When you hear the sounds of Billy Bauer Band nearby, it’s hard not to stick around a while and enjoy the quartet’s bright brand of acoustic rock. That’s what I did on Thursday night — during a festival with so many stages running at any given time, I dedicated a full set to enjoying this Bethlehem-based band.
Billy Bauer graciously invited Lehigh Valley Underground to make the trip up to Stroudsburg’s Sherman Theater on Friday night to catch his eponymous band’s opening gig in support of Gin Blossoms.
We happily obliged.
After two weeks on the road together, hundreds of miles logged, and countless memories made, Alex Mery & The Townsmen and Zach Russack brought their Southern Exposure Tour home on Sunday.
Our friends at Rocking the Valley hosted an easygoing Sunday evening of folk music Sunday evening at the newly-restored Camel’s Hump Farm, located at 1311 Santee Mill Rd. in Bethlehem.

Allentown will once again hold its Fourth of July Weekend celebration at J. Birney Crum Stadium, and will enlist the help of some of the region’s most popular artists for the festivities.
Historic Bethlehem Museums & Sites (HBMS) invites you to celebrate the creative women of the Lehigh Valley with Songs for Sisters, a one night only, coffeehouse-style concert on Thursday, June 15 from 6-8 p.m. on the second floor of the Single Sisters’ House (50 W. Church St., Bethlehem).
Well, that was fun!
Day 1 of our May-riffic Music Festival rocked well into the night and saw top-notch performances across the board. We want to thank Carter Lansing, Jordyn Kenzie, Chelsea Lyn Meyer, Leah Marie Fuls, Rofo Audio, Summer Scouts, Camo, and Rofo Audio (again) for getting us kicked off! Photos and a recap of the entire festival are coming on Monday.
The Balcony Show, the widely-syndicated internet radio show that will make its WLVU debut on Wednesdays beginning in June, is hosting its first Showcase of the summer at Bangor’s Broadway Pub on Friday, June 30.
If you’re like us, you’re probably suuuuuuuuper excited for this weekend’s May-riffic Music Festival at American Spirits Roadhouse.
Like, so excited that you can hardly contain yourself, and you just want the week to hurry up and end already so you can get to Saturday. You might even sound something like, “I can’t take another minute of this! OH, THE HUMANITY! WHEN WILL THIS WEEK FINALLY END?!”
Sorry, we got a little carried away. Case of the Mondays, perhaps?
After Julia Sommer and Dana Gaynor concluded a rather magical evening at Levitt Pavilion last night, I decided to take a stroll across the street to see who was playing on the ArtsQuest Center’s TD Bank stage.
Little did I know, I would hear a familiar voice.
