First Friday August – An Evening of Music
August 6 @ 5:30 pm - 11:30 pm
Pump up the volume. This August First Friday is an evening of music in South Bethlehem. Kick off your weekend and the start of Musikfest with Touchstone Theatre, Godfrey Daniels and the SouthSide Arts District as they present, “HEADEYE AND FRIENDS” featuring The Big Easy Easton Brass Band, Acoustic Kitty Project, ROI and the Secret People, and Jason Hedrington – also known as Headeye – and his new psychedelic album.
The night begins at 6pm at Touchstone Theatre’s outdoor venue, the Barrio Stage – located behind the theatre at 321 E. 4th Street with Carter Lansing of Acoustic Kitty Project. Known for his classic, country rock rhythms, Lansing will wow the crowd, while The Big Easy Easton Brass Band will take to the streets to parade and celebrate the evening.
Then at 7pm, prepare for an intergalactic adventure with funk jam band Headeye. Performing tracks from his new album, Headeye will take the crowd on an interstellar odyssey of wild lighting, electric beats and ferocious sound. But don’t leave Earth just yet! The last act of the evening, ROI and the Secret People, will rocket you right back to our galaxy.
Lead by Mike Roi, ROI and the Secret People are self-described as “One-part Elvis Costello, one-part Tom Petty, one-part Nick Lowe – poured in highball glass over ice, and garnish. Shaken not stirred”. The perfect combination of classic rock, with hints of alternative, to close out the evening’s acts.
Admission is free of charge. Food and drink will be available for purchase. Doors open at 5:30pm.
