Ramona Falls and Tim Eads to Headline Arts Crawl This Friday

The entertainment scene in State College is heating up this spring, and this weekend will be no exception. Penn State’s sixth annual Arts Crawl is set to take place this Friday night on campus, featuring a multitude of musical performances and visual arts displays.

The Crawl, organized by SOMA and VASA, will kick off at 5:30 pm near the Palmer Museum of Art/Visual Arts Building/Patterson/that artsy area of campus. Once again, strolling minstrels will be featured as musical guides to help visitors find their way to the many performances and exhibits.

This year’s musical headliner is indie rock band Ramona Falls, probably best known for their hit “I Say Fever,” off of their 2009 debut album “Intuit.” The band’s second album, “Prophet,” is slated to hit May 1, so the Arts Crawl performance may be a chance to get an early peek at some of the group’s new music.

The visual headliner will be Philadelphia conceptual artist Tim Eads, whose works encompasses a variety of media, including sculpture, machines and prints among others.

The event will also feature 19 smaller, mostly local bands and, for the first time, a few DJs. Student art exhibits will also be on display around the area and a few student organizations will have their own intallations, making it a truly multimedia experience. For example, the Sculpture Club will once again have its own room, which will feature multiple overlapping themes this year. And the Student Film Organization will be showing student-made experimental films.

I’m probably the only person who has spent my entire college career almost evenly divided between working for The Daily Collegian and Onward State. I feel like this has given me a unique perspective on Penn State’s media scene. And I’ve learned a great deal from both media outlets.
