Rock The Block
at WYEP is our annual concert and block party that happens at our home at 67 Bedford Square on the Southside of Pittsburgh. This year's headliner is Ra Ra Riot
, they formed in 2006 at Syracuse University and have been compared to early R.E.M. and even called Spoon 'with strings'. Their music covers some darker topics but delivers pop and rock hooks combining the violin and cello -- which is an important part of the band's sound.
The Rhumb Line
is the band's latest effort. Check out a live concert from NPR from last October.
Rock The Block get's under way with a special VIP event with Serena Ryder
. Tickets for general admission and the VIP event are on sale now. Local act Lohio
get's everything started musically outside followed by this year's headliner Ra Ra Riot
Rock the Block with WYEP on Saturday, September 12th
as we turn Bedford Square into a block party, featuring food, drinks, and fantastic live music.
