Lyndsey Smith & Soul Distribution.

Theater Square Garage Roof
July 29
5 p.m.

As kids, we loved getting creative with paper plates, macaroni, and glitter at arts and crafts camps, but this summer, it’s time for Arts & Drafts.

Rock out on a scenic downtown rooftop—with the city’s stunning skyline as your selfie backdrop—with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust event, Arts & Drafts.

Ushering in the steamy dog days of summer, the celebratory night will feature some of summer’s best rewards—live outdoor music, games and activities, ice cream, and local libations.

Keeping the groove going strong high up above the city streets will be a high-energy live performance by the soul, R&B and dance band, Lyndsey Smith & Soul Distribution. Headed up by prolific vocalist Lyndsey Smith, the ensemble also features Stacey Price, (back-up vocals), Markila Brown (back-up vocals), James Rushin (keyboards), Spencer Geer (guitar), Ben Sherman (guitar), Luke Daller (bass), Jules Coulson (drums), Ross Antonich (percussion), Collin Binko (saxophone), and Joe Badaczewski (trumpet).


When you’re ready for a cool down, partake in some cool and sweet treats from Dream Cream Ice Cream and sample some refreshing summery brews.

The rooftop revelry will also include high-energy Brazilian drumming performances by Timbeleza, outdoor games and mini art activities, a real-time, live art installation created by Pittsburgh-based muralist Jeremy Raymer, appetizers, and a cash bar

Open to ages 21+.
