As you can see, there is no shortage of live, local music in the Valley. All that’s left for you to do is pick a spot or two and get out and support live music this weekend. I’m sure there is more out there and many places will be hosting live music throughout Lehigh Valley Beer Week. If you don’t see your favorite band or your favorite brew pub listed, check with them to see what they have going on. Also, let them know about the “Weekly HOT SPOTS” so I can help them get the word out. To be included each week, simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or through Facebook messenger. Speaking of “favorite” brew pubs, the highly anticipated opening of Seven Sirens Brewing Company is just around the corner. Check their Facebook page often as they are very good about posting updates and I know many of you are looking forward to filling those mugs !
