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


Indie dream-pop band, Sleep Movies dropped a psychedelic music video for “Clouded,” a song off their debut album, Sleep Movies Drinks the Potion.

ATTN local bands, keep a close watch on Deutschtown Music Festival’s social media pages today. HughShows are looking for two acts to perform at next year’s event.

The Pioneers, an indie band with modern synth folk arrangements won a main stage spot at the HughShows Holidays movie screening.

Online sales are quickly selling out for the Legendary Album Series: Grateful Dead's American Beauty. Featured musicians include Eric "Pappy" Weingrad, Jill Simmons, Addi Twigg, Randy Baumann, Bob Banerjee, Chris Colditz, Joey Waslousky, Read Connoly, and David Tauberg.

WYEP is also giving away a pair of tickets for the event.

Local rock band The Hawkeyes released a new song "A Stone's Throw Away" via Misra Records.

Live music lovers: Stage AE is holding a "Five Days of Giveaways" contest which includes prizes packages containing concert tickets and more. There is still time to enter all five contests!

Upcoming events to be aware of:


The remainder of Justin Timberlake's 2018 Man of the Woods tour has been postponed due to bruised vocal cords. Because of this, Timberlake's 2019 rescheduled tour dates conflict with next year’s Coachella Music Festival. So the pop-singer has been forced to pull his scheduled appearance at the California show. Coachella attendees aren't disappointed.

It's Ariana Grande's time to shine! After the success of her song "thank u, next" and the accompanying music video, Grande added nine shows to her upcoming Sweetener tour.

Lucky us, Grande was already scheduled to make a stop in Pittsburgh.

EDM and ... Kingdom Hearts? You read that right. Electric music guru, Skrillex, teamed up with Japanese-American singer-songwriter and producer, Hikaru Utada to create the theme song for Kingdom Hearts III.

That's all for today, folks. Come back next week for another #MusicMonday Wrap-up.
