There is a Light…

So…this charming man…suedehead…the last of the international playboys…



Morrissey is not going to be playing Heinz Hall this evening. He left town to help his ailing ma which is a very good reason. The ticket “master” told me that the show will definitely be rescheduled! I’ve been waiting to see him live since he cancelled an early 90’s show at the tent at Station Square.

In the interim, here are some thoughts on Morrissey. All of which I love.
I love that Morrissey owns his cynicism and depressing wit.

Hellblinki: Garfield Artworks Tuesday 9/25

September 20th, 2012 geekstar Posted in Music | 2 Comments »

Hellblinki with Patricia Wake and Illusion of Joy
Tuesday, September 25th
Garfield Artworks (4931 Penn Ave.)
8 PM (all ages)

Hellblinki has emerged out of the bohemian mountain enclave of Asheville, NC, from which Andrew Benjamin (vocals, guitar, drums, accordion), Valerie Meiss (vocals, accordion, toy piano, ukelele, saw), & JonPaul Hess (bass, keyboard, organ pedals) deliver their signature blend of American folk, European cabaret, punk, and noise rock experimentation. Hellblinki creates a world from found sound, pirate songs, and dirty south blues. The lyrics are philosophical, the tunes are odd and catchy, and Hellblinki ushers the audience into a grinningly sinister world, not quite like our own.

The band has opened for Gogol Bordello, Unknown Hinson, and Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, and has toured the country with Voltaire. They have entertained festival-goers & revelers at Dragon*Con, Green Man Festival, and Brooklyn’s Hallowmass and Dances of Vice. The trio is embarking on a nationwide tour this fall — see them in Pittsburgh at Garfield Artworks on Tuesday, September 25th.

A vaudeville nightmare with a backbeat and catchy tunes…A three–ring American punk circus where something is going on in every dark corner, freaky and theatrical but unmistakably musical just the same.” – Bill DeYoung, Connect Savannah

Beca (Anna Kendrick) is that girl who’d rather listen to what’s coming out of her headphones than what’s coming out of you.  Arriving at her new college, she finds herself not right for any clique but somehow is muscled into one that she never would have picked on her own: alongside mean girls, sweet girls and weird girls whose only thing in common is how good they sound when they sing together, in the new out-loud comedy Pitch Perfect.

When Beca takes this acoustic singing group out of their world of traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mash-ups, they fight to climb their way to the top of the cutthroat world of college a cappella.  This could wind up either the coolest thing they’ll ever do or the most insane, and it will probably be a little of both.

Loaded with new takes on old favorites to hits of right now that are seamlessly mixed together, mashed-up and arranged like you’ve never heard before, Pitch Perfect is directed by Jason Moore, who opened our eyes to the very misbehaved life of puppets in the surprise Broadway sensation Avenue Q.
