SOMA Starts of Semester with Open Mic

micStudents Organizing the Multiple Arts (SOMA) held their first open mic of the year last night in the Waring Commons study lounge.

Featuring budding local artists, such as Honest Abe and some guy named Steve, the open mic was a showcase of some of the creative talent Penn State students have to offer. The acts, which ranged from stand up to rap to a sweet acoustic medley of Michael Jackson songs, began at 8pm and ended at 10pm.

SOMA hosts open mics monthly throughout the school year. Other upcoming SOMA events for this semester include a comedy show, a musical performance by a big act, and an mp3 experiment, in which people upload an mp3 detailing specific instructions to their mp3 player without listening to it ahead of time (the last experiment, held in 2007, resulted in a massive dance party).

SOMA, according to their website, is dedicated to organizing events on campus “showcasing student and local art of all kinds”. According to Bill, the webmaster, if SOMA were a dinosaur it’d be a Somasaurus, which remains a controversial species among most paleontologists.

To stay updated with all of SOMA’s events, join their Facebook group, Students Organizing the Multiple Arts (SOMA), or check out their website at psusoma.com.
