On Sunday, June 30, at Trustus Theatre, a host of area musicians paid tribute to Aaron Graves. The leader of the locally beloved indie pop band Those Lavender Whales and a fixture of Columbia’s music scene died on June 5 after a five-year battle with a brain tumor at age 33. Performers included members of area groups The Lovely Few, Lunch Money, The Restoration, NUMBTONGUE, Barnwell, Can’t Kids, and The Post-Timey String Band. They shared stories about Graves and played his songs along with some by others that felt attached to his memory. Proceeds went to his family.
