In March, City Paper kicked off our new quarterly live-concert series, Sounding Board, with a fun show at Peter's Pub in Oakland. This time the event moved to the South Side, where our host was the Smiling Moose. The three featured artists have been covered in one way or another by CP in the first half of 2012. Attendees paid a $6 cover and the beer special was $1 Iron City's.

THE BANDS

Bluebird Midwest is the solo project of Roger Harvey, who you might know from his band White Wives. White Wives released its debut a little under a year ago on Adeline, the label run by Billie Joe and Adrienne Armstrong. Bluebird Midwest released its first video through CP's music blog, FFW>>, in February.

Triggers were featured in the music section in April, when the band's second record, Forcing a Smile, was officially released.

And rounding out the lineup: Our Music Guide's cover models Tracksploitation, the DJ duo from the future that often dresses in costume. The pair, JCT 45 and Professor ASAP, closed out the night by giving us plenty of reasons to dance.

Three Rivers Arts Festival

June 1-10 2012

Posted By on Thu, Jun 7, 2012 at 10:04 AM

Three Rivers Arts Festival is a 10-day celebration of the arts held annually in Downtown Pittsburgh. The Three Rivers Arts Festival quickly grew from the “little outdoor art show” to what is today the region’s largest multidisciplinary showcase of visual art and performing arts. Despite a rapid growth, the Festival’s mission to connect the community to arts and culture has remained consistent throughout the event’s 50-year history.

City Paper was on site for opening weekend and we had a great time listening to the live bands, viewing all the local art and of course eating the amazing festival food! P.S. try the fried Oreo's! Be sure to stop by our booth this weekend (June 8-10) for fun promotions and give-a-ways!
