Students can compete in rock band event

by Christi Mathis

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- If you’ve ever dreamed of being a rock star or if having the opportunity to win great prizes appeals and you’re a Southern Illinois University Carbondale student, here’s your chance.

Student Center Dining by Chartwells is hosting a rock band event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 20, in the Roman Room at the Student Center. Any SIUC student is welcome to climb on stage and show off their skills with the interactive rock video game. Organizers encourage participants to don costumes to really get into the spirit of the event.

No pre-registration is required. Just show up and do your thing on stage. Everyone who is brave enough to play will have their names entered into a drawing for prizes including a Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 Rock Band games and accessories, T-shirts and key chains.
