As the weekend begins, some disparate notes for you to keep in mind:
-- The experimental art rock outfit Suavity's Mouthpiece -- until recently unknown to me -- announced today its second "Suavity's Showcase" show, co-presented with Drusky Entertainment and a U.K. media outlet called Independent Music News. It's taking place July 11 and features, in addition to Suavity's Mouthpiece: The Feel-Good Revolution, M. Bellaire and Luxe. Tickets go on sale Monday; you can find more about the three-piece, led by the loquacious J. Trafford (and featuring collaborations with many local artists) at their website. I think they have sort of a post-Industrial-music take on Red Krayola going on. Or something like that?
-- Word is that tonight's Donora show at Stage AE -- the Pittsburgh Marathon kickoff party -- has been moved indoors, but is still on. Check it out!
-- Also tonight, at Club Cafe, see Big Snow Big Thaw along with Arlo Aldo, a recent Baltimorean transplant.
-- Also, The Frick announced its summer music series today. In a nutshell: Greg Abate Friday, June 3; Daphne Alderson Friday, July 1; Marley's Ghost Friday, August 5; and St. Petersburg String Quartet Friday, September 2. More info here!
Have a good weekend!
