#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. //

As many of you probably don’t know, I freelance around town for various publications and whatnot. I get other assignments besides concert photography and on this particular night I was covering an event at The GAP in Shadyside for Maniac Magazine. It just so happens that there was a band there called Silence So Loud from Ohio. I never heard of them before but they were very nice guys and sounded good considering the awkward position they were in playing as people meandered into and throughout the store. I was told later that Ben Hardt was doing a similar gig at The GAP in Robinson. Nothing against the boys from Akron but I wish I would have hit the other store instead, just because I am more familiar with Ben’s stuff. More photos here.
