Last Night: Buxton & The Tontons at Discovery Green

Buxton, the Tontons Discovery Green May 24, 2012

I was pretty proud of myself Thursday night: I managed to kill three birds with one stone. I'd never seen local darlings Buxton or the Tontons live before, and I'd never been to a concert at Discovery Green, either. Thanks to UH-Downtown's Thursday Concerts series at the park, I was able to scratch all three at once off of the lengthy to-do list that I've been etching into my steering wheel at red lights.

Conveniently, it couldn't have been a more gorgeous evening for free live music outdoors. There was a strong, persistent breeze howling through downtown that seemed to threaten thunderstorms, but the fast-moving clouds overhead didn't do anything but provide some picturesque matting behind the skyscrapers.
