Soundcheck: Avi Buffalo @ The Echo, 5/5/09
Part of an ongoing series (read their interview with LAist's Molly Bergen)
LAist first met Long Beach/Los Alamitos-natives Avi Buffalo last March at an LA-Underground-presented showcase that included local rising stars The Sweet Hurt, Ema and the Ghosts, Amnion, and Cobra Lilies.
Since then, the unsigned indie rock quartet have continued performing in Southern California, and in January landed on tastemaker Kevin Bronson's list of Bands to Watch: "Labels are already checking out this group of teenage prodigies... smitten by their sweet, adventuresome folk rock."
Tonight, Avi Buffalo continues their Tuesday night residency this month at The Echo with Shiloe, Nial Morgan, and bunny-eared Bobb Bruno. And their debut album, which was recorded at Amnion frontman Aaron Embry's recording studio in Highland Park, is now available.
Special thanks to Avi Buffalo and The Echo.
