Miss Sam Adams show at Penn State on 9/30/11? SITR caught a not so good quality video for you from the show and wrote up what you missed.  Sam Adams – Some Chordz

Sam Adams took over Alumni Hall last night in an event hosted by Late Night SPA (Penn State’s Student Programming Association). The line began forming as early as 5:30 pm last night awaiting the arrival of Boston’s finest.Sam Adams 24, from Cambridge, Massachuettes broke out into the “Frat Rap” world in 2008 with his remix to Asher Roth’s I Love College, I Hate College (Remix). Since then, this star soccer player has been a rapper on the rise by putting out one EP (Boston’s Boy), and two Mixtapes (Boston’s Opening Day, Party Records) in 2010.If you weren’t canning this weekend for THON, you were at this show. Doors were set to open at 9:30pm, and the line had stretched from Alumni Hall to Schreyers Honors College. At capacity, Alumni Hall was set to hold 1,100 guests. Once surpassing this, SPA let as many students in as they had wristbands allowing over 1,300 students to get in.Opening act DJ Dibs (David Belliveau, Penn State) set the tone for a crazy night. He mixed and mastered some chart topping songs for a half hour set. The entire crowd was dancing and enjoying the night patiently awaiting Sammy Adams. And it wasn’t long until he was seen running on stage in a black hoodie and the energy in Alumni Hall was taken to another level. Putting his own remix on our We Are… Penn State chant, the crowd screamed every time he started it. He even started a Fuck Pittsburgh chant that was heard numerous times throughout the night. Sammy played many crowd favorites including I Hate College (Remix), Some Chordz, and No Speak Americano. Acknowledging the heat index inside Alumni Hall, he even started to pass out his own water bottles to students in the crowd. During the set Sam said, “Penn State tonight you are UNREAL”, and agreed that tonight’s show was one to remember. After his hour set, he came back for an encore of his current number one single, Driving Me Crazy to end the night perfectly.

We’d like to give a special thanks to Sam Adams, and DJ Dibs for putting on a great show and Penn State’s SPA for all their hard work last night.
