2011 Ladies Rock Camp is happening February 18-20

You know those rock camps for girls that have sprung up all across the country?  The ones that teach young girls musical instruments and form them into bands?  Atlanta’s Ladies Rock Camp is a version for adults.  Over the course of one weekend in February, women ages 19 and up can either learn a new instrument or sharpen their existing skills.  Bands will be formed and a final showcase will be held at The Five Spot on February 20th.

It’s not just adult escapism, though.  The Ladies Rock Camp is also a fundraiser for Girls Rock Camp ATL, which will be held for girls between the ages of 10 and 16 this summer.  The tuition raised in February will support the week long summer version.  It’s a good program that encourages expression and self-esteem in the participating kids, so the $350 tuition is a valuable contribution as much as it is a chance learn some music and have a little fun.
