Those who love college and only need their good friends will have Asher Roth to party with when he visits Penn State’s Alumni Hall Dec. 7 at 10 p.m.
Penn State’s Student Programming Association LateNight is bringing the free concert to students and will feature Roth along with The White Panda, SPA revealed in a press release.
“It’s gonna be one big, awesome dance party,” SPA Marketing Chairwoman Megan Mansell said, adding it will also be high in energy.
Roth, who has been rapping since high school, first broke onto the mainstream music scene with the catchy anthem that quickly became a top hit for parties “I Love College” in 2009. He has since then put out one studio album, amongst mixtapes such as “The Greenhouse Effect Mixtape” and “Pabst and Jazz,” with a second slated to come out January 2013.
Mansell (senior-public relations) said rap concerts have gone over really well in the past and Roth will be no exception.
The White Panda is made up of two childhood friends, Procrast (Tom Evans) and DJ Griffi (Dan Griffith) with a shared love for mashup. With four albums under their belts, the most recent came out in March, they became one Soundcloud’s most-played artists in 2011, according to their website. They do “Mashup Monday,” which introduces a new track for their fans every Monday.
Mansell said SPA wanted The White Panda because electronic music and DJs are the trend right now and to be able to see them for free is a good opportunity for students.
Students with a valid Penn State photo I.D. will be let in on a first-come first-serve basis.
