(Things to do while grabbing a light lunch Ã¢â‚¬Â¦)
Friday, May 18
Globalista Jam, 7:30 p.m., Modern Formations Gallery, Garfield
The gallery gets transformed into a “near East coffeehouse” for the night. Musicians, bellydancers, and an end of evening, all-invited, “open-floor collaborative jam.” which I truly hope has something to do with music and not foodstuffs.
Utterly Insane Comedians , 8:00 p.m., Slapsticks Comedy Loft, Castle Shannon-ish
Am I the only one who think this would be hilarious if they actually were insane? I mean clinically diagnosed? Kleenex boxes on their feet, jars of urine, tinfoil hats?
Go see some of Pittsburgh’s best comedians – David Kaye, Chris Ciardi, Brad Ryan and Chris Franz – in an “intimate New York style club setting” which I think means, you know, small.
Saturday, May 19
Chillaxin In The Square , 12:00-3:00 p.m., Market Square, Dahntahn
Sent in by the folks at the Downtown Partnership, this event is described as an “afternoon celebration offering outdoor dining, fine local merchants, vendors from the farmers market” and live entertainment. But look, I know for a fact you can go to Market Square just about any time of the day or night and see “Live Entertainment”. Depending, of course, on your definition of “entertainment”.
The use of the word “ax” in any way associated with Market Square slightly unsettles me, but ok, if hanging out in Market Square is good enough for Sid The Sloth , then it’s good enough for me.
Pittsburgh Guitars Big Beatles Show, 8:00 p.m., Rex Theater, Sahsside
Non-stop Beatles music played by over a dozen local musicians… For those of us old enough to (ok, barely, but still ) remember them, the Beatles were awesome, huge, greatest, all of these, so this would be a good gig to check out
