Gaelic Storm Blows into Jergel’s; Point Park Playhouse Goes to ‘The Wolves’ (Sun., 2/23/20)

1) Gaelic Storm, who will soon blow into Jergel’s Rhythm Grille, became one of the world’s most popular Irish bands overnight when they were featured in the blockbuster of blockbusters, Titanic. The group was seen entertaining the third-class passengers in the ship’s steerage section. Since then, they have maintained their place as one of the leading ambassadors of all things Irish, recording every famous Celtic song there is and writing a few of their own. The band, however, strangely has had difficulty keeping a fiddler for more than a few years, that position apparently being to them what the drummer is to Spinal Tap (minus the spontaneous combustion, of course). However, Katie Grennan has in recent years solidified that position. Their most recent album is 2017’s Go Climb a Tree. 8 p.m. 285 Northgate Dr., Warrendale. (EC, RH)

2) Emerging playwright Sarah DeLappe scored a near miss that’s actually a hit when her play The Wolves was named a finalist for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It’s about a female high-school soccer team called the Wolves, whose players must kick through myriad traumas on the path to growing up. The play has won an ardent fan base. Point Park Conservatory Theatre performs The Wolves at the Pittsburgh Playhouse. 2 p.m. Runs through March 8. 350 Forbes Ave., Downtown. (MV)
