…local artistic venue is celebrating its fifth anniversary in January?
The Vintage (326 Spruce St., Scranton) will host a fifth anniversary show on Jan. 17.
The all-ages show, co-produced by The Vintage and Highway 81 Revisited, is being presented as a thank you to the public for five years of support.
Northeastern Pennsylvania bands A Social State, Esta Coda, Young at Heart, and Katie Kelly and the Charming Beards will perform that night. The doors open at 7 p.m. and the music starts at 7:30.
Scranton’s A Social State, founded in 2009, features former members of NEPA bands Livingston and Losing Caufield, both of which were fixtures on the area all-ages scene. The band recently finished recording its debut album.
Esta Coda, also based in Scranton, features Daniel Rosler from area band A Fire With Friends. They are expected to release their debut EP in early 2014.
Young At Heart, founded in 2008 in Scranton, has performed with bands like New Found Glory, Title Fight, and Four Year Strong. They released their debut album in September of 2013.
Katie Kelly and the Charming Beards, based in Wilkes-Barre, was formed by Kelly, a former member of Ashes for Trees. The band was chosen as local music blog Highway 81 Revisited’s first “On the Rise” artist in 2013.

…will you be able to catch the third annual Peach Music Festival this summer?
The dates for the music show, hosted by The Allman Brothers Band, were just announced as Aug. 14 through the 17 at The Pavilion at Montage Mountain and Montage Mountain Waterpark.
ABB will be performing two headlining sets, including a set to close out the festival for the first time ever. This will also be the only chance fans have to see ABB in Pennsylvania and New Jersey this summer.
“We want to keep expanding it and try to make it more diverse and try to attract a bigger audience,” Warren Haynes of The Allman Brothers Band and Gov’t Mule told The Weekender last year.
