Obscure Game Night
Wednesday 9p
Hambone’s, Lawrenceville

Not much on the website, but it looks as if it’s a night dedicated to weird and obscure board games. Sounds ridiculously fun.

Gojira with Devin Townsend and The Atlas Moth
Saturday 8p
Mr. Smalls, Millvale

If you’re at all into metal, this is an awesome lineup. That’s a lot of musicianship for one evening.

Pulp Fiction
Saturday Midnight
Manor Theatre, Squirrel Hill

Tarantino’s classic 1994 film shown in all its glory on the silver screen. If you’re like me, you were too young to see it when it was new.

I’m a week early on this one, but let’s support our newest comedy club. Their mission statement: “Arcade Comedy Theater provides an interactive platform for players of all levels, both onstage and off, to experience various forms of theatrical comedy, from proven standards to offbeat styles.”

Eric About Eric

I've lived in Pittsburgh only since 2004, during which I have spent time in many a neighborhood. For the past year, I've lived in Bloomfield. Yes, Bloomfield -- where the Italian food is fresh and the karaoke nights are long. I do not have formal training in writing, but it's always been a serious aspiration of mine. I'm interested in the different aspects of life in Pittsburgh. We have an extremely unique ecosystem full of young professionals, hipsters, college kids, older folks, coffee shops, dive bars, old churches turned music venues, and yes even starving artists. It's the perfect city to dip your toes into the waters of whatever art or trade you could possibly imagine.
