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!
