Critics' Pick: Dark Wave Cabaret at Cattivo | Music | Pittsburgh | Pittsburgh City Paper


Technically, Halloween is only one day a year, but for spooky souls, it lasts through all of October. Any day of the month is fit for a ghoul’s night out, like the Dark Wave Cabaret at Cattivo, which bills itself as “two floors of spooktacular entertainment.” (If Halloween lasts the whole month, so do its puns.) One floor features the goth sounds of DJs Derelict, Erica Scary, KellyA and Callisto. The other features local bands covering angsty favorites, like darkwave rockers Action Camp playing The Smiths and Thunder Vest taking on The Runaways. On top of it all, the event benefits Mike Devine, a 2018 candidate for Pennsylvania state representative, because the scariest thing of all is not caring about local elections.

9 p.m. 146 44th St., Lawrenceville. $9. 21 and older. 412-687-2157 or
