Two band shows are pretty rad. Two band basement shows? Even better. Two band basement shows where you can go upstairs and play Mario Party between sets? HELL YES. Saturday night I headed out to Brookline to catch two awesome locals at Looking For Group (check out our interview with co-founder Brayton Batson). I also ran into roaming Punksburgh correspondent Ray Kolcun (of Crooked Cobras) and bullied him into sharing his thoughts on each band.
In our first Punksburgh Profile, Brian from The Danzas speaks to Brayton Batson, one of the owners of Looking For Group and drummer for Pittsburgh punk rock band Thanks Dad. Looking For Group is a gaming/coworking space and part time DIY venue in Brookline. They discuss the formation of LFG, hosting shows there, and, of course, favorite Pittsburgh pizza.
