Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and as we pull into our home stretch, I figured it would only be appropriate to write about a couple things I’m thankful for.
It goes without saying that I’m thankful for family, friends, and food (I’m so excited for the Thanksgiving feast that I think I can smell it already), but apart from that, I’m thankful for music. More importantly, I’m thankful for this year’s Rumble Down Under.
Rumble Down Under is JMU’s equivalent to a “School of Rock”-esque Battle of the Bands. While Jack Black will not be making an appearance tonight, there will still be awesome music AND delicious goodies (FOR FREE). Come out tonight to hear some of JMU’s finest talent, including SUTG, Adam in America, Andrew Rohlk & many more! The best part of Rumble Down Under is that the audience gets to play a part in selecting the finest talent, so round up all your friends so you can help pick the best band! The winner of RDU this year gets hooked up with student-run record label Madistrophic, a professional photo-shoot, and their very own Spotlight Series in January.
