Yes Part II (CP’s Mon. 8/5/13)
1) You asked, and psychedelic rock band Yes told Pittsburgh “YES!” for a second show. You won’t be the “Owner of a Lonely Heart” at this intimate performance at the Carnegie Library Music Hall. The band will be playing three complete albums, including The Yes Album, Close to the Edge, and Going for the One. Groove to the sounds of the 70’s with songs like “Starship Trooper,” “Awaken,” and “Siberian Khatru.” 7:30 p.m. 510 E. 10th Ave., Munhall.
2) That case of the Monday blues has got to go. Relax and mellow out at Savoy restaurant’s Jazz Mondays. Roger Humphries Trio will be performing with the smooth sounds of vocalist Shari Richards. Enjoy Savoy’s full dinner menu or nibble from the lounge’s small plates to chase away those blues. If that doesn’t work, try the signature Jazztini for a guaranteed pick-me-up. 6 – 10 p.m. 2623 Penn Ave., Strip District.
3) If you haven’t been to the Carnegie Museum of Natural History lately, you’ll want to get there soon so you don’t miss Garden of Light: Works by Paula Crevoshay. These jewelry designs include gold, opal, sapphire, and the rare conch pearl. Her pieces are inspired by nature to show coexistence with the plant, animal, and mineral kingdoms. Whether it is an orchid pendant or a spider pin, you’ll find something to tickle your fancy. Exhibit ends Aug. 11. 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. 4400 Forbes Ave., Oakland.
4) You know the music that narrates your daydreams? It’s indie rock band Wild Nothing, and these Virginia natives are putting on a wistful performance at the Altar Bar. Formed in 2009, Wild Nothing has released two studio albums and is touring to promote their unique sound, including songs like “Paradise” and “Gemini.” The Neffs and I Am a Sea Creature open. 8 p.m. 1620 Penn Ave., Strip District.
5) Today marks the second day of the Greene County Fair. This year’s weeklong event includes everything from 4-H exhibits to a wood carving auction, in addition to the traditional fair rides and refreshments. Today’s events feature the Lawn and Garden Tractor Pull, Wool Queen contest, and music from Morgantown natives Rustic Highway Band. Gates open at 3 p.m. 107 Fairgrounds Rd., Waynesburg.
