If you didn’t get “Safely On Your Way” to the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks on Thursday night, you missed out.
Those who headed to the South Bethlehem entertainment complex had a chance to hear Alex Mery & The Townsmen as the featured artist. The trio have cultivated a tight and unique sound that effectively straddles the border between gentle folk instrumentation and the lighter, more emo side of pop punk.
Generally speaking, Alex Mery & The Townsmen weren’t alone in bringing great sounds to SteelStacks on Thursday. Longtime Valley musician and SteelStacks Open Mic host Billy Bauer sounded great to open the night, and the evening was filled top to bottom with some of the great and, in a lot of cases, undiscovered talent in the region.
If this is what it’s like every Thursday night at SteelStacks, you can be sure that we’ll be making our way back before long!
