The first Friday of July is right around the corner, which means it’s time for South Bethlehem to be overtaken with local, independent music of many varieties.

Last week, we announced an eclectic and explosive night of rock that we’ll be putting on at The Gallery at Color Me Mine (25 E. Third St.) on Saturday, August 25.
As you might expect, that’s not all we collectively have in store for this summer.
In our history, we have had the good fortune of a great number of incredible community partners to help us produce and promote events. These partners include the obvious – SouthSide Arts District and ArtsQuest among them. However, there are unsung heroes that, depending on their level of involvement in community programs like #LVUFirstFriday and SouthSide Arts and Music Festival, can very well make or break the success of a program.
This week, welcome the official start of summer and enjoy the long days with even longer nights. Three of our picks for the week start at 9 p.m. or later, sure to keep you partying into the wee hours.
And, of course, Friday is going to be beautiful for Out to Lunch on the South Bethlehem Greenway… but you already knew that.
Can’t-Miss Shows of the Week!
We’ve had good luck with the weather so far in June. Not only did the threat of rain disappear on June 1 for both Out to Lunch and First Friday, but the weather for the past two weeks have been particularly spectacular when the weekend has rolled around!
We’ve teamed up with South Bethlehem’s Color Me Mine Lehigh Valley on quite a few music events over the past year. Some have, of course, been a part of our First Friday Concert Series, while we’ve also worked together to host performances during SouthSide Arts & Music Festival and other independent ventures.
On Saturday, August 25, we’ll be back at it again!
