The Slackers – Levitt Pavilion Steel Stacks – Bethlehem, PA – 6/5/21

With concerts back one of the great parts of the Steel Stacks in Bethlehem, PA is the huge assortments of free concerts they put on each summer. As luck had it, the first show back at Steel Stacks without the “pods” and limited capacity was The Slackers. This was a good thing because for a band like The Slackers, it would be difficult to stay in a solitary space and not be able to move around and dance. It didn’t take the whole first song of “Keep Him Away” that people were up to the stage grooving to their rock steady beat. The other good thing about these shows is that the bands play for what seems like hours and The Slackers took full advantage playing over 20 songs. Their setlist included songs from all across their discography with a few covers thrown in the mix. However, the highlight of the show was when Vic and Dave played as a duo for a song. Vic solo is always great to see and hear and adding in Dave’s sax makes for a great combination in a live setting. After the duo performance The Slackers went back to a full band to finish out their set and ended the night with one of Dave’s original pieces “The Fool”. Besides their secret shows before this date, this was the start of not only going back to normalcy, but the celebration of 30 years of The Slackers. Make sure to check out their upcoming tour dates and catch a show because it is one celebration you don’t want to miss.
