Lafayette Square in downtown Buffalo tonight will be invaded by Indie Rock as New York City-based Ingrid Michaelson, whose songs may sound familiar from a few Old Navy commercials and episodes of "Grey's Anatomy" and "One Tree Hill," headlines the second week of Thursday at the Square.

In previous performances, Michaelson has joined in a duet or two with her opening act, alt-folk artist from Alabama A.A. Bondy.
In January, News Pop Critic Jeff Miers wrote: "Indie-rock types have fallen for Bondy, and hard. As is often the case with these sort of affairs, the smitten fan becomes willfully (and gleefully) unable to separate the music from the image of the man making that music."

A month later, when A.A. Bondy played at Mohawk Place, Jeff Miers called it "a magical evening." He shared this YouTube video on the Miers on Music blog to give readers a taste of the band:
Tonight's show at the Square will start around 5 p.m. and go until 9 p.m.
