I strongly believe that there needs to be a greater usage of downtown venues. Adults and Kids alike should be absorbing the unique cultural experiences of downtown shows. Once the experience and interaction of these events (small and big) take place, people will contribute to the scene and a snowball effect will occur. REMEMBER: It's ultimately up to the people of Pittsburgh to put their city on the map! Whether its through making their own music, contacting bands and venues, or just showing up:: EVERYONE MUST DO SOMETHING! All of the downtown theaters and venues(that seem to be attracting an older crowd or dry of people every time i pass by ) should take on after Mr. Smalls Theater and start opening their doors to bands that people of all ages want to see.
