Are you 21 & up and don’t have plans this Sunday, May 5? Well, now you do. Go to Poison Girl with all your friends and order some beverages. Proceeds from that day will go towards Girls Rock Camp Houston. Some of us will even be there from 5 PM – 10 PM to answer questions about our camp and volunteer opportunities.
Q: WHAT IS RIOT GRRRL?
A: Riot Grrrl is an underground feminist punk rock movement that originally started in the early to mid-1990s, in Washington, DC and the greater Pacific Northwest, especially Olympia, Washington and Portland, Oregon. It is often associated with third-wave feminism which is sometimes seen as its starting point. Riot Grrrl bands often address issues such as rape, domestic abuse, sexuality, racism, patriarchy, and female empowerment. In addition to a music scene and genre, riot grrrl is a subculture: zines, the DIY ethic, art, political action, and activism are part of the movement.
To honor the legacy of Riot Grrrl, Girls Rock Camp Houston is throwing a dance party!!!
Featured acts include:
The Bikini Killers
(Yes, a Bikini Kill tribute band featuring members of local bands Something Fierce, The Pastees, Vivian Pikkles & the Sweethearts Uber Alles, The Busy Kids and Ex-Girlfriends)
(Playing your favorite grrrl tunes and more to keep your booty shaking all night.)
A rock star photo booth will be on site and the GRCH team will be on hand with tons of giveaways.
More details TBA.
