Graduate Student Welcome Party, featuring The Polkaholics

Lecture Series

Tuesday, September 20, 2016


International House Courtyard

Join the UChicago Grad Council at International House for an Oktoberfest-style welcome party for all UChicago Grad Students. Meet current and incoming grad students, learn about UChicago Grad Council and how to get involved, and listen as the Polkaholics put the oomph back in oom-pah!

'Dandy Don' Hedeker (aka Donald Hedeker, AB’80, PhD ‘89, and Professor in the Department of Public Health Sciences) formed the Polkaholics in ‘97 by fusing his two main influences: punk and polka. This was an unlikely mixture but the Polkaholics, with current members Dandy Don, drummer Action Jackson Wilson and bassist Blitz Linster, have electrified polka and made it rock!

Free and open to UChicago Graduate Students.

Presented by the Global Voices Performing Arts Series, UChicagoGRAD, the Graduate Council, and Bart Lazar, AB’82.
