Student performers took The Underground stage with flair on Thursday night, February 23, in The Sweet Spot: Unplugged, a lineup of acoustic and a cappella performances. Provided with only one or two microphones, students rocked and moved the audience crossing genres and languages. The lineup included a mix of undergraduate, graduate, and professional students and featured Evan Branham ’24, Anthony “T” Scarborough ’23, Lachlan Keller ’22, and Thomas Zamora ’23, collectively known as 3PM Noize Complaint (@3pmnoizecomplaintband) who performed an original song and What’s New Scooby Doo; Benjamin Johnson ‘25 Arch (@ben_jamin.17)who performed Rainbow Connection; Julia Senra ’23 GSAS who performed Luz do Sol, Jenelle Burgess ’26 (@jenellesmusic) who performed an original song; Nydia del Carmen ’26 who performed Prometo; Derek Demel ’23 GSAS (@derek_demel) who performed This Love and an original song; and Awuor Onguru ’24 (@daluikkot) who performed Blewu and an original song.
