What to do this week in Pittsburgh: Aug. 12-18, 2019

Dance it out this week. No matter your preferred style of music — hip hop, country, Myspace-era throwbacks, or “grimy club lullabies,” there’s a little something for you.

Not into music? That’s cool. There’s beer school, a meteor shower, game night, and an urban hike to try this week.

Here’s what’s on tap for the next seven days.
