It’s another busy weekend for live music in the Lehigh Valley. The weather doesn’t look great for the outdoor shows tonight so, check ahead before you venture out. The rest of the weekend just looks hot. I want to take a minute to thank everyone who helps contribute content here and those who read and share the post every week. If you want to get in on the “HOT SPOTS”, let me know your schedule by Wednesday evening and I will be sure to promote it here. You can use the “contact us” form on the website, Facebook messenger or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I also want to give a shout out to Jaycie Cuprill and Rising Tide Music for all the work promoting live music as well. While I provide information on shows that take place mainly in the Lehigh Valley, he shares what is going on closer to the Poconos and he does it every day. Between the two, you get plenty of live music updates. Here’s what I have for you.
