Two exciting news updates from BBGuns. After announcing that they signed to local label Crafted Sounds, the indie hip-hop duo then dropped the old-school sounding single, "Valley." The track is from BBGuns' upcoming June album, Help Yourself.

Oh yeah, BBGuns would like its fans to refer to themselves as BBs.
We see a lot of people refer to BBGuns fans with names like "Gunners" and "Gunheads" but the preferred nomenclature is "BB's" Thanks - MGMT— BBGuns (@BBGunsPGH) April 22, 2019
But speaking of Crafted Sounds, the label's compilation album, Bridges, was featured in Bandcamp's essential releases last week. The album is home to 21 songs from Sad Girls Aquatics Club to Bat Zuppel, and even the late Jesse Flati of The Lopez.
And Crafted Sounds donated the money made at its Bridges release/three-year anniversary party at Spirit on April 12 to Planned Parenthood of Western PA.

This year, 420 fell on a Saturday. Starship Mantis, Benji., and DJ Femi celebrated with an outer space-themed costume party at Cattivo.
While Jon Bindley, Chet Vincent, Angela Autumn, and over eight others took part in Honky Tonk Jukebox at the Allegheny Elks Lodge.
Saturday was also the one year anniversary of international EDM artist Avicii's passing. Today, Breis Gordan released a live set of an Avicii tribute he played last year at Tilden.
The day after Avicii died I played a set at TIlden. In honor of one of the most influential producers & DJs of all time, I dedicated the night to Tim. Every track I played that evening was influenced by Avicii, whether it was a bootleg, edit, original production, remix, etc.— breis gordan (@BREIS_music) April 22, 2019
