Friday, January 24 – Matthew Mayfield @ Eddie’s Attic
On his decision to pursue music, Matthew says, “When I was 9, I decided I was either going to be a bank robber/surfer or play in a rock n roll band. I’m not brave enough to ride the big waves and not radical enough to rob banks, so here I am with a guitar in my hand. I think my mother is very happy with that call.”
