Fest Friday continued into the night at Launch Music Conference in Lancaster, and believe me when I say: I’m glad I stuck around. There was some insane talent still to come as the sun set.
In particular, there was plenty of variety to be had, from the soulful (Angela Michele) to the unique and raucous (The Stonewall Vessels); from the bright and ambient (June Divided) to straight-up, Star Wars-themed metal (Galactic Empire). Indeed, Fest Friday’s nighttime lineup provided something for everyone.
We weren’t done after that, though, because we still had to see good friend and the Valley’s own Pentley Holmes crush it late-night at Marion Court. Pentley’s originals from “Rip Out My Heart” kept people dancing into the night, so much that the crowd earned a couple of Pentley’s soulful, signature covers.
Photos from our magical evening are below. Enjoy!
