 The next evening 10/22 we made our way, once again to Radio! The ever-talented, Grownup Noise opened: (second Grownup Noise video) and following were Highly Personal Trash (video 1, video 2) and St. Helena – (video 1, video 2). South Carolina band, Slow Runner also played the night (live video) and I’m including them here because it was the release of their awesome music video created by Boston-local Chris March, check it out!
