Little Band of Sailors and Thank You Rosekind

Two artist performance groups, longtime friends and collaborators Little Band of Sailors and Thank You Rosekind join forces once again to embark on a summer musical tour. New York based Rachel Mason (aka Little Band of Sailors) has been described as "Marvelously Strange" by the Village Voice (Jerry Salz) and "Alice Cooper meets Carol King in another dimension" (Chris Carlone of Borts Minorts) . Mason will perform songs from the recently released "Code Flight," a collection of music based on her personal experience as a recreational therapist in New York. Visit website at

Philadelphia-based group Thank You Rosekind (Michael G. Bauer and Joel Chartkoff) will perform selections from their anticipated second album of dreamy electro-pop, "Attention Intention!’". TYR expands upon their sentiments of gratitude with their motivational lyrics, cathartic chord progressions and celebratory dance beats. Accompanying live music performances is "Getting Closer" a motivationally based Powerpoint presentation aimed to explore and invite interpersonal connection. More information at


The Pittsburgh Art Blog

The Pittsburgh Art 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

the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh artist advocate rick byerly.
