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.
Its mission? Get one step closer toward eliminating domestic abuse through music and poetry.
We have a summer’s worth of jamming on the South Bethlehem Greenway ready for you, beginning on Friday, May 4!
