Girls Rock! Featuring Girls Rock Camp Toronto
Family Day Mon. Feb 18 11AM FREE (advance ticket reqd)

In this empowering coming-of-age doc, follow a group of young women from eight to 18 as they take a break from social pressures to sweat, scream, and wail on their instruments at a girls rock’n’roll camp. The girls have a week to select a band, an instrument they may have never played before, and write a song. Under the guidance of indie rockers like Carrie Brownstein from Sleater-Kinney they learn to embrace their voice and the transformative power of musical expression.

Followed by a special live performance by Girls Rock Camp Toronto!

Advance tickets are FREE and available to pick up at Soundscapes or here

JACKIE SHANE - Any Other Way

"Recognized by genre aficionados as one of the greatest singers and most riveting stage presences in soul music, Jackie Shane has remained largely unknown outside Toronto, where her career briefly flowered in the 1960s. Ms. Shane is a star without parallel—a pioneer of transgender rights born in a male body, living her entire life as a woman at a time when to do so seemed unthinkable.

Any Other Way is the first artist-approved collection of Ms. Shane’s work, collecting all six of her 45s and every highlight from the legendary 1967 live sessions at the Sapphire Tavern, including three mind blowing, previously-unreleased tracks. Any Other Waymarks Jackie Shane’s first communication with the public in nearly half a century. Rob Bowman's extensive liner notes tell, for the first time ever, Ms. Shane’s story in her own words, copiously illustrated with never-before-seen pictures from a career and life unlike any other." - Numero
