#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. //

“Rock and roll fused with RAP, Punk/ska, DUBSTEP, and silky smooth R&B… plus a lot of other “uncategorizable” stuff too.”

>The YJJ’s are a Pittsburgh based reggae rap rock band who will be playing this Saturday (6/17) at 1:30pm at James Street Ballroom as part of the 24 band lineup for my #HughShows50 blowout. The bands are celebrating 50 Years of the Summer of Love by interpreting songs from the era and word is that yours truly will be joining these guys to play one of my favorite tunes for their set. Make sure everybody stops and look what’s going down when we take the stage. This show is free and all-ages. I want to thank the band for specifically playing the gig and for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks, fellas. I am beyond excited for Saturday and for the invite to share the stage with you all!

HughShows 14 Hour Plastic Technicolor Inevitable Summer Exploding Love Dream We are one month away from this all-day, ALL FREE show! The bands are working hard on learning covers from 1967 and with this eclectic of a lineup, it’s going to be so much fun. We would love if you joined us.

I am honored to have representatives from the Southern Poverty Law Center and the American Civil Liberties Union present who will be on hand to speak of their organizations and accept any donations, so leave a couple bucks available for them in between beers.

Get there early as Javerblöö will be opening up before Benefits take the stage in the Ballroom with a short set at Noon.

Much thanks to the wonderful people at James Street Gastropub and Speakeasy, Sound Beacon Productions, the Deutschtown Music Festival, Red Buffalo Illustration and especially the bands! James St. Gastropub and Speakeasy is located at 422 Foreland Street on the Northside
