Tough choices for punks in Pittsburgh tonight

Before we get to today's MP3 Monday, I wanted to apprise you of three (3) events going on tonight in town that I was unable to highlight, but that are all worthy or your attention, especially if you are a retired punk, or a current punk, or an aspiring punk, or a book punk, or whatever:

— Tonight at 7 p.m., Sam McPheeters reads at the East Liberty branch of the Carnegie Public Library. McPheeters, of course, fronted Born Against and Wrangler Brutes, and is a general provocateur and madman. Apparently no one has every Youtubed the 5-inch split on one side of which he reads Patrick Henry's "Give me liberty" speech, or else I'd link you to that now. More info here.

— Tonight at the Mr. Roboto Project, Screaming Females return. The New Brunswick, NJ, band I profiled years ago and have noted several times since is now kind of a big deal, and touring to support their latest release, Ugly. Show is $7 and Crooked Teeth and Sports Metaphors open.

— And on the other end of town, at 222 Ormsby, Bomb the Music Industry headlines with World's Scariest Police Chases opening. BTMI is touring behind its latest, Vacation. '
