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.
The Philly garage rockers stopped by Shards while on tour with Cerulean Blue in August 2017. Singer and guitarist Sean “Spyder” Clark began the band as a solo project and has grown it into a five-piece fully muscled machine. Line Leader’s music hits hard and delivers a punk-inspired punch, all while keeping one foot firmly planted in the world of their songwriting inspirations from 1970s like T. Rex and George Harrison.
