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

VARIOUS - These Great Stars Are On Fire & Fury

"The postwar explosion of independent rhythm and blues record companies included an extremely important group of African American-owned firms that played hardball with the big boys long before Berry Gordy established Motown. Heading the list were Vee-Jay Records in Chicago, Don Robeys hard-boiled Duke/Peacock empire in Houston, and Bobby Robinsons Harlem-based Fury and Fire logos. Robinson accrued his early industry experience from behind the counter of Bobbys Record Shop, located down the block from the Apollo Theatre. The store opened for business on August 20, 1946, and it became a gathering place for record buyers and music luminaries alike. Stars would wander down between their Apollo shows, and label honchos would stop by to see what was selling. Along the way, Robinson learned the ingredients that went into a hit." - Waterfront Records
