All Time Low / Dashboard Confessional / Gnash – Musikfest – Bethlehem, PA – 8/11/18

For the first time at Musikfest’s Main Stage on the South Side of Bethlehem, general admission/standing room was allowed and was the right decision for this show. The Summer Ever After Tour featuring All Time Low, Dashboard Confessional, and Gnash would’ve been fine with seating, but for both headliners their shows usually take fans into… Read More All Time Low / Dashboard Confessional / Gnash – Musikfest – Bethlehem, PA – 8/11/18

The Color Fred / Sleep Cycles – Milkboy – Philadelphia, PA – 2/19/22

Opening the show was Familiar Things, but due to arrival, I was only able to catch the last few songs, but being local to the Philadelphia area, I am sure I will see them on another show. Following Familiar Things was the newest band from Philadelphia, Sleep Cycles. Featuring members of Promise of Redemption, An… Read More The Color Fred / Sleep Cycles – Milkboy – Philadelphia, PA – 2/19/22

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy / Lara Hope & The Ark-Tones – Wellmont Theater – Montclair, NJ – 12/16/21

There is one tour that always happens around the holidays and that’s Big Bad Voodoo Daddy’s Wild & Swingin’ Holiday Party. Since the tour didn’t happen last year and with the pandemic sort of easing, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy scaled back on their dates, but at least made a stop at the Wellmont Theater in… Read More Big Bad Voodoo Daddy / Lara Hope & The Ark-Tones – Wellmont Theater – Montclair, NJ – 12/16/21

Closing out the year with a short East Coast run, American Aquarium stopped at the Foundry in Philadelphia and played a hell of a set for a Wednesday night. For this leg of the tour, opening the show was Tommy Prine. If it wasn’t known before his set by the 5th song Tommy introduced himself… Read More American Aquarium / Tommy Prine – The Foundry – Philadelphia, PA – 12/8/21

The Juliana Theory / Mae – Theatre Of Living Arts – Philadelphia, PA – 11/28/21

The beginning of the 2000’s was the best years for me to find music.  My search for new music was reading the liner notes in albums to see what bands were thanked, compilation albums were a huge part in discovering new bands, and then there was just going to shows with no idea how a… Read More The Juliana Theory / Mae – Theatre Of Living Arts – Philadelphia, PA – 11/28/21

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

Gary Clark Jr. / Fiona Silver / Jeremiah Tall – Musikfest – Bethlehem, PA – 8/8/18

On day 6 of Musikfest 2018, rock n roll was alive and well with all credit to Gary Clark Jr. Starting the show off was acoustic folk/blues singer Jeremiah Tall. Being a fairly local musician, Jeremiah also had other dates at Musikfest on side stages, his performance on the main stage garnered attention from the… Read More Gary Clark Jr. / Fiona Silver / Jeremiah Tall – Musikfest – Bethlehem, PA – 8/8/18
