rock up

verb;
to show up somewhere, normally without giving notice beforehand ("he just rocked up to my house today"). My roommates and I found that this was a very typical phrase in Australian slang, and generally was used to describe going somewhere on a whim or someone else showing up without notice. In this case, it was used to let us know that we could think about whether we wanted to go see the game instead of letting them know immediately if we were going.
 
You should just rock up to Fox Studios at 6.30.
