Miller fans gather for vigil at Blue Slide Park

Every Monday, CP staff writer Jordan Snowden wraps up the weekend in local and national music news with #MusicMonday. Here's what went down in the past few days.

Local

Yesterday, Twitter fan account @MacMillerMemoir noticed a change on Apple Maps. Blue Side Park, a playground located in Frick Park, after which the late Mac Miller named his debut studio album, has been mysteriously renamed to Mac Miller's Blue Slide Park.


The update shows on Google Maps as well. There has been no official announcement from local officials about the name change. Last year, during a vigil held in the park after Miller's passing, there was a fan-driven petition to requesting to rename the park to Mac Miller's Blue Slide Park. At the time, Mayor Bill Peduto said there were strict rules regarding such changes.


The name Throwback Thursday has never been more fitting. Nelly, TLC, and Flo Rida set off on tour this summer, and on Aug. 8, the 1990s and early 2000s music makers make a stop in Pittsburgh. 

If Stage AE is the place you like to be, PromoWest Live just unveiled a new app.

Rapper J.I.D.'s Catch Me If You Can tour landed in Pittsburgh on Saturday, featuring Wilkinsburg native Hardo.

When the show was announced early December, it quickly sold out. An after-party at Cake Nightclub, where J.I.D. would perform again for those who couldn't get tickets to the show, was then added. Saturday afternoon, Cake decided to cancel the event.

Important update for those attending or planning on attending the Adventure Club show.

And Brooke Annibale has a remix EP coming out soon.

National

On March 30 for the first time ever, Australian looping master Tame Impala, will perform on Saturday Night Live.

A collection of handwritten lyrics, poems and watercolor paintings by Joni Mitchell is set to be reprinted and sold this October.

And finally, both Chance the Rapper and Glee star Lea Michele said "I Do" this weekend.


Check back next week for another round of #MusicMonday.
