#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. //

“Rhett Miller is the front man and main songwriter of the hard-charging rock ‘n’ roll quartet the Old 97’s, as well as an accomplished solo artist. In addition to his nine studio albums with the 97’s (most recently The Grand Theatre Volume One and The Grand Theatre Vol. 2 in 2011), he has released four solo albums; 1989’s Mythologies, 2002’s The Instigator, 2006’s The Believer, and 2009’s Rhett Miller. Miller is set to release his first live covers album, The Interpreter Live at Largo, on November 22, 2011 on his own recently established label Maximum Sunshine Records.”

As previously mentioned, I am a huge fan of Rhett and his music. His new solo album “The Dreamer” is being released tomorrow and I want to thank him for taking a few minutes to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks, Rhett. Looking forward to the gig this week.

I am trying to think of how many times I have seen Rhett Miller, either with the Old 97’s or solo? I think it’s seven but could be more. His music means a whole hell of a lot to me and I am really excited to see him again, playing a solo gig with his new band backing band ‘The Serial Lady Killers’ this Wednesday. Out of the dozens of band portraits I have produced, for some reason this has always been one of my favorites.
