Pi Kappa Phi and CSC sold out Ackerman Grand Ballroom for their 2006 Battle of the Bands.

PiKapp Rocks the House Battle of the Bands grosses over $15,000, receives rave reviews If you host it, they will come. This winter, PiKapp Eta Sigma hosted the largest philanthropy event in its history, a five-group battle of the bands held in Ackerman Grand Ballroom, and the masses did indeed attend. Headlined by an acoustic performance by the Ataris, the show featured five bands from UCLA and the surrounding area and sold out the largest venue on campus. PiKapp cosponsored the event with the Community Service Commis-

sion, and the joint coordinating efforts of the CSC chair and our own Harsh Parikh, #182, were monumentally successful. While IFC advisor Scott Carter claimed to have provided a great deal of assistance to the chapter in their preparation, the reality of things is that PiKapp needed very little outside assistance to hold one of the greatest fraternity events UCLA has seen in years. The Inter-Fraternity Council had attempted to put together a

battle of the bands in 20042005, but the event was unsuccessful, and thus the magnitude of the chapter’s achievement is even more impressive. A special thanks goes out to all the alumni who showed up to support this Push event, from as far away as New York City, no less. It is always a pleasure to have alumni present to witness our continuance of their efforts. Proud to be.
