Every day email pours in for thrilling concert tours.
Among today's entries: Leonard Cohen's first tour in 15 years and the punk rock billing of Rise Against/Rancid.
Both look great. Neither is coming to Pittsburgh - of course.
In our vicinty, Cohen is doing Chicago, Detroit, Columbia, MD, Philadelphia, New York and Boston.
Rise Against/Rancid is doing Cleveland, Cincinnati, Detroit, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Boston and... Buffalo!
There's no reason why these tours shouldn't be coming to Pittsburgh. Cohen could play Carnegie Music Hall, one of them; and Rise Against/Rancid could do the back-again tent at Station Square.
Now, on the bright side. We are getting TV on the Radio at Mr. Small's on May 11. Yay.
