The New Bohemian

January 25
3 – 8 p.m.

Everyone missing the flowers, festivities and carefree setting created by Weather Permitting‘s summer concerts at Shadyside Nursery will rejoice now that the live music series is launching a winter edition.

The brainchild of Bloomfield-based DJ, event producer, designer and dad Pete Spynda—who’s also the force behind popular local events such as Pandemic and the Pittonkatonk Brass Festival—Winter Weather Permitting is taking its show on the road to The New Bohemian. Housed within a former Czech Catholic built in 1900, the distinctive and cozy space sits adjacent to the 16th Street Bridge along the Allegheny River on Pittsburgh’s historic Northside.

For its inaugural concert, Winter Weather Permitting welcomes a diverse lineup featuring countrified folk-punk band The Working Poor, ska group The Pressure and blues rockers Charlie Hustle & the Grifters.

Like its popular fair-weather cousin, the new indoor edition offers a unique creative space for music fans to gather and mingle, warm up with live local music, food and drink, and even let the kids run around and play games in a safe space that’s open and accessible to all ages.

Hand-on activities for all ages will be led by Little House Big Art. Grab dinner from the Steer and Wheel and Lomito food trucks, enjoy tasty desserts from Leona’s Ice Cream Sandwiches and wash it all down with local craft beer provided by Rock Bottom Brewery.

Cost: $10 for adults; free for kids. Space is limited. Doors open at 3 p.m. The New Bohemian is BYOB.

On Sunday, February 8th, Winter Weather Permitting will welcome The Red Western, Vira Samba and Union Rye.
