Area native Missy Moreno returns home from Chicago with a current venture, Reset List — a rock band that makes it up as it goes along
Just like regular improv comedy, the band — drums, guitar, keyboards — starts with a suggestion from the audience. Then, on the spot, it creates a whole song from that suggestion. And they do a whole concert-length show like that.
If the promo video is any guide, it’s pretty funny stuff — somewhere in that sweet spot between homage and parody.
Moreno, a Point Park grad, co-founded the show while she and the other band members were training at the Second City Conservatory of Musical Improvisation. The group’s played two years running at both the Chicago Improv Festival and the New York City Music Improv fest
Reset List is doing two show on this, its first visit to Pittsburgh
Tonight’s is at Sing Sing Dueling Piano Bar, at the Waterfront, in West Homestead, at 8 p.m. (It’s right around the corner from where Moreno, a Steel Valley High grad, grew up.) Tickets are $10.
Moreno says the group will also play tomorrow night, at the Beerhive, in the Strip District.
