Last Stop: The Headliners

Just a short while ago, the headliners for the Last Stop Music Festival (which will be on Friday, April 30 at 6:30 p.m. at the HUB lawn) were announced. Here’s a quick breakdown of the headliners to prepare yourself for the event.

State Radio

You may be familiar with State Radio as the group formed by Chad Urmston of Dispatch after they broke up (another former Dispatch member, Pete Francis, will be performing here next week). State Radio plays a funky brand of rock with some clear reggae influences. If you’re a Dispatch fan, you probably already know about these guys. If not, their live show should be excellent, so you should check them out anyway.

Fabolous

Brooklyn-based rapper Fabolous has had a very successful career. He’s released five albums which have sold millions of copies to date, his most recent being Loso’s Way (his new album, Loso’s Way 2, is set for release this year). You may remember his hits “Can’t Deny It” and “Young’n (Holla Back)“. Fabolous should be able to redeem Last Stop’s rap credibility after last year’s performance by turd-in-the-pool Asher Roth.

Matt and Kim

I’m sure you’re all familiar with Matt and Kim‘s breakout hit “Daylight“, but they actually have other songs too! And they’re good! They’ll be playing their brand of keyboard-electro-indie rock (sorry for all the genres) at Last Stop before heading to the Bamboozle Festival in New Jersey on May 2. This is the perfect chance to see Matt and Kim without having to step foot in America’s armpit.

Titus Andronicus

Alright, I take back that last comment about New Jersey being America’s armpit. Titus Andronicus, a group of Jersey natives, proves that the state still has some redeeming qualities. They sound like what Bruce Springsteen thinks punk rock sounds like. Their most recent album, The Monitor, is a concept album about the Civil War. Need I say more? These guys rule.

All in all, it’s looking like Last Stop will be an excellent festival. Let’s just hope that the weather gods shine down upon State College next Friday.
