First/Last-Diamond Shapes

February 18, 2014

Check out Lianna at SoundCloud. I recently met Lianna as she performed at the inuagural HughShows Live @ Eide’s singing back-up with Household Stories. Turns out she a budding singer-songwriter in her own right and is just starting out and working on completing her first EP. I really want to thank her for playing the gig and for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

  • The first album you ever bought?
  • “The Green Album” by Weezer.
  • Your last album bought?
  • “6 Feet Beneath The Moon” by King Krule.
  • Favorite album of all time?
  • “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan” by Bob Dylan.
  • Least favorite/most disappointing album?
  • I don’t like to put anyone down for trying, but I remember this Emo album I had when I was in high school in which every song sounded exactly the same. I don’t remember the name of the band or album.
  • First concert attended?
  • This is super embarrassing, but it was the Barenaked Ladies. I was 12 and I’m going to blame peer pressure.
  • Last concert?
  • Cyndi Lauper at The Palace Theatre. She tells the best stories.
  • Favorite concert ever?
  • Angel Olsen at The Warhol. The intimate atmosphere combined with her amazing songs and voice made for a beautiful evening.
  • Least favorite concert?
  • I should say the Barenaked Ladies, but I honestly don’t even remember that concert. I’ll go with Saves The Day and Taking Back Sunday. The bands weren’t really into it and my friend and I made the poor decision of going into the mosh pit.
  • Favorite thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
  • I’ve lived right outside of the city for my whole life. It can be a little cold at times, but it always holds me dearly.
  • Thanks, Lianna. Really like what I hear so far. Looking forward to more music from you for sure. And seriously, thanks so much for playing Eide’s. It really does mean a lot.
