Two Summer Concerts This Week

Just because it’s summer session doesn’t mean the State College music scene is dead. There are two concerts this week in the area that are worth checking out.

First, Movin’ On headliners Mayday Parade, fellow Movin’ On performers The Dangerous Summer and The Hope Fallacy, and Gene the Werewolf will be performing tonight at The Edolyn Terrace in Altoona. The show starts at 6 p.m. and tickets will be $12 in advance through Ticketmaster and $15 at the door. This show is being co-sponsored by Nittany Booking, who has brought some great acts to State College in the past.

If paying for shows isn’t your thing, Mike Doughty and Dawn Kinnard will be performing at 6 p.m. on Hiester Street as part of this month’s First Thursday celebration. Considering it’s free, I couldn’t hurt to stop by.

Be sure to check back for more concert updates throughout the summer.

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.
