Friendly People @ Seaside Tavern – 8:00 PM – minimal tech house

What started as one goosebumpin’ jam in a Cambridge living room led to first an eviction warning and then more rehearsals in less intrusive spaces. As the band grew, so did the sound, and now with seven minds and sets of limbs and seven million ideas the result is Friendly People – folk-infused indie rock, hand-crafted to make you feel at home.
