Bands Playing During THON
While THON will essentially include 46hours of music back-to-back , one of the highlights is the live bands. This year’s lineup is a good mix of THON veterans and newcomers. Here are the bands and what you should know about them:
Lowjack – This southern/folk influenced band is no stranger to the THON stage. Their repertoire includes songs by Dave Matthew’s Band and Old Crow Medicine Show. (www.myspace.com/lowjackmusic)
Table Ten – Regulars to the State College Bar scene, this will be Table Ten’s second performance at THON. (www.friendsoftableten.stinge.com)
The Brew Devils – In their second year at THON, expect 90s hits from this band. Keep listening for their excellent cover of “Sweet Caroline”. (www.thebrewdevils.com)
Go Go Gadjet – Perhaps the most well known band on this list, expect a high energy set from these THON veterans. (www.gogogadjet.com)
5 Cherry Lewis – Be on the lookout for some unique orchestration from this band. New to THON, their cover of Katy Perry’s “Firework” should be memorable. (www.myspace.com/5cherrylewis)
Dave Joyce and the Slow Pitch Band – Winners of the THON Band Bash along with 5 Cherry Lewis, this band has altered its usual sound to fit the dance vibe of THON. (www.facebook.com/pages/Dave-Joyce-and-the-Slow-Pitch-band)
JR and Natalie Band – Another THON veteran, expect an eclectic mix of covers from this group. (www.facebook.com/pages/JR-and-Natalie-Band)
My Hero Zero – This band is hoping to top their already energetic performance at last year’s THON. Expect them to compete with The Brew Devils for best “Sweet Caroline” cover. (www.myherozerolive.com)
The Nightcrawlers – Returning to THON after an extended absence, this usually alt rock band has altered its set for THON to fit the dance mood. (www.myspace.com/thenightcrawlersband)
Velveeta – This band is summed up in their phrase “80s cheese”. Expect to reminisce throughout their set. (www.myspace.com/80scheese)
