Night Lights Music Festival Brightly Rounds Out the Summer Season by Ryan Smith
Beats Antique

Thursday, Aug. 25

Stunning sonic shapeshifters, Beats Antique.

Jam world royalty, Eric Krasno.

Ever-expanding prog-jam wizards, Aqueous.

“Cave Music” masters, Moon Hooch; synth-washed rocketeers, Jimkata; and new-old-school rockers, The London Souls.

To put it simply, the good people behind the Night Lights Music Festival have damn good taste in music – and they know how to put on a spectacular get-down.

Night Lights has grown over the last six years into a completely unique, not-to-be-missed annual addition to the region’s festival scene.

All those out-of-this-world musicians are just a small bit of the sweet lineup at this year’s Night Lights, which has grown over the last six years into a completely unique, not-to-be-missed annual addition to the region’s already very cool live music festival scene.

Night Lights also calls Sherman, New York’s beautiful Great Blue Heron festival grounds its home, bringing a new (and entirely complementary) vibe into that hallowed space for three days and nights between Thursday, Aug. 25 and Saturday, Aug. 27.

An amazing music- and light-driven, socially conscious, cozy gathering of good, groove-minded people: Where else would any festy fan want to find themselves kissing summer goodbye? – Ryan Smith

Now serving up good vibes on State Street

Fighting for change in our most vulnerable communities.

Running into a blazing building can be ‘terrifying,’ but some choose to do it, anyway. 

Here are three good opportunities to lighten up as the nights grow longer.

Dancing Wheels bring a world premiere to Mercyhurst.

Shapeshift With Me, relative to the band’s spectacular catalog as a whole, is certainly one of their less powerful studio albums.

Grate every road in downtown Erie all at once.

Some ‘multigrain’ bread has a little more protein than you’d like. 

Don’t just dream it. Be it!

If De Palmas trip down memory lane whets your appetite, come back to the museum for one of his most underrated movies a week later.
