Ladies and gentlemen of the Pittsburgh region, it’s time to sew that Amebix patch back onto your shorts (you know, the one that almost got ripped off by some hardcore kid who kept trying to start a mosh pit the last time you went to a basement show), and make sure your Docs are laced up tight.  That’s right, Skull Fest — the annual celebration of all things punky and crusty — returns this weekend!

Dozens of bands — locals big and small, old and new, as well as several traveling from all over the country, and even a couple from Canada and Europe — are scheduled to perform at various locations all over Bloomfield, Polish Hill, and Lawrenceville all weekend long!

Everything kicks off this evening (Friday), so without any further delay, below you will find your schedule of events.  Each show is individually priced, but passes are still available which will give you access to everything happening on all three days; just visit the Skull Fest website to buy yours.  (Any tickets purchased now will be held at the door.)

    • Sorry, Cassie! I used to try to write these things on a weekly basis, to summarize shows that were happening around town, but it got to be overwhelming. I don’t write nearly as often anymore.

      But if you are trying to keep track of stuff happening in the Pittsburgh area, I highly recommend the Pittsburgh Trestle. They’ve got a really detailed calendar and you are more likely to find stuff ahead of time if you check there.
