The NyTimes and the Post Gazette review Pittsburgh native August Wilson's "Radio Golf"

I haven't been to a "big" concert in years. It doesn't look like this is the summer that will break the run.

Pittsburgh's Quantum Theatre continues to have the most challenging and experimental choices in the region.

One of my favorite non-local bands, Matt Pond Pa is looking for new members:

We're looking again -- in search of one or two excellent people to join our band. The positions include the bass, keys, and singing. All in one, or all in two. We have to see what works best.
It would be at least a year committment -- starting in July/August. Maybe longer if it works out for all of us. Jobs, relationships and personalities have gotten in way with prior members. We're looking for someone that we can survive in the best and worst situations -- more than survive. Because really, most of this is driving, hanging out in hotels, hanging out in rock clubs. And we don't like to kill time -- we like to have a good time -- all the time. Or at least rock trying.
Please write to me.
