Friday, March 3rd, Brewer's Row opens its 2017 season, headlining at the Funhouse at Mr. Smalls! Helping us out (and well worth the price of admission themselves) are our good friend, Pittsburgh ex-pat Paul Tabachneck, and Bill and Mike from the legendary slacker-rock collective, Akrasia.
We decided a week before the deadline to enter NPR's Tiny Desk Contest, so Leah, Nicholas, Jon and Mark set up shop in Leah's living room one evening and banged out five or six takes of Nicholas's "It's Funny". Two made the short list, and we posted them on our YouTube channel. Above is the one we chose to submit. You can see the runner-up here.
Check out the lyrics to "It's Funny" here.
An amazing lineup - Dublin's Mark Dignam, New York's Nick Africano, and Brewer's Row, in the fabulously intimate setting of the James Street Gastropub's speakeasy. It's a Wednesday, yes, but we'll get you home before Colbert. This one will be well worth it.
A fundraiser for St. Paul's Nursery School in Mount Lebanon, with music by Brewer's Row, food from Las Chicas Tacos and Franktuary, beer from Insurrection and East End Brewing, raffle and live auction.

Join us on Saturday, September 10th at 7:00 pm as we team up with host Ben Shannon and good friend Mark Dignam for a very special family-friendly night of music under the stars, with the sound of trains and traffic in the distance. Bring your own bug spray and chair, for a suggested donation of $10-$20.
This year's Rock All Night Tour has us back for an afternoon set at Nied's Hotel, in upriver Lawrenceville. We're on at 4:00, immediately following Slim Forsythe's New Payday Loners.

Come to a real Northside block party benefitting the Spring Garden Club, a group dedicated to making a great neighborhood even greater.

Here's some exciting news. Each day next week, beginning on Monday March 21st, WYEP (91.3 FM in Pittsburgh) will air a short spot as part of their "Local 913" program, featuring an interview of our Nicholas by Cindy Howes followed by the song "In the Night" from our album, There Was a Time We were Kids.

In case you're not near a radio any of those times (or in case you want to listen to it over and over, like some of us might) you'll also be able to listen via their website after 9:30 Monday morning.
When you've heard it, you just might want to let the nice folks there know just how much you like hearing your favorite band on their radio station. (That applies even if your favorite band isn't the same as mine!) That's the only way they'll know that it makes a difference to you.
