SOMA To Host Annual Fall Concert At Chronic Town This Saturday

SOMA and Downtown State College’s beloved record store and music venue Chronic Town are partnering to host a concert this Saturday night featuring both local talent and acts from across the country. Artists Diet Cig, Sales, Honeydiu, and Delsym Mandela will perform.


SOMA, Students Organizing the Multiple Arts, is a student group that strives to cultivate the music and arts scene in the State College area. Throughout the year, the club hosts live music events, visual art showcases, and local festivals to showcase the work of artists at Penn State and in the State College area as a whole.

SOMA is best known for its annual Arts Crawl, a festival in April with local bands, art exhibits, and activities for students and locals. Though not as big as Arts Crawl, this Saturday’s performance is the club’s second largest annual event.

SOMA’s 2015 annual fall performance featured artist Alex G.

The event will be even larger this year with two bands headlining the concert — Diet Cig and SALES, along with local guests Honeydiu and Delsym Mandels. Delsym Mandela is a crowd favorite from State College house shows and Honeydiu will make its debut Saturday. Diet Cig is best known for its “slop pop” performances, while SALES has a notable drum and production sound that accompanies its relaxing guitar melodies and vocals to contrast Diet Cig.

If you’re looking for a new way to spend your Saturday night or a place to deal with or respectfully celebrate the results of the Big Ten Championship Game, the concert at Chronic Town is the place to be and costs just $5.
