Later this month, Joanna Newsom
will release her new record Divers
, and whats even more exciting (if you're into that kind of thing) is that on Dec. 12, she'll bring her tour to the Carnegie of Homestead Music Hall
($29-49, on sale Friday). If I'm not mistaken, this will be the singer-songwriter-harpist-etc's first appearance in Pittsburgh since her 2006 show at the Warhol.
In slightly odder news, Creed Bratton
— who you may know from The Office, where he also went by "Creed" —will present a night of music and comedy at the Hard Rock Cafe
on Nov. 14 ($15-250, on sale Friday). Bratton was actually a musician before he was an actor (in the 1960s he was a member of the band The Grass Roots), so its actually not quite as strange as it sounds.
will play "In Da Gadda Da Vita" (i assume) at Altar Bar
on Dec. 12 ($23-25, on sale Saturday). Also at Altar Bar: Lil Debbie
on Nov. 4 ($18-20, on sale now); Brain Fallon and the Crowes
Jan. 12 ($22-25, on sale Friday); and Killing Joke
on Feb. 17, 2016 ($20-100, on sale now).
And a few more things:
John Mark Nelson
comes to the Smiling Moose
on Oct. 28 ($10, on sale now).
Mike Why & Brian Fitzy
will be at Club Cafe
on Nov. 25 ($10-15, on sale Friday)
play at the Rex on Nov. 27 ($12-15, on sale now).
And Holly Bowling
plays the music of Phish at the Pittsburgh Winery
on Nov. 12 ($15, on sale now).
