The Bird and The Bee are coming to Pittsburgh on Wednesday, August 14th to play at Mr. Smalls Theatre. They are embarking on a North American tour in support of their upcoming album, Interpreting the Masters Volume 2: A Tribute to Van Halen, a collection of covers of some of the most massive and wild songs from David Lee Roth-era Van Halen. Previously, they band shared their extremely fun and dancey cover of the Van Halen classic “Panama” and when they announced the full album, shared the equally entertaining “Ain’t Talking ‘Bout Love.”
Following the August 2nd Los Angeles performance, the tour continues sans Greg, with stops in Chicago, Brooklyn, Atlanta and more before culminating in a performance on August 30th at Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco. Supporting Inara for these dates, and playing in her band, will be Alex Lilly and Samantha Sidley. Barbara Gruska and Vikram Devasthali will be playing in each act, the former on drums and the latter playing guitar and trombone, while Inara will be taking on singing duties in the opening acts, as well.
