Jon Bindley, frontman of the Bindley Hardware Co., has incurred an outstanding reputation as a pioneer and poster child of the niche genre “Rust Belt Americana.” Built on a unique local history, the band writes nostalgically of the City of Bridges, which adds an air of community for fans that also hail from Pittsburgh. As friendly as ever, when he’s not performing you can usually find Jon at the Park House listening to the Shelf Life String Band, or in the audience at a Molly Alphabet show. Punksburgh caught up with him for today’s inquisition:

Iʻm back home, (mostly) recovered from Vegas, and the school year is just about over, which means it’s time to become nocturnal and go to all. the. freaking. shows. Here are five (plus a bonus out of town show!) that Iʻm especially looking forward to hitting up this month.
I saw Buffalo’s On The Cinder earlier this year playing at The Fallout Shelter (also with Evad & the Ominous Squad), and they rocked hard. Iʻm looking forward to round two. I’ve also been trying to catch the newly reunited Fuck Yeah, Dinosaurs!, but something has always come up. Not this time, universe!
The Dwarves put on a crazy good show, plus you get local favorites Thunder Vest, Porno Tongue, and those festive lads at the Super Fun Time Awesome Party Band. Itʻs been ages since I’ve seen either Thunder Vest or Porno Tongue, so I’m psyched. Donʻt miss out on this stacked lineup in the cozy comfort of Lawrenceville’s favorite dive bar. I promise you’ll have a super fun time. It will be an awesome party. There will be bands.
