Steve Forbert Sings “Romeo’s Tune”; GLSEN’s Gala to Change the Game (CPs Sat., 5/3/14)

1) “Romeo’s Tune,” with its catchy piano hooks and nice melody, rocketed up the charts to #11 on the Billboard Top 100 list in 1980. The song received heavy FM radio rotation and brought Steve Forbert and his 1979 album Jackrabbit Slim into the American lexicon. Tonight you’ll have the chance to see him  in the intimate setting of Club Cafe. 7 p.m. 56-58 S. 12th St., South Side.

2) GLSEN’s (Gay Lesbian & Straight Education Network) Pittsburgh chapter is holding its Gala to Change the Game this evening at Carnegie Museum of Art’s beautiful Cafe. The festivities include dining, drinking, raffles, entertainment, and inspirational guest speakers. It’s all for a great cause, as the mission of GLSEN’s Changing the Game is fighting to ensure that sports and athletics are safe and inclusive activities for LGBT students. Register now or buy tickets at the door. 4400 Forbes Ave., Oakland.

3) City Theatre’s latest production, Hope and Gravity, is an interesting mix of overlapping but unrelated stories involving an elevator and fate. The elevator stops on random floors, exposing  a range of situations including a hotel hook-up, a rocky relationship, and a chance encounter. Hope and Gravity was written by Michael Hollinger and is directed by Tracy Brigden. Runs through May 25. 5:30 p.m. 1300 Bingham St., South Side.

4) If you’re looking to take in a Pirates game and pick up a fashion accessory, don’t miss tonight’s special as the first 25,000 fans receive a Pirates fedora hat. Oh, by the way, the Bucs are playing the Toronto Blue Jays at 7:05 p.m. PNC Park, 115 Federal St., North Shore.

5) In Arena Football League action it’s our Pittsburgh Power taking on cross-state rivals the Philadelphia Soul at Consol Energy Center. 7 p.m. 1001 Fifth Ave., Uptown.
