Songwriters Club Concerts to Benefit THON

It has been a long and sad couple of days for us here in Happy Valley. With the passing of our beloved Joe Paterno, we once again are reminded of how precious life is and how important it is to live for more than just ourselves.

With that in mind, we are reminded that THON is just a few weeks away and the Penn State community has an opportunity to come together for some music, fun and fundraising for a cause which we all hold so dear.

The Songwriters Club will be hosting concerts tonight and tomorrow night that will feature many student acts to benefit THON.

Thursday, January 26th @ 7PM in 105 Forum:
Flashback Forward
Runaway Heroes
Free Rollercoaster
The Wondershop Showdown

“This night will be a blast in the sense that students will have the opportunity to watch bands perform in a space where they normally attend a lecture.” – Christina Letter (V.P. of Songwriters’ Club)

Friday, January 27th @ 8PM in the State Theatre Attic:
Penn State Alumni: Seagulls
SWC Alumnus: Pat Troester
Jeremy Fretz
Port Vue
Annelise Gaus
Topher Stephenson
Brian Kilkelly

Friday is Acoustic Night and “is going to be a more stripped down and intimate setting, like most Acoustic shows are.”

Tickets are $8 at the door and are good for BOTH nights. All proceeds go towards THON. So come out and support these artists and the Penn State music community. FTK!

White Out Coming To THON

When it comes to doing creative and cool things- Penn Staters do it the best. When we want a White House at Beaver Stadium, we get 110,000 people to wear all white. When we want to help beat cancer, we raise millions of dollars and dance for 46 hours to help ease the burden on pediatric cancer patients and their families. In a few days, Penn State will have the chance to combine both of these things and white out THON 2012. It has been spreading around campus and social media sites that for the first time in THON’s history, the Pep Rally will be a White Out.
