Also tonight, the King Street Coffeehouse at 253 Front St., Northumberland, is open. The music starts at 7 p.m., this week featuring the Gypsy Lizards, Doug McMinn and Hannah Bingman and Bruce Barr. All for $7 cover, a real bargain for this much music in one place.

Elsewhere, Pages of Paul, with classy Karen Nogle out front, is at the Scarlet D Tavern on Chestnut Street in Mifflinburg from 8-11 p.m.

Puirseil’s Irish Pub welcomes Lux Bridge from 7-8 p.m., as always playing authentic Irish and Celtic music, and as always, the show is followed by an Irish “session.”

And Kimbo is at McGuigan’s Public House at Third and Market in Sunbury from 6:30-8:30 p.m. 

The Frank Wicher Band is at The Links at Buckhorn, off I-80 at Buckhorn, from 8-11 p.m.
