American Authors headline the 2014 Honda Civic Tour in Pittsburgh Thursday, November 7 at Stage AE.

Riding the success of their major label debut album, “Oh, What a Life,” the Brooklyn-based alternative rock band American Authors rolled into the North Shore on Thursday night.

The band is currently headlining the annual Honda Civic Tour, performing with supporting artists The Mowglis and Oh Honey.

Best known for their hit singles “Believer” and “Best Day of My Life,” American Authors performed most of their new material, showcasing a mix of fresh but familiar pop tunes that blend folksy, mandolin-and-banjo duets and indie pop anthems.

Released in March, “Oh, What a Life” peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard 200 and the No. 3 spot on the U.S. Top Rock Albums Chart.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper.
