The newspaper is hiring for next fall, too. Being a writer (or a hopeful writer, as this is my first assignment that I'll be able to actually get started on) I am automatically in the running for a position and will be considered a little ahead of other non-writer applicants. That's good, because The Penn pays writers well and probably has good wages for its full time staff as well. Besides, a career in journalism might be fun :) It will certainly give me a chance to exercise my writing and social skills.
Right. So I was talking about the band(s). There are five of them performing, which means short sets and lots of pauses to change them. A Google search for Straylight Run, the headlining band, reveals that yes, they are indeed emo. Oh, joy. The song titles on their music page are appropriately angst-ridden, and the music is delightfully soft. There's a girl in the band, too. That rocks.
I'd best go look up the other bands so I can get ready for what I'm jumping into tonight ^_^
