#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. //

“It’s optimistic. Reflective. Powerful. Contemplative. Seething. Personal. Bold. Simply put, it’s a statement of purpose. Where The Lies Begin is the debut record from The Pollies—a collection of songs that defy categorization and signal the arrival of this oft-buzzed-about Muscle Shoals, AL group onto the national scene. With that, The Pollies are ready to be introduced the world. It’s been a long time coming, too. Anyone who knows this band knows that the journey to the release of this record has been, well, quite a journey. Where The Lies Begin acts as a snapshot of that time. To me and you, we call that “living life”. To The Pollies, it’s something worth singing about. Now, finally, you can hear why.”

I have really been enjoying the band’s debut, “Where The Lies Begin” since it’s release last month. Check The Pollies out on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Soundcloud. I want to thank Jay Burgess (Guitar/Vocals), Chris James (Bass) and Reed Watson (Drums) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks, fellas. Would love if a Pittsburgh date was in the future for you guys!
