Can’t-Miss Shows of the Week
In Easton’s Centre Square, the first Thursday of every month will rock just a little bit harder!
In case there was any doubt left, Saturday night at Rivals Sports Bar & Restaurant proved once again that Easton Rocks.
The stage at Rivals was graced by the presence of Acoustic Kitty Project, fronted by Carter Lansing, and Roi & the Secret People, who are currently competing in a MusicBrackets.com music video contest for a $5,000 cash prize.
Both acts performed brilliantly, with Acoustic Kitty Project setting a country rock tone during their hour-plus set. Roi & the Secret People then followed with another trademark performance that blended sounds from the rock, pop, and progressive spheres.
Hats off to both bands for another enjoyable night of music (and for the stylish hats of each band’s frontman). Enjoy the photos!

Improvisational musicianship always impresses me, whether it is found in jazz or showcased through a number of other genres. On Thursday, The Now brought its one-of-a-kind improvisational act to the stage at Rivals Easton, ensuring an impressive night to remember for all.
The way The Now moved so seamlessly from idea to idea speaks to each member’s individual ability, as well as the cohesion of the band as a unit. The foursome, comprised of Dan DeChellis, John SanFillipo, Shawn Cav, and Carter Lansing, utilized their music to put the arts on full display, inviting interpretive dancers to accompany them. In addition, a video loop played on screens throughout the venue to add a visual component to the performance.
Now, we add our “visual component.” Enjoy our photos from this intriguing night.
