March Pittsburgh concerts



MUST-SEE SHOW:
3/17 Morrissey @ Carnegie Music Hall (Oakland)

I'm in the camp of folks who find Morrissey to be an overrated, pompous ass. But he's still a legend and he never plays in this city, so we'll call it our must-see show. Please go to this concert and heckle him. I will not be satisfied unless this night results in Morrissey flipping out and cursing Pittsburgh (again).

ALSO WORTH ATTENDING:
3/12 Busta Rhymes @ Gateway Clipper
Fo realz! The wacky rapper with a few screws loose performs on the Gateway Clipper as it travels down the rivers of Pittsburgh. Woo-hah!

3/28 A.C. Newman @ Andy Warhol Museum
The New Pornographers' frontman plays a show at my favorite local venue, in support of his second solo album Get Guilty. What happened to that album, by the way? People were talking about it for like 2 days, and then it dropped off the face of the earth. Perhaps this tour will re-ignite some interest in it.

Others to keep in mind:
3/1 Mudvayne & Nonpoint @ Club Zoo
3/1 Fleetwood Mac @ Mellon Arena
3/2 The Airborne Toxic Event @ Mr. Small's
3/3 Steve Poltz @ Club Cafe
3/4 We the Kings @ Mr. Small's
3/5 Joan Baez @ Byham Theater
3/6 Cheech & Chong @ Benedum Center
3/7 Margaret Cho @ Carnegie Music Hall (Homestead)
3/7 Punchline @ Diesel
3/9 Here We Go Magic @ Garfield Artworks
3/11 Bouncing Souls @ Mr. Small's
3/12 Busta Rhymes @ Gateway Clipper
3/13 Butch Walker @ Mr. Small's
3/14 Bleeding Through @ Diesel
3/19 Kottonmoth Kings @ Gravity
3/20 Erin McKeown @ Thunderbird Cafe
3/27 Britney Spears & Pussycat Dolls @ Mellon Arena
3/28 Lewis Black @ Heinz Hall
3/28 Phil Vassar @ Pepsi-Cola Roadhouse
3/29 Glen Tilbrook @ Hard Rock Cafe

Morrisey is already starting to cancel shows. This is how he rolls. I would put this show at 51% as actually happening at this point! haha I love the Smiths but have no real interest in his solo stuff in 2009 though!

I am going to The Brian Jonestown Massacre show for the same reason you are going to Morrisey...to hopefully see an onstage meltdown. Then again I like their music so win win anyway.
I'll be at A.C. Newman as well, I better got to meet you (both?)finally.

I bet Morrissey will happen. I'm not certain I'll be attending AC Newman yet. Hopefully!
