#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. //

“Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds is an eight-piece powerhouse that puts a modern spin on classic soul. The band is led by Arleigh Kincheloe (Sister Sparrow), whose astoundingly powerful voice and sly demeanor make for a spellbinding presence onstage. She is backed by the mighty force of The Dirty Birds, a flock of seven men who masterfully lay down thundering grooves and soaring melodies. While each of the Birds are capable of lighting up the stage with jaw-dropping displays of musicianship, it’s clear they’re focused on delivering the band’s infectious music as a single entity. Simply put, the band’s live show is explosive.”

Check out the band at their official Website, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Tumblr, BandCamp and SoundCloud. The band recently released their killer “Fight” EP and are on tour now, stopping in Pittsburgh Friday night at The Rex with support from the Cait Cuneo Band. My thanks to Sister Sparrow herself, Arleigh Kincheloe (Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks, Arleigh. So cool you have family roots in town. I’m totally with your Dad because I too loved growing up here.
