As a music blogger, I get a ton of emails from publicists asking to check out their band. Last year, a group from Ireland called Stand popped up on my radar and although I couldn’t make the gig, they were cool enough to send me some CD’s anyway. Fast forward to this year and I find out that they are playing Pittsburgh again with two favorite local bands to boot. It didn’t hurt that I actually dug the music they gave so it was a win-win for me. Word is they might be back in the fall and I’ll surely let you know if that happens.
