a writer sees the community.” The book was published on the one-year anniversary of the 2011 shootings and was written in 100 days, according to Zoellner. “There are many issues that we can all think about, from gun control to how this whole incident brought the Tucson community closer together,” said Maria Aguayo Telles, program coordinator for the Confluence: Center for Creative Inquiry, “and that still tells us that there are so many things that we as a community still need to work on — without forgetting even Mr. Loughner had problems and issues that perhaps he could have been helped with, and sometimes with our busy Tyler Besh/arizona Daily Wildcat schedules and lives we Tom Zoellner spoke about his book forget that others need on the Jan. 8 Tucson shooting at the UofA Bookstore on Wednesday. our help.”

Elections code in need of reform


here are “definitely a lot of loopholes” in ASUA elections, ASUA Sen. Bryan Namba told the Daily Wildcat earlier this week. That’s an understatement. This campaign season has seen mass emails from presidential candidate Dylan Duniho. There have been anonymous emails to the Daily Wildcat about text messages offering fraternity members alcohol in exchange for campaign support. There have been Facebook messages about “library hopping” to boost votes, a practice linked to presidential candidate Morgan Abraham (though he denies involvement). None of the executive vice president candidates successfully fulfilled the requirements to run in the general election, and some officials have challenged the legitimacy of their campaigns. You may be wondering why no candidate has been disqualified. The reason? A vaguely worded elections code. Election regulation operates on a three-strike system. The only way a candidate can get a strike is if they violate a campaign rule explicitly laid out in the elections code (the word “library” is not used once in the code). If violations aren’t specifically addressed by the code, discretionary action can be taken by the elections commissioner. Since most violations aren’t specified by the code — like all of the violations this semester — a lot of warnings are issued. That’s not how a three-strike system works. The whole point of a threestrike system is that your first two strikes are your warnings. It’s also not very difficult for a candidate to violate a rule a second time. An inconsequential warning would be a small price to pay for the number of votes you could get roaming through the library and approaching students about your campaign. There’s a reason that we see the same violations every year. Candidates will do whatever it takes to ensure they are elected. It’s up to the elections code, however, to hold candidates to a higher ethical standard. Since accusations began making headlines, several ASUA officials, including Elections Commissioner Leo Oppenheimer, have acknowledged that the elections code is flawed. “I think there needs to be a lot that needs to be looked at to be changed,” Oppenheimer said. But the elections code is written by ASUA, and the loopholes exist because ASUA officials left them there. The root of the problem is that it’s impossible to meaningfully address inappropriate campaigning because of vague wording and even complete omissions in the code. Luckily, it wouldn’t be too hard to rid the elections code of those loopholes. All ASUA would need to do is write out definitions of the unethical things that go on during campaigns. Once these definitions have been specifically established, it would be easy for an elections commissioner to judge whether or not a candidate is acting in violation of them. Every election is the same: The candidates disregard ethics and quietly ignore the rules, hoping that no one will point it out. But even when they get caught, there aren’t any consequences. The only way to have fair, legitimate elections in the future is to tighten the elections code, and to take serious action when that code is broken. Continuing to run elections under a flawed elections code only enables candidates to walk all over the elections commissioner — and the voters. — Editorials are determined by the Arizona Daily Wildcat’s editorial board and written by one of its members.

Sexual assault reported at Theta Chi

A UA student reported that she was sexually assaulted at the Theta Chi fraternity house at 7 p.m. on March 2. Officers from the University of Arizona Police Department met with the woman and her friend following the incident. Her friend, who had originally called the police, said someone had followed the woman and tried to rape her when she went into a bathroom. The woman seemed reluctant to talk about what had happened, but she finally disclosed it to UAPD privately, without her friend. She said she had arrived at the fraternity around 3 p.m., and went to use a bathroom around 7 p.m. A man followed her into the bathroom, put his hands on her shoulders and then pushed her against the wall, she said. He then pinned her in place and fondled her against her will. When another man came into the bathroom, her assailant ran out. The suspect was described as tan with a medium build and brown hair, about 5 feet 10 inches, and possibly with braces. She said he was “very intoxicated,� and she did not want to police to try to contact him or get the fraternity or him “in trouble.� Police told her about UA Campus Health Service counseling services and she completed a victim’s rights form.

