Formerly a DIY venue in Bethlehem, Shards lives on as a recording studio, occasional practice space, and home to Tape Swap Radio's Shards Sessions. Each session features a four-song performance and interview. To capture the energy and feel of a live show, sessions are recorded live in front of a small studio audience. These sessions are then aired on our syndicated radio program. Our goal with each Shards Session is to provide a unique live snapshot of bands that call the Lehigh Valley home as well as the bands passing through on tours. The audio and video of our sessions are archived here on this page, so dig in and explore the Lehigh Valley's DIY music scene.
Poor Luther's Bones has existed on the outskirts of the Lehigh Valley music scene for over 25 years, bother in their rural hometown of Oley, PA and in their sound which blends garage rock, blues, and psychedelic rock. Coming from the unique mind of Garth Forsyth, Poor Luther's Bones have been incredibly busy this past year, performing live and releasing three studio albums (along with a solo album from Garth). We recorded the band in May 2017.
