Cloud Nothings with Shaky Shrines

William Pitt Union Assembly Room

Time: 8:00 p.m.

Admission: $12 advance / $15 at door

The WPTS annual fall show brings Cloud Nothings and their aggressively hooky brand of punk to the Union. Possibly WPTS’ most high-profile act to date, Cloud Nothings comes in support of their excellent fourth album, Here and Nowhere Else, which was a tiring effort in acceleration. It’s the band’s first date on their fall tour, and local psychedelic act Shaky Shrines is set to open.

Friday, Sept. 26 (through Oct. 12)


Studio Theatre, Pittsburgh Playhouse

222 Craft Ave.

Time: Matinees at 2:00 p.m., night shows at 8:00 p.m.

Admission: $15-$27

Point Park graduate Tomé Cousin directs The REP’s second production of the season. “Souvenir” is a two-character comedy, focusing on Cosme McMoon, an average aspiring pianist, and Florence Foster Jenkins, a wealthy but tone-deaf urbanite who helps set up recitals for McMoon.

The Afghan Whigs

Mr. Smalls Theatre

400 Lincoln Ave.

Time: 8:00 p.m.

Admission: $30 advance / $35 at door

The Afghan Whigs haven’t been to Pittsburgh since their more substantial reunion of 2012 (the band briefly teamed up in 2006 for Unbreakable: A Retrospective 1990-2006). But, in 2014, they finally have some new material to back up their tour, with Do to the Beast — their first new album in 16 years. While the band has been playing plenty of tracks from it, this tour is also a chance to celebrate the Gentlemen at 21 reissue, due out next month.

13 Most Wanted Men: Andy Warhol and the 1964 World’s Fair

The Andy Warhol Museum

117 Sandusky St.

Time: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday: closed, Friday: 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Admission: Free with museum admission

An import from the Queens Museum in New York, this exhibition features Warhol’s recreation of the 13 most-wanted criminals at the time of 1964’s World’s Fair. He created a light scandal at the time by using his commission at the fair to display his rendering of the mug shots. Months later, he repainted the art that appears in “13 Most Wanted Men.”
