My lunch companions — sophomores Matthew Kukar and Connor Doebbert — are in Augsburg’s club for beatboxing.
Kukar started the club a year ago, and the seven members meet once a week to jam or get lessons from Kukar — who also hosts a beatboxing show on the college radio station.
They perform on campus, in talent shows and open-mic contests.
I won’t explain what beatboxing is.
Just watch for yourself.
