Less Than Impressive? Or Skankalicious?

Less Than Jake is headlining Movin’ On, if you haven’t heard. I’ve seen them a couple of times live, and they’re a pretty decent live show. Though I don’t like their new stuff nearly as much as their old stuff (newer is much more punk than ska, in my opinion), I believe they will still put on a great show.

Mayday Parade (if you ask the Collegian, “May Day Parade”) is also a good live act. Derek really knows how to belt, and I may or may not have a big crush on him. I am really unsure of their newest CD, though. It seems to me that it was just written for the sake of being written, which is never a good sign.

I had never heard James Kinney before he was announced, but he’s got a pretty cool soul sound, like a more rock-oriented John Legend. Should be a nice change-up from all the pop punk.

I’ve already discussed The Dangerous Summer, and I hope they will be solid.

For the budget given, I’d say they did a pretty solid job. Who doesn’t like a good ska band? I hope the skanking is out of control.

What do you guys think of the line-up?

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.
