NKOTB Perform at BJC

Sure, they got a bunch of hits (I know this via LFO via TRL), but can they still perform those hits without throwing their backs out?

The Collegian’s Andrew Steadman, a recent friend of Onward State, says that the gang is “aging gracefully.” Not sure that’s the kind of compliment any rocker wants to get though. The Bryce Jordan Center was at approximately 1/6 capacity for the concert.

The group, on tour to support its first album of new material in 15 years, has lately been trying to update its image. Though the guys aren’t kids anymore, the show was geared toward loyal fans of the group.

Wendy Vaughn, Amy Ruble and their friends traveled from Lewistown, Pa., to see the show.

“I’m a big fan,” Vaughn said. “I went to see them in, like, 1990.”

1990, what? More like 1919!

Penn State Live says that the group opened with Call It What You Want and closed with Hangin’ Tough.

And, true to form, Penn State Live has a real nice set of pictures from the concert. The pictures were taken by Andy Colwell with a Nikon D200 (love you, meta data). Props Andy! You can find the pictures in their original form here.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
