art all night 2017

20th art all night \ 4/29-30 / 36th street Pittsburgh

there were a number of issues oriented artworks this year at art all night, such as autism <left of jimi hendrix> / thrilled to see artwork on the tardis & bob ross! \ expected to see some trump protest art & indeed there were six of them


didn’t know what to expect / i don’t know the music of drake & would not recognize it even after the concert \  but mashups are creative & fun to listen to if it works / this one does \ some parts felt like listening to opera \ i also couldn’t help but think of queen’s “bohemian rhapsody” / fun to think that the concert brought together some who knew only Tchaikovsky, some who knew only drake & some who knew of both

eastend mile


chanced upon this really good local band at “rock the block” street festival in squirrel hill <mr. rogers’ neighborhood in pittsburgh> on a beautiful full moon evening \ they remind me of the pop fusion | smooth jazz bands of the 80s / so surprising to me that the band is made up of twentysomethings \ whom i assume have an aversion to whatever their parents appreciated in their youth / & especially smooth jazz <think kenny g, ugh> \ but eastend mile is worth a listen / pretty solid band, solid sax player!
