Mingus Festival Weekend – James Street Gastropub – Jan 3-5, 2014, Pittsburgh

Apparently, this is happening this weekend at James Street Gastropub and Speakeasy in the North Side.  I guess I’ve been out of the loop because this completely came out of nowhere.  Thanks to Ben Opie and his email updates, I now know about this and really hope to make it down for at least 1 night, specifically Saturday.

I saw OPEK a few years ago at Club Cafe when they did a split show of works by Miles and Mingus.  Needless to say, it was incredible and I really look forward to seeing some of that Mingus material revisited on Saturday. This is HIGHLY recommended.
