Cool Picks brings you the best in Pittsburgh entertainment every day!
1) There’s a great sister act happening at Jergel’s Rhythm Grille tonight, The Joseph Sisters. Marybeth, Jamie and Shalya create a fresh, full country soul sound with great harmonies and a lively beat. 8 p.m. No cover. 103 Slade Lane, Warrendale.
2) RADical Days continue with free Heinz Field tours on the hour (10 a.m. – 3 p.m.; some restrictions may apply) and a free tour at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts “2012 Artist of the Year (Charlie Brodsky)” and “Emerging Artist (Vanessa German)” exhibitions, 1 p.m., 6300 Fifth Ave., Shadyside.
3) Attack Theatre, a modern dance/music/theatre company are staging “Some Assembly Required: Public,” outdoor productions at various public art locales around the city. This evening they will be performing at Schenley Plaza in front of the Frick Fine Arts Building in Oakland. This is the plaza with the beautiful fountain by Victor David Brenner, entitled “A Song to Nature.” Brenner also designed the engraving for the Lincoln penny, still in use today. Each performance will have American Sign Language interpreters on-site. 6 p.m. Free. Oakland (across from Carnegie Library).
4) “Born Yesterday,” the Pittsburgh Public Theater’s latest production, opens tonight at the O’Reilly Theater. The show revolves around a ditsy showgirl whose criminal boyfriend wants to “class her up.” He hires a nerdy journalist to give her some education in culture, and hilarity ensues. Directed by Ted Pappas. 8 p.m., through October 28th. Theater Square. 621 Penn Ave., Downtown Cultural District.
