SPA Noontime Show Draws Crowd

When you’re walking through the HUB on a Friday during lunch time, and you hear music playing…do you ever go and check it out?

The Makeup Call traveled from Uniontown to play an SPA noontime show yesterday. Shaun Novak and Thomas Andrus Hopton, the members of The Makeup Call, are a dynamic duo in the acoustic world. Originally, they played in a band called Colour Like Clover, until the band broke up. An acoustic act came out of this, however, and I couldn’t be happier. They cover all sorts of artists, including Panic! At the Disco and Akon. Personally, I think they perform better than the actual bands (this especially holds true when they play Fall Out Boy songs). Shaun’s got a phenomenal voice; I was blown away the first time I heard him sing.

This noontime show was one of my favorite of the semester, rivaling Steve Moakler. The Makeup Call has a ton of potential, and I’m hoping they make it big.

College vs. The Real World

Leaving Penn State was tough. I made so many memories in Happy Valley that it was a difficult transition to go through. Though I lived up all four years I spent at PSU, I can’t help but occasionally think, “Why did I ever leave?” I thought I’d reflect on my current life and college life and give some advice to those of you who still have time at PSU.
