We Are Scientists to Play Free Concert in HUB

After much rumor and speculation, SOMA confirmed today that We Are Scientists will be playing in Alumni Hall on January 22nd. Best part about this top 40 charting trio coming to Penn State: the show will be FREE.

That’s right kids, you won’t even have to sell back your new textbooks to see them (along with openers British Phil and The Exclusive Document).

The concert itself is set to run from 7-11 p.m. and is open to anyone with a Penn State ID.

For those of you who don’t know We Are Scientists, the New York based trio is worth checking out. Their second album “Brain Thrust Mastery” was released last March and work on a third is underway. This video of their single “After Hours” should give you a good idea of their sound.

Southern Kitsch and Sweet Tea at Cracker Barrel

After several months of anticipation, I was finally able to check out State College’s new Cracker Barrel on its opening day. Located at 215 Colonnade Blvd., there are few surprises at the chain’s new location. With rows of rocking chairs out front, checker boards and a game of peg solitaire at every table, I could have been at any franchise location in the country — not that that’s a bad thing.
