Awesome weekend in Pittsburgh. The weather was warm and sunny for the most part, really the first weekend where I didn’t have to don a jacket. Hit up the Ramen Bar before a really fun Lazercrunk on Friday, made Curry Cauliflower for the DIY Indian Food potluck, checked out Deadbeat and Container at the Cruze bar, and got to chill super hard outside on Sunday.
Here’s what’s up this week.
Tues April 15th
An unknown legend from Helleville, Illinois, Satan’s God has been creating solo bass noise/experimental/black metal for over 20 years. The solo act of Igor Von de Heilichtson III, Satan’s God has released over 21 albums, almost exclusively on cassette, with no authorized online presence, and has toured nearly the entire continental United States.
“Satan’s God has always been a D.I.Y underground act with no affiliations with anything but its own dementia.”
