The rain in Friday’s forecast held off, extending the streak of great music and wonderful times on the South Bethlehem Greenway for our Out to Lunch Concert Series.
With Mo7s hard at work on Album #3, you had to know you’d be hearing samples of what the rock and roll couple has been working on over the past few months.
After unveiling a fresh new sound on the funky, upbeat single, “Move,” Mo7s has gone a more tender, romantic route with follow-up, “You’re My Everything.”
Johnny Cash is rightly credited with being the father of outlaw country music. This is not the country music of today, the one that has been taken over by the Carrie Underwoods and the other improbably telegenic performers that populate and dominate the genre.

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!

Artist: Andrew Huston
Album: Going Away
Released: August 4, 2017
Genre: Alt Country
“Going Away” is a “no-nonsense”, alt-country EP that warrants your time. Andrew Huston’s songwriting is purposefully ambiguous, but easily relatable. The Philadelphia-based artist’s inspiration from Wilco’s “A.M.”, can be felt on “Isn’t It Interesting”. This song displays Andrew’s unique talent of crafting upbeat melodies about negative experiences. Instead of wallowing in despair, Huston forms those memories into catchy sing-alongs that will improve the mood of any bar. Read more
