Bucs vs. Steelers; Erasure In Concert at CLMH (CPs Sun., 9/28/14)
1) The Steelers take on the Bucs today. No, it’s not some kind of weird intramural major sporting event where our football team plays our baseball team, it’s the Steelers vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Steelers are at 2-1 after their wonderful 37-19 win against Carolina. The Bucs are a hungry 0-3 team looking to break out of their slump. 1 p.m. Heinz Field, 100 Art Rooney Ave., North Shore.
2) The British synth-pop group Erasure is making the Pittsburgh scene tonight with a concert at Carnegie Library Music Hall in Munhall. The duo is composed of singer Andy Bell and keyboardist Vince Clarke, both of whom write songs for the group. Clarke was a founding member of Depeche Mode and left that band in 1981. He teamed with Bell to record a single in ’85 and they have been active together since then, with 16 albums to their credit including hit singles like “Make it Wonderful” and “Chains of Love.” Erasure is especially popular in the LGBT community as Bell is openly gay. The men are currently touring in support of their latest album The Violet Flame, which was just released on Monday. Opening is All Hail the Silence. 7:30 p.m. 510 East 10th Ave., Munhall.
3) The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them opened in theaters this past Friday. It’s the third installment of writer/director Ned Benson’s three-part series chronicling a boy/girl relationship (James McAvoy and Jessica Chastain) and its emotional ups and downs. The film features a great supporting cast with Viola Davis, William Hurt, Isabelle Huppert, and Ciarán Hinds. Check Fandango for local screens and times.
