PHOTOS: Alex Mery & The Townsmen at SteelStacks Open Mic w/ Billy Bauer
After gathering with Alex Mery & The Townsmen and our community partners at Fig Bethlehem Thursday night for mysterious activities…
…we had the chance to enjoy our friends as the featured artist once more at SteelStacks Open Mic with Billy Bauer. The local folk-punk trio played an extended set mostly consisting of selections from their upcoming EP, “Folklore,” including “Elegy” and the single “Lay Down Arms.”
Overall, we were reminded why Bauer’s open mic remains one of the Valley’s most popular. The atmosphere is one that creates a fellowship, brought together by the singer-songwriter’s love of local music and supportive demeanor. After opening the night with an original tune, Bauer lets the other musicians in the room get to work while fostering a listening room atmosphere inside the ArtsQuest Center’s Creativity Commons.
