This past Friday, April 7, The Cultural Trust put on a show in downtown Pittsburgh, at Space Gallery, that was entitled “Non-Punk Pittsburgh.” Why call it “Non-Punk” when it was all about punk? Well, curator and punk rock pioneer Dennis Childers (Carsickness drummer), explains, “it wasn’t a punk scene like the rest of the world was having ,it was more of an explosion of creativity—it was the beginning of Pittsburgh’s transition from smoky old town, to the renaissance city we live and work in today.”
