After party is at club Deisel in the strip district (east carson street) Sweet Earth, jam band with young talented guys, will be hosting it
just an fyi---Club Diesel is in Southside (not the Strip District---2 very different places) and is about 2 miles from the show. I believe it's between 15th and 16th on East Carson street....15203 is the zip. It's a big club-type place. Usually has pop/dance type gigs there. Not a very hippy-friendly type of venue. Lots of local "yinzers"....The TBird (where theCAUSE is playing after the show) is in Lawrenceville which is more a bar with a good space for a stage and balcony. FWIW---The TBird is a MUCH cooler place IMHO.
As for pre-show, I believe Fuel and Fuddle in Oakland (less than a mile from the pete) is a pretty good choice for a pre-show beverage and good food. Another decent place is the Pittsburgh cafe which is even closer to the venue. Both places have a very nice beer selection.
