Rock the Weekend! Shows 8/11-8/13/17

The weekend is here once again and, as usual,  there are scores of events for Pittsburgh rockers to choose from! One Punksburgher ambitiously attempts to narrow it down and create her ideal to-do list.

Friday, August 11
Punk Rock Karaoke at Black Forge Coffee House
Tonight at Black Forge do your worst to classic punk songs for a rad cause! The awesome folks of Trash to Thrash, who “upcycle” crappy skateboards for the kiddos, will be raffling off some decks custom-painted by local artists to raise funds. It’s all associated with The Punk Rock Karaoke Collective who organize fundraisers across the country for grassroots political and community organizations. These dudes offer a catalog of over 800 songs and have raised $64,000 benefiting 71 organizations to date! The festivities begin at 8 pm and although they’ll provide some FREE libations, BYOB-ing is recommended since yinz are a bunch of lushes.

Also, I’d basically bankroll studio time for Inter Arma at this point, but I’m getting ahead of myself.

Gatecreeper opened the show with thunderous Arizona death metal. I couldn’t tell you much more than that—I’m a Gatecreeper beginner and I was crowded around a tiny back-bar TV trying to watch the first-period barnburner with about two dozen other people. I certainly want to investigate them on Bandcamp—A few doomy booms had people turning their heads from the screen toward the hall. Sounded brutal in there, so today I wrote Gatecreeper on a Post-It note and stuck it on my desk.
