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


What if every time you listened to a certain song you could scream, "Hey! That's me!" to all your friends? Here's your chance ...

On Saturday, local hip-hop artist Jor debuted his first album, Light Soul, at Refresh PGH. Light Soul is now available on all streaming platforms.

Speaking of Saturday premiers, DJ Shoe's new monthly Junction dance party kicked off this weekend, despite the weather.

Singer Brittney Chantele's birthday is on Feb. 5. This year, she is asking for donations to help her complete treatment for fibromyalgia.
Spare Change, a video series that works with local artists and businesses in support of charity, teamed up with pop-star Daya and WYEP to raise money for the Tree of Life. You can see the full video on YouTube.

What are you doing Feb. 3? The Alternative Souper Bowl has free music from 12-3 p.m.

The weird tweets and press releases on social media this weekend were not fake. There really was a DiGiorno House pop-up in Pittsburgh with free pizza, music, and ranch fountains, as well as a foam pit and appearance by YouTube celeb Kris London. On Friday there was an EDM event and Sunday attendees could watch football.


Fifty years ago on Saturday, Led Zeppelin released its first album.
To pay homage to the legendary rock group, Stage AE and The Rex both have shows on Fri., Feb. 15 - Zoso - The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience and Led Zeppelin 2 "Celebrating the 50th Anniversary Of Led Zeppelin II," respectively.

Emma Bunton, better know as Baby Spice, took a photo on the steps used in the iconic "Wannabe" video. Fans quickly took to Twitter to share their photos on the steps.

After 13 years, The Who fans are getting new music. The group confirmed an album due later this year along with a US tour, which is making a stop in Pittsburgh.

That's all for today. Check back next week for another edition of #musicmonday.
