Syllabus Week Rocks for Music at La Casa Blanca
Syllabus week. The time of year when you day dream off of the introductory chapters of over-priced textbooks, spend hours searching for a tapestry for the blank spot in your dorm room or meet up with friends you haven’t seen in three weeks.
Well, what about fitting some good music in your unusually lax schedule? The fellas at La Casa Blaca on 221 E. Park Ave and the Penn State Songwriters Club are showcasing a diverse range of tunes this Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to help stretch your break out for one more week.
On Wednesday, the “A Tour Without a Stupid Name” rolls into north campus with a heavy hitting bill. For fans of early 2000 Fueled by Ramen, there’s Philly pop-punk band, Bright and Early. Their melodic vocals and catchy guitar riffs are sure to be a hit with a wide fan base. Watertown, New Yorkers, Still Rings, trace the roots of punk back with a crunchy guitar work and a Hardcore DIY style. Albany indie-punk band , Caleb Lionheart, and solo acoustic act, A Day Without Love, are also set to take the stage on Wednesday. Show starts at 8pm and a $3-$5 donation is asked at the door.
On Thursday, Penn State Songwriters Club will host a new year open mic at the Pollock Cultural Lounge. The stage is yours. Come show off your talents or just stop by to enjoy the performances and meet Penn State’s musically inclined.
On Friday, SWC kicks off the weekend with a Hip Hop black light show at La Casa Blanca. Acts include local DJ duo, Bandits; soulful R&B singer, Romy; and seasoned rap sensation, MC Drew, from Atlas Soundtrack. Then wrapping up the night is New Jersey rapper and funny man, The ‘U’. Music starts at 10pm.
