Tue., Nov. 10 (Music to Stream)
The Deep Roots of Pittsburgh. Never Coming Back. thedeeprootspittsburgh.bandcamp.com
This debut album from rock and roll band The Deep Roots of Pittsburgh was inspired by American rhythm and blues, jazz, country, and the lyrics of Bob Dylan.

“Everyone has lost something to COVID-19. Something that is never coming back. Some have lost loved ones, jobs, and livelihoods, and our thoughts and prayers go out to them. For most of us, the challenge is to just keep plowing ahead, faced with so much uncertainty,” states the group's Bandcamp page. “But Never Coming Back is also a statement of optimism. A decision has been made to go in a new direction that will hopefully be better. Kind of ironic for a four-piece rock band working in the tradition of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Kinks that took its name from The Lord of the Rings.”


Wed., Nov. 11 (IRL)
Robin and Bob. 6:30-9:30 p.m. Crafthouse Stage & Grill, 5024 Curry Road, Whitehall. Free. facebook.com/CrafthouseStageGrill
