#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. //

“Hailing from a small suburban town just east of Pittsburgh, Lucky Lad Green started as a fresh start for five musicians wanting to bring something exciting to the local music scene. With influences ranging from Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly to Lamb of God, Pantera, Sublime and the Descendants, the fivesome combines loads of musical talent into a high intensity live show that appeals to a vast array of audiences. LLG has solidified a loyal local following after the release of their self titled EP and now aim to bring their brand of Celtic punk to a new level by rocking out wherever there may be a few amps and a drum kit set up.”

Lucky Lad Green is an ‘Irish folk punk-rock’ band from Windber, PA. They have a few shows coming up in April and I want to thank Ryan McDonald (Multi-Instrumentalist) and Stephen Boyle (Guitar) for taking the time to participating in this edition of First/Last.
