Lisa’s Lens: The Dull Blue Lights Shine

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.

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.

Lisa’s Lens: Scott Marshall & Marshall’s Highway at Musikfest

A rainy Monday was no match for the mighty Scott Marshall & Marshall’s Highway, who kicked off the Americaplatz stage on Day 4 of Musikfest.

The local country rockstar and his band of brothers brought a soulful, spirited performance to Musikfest rooted in the band’s four tenets: faith, hope, music, and love. Ever the storyteller, Marshall shared the tales behind the tunes, drawing in and engaging the audience through popular originals like “‘Shine” and “Hope on the Cross.”

It was my pleasure to spend the evening on rain-soaked ground with the other people who braved the elements and capture the moments. Hope you enjoy!

On the Road with Alex Mery & The Townsmen: Day #12 – Ah, The City (Philadelphia)

 

Distressed chalk work? Nah. This sign is a result of torrential downpours and a thunderstorm that hit Philly tonight right as I was parking our truck/trailer a mile away from the venue for our evening performance. This is all probably a result of my aforementioned “decent weather” from my accounts of Day #11.  Now, let’s rewind…
