Love Rockabilly music?  Wondering what the heck Rockabilly music is?  Either way it’s time to shut the books and head over to this week’s Thank Goodness It’s Thursday (TGIT).  November 11th from 9pm to 12am, see the North Texas band, Drop Top Rockets, put on a live show in Haggar Student Center’s Rathskellar (a.k.a the basement, for you non-UD-ers).

I know, I know…’Tis the season for COMPS (comprehensive exams).  As a University of Dallas senior, I am well aware it’s that time of the year–theses, projects, presentations, research, oral exams, written exams…the list goes on.  The season begins late October/early November and lasts through Spring Break, practically.  Even for those students who aren’t seniors, the papers are piling up and the semester is snowballing until the small relief granted by Thanksgiving break.

However, for your own health, I suggest taking a break–even for an hour or two–to let loose, show off those dancing skills, and grab a beer (or soda/pop) this Thursday in the Rat with some of your friends.  You deserve it.  (Plus, then you can find out what’s up with that Rockabilly genre that’s WAAAY under represented on your iTunes play list).
