You be the judge!

There Was a Time.jpg

We've decided to give you, as a Christmas present, an early opportunity to listen to one of the tracks from There Was a Time We Were Kids, in its entirety, before the album release. We've narrowed it down to three - Jimmy, Twentysomething, and Better Way - but we haven't been able to decide on which one, so we'd like you to decide for us. To help you decide, we've added three 45-second snippets to this site's Music page. To vote, just add your comment to this blog entry (See where it says "Comment" below?) telling us which of the three you'd like to hear.

CD Release!

We are delighted to announce to you the release of Brewer's Row's second full length album, There Was a Time We Were Kids, Saturday, January 9th, 2016, at 9:00, at Howlers Coyote Cafe in Bloomfield.

Joining us will be our good friend Paul Tabachneck ( We opened for Paul at Mr. Smalls when he released his terrific album, Two People Made This Mess, and now he's returning the favor. (Actually, he will have been doing us the favor on both occasions.)

November 6th - Raw Draw!

RawDraw is a high-impact drawing event where over 40 local artists create original drawings before your eyes in two hour-long sessions to be silently auctioned off at the end of the night. Proceeds from the event provide direct support to programming at the North Side's Neu Kirche Contemporary Art Center.

Experience art in the making, live local music (That would be us!), and great food, all for just $10!

Back to the Barrelhouse!

Friday, October 2nd, Brewer's Row returns to the Wigle Whiskey Barrelhouse and Whiskey Garden, where we opened the season back in May. If you were there, you know it was a hell of a good time. October's event is part of a weekend-long celebration called "Next 3 Days in Troy Hill". Next 3 Days is an event series created by the Urban Redevelopment Authority, the Office of the Mayor of Pittsburgh and NEXTpittsburgh ( in order to shine a light on the many charming and unique Pittsburgh neighborhoods that make our city so great.

A $25 ticket includes two signature drinks from Wigle and delicious food from Troy Hill spots "Scratch" and "Pear & the Pickle Café and Market". The Wigle Barrelhouse is at 1055 Spring Garden Avenue in Spring Garden (15212). Tickets are available at

Deutschtown Festival Assignment!

We got our assignment for the Deutschtown Music Festival, and we're very happy with it. (They're calling it "tentative", but the festival has published the information, so so will we.) We will be at Arnold's Tea at 3:00. It's an all-ages venue, it's free, and there's lots, lots more to take in, before and after. Arnold's Tea is at 502 East Ohio Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15212.

The Festival is on Saturday, July 11th, and runs from noon or so until late night. There are twenty-four venues and over a hundred bands.
