Every Monday, CP staff writer Jordan Snowden wraps up the weekend in local and national music news with #MusicMonday. Here's what happened over the past couple of days.


Members of the socially conscious collective, 1Hood Media, completed and released the soundtrack to City Theatre's production of Pipeline as written by Dominique Morisseau. All the music on the soundtrack is original - played, written, and composed by 1Hood artists.

Electric-pop band AJR played a sold-out show at Stage AE and made a touching announcement.

Longturn Music, a Pittsburgh-based community for creators, performers, and fans of underground house and techno music, turned one. Happy 1st birthday, Longturn!

And there was a special surprise …

The band Jimmy Mayo dropped a four-track EP entitled Whoops on Friday via Chatterbot Records.

So far, there's only been praise for the EP on Twitter.


Mac Miller’s September passing has been ruled an accidental overdose. The L.A. County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner reported it was a fatal mix of fentanyl, cocaine, and alcohol.

Miller fans are still taking the news hard, and the ruling has brought up issues of addiction and fentanyl abuse.

Speaking of the late R&B singer, Prince’s estate paired up with Sony’s Legacy Recordings and announced that they will be uploading weekly arrays of previously unavailable music videos to streaming sites.

Fans find it disrespectful, and a ploy for cash.

Are the Spice Girls really the Spice Girls without Posh? The '90s girl group announced today that they will be putting on a reunion tour throughout the U.K., but without Victoria Beckham.

Makes you wonder why they chose to do a tour now …

Moving away from money schemes, Janet Jackson gave a powerful speech about gender equality while accepting the MTV Europe Music Award for Global Icon.

The #MeToo movement is still going strong. 

Well, that's all folks. Pop in next week for another #MusicMonday wrap-up.
