Former Senator and Current Comedian Al Franken Performs at CHMH; Clemson vs. Pitt: Bill Toms at Moondog’s (Sat., 10/23/21)

1) Former U.S. Senator and comedian (that’s a weird description), Al Franken, brings his “The Only Former U.S. Senator Currently On Tour” Tour to Carnegie of Homestead Music Hall. He is “one of the original writers for Saturday Night Live. During his fifteen seasons with SNL, Franken won five Emmy’s for writing and producing. He’s also the author of four no. 1 New York Times bestsellers, including Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot and Other Observations, Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them – A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right, and Al Franken, Giant of the Senate.” “The Al Franken Podcast.” has become one of the nation’s top-ten politics and public affairs podcasts. 8 p.m. 510 E. 10th St., Munhall (it’s also weird that the Carnegie of Homestead is in Munhall).

3) Bill Toms and Hard Rain with the Soulville Horns will be rockin’ out Moondog’s in Blawnox this evening. Toms’ latest album is Keep Movin’ On. See our story on the making of the album. Toms’ slightly raspy, deeply soulful voice and his guitar playing prowess combine with the drums, horns, and rest of the band to create a hot rock sound. 8 p.m. 378 Freeport Rd
