#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. //

As I previously mentioned, I really had too much fun at this show. The venue is a screen printing studio that I will hopefully be taking classes at soon. The ‘artsy-farsty’ crowd was mingling upstairs while the -rock-n-rollers’ were enjoying the music downstairs. Best of both artistic worlds. Hopefully there will be more cool gigs there soon. As for the band, they are back being a smoking quintet with the addition of Matt on keys and guitar and if you don’t believe the hype, you haven’t heard the awesome break in ‘Only Thing’, have you?

Another fun Josh solo set. I had a blast at this gig. Hanging with friends, sluggin’ beers and listening to awesome music. Can’t think of a better time.

Dean is a local musician who also happens to be an artist. I cannot stress enough how much I admire his DIY ways of producing his art. I caught up with him at a cool event at AIR on the Northside. He just happened to be there printing his own merch. The occasion was a silkscreen demo by one of the city’s most unique visual artists, Budai. He specializes in graphic arts and produces some of the most incredible concert posters I have ever seen. His unconditional willingness to share his knowledge has always amazed me. This city is full of unique treasures in the forms of our artists and I for one would like to explore the scene more in the future.
