The Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls are throwing a couple of parties next week to support their amazing program. If you don’t know, now you know:
The summer camp is an intensive one-week day camp program. The organization currently offers two sessions every summer, serving a total of approximately 150 girls. Daily programming consists of instrument instruction (drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, vocals, DJ/turntables, and sound & recording), band practice, and workshops on a variety of topics, from songwriting to self-defense. Games and crafting activities (including making band t-shirts and buttons) are interspersed throughout the day.
Campers form bands on the first day, and during daily band practice they write music and lyrics collectively, assisted by band coaches. At the end of the week, the camp bands perform their original songs at a large-scale recital concert.
The shows will include some of our faves such as Pterodactyl and Parts & Labor. And, if you’re a 19+, they’ve got Ladies Workshops too!
Todd P & Horse+Dragon are also hosting a benefit for the Rock Camp on May 29th at Monster Island featuring Wild Yaks, Lady Magma, Hexa, & Beluga. We’re giving you 4 shows to celebrate the same cause here… so, pick one!!
