Wallypalooza 2: The Rebirth

…at least that’s what Mike Wallace proposed as the name for this year’s festival. The first organizational meeting for Wallypalooza 2010 was held tonight and it looks like this year will be a fresh start for the festival.

The first goal is to diversify the show. Mike Wallace said he wants bands this year to be mainstream, affordable, but also talented. Hip Hop, Indie Rock and even Country are being considered for this show. Jesse Ruegg and Cameron Scott of Roustabout will be serving in an advising capacity to help with band selection and booking. The festival itself is being co-sponsored by UPUA and The LION FM. LION president Zach Zimbler said UPUA approached them to help organize the event.

In a response to criticism that there wasn’t enough outside input during last year’s Wallypalooza, UPUA’s “Spring Concert Planning Commission” seems like it will be operating with an unprecedented level of community involvement.

Most importantly, however, Wallypalooza wants you. With committees from Logistics to Promotions to fill, they are looking for any and all volunteers. There are even some spots open for team leaders if you think you’re the best person for the job. Those interested in helping out can contact [email protected] or just show up at next Monday’s meeting at 7:30 p.m. in 373 Willard. It looks like this year’s Wallypalooza is going to be a concert for the Penn State community, by the Penn State community.

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.
