#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. //

“World Party is a British pop/alternative rock band which is the vehicle for the songwriter Karl Wallinger. After a stint as musical director of a West End performance of The Rocky Horror Show, Wallinger joined a funk band called Out, before joining Mike Scott’s Waterboys in 1984 to record the album A Pagan Place. After 1985’s This Is the Sea, Wallinger departed to form World Party.”

Check out the band’YouTubes official Website, Facebook, MySpace, , Last.fm and Twitter. It would be impossible for me to try to convey the importance World Party has had on me. I can say they are my favorite band of all-time and seeing them play a few times over the years has been a defining highlight of going to shows for me (and I see A LOT of shows). Karl Wallinger has been gradually returning to performing recently and I am humbled and honored that he would take the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks so much, Karl. Really, this is such a highpoint for me. Hopefully, I will be seeing you again very soon.
