Oh, the Humanities
The Pittsburgh Humanities Festival is Friday through Sunday. This event brings together internationally renowned academics, artists, and intellectual innovators offering interviews, intimate conversations and performances focused on art, literature, music, science, policy, and politics at venues throughout Pittsburgh’s cultural district.
It’s a record
The Government Center, a new record store in the North Side neighborhood of Deutschtown celebrates its grand opening Saturday.
The event, co-hosted by independent, Pittsburgh-based record labels Misra Records and Crafted Sounds, will begin at noon starting with live music. At 8:30 p.m., PGHRecordNight will host guests who can bring their music or spin some from the store and be a disc jockey in a 30-minute time slot.

The NCAA Division I wrestling tournament is being held at PPG Paints Arena, Uptown through Saturday. This is the event’s first time here since 1957 when it was at Pitt’s Fitzgerald Field House. Wrestling is popular in the Commonwealth, with Penn State having won seven of the past eight NCAA titles. More than 50 NCAA qualifiers are from Pennsylvania, the largest representation of any state.
