It’s been a while, and this weekend is super packed with all sorts of shows. This list is no means exhaustive of all of the music happening in Pittsburgh, but here’s some highlights that I, Siren, definitely think you should hit up.

Final MMF Fundraiser [The Good Time Bar & Grille / 8pm / $5 / 21+]
Honestly, I’d be doing y’all dirty if I didn’t suggest this. Aside from the fact that we are one of the media sponsors for the festival, this show is going to be an absolute banger.
Gift basket, 50/50 raffles will be used to support the festival!
Come GET DOWN at our amazing fundrasier series concerts!
One if by Land Bernies Danvers E&OS Duke Get This [Jesse Best Gallery / $8 / All Ages]
If I wasn’t going to be at the fundraiser, this is the show I’d be at. Solidly because One If By Land is from my home town and has members of some of my favorite no-longer-in-existence hometown bands, but also because the other bands are also solid as all get out.
Clear your schedules, mark your calendars and plan on rocking at the Inaugural Rock Show – GREEN ROOM @ The Jesse Best Gallery in Homestead, PA. Five killer bands in a brand new venue that’s not quite like anything else in the Steel City.
ONE IF BY LAND will be playing their first show in 2018, and we have put together quite a lineup. BERNIES is back from a longstanding hiatus. DANVERS will entertain as always. E&OS are continuing a rapid-fire streak of shows throughout the Keystone and beyond. Duke, Get This will be leaving their jobs in Erie and driving down to melt faces.
Hope to see you all there.

Joe Jack Talcum (Dead Milkmen) 4/27 at Club Cafe w/ Coolzey [Club Cafe / 10:15pm / $12-$15 / 21+]
Anthony Joseph “Joe” Genaro (born October 15, 1962 in Wagontown, Pennsylvania) is an American musician and songwriter, best known as the guitarist and co-lead vocalist for the punk rock group The Dead Milkmen. Currently residing in Philadelphia, Genaro has performed with a number of punk and indie rock groups, most recently including The Low Budgets, and is also a solo artist. He is of Italian heritage.
Golden era hip-hop roots planted in black Iowa dirt and tempered by 90s alternative era rock influence yields a juxtaposition of the dark, horrific nature of life paired with a slapstick and comedic view of the world, allowing for a wide, unpredictable arsenal of material ranging from soul-spilling indie bedroom rock to wise-cracking battle rap and on to radio pop.
Coolzey stepped into the public eye around 2005 with a demo album and a series of exploratory DIY tours with rapper/comedian and friend Schaffer the Darklord. Interest spread quickly and Coolzey found himself touring alongside hip-hop legends from Brand Nubian and Jurassic 5 as well as punk rock heroes like Dead Milkmen. Coolzey’s first album ‘The Honey’ was released in 2010 and second official full-length ‘Hit Factory’ in 2013. In these albums as well as in a number of EPs, collaborations and side projects, he finds his niche as a songwriter, navigating hip-hop, rock, punk and pop in the spirit of genre defying influences such as Ween, Beck, The Beastie Boys and Outkast.
Coolzey’s love for multiple genres can also be evidenced in his record label Public School Records, which curates music from the classic hip-hop of Bru Lei to the art pop of Belly Belt.
