Musikfest 2019: Good to be Home

Since we made this announcement back in November, a lot has happened. We changed our name. We moved to Nashville. And yes, we’ve met tons of incredible creatives of all disciplines in our travels.

Through it all, we’ve never forgotten where we came from. This past weekend, we had a chance to go back.

Throwback: A Five-Point Preview of our Saturday at Musikfest!

For those who may have missed the memo on Facebook… we’re not in Nashville this weekend. In fact, we’re back home, where this all started in Bethlehem, PA.

This is where Musikfest — the nation’s largest free outdoor music festival — is currently taking place. Back in the day — like, a year ago, even — we’d be all over this thing. All day. Every day. For 10 days every August, nobody played harder in the paint than us. Don’t even @ me, bruh. But if you do @ me, do it with style!

Granted, 800+ miles worth of distance has made doing that a little bit harder this year. But, when in Rome, we will do as the Romans used to do. Or, something like that.

That includes mapping out where you need to be today, if you’re in the same vicinity as us and want to hear some brilliant artists for the price of Free.99.

Cat London: Live at City View Sound

Cat London is a New Jersey-based indie artist, backed onstage and in the studio with a dark pop conglomeration that includes Rich Aveo (piano/vocals), Paul O’Keeffe (bass), and Anthony Freda (drums). London’s sound, performance, and songwriting combines Ryan Adams and Damien Rice’s tender portrayal of love and conflict with electrified indie pop tunes, invoking the energy of Lana Del Rey and Lady Gaga. In fact, we might as well add in some Fiona Apple and Jewel, while we’re at it.

PHOTOS: Sad Girl Night at Helping Our Music Evolve

Rule #37 of running an online music publication: always have your camera nearby, in case a concert breaks out.

Or, in this case, in case you’re in your co-working space, plugging away for the upcoming week on the same night that some absolutely stellar female performers are set to take the stage in the room right next to you.
