Four Area Bands to Rock BAPL

Four area bands are set to rock the Bethlehem Area Public Library on June 30.

The event, co-hosted by Bethlehem Record Label Killer Tofu Records, features Lehigh Valley bands Voirvoir, McGarnagle, Chelsea Smarr, and GSGA. Tickets are free, with donations accepted at the door.

“This is the last event we’re having on the library’s first floor in its current incarnation,” said BAPL Executive Director Josh Berk. “We’re turning the old children’s room into a new event space. Construction starts this summer.”

The forthcoming space, to be named for library donor Bob Cohen, will be used to hold concerts, lectures, art exhibitions, and more. “We’re very excited,” said Berk. “And we continue to need to raise funds for the project. It’s really wonderful of these bands to donate their time and talents to help us get over the final fundraising hurdle.”

The bands represent an eclectic mix — Voirvoir is an indie rock band, Chelsea Smarr is a harpist, McGarnagle is an acoustic “anti-folk” band, and GSGA is an ambient electronic and guitar band. It’s sure to be an excellent afternoon of music.

WHAT: Four bands at BAPL (Voirvoir, McGarnagle, Chelsea Smarr, and GSGA)
