Friday evening was packed full of live performances downtown for the early birds, including an in-store performance at Love Garden.

Paper Buffalo commemorated the sale of newly-released tapes at the record store by playing their EP the whole way through. This is a band full of younger musicians, but their tunes can make them sound wise beyond their years. Their arrangements are nothing short of impressive, and when combined with an exceedingly good natured set of musicians, it gives us hope for the newer crop of musicians in town.
