Picks of the Platzes: Let’s Close it Out!
We hope you’ve enjoyed our Musikfest Picks of the Platzes, in conjunction with Your Next Favorite Band. Phillip and I have had a great time sharing our picks and making our way throughout the festival.
This is it: our final picks for 2023. See you out there one more time, Bethlehem!
Gerard’s Pick (The Sheriff’s Selection): Stephen Babcock
Highmark Community Blue Shield Stage (South Side), 4 p.m.
I’ve had two opportunities to enjoy Stephen Babcock’s relatable folk-pop stylings, and both of those opportunities came in Nashville. From those experiences, I can tell you that watching him perform is an opportunity not to be missed.
Phillip’s Pick: Jon Worthy & the Bends
Plaza Tropical (North Side), 5:30 p.m.
A true “rockstar” from Nashville, TN, Jon Worthy puts on a spectacle of a show, and his indie-pop music is incredibly fun to listen to. He’s also the literal “poster child” for Your Next Favorite Band, as his silhouette has become our brand image for the show.
