Pittsburgh Event

Poor Young Things @ Smiling Moose PGH on Oct 13

Each time this band hits the stage they elevate their game.”
– Jeff Leake, SiriusXM

SiriusXM ‘Emerging Artist of the Year’ winners Poor Young Things released their debut full-length, The Heart. The Head. The End, this year and the Canadian quintet has been slowly building a name for themselves here in the States.  After spending the summer on the Vans Warped Tour and performing on national tv, PYT were dubbed a ‘highlight’ of the Yellow Phone Music Conference by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal.  Yellow Phone co-founder Scott Ziel adds, “a great, hooky rock band with big choruses and really lush vocals. They are radio-ready.”

After some much needed rest back in the Great White North, Poor Young Things are heading back out on the road again and come to THE SMILING MOOSE in PITTSBURGH on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 13th.
This show is part of a run of dates with fellow-Canadians Rah Rah that ends with multiple performances at the CMJ Music Marathon.
Sunday, October 13 – 8pm
