If you know me, you know one of my very favorite things about Pittsburgh is the annual Three Rivers Arts Festival.
If you know me a little better, you know that my very favorite thing about the arts festival is the series of free, nightly concerts, which return to the point this year.
As I do most years, I look at the schedule and think: OK. Gonna be spending a lot of time down there for the next 10 days. We’re starting tonight, with an official tweetup for the Black Keys show at 8. And while I would love to see Medeski, Martin and Wood on Saturday, I think Game Five of the Stanley Cup finals is going to win out.
But if you’re up for taking in a show, here’s what I have planned for the rest of the festival. Because of work obligations and hockey playoffs, this is subject to change.
- Tonight: The Black Keys
- Tuesday: Donora
- Wednesday: Toubab Krewe
- Thursday: Booker T
- Friday: Robert Randolph and the Family Band
