SPA To Host ‘The Driver Era’ For Concert November 28

Penn State’s Student Programming Association (SPA) will host The Driver Era for a free concert on Tuesday, November 28. The event will kick off at 8 p.m. in the HUB’s Alumni Hall.

The concert will also feature the opener “almost monday,” which is best known for its single “only wanna dance” and was featured on Elton John’s Rocket Hour.

The Driver Era is made up of brothers Rocky and Ross Lynch, who have been releasing music together since 2009 under various band names. The band has amassed over 30 million followers across social media and over 300 million streams. Apart from music, Ross Lynch is also known for his acting roles in “My Friend Dahmer,” “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” and, of course, Disney’s “Austin and Ally.”

The band’s 2019 album, “X,” kickstarted The Driver Era, which was coming back into the music scene after the disbanding of the duo’s former band, R5. In the Driver Era’s 2022 album, “Summer Mixtape,” the band further cultivates its sound through a focus on emotion.

Between acclaim from Rolling Stone, MTV, and Paper, and the band’s current 60-stop world tour, the Lynches have displayed their talent and passion for music.

Students must RSVP for the event to secure tickets, which will be available at 7 p.m. on November 24 through OrgCentral.

As always, The Driver Era’s concert is free for Penn State Students to attend and funded by their student-initiated fee.
