Now under the Underground Music Collective banner, the Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series continues in December with a mix of new faces and familiar First Friday veterans.
We’ve had a wild ride together so far, haven’t we?
As previously announced, we have plans in place to move our base operations to Nashville this winter. This has prompted questions about the future of our events – namely, the Lehigh Valley Underground First Friday Concert Series, which takes place in South Bethlehem every month in conjunction with SouthSide Arts District.
Since January 2016, Lehigh Valley Underground has featured some of the best and brightest independent musicians, in our region and others. We have welcomed and reviewed submissions of all genres, covered hundreds of performances, and have built a stronger community around the art being created every day, in our own backyard.
As we continue forward, we are inspired to take what we’ve done in eastern Pennsylvania and use it as fuel to think bigger. We envision a platform that connects independent musicians with their peers in other markets, as well as with the larger music industry and its vast educational resources. This, we believe, will take everyone’s game to the next level. However, we realize that we must walk the same walk and do that ourselves.
Today, we announce the next phase of our evolution: We are now the Underground Music Collective (UMC).

A beautiful fall evening helped keep the streets packed all night long in South Bethlehem, as we welcomed a fresh batch of artists to SouthSide Arts District for the latest installment of #LVUFirstFriday.
Musicians need places to play. So, it’s only fitting that, on an #LVUFirstFriday, our Shout ‘Em Out series continues with the establishments that open their doors to live entertainment.
