The concert venue is a notoriously tough business, and even the legendary venues tend to find their fortunes changing after a few good years. That's why it's so remarkable that Mr. Small's Theatre is now celebrating its 10th anniversary as a venue.

The risks were always high, and obstacles formidable: an off-the-beaten-path location in Millvale, with lousy late-night bus access (especially to the student populations in Oakland), limited parking and skeptical neighbors, among others.

All of that mattered, but none of it (apparently) was a deal-breaker. Or, at least, none of it was outweighed by a beautiful venue in a converted church, a dedicated staff, and a list of outstanding amenities — including a recording studio and hostel for touring bands — that have kept Mr. Small's on the map.

To celebrate Mr. Small's 10th anniversary, there will be two shows on May 30 and 31 headlined by Pittsburgh punk rock rabble-rousers Anti-Flag, who will play different sets each night with songs from all 10 of their albums. Also on the bill May 30 are The Swellers, Hostage Calm and World's Scariest Police Chases. On May 31, Lemuria, Code Orange Kids and Worship This get it started. Each night, the show starts at 7:30 p.m. and costs $15.
