Indie Pop Band Bleachers To Perform On April 24

Penn State’s Student Program Association will be hosting indie pop act Bleachers on Friday, April 24 as a part of its LateNight series. The event will be called “Bleachers and Features.”

Bleachers was founded by Jack Antonoff, its lone member, in 2014. While he was touring with his other band, Fun (also known as “fun.”), Antonoff secretly began working on music of his own. Under the name Bleachers, he released his first album, “Strange Desire,” in the summer of 2014. The record was a smash hit and included popular singles such as “Rollercoaster” and “I Wanna Get Better”:

At 10 p.m. on April 24, Bleachers will play Alumni Hall in the HUB to perform a ticketless show that requires student IDs to get in. Along with the music, SPA will have a photobooth, a t­-shirt making station, street sign making, and vanity license plates — the second part of the “Bleachers and Features” title. Everything at the event will be free for attending students.

Visit SPA’s website for more information about the organization, LateNight, and other SPA events.
