Saint Patrick’s Day in Happy Valley

With Saint Patrick’s Day only a day away, many students may be asking themselves, “What can I possibly do to celebrate this holiday?”  While in most cases, the number one answer is drinking excessively, there is plenty of entertainment in Happy Valley that will go hand in hand with the inebriation.

For starters, the two Irish bars in town, Phyrst and Kildare’s, will be hosting live entertainment throughout the day.  Phyrst will be starting off the day at 7 a.m. with a performance from Table Ten.  The lineup after Table Ten is as follows…

9am: Full Kilt

11am: Night Crawlers

1pm: Michael O’Brien

4pm: Ted & the HiFis

6pm: Tommy Wareham and the Intrigues

8pm: Lowjack

10pm: My Hero Zero

Kildare’s will be opening at 8 a.m. and will be hosting many acts from the afternoon until 2 a.m.  From 3 p.m. until 7 p.m., an Irish String Group will be playing.  After that, Ken Volz will be playing an acoustic set until 10 p.m.  For the select few that will still be going hard by 10p.m., DJ DB will be rocking Kildare’s until 2 a.m.  There will also be Irish bagpipers and dancers throughout Saturday at the bar.

For those of you who are not 21, there is no need to worry!  The State Theatre will be having two shows on Saturday.  At 1 p.m., Callanish, Centre County’s traditional Celtic band, will be playing a set filled with flutes, fiddles, guitars, and plenty of vocal harmonies.  According to the State Theatre’s website, there will also be a “variety of Celtic-themed arts and demonstrations.”

The latter show will be country singer, Steve Earle, at 8p.m.  Earle is touring for his 14th studio album; I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive, which has received both Emmy and Grammy nominations.  Steve Earle has been considered one of the greatest American roots musicians of all time.

Tomorrow, don’t sit on your ass in your dorm or apartment! There are plenty of things for you to do in town that can allow you to show off your inner Irish!
