Last Saturday at The Fallout Shelter Punksburgh was joined by a SURPRISE GUEST VIDEOGRAPHER! It is our pleasure, especially mine-I get to go easy on this review, to introduce Drew Danen! Relive the magic!
Maybe the best collection of, and definitely the most organized, bathroom stickers.
Kicking off the evening with a bang was the “Alt Punk Rock” band hailing from Martins Fairy, OH, Appalachia Underground. I’d never seen these guys before, but the production team of Some Die Nameless rarely disappoint in their selections and now I can’t wait to catch AU’s awesomeness again!
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.

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.
On the one-week anniversary of this historic show, Punksburgh brings you a dazzling photo exclusive from a very special guest-contributor! Unofficial scene photographer and the man behind the Super Fun Time Awesome Party Band‘s 1’s & 2’s, Mr. Randall Reskovac!
Last Friday at The Smiling Moose saw the triumphant debut of Skratchtrax with impressive support provided by Rocky Dennis Face & Mindless Chaos! There was a slight snare when Evad & The Ominous Squad had to cancel due to illness, to no one’s liking, but Ryan McCready was able to expertly fill the void, commanding the stage all by his lonesome.
The show must go on, as they say, & it did in glorious fashion! Enjoy the sights & see you at a show!
