Live music plays an important role in providing a higher quality of life within urban neighborhoods by supporting cultural expression, social identity, economic development, and, most importantly, a positive and safe sense of place.
The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership has developed an initiative to bring more live music into restaurants, bars, and other unique venues in Downtown Pittsburgh.
