Pittsburgh band Crisis Car will reunite for one night, bringing their amalgamation of sound back to the musical soul of Pittsburgh. Mike and Frank Speranzo (members of band Drowning Clowns) and Korel Tunador (Goo Goo Dolls multi-instrumentalist and vocalist) will be serving up a blend of rock, alternative, jazz, folk and country reminiscent of Frank Zappa and Phish. Lyrical diversion and pulsing melody make Crisis Car a true representation of Pittsburgh Americana.
State College's Brewer's Row takes their name from an attic practice space just steps from a neighboring Pittsburgh brewery. Best known for their repertoire of bittersweet melodies bound by layered choruses, members Corry Drake, Leah Hohman-Esser, Mark Hohman, Nicholas Hohman, and Nick Conti have created a sound for Brewer's Row described as "Rustbelt Americana."

The Redlines are a 4-piece American Rock & Roll band out of the Butler and Allegheny, and Beaver County area consisting of Brian Seese, Scott Klimcheck, Jason Lizzi, and Tony Vinski. Their goal is to blend the basics and essentials of early rock & roll music using elements of rock & roll, soul, country, blues and others. A general love of music hopes to yield songs with punk rock fury, to classic rocks sounds, to blues tinged reggae, to soulful funky rock to sounds of early country with a little bit of this and that mixed in.

Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter, Nick Africano's, new album, "The Butterfly Bull," is a story about collaborations and the exploration of contradictions. The blues-meets-soul instrumentation are a perfect fit for Africano's own rugged vocals which are sometimes spoken as much as sung, in a Waits meets Dylan style.
