And in the words of Marvin Gaye, "What's going on?"

A list of rocking and rolling events in the Lehigh Valley and beyone for the weekend of August 17-August 19, 2012

The weekend is finally upon us and I am glad to see this week has passed painlessly and quickly. It is hard to believe how quickly the summer has gone by and soon the kids will be heading back to school. Is it just me or do the years go by faster and faster the older we get??

I have compiled a list of all the rocking and rolling that will be going on throughout the weekend (August 17-August 19) in the Lehigh Valley and a few places beyond if the road trip mood strikes you. If I missed an event, or band gig, I am sorry and you can add your band's event as a comment below the blog.  This is going to become a weekly staple in my blog because I want everyone to enjoy the talented musicians in the Lehigh Valley like I do. Enjoy and if you make it to one of these gigs, tell the band Tracie sent you!! :-)
