4th Annual Two Night Concert Benefiting THON Starts Tonight

The Penn State Songwriter’s Club will kick off their 4th Annual Concert Benefiting THON tonight and tomorrow night at 7 p.m. in 102 Forum. Tickets — good for both nights — are $5 and all proceeds are For the Kids.

Friday night’s lineup will be packed with solo and duo acoustic performances from members of the Songwriter’s Club. This is the calmer, more mellow night where the artists can showcase a set of four to five songs.

In contrast, Saturday night will be filled with the music of four “Full Band Acts.”

The opening act will be folk duo Eric Faust and Mike D. Mulligan. This act will be followed by Pittsburgh-based Port Vue, who will be playing their first show in Happy Valley. The night will unfold with a set from Flashback Forward, a popular four-piece band in the Penn State music scene. The show will end with a performance by The Wondershop Showdown, the self-described “nine-piece ska-turned-progressive-alternative band,” who will be playing at THON 2013.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. both nights, so come out, donate $5 to THON, and watch some incredible acts from the Songwriter’s Club and the Penn State music scene.
