Post contributed by Erika Liodice.

On the first Friday night of every month, the shops, restaurants, and art galleries of South Bethlehem open their doors and welcome passersby to step inside and discover something new. They do this in celebration of First Friday, a community tradition I’ve known about for years but have never managed to attend. So when a friend suggested we check it out, I decided that last Friday would be my first First Friday.

The Avett Brothers return to Bethlehem to close out Musikfest.

It’s not every day that your favorite band hits the road for a tour. And, it’s definitely not every day that they happen to make a stop in the town where you live. But if you’re a fan of the Avett Brothers like I am, you’re lucky enough to have them make an appearance twice within the last two years at Musikfest.

This year, the Avett Brothers returned to close out Musikfest 2016 as part of a tour supporting their new album True Sadness. With support from Langhorne Slim, a native of Langhorne, PA, the night promised to be full of music that would hit every emotion, from tugging at your heart strings to stomping and clapping as you dance in the aisles.

Don Henley brings classic rock to Musikfest.

Bush headlines day 7 of Musikfest.

Electricity! The show that could’ve been.

When a concert review starts with a weather update… well, not good! Inclement weather had been threatening the Musikfest all day long yesterday. This threat was real. However, after warm up band Chevelle took the Sands Steel Stage last night, everyone in attendance felt all would be alright on this night. Chevelle was terrific… and the lightening? Nah… we’re good! The lightening lightshow steadily flashing and creeping in would only enhance the atmosphere.
