Beware, all other cities on their current tour.

The Chainsmokers aren’t just bad at making good music. The duo apparently isn’t sure how to spell Pittsburgh, either.

Well, maybe we can’t put all the blame on members Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, but at a Pittsburgh show on Saturday, the Chainsmokers ended their set with a sign that read “Pittsburg.” They blamed their “visual guy” in a now-deleted tweet.

It’s not clear if this was supposed to be a joke, but in a review for TribLive, writer Zach Brendza said: “It was obviously unfortunate, but even more so because Taggart made it a point to talk about how great the city had been to The Chainsmokers and not every city was as enthusiastic as Pittsburgh.”

Watch out, Cleveland.
