We Go To Shows

Happy Friday! Happy #SharePGHMusicMonth! Shows to help you celebrate in style!

I got to pick one for #SharePGHMusicMonth & I chose a metal band that any fan of the genre should hear. They also have TWO shows this weekend!

Just as long as you think of them!

Once again this weekend I find myself lamenting the fact that I can’t be two or more places at once. With that in mind, he’s my wishlist for shows tonight, followed closely by even more rad shows that should be of interest!
