Poof Art & Pollens on the Roof!

Last Sunday I had 2 local bands play on the rooftop of 712- a perfect summer's evening with friends and music. I'd never heard either band before and they are both fantastic! Thanks to my friend Benny for helping set it up!
Poof Art is John and Sam Albert, a brother and sister indie pop group that will make your heart melt. Facebook page here:

Pollens got it all: catchy beats, tribal drums, dynamic Dirty Projector's-like girl and boy harmonies- a great combination and one of the best local performances I've seen in awhile. They have an EP called Pollens EP out- you can download it and name your price here:
