The Millworks debuts live music with The Lighthouse and the Whaler

To simply call Midtown Harrisburg’s newest resident business “multifaceted” would be a gross understatement. With its farm-to-table food offerings, craft brews (complete with an open-air biergarten), artist studios and art gallery, The Millworks truly is a one-stop-shop for dining and entertainment.

Tonight marks the debut of The Millworks’ live music component, as Cleveland-based band The Lighthouse and the Whaler brings its brand of indie melodic rock to town. Though the band started off as a folk-leaning trio, it has since evolved to encompass a more pop-driven, danceable sound. Tracks like “Pioneers” (watch below) – off the band’s 2012-released full-length, This is an Adventure, fall somewhere between the jangly pop of Walk the Moon and well-manicured folk of The Lumineers.

The show kicks off at 10pm, offering plenty of time to grab dinner, relax with an after-dinner brew or two and then dance a little bit to help get that digestive tract in gear. Make sure you mark your calendars for other upcoming shows at The Millworks like San Diego’s Album Leaf on April 17, Harrisburg bluegrass outfit Colebrook Road on April 24, and Philly/Brooklyn dream pop band Vacationer on May 1.
