Autumn Alive 2012: Fireworks, Kings, and Costumes

By: Olivia Adams

There were a lot of fire­works and roy­alty at Ferris State’s annual fall music show, Autumn Alive, on Thursday, November 1.

Ferris State PRSSA contributed to the success of this event by taking on Autumn Alive as one of their clients.

Members of client relations promoted the event by creating press releases and had them published in various online media outlets.

Fireworks and We The Kings per­formed live in Wink Arena last Thursday. Students and area com­mu­nity mem­bers lined up early to get front row seats for the show. Guests came dressed head to toe in cos­tumes, glow sticks, and We The Kings gear.

Fireworks, a pop-punk band, from Metro-Detroit, opened the show Thursday night.

“It was great per­form­ing for Ferris,” said Chris Mojan, gui­tarist for Fireworks. “Everyone in the crowd was cool and every­one who ran the stage was awesome.”

Followed by Fireworks there was a cos­tume con­test on stage. Students were encour­aged to wear their Halloween cos­tumes and enter the cos­tume con­test, which was judged by Fireworks. The win­ners received tick­ets to Turn Up The Good, a meet and greet with the bands, and a gift cer­tifi­cate to Quinn’s Music.

After the cos­tume con­test, We The Kings kicked off their performance like none before. The lights went low and the song “Ball So Hard” by Jay-Z and Kanye West shook the roof while We The Kings ran on stage dressed in Halloween cos­tumes. They tran­si­tioned straight into their song “She Takes Me High” which cre­ated a mem­o­rable start to the concert.

We The Kings surprised the audi­ence Thursday night by announcing that they were film­ing Autumn Alive for the music video of their new sin­gle called “Party, Fun, Love, & Radio.”

Students, com­mu­nity mem­bers, and Music Industry Management stu­dents had a great time at this year’s Autumn Alive. All of the hard work and plan­ning by MIMA contribution of its sponsors, and the assistance of PRSSA, made for an unfor­get­table night.
