Avi Buffalo 3/29/09 - University of Southern California (KSCR Music Fest), Los Angeles, CA.

Admittedly, I didn't really know that much about Avi Buffalo before I saw them at this mini-music festival recently. The name was familiar, and I remembered reading someplace and being surprised to hear that all/most (?) of the band is still in high school (bet that makes for some interesting conflicts playing at most of 21+ clubs in town, heh)

Oddly enough, I first heard one of Avi Buffalo's songs as a cover, when The Flying Tourbillon Orchestra performed "Where's Your Dirty Mind?" as a part of Radio Free Silverlake's "Undercovered" night (which, of course, can be found here)It was interesting to find out that this song was one of Avi Buffalo's, and I made a mental note to try and catch one of their shows one day.

Coincidentally, KSCR Fest happened to fall on the same day I was supposed to record another show (which fell through) I must confess that I felt a bit odd walking on the campus of USC, coming from a Bruin family (the rivalry remains strong) It was a nice little event though, and the Founder's Park was a great setting (if they have more shows there I may consider going back.

This performance is just a very short but sweet acoustic one (just Avi and Rebecca) that showcases some of their material. Sound levels are somewhat extreme though - that's just the way the show unfolded.
