I’m going to go in backwards order for this one. Eternal Summers were the last band performing this past Friday night, and though they’re only a two-piece, they brought an astounding amount of energy to the Tea Bazaar. “Able To” seems to be their signature song, and I fortunately took a video of them playing […]
