Trunk Space Kicks Off Its Indie 500 Concert Series with Infectious and Intimate Performances

Colorful streamers, balloons, and even a donkey piñata adorned the digs at the Trunk Space Sunday, adding an extra festive -- not to mention silly -- air to what was a major occasion: the kickoff of Indie 500, the 10-day music festival celebrating the Grand Avenue music and art space's 10-year anniversary.

It's certainly an ambitious project, planned for months by Trunk Space co-owners Stephanie Carrico and JRC and unlike anything previously attempted by a Valley music venue. The Trunk Space's fans and regulars have been eagerly anticipating it, however, which explains the large crowd gathered for the kickoff on Sunday afternoon.
