We know how hard it is to be a working band or musician in Pittsburgh, and we wanted to reward that work (you can check out all the prizes, qualifications and deadlines here). The competition aspect is simply a device to deliver those rewards.

Each week, we post a song from a local artist online for free. This week, we’re hearing from an inventive and melancholic indie-rock three-piece called Gravelarks.
