  • The Cynics to release Here We Are at 31st Street Pub

    Michael Kastelic and fellow Cynic and Get Hip Records main man Gregg Kostelich are giving the local scene something to buzz about: a new record, Here We Are. The CD-release show is Oct. 4 at the 31st Street Pub with The Ugly Beats, from Austin, Texas, Black Tie Revue, The Leftovers and DJ Zombo. ... In local music-biz news, a couple weeks back, longtime concert promoter Jon Rinaldo phoned to say that he would no longer be booking national acts at the 150-capacity South Side room Club Café, where he'd been doing a lot of mainly Triple-A shows. He said he's moving his shows to the larger Diesel, and was unsure what would be going on in Club Café. The new national-talent buyers for the space are Gary Hinston, who books the Three Rivers Arts Fest, joined by Mike Sanders from Opus One Productions. Opus One, which books and operates out of Mr. Small's Theatre in Millvale, has recently been quite active in promoting shows at different venues, including the recent sold-out Interpol concert at the Byham Theater, and a series of concerts, co-sponsored by WYEP, at the Carnegie Music Hall of Oakland.
