---PERFORMANCES!


Uke and Tuba

--- Uke & Tuba are Pittsburgh's premiere ukulele/tuba band with dancers and an accordion. Their hilarious stage show explores the common ground between a punk show, performance art, and karaoke night. Like a radio station that can't make up its mind, they "play hits from the 70's, 80's, 90's and today." Past performances include a Girl Scouts convention, Andy Warhol's grave, a wedding, and the One Nation Under a Uke festival in Philadelphia. Visit www.ukeandtuba.com

The Pittsburgh Art Blog

pittsburgh galleries is reborn anew as The Pittsburgh Art Blog. the blog features selected pittsburgh artists and upcoming exhibits with photos from the artists and galleries. since the major press outlets do not go beyond a directory listing of exhibits, blogs are needed to promote pittsburgh artists and their work. the blog also calls attention to the inferiority complex of pittsburgh art and how it's perpetuated by the major players in town. Started on August 20, 2007.pittsburgh area galleries and art venues are listed at the sister site www.PghGalleries.com.the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh art advocate rick byerly, www.RickByerly.com.
