The stands of the Bryce Jordan Center began to fill back up this morning for the second day of the Interfraternity Council/Panhellenic Dance Marathon, indicated by risen signs and letters.
The signs and letters bobbed to the tune of songs performed by Gates Tomorrow, a Hershey-based band with guitarist and Four Diamonds Child Michael Broda, as previously reported.
Around the stands, fraternities and sororities are displaying their Greek letters, while commonwealth campuses like Altoona and Berks spell out their campus names. Also among the crowd is a variety of inflatable objects, such as beach balls, animals and other objects.
Signs with dancer faces are also being displayed, showing support for their dancers dancing below.
Playing different genres of music, Gates Tomorrow began their set with "Johnny B. Goode" by Chuck Berry, and afterward gained a lot of crowd attention with their own version of "I Wanna Dance with Somebody," by Whitney Houston.
Following, they played the Goo Goo Dolls Hit "Slide," another crowd favorite that dancers and people in the stands sang along to.
The crowd chanted along with the tune of "Seven Nation Army" by the White Stripes, which is a common chant at Penn State football games. Gates Tomorrow then quickly transitioned to "Sweet Child o Mine" by Guns N Roses. The crowd continued to sing along with the band.
The band ended their set with "Don't Stop Believin'," by Journey, and a word from Broda.
"As a four diamonds kid, I would just like to thank you guys," he said. "You guys are awesome."