‘Corrupt-ass cops’

A UA student was referred to the dean of students for his behavior after screaming obscenities at 7:11 p.m. on March 4. UAPD went to Babcock Residence Hall to check on the student at the request of his mother, who said he’d become upset and wouldn’t answer her calls after he got in a fight at an unknown location. Police spoke with the student in the residence hall’s parking lot as he sat in his running car. Police asked him to park his car while they spoke with him, and he started shouting and waving his arms. The officers then told him to get out of his car to talk. “Leave me the fuck alone, corrupt-ass cops,� the student said. He was then placed in handcuffs for his “aggressive/combative� behavior. “Get these fucking handcuffs off me,� he said. “Fuck you!� The man kept cursing and yelling at the police, so UAPD took the student inside the dorm to speak with him in a private room. There the man told police that he “hated cops� and denied involvement in any fight. He remained uncooperative, and when asked if he wanted to press charges against the individual he’d fought, said, “No, I’m gonna do my thing.� The student was unable to identify the individual he had fought and denied medical assistance, although an officer requested that Southern Arizona Mental Health Corporation evaluate the student. “Oh fuck no, I don’t need this shit, I’m gonna do my thing,� the student said, standing up and trying to leave the room. Police decided the man was not a threat to himself, but referred him to the dean of students due to his behavior. “This is bullshit,� the student said.

False alarm

UAPD officers went to Babcock at 4:45 a.m. on March 2 to investigate a fire alarm that had been activated by smoke. Police checked the fire alarm panel at the dorm and went to the room where the alarm was set off. As police neared the room, they smelled a strong odor of marijuana. They knocked on the door three times, to no response. Because of the alarm, police were able to get a key to the room from a resident assistant. When they entered the room, there were no people or signs of smoke or fire to be seen, but there was a very strong smell of marijuana. Police used a CatCard lying on the desk to to confirm who lived in the room, and referred him to the dean of students because of the smell of marijuana.

Bullpen fails Wildcats in 5-2 loss Arizona wastes Tyger Talley’s no-hitter into the fifth inning, gives up five runs in the seventh inning luke della Arizona Daily Wildcat

Head coach Andy Lopez has said all year long that one run should be enough, and Wednesday afternoon’s 5-2 loss to Texas Tech (8-6) at Hi Corbett Field gave No. 16 Arizona’s (11-4) coaches a better idea of who can be counted on to come in with a one-run lead. In his first career start, freshman Tyger Talley (0-0) got no run or bullpen support, and despite pitching a no-hitter through 5.0 innings, ended the day with a no decision. In the seventh inning, Talley gave up his second hit of the game to the lead-off hitter and then was relieved by senior Augey Bill (2-0). Bill struck out his only batter before being replaced by senior Nick Cunningham (0-2). Following Bill, the Red Raiders broke the game open with a five-run seventh inning. “[Talley] hit his spots and had great command,” Lopez said. Talley was pulled because of the coaches’ decision to keep his arm at a low pitch count. He finished the game with 76 pitches. After the game, Lopez said he made the switch because of the matchup and the need to give other guys an opportunity to prove their reliability. He made it very clear that the young arms were outplaying many of the seniors, and even though he’d love to see the older guys succeed, as it stands now, all of them except Bill will be sitting come the start of Pac-12 play. “I tell my guys all the time, I love my wife, but I’m not bringing her out to pitch in the seventh or eighth inning,” Lopez said. Prior to the five-run seventh, the Wildcats had a 1-0 lead, but could have had a larger

