Hello, world. No new posts yesterday or this morning, sorry about that — I’ve got a ton of stuff partly written but life and work keep getting in the way of finishing anything! Stay tuned.
Meanwhile, please enjoy this guide to a couple must-see shows taking place in Pittsburgh tonight and tomorrow night!
Oakland, California’s Owl
at the Smiling Moose
1306 East Carson Street, Pittsburgh (South Side)
Friday 16 November 2012 | 10:00pm | $5 | 21+ only
Owl are currently touring the nation in support of their debut full-length. You can check it out in all its 70s stoner metal goodness right here:
Appearing with them in Pittsburgh this evening will be a pair of punk metal bands — Pissbath from Tennessee and Ratface from right here in the Burgh. To sweeten the deal even more, you also get local death/doom icons Derketa. Facebook event page is right here… Don’t miss it!
Ottawa, Ontario’s Biipiigwan
with The Ravenna Arsenal and VⒺⒼA
at the Bloomfield Bridge Tavern
4412 Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh (Bloomfield)
Saturday 17 November 2012 | 9:00pm | $5 | 21+ only
So it’s the return of those grimy sludgey Canadians Biipiigwan! They just came through town this summer, but they’re back for more. If you missed that show back in August (and be honest, that’s most of you reading this), you can get yourself up to speed by reading my review of their Nibaak EP, or simply by listening to it here:
Also appearing will be local metal darlings VEGA (who also opened for the Beepeegs’ last show here) and Ohioans The Ravenna Arsenal. RSVP on Facebook here, and be sure to get there early for some of the BBT‘s famous Polish cuisine!
