State In The Real – Penn State Music Scene

SOMA Arts Crawl Applications ACTIVE

Calling all musicians and artists: A couple days ago, SOMA (Students Organizing the Multiple Arts) announced the official February 28th applications deadline for their annual spring music and art festival, Arts Crawl.  The event, which is scheduled for Friday, April 17th, will feature talent both internal and external to the State College area.

For those of you who don’t already have the pleasure of knowing what Arts Crawl is, allow me to be your guide: Extending throughout the northern portion of campus, Arts Crawl is a festival-style event designed to celebrate the arts.  With over four different venues, soloists and bands are given time slots to perform original music, and artists are provided with spaces to display their original pieces (examples featured above, artists TBD.)  The evening wraps up with a widely-known (widely-known in an underground sense) headlining act.  In the past, headliners have included Why?, Ramona Falls, Future Islands, and most recently Kevin Devine.

We’ll be sure to announce the 2015 headliner once the gods grace us with the knowledge, but in the meantime, apply apply apply!
