Bringing You the Best Indie Femme Rockers
Giving Back to Women in the Community
Now Girls Rock & Girls Rule Needs Your Help to Get Back on the Road
2008 Tour Fundraiser, Feb. 9 at Hanks Saloon!
Girls Rock & Girls Rule will hold its first tour fund raiser on Saturday February 9, 2008 at Hankâ€™s Saloon in Brooklyn , NY . Staying true to the GRGR tradition they will offer fans an incredible night of fantastic femme Rock n Roll! Starring core tour bands, Marisa Mini, RewBee, Loki the Grump, and G-spot. Additionally, to continue their mission to bring exposure to the best independent female rockers on the scene today they will introduce two new NYC performers to the GRGR family; Americas Sweetheart and bluhammock recording artist Swati. GRGR emcee extraordinaire (and honorary girl) Garry Novikoff will open and host the event. The doors open at 7:00pm and the music begins promptly at 7:30pm.
Suggested donation is $5.00, and donors will receive a Free Girls Rock & Girls Rule T-shirt while supplies last. The fabulous and multi-talented Rew and Marisa will even custom design it for you on site! Proceeds will be used to help the tour get back on the road in 2008 where they will once again storm the East Coast bringing recognition to dozens of artists and giving back to women and girls in the community.
GRGR began as an annual event in December 2002, and has grown into a multi-city tour. This yearâ€™s tour doubled in size from year one and featured four core traveling bands from NYC and more than 35 female rockers in 12 different cities. GRGR stormed the Northeast in August and September â€“ heading north from Washington, DC to DE, MD, PA, RI, MA and NY. Along the way, phenomenal femmes captivated audiences with their all-out live performances groovinÂ´ on everything from pop-rock to punk, to metal to hardcore! As part of their mission GRGR donates a portion of proceeds to non profit organizations supporting women and girls. In 2007 GRGR benefited Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls and the funds raised and donated will be used to create a Girls Rock & Girls Rule scholarship that will send a girl to WMRC this coming summer as well as provide a guitar and amp for the camp.
What can you expect at a GRGR show? No retouched pop princesses, but ladies rockinâ€™ and raginâ€™, snarlinâ€™ and screaminâ€™, having a great time and making fantastic original music. They are fierce, independent, filled with passion and presence, playing songs of triumph, love, sex, politics, fun and freedom, and anything else you can imagine, bringing heart and their own unique viewpoint on whatever they happen to be singing about.
