Music Monday: Spring Concerts Spotlight

Several big concert announcements were made last week, featuring a wide variety of artists coming to Penn State this spring. Although we’re still waiting for the weather to get warmer, here are seven tracks that prove these shows are sure to make your spring semester a little brighter.

Now that Lauryn Hill will be coming to the Bryce Jordan Center on May 4, it’s only appropriate to have her start off the Music Monday playlist. The music video to “Everything is Everything” shows New York City as a record spinning on a turntable to the tune of Hill’s lyrical genius.

Movin On’s headliner, A$AP Rocky, was announced last week along with three more names on this playlist. The instrumental to “Fashion Killa” is catchy enough for any hip-hop fan. Add A$AP Rocky’s chill rhymes and cool flow to the mix and you’ve got a remedy for the Monday blues.

Fitz and the Tantrums is another band that will be performing at Movin On 2014. They are know for many pop-rock singles, but “MoneyGrabber” might be their most familiar one. Get a glimpse of what to expect on April 26 by listening to this soul-filled smash hit.

Aloe Blacc is one of the most popular artists visiting Penn State this semester. He rose to fame with songs like “I Need a Dollar” and “The Man,” as well as his collaboration with Avicii last year on “Wake Me Up.” Here is Aloe Blacc’s acoustic rendition of the dance floor classic.

Sky Ferreira is the fourth name announced to play Movin’ On. This 21-year-old singer-songwriter released her first full-length album last year, featuring songs like “Boys,” “24 Hours,” and “I Blame Myself.”

Jam band Papadosio will be performing at State Fest on May 3. Their sound is a reminder that festival season is right around the corner, which is why “Find Your Cloud” is the sixth song on the playlist.

Huey Mack will also be at State Fest this semester, bringing his hip-hop repertoire with songs like “Country Roads,” “Pretending Perfection,” and “Take It All Back.”
