- The Lopez "Heart Punch" Album Cover
#Junction was the most fun I’ve had on stage in a minute. Big thanks to @djshoe412 and @aunty_trs for having us as the first guest performers. S/o to @livefromthe7ity Lucas Akira and @JaybeeJackson for representing @DWBRECORDS to the fullest. Love y’all 💜— Dark Horse May 31st (@_jordyofficial) May 13, 2019
Junction is held every second Saturday of the month. The music can include hip hop, house, Jersey club, R&B, and dancehall.
Heart Punch, the highly anticipated album from The Lopez, dropped Saturday with a party at Spirit. With the help of friends and the local music community, Steph Flati was able to master, press, and finish Heart Punch after the unexpected passing of her bandmate and husband, Jesse Flati, last fall.

Sunny with partly cloudy skies, Saturday almost burst with the number of musical events in the 'Burgh. Over 200 local acts performed at the free Millvale Music Festival.

To the fine people of @millvalemusic and everyone who came out; that was a blast. Looking out into the smokey diveness of Happy Day Lounge and seeing friends and new faces mesmerized and enjoying life was ineffably fulfilling. Thanks again for your suppo… https://t.co/vXvaFPTjgx pic.twitter.com/5ngKivFpis— Razz Newtons (@RazzNewtons) May 13, 2019
