3 AM Tokyo Pumps Up The BJC With A Wide Range Of Music

Though it wasn’t quite 3 a.m. (spoilers, sorry dancers), and State College certainly isn’t Tokyo, 3 AM Tokyo club took the stage at the Bryce Jordan Center, entertaining THON with a fast-moving set of covers that featured EDM songs combined with pop and rock hits of the past few years.

The group made it clear that the energy would be high from the start, opening with Avicii’s “Levels.” The band’s instruments and their live sound complimented the EDM track’s energy and beat, and it seemed clear that THON was into it. They continued down the line with more EDM songs, including Steve Aoki’s “Delerious,” throwing in Walk The Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance,” foreshadowing the rest of the show.

After playing Galantis’ “Runaway,” and a few bars of “Zombie Nation,” the group veered down a path filled with rock hits, starting with the classic anthem “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” before a round of “Seven Nation Army.” After playing “Sweet Child O’Mine,” the group went on a short binge of songs from the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Still trying to keep its EDM influence, 3 AM Tokyo reeled off “All The Small Things,” “Fat Lip,” “The Anthem,” and a slightly strange rendition of “I Write Sins, Not Tragedies.”

Clearly interested in playing songs in chunks by genre, 3 AM Tokyo’s range got even wider, rattling off rap tunes, starting with “N***** In Paris,” followed by “All I Do Is Win.” The band clearly had some trouble replacing some of the less kid-friendly lyrics when they followed with “Up In Here,” and “Get Low,” but the crowd loved it nonetheless.

The band finished with what was probably the most entertaining part of the show, bringing out four decorated trash cans and neon, glowing drumsticks, while jamming out to “Clarity,” by Zedd, and finally closing out the set with “Save The World,” by Swedish House Mafia. The end of the show gave THON-goers a much needed break after 30 minutes of high energy and interesting music combinations.
