Joshua Yu | The Signal
Headliner DeRay Davis

The corner of Forsyth and Luckie Street was jam-packed with students and fans for Friday’s headline event: Terminus, a night of art, music, poetry, and comedy. As the doors opened to the lobby at 7 pm, ticket holders were welcomed to a bar for a “mock-tail,” a non-alcoholic frozen drink. DJs pumped out electronic music and encouraged everyone to “mingle” as the theater room wouldn’t open for another hour.

Comedian Joe Braxton, a senior at Georgia State, was the first act during the mingling period. He got the crowd laughing with ease with his routine that mentioned several relatable issues and problems that Georgia State students face.

Following Braxton, the group Conscious Collective, a Georgia State student organization whose goal is self-expression through spoken and visual arts, delivered rhythmic, flowing poetry. Their performance got the attention of many people in the crowd.

Once the theater room was clear to open, students and fans quickly filled the seats in anticipation for the main act, DeRay Davis.

Opening for Davis were comedienne Ms. B from Miami and comedian Donnivin Jordan from Hattiesburg, Miss. Ms. B got the female crowd riled up with jokes about feminine problems and Michelle Obama’s charm.

Jordan also spoke about the Obamas and even impersonated the President on how he would react after being re-elected. Upon entering the stage. DeRay Davis was met loud applause and cheer. He didn’t waste any time inciting laughs from the audience. He spoke about his upbringing and his (comical) troubles with raising his own daughter.

Termius was an excellent wrap up to Georgia State’s Homecoming week and the last event before the football game versus Villanova where the Homecoming King, Queen, Prince, and Princess will be announced at half-time.
