Hello rocker bloggers!
I know! I have said it in earlier posts that I’ve been seriously lax in blogging lately (thanks full-time, rent paying job) but, I really want to get back to brining you the best and latest women in music news and reviews.
To try to get the ball rolling again (or drum drumming, pick strumming, whatever) let me tell you about Rain City Rock Camp for Girls.
I had the immense pleasure of volunteering for Rain City Rock Camp for Girls (formerly Seattle Rock Camp for Girls) and Ladies Rock Camp Seattle this summer. I must say, if ever you needed to be around a group of the most talented, strong, funny and dedicated femme-rockers, this is it. Fellow volunteers and I worked weeklong boosting girls’ self-esteem through music and as a side-effect, turned our own confidence up to 11. Girls Rock Camps were started in the Riot Grrrl DIY ethic focusing on women centered empowerment + music. Since 2001, rock camps have blossomed all over the US as a center for positive social change for a new generation of young women. Using rock music, local women mentor and remind girls that they have a voice, and should never be afraid to use it. Loud & Proud!
