Experimental critical darling Ashley Paul performs free show at Gallery at Avalon Island

You may not know Ashley Paul's experimental lilt by name, but to have this talent perform a free show Friday, March 21 at Gallery at Avalon Island, you just had to know the Civic Minded 5 were at least somewhat involved, and it comes as no surprise that this is yet another exciting collaboration between the critically-acclaimed show purveyors and Accidental Music Festival.
