Songwriters FTK

Penn State’s Songwriters Club will be hosting an concert next Friday from 7 to 9 p.m. in Heritage Hall in the HUB to benefit THON. The concert will feature several members of the club playing original songs with a few covers thrown in for good measure. Tickets will be $5 in advance, $6 at the door, and all the proceeds will go to THON.

The concert will feature six acts including the “motive core new age alternative rock persuasion” bands A Day Without Love and In Other News, acoustic guitarists Jeremy Fretz (which, awesomely, is his actual name) and Maura Westerlund, rock duo Patrick Troester and Isaac Bishop, and Funk band West of Babylon.

If you’re interested in going, advance tickets will be sold in Pollock Commons February 1-2 and in Waring Commons February 3-4. I got a chance to hear several members of this club last November at their Open Mic Night, and I’m guessing the concert will be worth the donation. Worst case scenario, you kill two hours before you can go out Friday and support THON. Best case, you get to hear some great original music made by Penn State students.

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.

The last time Onward State power ranked bathrooms, “cesspool” bar bathrooms were excluded out of fairness to campus bathrooms. Now, we’re exploring which restrooms live up to that name and which lovely lavatories rise above.
