Last Evening’s Open Floor…

Thanks to all who came out last night! Open Floor was a success- Toy Box Trio played a haunting and beautiful set.  I am glad I was able to catch it, I have been hearing about them for a while now.

Big thanks to Toy Box Trio members Harley, Dana and Nate!

Stay tuned for up-coming Open Floor events showcasing artist lectures, presentations, musical performances and more!

Have a great weekend,
