November Pittsburgh concerts


11/23 Jay Reatard @ Brillobox

This is worth going to if only to see what all the fuss is about. I've been reading about this guy nonstop over the past couple years, but for some reason, I thought he was a teenager. Turns out he's 29. A few weeks ago he tweeted that his entire band quit on him. Hopefully they'll have their shit together by the time the Brillobox show rolls around.

11/4 OK Go @ Mr. Small's

Our recent interview subjects are kicking off their tour in the Burgh, and they'll be showing off some of the tunes from their forthcoming album. "White Knuckles" and "End Love" are the two most Prince-sounding songs I've ever heard in my life. It'll be cool to hear how they sound in a live setting.

11/6 Brian Wilson @ Carnegie Music Hall of Homestead
I saw Brian Wilson once before, when I used to work security at the Post-Gazette Pavilion in 2002. I wasn't sure how a guy whose speech was slurred would be able to sing coherently, but he did, and the show was outstanding. Expect lots of Beach Boys classics during this performance.
