(Things to do while being absolutely mesmerized Ã¢â‚¬Â¦)
Friday, May 11
Comedy May-Ham, 8:00 p.m., Rex Theater, Sahsside
The Macyapper takes time out from his quest to “out” PittGirl to drop some funny on you. Other comedians include Dr. Awkward, Gab Bonesso and the provebial “more”. Rocco Supreme hosts, tickets are 7 bucks.
Gary Hoey, 8:00 p.m., Moondogs, Blawnox
Surf-rock influenced Gary Hoey plays perros de la luna tonight. He does a great cover of Focus’ “Hocus Pocus”, although his version doesn’t have the yodeling. Feel free to make your own “yodeling in the Allegheny River Valley” joke here.
Saturday, May 12
Beauty Pageant Bar Crawl , 7:00 p.m., Smokin’ Joes, Sahsside
The good people (Read: Drinkers, partiers, and general good-timers) over at Meetin Pittsburgh are throwing another bar crawl, this one beauty-pageant-themed. So ladies, you show up in a gown and bar hop, although actual hopping might be an issue in heels and taffeta, if I spelled taffeta correctly. Guys have the option of showing up as a “Host” which would work out awesome if you had a baby blue tuxedo with the big-ass 70s ruffled shirt.
Drinking in the bar crawl fashion is usually fun to being with, and coulping it with a sort of Cacophony Society hook like this should double your fun.
Shawn Mullins , 10:30 p.m., Club Cafe, Sahsside
Plus, you’d look really good for the Mullins show in a ball gown and sash that reads “Miss Taken”.
Never Souled Out: All Night Dance Party, 8:00 p.m., The Church, The OCC
Juddy and the Soulcialism crew are all involved in this shindig that brings DJs from the UK into Braddock to spin in a former church. I was there for Flux a couple weeks back, and it’s a good space that should suit this thing quite well. Tickets are 8 bucks in advance, 10 at the door, and it’s BYOB. It’s probably also BYOS(weat), but that’s part of the charm, I think. Cut yourself a slice of Northern Soul rug.
Sunday, May 13
Hang out with your mom if you can, call her if you can’t, remember her if she’s gone. Get her some flowers or something, she’ll like that.
My mom’s real subtle with the gift hints, calling me up the other day and saying “Boy, don’t forget, Mothers Day is at your cousins house, be there by noon. And by the way, I could really use a spa treatment.”
