The Chainsmokers Play PPG Paints Arena; The Byahm Hosts ‘Golden Girls’ Puppet Parody (Fri., 10/11/19)

1) As the sun set on day one of the 2016 Thrival Music Festival, the crowd was ready to party; The Chainsmokers were ready to deliver. Members Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall took the stage to pyrotechnics. Streamers burst over the crowd. They’ve since played PPG Paints Arena, where they now return for another concert. Memories…Do Not Open is their debut album. Prior to it, the Chainsmokers’ single “Closer,” which features singer-songwriter Halsey, hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 2016. The duo also recorded “Don’t Let Me Down,” which features Mt. Lebanon native Daya. The single performed well too, hitting No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in July 2016. It was The Chainsmokers’ and Daya’s first top five song on the Hot 100. The tune won a Grammy for Best Dance Recording. World War Joy is their third album. Australian pop-rockers 5 Seconds of Summer and Lennon Stella open. 7:30 p.m. 1001 Fifth Ave., Uptown. (CM)

2) There is no such thing as too much Betty White. Especially not when you can see Betty and her fellow actresses re-created as puppets in a parody-slash-tribute that samples peak moments from the NBC-TV sitcom “The Golden Girls.” 101 6th St., Cultural District. (MV)
