Not sure what to do this weekend? Well, lucky for us, the local music community has blessed Pittsburgh with an abundance of new releases and accompanying release shows. So whether you'd rather stay in and enjoy some new tunes or go out and experience the music live, there's no storage of fresh sounds in the 'Burgh.

Release Shows

Slugss - "Sun Sign"
Does this song remind you of something you listened to while making out with your high school crush? According to Slugss Facebook page, that's the goal. It reads: "Trying to sing the songs that people hooked up to in high school, or something."

Off of Slugss' upcoming second album, reminisce tonight when the band holds a release show for the single at Spirit. Joining the band is BBGuns, Ideas for Advertisements, and DJ Huck Finn of Second Skin.
