She has been a vocalist since the age of four, and playing guitar and writing songs for the last ten years. Currently, BeLove is recording a new album and plans to tour the east coast this summer. *DRU - singer/songwriter and also the artist formerly known as Andrew the Impaled A lyrical mad man, this seasoned showman turns musical theatre on its head and slaps it 'round with a side a science and a dash of light hearted syncopated cynicism that will tickle your cockles and bring a smile to even the most jaded of concert goers. Known nationally for his work as Pittsburgh's Premier Pain Proof Clown, this one time side show marvel is now branching out to put his message of heartache and hope into musical form. Don't miss DRU, the artist formerly known as Andrew the Impaled! *Miguel Sague Jr & Miguel Sague III - father and son duets This father son duo have been delighting audiences internationally since before the internet! Originally from San Salvador, Cuba, via Erie, PA and Penn Hills, this Pittsburgh/Cuban sensation works their magic in harmonies, rhythm and song. Armed with guitar, guiro, conga and mesmerizing harmonies in that soft velvet Cuban Spanish that makes audience members weep, you would be remiss to not catch these gentlemen as soon as you can! http://allsaguelatinshows.webs.com/ *David Apocalypse and his Museum of Oddities The Reverend David Apocalypse has travelled nationally with the SubGenius Foundation, Pigface, Circus Ridiculous and most notably with America's last still touring side show "Ward Hall's World of Wonders". He recently moved back to his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA and brought with him his stories and a beautifully bizarre collection of oddities, aka dead stuff in jars... But not just any dead stuff, look on in amazement at his authentic fiji mermaid or double butted duck.... Its Amazing! *Phat Man Dee w/ Carlos Peña (guitarist) Phat Man Dee is a cosmic jazz cabaret vocalist, bandleader, events producer, videographer, poet and part time sideshow marvel.

“Chaibaba at Lava Lounge 04.26.12 chaibaba At the risk of being blunt and rather direct, these fuckers are really good! I'm serious! That was my reaction when they launched into their set. Genuinely pleasantly surprised. And when I say, 'launched', I mean exactly that. Bassist Ketan Bakrania (who also handles vocals and percussion) and drummer Dino Lopreiato Lay down a groove that is smooth, smart, sexy-- everything a good groove should be. But when guitarist Vijay Bakrania starts weaving his patterns of sound, it takes on the effect of exploring space. The band literally paints a picture with this wonderful mix of styles and substance.
