Yesterday at Culture Kings, Chester French played a free acoustic set for a crowd of cool kids and industry types. Chris O, owner of the high end clothes, sneaker shop, and artist collective said "The label contacted us and set it up." Ed Agudello, the Digital Account Director South East for Universal Records was there, as were some other suits.
