Girls Rock NC is a Durham-based nonprofit organization for girls ages 7-15 that focuses on empowering them through creative expression. Through their after school program, girls learn how to play instruments, write songs and attend workshops in body confidence. Fall’s program will include ten sessions, which will be each monday 3:45-5:45PM from September 17-November 19.
The programming this year will be headed up by Heather McEntire (Bellafea, Mount Moriah, founder of Holidays for Quince Records) and Collier Reeves (co-founder of Homegrown City Farms), both veteran GRNC staff.
If you’ve aged out of the camper range and still want to get involved, visit GirlsRock.org for ways to volunteer and donate.
The excellent Chapel Hill music label Holidays For Quince Records, run by Heather McEntire, Jenks Miller, and Hannah Smith, has just released a free compilation for download. Titled Holidays For Quince Records, Compilation Vol. 1, it features 12 tracks, some new and/or previously unreleased, from the label’s varied acts, including the riot-grrrl-meets-sixties-pop of Violet Vector and the Lovely Lovelies, doom metal guitar (and bass and drum) heroes Caltrop, the always ferocious Double Barrel Benefit vets Bellafea, and an epic 16-minute-long track from experimental metal group In The Year Of The Pig, among others. You can stream or download the compilation here and, if you like what you hear, head on over to the HFQ store, buy some records, and support one of the area’s finest cultural institutions
