SUPB turns Thursday nights into ‘Thursday Night Live’

January 31st, 2013

Now that the winter season is in full force, students seldom want to leave their dorms, let alone campus, with the intense winds and heavy snow. For those who need a break from homework and want to see how entertaining the student body can be, SUPB has organized an event for you.

The Student Union Programming Board has come up with an idea that is sure to get students to stay on campus for those bleak and boring Thursday nights. Taking place in the LSC Atrium this Thursday,  Jan. 31, at 9 p.m., SUPB presents “Thursday Night Live,” an open mic/variety series.

“During the fall we saw a few very successful open mic nights on campus,  said sophomore Dani Keane,  SUPB’s major events coordinator. “As an organization, SUPB saw this as a huge opportunity to showcase the talents of John Carroll students.  We have great musicians on campus and Thursday Night Live is a way to bring the community together with music and the spoken word.”

With flyers posted all around campus, this intriguing event should be a huge hit among those students who would rather watch then perform. However, anyone is welcome to showcase their talent, and there is no limit for what their talent can be. For now, Thursday Night Live is scheduled for the next four months with shows on Jan. 31, Feb. 14, March 14 and April 11.  With that in mind, there is ample opportunity for anyone to catch a show. Also, the musical comedy duo DakaBoom will be performing on March 14, as well as comedian Paul Varghese on April 11.
