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!
With the May edition of #LVUFirstFriday, we ushered in a new era – the Banko Beverage Co. Beer Garden Era. During the warm weather months, you will now have the chance to come to the South Bethlehem Greenway (Mechanic St. between Webster and Adams) during First Friday, where you can enjoy and appreciate a selection of beers, yard games, and music presented by our friends at Banko, alongside LVU and SouthSide Arts District.
And, in case you’re wondering who you’ll feast your ears upon this summer (and into the fall), we have an answer!
The debut record from Sightline Heights, a new alternative rock project from the Philadelphia area, is set to be released worldwide on June 8th, 2018 through all major online retailers and streaming services. As the solo project of Marc Eimer, a Philadelphia-area native that has long been an advocate for independent artists, the 4-song EP features Eimer on vocals and guitar, with guest appearances from long-time friends Stephen Lorek and Dylan Mulcahy, formerly of XPN-supported band Shark Tape, on bass and drums respectively.
Chelsea Lyn Meyer is back with “Hangover,” a new, swaggering rock and roll tune sure to make listeners call for another round.

Let’s address the elephant in the room: Musikfest begins Friday. Just like last year, you can be sure that Lehigh Valley Underground will have daily previews of the action as the days go by.
Until then, there are plenty of non-‘Fest related activities taking place throughout the area this week, and we’re here to tell you about ‘em!
