Anyone who has not seen One Days Notice, perform live before is missing out. The punk rock band, which is based out of Cleveland has been seen on the 2010 Vans Warped Tour Ernie Ball Stage and in the Cleveland Musical Festival, plans to give Kent State students and fans a show worth attending at The Rathskeller this Saturday night at 9 p.m.

“Everyone planning on coming to the show this weekend is in for a real treat,” said Justin Albaugh, the bass player in ODN. “We always put on a fun and energetic live show and get the audience involved and get them to come up on stage.”

One Days Notice has played regionally in other states and in popular venues throughout the Ohio area including Peabody’s, The Grog Shop and The Phantasy, but this Saturday will be their first time performing at The Rathskeller.

“We usually play The Outpost Concert Club in Kent, which always makes for an awesome show, but we are really excited to play on-campus,” Albaugh said. “We love playing college towns and to college crowds, it’s always a great time.”

ODN was asked by one of the students putting on the show to play. They had heard of The Rathskeller before and have been working hard to get a show booked there.

“It’s right on campus and it gives a lot more students a chance to come see us live who do not have the transportation to get to Cleveland,” Albaugh said. “It seems like a great venue for us to get our music exposed to more people.”

For the upcoming show, ODN plans to introduce the audience to everything off of their new EP, “…That’s What She Said.” They will also be performing a few of their newest songs that haven’t been recorded yet.

“We will be playing everything new and a Lady Gaga cover of “Just Dance.”” Albaugh said. “It is one of our favorite songs to play in the set and there is a really unique part in the bridge where we throw in a little bit of rapping. Our fans and audience always seem to enjoy that one.”

As a band, ODN is looking forward to the show, not only because they get to play for a college crowd, but for what they will gain from the performance.

“We want to make new fans, meet some new faces and make some connections so we can come back to play Kent State soon,” Albaugh said. “And of course, we want to make the evening as fun as possible for everyone involved.”

ODN will have plenty of merchandise for sale after the show. They have two T-shirts, hats, girl tank tops, stickers and their new CD.

Other local bands on the bill are Lights Camera Distractions, Maker and The Initiative. ODN says they have never played with any of the bands on the lineup, but they have looked up their music and they look forward to sharing the stage with them.

Tickets to the show are free for Kent State students and $2 for non-students.
