We love it when 2 of our favorite passions meet on the same night. Gonna watch some pucks early...then heading over to Gooskis for some rawkin good times with a few local Pittsurgh bands.
Neighbours will be there. We first saw Neighbours earlier this year when they opened up for Mike Watt at the Brillbox, and we digged it. We later met their bass player Joe, who also plays with Amoeba Knievel. I believe he also plays in one of the other bands playing, City Steps.
Headlining will be The Love Letters. Word on the streets is the show starts at 10:00-ish, and the Love Letters will be hitting the stage @ midnight. We love our Pittsburgh bands, and love it even more when they are at Gooskis. Support local music, drink a beer, and be happy tonight.

Tonight at the Warhol - a 7:00 screening of an original print of 1984's Revenge Of the Nerds. The coolest part: Curtis Armstrong (aka: "Booger") will be there to introduce the film and do a Q & A afterwards.
Easily my favorite scene from the film, a speech I like to use on special occasions...

A lot of talk in Pittsburgh today as to whether or not this is still a rivalry. The Sid vs. Ovie debate is dead in the water. Actually, Pascal Dupuis (7g 13a) vs. Ovechkin (8g 10a) may be the newer and more fair debate.
That said, this is still a rivalry between the 2 organizations. And we always get jackt for it. The hiring of that dick Dale Hunter should even make it more interesting.
No Tanger again. Simon Despres gets the big club call up. Let's do it.
