Foster the People Coming to BJC Sept. 5

Get pumped up, Penn State — Foster the People will perform at the Bryce Jordan Center on Friday, Sept. 5.

The group, known for hits like “Best Friend,” “Houdini,” and the aforementioned “Pumped Up Kicks,” will be promoting its second album, “Supermodel,” which was released in March. Founded by Mark Foster in 2009, the group’s most famous and controversial song, “Pumped Up Kicks,” became a surprise radio hit in 2011 and garnered the group a Grammy nomination. Foster the People may be considered a one-hit wonder to most so far, but its catalog is familiar to fans of indie-rock. The announcement is a refreshing one for fans of indie-rock in State College. Expect to hear a mix of older hits and new music when they come to town.

The concert will kick off the first home football weekend of the year, with the Nittany Lions slated to play Akron the following day. Tickets for the concert will go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m for the general public. Students can receive subsidized tickets for $20 from UPAC Wednesday and Thursday starting at 10 a.m.
