Free live music. Free Art. All Weekend.

If you live in Pittsburgh you probably realize that there are two pretty huge events Downtown this weekend. The Three Rivers Arts Fest and PrideFest. On Saturday, in the middle of all this madness, I am hosting a event at the SPACE Gallery on Liberty Ave as part of the Non-Punk Pittsburgh Art Exhibit.

In case you missed it I recorded a podcast highlighting the Non-Punk Pittsburgh exhibit a few weeks ago. You can listen to that here.

Doors open at 6PM and admission is FREE so if you plan on being Downtown this weekend for the Arts Fest or Pride OR WHATEVER be sure to stop by so you can see this great exhibit and watch some awesome live bands that aren’t your typical “Arts Fest” fare. Bring Earplugs. It’s gunna be loud.

You can find more info on the event here.

If you’re in Pittsburgh and have the time, be sure to get out of the house this weekend and enjoy some free art. Or just die you boring fuck.
