The Long Afternoon will “Rock the 80s” on Feb. 16 at the State Theatre

Please join State College’s long-running indie rockers The Long Afternoon on February 16, 2019, as we share the stage with some tremendously talented groups for the “Rock the 80’s” benefit concert at the State Theatre in State College, Pa.

The Long Afternoon emphasizes original material, but it’s an honor to revisit great 1980s music for the Bob Perks Fund.  We’ve performed at this event since its inception, and it’s always a blast. You’ll hear a wide variety of genres—the participating musicians tackle everything from hair metal to synthpop.

Without giving the whole thing away, here’s couple of teasers about this year’s performance by the Long Afternoon…

  1. We’re opening the show, so get there on time if you want to see us.
  2. Our song selections pay tribute to affectionate dives, hermit territories, and petrified crustaceans.
  3. The core band will be joined by two very special guests.

We couldn’t be more thrilled about playing at this year’s event, and we hope to see you there!  The event always sells out, so get tickets now.

In addition to us, you’ll see performances by local faves including Cousin Neddie, Cone of Silence, Spider Kelly, Giants of Science, JR Mangan Band, Tongue n Groove, Feats of Strength, Burn Unit, and Frackwater Jack.

To whet your appetite, here’s our 2015 performance of Prince classic from 1984, featuring Jeff in full purple splendour.  Enjoy!

J.-P.’s lovely wife, Felicia, captured video of our performance at the Rock the 80’s benefit concert last year.  Here’s our take on “A Million Miles Away” by the Plimsouls.
