#SupportPGHMusic // Exclusively on HughShows Radio streaming at the bottom of the page, enjoy the entire December 13, 2014 concert of HughShows Live at Eide’s Finale featuring mini sets from acoustic and solo versions of my favorite Pittsburgh bands during the marathon 6 hour concert. //

“A Day Without Love has existed in many forms. Started as a solo act by frontman Brian Walker during his college years, the music took on the shape of a full-band when Walker collaborated with Philadelphia producer Jake Detwiler in 2013. The resulting debut EP, “Island”, was a sharp contrast from the mellow acoustic musings that Walker had leaned on in the past – it was aggressive, grungy, and energetic. Since then, A Day Without Love has seen a rotating cast of musicians surround the singer/songwriter for a handful of short releases (“Confessions of the Innocent Mind” single and “A Day Without Oscar” split EP, both in 2014). Currently Brian has recently released his last EP before LP 1 entitled Young Professionals. Young Professionals is a split EP with his old college friend , Sam Christie from Chicago. It is a true contrast between two different forms of underground music, combined on one record. A Day Without Love is currently seeking new members, while playing/touring in the east coast regional area while writing LP1.”

A Day Without Love is an alternative punk rock project out of Philadelphia from songwriter Brian Walker. He has several releases and stops in Pittsburgh this Saturday (9/26) at Bates Hardcore Gym. want to thank Brian for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Any thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?

I have always thought of Pittsburgh to be a golden hill of awesomeness. I have done charity events, shows, and visited friends here and every time I go I enjoy the Primanti sandwiches, make new friends and enjoy how kind everyone is. It’s a good time all around.

Thanks, Brian. Our town’s new slogan… ‘Golden Hills of Awesomeness’! Love it!
