Trouble City All-Stars performing at Volksplatz at 5pm
Local reggae done right.  These guys play around the Lehigh Valley all the time, but there’s no one else that jumped out to us at this timeslot so might as well fill it with a tried and true set from these LV staples.

This Bethlehem-based psych rock group has killed it every time we’ve seen them, including their set opening for The Flaming Lips at Musikfest last year.

MarchFourth Marching Bandperforming at Volksplatz at 9pm
A favorite of ours, these guys wowed us with their first performance at Musikfest back in 2011 and we’re glad to see them continuously booked.  The last performance we caught by them seemed a little lacking in the theatrics we came to expect from them, but based on videos we’ve seen of last night’s performance, it looks like they’re back to their old (and impressive) tricks again.  Like a marching band and Burning Man had a baby, these guys are an act you don’t want to miss.

St. Lenoxperforming at Lyrikplatz in the Frank Banko Alehouse Cinemas at 9pm
Backed by synth and drum machines, Andy Choi’s soulful electronica has a really interesting sound that we’re interested to see translated to a live performance.
