SOMA Shows Hustle, Books New Bands

It should be clear now (if it wasn’t already) that Students Organizing the Multiple Arts is one of the most clutch organizations on campus.

After finding out earlier this week that Los Campesinos! would be canceling their show at Penn State due to issues with the Icelandic volcano (and, subsequently, that Cymbals Eat Guitars would not be coming either), SOMA President Danny Michelson hustled like no other and booked two new groups for their end of the year show: Man Man and The Apples in stereo (“Capitalization intentional,” Michelson said in an email).

SOMA and Danny Michelson deserve some major praise for not only getting replacement acts together in just a day, but for getting acts that are on par with (or better than) the original musicians. Excellent work!

Just like the previous show, the new event will be free, at Heritage Hall in the HUB, will start at 7 (doors open at 6:45), and will feature local openers Kalob Griffin Band and Zak Sobel Band. You can find more details on the event page.
