Dark clouds were moving into Bethlehem around the time that I was able to get ready to head down for the second Friday of Musikfest. My original plan was to walk straight down to the Red Stag Pub Liederplatz stage to catch the end of Dina Hall’s set, and work the North Side before heading over to The Ice House for Night 1 of the Lehigh Valley with Love Comedyplatz at 8:45.
Then, as I walked out the door, the skies opened up, thwarting my plans to walk down, camera in tow.
There’s something special about a weekend at Musikfest. Indeed, such a phenomenon only takes place twice a year, and creates quite a buzz of summertime love and happiness for all who encounter it.
After this weekend, you’ll have to wait 51 weeks to experience it again. So, there’s no time like the present – let’s not miss out on a good time!
Musikfest Five Point Preview: Friday, August 11
Artist: The Howling Tongues
Release: Vivian (Single)
Release date: Mar. 8, 2016
Genre: Rock & Roll
When The Howling Tongues’ new single, “Vivian,” hits music streaming and download services on March 8, listeners can expect anthemic, infectious blues-infused rock to triumph through their speakers.
The Atlanta-based quintet is fronted by lead vocalist Davey Rockett, whose powerful, distinctive voice and wide vocal range drives the bus on “Vivian.” Rockett combines with bandmates Nick Magliochetti (Guitar), Tylor James (Drums), Brandon Witcher (Bass) and Thomas Wainwright (Keys) to sound as tight as ever on this groovy, 3-minute track about the shady antics of a witchy woman.
Keep tabs on The Howling Tongues as they prepare to release “Vivian” and more at the band’s official website.
