Sensi Trails at Celebrations Bar & Grill
I’m excited to share many shows that are happening in and around Pittsburgh this weekend. Genres represented include rock, rockabilly, blues, rap, reggae, alternative, emo, and punk. If you can make it out this weekend, there’s probably a show you’d love to catch.
I’ll be attending the Spring Alternative Music Fest on Saturday. Some other top picks this weekend include the Limousine Beach LP Release Show at Brillo Box, Nate Cross at The Government Center, the Understatement Album Release Show at Eden, and Trainwrecked at Casey’s Drafthouse.
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.
