January 4, 2008 – First Night Surprises and failing media

The most pleasant surprise of Oil City’s First Night (aside from discovering the foulest public restroom in Venango County) was Accordance's performance at St Stephen’s Church.  Amazingly complex music on, yup, accordions.  If all you know is polka or gypsy punk, you owe it to yourself to check out Guy Klucevsek’s work.  You can stream some of the music on their MySpace.

 JPG magazine is closing.tomorrow.

I have no idea why this blog is called Venango County.  Any guesses?

Grove City’s Allied News is apparently on its last legs.

VisitPittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Steelers are sponsoring a video contest: Create the best Steelers cheer, to cheer the team during the playoff! (via My Brilliant Mistakes)

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette profiles Grove City native and up an coming operatic bass baritone, Zachary Luchette
