CeeLo Green in Concert at Jergel’s; Associated Artists 107th Annual Exhibition Continues at the Westmoreland (Wed., 12/11/19)

1) CeeLo Green is on his Holiday Hits Tour, which stops at Jergel’s Rhythm Grille. He’ll perform tunes from his Christmas album, Cee Lo’s Magic Moment, plus other songs. Green was one of the original judges on the American version of “The Voice.” Prior to that, he released The Lady Killer in 2010. It was preceded by the no-nonsense hit single “Fuck You.” Speaking of hits, that’s him on Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy,” one of the biggest songs of the ’00s. Everyone from the Raconteurs to the Violent Femmes covered it. Green was one-half of Gnarls Barkley, an experimental R&B duo; the other half was producer Danger Mouse. They last released an album in 2008, The Odd Couple, and performed at the New American Music Union festival in the South Side that year. Green is also a member of the longstanding Atlanta hip-hop group Goodie Mob. Additionally, he sings with Ms. Lauryn Hill on Santana’s “Do You Like the Way” from 1999’s multiplatinum Supernatural. 8 p.m. 285 Northgate Dr., Warrendale. (CM)

2) It is rare to see a “107th Annual” anything, since most things are not good enough to continue for so long. Those who enjoy visual arts should thus be visiting the 107th Annual Exhibition of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh. AAP, one of the country’s premier regional artist groups, was founded in 1910—a time of great ferment in art, when Cubism was new and other movements were incubating. AAP artists over the years have explored many forms, on up through mixed-media and installation art. The Annuals have shown works by Mary Cassatt, Edward Hopper, Andy Warhol, and more, in venues ranging from the long-gone Grand Opera House in downtown Pittsburgh to Carnegie Museum of Art. This year’s 107th AAP Annual is at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art, 221 N. Main St., Greensburg, 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. Wed-Fri and 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Sat-Sun through January 26, 2020. Four additional installations can be seen at Seton Hill University’s Arts Center, 201 W. Otterman St., Greensburg, Mon-Thurs 1 – 8 p.m., Fri 1 – 3 p.m., and Sun 1 – 4 p.m. through early December.  Admission to both locations is free. (MV)
