[ROCK] + FRI., JAN. 26
I first experienced the rock ’n’ roll goodness of Ugly Blondes when I snuck into a Battle of the Bands competition when I was 16 (a time when I would tell people I liked “desert rock”). A folky pop group won the comp and the Blondes came in second, but in my eyes, they should have taken home the gold. The crew is a Pittsburgh band through and through — you’ll leave Hambone’s feeling more yinzer than you have in your entire life, guaranteed.
