A R I Z O N A Rocks The HUB In SPA Concert

Indie rock band A R I Z O N A performed at Penn State last night, pleasing the crowd in Heritage Hall during a concert hosted by Penn State’s Student Programming Association.

Despite its name, the band’s three members come from Glen Rock, NJ, or, in their words, “the part that calls it Taylor Ham.”

The group started tonight’s show with a three-intro song, including “Annie”, the first song on the band’s first album, GALLERY, and “Electric Touch”.

“Electric Touch” was co-written by the three members of the band and songwriter Julia Michaels. Michaels has also helped write songs for superstars like Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber. The song received a great applause from the crowd of students on hand.

As the night progressed, A R I Z O N A transitioned from its original work to covers of other popular songs. The most notable of these came when the trio covered “Passionfruit” by Drake.

The band released GALLERY, its first full-length album, earlier this year. A R I Z O N A will travel for two more shows on its current tour — one in Columbus and the other in San Jose.

Overall, it was a very fun night for those who came out, and admission was free as always, thanks to SPA.
