“With an unwavering focus on songwriting, recording, touring, and press promotions, Sleepy Hahas has recorded two EPs and two full length LPs, working with widely acclaimed producers and engineers for each.”

Any thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
I lived in Pittsburgh for 2 years while attending Duquense University from 2008 – early 2010. It basically reminded me of a bigger, more put together version of our hometown of Buffalo, and I loved my stay there. I got to see many amazing shows, including the Melvins, and Arctic Monkeys play to 200 people right after “Humbug” came out.
Thanks, Pat. Glad you survived the insane snow up there to make it down tonight. Have a great show.
