This year, just like the past couple years and as long as I’ve been a part of my fraternity, we are putting on our philanthropy event Rock the Roof. It’s a local battle of the bands type deal where we bring in about 6-8 bands, they play for a whoever is in attendance, and then there is a point system given to judges who decide who was the best.
Last year we had some exciting bands, and one of our own actually won the competition (I know, sounds fishy, but they were very good.)
We’re excited about this event because it brings together a lot of people from campus and is a fun night for everyone involved, and usually brings in a solid amount of money for charity.
*In previous years, we’ve raised as much as $10,000 for our philanthropy, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana*
This year, however, we’re expecting some changes. To start, we’ve moved our location from Tin Roof’s local atmosphere to the much bigger
Headliner’s Music Hall, which can hold a couple hundred instead.
What has previously been more of a bar atmosphere with music on the side will now probably change to a music centered event, which means we hope our new bands will bring some quality and entertainment, something we definitely expect of them.
So far I’ve probably invited half of all of the people that I’ve ever encountered on this campus. I’m currently working on the other half.
In case anyone is reading this and would like to attend, it’s on April 13th at Headliners (as the poster states), and doors open at 6:30.
Below is a link to buy the $8 tickets, instead of paying $10 at the door.
This one should be our best event yet, and I am more than proud of our VP or Programming Eric Elder, for making it happen this year.
