Elements of Electric Dance Music concerts will be combined with a childhood pastime tonight with “Cosmic Mini Golf.”
The Student Programming Association and the Electric Dance Music Club are teaming up to host the event.
“Cosmic Mini Golf” will be held at 8 p.m. tonight in the HUB-Robeson Center’s Alumni Hall.
Local disc jockeys Keegan Tawa and Nikita Paige, also known as “N-Sinite,” will be performing.
“It’s kind of like mini golf and a dance party at the same time,” Megan Mansell, SPA’s marketing chair, said.
Heather Maggi, SPA’s entertainment chair, said that the performance stage and nine holes of golf will be surrounded by, “glow in the dark cosmic décor.”
Nicholas Rase, EDMC’s vice president, said that Tawa had previously performed last year at Penn State’s Movin’ On spring music festival.
He said that Tawa often plays live instruments at his shows, which Rase said sets him apart from other DJs.
“He does a lot with retro flash house style,” Rase (sophomore-math and Spanish) said.
Rase said both performers often spin at local fraternity parties and other events in the area.
Maggi (senior - film and video) said that she thinks “Cosmic Mini Golf” will be one of the most interactive events in the area.
She said that unlike the usual performances by musicians and comedians, this event will allow attendees to participate and converse.
“It’s pretty similar to the laser tag we have sometimes,” Mansell (senior-public relations) said.
Maggi said she thinks “Cosmic Mini Golf” will be a good welcome back event for the start of the semester because students will be able to catch up and meet new people. The event will also
be a good opportunity for students who have just transferred to Penn State this semester, Maggi said.
“I’m excited to see the hybrid of this music with an activity like mini golf,” Rase said.
Mansell said SPA and EDMC have collaborated in the past and is looking forward to working with the club again.
“You’re not going to want to miss it,” Rase said.
