Popular Lawrenceville music, food, and party venue Spirit is turning 7 years old. Since opening in 2015, Spirit has hosted countless dance nights and concerts featuring talented local and traveling musicians, and served up tons of pizza from their on-site kitchen.
In true Spirit fashion, the space is hosting a huge party on Sat., April 9 featuring some of Pittsburgh’s finest, as well as legendary indie rock act of Montreal. The of Montreal performance will be the anchor of the party and will take place upstairs in Spirit Hall. Supporting them will be up-and-coming Pittsburgh band Mani Bahia & The Mob, pianist and vocalist Jon David Russell, and experimental free jazz quartet The Flavor Pals.
Downstairs in Spirit Lodge is where the party will feature some of the big names in Pittsburgh nightlife. Stephania Tsong aka Formosa, from queer dance party Jellyfish, will be in the building, followed by HUNY, founder of Mostbeautifullest and Cherry Bomb parties. Closing out the night will be Spirit’s resident DJ w00dy, described as “experimental queer dance chaos in its purest form.”
As a part of the festivities, Spirit has also teamed up with Torch & Dagger Tattoo shop to offer free flash tattoos on a first-come, first-serve basis. The tattoos will be sourced from Spirit’s Instagram contest
where interested participants are encouraged to submit drawings of a “Spirit Turns 7” themed tattoo. The winner of the contest will receive free entry to the party.
