Pittsburgh's Can't Miss Concerts in November

This month's lineup includes David Bazan, Sqürl and PNC Pops: Bernstein Centennial Celebration.



Nov. 18/ For an artist to undergo great transformation over the course of two decades is not unique. But to maintain, during that time, an autobiographical intimacy that brings listeners along with you through the sea-change is more novel. There stands indie singer-songwriter David Bazan, whose catalog traces the story of a man grappling with large questions of politics and faith while never dropping the one thread of consistency: dude can rock. (Club Café, 56-58 S. 12th St., South Side; 412/431-4950, clubcafelive.com)

Nov. 4/ Jim Jarmusch is best known for his cinematic directing, but in SQÜRL, he teams up with composer Carter Logan to make ambient electronica that echoes the contemplation and experimentation of many of his films. Their November performance as part of the Sound Series at The Andy Warhol Museum will see them live-scoring a number of surrealist films from Dada and Man Ray. (Carnegie Music Hall, 4400 Forbes Ave., Oakland; 412/237-8300, warhol.org)

Nov. 10-12/ Join the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra as it celebrates the 100th birthday of the venerable Leonard Bernstein, whose conducting and composing had an incomparable influence on the orchestral music of the 20th century, in PNC Pops: Bernstein Centennial Celebration. Joined by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra Student Chorale and Broadway singers Alli Mauzey and Hugh Panaro, the PSO will present a mix of the late composer’s most (West Side) storied hits. (Heinz Hall, 600 Penn Ave., Downtown; 412/392-4900, pittsburghsymphony.org)
