Red Bull Sound Select Presents: Blackbird Blackbird & Puro Instinct | Sayers Club | 1/28/15 [Concert Review]

Last year, I attended over half a dozen concerts that were organized by Red Bull Sound Select for their month long “30 Days In L.A.” initiative, and I have to admit that each of the shows I attended was extremely well curated.
