We have a new video from Easton’s Roi and the Secret People, just in time for the band’s acoustic performance at SouthSide 313 as part of the Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series.
South Bethlehem will come to life this Friday, September 1 for First Friday. With 13 live music performances for the Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series, special deals from merchants, and unique restaurant specials, the evening is sure to be one the Lehigh Valley won’t soon forget.
Here’s where you can join us this First Friday to be a part of the new, fresh monthly celebration of culture, music, and art:
Hear Kayla Avitabile perform this Friday, September 1 at Lit Roastery & Bakeshop at 5:30 p.m. as part of the Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series, presented in conjunction with SouthSide Arts District.
We are already well-underway this week on WLVU. The Quinn Spinn is coming off of a record-breaking Monday night on The Sound of The Underground that featured Stroudsburg rockers, The Crowning. Check out a little live video here.
Now, the beat goes on with our other premier programs. See what’s going on…
This Week on WLVU
The party will continue this Friday night, even after the official Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series festivities end — and we have The Groove Merchants to thank for that.
First and foremost, it’s important to point out how absolutely spectacular the weather was on Sunday. Pleasant temperatures and sunny skies were complemented by a gentle, yet glorious late summer breeze that made being outside the ideal activity for anyone with a pulse.
Add in various forms of Sangria and the folk-punk stylings of Alex Mery & The Townsmen, and you have yourself a perfect Sunday afternoon.
On Sunday, Rocking the Valley held a benefit for the recently-hospitalized Tommy Zito, a locally renowned musician and entertainer. The event became so big that it outgrew the internet radio station’s usual haunt of the Jetport Bar & Lounge.
Fortunately, an adjacent ballroom inside of the connected Days Inn hotel was available, providing the perfect space for a packed house and an inspired evening of local music.
At first glance, this list doesn’t seem too long this week, but when you consider that we have 12 – count ‘em – 12 Can’t-Miss Shows in one for you on Friday, this is actually our longest weekly list ever.
See you out there!
Can’t-Miss Shows of the Week!
On Friday, I went to Levitt Pavilion at SteelStacks with plans of seeing classical hip hop duo Black Violin, who have gained popularity as they periodically visit the Lehigh Valley with a live show that successfully merges just about every genre known to man.
Unfortunately, I would come to find out that the duo re-scheduled for Sunday, September 10. However, the people at SteelStacks still gave us a show.
We’ve been hanging a lot around Bethlehem lately, and we found ourselves ready to branch back out and find adventure on Friday night. Fortunately, there was plenty going on this brisk and refreshing evening, and our travels found us at Bangor’s Broadway Pub.
