Queensrÿche in Concert at Roxian Theatre; Pittsburgh Fringe Festival Continues (Wed., 4/24/24)

1) Progressive heavy metal band Queensrÿche formed in Bellevue, Washington in 1982 and rose to national prominence with the 1990 hit “Silent Lucidity.” The song was nominated for two Grammys and five MTV Music Awards, winning for Viewers’ Choice. After some breakups, reformations, and controversy over who owned the name Queensrÿche—with two different bands touring under the name—all legal matters were settled and the band (only one) resumed touring and recording. Isn’t rock ‘n roll grand! Queensrÿche has released 15 studio albums, the latest being 2022’s Digital Noise Alliance, and the second, “temporary” version of the group released one album as well. Queensrÿche visits the Roxian Theatre for an all-ages concert. The scheduled guest act is Armored Saint. Doors at 7 p.m., show at 8 p.m. 425 Chartiers Ave., McKees Rocks. (M.V.)

PITTSBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL. Various local, national, and international performers. Through April 27.

2) Sometimes it’s a little more fun and daring to live life on the fringes, and when it comes to the arts, that’s just what the Pittsburgh Fringe Festival seeks to accomplish. Now in its eleventh year, one of the main components of the Pittsburgh Fringe Festival is performing arts. This year’s Fest features over 25 different shows, with some in-person and some online. Today’s performances include Choreographers Showcase and Ultra Deluxe + apostrophebeats w/ Wasted Space + overtheweather. Both performances are at 7 p.m.  The Pittsburgh Fringe Festival will be held at several locations in the Friendship, Garfield, Bloomfield area. (R.H.)
