Midday Toastmasters Meeting
Calendar: Local Calendar

16 Apr 2008
At Toastmasters, members learn by speaking to groups and working with others in a supportive environment. A typical Toastmasters club is made up of 10 to 30 people who meet once a week for about an hour. Each meeting gives everyone an opportunity to practice conducting meetings, giving impromptu speeches, presenting prepared speeches, and offering constructive evaluation. We meet on the University Of Pittsburgh's campus in L-5 Clapp Hall (Lowy Room), on the corner of Fifth and Tennyson Avenue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, across from the Cathedral of Learning. We meet from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. every Wednesday of each month.

MIXED UP WEDNESDAYS
Calendar: Local Calendar

16 Apr 2008
"Mixed up Wednesdays" takes place each Wednesday night at Lava Lounge located at 2204 East Carson Street on Pittsburgh's South Side. Resident DJ Ian Friend and special guests Adammmm and Sasqautch of MFPA fame spin classic and current underground dance music, old skool hip hop, 80's new wave and much more. The event runs from 10p.m. to 2a.m. with no cover, drink specials and 50 wings from the Double Wide Grill.
It's hard not get into the groove with the likes of Brazil's own CSS & Bonde Do Role blasting through the speakers. The dj's could at that point twist and turn you directly to france by spinning some of their current underground craze by the likes of Yelle, Ca$hmere or SebastiAn.
It's hard to know where else they will take you with the every growing collection of music and tracks that were purchased and debuted mere hours before the start of the event. One thing is for sure: Mixed Up Wednesdays is not for the faint heart but the party animals.

COYOTE RUN at Slippery Rock University
Calendar: Local Calendar

16 Apr 2008
For immediate release:


CELTIC POWERHOUSE, COYOTE RUN, WILL BRING THEIR HIGH ENERGY “NEW CELTIC ALTERNATIVE” STYLINGS TO SLIPPERY ROCK UNIVERSITY ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 16. THE PERFORMANCE BEGINS AT 6:00PM. THIS IS A FREE EVENT.


Inspired by the rich heritages of Celtic, Rock, Appalachian, and Maritime traditions,
Coyote Run’s unique and rich storytelling style is a high octane blend of fine literature, and alternative rock in a kilt. Coyote Run will be performing one evening only on the Quad in front of Bailey Library as part of the Kaleidoscope Arts Festival. The band headlines and performs in major Celtic festivals, clubs, pubs and concert halls throughout the United States. They have also toured Ireland and Scotland.


Places, the band's newest release, is a double disc set with a CD and DVD. The CD is a live concert recording recorded both in their hometown of Williamsburg, Virginia and at Revolution Hall in Troy, New York. On this album, original songs with a strong, driving rock feel, are interwoven with traditional and rich poetic lyrics. Gene Shay of Philadelphia’s WXPN commented after hearing Coyote Run that the band represented the “take no prisoners approach to Celtic music.” This album is the best offering from this band to date and is not to be missed!

Art Ketchum of the magazine Celtic Beat, writes that “Listening to Coyote Run makes me think of a large...library, where every book you open gives you a view of something fascinating.” The music from this album takes a step further down the literate road that Ketchum referenced in his review. In this album, Doersch’s lyrics live side by side with William Shakespeare, Robert Louis Stevenson and more.

Their CDs, Places, Coyote Run Pleads the Fifth, Tend the Fire, Coyote Run, Full Throttle Celtic, and Don’t Hold Back are currently available through their website (www.coyoterun.com) and through a variety of internet retailers including amazon.com, the iTunes music store, and barnesandnoble.com.


Coyote Run is David Doersch, Catherine Hauke, Doug Bischoff, Michael Kazalski, and Zachary Williamson. The band’s webpage has photos, upcoming dates and bio information on the band members. You can find their websites at: www.coyoterun.com and myspace.com/coyoterunband.

Starring Pittsburgh’s own Tim Hartman and Marcus Stevens. Adult Content
