2/3's of Chai, Matt & Phil

Most exciting for my peoples representing Pittsburgh , is that our friend and filmmaker Matt Lily will be having his film "Spread The Love: A Day In The Life Of Allen Valentine, Freelance Entertainer," screened at this event. And as if having one former yinzer represent on the silver screen wasn't enough -- the soundtrack to the film also includes the song "PB & J" (click for clip) by our boys ChaiBaba, who will also be coming through the city to come see the movie.

For some earlier Matt Lily & ChaiBaba collaboration check out Matt's video from ChaiBaba's
Slow Brewed CD release party shown in the YouTube video below.

If you can go, please remember to RSVP for the movie at Red Rope. And Spread the word!!!
