Whoever said house shows were dead is wrong when it comes to this week’s performance of Koji. The songwriter/activist is playing an underground show with some local artists tomorrow, Oct. 6. It’ll take place at 221 E Park Ave at 8pm.
The show is put together with student members from the Song Writers Club and Asylum, two student-run music appreciation clubs on campus. There will be a $3-5 donation at the door, so expect to throw a five spot.
For those unfamiliar with the music, the lineup is as follows:
Pat Gallagher - an acoustic rock/pop musician from the State College area
Pat Troester - a folk-rock musician of the State College area currently working on a full-length album
A Day Without Love - an acoustic indie band from Glenside, PA
Matt Whittle - a folk-pop artists known for his band Matthew and the Judes from Bucks County, PA
Koji-a solo acoustic musician signed to Run For Cover Records with his first full-length to be released soon. He’s a native Pennsylvanian, hailing from Harrisburg, but has already made a name for himself outside the state. He’s working on a tour throughout the northeast part of the country.
This show will prove to be a stepping stone in the revival of house shows (like Super Mash Bros playing a fraternity) and will be a great night for both musicians and fans alike.
One of the organizers for the event, Drew Magid of Asylum says, “Come out to support independent music in a cool environment. It’s different than the usual concert venues, and it’s something I’d like to see more of in the State College area.”
Well Drew, take one step at a time and maybe music lovers like you can revive the underground scene.
