Love & Theft Bring Upbeat Country Vibe To Movin’ On

Penn Staters began to really file into the Movin’ On pit as some country tunes were pumped out of the Movin’ On speakers at the IM fields. Love & Theft, a country group from Nashville, livened up a beautiful Friday afternoon with a tight country set.

The crowd in front of the side stage got bigger and bigger as Love & Theft performed some of their hits like “Runnin’ Out of Air” and “Let’s Get Drunk and Make Friends.” The light and bright sound of the group really came through throughout their set.

The talented band took on some popular songs as covers such as “Dust On The Bottle” by David Lee Murphy and “Free Fallin'” by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. A cover of “Folsom Prison Blues” by Johnny Cash was especially impressive with some pretty wild guitar, keyboard, and drum solos.

The group sounded very crisp and well-rehearsed, nailing both their originals and their covers. It really felt like this was all meant to be as some southern jams were pumped out on a warm day here in Happy Valley. Love & Theft closed with their biggest hit, “Angel Eyes,” much to the joy of the growing crowd of students making their way up to the north side of campus.

Love & Theft has a new fan in yours truly.
