I recently made a mix made up of all Pittsburgh bands for a friend of mine to ‘turn’ him on to the incredible music scene we are lucky enough to have here. Out of about 18 tunes, he said to me that he was really digging the disc but that one song by the ‘Harlans’ was just killer. He loved how it just exploded mid-song. Yep, that’s pretty much what hooked me to.

The band is opening for Vetiver this Friday, which I guarantee will turn out to be great night. The next night, there will be the debut of The Harlan Duo, James and Carrie acoustic, for a benefit show, which IMO sounds just as awesome. They were both cool enough to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks a lot guys. FWIW-my first concert was The Eagles as well and I like to think I still have my cred. And to have Sir Paul as your first is definitively worth bragging about.
