#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. //

There is a cool benefit show going down tomorrow (Saturday, August 19) at James Street Gastropub for the American Heart Association featuring a bunch of blog faves including Heavy Chest, Essential Machine and The Petals. Opening the night will be an acoustic set from some members of reggae jamsters Brahctopus. I want to thank lead ‘Brah’ Ethan Kovalcik (Ukulele/Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

My favorite thing about Pittsburgh is how the local music scene is coming together. It’s really starting to flourish for all genres of music. Everyone is working together to set up gigs, festivals and we’re starting to see a huge burst of combining the visual arts with the music. It’s a great time to be a Pittsburgh Musician!

Thanks, Ethan. Should be a sweet time tomorrow. So tell me how you define ‘minor’ run in?
