Hey--

So I've got an Irish Rock band called Potato Famine (a la Pogues, Tossers, little bit of Gaelic storm and Flogging Molly influence) that might be trying to come to Pittsburgh for the week of St. Paddy's day. That's March 12-18th. Anyone know someone we can talk to who could hook us up with shows? We're trying to get one or two gigs lined up asap, so that we know that driving down won't be a bust.

So yeah--got a favorite bar? Good club that might be looking for St. Patrick's day entertainment? Anything would be great.

Thanks all,

Jeff Gardner/Potato Famine

Pittsburgh's first ever Santarchy will be held on December 10th! Dress up as Santa, an elf, reindeer, Mrs. Claus or in any other themed costume (variations like Evil Santa or Naughty Mrs. Claus are OK) and roam around Pittsburgh as part of the pack! Expect bar-hopping, caroling, random craziness and debauchery. For more info, visit:

Mood: mischievous

We share a love of cultural noise: belief systems, aesthetics, and ways of living striking a note of discord against prevailing harmonies.

We gather together in cities around the world to celebrate and emulate aesthetic lumpiness and quixotic idiosyncrasies wherever they can be found.

We are united in the pursuit of experiences beyond the pale of mainstream society through subversion, pranks, art, fringe explorations and meaningless madness.

We are the Pittsburgh Cacophony Society, and you may already be a member.

Subject:New Play Circle
Security:Public

[[excerpted from an email indirectly from Julie Costa-Malcom <julzlady@gmail.com>]]


Are you a playwright (or have you ever wanted to try it)? Are you interested in new plays? Do you like hanging out with other theatre people and talking about theatre?

AT RISE: Two graduate student playwrights, going about the business of being graduate students, in their office.

Mike: So...have you spent any more time with the girls at the Triangle Strike*?
Julie: I have been ignoring them for quite a while, actually. I have a really hard time writing when there's no one reading.
Mike: I'm familiar with that.
Julie: I do so much better when I have real people to read things out loud and give me feedback on it.
Mike: I think a lot of us have that experience.
Julie: You know what would be cool? If we could get together like, once a month or something, and not just playwrights, but actors and other clever people. And we could read each other's work and give feedback and ideas and stuff. That would be cool.
Mike: Do you think we're that smart?
Julie: I think we could be. Let's ask people to do it.

(* Obscure reference to a play Julie was working on almost 2 years ago)

So...we'd like to start a "plays in process circle." Playwrights can bring things they're working on, or just come and listen and provide feedback to/take inspiration from the works-in-progress of other
playwrights. Actors can get to test their ranges by playing any number of characters in any number of strange situations. Interested observers can come for the brilliant company. Everyone can eat pasta
and snacks in my living room and try to ignore the regular interruptions of a 4-year-old and a 7-year-old.

Sound like fun?
We think so.

The First Gathering: Sunday Novemeber 13, 5:00 pm, Julie Costa-Malcolm's house in Shadyside.

Please try to let me know via email if you're interested in coming, so I can be sure I have enough food and space. :-) If you're a playwright, it would be cool to know a couple of days ahead of time if you plan to bring something and, if so, how many readers you'll need, so I can recruit extra readers if we're likely to need any.


[[There you have it. Email Julie for more information <julzlady@gmail.com>]]

Hey all! I'm doing publicity for a neat show called "Mrs. Shakespeare." It's a one woman show about the life and times of Shakespeare's wife, Anne Hathaway. At the end of the month, "Mrs. Shakespeare" will premiere in its new venue, the English Nationality Room at the University of Pittsburgh!
