Girls Rock NC is a nonprofit organization that runs programs that encourage girls to be confident, creative members of their communities. Girls make bands, have workshops in teamwork, body confidence, zine-making, DIY clothing, recording, Tech Talk, songwriting and more. During the two week camp, these talented girls will form bands, write a song, and then perform it on stage. The first showcase is tonight at the Pinhook, starting at 6pm with a $5 suggested donation.
