Through the Roof premiere at Gateway Theatre, featuring music from Brainbow

From the Through the Roof website

In January of 2010, the C.H.E.K Institute teamed up with the Challenged Athletes Foundation, Overstock.com and many other key sponsors to help assist the first female paraplegic athlete to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa. On Sunday, January 31st, 2010, at approximately 5:30 PM, Erica Davis, a paraplegic since 2005, along with Tara Butcher, an amputee below the left-knee, reached the summit.

This successful project is designed to bring awareness to the capabilities of Challenged Athletes everywhere in that anyone can accomplish anything and everything they put their minds to. The preparation and climb were filmed by Captured Life Productions to be compiled into a documentary entitled Through the Roof, to be released in late Spring 2010.

It’s late spring now, and Donewaiting faves and fantastic motherfuckers Brainbow have music featured in the film and said film is premiering at the Gateway on Saturday. If you’re not going to Nelsonville, go to this, then go to Skully’s for the after-party where Brainbow, Main Street Gospel and EYE will rock your face off.

Shit’s gonna be through the roof maaaaan.
