Avi Buffalo @ The Troubadour 05/01/10
To say that it's been a good year for Avi Buffalo would be an understatement. They've managed to pull off what most teenagers only fantasize about it. Graduate high school? Check. Sign to Sub Pop? Check. Tour the country? Check. Sellout the Troubadour for their record release party? Check and check.
If the Buffalos were nervous when they took the stage last Saturday night they didn't show it. Despite the fact that the Troubadour was packed to the rafters with friends, family, and what appeared to be their entire high school class from Long Beach, these kids took the stage looking like seasoned pros. "This is like a talent show," keyboardist, Rebecca Coleman commented mid-set. Talent was one thing that these guys were not running low on. When the sugary, sweet bars of their first number "Summer Cum" floated over the crowd, Avi Buffalo reminded everyone why they've been a buzz band in Los Angeles for so long.
