The best kept secret in music


"radar Station gets what it needs at the Creepy Crawl"

Most of the teens stuck around for the next act, Pennington, from Greenville College, about an hour east of the Lou. The band was rocking some fairly standard Maverick Records emo, but they rocked it, pulling it all off with pure passion. The good old-fashioned three-guitar assault gave Pennington an edge, a deep sound they used to bury the audience. (More members equals more rock, no matter what the White Stripes say.) Their stage presence was great too, full of hopping and flailing and stomping with the beat. And the two singers offer the ladies both kinds of indie hunks -- one dark-haired and bespectacled cool, the other blond and surfer-shaggy. In the middle of one song, which was (of course) about being dumped, the shaggy one delivered my all-time favorite emo moment: In a lull, he leaned forward and offhandedly muttered, "This girl left me for a guy in Greenpeace," just before the band exploded into a frenzy of kick-your-ass.

Feeling a bit camera shy


An inspiring blend of melodic harmonies, double melodies, and energetic layered guitars coupled with passionate lyrics make for a captivating live show. Don't be mistaken, we will have you on your feet with timed jumps, explosive choruses, and the pure rock-out emotion of the band; Pennington will grab you and never let you go. (plus we wouldn't be suprised if you left with one of our hooks stuck in your head) Meeting at greenville college in the fall of 2003, pennington formed with a sound that combines melodic beauty with the raw emotion of indie rock. We feel that today, too many bands have well produced cd's and then deliver a poor performance live disappointing their fans. Pennington brings to the table the same quality live as they do on their studio recordings without needed a fill-in musician to tour live with them like many bands of today. Lyrically, this band wants to be real with it's fans. Life is hard, but there is also a hope and a future. We want to be there for our fans in their time of need musically, whether we are conveying the sadness of life from our own experiences or trying to encourage them to face another day.
