Here is the introduction of a new feature to the GRN Apple Tree world. Planting Sounds will highlight bands throughout the area that are bringing eargasms around the office. The first two featured artists are Funeral Party and Jeremy Jay. Both of them played last Saturday at a secret location (pictures coming) much to the pleasure of our private audience. Funeral Party closed the night and really stole the show.
