Re: “Dave Matthews Band's Boyd Tinsley talks about longevity, playing Pittsburgh and the group's 25th anniversary

I saw DMB in Pittsburgh in 2010 at Heinz Field, I don't think I've seen the band play that good ever...20-30 minute versions of #41 and Two Step that left most people breathless. Clear skies, moon rose behind the band, It seemed like they played 11-14 songs at 2 hours and 45 minutes, but they might have played more songs...i was completely amazed and converted...the closest to what I heard and saw at Pittsburgh was captured on CD, DMB Live at Wrigley Field in Chicago...

Re: “Faced with steep renovation costs, Pittsburgh's James Street Gastropub launches #SaveJamesStreet campaign

Dear Editor,

I would like to share my thoughts regarding the recent article about James Street Gastro Pub. James Street is a very cool venue with a lot to offer. It would be a shame if it were no longer part of the North Side entertainment scene. I am troubled by a couple of things that I read. Mr. Saftner said that because of noise complaints the livelihood of the pub is at risk. This is not new that noise is an issue. The upper floors are not air conditioned and the windows are open . A single flute player would be acceptable but I don't see that on the schedule any time soon. The owner needs to update the building and is playing on our kind and generous nature to foot the bill. Well, we are already paying. There is a cover charge to walk in the door and the food prices have gone way up and the quality of the food has gone down. So I usually stop at the Park House for a couple of drinks and great food at a fair price before I go to a show. The owner is taking advantage of some publicity and is now asking us to help pay for updates. Stop the madness! He needs to be like every other responsible business owner and use the money he's already making off us to make the improvements. Oh, and my house and car need a few repairs if anyone wants to help me pay.

Re: “Suggestions for an improved Kenny Chesney experience in 2017

Remind me then please...why do we bring in Kenny Chesney? 'cause he's a 'Motivational Entertainer' ? 'cause he brings the Best Crowds from under their rocks? Or because the cost of cleaning up after him/them is still less than the money he brings in. Oh Yuck.
