PHOTOS: Billy Bauer Duo at Lost Tavern Brewing

Even now, in our third year, there are venues that I have still yet to visit for one reason or another. Friday night marked my first time at Lost Tavern Brewing in Hellertown, where Billy Bauer and Chris Lorenzetti were doing their acoustic-electric duo thing all night long.

I’ll definitely be going back.

Go ‘Out to Lunch’ This Spring with LVU and SouthSide Arts District

While you wait patiently for news on the March edition of the Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series – it’s coming soon, we promise! – we’re excited to announce another fun performance opportunity we’re offering alongside our community partners at SouthSide Arts District starting in May.

We are proud to co-present the new Out to Lunch series. Starting Friday, May 4 on the South Bethlehem Greenway (between New & Adams Streets), attendees can enjoy the beautiful weather, catch a free concert, and rock their lunches from 12-2 p.m. Partake in discounted take-out lunch specials, live music, and pop-up vendors. Every week will showcase a different sound and style. Picnic tables and blankets will be provided, but seating is limited.

Now, for the “live music” part of this equation: we are looking for artists to perform as a part of Out to Lunch this spring and summer! The only requirements are as follows:

  • You must be available from 12-2 p.m. on the Friday of your performance.
  • Due to the laid-back nature of the series, solo/acoustic performers are preferred.
  • You need to tell us more about yourself using the form below!

We will be accepting performers on a rolling basis. Please feel free to reach out to us at lehighvalleyunderground@gmail.com with any questions!
