Program Board to bring hypnotist to campus as first event of spring semester

Program Board is bringing a hypnotist to campus to kick off its spring schedule.

The organization will host “Cards Against Hypnosis” with David Hall at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 12 in Plachta Auditorium.

Hall is a hypnotist who has been entertaining audiences since 1998, according to Metropolis Management. The booking agency’s page states that in “Cards Against Hypnosis” Hall throws a random ball into the crowd and the person who catches it will be shown two large cards — a black card which shows a scenario or skit and a white card with possible outcomes.

Based on what the person chooses, the skit will be performed by hypnotized participants who are onstage.

Program Board ended the winter semester with “Dating with Dave Ahdoot” on Dec. 6. Damon Brown, director of the Office of Student Activities and Involvement, said in December that Program Board has about $120,000 to work with for the spring semester. A concert is being planned in McGuirk Arena later in the semester.

In addition to Program Board events, other winter entertainment includes Wayside Central’s “Midweek Freak” EDM concert on Thursday, Jan. 12. More than five DJs will perform, including Crowd Cntrl, Skinz, SteVlth and Blackout. Doors open at 9 p.m. with a $5 cover charge.

O’Kelly’s Sports Bar & Grill will host a “Pre-MLK No School Monday” bash on Sunday, Jan. 15. Paddlebots, a progressive soul-pop group, performs from 8-11 p.m.
