The Peach District is hosting a fantastic, wonderful event which will take place on May 15, 2010. The event is a rollout extravaganza for the completion of our latest project, the Gracehaven Compilation CD: And Female and Brave.
The album is a 17 track gold-mine of local Columbus music - you will want to have this album as it not only benefits Gracehaven safe home, (all proceeds from CD sales and event sales go to Gracehaven), it contains some of the best local music from the best local bands around.
You can download the CD here: http://gracehavenhouse.bandcamp.com or pick one up at the event!
