Atlas Soundtrack added its unique blend of reggae, hip-hop and rock to the Movin’ On stage this afternoon.
MC Drew Jackson encouraged the crowd to dance along to stay warm in the gusty winds and spurts of rain.
“I see you all groovin’ out there,” he said. “Keep it poppin’.”
And poppin’ was how it was kept, some audience members said.
Michael Henry said he appreciated the band’s individual sound, which he said is unlike anything else you’ll hear.
“It was funky,” Henry (sophomore-toxiology) said.
Joe Chillson, a University of Pittsburgh student who’s visiting PSU for the weekend, agreed.
Chillson (sophomore-political science and writing) said he thought the group sounded like a product of some popular music.
“They sounded like what would happen if Sublime and Rage Against the Machine had a baby and wanted to be a slap bass,” he said.
The group played at 4:30 p.m. instead of the scheduled for 4 p.m. because of a delay.
Atlas Soundtrack was the second of four local bands that competed for spots at Movin’ On.
