A camp run completely by volunteer musicians and other women active in the creative community, Girls Rock Denver aims to teach girls how to play music while building self-esteem and a sense of inclusion in a still-male-dominated industry. And this showcase of brand-new bands and original songs is for everyone to see — not just the parents of campers.
“It’s about demonstrating that as a community, we support girls taking chances and being creative and being more than just spectators in the rock-and-roll arena,” says Girls Rock Denver director Katie Rothery.
The Girls Rock Denver 2013 Camper Showcase begins at 2 p.m. at the Oriental Theater, 4335 West 44th Avenue. Tickets are $5 at the door, with proceeds going to next year’s camp. For more information on the camp and the showcase, visit girlsrockdenver.org.
