Koji to Rock the House, Literally

Posted by Marcus Correll on 10/05 at 04:21 PM

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

and finally…

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.

Marcus, I just stumbled on your post and smiled. Not that I would know any of the artists, I am sorry but I don’t. The reason I smiled is that I have always been a supporter of an indie music. So I am really glad to see you doing the same.
I think underground is too often neglected by the main music press, especially here in Europe. You really have to make it to be graced even with a paragraph.
So yeah, well done with this and your work towards writing career in music industry.
