national acts

On special occasions, our room transforms into a cozy-yet-spacious venue with a large stage and top-notch sound & monitor system. Over the years, we've hosted recording artists such as Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Man Man, and the Dum Dum Girls and we continue to invite artistically-acclaimed bands and musicians in from all across the country.

Local scene

In addition to nationally touring artists, we strive to provide our audiences  with the best of the always-evolving local music scene in State College. Almost all touring acts that perform feature local musicians as openers, and we're also host to regional booking events that provide a variety of live music that's thriving outside of the mainstream.

dJ nights

Even if we're not hosting shows, we're always playing great music at Chronic Town! From time to time, local notable DJs will stop by as well to give our clientele a sample of their music collections. These events vary in theme from the all-vinyl jazz showcase "Outer Spaceways Inc", to the queer-friendly eighties synthpop known as "Technique".
