To celebrate the 100th birthday of the late American icon, Leonard Bernstein, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra honored his work each night this weekend with pieces that Bernstein himself conducted with the PSO from 1944-1984.
California indie rock band Weathers opened for rock trio Dreamers at Spirit on Thursday.
I am independently excited to hear Bernstein’s “Jeremiah” and Stravinski’s Firebird Suite, but then I found out that this was the combo that Bernstein conducted to premiere the symphony in Pittsburgh in ‘44, so now I am simply vibrating in my seat with excitement.— Samuel Rauhala (@srauhala) October 7, 2018

Welcome to Pittsburgh, Sandy's daughter!
I want to thank the City of #Pittsburgh for welcoming my daughter. She describes her neighborhood "First Friday" experience as true community. Art. Music. Connection in place. I am so very grateful she has this experience. pic.twitter.com/UMpkAN206B— sandymaxey (@sandymaxey) October 6, 2018
Only a few songs into his set at the A3CFestival and Conference, Lil Wayne fans were forced to evacuate the premises after an alternation in the crowd.
Lil Wayne was about 5 songs in, people were running out of the VIP tent. I started running too. I never heard gunshots. I stopped to head back then a 2nd wave of people were running so I had to run or get trampled.— David Dennis Jr. (@DavidDTSS) October 8, 2018

“...I love making music, I love writing. But I don’t feel like I’m a part of a game anymore; I just feel like I’m an artist.

Saturday night, the lights on the Empire State Building, which are normally white, flashed blue, green, and red in sporadic patterns.
New York residents were shocked, and no one knew what was causing the change.
