8/31’s live music, 9/1’s TSS and live music

At the last minute, I caught a FB event posting for The Buckle Downs at The Frick, 5 mins from home.  Kiki Brown and the band put on a special performance.  More on that tomorrow, including a 60 Seconds of Pittsburgh piece on YouTube.

Today on The Soul Show, a tribute to MJ, new music from The Internet, a continued touch on The Queen’s music (including a beautiful rendition of “My Way”) and Three Rivers at Three, with our own Bridgette Perdue, Daryl Strodes and others.  We’ll review the Concert Calendar, which you can also see here.  Tony Campbell is at Wallace Whiskey Room in E. Liberty later. Have a great Labor Day weekend!

Greetings from Mike C

Welcome, everyone, to this new mini-project of mine, the soulshowmike website.  Its purpose is to integrate all of my music-related content and links under one umbrella: Mixcloud archives, 60 Seconds of Pittsburgh, Instagram pic posts, FB blogging, etc.  It will be a work in progress over the next month, but one main feature I wanted to develop, the Concert Calendar, is up and running as of now.  It is by no means 100% comprehensive, but it does represent the info I disseminate on The Soul Show every Saturday.  One day, perhaps, we’ll have one master calendar for all music events in the city, but for now this can serve as one of the tools you use.
