It was a somber, rainy one in Pittsburgh this weekend. Here’s a brief recap:
After the news of Mac Miller’s death on Fri. Sept. 7, Pittsburghers remembered the local rapper on social media.





Pittburghers gathered in Frick Park to remember Mac Miller.



There will be a memorial for Mac on Tue., Sept. 11 at Blue Slide Park.
Nationally, artists far and wide remembered Mac for his music, contagious personality, and generosity.


In lighter news, fans gathered at KeyBank Pavilion for the Outlaw Music Festival on Fri., Sept. 7 to see the likes of Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Sturgill Simpson, and not least, Van Morrison, who made his first appearance in Pittsburgh since 1973.



Since it didn’t stop raining all weekend, the Pittsburgh Irish Festival was canceled on Sunday. But, Pittsburghers were able to get into the Irish spirit on Saturday before the rain became too much.


Ja Rule was set to perform at the opening of Foxtail (formerly Diesel) Friday night. He didn’t start his performance until two hours after his set start time, breaking the promise made in his classic Ashanti collab “Always on Time.”



National

Drake and Meek Mill ended their longstanding feud with a surprise on-stage performance together at Drake’s Boston show on Saturday.




While one feud was ending, another came to a head. Nicki Minaj and Cardi B got into a physical altercation at the Harper's Bazaar Icons party for New York Fashion Week.



And lastly, Paramore decided to retire its song, “Misery Business” and played the track for the last time in Nashville on Friday.
