Funky Soul Blowout


TITLE TOWN Soul & Funk Dance Party
Post Holiday Groove Blowout

Saturday, Dec. 26 @ Shadow Lounge
5972 Baum Blvd. (at S. Highland in East Liberty)
Doors and dancing at 9pm.
18+ $5

To help spread the cheer before we head into the new year, TITLE TOWN is taking hip-shaking holiday GROOVES to the next level for a post holiday SOUL and FUNK BLOWOUT.

J. Malls and Gordy G. spin 5 hours of top-shelf soul selections, rare and classic funk, and some of that old school R&B for good measure. We'll provide the soundtrack - you do your thing on the floor - and the lovely staff at the Shadow Lounge serves up the rest.

Expect tracks by CLARENCE REID, EDDIE KENDRICKS, THE DELLS, ARETHA FRANKLIN, JOE BATAAN and more.

The lights will be low. So get up on the down stroke to the Pittsburgh's finest showcase of vintage soul and funk vinyl ...that shows no signs of slowing down.

This month we're offering our first ever, limited release TITLE TOWN SOUL & FUNK 45 MIX free to the first 100 people. Don't be late!

The Shadow Lounge is a smoke-free venue committed to bringing the best in local and national music to Pittsburgh PA. The Lounge is located at 5972 Baum Blvd. Pittsburgh, PA. Phone: (412) 363-8277. Guests must be 18 and over to attend.

Soulful Sounds, Funk Bombs, True School Hip Hop ... REAL MUSIC! Wear your dancing shoes, or just lounge around and vibe to unparalleled sounds!!

We're doing it again, only this time around it's at New Amsterdam (Lawrenceville) and we have the other half of the hip hop duo Lone Catalysts in the house, Pittsburgh's own J. Sands (he was actually in the house blessing the mic the last time too)!

We got lots of positive feedback on the 1st Feel Good Music and the turnout was definitely higher than anticipated. We hope you'll join us again on the night before the night before Christmas at New Amsterdam.

Happy Holidays


Well folks it feels like forever since I last blogged. However, it has not been that long. As you know the holiday season is upon us, and weather you celebrate Christmas, Kwanzaa, or any other holiday during this time, it is bound to get you stressed. The posts that follow this one are all fun and exciting things to do. So, de-stress, relax, and have fun!


I love to see my friends and hang out and have a great time. This past week, I had been low key and went hardly anywhere. I received texts and tweets asking, 'where are you at?' 'where are you going this weekend?' Since SpotlightPittsburgh is growing in popularity it is difficult for me to keep the pace even though I am out often. Again I ask, if you or anyone that you know likes to hang out, has an outgoing personality, and would like to represent SpotlightPittsburgh at events around the city, please send me an email, spotlightpittsburgh@gmail. Malik and I are only two people, and as much as we try to cover alot of ground, we cant make it to everything. I would like the Spotlight to shine on as much of our beautiful city as possible and I simply can not do it all, so help!!!


Ok, in the mean while, we will keep you up dated with what is happening the best we can. Also soon, I will post "after the event" blogs so you can get a better scope and know what the event was like even if you could not make it.


Thanks to Wadria Style & Steel Taylor for helping compile today's event list. One of the events listed is Allure. This will be the event to close out this crazy year. In my opinion, it is so nice that this celebration is not on new years eve, but on dec 26th. In the past I have been to several new years eve parties in the city, and they have been total wompers, because many folks leave town to celebrate the in coming year. These parties always lack a certain energy to me. December 26th however is a different story! Christmas will be over, it will be the first day of Kwanzaa, everyone wants to party from the 26th until the 1st, so here is the opportunity to jump it all off. do come to Allure, and have a great time!


Please pay attention to the dates of some of these listings, as many of them are this week. Connect hosted by Classic1824 @ Capri bar will be a great networking opportunity for everyone to connect with one another about our youth. If you work with and/or have a heart for our youth, this connect is for you.


Ok, I have typed enough. Check out each listing, mark the dates, and go.....


Thanks for holding SpotlightPittsburgh down!!!

Lets all Connect


We invite you to come out to our next Connect event entitled 'Save The Babies' for all professionals that work with youth. We'll have a DJ, free food, drink specials, give aways & more! Also, 1 dollar off for everyone who works with children! Come out, build & connect with us!
