Dark clouds were again looming over Bethlehem when I got back into town from visiting my brand new niece and going to my friend’s engagement party. It was around 5 p.m., and I wanted to make sure I got to Musikfest before the rains inevitably hit.
Lo and behold, Mother Nature gave us a reprieve this time.
Torrential rain shut down the outdoor portion of the 10-day Musikfest party a little early last night. Today, however, is a new day. Although forecasts suggest that we should keep an eye on the sky, we’re still planning on having ourselves a time on the festival’s final Saturday.
Musikfest Five Point Preview: Saturday, August 12
Song: Cruel Intentions
Released: Jan. 18, 2017
Genre: Indie pop
MAYVE, a rising synth pop quintet, drove all the way from East Islip, Long Island to take part in the WSCI Radio Summer Concert Series at South Bethlehem’s Tally Ho Tavern.
For certain, we hope that they’ll join us again.
The young, energetic five-piece presented super-tight tunes that marry 80s New Wave and modern alternative rock, gaining themselves new fans and making a statement in the Lehigh Valley.
If you missed it, replays of the show will air on WSCI Radio. You can also enjoy our view from behind the lens below.
It’s been a very active couple of weeks here at Lehigh Valley Underground. In the past nine days, we’ve covered four shows, a private recording party, and an ENTIRE FESTIVAL.
No reason to stop now, is there? Especially when you consider these…
