For the first time ever, Courtney Barnett made a performance stop in Pittsburgh. (Heart eyes emoji)
I’m still buzzing ‘bout Courtney Barnett’s show last night in Pittsburgh. Now if only I had captured a good photo! pic.twitter.com/chAF9c7jvm— Scott Tady (@scotttady) October 20, 2018
How come none of you clowns told me about Courtney Barnett until after her first show in Pittsburgh?— Uncle Crappy (@unclecrappy) October 22, 2018
The ultimate Beatles tribute band, The Fab Four, rocked the Byham Theater Saturday night. As someone who never got to see the iconic 1960s band in person, this was as close as one can get. Besides sounding incredibly close to a live Beatles performance (the members played every instrument themselves and sung without avail), throughout the two-hour show, the band had three costumes changes to represent the different phases of The Beatles: suit and tie early pop (A Hard Days Night), brightly colored psychedelic rock (Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band), long hair, don’t care back to the basics rock (Abbey Road). The appearance really added that extra something.
While the music was lovely (aren’t The Beatles always great to the ears), The Fab Four also totally engaged the theater. They encouraged fans to get up and dance and clap along. They threw a free t-shirt into the audience. They called out audience members in a comical way. There was even a proposal to the song, “Till There Was You.”
Such a short period of time did not allow the band to play all my favorites, but in their defense, there are so many to choose from. So, the next time The Fab Four makes a stop in Pittsburgh, I will probably be attending again, and I highly recommend you do too.
P.S. Looking for something to do tonight? Jam out to

Many Swedish House Mafia fans are not, in fact, Swedish. So when the electronic group made a reunion announcement via live broadcast, the message was lost in translation (ha!).
Wishing we spoke Swedish right now 😬https://t.co/KiAuBpjRVF— BBC Newsbeat (@BBCNewsbeat) October 22, 2018

Despite Notre Dame Stadium being around for 88 years, a musician has never performed in the stadium. And although there was snow, country star Garth Brooks became the first person to put on a concert for the Fighting Irish.