lead if they hadn’t failed on multiple chances. In the fifth inning, Arizona failed to score despite having its number three and four hitters, Johnny Field and Brandon Dixon, up to bat with only one out. Texas Tech starting pitcher Johnathon Tripp (00) resolved the problem by getting Field to pop out and Dixon to strike out. “We just didn’t get it done today,” Dixon said. ”We didn’t make it happen. Field got the pitch he was sitting on, but just missed it. And I had a bad at-bat.” Talley’s no-hitter was broken up with no outs in the sixth inning when leadoff hitter Zach Davis singled to right center. Before Davis’ single, only two Texas Tech batters ­ had reached base, — Brandon Dixon, both walked. Neither UA head coach of the runners appeared to affect the freshman, as no Red Raider reached second base while Talley was on the mound. “I was locating my fastball, my off speed was working and I had great location,” Talley said about his start. “I obviously didn’t want to come out, but it was the coaches’ decision and I want to do whatever’s best for the team.” Talley was pulled with no outs in the seventh inning. Preceeding Talley, Bill, Cunningham, senior Stephen Manthei, redshirt freshman Xavier Borde and senior Tyler Hale all saw action in the inning. “Talley was phenomenal,” Lopez said. “Both Talley and [freshman] Cody Moffett have been excellent for us in the past week.” Wednesday’s loss was good and bad for

Washington ‘trying to be consistent’ for UA zack rosenblatt Arizona Daily Wildcat

Justin Washington has a lot to prove, and he knows it. Last year, Washington was suspended for the first five games of the season by head coach Rich Rodriguez due to an “unspecified violation of team rules.” “It was tough to sit and watch the team play,” said Washington, a defensive lineman. “But I knew I had to do my consequences for what I had done.” Arizona needed all the healthy bodies it could get on an injuryriddled defensive line, so with his suspension, Washington earned himself a spot in Rodriguez’s doghouse, and he had some work to do to get out of it. “Justin, frankly, wasn’t ready to play football to our standards in the first half of the year,” Rodriguez said. Washington and Rodriguez wouldn’t disclose what Washington did to warrant the suspension, but regardless, he eventually worked his way back onto the team and into its defensive line rotation. He was back by Arizona’s sixth game against Stanford and recorded one tackle in limited action. “I think it was a little shaky in the beginning because I was out for a

through some things, but he’s got it all squared away now and he’s committed to the football team.” Still, his stance with Arizona entering his senior season is noticeably different from when he entered his sophomore one. In short, things haven’t exactly gone according to plan in Washington’s collegiate career. He had a stellar freshman year in 2010 and received first-team Freshman All-America honors from Sporting News. But the next year he suffered a knee injury in week six, had a severe allergic reaction to a pregame meal at the Alamo Bowl, had shoulder surgery a month later to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder, missed all of spring ball and during the summer suffered from severe weight loss. And then last spring, Rodriguez’s first at Arizona, Washington was charged with criminal trespassing for his alleged role in a campus-area brawl. The charges against Washington and four other Arizona players were dropped in May. His performance suffered on the field, too. A few weeks into his sophomore year, before he injured

UA hosts Boise State for weekend series JAMES KELLEY Arizona Daily Wildcat

Arizona softball hosts Boise State for a threegame series over three days, but the weather has forced an off-day on Friday. The No. 20 Wildcats (15-5) host the Broncos (9-10) tonight at 6 p.m. at Hillenbrand Stadium, a game originally scheduled for Friday night, but moved up a day due to the threat of rain. On Saturday Arizona and BSU play a doubleheader starting at 5 p.m. Tonight’s game is Breast Cancer Awareness Night and fans are encouraged to wear pink. On Saturday, the first 1,500 fans will receive a schedule magnet. Arizona is perfect at home this season, sweeping the Hillenbrand Invitational 5-0 and the Wildcat Invitational 5-0.

Levrets said the Utes took it one game and one possession at a time and tried to see how far they could climb in the standings. “We put the standings on the board, showed the kids where we were, who we had left on the schedule and said, ‘This is tournament time for us, one game at a time,’” Levrets said. If Arizona can upset Utah, it will face three-seed UCLA, which has a bye during the first round. The Bruins swept the season series, winning 73-57 in Los Angeles on Jan. 25 and 68-57 in Tucson on Sunday. However, both Washington schools and the two top teams in the conference, one-seed Stanford (28-2, 17-1) and two-seed California (27-2, 17-1), are on the other side of the bracket. The home team, Washington (19-10, 11-7), is seeded fifth, and Washington State (10-19, 6-12) is the eight seed. Stanford has won the tournament six times in a row and nine times overall. If Arizona upsets UCLA, it will be in the semifinals Saturday.

his knee, he had already lost his starting job to a freshman (Saniella Fuimaono, no longer at the UA). And since getting six sacks and 11.5 tackles for loss in 12 games as a freshman, Washington has one sack and two tackles for loss in 17 games as a sophomore and junior. “I know I messed up a lot in the past and everything,” Washington said, “so I’m just working on the future and just trying to be consistent, be more positive and just try to be here for my team all the time, not just some of the time with injuries. I’m trying to be here all the time.” There’s no one to blame for Washington’s recent struggles but himself, said offensive line coach Bill Kirelawich. Washington — who is 6-foot-2 — ended last season listed at 268 pounds, which is about the average weight for a collegiate defensive lineman.

