This weekend, Lehigh Valley Underground will be taking a road trip out to Lancaster for the Ninth Annual Launch Music Conference & Festival. Lehigh Valley artists including Alex Mery & The Townsmen, Neil Grover, and Pentley Holmes are all on the bill.

But… that’s out there. What’s going on back here? For one thing, Saturday night is particularly stacked; not just in the Valley, but all over Eastern PA.

Come down the rabbit hole and explore the…

Bonus Interview: Vegafuse at the Gin Mill & Grille

We wrap up our coverage of last week’s monster rock show at the Gin Mill & Grille with this interview from Vegafuse. The band stayed late with us, after the stage was cleared, to chat about a great night of rock.

We also learn a lot about this unique band’s history and their plans for the future, as well as the dangers of power sliding, in this fun chat.

Sunday Thought Series: Something is Happening

I had the opportunity to go out on the scene three nights in a row this week.

On Thursday, I went to The Original Music Series, as I typically do, to see Quadraplay and Aniqatia.

Friday night afforded me my first-ever trip to Northampton’s Gin Mill and Grille for a night of hard rock with KILLCODE, Autoerotica, and Vegafuse.

Then last night, I went back to Phillipsburg’s Warhouse Collective for a night of indie rock from Handheld, VoirVoir and Sing, Bird of Prey.

Through it all – three distinctly different nights of great music, some hard-working, amazing people people and my own opportunity to connect more deeply with our music scene – I have come away with this thought.

Something is happening in the Lehigh Valley, and it’s big.

Those on the Lehigh Valley’s original music scene have waited years and, in some cases, decades for these days to come. These are days where more opportunities continue to arise for artists of any genre in the region. The folks on the scene are realizing that it will take teamwork and commitment to bring all of our efforts to prominence, and it appears that these people have begun to find each other and team up for the greater good.

We’re talented, we’re dedicated, and our voices are getting louder. We’ve made it this far, so let’s keep it up.

PHOTOS: Autoerotica, Vegafuse and KILLCODE Kill It at the Gin Mill & Grille

Last night, we were treated to an absurdly awesome, face-melting night of rock. Local bands Autoerotica and Vegafuse were joined by Long Island hard rockers KILLCODE, rising stars in the hard rock world who find themselves as number one in their genre in New York City on ReverbNation.

Hopefully, these photos do justice to the amazing night we had! Special thanks to all three bands for being super cool to work with, Rich Dushok for hooking us up with interviews (still to come here on LVU), and the good people at the Gin Mill & Grille in Northampton for having a fine rock and roll venue.
