A new era for Atlanta music is upon us. On Saturday, February 16, 2008, Eyedrum hosts the first fundraising event for Girls’ Rock Camp (ATL). The bill includes something for everyone; CAN CAN, a dance-punk two-piece fronted by Patrick A. formerly of The Love Drunks, The Holland Dutch, an indie rock band featuring former members of The Moto-Litas and The Penetrators, Trina and Tomi from the rock and roll band Three5Human, and Athens Boys Choir, a spoken-word/hip-hop artist from Athens, GA. Doors open at 9:00pm and the show begins at 9:30pm. Admission is $7.00 for the general public and free for all Eyedrum members. The show is all-ages and proceeds will go towards establishing Girls’ Rock Camp (ATL) programming.
Girls’ Rock Camp (ATL) is a 5-day summer day camp where girls (only) learn instrument instruction and participate in workshops such as self-defense, zine and screen- printing, songwriting, and body image. The workshops aim to support and encourage participants on their journeys of self-discovery and artistic expression. Over the course of 5-days campers also form rock bands and learn basic band, teamwork, group creativity, and communication skills. At the end of camp, the bands play their very own rock showcase, which will be open to the public. Girls’ Rock Camp (ATL) is open to all girls from ages 10 to 18. No previous musical experience is required, and all skill levels are welcome. Camp organizers aim to have instruments (guitars, basses, keyboards, and drums) available for campers if they do not have their own.
