May Pittsburgh concerts

5/28 Of Montreal @ Ches-A-Rena

Although 2010 is going to be a great summer for concerts in Pittsburgh, the month of May isn't looking so hot. The best show to check out is Of Montreal, who've finally come back to Pittsburgh now that they're not as hot as they were a few years ago. Still, their last two albums Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer? and Skeletal Lamping have plenty of exciting moments and the band is known for its live show.

5/23 Insane Clown Posse, Kittie & Coolio @ Amphitheatre at Station Square
It's a slow month so why not give some love to ICP? I once saw ICP at a tiny bar in New Castle PA and will never forget the spectacle. It was one of the most intense shows I've seen start to finish (probably second, behind Slipknot). There were no "Let's slow it down for a minute" moments. Just lots of hard rock, with Faygo and glitter flying. But if I was attending this show, I'd be most excited to see Coolio, Mr. Gangsta's Paradise himself.
