County parks concert schedule revealed

Posted By on Thu, May 5, 2011 at 3:47 PM

On this, the springiest day in weeks -- okay, the only springy day in weeks -- we've gotten word from the Allegheny County Special Events Office about the summer county parks concert series. There's nothing here that excites me quite as much as, say, that super fun Yo La Tengo show or Dawes did last year, but we'll make do. (Make due? What does that phrase even mean?) (Okay, I'll just list the damn concerts.)
