Show Review – Bleached & No Parents at The Loving Touch April 2016

April 27, 2016 by

Comments Off

With the announcement last Thursday of Prince’s death it was certainly a day marked with sadness and memories of the exceptional artist. But, moreover,  with an announcement as heavy as this one, it was a day to be social. To get lost in a crowd with the aid of music blaring loud enough to block the mind from misery and stimulate the feet. Bleached along with No Parents brought all this and more to the Loving Touch with a high energy performance of raw, melodic punk.
No Parents

No Parents from California kicked the show off with a batch of fast punk that may not have left much a of mark on the early, subdued crowd but it was still a fun enough start for things to come.

As the crowd multiplied, Bleached took the stage with a fury of sweet and sassy guitar, bass and drums. Pulling most the songs from their latest album “Welcome the Worms,” Bleached played with a wild abandon that had the singer and bass player joining the crowd for a dance and careening across the stage oblivious to cords and mic stands. While their songs have the rawness of punk, they are also laced with a syrupy pop goodness. Standout moments from their set included a joyous cover of the Ramones “Today Your Love, Tomorrow the world” and their own “Sour Candy.”
Bleached 4-21-2016

I won’t lie, it took some extra energy for me to make it out to the show, but Bleached easily repaid it back with dividends.

Thrival Innovation + Music Festival – Another festival worth a road trip!

Thrival Innovation + Music Festival Showcases Pittsburgh’s Creative and Tech Boom September 20-24, 2016.

First Music Lineup: CHVRCHES, Thievery Corporation, Metric, Lettuce, and more.

Besides making the trek out to Moogfest in a couple weeks, I've also added the Thrival Innovation  + Music Festival to my MCB road trippin' experiences for 2016. 
Launched in 2013 by Pittsburgh-based nonprofit Thrill Mill, Inc., Pittsburgh’s Thrival Innovation + Music Festival is an annual week long event that showcases the former industrial juggernaut’s resurgence as a dynamic tech and creative hub.

Running September 20-24, the festival features multiple days of immersive, innovation-focused programming, capped by a diverse two-day outdoor live music experience with world renowned talent. Thrival musical headliners include CHVRCHESThievery Corporation,Metric, and Lettuce with additional acts to be announced. Former headliners include Panic! At the Disco, RJD2, Raekwon and Ghostface Killah, Wale, Moby, Portugal. The Man, and more.

Thrival Innovation programs will explore three themes: AuthentiCityThe Ripple Effect, andLost and Found.

AuthentiCIty speaks to the complexities of Pittsburgh’s rising status as one of the most livable cities in the U.S., as well as America’s top food town and other accolades.

Thrival executive producer, Dan Law, explains, “Recently, Pittsburgh finds itself on a number of ‘top’ lists, but so much of our city remains undiscovered to a broader audience. The festival offers that unique opportunity to witness why Pittsburgh is a modern comeback story.”

The city’s tech boom has been a driving force in its comeback narrative attracting industry stalwarts like GoogleAppleFacebook, and Uber. However, Thrival’s Ripple Effect theme also explores the smaller ideas that eventually lead to big impacts emerging outside of the tech giants’ umbrellas — particularly within the realm of startups and entrepreneurship.

The festival’s third theme, Lost and Found is an examination of rediscovered industries and skill sets that are shaping our modern economy — a theme embodied by the landmark venue anchoring the weekend music experience, the Carrie Furnaces. This national historic landmark was once a part of the historic Homestead Steel Works.
For limited time tickets for the music festival early bird tickets are only $49, get them here!
