Nevada Color at Studio X on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 in Pittsburgh, PA.

One of the greatest aspects of being a music fan in Pittsburgh is the endless opportunities to see local bands play their music in different settings. Radio station 105.9 The X has been putting on a monthly Studio X showcase for bands and broadcasting/archiving the set at a later time. This particular show will be aired on the radio tomorrow for Mother’s Day at 8:30 pm. I love what Nevada Color are doing. I actually shot their second ever gig and watching them grow and mature as performers is awesome.

I have seen the Bastard Bearded Irishmen a few times before Thursday night when I sauntered a few blocks from my crib to catch an intimate performance at the monthly Studio X takeover at 105.9 The X in Greentree. These guys are really awesome in that frontman Jimmy is absolutely mesmerizing as he and the fantastic band barrel through their rock take on traditional Celtic party songs. Just a whole hell of a lot of fun. Their annual St. Patrick’s Day gigs at The Rex are becoming legendary and for good reason. Don’t miss out on this party next week.
