Major Rager at the Commonwealth Press Warehouse
On Saturday, Jan. 24, a benefit-slash-rager for the Pittsburgh Food Bank will be held at the Commonwealth Press Warehouse. Fondly known as the Major Rager, guests are encouraged to come rock out to some proper tunes from a killer lineup of several Pittsburgh punk bands and performers, including: Worlds Scariest Police Chases, White Wives, The Homeless Gospel Choir, Roger Harvey, No Time, Edhochuli, BARONS, Latecomer, and A Lovely Crisis.
Several of these local bands have been making major waves over the past year. Members of Edhochuli signed with A-F Records this past fall after a nationwide tour, and along with other bands expected at Major Rager, they’re featured on the A-F records & Commonwealth Press 2014 Free Sampler album. You can listen to and download it now for FREE!
Other notable mentions include The Homeless Gospel Choir (Derek Zanetti), whose recent album, “I Used To Be So Young,” gained further recognition after releasing a controversial bumper sticker along with it (pictured right). Zanetti has also been receiving continued acknowledgement for his first published book, Existentialism The Musical (2012). White Wives’ four-day December tour throughout New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania got major hype, as well. And Worlds Scariest Police Chases are gearing up to blast out some tracks from their latest album, “NOFX and out come the wolves dookie,” at the event.
Bands will be performing into the wee hours of the night and donations will be collected at the door. For those who are also craving some late night bites, food will be provided by Keith Fuller of Root 174. Festivities kick off this Saturday at 4PM. Come ready to majorly rage!
