Karmin to Swag Up Penn State

YouTube Sensation, Karmin (@karminmusic), is materializing from the cyber-web to perform for a Penn State crowd on October 12th in Alumni Hall according to @psu_spa.

Also officially announced last night, Mayday Parade and The Maine will be coming to Alumni Hall on October 20th. Read more about that show here.

Kind of like the Tupac hologram, but not really at all, the internet famous pop duo will cash in their hundreds of millions of YouTube views for actual fans in an actual 3-dimensional venue. But unlike when you last heard Karmin — while watching their cover of Look at Me Now on the porcelain throne — the band’s spin in Happy Valley will be much less impressive.

As the shackles of the web have proven, when you get famous on the internet you either figuratively or literally blow Usher — literally you become Justin Beiber or figuratively you make a summer radio hit like the band’s top 20 track, Brokenhearted. Though Karmin’s vocalist Amy Heidemann is a Berklee-trained singer as well as a bad ass rapper and the band has proven the virility of their tunes (admittedly like the Beibz), teeny-bop concerts haven’t been cool since the 2000’s killed boy bands.

And honestly, if  you want to spend your Friday night crammed in a sweaty room with a bunch of screaming people as you progressively lose your pre-game buzz to the soundtrack of cheesy radio hits, it’s not too late to go Greek.

Does anyone give two shits that Karmin is coming to Penn State? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter.
