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)

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.
