North Mississippi Allstars Shine Brightly

Earlier tonight, the State Theatre hosted the North Mississippi Allstars with special guests City Champs. I was absolutely one of the youngest people there, and a man dressed as a leprechaun sat in front of me. It was an interesting environment to be in.

City Champs put me to sleep for the first three songs (literally). The soul-jazz + the lack of vocals = nap time for Melanie. They did, however, manage to wake me up with a funky-jazz song, where their organ player impressed me greatly. Three people gave them a standing ovation, and I believe they earned it.

The North Mississippi Allstars had vocals, so that was a plus. They were a more blues-infused rock group – different than what I listen to on a daily basis, but their music was pretty soothing (fortunately, they did not put me back to sleep).

Overall? It was the best jazz/blues concert I’ve ever attended. Did I mention it was the only concert of the sort I’ve been to?

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.
