With Monday’s announcement of the Lehigh Valley Underground 2nd Birthday Spectacular at SteelStacks on January 19, we are in a celebratory mood as we prepare for this milestone with our community and some of the finest musicians from this side of the Mississippi.
It’s hard to believe that we’re already just a week and a half away from another enthralling edition of the Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series, presented in conjunction with SouthSide Arts District.
We stand here, in slight disbelief that we’ve already reached the middle of October. 2017 has been quite an eventful year, here at Lehigh Valley Underground and across our community in general. And, while the year is certainly still far from over, it’s not too early to reflect on all we’ve seen and heard.
Another spectacular, brilliant edition of the Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series — presented in conjunction with our fantastic partners, SouthSide Arts District — is in the books. You’ve heard the bands. You’ve seen the photos. Now, we move onward to November.
We have official artwork for the October edition of the Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series. Once that happens, that’s the official signal that it’s getting real out here.
I was catching up with LVU Contributor Lisa Robinson last night during a visit to Hardball Cider in Bethlehem. As you might expect from two people so involved in our local music scene, the conversation included the music that is important to us.
With the live scene coming down from its summertime peak, fall seems like a fine time to release some new material.
Summer isn’t over yet — we still have the epic start to a new era of First Friday in South Bethlehem to kick off Labor Day weekend, after all. However, the temperatures are getting slightly cooler, the days are just a bit shorter, and it’s undeniable: summer is winding down.
This is the first weekend in three weekends that there’s not a festival happening right in our backyard.
Guys, it’s getting real now…
In two weeks, we’ll be smack in the middle of Musikfest.
