It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Pittsburgh Year again, and a couple of local bands -- one quite seasoned, the other more of an up-and-comer in the game -- have brought out Steelers fight songs to get you stoked for Saturday's game against Those Damn Ravens.
KardaZ -- about whom I wrote a couple years ago, when the Penguins were headed for a Cup win -- is back with another Steelers fight song, based on the Ghostbusters theme, called "Go Steelers." I mean, yes, it's basically just a list of the names of the people on the team -- and poor Matt Spaeth barely makes the fadeout -- but COME ON, it's a Steelers song. Download it here.
The second entry is from Gene the Werewolf, the local Punchline-etc.-related outfit that Aaron wrote about last spring. It's ... well, it's an update of the Steelers Polka! It doesn't really sound like Gene the Werewolf. Except it is! Here: Download it!
Enjoy the game, and maybe check out one of these local shows that come recommended:
Friday, January 14
Horse or Cycle, Nik & the Central Plains, Susan Sarandon, Ash Dinosaur at Howlers.
Toxic Holocaust, Gomorrahizer, Oh Shit They're Going to Kill Us, Wrathcobra at Kopec's.
Saturday, January 15
Ursa Major, Arlo & the Otter, Horse or Cycle (again!) at Brillobox.
Ben Valasek, Chuck Beatty, Stanley J at Club Cafe.
The Silver Thread and The Ceiling Stares at Gooski's.
The one-year anniversary of Projekt 50/50, in which 50 artists decorate one skateboard deck each. It's not a concert, but there IS a DJ, and it's cool. It's at Firehouse Lounge.
If you're a fan of NO KNIFE and/or The Life and Times/SHINER then I highly…
at least you weren't one of many fans who bought tickets from stub hub only…
Great piece, talented writer!
