This year, LVU is seeing contributions from members of our music community who are out on the scene at Musikfest to catch the action. One of those people, WLVU Station Manager John Paul DeBard, caught up with Philadelphia indie rockers June Divided (who we saw at another festival earlier this year) and shared his thoughts on their set.
Matt Molchany, co-founder of Tape Swap Radio and guitarist/vocalist of Bethlehem indie rock band, VoirVoir, is a long-time resident of Bethelhem. Matt has attended Musikfest for many years as a patron and performer, making him the perfect candidate to take a few minutes to tell us about his journey through the festival over the years.
New York City alt-Americana band Evening Darling has a unique sound that has gained a lot of steam beyond the confines of the Big Apple. Their debut, self-titled album (which you can hear at the bottom of this article) is an exciting blend of influences that range from new wave to the folk and Americana of their previous incarnation, The Hunting Party.
We checked in with the band in advance of its performance this Saturday, August 5 at the Red Stag Pub Liederplatz stage at Musikfest to hear all about what makes them tick, and what we have to look forward to when they come to town this weekend.
Before taking the plunge into full Musikfest mode, we had one final stop on the road to the nation’s largest free outdoor music festival — and that stop took us to American Spirits Roadhouse in Asbury, NJ for a show that was months in the making.
