John Wiese w/ Colin Self

Mon., Sept. 23, 7:30 p.m.
$15
Sometimes distressing, sometimes comforting, always interesting: the music of John Wiese treads in abstract, mostly atonal, mostly arrhythmic sound. Co-headlining with Wiese at 3577 Studios is the slightly more accessible electronic artist Colin Self, whose performances are as visual and theatrical as they are musical. Opening things up is the performance art project U+1F440, formerly known as Bubblesort.

Adagio Health's Transforming Women's Health Symposium

Tue., Sept. 24, 8 a.m.-6 p.m.

Valerie Jarrett, a former advisor to President Barack Obama, will be in town as the keynote speaker for the second annual Transforming Women’s Health Symposium. The Omni William Penn Hotel is hosting sessions focused on the opioid epidemic, the U.S. maternal health crisis, sexual harassment in the era of #MeToo, health equity for women and other marginalized populations, and sex education in schools.

WYEP Presents: An Evening With Ken Stringfellow at Bantha Tea Bar

Tue., Sept. 24, 7-10 p.m.
$25-$75
Ken Stringfellow, the founding member of late ’80s pop group The Posies, was intentional when choosing venues for his world tour, during which he'll revisit his landmark 2001 album Touched, and share songs and stories from his long run in the music industry. All the selected locations have a listener-friendly, non-rock-club atmosphere, and most importantly, a real acoustic piano. Bantha Tea Bar checks all those boxes as the destination for Stringfellow’s Pittsburgh stop, with local singer Emily Rodgers joining him for a few duets.
