I have mentioned many times that one of main purposes of producing a music blog in Pittsburgh for me is to help expose and spread the word of bands who are coming through town or live here. With the ever popularity of Kickstarter, there seems to be endless supply of content to ‘pimp’. One such effort is now being undertaken by Pittsburgh based musician Guiseppe Capolupo, who is trying to finish his debut album with his band Gypsy & His Band of Ghosts
. The goal is fairly realistic and you can easily help by donating here
Guiseppe was cool enough to take a few minutes in return to participate in this ‘pledge’ edition of First/Last.

Any thoughts, experiences about
Pittsburgh has a very hard-working family of bands that people don’t see at
first glance…Bear Cub, Caleb Pogyor and the Talkers, The Williams Band, and
many more…The city has a way of captivating the travelling soul of weary
wanderers like myself, and it’s amazing how easy it is to discover great things
in the city when you purposefully lose yourself in its narrow roads!
Thanks Guiseppe, I really hope the funding comes through man.
The lead singer of this local band used to play drums in the ‘Christian metalcore’ band Haste The Day. I think he said it was his new band’s fourth ever gig? Regardless, after the second song he asked that the audience move up to the lip of the stage, a request that puts fear into any photographer’s heart.
