CROSSPOLYNATION: Pittsburgh Mash-Up Music Festival

JULY 7, 2012 at Shadow Lounge will be the scene for an exciting and unique music event called CROSSPOLYNATION: Pittsburgh Mash-Up Music Festival. The event will pair some of Pittsburgh’s best live bands with some of the hottest MC’s and DJ’s in town. Each pairing of artists will be collaborating on sets, “mashing up” each other’s music.

Inspired by the Beautiful Noise events formerly hosted at Brillobox which combined bands with spoken word artists for improvisational sets, David Neuhart, Dream Job’s percussionist has organized CROSSPOLYNATION with the initiative to combine and cross-pollinate scenes and styles, and to encourage collaboration and solidarity across the landscape of the Pittsburgh music scene. The lineup consists of:

  •  Lovebettie feat. Commonwealth Family
  • Triggers feat. Keeb$
  • Dream Job feat. Tracksploitation
  • School Of Athens feat. DJ Scott Courtney
  • Mega Def feat. Christiane D.
  • Long Time Darlings feat. Yah Lioness Borne

The event kicks off at 10pm and tickets are $8. The event is sponsored by Iron City Beer, who will be on hand with specials and promotions.
