Pittsburgh shows this week
- The Hi-Frequencies are at the Lava Lounge tonight. Lonely Planet Boy's Big
Good Old Blues Brothers Boy Band brings its added heft to a bill with the
basscentric Lorelei at the Quiet Storm Thursday. The Asylum Street
Spankers play the Quiet Storm on Friday, the same night Jon Langford's
exhibit at Garfield Artworks has its closing reception.
The Spankers are also at the Johnstown Folk Festival with Robbie Fulks and
several other acts over the weekend. That's somewhere in Johnstown (home
to several notorious floods and the real-life setting for the story that
became _Slap Shot_), I'm not quite sure where. First time Robbie's played
here since, when, 2000? He used to come in a couple times a year. Paul
Labrise (of Boxstep) and The Trees are at the Quiet Storm Saturday and then
it gets kinda quiet for the holiday weekend.
