The 7th annual AURA Music & Arts Festival was one of the best thus far, bringing eclectic musicians and tight-knit communities together for an intimate weekend earlier in March. One of the many highlights from the weekend included The Heavy Pets “Tribute To The 80s.” You can listen to that entire set here.
