“Movin’ On” at Other Schools

So now that you know who is headlining Movin’ On, your first thoughts are probably, “How could this happen? Why is the headliner a band that usually opens for other bands? What music artists do other schools bring for their spring concerts?”

I can’t answer the first two questions, but the last one I can.


Columbia’s Bwog posted today that Talib Kweli, Brooklyn rapper, will be performing at their Bacchanal on April 18th. Also rumored is Columbia’s own: Vampire Weekend.


The Daily Pennsylvanian reports today that their Spring Fling will play host to Akon and Guster, an awkward combination that is sure to please almost everyone… maybe. It seems, however, that an increase in ticket prices are angering students.



Thanks to commenter Po, we learn that this year Bucknell hosted the Derek Trucks Band, Kevin Rudolf, and Ludacris this spring.


Also, Juniata got to see Matt Nathanson and State Radio.

If you’ve heard the spring concert lineup at other schools, post a comment about what they are. Also, let us know how you feel about the Movin’ On lineup this year.

Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.
