If Saturday's Afternoon Records anniversary celebration sounds like a "best of the Twin Cities" show--well, that should tell you a little something about Afternoon Records. What began four years ago as a basement project for then-18-year-old music biz prodigy Ian Anderson has blossomed into a big, shiny indie rock machine churning out some top local talent: Haley Bonar (pictured), the God Damn Doo Wop Band, Anderson's own Aneuretical and One for the Team, A Night in the Box, and more than a dozen others. Just about every Afternnon band will be on hand for this two-show event. In particular, the late show, featuring Bonar, the GDDWB, and Ela, is a can't-miss affair.
