It’s not just any weekend in the Lehigh Valley – it’s the first full weekend of September. The means the hottest spot for live music in the Valley is the Southside of Bethlehem. It’s the September edition of the First Friday Concert Series with another great lineup to kick off year three. Check out our article – “First Friday – Music and So Much More” for full details.
Doug Kaetz is the busiest musician in the Valley this weekend, appearing at Pearly Baker’s (Fri – 10:30pm), New Hope Winery (Sat – 2pm), the Mount Airy Lodge (Sat – 8PM) and Mountainview Vineyards (Sun – 2pm). Doug has also been putting out some new music that you can check out on Reverb Nation. Doyle and the Dudes have a few things going on, too. You can catch them at the Funhouse tonight at 10:30pm and at Fossils Last Stand on Saturday at 9. If that’s not enough Doyle for you, swing by the Funhouse Monday at 10pm for their open mic night.
Before you head out to Bethlehem tonight, stop by Pearly Baker’s Ale House and play a few tunes of your own at their monthly open mic night. On Friday, you can take in the sound of First Friday or you can start your night off at the Easton Public Market with Pentley Holmes (6pm). The Bitters will be at Union and Finch at 6:30, Mosey Beat hits the Rock Creek Tavern at 8, Roi & Headeye will make Pippa’s Birthday Bash a night to remember at Colonial Pizza starting at 9, while Chelsea Lyn Meyer rocks the 2nd Street Tavern, also at 9.
Saturday finds Smooth Retsina Glow at Gallows Hill Spirits at 7 and Acoustic Bliss at Colonial Pizza at 8 while the Acoustic Blues Project has a Sunday afternoon (3pm) slot at Bush Stock in Stroudsburg. That’s what he have for you this weekend, highlighted by a jam-packed Friday. Get out and support local live music this weekend and every chance you get.
