Seth Wenger, Constie Brown & Zoe Brown @ RSVP

Tuesday marked the first official day of the 2010 Mission Creek Festival, with ten performances spread across three venues. Despite simultaneous shows occurring at separate locales, having each of these venue positioned within a block of the pedestrian mall makes the festival feel surprisingly consolidated.
