South Beach may be notorious for volleyball and sunbathing undergraduates, but on Saturday, the Ohio University-maintained space hosted the third and final performance of Lobsterfest 2012.

Mindy Braasch was the first, as well as the youngest, performer at last night’s ACRN-sponsored Lobsterfest show at Casa Cantina.

Besides recently wrapping up her high school career, she also won Best Acoustic Act at the Athens High School Battle of the Bands in March.

On Friday, Braasch moved seamlessly through originals and a few covers, most notably Train’s "Drops of Jupiter." While the songs were expertly executed, renditions of Train songs were not quite what the Lobsterfest audience was expecting.
