Gym Class Heroes to perform at Falcon Stadium

Dafne Bravo

The brand Tostitos is presenting a free concert/event this Thursday Dec. 13 at Falcon Stadium.

Gym Class Heroes, a popular group that formed in New York, will be attending this event benefiting and in honor to our local veterans.

According to lastfm.com, GCH formed in 1997 and it began playing at parties, moved up to festivals such as Warped Tour and it slowly moved its way up to fame.

There are four members, Eric Roberts as bassist, Travie McCoy lead singer, Matt McGinley in the drums and Disashi Lumumba-Kasongo guitarist.

Their musical influences sets them apart from most bands, even though they do not label themselves as a hip hop group.

The latest album is “The Papercut Chronicles II,” according to all music.com the album is bringing them [GCH] back to the more organic band-like sounds with the hip hop influence that has made them popular throughout their career.

In 2006 the band’s single “Cupid’s Chokehold” reached some of the top spots on the Billboard Hot 100.

Travis McCoy, lead singer and ex-boyfriend of popular singer Katy Perry is no stranger to helping others, as of last year he was on a humanitarian trip across the world to spread awareness on HIV and AIDS.

On this upcoming local event, for every ticket redeemed, Tostitos will be donating $1 to our school’s Veteran Scholarship Fund.

Undecided major Natalie Perez commented, “I think it’s a nice gesture that Tostitos and Gym Class Heroes are collaborating on to help our community.”

“Not many celebrities nowadays care so much to help others,” she added.

Downey’s Warren high school band and color guard will be present at this event and are going to be performing as well.

Both the ASCC office and student activities center are the locations in which students and any citizen are able to obtain tickets.

Judicial Affairs, Niki Jones said, “Anyone can get their tickets just by showing their identification such as student card or even drivers license.”

Local radio stations such as 102.7 KIIS FM were recently providing tickets and spreading the word on the event.

The gates will open at 5 p.m. and the event will begin at 6:30 pm, limited seating available.
