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.

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. Also, because it’s good to be back, we’re going to focus this solely on artists from the region we call home, to give you just a taste of the Keystone State’s best.

There is a lot happening in the Lehigh Valley music scene over the course of the next two weeks. With the amazing lineup for LVU’s First Friday Concert Series and the start of Musikfest only a day away, there will be plenty to see, hear and talk about in the days ahead.
In addition to hosting Julie Williams during the August 2018 edition of #LVUFirstFriday, our friends and collaborators at Domaci will keep the party going on weekends, for as long as Musikfest is in town.
From live demonstrations of hot glass blowing to the shady comfort of kids crafts at the Crayola Creativity Tent, this year’s Musikfest has something for art lovers of all ages.
It’s hard to believe we’re already halfway through 2018. But, as of today, we are.
In case you missed the memo, it’s summer. In fact, we’re calling it now that it’s going to be a Magic Summer for Lehigh Valley Underground and our music community as a whole.
We plan to have ourselves a time, and we want you to be a part of it.

Recently, acoustic pop duo January Noon revealed that they will be performing at Musikfest on Wednesday, August 8 at 8 p.m. on the Lyrikplatz stage, inside of the Frank Banko Alehouse Cinemas.
The guys were so excited that they decided to treat their fans to a new video!
It’s hard to believe that we’re already a quarter of the way through 2018.
