Meetup Description: From the Girls Rock NC website:
Girls Rock NC is a nonprofit organization that runs programs that encourage girls to be confident, creative members of their communities. Girls make bands, have workshops in teamwork, body confidence, zine-making, DIY clothing, recording, Tech Talk, songwriting and more, and are supported as they speak up and share their experiences as girls. We're part of the international Girls Rock Camp Alliance, helping each other stay true to our mission--empowering girls! Close to 1,500 girls around the globe will have the rock camp experience this coming summer-- this is a true feminist movement that you can be a part of!

From Stephanie:
I saw the Girls Rock! movie in June and was really moved by the impact this day camp can have on the girls involved. Originally started in Portland, Girls Rock has spread across the land and has been in NC now for (I think) 5 years. As a day rock camp for girls, the girls form bands, learn all aspects of being in a band, write a song - and then perform together. This event is the concert in which all the girls' bands are performing. This means that the quality of the music may vary (some of the girls may have never touched an instrument before camp), but they all play with heart and enthusiasm. It's all in the spirit of empowering girls and teaching them they should still do something, even if they aren't perfect at it.

The show starts at 7, but we'll meet outside at 6:30. I'll post more details closer to the date. Tickets are a suggested donation of $5. I have no idea if it will sell out, if you are worried, you can get tickets in advance from Cat's Cradle. They have them online also for a $1.30 fee.

If you are going to our already posted, fantastic Solterra potluck, consider coming by after!
