Kentucky hardcore legends BY THE GRACE OF GOD will be playing a reunion show to benefit their friend and fellow Louisville hardcore scene staple Adele Collins on Saturday October 16th, 2004 in Louisville, KY at Headliners Music Hall. The show will also offer the first chance for fans to purchase the new BY THE GRACE OF GOD collection CD being released in November by Initial Records. COLISEUM (featuring Ryan Patterson of BLACK CROSS, THE NATIONAL ACROBAT) will be performing as well.
Collins, who has been diagnosed with a rare condition called Pseudotumor Cerebri, has been a longtime member of the Louisville hardcore family. Having operated her self-financed zine/label I STAND ALONE for a number of years as well as promoting shows in Louisville, Collins has become both a friend and supporter of not just local bands, but bands from around the world.
