Spread across Northeast PA and the Lehigh Valley are the four members of Under the Clothesline, a sleazy garage psych band who have begun to make an impression on the Valley’s music fans in the last couple of years. Under the Clothesline wear their music’s grime on their sleeves, sounding dirty and dingy with a disarmingly relaxed vocal style that seems to hint at something sinister lurking just beneath the surface. The band has previously performed at one of Tape Swap’s shows at the Ice House in Bethlehem and our stage at Allentown ArtsFest. The band joined us on top of the Cigar Factory for a Rooftop Session on a cold, windy day in April 2018.
