The following is an account of VICTIM and Another Day Dawns’ show at Easton’s One Centre Square on Friday, August 18, received in a mysterious email from someone who referred to himself only as “Mr. Grimm.” We enjoyed the mysterious Mr. Grimm’s account of the evening, so we decided to give it a whirl here on LVU. Let us know what you think!
It’s going to be a big weekend out there. As you can see below, five of our six Can’t-Miss Shows of the Week happen between Friday and Sunday.
We’re going to be busy and need some extra caffeine, but it will be a ton of fun! Let’s go!

Due to an overwhelming response to Rocking the Valley’s call for performers for its Aug. 27 Tommy Zito benefit, the organization has indicated that the evening’s bill is now complete by announcing the event’s full lineup.
On Saturday night, the excitement of those inside of a packed Musikfest Cafe was unmistakable, as the sold-out crowd came through to hear Billy Bauer Band pay tribute to one of its biggest influences — and one of the most successful touring artists of all time — Dave Matthews Band.
The local music community is coming together for renowned local entertainer Tommy Zito, who was recently admitted to a hospital after falling ill. A GoFundMe page launched on Friday already has more than $1,200 toward its $25,000 goal to support Tommy and his wife, Jan, as the musician continues to receive treatment.
In my first venture back out onto the scene since Sunday’s Musikfest finale, I found myself back on familiar ground, as I headed down to SteelStacks for Billy Bauer’s weekly open mic on Thursday night.
This is the first weekend in three weekends that there’s not a festival happening right in our backyard.
We haven’t even gotten to the inaugural edition of the Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series, and already, the movement is growing throughout South Bethlehem.
