Re: “Former Idol contestant Latia Lee bounces back from tragedy

O.M.G. I am so grateful to be the big cousin of this star, who I, in fact, see her as my inspiration and motivation not to give up, and keep going strong in spite of! I love you Latia Lee, and so very proud of you...

Re: “Wreck Loose is far from a shut-in band

I saw these guys at Howlers for Bloomfest and they were a great show. Look forward to seeing them again and hearing more stuff from them.

Re: “Inaugural Strip District Music Festival lands at venues throughout the neighborhood

"The festival, organized by local concert promoter Josh Bakaitus," im sorry but i think you mean Drusky Entertainment. I realise Drusky can't attach his name to things from fear of a boycott after his racist remarks. But come on CP at least do the right thing and don't be deceitful.

Re: “Ring in 2015 with predictions and wishes from our music writers

Lets put the best on one stage! Sounds like a City Paper sponsored event.

Also as for bringing back the funk and alternative spaces.

in 2014 I used a city parks pavilion for Pittonkatonk, an abandoned lot (Bayardstown Social Club), and a plant nursery (Shadyside Nursery) for events.

I try to create events that cross musical genres and build a diverse night of entertainment at the Weather Permitting Series. The problem is we have sound restrictions that limit the types of music we can have. As Pandemic (voted best dance party by 2014 CP) I produce dance parties that often times include live bands that are acoustic (i.e. Raya Brass Band, Timbeleza, May Day Marching Band, Lungs Face Feet, Pitchblack, Detroit Party Marching Band, etc). I'd love to see more of this happening around the city. On Feb 21 I'm working on a show at Brillobox featuring The Pressure, Beauty Slap, and Grand Piano. That's 3 bands with horns that are from totally different genres.

Re: “Ali Spagnola's Power Move

Alicia Spagnola steals her music from others. She was FIRED from the Ice Crew and one phone call would have confirmed that if the author of this article would have bothered. She will fail in LA because she will quit when it gets too hard for her to stay sober. She is an alcoholic trainwreck and has many nudes on the internet.

Re: “New Releases

I think the reviewer intended positive remarks on the Coastal Remedy new release, To The World... however, it left me wondering if he actually listened to the whole thing. Each track is more amazing than the last, culminating with the heartfelt and moving "Frozen" at the end of 14 incredible tracks. No, I have no personal interest in them ~ I am simply a dedicated fan. There is so much intensity and talent here, and they are still young. Most bands couldn't produce a better album after years in the business. Expect more fantastic things from them. They are oozing creativity and soul. See them live if you get the chance!!

Re: “For musicians, age can be an obstacle

As a student of Vaudeville and also a theatre professional, I've long said that we need venues in Pittsburgh for variety shows. We need a place where a few or several different performances take place of an evening, and folks in the neighborhood become accustomed to heading out to the theater on those particular nights of the week, to take in whatever is playing.

The variety shows could include all sorts of performers, of all ages. They could get paid as in Vaudeville (by how many persons were in the act and/or whether they were headliners/next to closing), or they could get a percentage of the take for the evening. And there could be amateur nights on some evenings.

When the Kelly-Strayhorn opened, it seemed perfect to provide such an attraction, and so did the August Wilson Center. We still could try this.

Of course, another lack in Pittsburgh is a nightclub, such as the old Holiday House, where there is food and drink but the main attraction is the show. However, that is separate from the concern at hand -- getting young performers in front of their fans-to-be.
