The SouthSide Works is back! In addition to undergoing a major property redevelopment that
will feature plentiful community green space, a dog park with a local brewery attached, and a
new and improved Town Center that will feature a stage and outdoor all-seasons food &
beverage concepts, the property has become one of the city’s hottest spots for summer
concerts and event.
The season kicks off with “Music on the Mon” on July 2, 2021 and features live performances by
Bill Deasy and Ferdinand the Bull. The free all-ages event, produced by programming
partners Hearcorp, Tech 25, Pandemic Dance Party, and Winslo6 PGH, will kick off at 7pm
on The North Lot. The North Lot is the property’s new outdoor revenue and greenspace
overlooking the Monongahela River and is located next door to the Hyatt House on S. Water
Street. The property will also be unveiling its new refurbished vintage airstream that will be a
mobile bar concept known as the Bar Car.
PA Libations will be taking up residency in the Bar Car for the summer events at SouthSide
Works. The prolific purveyor of Pennsylvania-made brews, wines, liquors, and cocktails will
be slinging drinks all summer long for the 21+ crowd from the vintage vehicle. The group
will also be operating the property’s Bar Car for the Movies on the Mon events, free music
and movie nights, which will begin on Wednesday, July 7th in The North Lot.
For those looking for local eats while they enjoy Music on the Mon, rotating food trucks and
vendors will be popping up all summer long. Yovi’s (a Pittsburgh favorite) will be serving up
their famous hot dogs and Italian sausages for the July 2nd Music on the Mon kick-off.
Hearcorp’s Tech25 apprenticeship program will also be integrated into the production of
Music on the Mon. Students will be training on-site in various aspects of event production
and tech. Music on the Mon custom T-shirts as well as other “Mon merch” designed by
Commonwealth Press will be available for sale on-site, with proceeds benefiting the Tech25
