Using Pygazebo with Gazebo

I have a 2d Vector from my simulation in Gazebo that I'd like to plot in realtime using Python. I'm trying to use Pygazebo to receive this vector. I have Gazebo v7.4 installed (no ROS) and I'm using Python 2.7.12. I've already looked at the Pygazebo documentation, numerous other questions/codes but I'm not able to achieve this. At this point, this is what I have at the pygazebo end:

import pygazebo

def callback(data):
     message = pygazebo.msg.vector2d_pb2.Vector2d(data)
     print('Received message:', message.x)

manager = pygazebo.Manager(('localhost', 11345))

On the gazebo end I have (just shown the relevant part of the code):

public: transport::PublisherPtr pub;
//Some code ...
public: void Load(physics::ModelPtr _parent, sdf::ElementPtr /*_sdf*/)
  transport::NodePtr node(new transport::Node());
  pub = node->Advertise<msgs::Vector2d>("~/vector2d");

public: void OnUpdate(const common::UpdateInfo &_info)
  ignition::math::Vector2d vect(5,5);
  msgs::Vector2d _msg;
  msgs::Set(&_msg, vect);

Am I on the right track with this? The gazebo code doesn't throw any errors but I seem to be getting the following error when I run the Python code:

        Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 8, in <module>
