    http://via2014.com/people/deafheaven/
    Known for their epic and emotional sound, this post-metal trio from San Francisco sit atop Pitchfork’s “Best New Music” list for their 2013 sophomore album Sunbather. Coming off an international tour that has burst eardrums across Europe and the US, Pittsburgh is next.
  • LITURGY (US/New York City)
    http://via2014.com/people/liturgy-pgh/
    Transcendental black metal. Citing Swans, Glenn Branca, and Lightning Bolt as influences, Liturgy uses every instrument, literal or figurative, to produce meaning and intensity, disregarding the genre boundaries of black metal, hardcore and experimental music. Intensely physical performances. Get tickets here.
  • SLICES (US/Pittsburgh)
    http://via2014.com/people/slices/
    “Aggressive hardcore punk with just enough weirdness” Slices is a Pittsburgh outfit through and through. 

SCREENING: /  Row House Cinema ,  4115 Butler St.
FROM DEEP *Pittsburgh premiere!*
Coming home after a year of racking up awards and praise, Brett Kashmere’s ambitious documentary is part sociological treatise, part audiovisual mix-tape, charting the three-decade love affair between basketball and rap. Drawing its imagery from contemporary pick-up games, movies, music videos, video games, and spectacular sports footage, FROM DEEP is about the game of basketball and its profound role in American life – as an everyday street game played by millions around the country; a force in fashion, music, and mass media; and a platform for broader issues of race and class.
