LVU Wants to Know: Who’s Your Favorite Live Local Act?

Lehigh Valley Underground has been at this thing for almost a year. In that time, we have met so many talented artists, we’re positive that there will never be a shortage of great music to cover.

That includes the live scene, which, as we’ve found, is active year-round around these parts. While we certainly have plenty of artists that we like to catch whenever possible, we’re not going to give away who our favorites are juuuuuust yet. (Spoilers: Perhaps we will toward the end of the year…)

While we’re not showing our hand until it’s time to review this wild and wonderful year, we got to thinking that you, our loyal readers, probably have plenty of good suggestions for us to check out right now.

Whether you’ve seen them covered on LVU before, or they’re new music to our ears, we want to know: Who are your favorite local acts to see live?

P.S.: When you leave your comment, feel free to share a streaming link!

Touring is by no means an easy pursuit, and one can only imagine the difficulty of traveling from city to city, and then playing to a less-than-receptive crowd.

Performances by Jack Romanov and New York’s Ghost Pressure at The Stoop last weekend not only solidified their following in the Philly music scene, but it also displayed that The Stoop has become a great location for out-of-town bands to gain exposure.

Last Friday I was thoroughly entertained by Flux Capacitor’s concert at Boxcar Brewing Company. Earlier this year Flux Capacitor played Bonnaroo, so going into the concert, my expectations were extremely high. Flux Capacitor delivered. Continue reading Concert Review: Flux Capacitor

PHOTOS: Chris Cummings Trio at The Tap Room (Weyerbacher Brewing Company)

Friday evening was a good one to spend indoors, with the threat of rain looming and the temperatures lower than we’ve become accustomed to in recent months. It was also perfect jazz weather, making Chris Cummings Trio’s performance at Weyerbacher’s Tap Room a timely event.

The music accented a friendly post-work week atmosphere, topped off with good friends and great local beers from one of the region’s top breweries. Some moments are captured below. Enjoy!
