For the third time, my daughter will be attending the Girls Rock! DC summer camp. The camper showcase is again at the 9:30 Club, at 11 am on Saturday, August 14. You should come.
From the site:
During the week, campers receive small group instruction on electric guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, turntables or vocals, form bands, collaborate to write an original song and ROCK out the stage. Campers learn about the history of women in rock, gender and cultural identity, band merchandise and promotion, conflict resolution and other skills young women need to take over the world of rock!OK, so I'm kind of biased, but, really, this is much more than a kids' orchestra recital. You'll see amazing displays of (young) woman-hood, excitement, and just flat-out esteem, more damned esteem than you've ever seen in one place before. Plus, last year they opened the bar, so, hey, beer, too! Admission is $10, and there will be all sorts of schwag for sale. Plus, just about every local indie rocker type will be there--it's a hip scene, for sure.
