The Magnetic Fields in Concert at Carnegie Music Hall; Mr. Smalls Hosts We Are Scientists (Tues., 6/19/18)

1) The Magnetic Fields come to Pittsburgh, one of only three cities on their 50 Song Memoir Tour. Their sixth album, 69 Love Songs, released in 1999, made Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. 2017’s 50 Song Memoir commemorates each year of frontman Stephin Merritt’s life with a song, such as “’74 No.” The first show is Tuesday, June 19, and he and the band will play the first 25 songs on the album. They will play the next 25 songs on Wednesday, June 20. The concerts are at Carnegie Music Hall in Oakland as part of the Warhol’s Sound Series. 8 p.m. 4400 Forbes Ave., Oakland. (CM)

2) We Are Scientists are a duo who write striking indie songs that skew slightly to the irreverent. They are one of many New York bands featured on the soundtrack to the romantic teen comedy Nick & Nora’s Infinite Playlist. Their contribution, “After Hours,” also appears on 2008’s Brain Thrust Mastery. This year’s Megaplex is their latest album. They play The Funhouse at Mr. Smalls. 8 p.m. 400 Lincoln Ave., Millvale.

3) Our battlin’ Bucs take on the Milwaukee Brewers today in a 7:05 p.m. game. The Pirates meet the Brew crew again tomorrow, then play the Arizona Diamondbacks in a four game home series. PNC Park, 115 Federal St., North Shore.
