Cobra Starship, Jamie Lynn Spears to headline Light Up Night

Written by Scott Mervis on .

cobraLight Up Night won't have any shortage of lively with NYC dance-pop band Cobra Starship as the headliner on Nov. 21.

The band, best known for the songs

best known for the songs "Good Girls Go Bad" and "You Make Me Feel ...," had its biggest showcase here at the Warped Tour in July 2008. At the time, we wrote, "the New York City dance band's set was a blast and a colorful departure from the usual Warped grind ..."

In 2011, Cobra had Mac Miller as special guest on the track "Middle Finger," so a cameo by the Pittsburgh rapper isn't out of the question if he's in town.

Macy's, which always goes for something poppy, will have Jamie Lynn Spears on the stage on Smithfield Street. Britney's sister, who starred in the Nick show "Zoey 101," released her country debut EP, "The Journey," in May, but it has yet to take with country radio.

Rounding out the lineup will be local faves Joe Grushecky, Billy Price, Donora and Grand Piano.

Here are the main stages:

6:00 P.M. Grand Piano

Penguins

-The Post-Gazette's recap from last night's game. “To come in here against a really good team is big for us. We have to be happy with this win.” - Paul Martin.

-The Minneapolis Star Tribune's recap. Wild forward Zach Parise left the game in the second period due to an "upper-body" injury.

-The St. Paul (Minn.) Pioneer Press' recap. "We came out flat and we thought we just had to show up to get the win, and that's obviously not what happened." - Wild defenseman Ryan Suter.

-The Associated Press' recap. "I didn't feel too sharp. Bunch of rebounds I wasn't too happy with, bunch of small things, but it's just nice to get the win." - Thomas Greiss (above, with Simon Despres).

-Highlights:

-Mike Lange's goal calls.

-Simon Despres vs. Minnesota's Kyle Brodziak:

-Mike Johnston speaks:

-The Penguins gave Marc-Andre Fleury the night off.

-Olli Maatta underwent surgery to remove a tumor from his thyroid gland.
