Last Friday night I stopped by the WYEP Summer Music Fest – holy smokes – what a crowd – Pittsburgh loves an outdoor concert. Schenley Park looked amazing and the entire lawn was covered with people. It was a perfect Pittsburgh summer night.

WYEP is one of the biggest lovers of Pittsburgh. This is a radio station that has been a labor of love by some amazing Pittsburgh music lovers for many year. I am actually sitting in Oh Yeah listening to WYEP as I type this. This radio station is most definitely a cause that is worthy of your dollars and this is a great event. I attended Rock the Block in 2006 and had a great time.
$35 gets you food, drink, and an outdoor concert from Cracker and Pittsburgh’s own Donora.