As of Wednesday, though, he was at 250 pounds. “Right now, for me, he’s underweight,” Kirelawich said. “I’d like to see him gain some more weight. I think he’s a terrific natural football player, but the way he plays, he needs to be bigger. For this season coming up, he needs to be about 20 pounds heavier. “If he has any illusions of playing in the NFL, he better gain some weight.” Washington’s goal is to get into the 265-275 pound range, which he said “is not easy.” But it wasn’t easy to get six sacks as a freshman, and it certainly wasn’t easy working his way back onto the roster last year. Now, if he wants to contribute, Kirelawich and Rodriguez said he’ll have to prove himself all over again. “I felt like I let the team down when I got suspended,” Washington said, “so my whole mindset was just working hard to get back with the team and prove to them I should be a Wildcat, be a part of this team and be on the same field as them.”

Change up your Kishi Bashi hypnotizes interview attire, Club Congress crowd attitude for spring H P AMY JOHNSON

Arizona Daily Wildcat

ave you ever heard a violinist with an American-Japanese influence and a banjo player together on stage? Better yet, ever heard a violinist recording live and looping his tracks as the other musician uses his banjo as both a drum and guitar? Virginia-based multi-instrumentalist Kishi Bashi came to Tucson on a headlining tour alongside New York City’s Tall Tall Trees on Tuesday night. Known as K Ishibashi, this violinist-turned-vocalist came onto the music scene with the help of artists like of Montreal and Regina Spektor. Club Congress is an intimate venue showered in soothing light where fans feel close to the artists onstage. K Ishibashi took the intimacy a step further by presenting a show that was comedic, connected and playful. Tall Tall Trees came on stage in a self-admitted Red Bull-induced frenzy that gave way to a warm, personal performance. With shaggy, untrimmed hair and a robust Kishi Bashi beard, solo band member Mike Savino entertained the crowd with his rich personality between songs, sharing that his banjo is named “Space Banjo” and making Tucson-themed jokes. A vivacious character who comes across as completely authentic, Savino helped bring together an otherwise disparate crowd of uppity hipsters. Then smoke swirled around the front of the stage as a slender figure in a black button-down and silver-sequined bow tie appeared. When the smoke cleared, K Ishibashi jumped right into his set with

“Intro / Pathos, Pathos,” trailed by Savino and backup singer/keyboardist Elizabeth Ziman, whose style and charm closely resembled that of Zooey Deschanel. A strong stage presence and rhythmic live looping made for the perfect storm in a lively and animated performance. K Ishibashi is a classically trained artist who has been playing the violin since he was a child, and it seems that all his practice has paid off: Jaws dropped throughout the crowd as the audience watched him record his own material live, loop it and then develop layers upon layers of beatboxing and violin sequences. K Ishibashi is undoubtedly a rare talent. He plays his violin traditionally, as a fiddle and even as a ukulele. His soprano vocals are hypnotic, while his beatboxing is both innovative and on point. However, it’s K Ishibashi’s humility that really makes him a class act. After the show, Savino spoke of Ishibashi ‘s talent with admiration. The two had been on tour together for five weeks by the time they arrived in Tucson and had already Press photo picked up a large gathering of followers, as evidenced by the almost sold-out crowd at Club Congress. “He is very humble,” Savino said. “He doesn’t realize the impact he’s having on people.” And his impact is profound. Even crowd members who had seen live pedal-based looping on stage before couldn’t help but whisper, “Wow,” under their breaths as Ishibashi’s beatboxing, vocals and violin tracks intertwined, making the evening a fresh experience for even the most jaded concertgoer.
