(Bethlehem, PA)– Tape Swap Radio has announced that Weakened Friends, the Portland, Maine-based indie rock band signed to Don Giovanni Records, will headline the next show in their concert series taking place on Thursday, January, 24, 2019 at The Ice House in Bethlehem.

Weakened Friends have been busy recently, recording the song “Hate Mail” with J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. fame in 2017. Their latest single, “Blue Again,” premiered via NPR last August with their new full-length album, Common Blah, being released in October. The last time the band came to the Lehigh Valley was for Tape Swap Radio’s first-ever concert at The Ice House in 2015.

Also performing at the show will be Asbury Park, NJ indie rock band Well Wisher as well as up-and-coming Lehigh Valley shoegaze/post-hardcore band Bloodmoon.

Proceeds from the show will support The Center for Animal Health and Welfare, a private non-profit, no-kill shelter in Easton. Tickets are on-sale now at tapeswapradio.com. Tickets are $10 or $8 with a student ID the night of the show. The show is all ages and doors open at 7:30 PM. Free parking is available at The Ice House.

Tape Swap Radio’s accompanying concert series has been bringing live shows to the Lehigh Valley for the past three years.
