1. Pittsburgh is a small town.
2. There are many, many quality people in this small town that work hard to provide things to do in the city in the form of Art, Music / Cultural Events.
When you add 1 + 2 it's inevitable that many of these events end up taking place on the same night ... and being part of this Art and Music scene in this small town and knowing most of these quality people only makes it that much harder to decide what events to attend.
Tomorrow night for example ... I have no idea what I am going to do just yet:
a. The folks at the Shadowlounge are having two seperate shows on the same night; early 90's old school hip hop group Souls of Mischief are playing the early show and the nationally known afro beat band Nomo will be playing after midnight.
b. A friend of mine is curator over at The Pittsburgh Center of the Arts and tomorrow night he is bringing in the free form Jazz performer, Oluyemi Thomas.
c. The folks at 720 Records are hosting another great old school hip hop dance party over at the Brillobox.
d. Sage Francis is performing at Mr. Smalls Theater.
e. and my friend Christiane D is performing at the City Paper's Sound Kitchen event.
dang ... I'm sure I'm probably missing something.
and some people still try to say that there is never anything to do in the 'burgh.
oh .. .and DJ Jazzy Jeff is performing this weekend too!
