The one-year anniversary of #LVUFirstFriday was wild — and wildly successful.

Just a few short hours before the One-Year Anniversary Edition of the Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series roared through South Bethlehem, two of its performers gave a harmonious preview of the night ahead.
Due to the volatile nature of tonight’s weather forecast, we’re getting out in front of things and moving tonight’s First Friday activities at the Banko Beverage Co. Beer Garden indoors.
As the finale to the #LVUMagicSummer of 2018, we have plenty of Can’t-Miss Shows of our own this week!
On September 7, we will commemorate one year of bringing First Friday back to South Bethlehem!
Bethlehem-based rock band The Beautiful Distortion is one of 60 acts that received a call-back to audition for the “Music Under New York” (MTA MUSIC) program in May. MTA MUSIC provides more than 7,500 performances each year at approximately 30 locations throughout the New York City subway system. Every spring, MTA MUSIC presents a day of invite-only auditions in Manhattan to review and add new performers to their official roster.
The advantage to a week-long forecast of rain? We knew well ahead of time that we’d be moving this week’s installment of Out to Lunch indoors.
Even with what many expect to be a rainy week, a sure sign of summer is on the way this weekend: the beginning of the Levitt Pavilion SteelStacks season!
The 52 free shows on the Levitt stage begin Friday and Saturday night with Lehigh Valley Music Awards Winners Preview Weekend, featuring four local acts who found themselves recognized at the LVMAs back in March.
Also, a note: keep an eye on the weather (and LVU’s Facebook page) for updates as to the location of Out to Lunch this week. In case of inclement weather, the plan will be to move indoors to a location to be determined.
Can’t-Miss Shows of the Week!
With the May edition of #LVUFirstFriday, we ushered in a new era – the Banko Beverage Co. Beer Garden Era. During the warm weather months, you will now have the chance to come to the South Bethlehem Greenway (Mechanic St. between Webster and Adams) during First Friday, where you can enjoy and appreciate a selection of beers, yard games, and music presented by our friends at Banko, alongside LVU and SouthSide Arts District.
And, in case you’re wondering who you’ll feast your ears upon this summer (and into the fall), we have an answer!
A busy weekend in Bethlehem concluded with a multi-faceted evening of entertainment at the Charles A. Brown Ice House.
