Harlem Globetrotters in Annual Visit; Bill Deasy’s Boxing Day Show at Club Cafe (Mon., 12/26/16)

1) As that classic whistled version of “Sweet Georgia Brown” filters through the overhead speakers, the star-spangled Harlem Globetrotters will be at PPG Paints Arena today to show off their incredibly well-coordinated, stylish b-ball tricks. The Globetrotters currently have a record of about 13,000 to six against their rivals, the Washington Generals. However, the big news last year was that they will no longer be playing the Generals. Maybe the Generals finally have had enough. 2 and 7 p.m. 1001 Fifth Ave., Uptown.

2) Bill Deasy’s musical career began in earnest in a Grove City apartment when he and a few locals got together for a jam session. Those guys, The Gathering Field, became the ’90s-era regional favorite. Since that humble beginning, Deasy has stacked up a résumé that would help him “make it” in a place like New York and L.A.—He’s had a contract with Atlantic Records, opened for Springsteen and Dylan, and his “Good Things Are Happening” was a theme song for a “Good Morning America” video. Yet he’s remained rooted in Pittsburgh. Today, he’s back for his annual Boxing Day show, this year being held at Club Cafe. Good things are indeed happening! 8 p.m. 56-58 S. 12th St., South Side.
