From the years 1985 and 1995, there is a black hole in my musical appreciation. I was too busy at the time following the Grateful Dead and racking up 30 shows in those years to appreciate any current bands releasing what would become seminal albums in rock history. Among them was Liz’ 1993 album Exile in Guyville. I never realized how badass she was until later and even then didn’t give her much notice. That being said, last Monday was a revelation of sorts. She was charming, easy to look at (we are both the same age) and rocking. A very enjoyable introduction to her and her music. The packed audience at the Rex obviously weren’t listening the Dead during those years as they were loving every second of the show.

Happy New Year Pittsburgh! 2010 was such an incredible year for me. I sincerely want to thank the countless people who have supported me over the last twelve months. It means a lot. I am hoping that 2011 will be even better and to kick things off, I am giving away two tickets to this highly anticipated show, courtesy of the great people at Drusky Entertainment.

All you need to do to enter is email me at hughshows@comcast.net with the subject line ‘Liz Phair’. In the message, supply the full name you want for the folks at will call the night of the show which will be good for two tickets. Bring I.D. and remember this is a 21+ event. One entry per person.

This contest will run until Saturday January 8, when the winner will be randomly chosen and contacted.
