First/Last-Chet Vincent

July 16, 2010

As they ready their new EP, Chet and the Big Bend have a show tonight (7/16) in Squirrel Hill at PD’s Pub. They also have been added to tomorrow’s (7/17) bill at The Brillobox with my man Justin Andrew and Paul Luc. Chet was cool enough to participate in this week’s edition of First/Last Fridays.

  • The first album you ever bought?
  • Oasis, “What’s the Story Morning Glory?”.
  • Your last album bought?
  • Bonnie “Prince” Billy, “Lie Down in the Light”.
  • Favorite album of all time?
  • Bob Dylan, “Blonde on Blonde”.
  • Least favorite/most disappointing album?
  • No least favorite album.
  • First concert attended?
  • Lord only knows…
  • Last concert ?
  • Round Black Ghosts CD Release.
  • Favorite concert ever?
  • Tie between Bob Dylan w/ Merle Haggard at the Beacon Theatre in NYC, and The Unicorns w/ The Arcade Fire at The Rex.
  • Least favorite concert?
  • The Darkness at Station Square.
  • Favorite thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
  • I can’t say enough about Pittsburgh. It’s this secret place — surrounded by rivers and hills — with no threat of hurricanes, volcanoes, water shortages or earthquakes (or oil spills… ). We don’t even have any dangerous wild animals! Yet, somehow it’s really cheap to live here. I don’t know exactly why or how we’re so often over-looked, but I hope it stays that way.

Thanks Chet. The Arcade Fire at The Rex? That’s definitely one of those, “I was there when” shows.
