#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. //

I featured the Philly band last February as they sold out Club Cafe. They return tomorrow with a brand spankin’ new video under their belt that’s a sort of tease of their first full length release, “June Found a Gun”, that drops June 1st. Check it!

The Kalob Griffin Band Club Cafe
Saturday, February 4, 2012 Southside

I consider myself so lucky to be in the very dubious position I am in to be on the receiving end of publicists, record labels, or musician’s email lists. I get a ton of requests to showcase a band that’s coming through Pittsburgh to maybe preview, shoot or mention the gig. I don’t think I have ever been publicly jaded about it. Frankly, I never appreciated other people moaning about a influx of demos, or badly worded bios, or worse, bad music sent their way. For me, it’s an honor and a pleasure to flirt with the possibility of helping out a band I never heard of and in return…well, we’ll see.

That said, The Kalob Griffin Band is playing Club Cafe next Friday. They hail from Philly. Oh, and I found out that I actually like them! Not settling for Kalob himself to be answering alone, they have been kind enough to participate in this extensive edition of First/Last.

Thanks for the contact fellas. Been really diggin’ your music.
