State In The Real – Penn State Music Scene

16 DAYS TILL BONNAROO

 

Today’s featured artist is The Kooks:

“A self-described ‘pop’ band, their music is primarily influenced by the 1960s British Invasion movement and post-punk revival of the new millennium. With songs described as ‘catchy as hell’, The Kooks have experimented in several genres including rock, Britpop, pop, reggae, and ska, at times being described as ‘a less severe Arctic Monkeys.'” (from Wikipedia)

I’ve loved this band since I first heard them in high school. Now I can’t BELIEVE I’m gonna get to see them!!
