SWOSUPalooza is April 16



SWOSUPalooza 10 is coming up Thursday, April 16, and the feature band this year is the Randy Rogers Band.

The free outdoor musical event featuring four bands will be staged at Milam Stadium from 6-11 p.m.  The theme of this year's event is "The End is Near" and corporate sponsor of the event is Mayan Sun, a tanning spa.

SWOSU Student Government Association President Greg Franklin said the Randy Rogers Band is a red dirt country band. Also scheduled to perform is the winner of the March Bandness Contest in Oklahoma City; "306"; and Skinny Road Walkin'. 

A new addition to the event this year is a carnival that will be located outside Milam Stadium on the west-side parking lot. Sigma Sigma Chi sorority is sponsoring the carnival that actually starts on April 15 and continues through April 18. There will be rides, games and concessions. During SWOSUPalooza, a wrist band night will be offered that will allow anyone to pay one price and ride the rides as many times the person wants.

Franklin said back stage passes for the event are being given out through various ways, including a contest by KJ103 radio station and through the SGA.
