Acclaimed Chicago rapper Noname will be joining Penn State W.O.R.D.S members, Shalom Dubas and Joy Postell on stage on Friday, September 30th for one of the most exciting spoken word events of the year. The event is organized by Happy Valley Music Label (HVML) and will be held at Chronic Town.

Noname (Fatimah Warner), is an experienced rapper and poet, known for her conversational flow and thoughtful lyrics. Alongside the brilliant Telefone, Noname spent 2016 providing skillful features for the music of other prominent Chicagoans, including Chance the Rapper, Mick Jenkins and Saba. Rebecca Aronow, a promotor for Happy Valley Music Label said that the organization booked Noname as “she’s a truly inspiring artist who offers an important perspective and voice that isn’t as often recognized as it should be in the music world, the rap world, and on a smaller scale, the State College music scene.”

For many students at Penn State, finding their “fit” is important.

That “fit” comes in many ways: club sports, Greek life, academic and professional organizations, and THON.

When Regan Bortz was a freshman, she found her fit with THON. Bortz was a Dancer Relations Committee Member, one of many tasked with planning the health, safety, and enjoyment of the 708 THON dancers during THON weekend.

From there, Bortz went through the ranks and is now a THON 2018 Communications Captain.

Whether you’re in search of entertainment on a long road trip or just looking for something to pass the time during a summer job shift, podcasts are a great way to give your brain some much needed stimulation during your time off from school. Podcast topics range from politics to pop culture and everything in between, making it difficult to determine what’s worthy of a listen. We’ve done some work for you on that front – here are ten podcasts you should be listening to this summer!

Pod Save America | News & Politics

Lovers of liberal politics will quickly become Friends of the Pod. Pod Save America’s hosts, a team of former Obama staffers, examine current issues through the lens of the left. They discuss topics of pertinence, featuring a variety of guests. The semi-weekly production lives up to its tagline, “a no-bullshit conversation about politics,” and is sure to provoke thought and provide a good laugh.

NPR Politics | News & Politics

For a less biased look at the current political news, NPR Politics releases a weekly roundup and shorter podcasts on big political events throughout the week. While the dependability of public radio carries through, NPR Politics is a more casual conversation on current events. It’s perfect for anyone looking to stay up to date, but on their own schedule.

Pop Up Ave returns Sept. 23

Pop band A R I Z O N A to perform

Dozens of makers and vintage sellers along with a beer garden and food trucks will line South Garner Street Saturday for Pop Up Ave, Centre County’s only curated outdoor urban-style flea market.

Pop Up Ave was founded by Andrea and Brad Groznik, a couple who were inspired to bring the flea market to State College after the pair lived in New York City for a time, a place where fleas like Pop Up Ave were commonplace.

In April, the cofounders hosted another Pop Up event, bringing 3,000 residents and students downtown to enjoy the festivities.

“The momentum for this event keeps increasing and we’re so happy people enjoy it,” Andrea Groznik, Pop Up Ave co-founder, said in a release.

In addition to the vendors and beer garden at the event, live music from Eric Ian Farmer, Hops and Vines, and The Psychic Beat along with DJ sets between performances by Count Bass D, Evan Savage and The Comeback Kid will fill the air during the market.

Pop Up Ave will take place Saturday, Sept. 23 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the Garner Street Parking Lot on S. Garner Street.

More information on the event can be found on Pop Up Ave’ website here.
