First Friday – New Faces and New Places

It’s June and that means First Friday on the Southside is right around the corner. We have lots of new faces, a couple new venues and some returning favorites. Brinker Lofts will be hosting live music for the first time in June and Revel Social, who joined us in May, is another welcome addition to the First Friday team.

As we continue to grow, we continue to bring new faces to the Southside as well. First Friday first-timers include Bill McConney, Chris Eichlin, Joe Janci, Alyssa Dodge and Eileen O’Brennan. First Friday regular Brian Kibler will be in his usual spot at Molly’s Irish Pub and Service Dog will be making a return appearance to the First Friday scene. Of course, there’s plenty of choices at our regular spots and enough music to keep you going all night long.

At Domaci, who has been with us from the very beginning, there will be an added theme to this months’ First Friday. “Y’all means All” – a celebration of Pride – will take place from 5-9pm. Special guest performer Eileen O’Brennan will be on hand to mingle and interact with guests and entertain you throughout the evening. “Eileen O’Brennan is an Allentown native who started her career 5 years ago. In her small time as a drag entertainer she has obtained the titles of Stonewall Pump Star 2014, Lehigh Valley Queen of Pride 2017, and New Hopes Miss Mardi Gras 2019. You can find Eileen performing in Allentown, New Hope, Harrisburg, Scranton, and anywhere in between. She’s a fun campy 50’s housewife that makes all of her outfits in her home sewing studio.

Your entire First Friday Lineup, presented to you by the Southside Arts District and Voices of the Valley, along with our sponsors Comfort Suites, Lehigh University and Arts Quest is below in order of appearance. Of course, none of this would be possible without the help of the many businesses who participate each month to bring live music to the Southside. Come out and support live music and support our partners and help make each month bigger and better than the last.
