The Eagle was a great experience in Pittsburgh. Great city and great people there. Fritz (the manager) made my stay there a very pleasant one. Thanks Fritz!! It was a great time for me, even as a performer, and i look forward to appearing there again sometime soon.
I did 2 shows and also signed autographs with the fans in between the sets. I also pulled someone out of the crowd to play with and ended up striping him down on stage in the second performance. I thought he was a little shy, but he didn't seem to mind as it was happening. If you guys are ever in Pittsburgh check the Eagle out. It is kind of a drive, and out of the way, but it is well worth the navigating to get there. The club is huge. Not a traditional Eagle at all. The inside of the club sported different themes on each floor. Have you ever heard of an eagle with more than one floor? or most other bars for that fact. This bar had 4 floors. and the top floor being a huge stage area for performers. The first floor was setup like a pool hall. The second floor had a huge dance floor, and the third floor was like a regular neighborhood bar lounge area. The outside of the bar, being very deceiving, looked like an old warehouse, being in an industrial area. The building was an old historic industrial warehouse i was told, in between two huge bridges. It was neat to look up and see these monolith's intersecting on both sides of the building. It made you feel kind of small although the building was huge.

on another note. I also ended up running into a old friend of mine when i was there as well. So it was great to catch up. When he found out i was there he made a b-line to come and support me. Him going through a family crisis this was a great escape for him, and a pleasure having a friend there to hang with as well.
