It’s a good time to be an alt-rock music lover in the ‘Burgh. New Orleans-based guitar-shredding sensation Better Than Ezra is set to perform in The Event Center at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh. Tickets to see the group’s ‘Live A Little’ tour are on sale now.


For over 35 years, alt-rock icons Better Than Ezra have maintained a direct line to the unbridled joy of making music, endlessly dreaming up songs with an uncanny power to linger forever in the listener’s heart.


Since the arrival of their breakthrough album Deluxe — a platinum-selling LP featuring their era-defining smash hit “Good” — the New Orleans band’s bittersweet but quick-witted songwriting and supremely catchy sound have led to triumphs like landing on Billboard’s “100 Greatest Alternative Artists of All Time” and “100 Greatest Alternative Songs of All Time” lists.


Their first album in a decade, Super Magick, arrives as a prime showcase for the distinct collision of elements that have made them so beloved over the years: the eternally sticky melodies, heart-on-sleeve storytelling and wildly clever turns of phrase.


Elsewhere on Super Magick, Better Than Ezra imbue their songs with a bit of wisdom on the infinitely strange journey of being alive. A supercharged pop anthem powered by frenetic guitar work and pummeling basslines, “Live A Little” perfectly encapsulates the band’s one-of-a-kind narrative voice, balancing its full-hearted philosophizing with fun-loving humor.


“We’re excited to welcome Better Than Ezra to The Event Center for the very first time,” said Rivers Casino Pittsburgh’s VP of Marketing, Shannon Redmond. “It’s an honor to be part of the legendary alt-rockers’ upcoming tour.”
