Folk-pop singer/songwriter Caroline Smith began her music career in a similar fashion to that of Mason Jennings and Elliot Smith — with a residency at the 400 Bar. This led to meeting the fine people that would later put "the good night sleeps" in Caroline Smith and the Good Night Sleeps including Arlen Peiffer, Jesse Schuster and David Earl. Their debut Backyard Tent Set was released in 2008 with a live album to fill the gap between that release and their follow up Little Wind, which came out in September of 2011.
After an ambitious tour schedule for the release of their sophomore album, the band is happy to take a break and play a big show for the hometown at First Avenue.
Songs performed: "Tank Top," "Strong Shoulders," and "The Child Of Moving"
