When Yinz Were Young At Black Forge 2
This Saturday and Sunday, there are some promising shows to catch. I’ve narrowed it down to bring you only my top choices for who to see.
On Saturday, you can choose from seeing an alternative/indie show that includes Old Neon at Voodoo Homestead, the Water Trash Album release at Mr. Smalls, or a hip hop show including BrothaMans at Level Up Studios.
On Sunday, you can catch the On Your Nerves show at Black Forge 2 if you want a pop-punk feel or you can see 10 Years at the Crafthouse if you are into nu-metal.
Note: Shows are always subject to change or be canceled. I recommend buying your ticket in advance &/or checking before leaving for the show. Buying tickets in advance also shows venues your support for your favorite bands.
