There’s another jam-packed weekend of live music in store for this weekend in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas. As our readership continues to grow, so does our list of events. So, how do you get your event listed each week ? It’s easy. Let us know by Wednesday where you’re playing or who is appearing at your venue Thursday through Sunday. You can do that through Facebook messenger at https://www.facebook.com/lvvoicesofthevalley/, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the “contact us” form on our website. It costs nothing to promote your shows here. All i ask is that you like/share/follow our Facebook page and help fill our venues with live music fans.
Tonight’s lineup features a few open mic nights where you can come out and show off your skills. At Cave Brewing Company you can enjoy 50% off drinks for all performers starting at 5:30pm. Tonight will be your last chance to catch host Nick Lindsay (The Audio Files) before he takes an extended leave and it’s a great night to check out this relatively new venue. The open mic here happens every month on the 2nd and 4th Thursday and will be hosted by Ralph Pagano while Nick is away. The ShawneeCraft Brewery open mic night starts at 6pm tonight and every Thursday night with host Jeremiah Williams. John Cannavo is your host at the Wooden Match every Thursday night.
