Genticorum Friday, January 23, 2009 Genticorum are fast becoming one of the most sought-after proponents of Québécois musical culture, firmly rooted in the soil of their native land. The energetic and original traditional “power trio” also incorporates the dynamism of today's North American and European folk cultures in their music. Weaving wooden flute, fiddle, acoustic guitar, jaw harp, bass, and foot percussion with strong vocal harmonies, they offer a blend of traditional songs and tunes as well as original compositions. Their distinctive sound, sense of humor, and stage presence make them a supreme crowd pleaser.

Squonk Opera Saturday, April 18, 2009 Squonk Opera created its first show in a gritty Pittsburgh junkyard with roaring choreographed cranes and earthmovers over a decade ago. A flexible, interdisciplinary group of artists led by collaborators Jackie Dempsey and Steve O'Hearn, Squonk is interested in theater created from sound and image, inspired by a rust-belt love of spectacle and humor. Shady Side Academy: The Opera promises to be part meta-civic celebration, part heartfelt toast, part punk-vaudevillian roast.
