#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 lot of the classic-rock-inspired music that’s come about over the past decade has sounded like a cut-rate version of the real thing. If we heard enough fake Led Zeppelins in the ’80s to last a lifetime, in more recent years, there have been enough ersatz Neil Youngs and Laurel Canyon clones to colonize space. Bud Bronson & the Good Timers, though, are different. Their music is not all dramatic delivery with no substance; instead, it’s the kind of triumphant power pop that feels like it’s coming from an honest place rather than being an affectation of style. For these guys, getting ahold of an older relative’s record collection was a beginning point, not a destination. That they have moved beyond obvious influences makes Bud Bronson & the Good Timers one of the most exciting rock-and-roll bands in Denver at this moment.”

— Tom Murphy, Westword

Bud Bronson & The Good Timers are an indie rock band making waves in Denver, CO and are in the midst of their Electrify The East Tour which brings them to Pittsburgh on Tuesday night (5/24) at Howler’s. I want to thank Ritchie Nitro AKA Brian Beer (Guitar/Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks, Brian. Definitely try one of those sandwiches, if you are drunk enough.
