LVU Wants to Know: How Do You Support Your Music Scene?

It’s been a while since we’ve posed a question in this series, and the time just feels right to get to know our readership a bit better.

As we’ve surely noted several times before, it takes a scene to build a scene. Fortunately for us, the music community in our region is a vibrant entity made up of folks from many varied walks of life. These are people who share their talents in a number of ways and for the betterment of our arts community.

There stands an excellent chance that, if you’re reading this and follow LVU, you are one of those people. First, thank you for supporting music in the Lehigh Valley. We always need more of that around here.

Secondly, we want to know who you are, whether you are a musician, blogger, radio host, promoter, fan, or help our scene grow in any combination of ways.

So, tell us: What do you do to support your local music scene here in eastern Pennsylvania, western New Jersey, and beyond? Let us know in the comments!


  • Pogo City Productions, has a weekly podcast where we play music and interview Punk artist we are always playing local music as well as more popular underground bands. PoGo City also puts on show in Bethlehem PA and hopefully a few other places soon. We also have a compilation in the works that will consist of 10 band 5 of which coming from the Leigh Valley.

  • I grew up in the Leigh Valley, and being a part of the local punk music scene was always something that was, and still is very important to me. Music is an important bridge between the individual and their community because it has the ability to draw the individual out on a deeper relational level. I’m in a band called Doctor Ransom, and I’ve had some great opportunities to sit and connect with new people. Social media has connected us in ways that were unimaginable 15 years ago, but it has also provided too many opportunities for isolative behavior. For me, going to, and playing shows is one way to be more intentional and relational with my community on a face to face level.

  • As a fan instead of a musician, I go to shows that seem like something I’d be interested in. If I like the music or the band’s personality, I buy their CD if they have one 🙂 It’s not much support, but without the fans, it would be a dress rehersal
