We're celebrating not just our own collective's one year anniversary, but also the many positive things have taken shape in the local scene and community at large. There's a new cosmopolitan culture emerging in this city and if anyone’s wondering where the future of Pittsburgh lies, a look beneath the surface will provide a fresh perspective. Our collective's goal has been to expose the immense potential of large cross-pollinating network of young creative people that exists in our urban core. It's a community that includes artists, small businesses, cultural venues, public forums, creative spaces, community groups, grassroots organizations, young professionals, high-tech junkies, and countless individuals with unbound  energy and an eye to the 21st century. If anyone's curious about where to find the new vibe that's enveloping the city, come join us to celebrate momentum - the one year anniversary.


A Live Show,  A Concept,  A vibe,  A forum for community cross-pollination.  A dozen musicians, artists, DJs, and performers from diverse disciplines gather.  Many have never shared the stage before.  Some will be meeting for the first time ever. Other stage guests may arrive unexpectedly.  We place them all on stage as an ensemble with a full concert sound system - and we ask them perform a completely unrehearsed show!!!  The audience provides the inspiration.  A special vibe nucleates between all witnesses to the night on the earth and beyond.  And the energy begins irradiating - transferring from one element to the next to the next to the next to the next to the.... momentum, y'all!

We are dedicated to bringing out the soul of grassroots culture in the city of bridges and helping build a community interconnected with the elements beneath the surface. Our goal is to promote collective creativity through a fluid intersection of people, places, ideas and vibrations. In doing so, we seek to connect independent arts and culture to technological innovation and the urban development of Pittsburgh, unlocking the potential energy through the poetry of people in motion....
