Bottom Lounge, Chicago, IL
During Girls Rock! Chicago’s summer camp, 80 girls will pick up an instrument, form a band, write and record an original song, and perform it on stage—all in one week! Join us as we introduce the newest class of GR!C grads and hear 20 new bands and DJs guaranteed to rock your socks off. All proceeds benefit Girls Rock! Chicago.
Girls Rock! Chicago is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to fostering girls’ creative expression, positive self-esteem and community awareness through rock music. We are committed to educating girls ages 8-16 about the musical, technical, and creative aspects involved in musicianship, because we believe that young girls are rarely encouraged to explore self-expressive creative outlets and are less likely to be given access to musical and technical instruction or equipment. We believe that rock music can be a crucial tool in allowing young women to respond to preconceived notions of what they can do and what they can become.
