Porch Party in the 'hood

It is a yearly tradition for our neighbouring 'hood to host musical groups on their front stairs. I was curious how this was going to work while we were reading about it on the posters.

A lovely group of people in a 6 block radious invites small musical acts to play on their front porches for a set. Their were so many wonderful performers. Other residents of the area did chalk drawings, music classes, kids crafts and poem sharing.

We attempted to participate in all. Kye and Marin made pan flutes and bought cds from two bands that they really enjoyed. Onion Honey felt like a alternative sort of folk band and The Short Films have very strong female vocals.

You can check out Onion Honey on their website or Facebook Page. Kye recommends the Zombie Love song.
