December Pittsburgh concerts



MUST-SEE SHOWS:

12/3-4 Girl Talk @ Stage AE
12/16-17 Wiz Khalifa @ Stage AE
The new Stage AE venue is open and Pittsburgh's two biggest names are ready to christen it. Girl Talk just dropped his newest album All Day and celebrates with two big shows. Meanwhile, local rapper Wiz Khalifa prepares to hit the stage just as he's finally starting to break through to the bigtime. His single "Black and Yellow" is lighting up iTunes (based on actual sales, unlike when local rapper Kellee Maize hilariously sent a press release touting that her single went to #1 on Amazon, even though it was just a free giveaway.) And Khalifa's major-label debut is scheduled for sometime in 2011. Catch him now before he blows up.

ALSO WORTH ATTENDING:
12/10-11 Ghostland Observatory @ Mr. Small's

I've been singing the praises of Ghostland for years, since I discovered them at Lollapalooza and was enchanted by their White Stripes-meets-Daft Punk blend of rock and electronics. Their last record wasn't as well-received, so hopefully the next album will be a return to form. Bring your cameras to capture Aaron Behrens' eye-popping dance moves.

Others to keep in mind:
12/1 Bryan Adams @ Byham Theater
12/3 Demetri Martin @ Byham Theater
12/3 Ryan Cabrera @ Hard Rock Cafe
12/3-4 Mannheim Streamroller @ Benedum Center
12/4 Zac Brown Band @ Pepsi Cola Roadhouse
12/6 Twiztid @ Mr. Small's
12/10 George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic @ Stage AE
12/13 Justin Bieber @ Consol Energy Center
12/15 Better Than Ezra @ Mr. Small's
12/22 Bear Cub @ Rex Theater
12/28 Punchline @ Diesel
12/31 Wu-Tang Clan @ Mr. Small's
