Cuz Chix Can Shred...

Got this email today.....only wish we could be there. If any of you bloggers are in the SF Bay Area, go check it out. It will be a good time for a good cause...Rock On!

Hey folks,
Wanted to let you know that Shane and I are throwing a benefit concert for our documentary about the Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp For Girls (http://www.girlsrockcamp.org/) on June 15 at Bottom of the Hill (in San Francisco). It’s gonna be an awe-inspiring mixture of 12 and 13 year old girls shredding madly and some of the hottest local bands that feature women.
We kick things off with The Stingrays, a band made up of famed producer (and punk rock drummer for Crime) Henry Rosenthal’s 13 and 16 year old kids, followed by another preteen/teen girl band, Peach Fuzz. After that, a blinding journey through rock genres from Inspect Her Gagdet, a punk band heading out on the Warped tour, to Rykarda Parasol and her love-child of PJ Harvey and Nick Cave American Gothic band. Heading the night will be the legendary queercore band Tribe 8 (who’ve reunited for the show) and Doll, Doll and Doll Show (women have taken over Gun and Doll Show for the night), two bands that have been f**king s**t up for the better part of a decade.
We’ll also show our trailer, which many of you have been positively yearning to see!
Also note that the show is all-ages, and families are urged to come! One of the really inspiring things about the Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls is seeing how all these cool families come out and rock together, something you rarely see here in San Francisco.
Also, this might sound delusional, but we’re getting coverage in both the Guardian and the Weekly, so you might actually wanna buy tix in advance at http://www.ticketweb.com/ if you wanna be sure to get in.
I’ll leave you with the words of Leslie Mah of Tribe 8, from an email she sent out to their fans:
“After seeing the trailer for this doc featuring 7 year old girls playing guitar, I was convinced in true punk rock style that we need to dredge ourselves up to play one more benefit... After all I've been thinking about what exactly my generation is leaving behind for all up and coming girls and boys, especially young women, to endure, i.e. The whole Bush stacking the courts with anti-choice homophobes etc...So anyway, creating future rockerbabes is my answer. Please show your support, let's show these aspiring rockers the world needs to be ruled by them.”
Spread the word!
