The Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex’s first big event of the semester will feature food, fun and a ’70s psychedelic rock atmosphere.

Zoso: The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience will crash the KCAC at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

Mark Mathe, KCAC senior event manager, encourages students to attend the performance. He is expecting a sizable turnout with a variety of demographics.

“Led Zeppelin is one of those bands that grows with generations,” Mathe said.

Zoso, named after Led Zeppelin’s fourth album, is a widely-recognized tribute band that formed in 1995 with the hopes of reproducing the golden era of music.

Zoso has performed at music festivals such as Bonnaroo and Rib America Festival. Their target audience is mainly adolescents, and they seek to establish new die-hard Led Zeppelin fans.

The concert is open to the public and tickets range from $25 to $35. Student tickets are
discounted at $15 and are limited to third–section seating. Tickets can be purchased online at iuptix.com or at the KCAC box office located in the main lobby.

There will be free parking at IUP’s Miller Stadium, located next to the KCAC.
