Yellowcard to rock the Jordan Center Nov. 1

September 15, 2004

University Park, Pa. -- Punk-pop quintet Yellowcard will perform at 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 1, at The Bryce Jordan Center on Penn State's University Park campus.

Opening acts are The Starting Line, The Matches and Craig's Brother. The concert is being sponsored by the University Park Allocation Committee.

Yellowcard, who signed with Capitol Records in 2003, is currently riding on their RIAA-certified gold album Ocean Avenue. The album's title track continues to impact Top 40 Radio as well as MTV. The group has made its mark on the music network, as they performed on the 2004 MTV Video Awards while also walking away with the show's MTV2 Award. Yellowcard also earned a spot on this summer's Warped Tour.

The Pennsylvania-based quartet The Starting Line made an immediate impact with their first release Say It Like You Mean It, an album that sold 300,000 copies. The young band's non-stop touring schedule has included stints with Good Charlotte, New Found Glory, and Sum 41.

The Matches also just recently finished touring with this summer's Warped Tour. Their album E. Von Dahl Killed the Locals was nominated for "Outstanding Debut Album" at the California Music Awards. The group has also shared the stage with Reel Big Fish, Zebrahead, Matchbook Romance and Goldfinger.

Craig's Brother is said to be the undiscovered goldmine of punk rock music. The incredible guitar parts and meaningful lyrics were apparent in the band's first commercial album Homecoming. They continued their display of pure melody rock with their current album Epidemic, a compilation that reveals a musical talent unreachable by other bands.

Seating for the concert will be in an intimate, theatre-style set-up.

Reserved and general admission floor tickets cost $23.50. Tickets for students with a Penn State ID will be $9.75 with a limit of one ticket per ID. Tickets will go on sale for Penn State students at 1 p.m. Friday, Sept. 24, at the Jordan Ticket Center, Eisenhower Auditorium and Downtown Theatre.

Tickets will be available to the general public at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 25, at the Jordan Ticket Center, Eisenhower Auditorium, Penn State Downtown Theatre, Altoona campus ticket outlet and all Ticketmaster locations. Tickets also may be purchased by calling (814) 865-5555 or (800) 863-3336 and online at http://www.bjc.psu.edu
