Wow. For all of those who rock, and are feminists, we salute you. Ever dream of rocking out on stage? This event is put on by Soumya Natarajan and, although I won’t be attending, I will be going to the Feminist Rock Camp Showcase on Sunday, August 22 (Fort Street Cafe, Victoria, Coast Salish Territory, from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm). The camp itself is happening from late afternoon on Friday the 20th until Sunday the 22nd. I happen to know that the folks that are already signed up are ranging widely in there musical expertise and the event flyer notes explicitly that attendees don’t need any prior musical experience to be part of this rock extravaganza:
A weekend-long rock camp for all adults, all genders, over 19. An experience like no other! Learn an instrument, form a band, write a song and perform like a rock star! No prior music experience necessary.
