I was at the show, and aside from having my eardrums blown, it was an awesome time... My fiance and I have been fans since we saw the spree on Conan O'Brien 4 or 5 years ago, and the music just keeps getting better. Not to mention that the band members are really cool, down-to-earth kind of people... I'd love to see them back in town on their next tour.
Come on out to this show, folks. All the bands are top notch. The Dirty Faces are simply the rockin'est, most wildly unpredictable band in the city and Flaming Fire is sure to be a spectacle to behold.
Amoeba Knievel plans to give them a run for their money, though. It may be our last show in a long, long time. Possibly ever. We're gonna go out on top.
So come on out to see us!
i used to be a live drummer for these guys, great live show-check them out if you get a chance!
Can you guys include links to the websites of the artists you feature? It would be great to check out their music.
Carnegie Library of Homestead, located in Munhall, PA, is much more than a library. The facility contains a newly renovated fitness center, gymnasium, and a swimming pool. In addition, there is a beautiful 1,022 seat music hall, that when built in 1897, was acoustically perfect. Queens will be our 5th show since August, with many more to come.

Maybe we should go back to the drawing board for this story. It doesn't seem quite finished. Remember, information is good. To start: The headline's a little misleading. Why is the library mentioned last? Why are Josh Homme and crew playing in a library? Who set up the show? What other venues/promoters jockeyed for rights? Why did QOTSA end up choosing a library? Was the decision purely monetary, or were other factors involved? Who can talk about it? How about an interview with someone in the band? Someone affiliated with the band? Someone at the library? A fan? In what part of the library are they performing? What kinds of challenges will the venue present? What other weird locations have QOTSA played (other than Rancho De La Luna for The Desert Sessions, which is alluded to but not explained)? Since Era Vulgaris was released in June, why is it necessary to review it now, along with a dismissive, lamely pun-filled (do we really want to use heavy mettle?) synopsis of QOTSA's career?
Give it some thought. Try again next week.
Way to go Chad! Can't wait to get the new CD!
While that's cool that MSI thinks so much of Pittsburgh(and I definitely like me some MSI), we have declines in other scenes. As far as some "underground" stuff goes, KMK/Tech Nine had a joint tour that hit Cleveland, but not Pittsburgh, citing no venues "big enough" to support the bill, as I've heard through the grapevine. And this past ICP tour skipped Pittsburgh, even after promising to come by this time around. I can see other acts like Potluck, Marz, Zug Izland, Mushroomhead, and others that should be a shoe in for the fans in this area, for whom there is a certain following, getting countless shows in Cleveland and Columbus, but not Pittsburgh. Some thing's wrong here. Whether its the clubs or the bookers, something's not working...
>> "We're presenting this stuff in an aggressive manner to regular people as something they should know about and be interested in, rather than something that's socially exclusive or necessarily going to be unpopular." <<
a great way of thinking
The Pittsburgh music scene has not gone gray! The band Mindless self indulgence has decided to play their DVD release show at Mr. Smalls Theater! Millvale Pennsylvania is one of the few cities across America that MSI has decided to play a club tour in (let alone the city they picked to celebrate the release of their DVD). Because of this, i have come to the conclusion that no, the Pittsburgh music scene has not gone gray!
Flash Darlings were amazing at both of these shows. If you havent had the opportunity to see these guys yet, definitely dont miss out. They play with an intensity difficult to find these days - and their recording loses none of that.
props to Patti Smith for not allowing age to determine if she's gonna create or not and believing her best work is yet to come. how truly sad for those who believe otherwise & have fallen prey to America's spoon-fed fallacies about growing older.
Great Rush review! I didn't see any Geedy Lee look alikes, thankfully, but I just caught the band in Portland on Saturday and posted a review on my Blog at http://isorski.blogspot.com/. Enjoy!
Oh my Mightly Lord in Heaven! I saw this guy play in the early 90's and he sucked royally then, I can't believe that he is still around and hasn't given up yet! Doesn't the world already know that there is already a Weird Al?? Do we really need another one?? My opinion would be NO! This guy needs to keep his day job!! Don't waste your money on his album or on his show!!
Could definitely be the next PGH artist to get signed! Awesome band.
Having known Spike since highschool in many differnt venues as DJ and Co-worker, I found out too late of his passing. I can only say how very much he influenced myself and my friends over the years as we too flocked to his appearances.
I was overwelhmed by my own emotions over his loss and can't quite put in to words why it hit me so hard. Perhaps the fact that he represented times in my life that were splashed with his colorful rendition of the time period in music.
I hope that somewhere out there his collections live on and that he continues to bring what I felt to more and more lives.
Here's to you Spike, thinking of you.
For those interested, he's ABZ's recent promo mix...
did I say flemming? I meant Snyder, oops!
I am gonna go to the show ( I think Erin Flemming's hot) these guys are probably a bunch of fags, but ya never know, ya know?
While The Lobster Quadrille appreciates the mention, there are a couple of things that should probably be cleared up here:
First, the article seems to indicate that Solomon Blaylock is still one of Jehovah's Witnesses. This is not the case. He left the church some years ago.
Second, this is not a religious act per se...anyone who shows up expecting such will be disappointed. The Lobster Quadrille performs in the manner of a satanic tent revival, and those who take issue with blasphemy and profanity will want to stay far away.
Thank you kindly.
