“picking out all the cashews (tru rock n roll moves)”

  • Favorite thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
  • Visitors to Pittsburgh often say how polite and genuine the people are, and I think it’s true, especially in regards to the people involved in the music scene. It’s becoming more and more vibrant each day, and it helps that those who are setting up shows and making music are really awesome.

Thanks, guys. It’s funny, I have always heard from out-of-towners how nice people who live here are.
