I paid a visit to my friend Tom in Pittsbugh this weekend, primarily to watch a little football game on Saturday. But Tom, being the well-connected musician that he is, brought me to the bi-level Brillobox in Bloomfield to catch a pair of local bands on Friday night. The Harlan Twins played rootsy rock like a latter-day version of The Band while The Slow Reel's Rob Collier doubled on bass and vocals. The upstairs room was packed wall-to-wall, the floor occasionally giving way underneath. All part of the fun.
