A Beginner’s Guide to Movin’ On 2013

The final week of classes has nearly reached its end, as students are preparing for one of the biggest music events of the year: Movin’ On 2013.

Beginning tomorrow at 3 p.m., IM Field West will be transformed from a site of sporting events and Penn State tailgates into an enormous music festival. Before this FREE daylong concert takes place though, there are a few things everyone should be well aware of:

A.) Rules and Regulations: This is just a necessary bit of advice for all you newcomers (freshmen) to the show. This ain’t Woodstock, ladies and gentlemen. We have rules here. These are the NO’s cut and dry, straight from the Movin’ On website…

  1. No Drugs/Alcohol
  2. No Weapons
  3. No Smoking
  4. No Tailgating
  5. No Camping Out
  6. No Coolers
  7. No Lawn Chairs
  8. No Noisemakers (whatever that means)
  9. No Laser Pointers
  10. No Video Recording Equipment
  11. No Pets
  12. No Umbrellas

Now that we’ve got that out of the way…

B.) The Lineup: Here is the time schedule for each of the acts playing on Friday.

3 p.m.: The Wondershop Showdown is a Penn State ska band that played Movin’ On 2012 and are sure to bring the same amount of energy as they did last year. Since they played THON 2013, this band has played a number of shows at the Darkhorse Tavern and even released their first feature length album, A Night at the Movies. The band’s set list is sure to compile both catchy original songs and kick-ass covers!

3:35 p.m.: Automatic Habit is a pop-punk band from Philadelphia and the second act that won Movin’ On’s Battle of the Bands. Although they are new to the Penn State music scene, after listening to this original song it seems that they’ll fit in just fine.

4:15 p.m.: Kids These DaysThis seven-member indie rock band hails from Chicago and incorporates all sorts of sounds like drum, bass, guitar, brass and even some rapping. Their albums have been produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and are sure to bring an alternative sound to Movin’ On 2013.

5 p.m.: GlorianaThis country music act was added to the show by Penn State’s Student Programming Association. They’ve been on the music scene since 2008 and feature hit songs like “Wild at Heart” and “(Kissed You) Good Night.”

6:30 p.m.: Brand NewOne of the most popular Alt. Rock bands today, Brand New has entranced punk and emo kids since 2000. With four albums in their back pocket, there’s no wonder why they are being given a 1.5 hour long time slot.

8 p.m.: Big BoiThe stage name of rapper Antwan Patton, Big Boi first gained fanfare with Andre 3000 in the hip-hop duo Outkast. Now nearly two decades later, Big Boi has been working on his solo career, collaborating with the likes of Ludacris, T.I., and A$AP Rocky.

9:30 p.m.: MGMTThe headliner of the show that were announced last semester, MGMT is a psychedelic rock band with trippy hits like “Time to Pretend” and “Kids.” Now, the group plans on releasing their third studio album entitled MGMT. Check out their new single “Alien Days” here.

With the weather forecast predicting a sunny afternoon, a starry night, and a high of 60, there is no excuse not to come out to this awesome outdoor event. I better see you there!
