SCHEMPER '97 BRINGS MOVIE PREMIER TO CHICAGO
Alumnus Kurt Schemper '97 and his partners at Sodium
Entertainment produced the feature
documentary, Last Dispatch, and
are bringing it to the Park West Theater for a Chicago premier on Friday, April 28, 2006 at 8 p.m. The film chronicles the last
days of Dispatch, quite possibly the biggest band that never signed with a
record label. In a time of upheaval in the music industry, their do-it-yourself
style started a grassroots fan phenomenon that is changing the way indie bands
(and record labels) do business. The band's final concert, "The Last Dispatch"
drew 110,000 fans from every U.S. state and 20 foreign countries for one last
free show in Boston in July of 2004. See www.dispatchmovie.com for more
information or www.ticketmaster.com

over the weekend. The conference doubleheader at Purdue University-North Central

then came back to record a 6-0 shut out in the second game. They then
faced another baseball doubleheader on Saturday when the Trolls hosted Calumet

ended with a 9-7 loss to Greenville College (IL). The Trolls, who were just on
