CD would make a great gift

Heading to Best Buy for some holiday shopping? Don't forget to pick up a copy of the 2010 OC Music Awards "Best of Orange County" compilation proudly displayed in support of local music at each checkout register. It makes a great stocking-stuffer or under-the-tree item.

The compilation features 14 tracks from 2010 Award recipients including Sugar Ray, Atreyu, Thrice, Free the Robots, Dusty Rhodes and The River Band and Blok, to name a few. A portion of sales from the compilation benefit Music for a Cure, (http://www.musicforacure.org) the awards' official charity, furthering their efforts to provide music therapy programs at children's hospitals. You can also download the compilation online at http://www.facebook.com/ocmusicawards.
