THE L.V.A. was dedicated to documenting the forgotten artifacts and undiscovered musical history of the LehighValley PA punk, metal, hardcore and alternative music scenes, in the CDR format! Towards the end of 2005, the LVA retired and now you can just listen to the MP3's! So load them up on your IPOD, your cell phone, your computer or whatever device will play music in the near future and enjoy!
Warning: There may be some offensive songs on here so watch it!
Hint: The live material works best if you download and listen to without the pauses between songs.
