Cash Cash Peforms Energetic Show In Alumni Hall

I never imagined myself ever wanting to go to an EDM concert, but after witnessing Cash Cash perform on Friday night during SPA’s LateNight events series, I’d be easily convinced to go to another one.

I always thought it’d be weird having electronic dance music acts in Alumni Hall, considering most EDM DJs gravitate towards Levels or the Bryce Jordan Center when they come to State College. However, Alumni Hall served as the perfect setting for the show, bringing the same intensity within the crowd as either of the aforementioned arenas once the group hit the stage.Cash Cash

The group started its show off with a bang, performing its current single “Surrender.” Current Top 40 favorites seeped into the set, including ILoveMakonnen’s “Tuesday” as well as Cash Cash’s remixes to Clean Bandit’s “Rather Be” and “Alive” by Krewella. Since hearing the “Alive” remix, I can’t stop listening to it.

If you didn’t give the group a chance, you may write them off as a one-hit wonder with “Take Me Home” featuring vocalist Bebe Rexha. However, the trio has countless remixes and original songs that make it hard not to consider Cash Cash one of the best EDM groups in the genre right now.

Though the group started out as a band with an electronic-pop sound you’d most likely hear at a Vans Warped Tour concert (fun fact: they did play for the tour in 2009), they took the right turn transferring to an EDM style. Their talent as both producers and musicians is clear in their music, and the pride they have for their work is evident on stage.

Their ability to get a small, intimate crowd going in Alumni Hall is a skill very few have. You can have the best set lined up, but if you don’t have a stage presence, the show is not worth the price of admission.

These guys have the “it” factor along with a lot of potential going for them. If they’re not at a Tiesto-esque status within the next few years, then there is a serious problem.
