"candy dreams of SPACEMEN" by Corey LeChat
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
24 Aug 2008


Corey LeChat's head is not just in the clouds, it’s in the stratosphere, mesosphere, through the thermosphere and exosphere and toward galaxies and dimensions far beyond.
With his lens trained on rocket ships and astronauts, Corey's latest photographic series launches the viewer on a journey through space and time.
The casual view captures unbelievable things, like attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion or even C-beams glittering in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.
Thankfully these moments are not lost in time, but preserved for the entire cosmos to see (and then perhaps to also dream of spacemen).
Corey LeChat's latest series of 35 mm color photographs materializes at
Moxie Dada, August 9 through 30.
1416 ARCH STREET / PITTSBURGH PA 15212 / PLANET EARTH
The opening reception, to be held Saturday, August 9 from 6-9 pm, features music from out of this world including an original theramin score composed and performed by the artist.
Space snacks and Tang will be provided for attendees.

24 Aug 2008
Pittsburgh's best young, up and coming bands will be showcased on the night of August 24 at Saddle Ridge Saloon in Station Square for the Pabst Blue Ribbon - Gorilla Productions Battle of the Bands regional finals. Preliminary rounds have been held all summer and the best musicians with the most sprawling fanbases have been selected to play in the finals for the chance to win a $25,000 recording deal. The semi-final rounds that I attended about 3 weeks ago were fantastic. The music was awesome, the fans were great, and the atmosphere of the bar (it was my first time at Saddle Ridge) was tremendous. Bands from all over the region have played in this show and it is now down to the cream of the crop. If you are interested in catching some of Pittsburgh's newest and, until now, mostly undiscovered rising stars, you are going to want to check out this great all ages show.

GLORIOUS!
Comedy | Written by Peter Quilter
August 19 - August 31

The true story of Florence Foster Jenkins, the worst singer in the world.

Step back in time to New York in the 1940s. At the time, the city was a haven for eccentric characters struggling to make their mark. One New York socialite and aspiring opera singer, Florence Foster-Jenkins, became an immensely popular musical performer through the sheer strength of her personality, the devoted support of her adoring friends, and the unabashed self-confidence about the beauty of her stupendously horrendous singing voice. The play follows Foster-Jenkins from charity recitals and extravagant balls all the way to Carnegie Hall.
