For those not in the know, Black Forge Coffee House is, as the name suggets, a coffee shop but it also serves as a busy concert venue for up and coming local and national bands & artists. The current shop is nestled in Pittsburgh's Allentown neighborhood and over the past 3 years of life has hosted tons of shows. Unfortunately, they're in need of a new location to keep the venue running as their landlord is pressuring them to stop the shows.
Personally, I believe that what these people do matters to our music scene and community. They're providing opportunities to bands and artists, supporting fellow local business owners and helping to revitalize a neighborhood in this city that hasn't always had the best reputation. On top of that, they produce a quality cup of coffee.
