Great list as always 🙂 After receiving Laini’s kind permission I’d like to inform everyone of two more events to END your weekend with. On Sunday night (jazz/electric night) at The Funhouse I’ll be debuting a brand new band, VELVET MOUSTACHE. It’s an experimental THREE KEYBOARD lineup (Jason Hedrington of Wandering Root and Insidious Rays; Brad Murray of Start Making Sense and Stereo Agency; Nick Levinos of Sleepy Dickens, Ooftah Boys and solo fame). 6 keyboards total, one drummer, ALL IMPROV.

Monday at Midnight is also the DEBUT of a new call-in talk show on WLVR (91.3), SAORSA RADIO, dealing with local issues and beyond. First episode will deal–among other things–with parking issues in the Valley, especially the BPA.

Thanks for the forum, Laini!


Sounds great, Jason! You are always welcome to post events here. It is open to everyone. Post away! The call-in talk show on LVR sounds awesome. Maybe I can take a little name so I can stay up late. Will it be taped?


For anyone who doesn’t know about the List of 9 SmartSite, just text “LLPG” to 55678 and save the site to your phone’s homescreen. Then you can access the list of 9 anytime, from any place. Pretty cool!

what a shame we missed making your list– here’s a very cool event happening this Sunday- David Godlis at the Allentown Art Museum– check it out-


Love Laini’s Lists!

CHERYL WHEELER is playing tonight at Listen Live Music, and local songstress DINA HALL opens! 8pm, at the Macungie Institute, 510 E. Main St., Macungie. Doors open at 7:30 – tickets are only $20. Easy free lot and street parking. Get there early – this may sell out!

Thanks Laini for the plug! Hope to see everyone there next month!


Sorry to hear you think it’s boring, Butch. What kind of events do you think would make it less boring? I’m always open to ideas. Thanks for your comment.
