The First Friday of the month meant that it was once again time for South Bethlehem to be filled with the sounds of live, local music.
Thursday night presented a unique edition of SteelStacks Open Mic, presented by Billy Bauer. The weekly series served as the platform for the release of singer-songwriter Kara Hartzell’s debut EP, “When I’m Home.”
Earlier this decade, Kill the Broadcast was one of the most successful original bands on our local scene. The band played multiple Musikfests in their first incarnation, and were recognized as the 2012 winners of WZZO’s now-defunct Backyard Bands competition. In addition, the band had notable gigs in Philadelphia, playing venues including The Grape Room and Legendary Dobbs.
The spirit of independent art was in the air at Allentown’s Cedar Beach Park on Saturday afternoon, where long-awaited (by some) brisk fall conditions didn’t stop the crowds from coming out to enjoy Day 2 of Allentown ArtsFest.
Friday night at SouthSide 313 was one marked by stellar musicianship, improvisation, and good vibes.
While the 30th Annual Celtic Classic rolled on into Saturday night, loud rock sounds could be heard and crowds could be seen gathering just off the festival grounds at The Wooden Match. That could only mean one thing…
Another Day Dawns was back for another festival weekend set!
We got a little taste of everything at Day 2 of the 30th Annual Celtic Classic in Historic Downtown Bethlehem.
Friday night, the 30th Annual Celtic Classic kicked off in Historic Downtown Bethlehem. The weekend-long celebration of Celtic, food, apparel, and sport also features live music rooted in the traditions of the culture.
I spent a couple of hours at the festival at Scott and Riverside Parks along the Delaware River, and had the opportunity to enjoy sights and sounds that included live music, unique hairstyles, interesting talents, and a little bit of street art.
After another lovely visit with our pals Roi and the Secret People, it was time to get our show on the road up to Northampton for a night of hard rock and general debauchery.
