Sun., May 4, Songwriters Circle members will perform along the route of the Pittsburgh Marathon. Wanna play? In April organizers will tell us our position on the route and other details. As of now, I know four things: our application to participate is confirmed, roads close that morning at 6 a.m. so we’ll have to show up early, the race is over by 1 p.m., and it’ll be a blast. Please shoot me a message if you want to play.
