The Good Graces EP Release Party

I will be performing with The Good Graces in support of our new EP 'Bring On the Tambourines' at Kavarna in Decatur, this Saturday, September 26, at 8pm. The EP is getting great reviews out in the blogosphere and we enjoy performing the songs. We'll also have a drummer sitting in with us for the show (thanks Donna!).

This is also the CD release party for our friends Chickens & Pigs, and our friend Lindsay Appel will also be performing. As well as other surprise guests.

So a great night of music all the way around. No cover. Come as you are.

The Good Graces are Kim Ware, John McNicholas, and Jim Combs.
