Dawn rises over the Cuyahoga.
I was in town for the Pittsburgh Indie Expo, held on the beautiful top floor of a renovated warehouse. I was excited to be back in PGH, because I've made a few pretty good friends there, and, in the days leading up to the show I was able to convince Dave Kiersh, one of my favorite artists, to make the trip out from Long Island. And it's always great to see him.
The show went well. There's a strong but steady creative vibe in Pittsburgh that I really like. It's like half east coast, half midwestern. Which is a pretty cool combo.
