#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 was nothing like ‘Pittsburgh Indie Music Love’ circa 2005. I was introduced to many amazing bands around then that has made me the musical fanatic I am now. I am what you call an ‘Old Head’ for a reason. I was at and reporting about shows while many of today’s fans were listening to Shins CDs in their dorm rooms. Case in point, Dios Malos. Putting out a couple essential albums, they have unfortunately fallen off my radar until late last year. I repeat. Putting out a couple ESSENTIAL ALBUMS. If you haven’t heard Dios, you are doing yourself an injustice. Thankfully, Dios’ Joel Jerome has recently recorded a bunch of Beck covers and released a collection called ‘When Beck Was Cool, Vol.1‘ that has me reminiscing for times gone by. Joel was cool enough to take some time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks Joel. Wassup brutha? Pittsburgh’s waiting!
