Something For Everyone

Most of you probably know that I was born and raised in Pittsburgh and now live in Northern Virginia. Therefore, I tend to write about subjects related to both Western Pennsylvania and the Washington DC area. Today, I'm writing about both.

Northern Virginia

I wrote about the 2015 Celebrate Fairfax headliners a few weeks ago. Since that time, Bush had to cancel meaning that I need to update that post. While I'd really like to blame Gwen Stefani, I can't. I mean, Gwen Stefani is just so cool. I'll blame Gavin Rossdale instead.

Instead of Bush, Kongos will perform on the Friday night of the festival. While you may not be familiar with the band, you probably know this song.

Kongos is a bit of a departure for Celebrate Fairfax. The festival's headliners are generally more established, so it's nice to see an up-and-coming act. I hope that translates to a nice audience as it seems like Kongos put on a good show.

The other Celebrate Fairfax news is that you can buy Super Early Bird tickets through TODAY for only $8. Starting tomorrow, tickets will go up to $10 which is still an extremely great deal for a concert/festival. I've definitely paid more than $10 for a "service charge" before.


This is from the Post-Gazette's Tuned In. Here's your chance to be an extra in the Cinemax show Banshee.

So does this mean that townspeople, press types and police department staff aren't heavily tattooed, Goth/Punk types and Men with shaved heads?
