Friday, June 17th - Girls Rock Detroit Rock Roulette Sign-up

Details Hi! Welcome to Girls Rock Detroit Rock Roulette sign-up! We are looking for local female-identified musicians to put on an awesome show to raise funds for Girls Rock Detroit summer camps. Sign-up will go until mid-April. We want as many participants as possible. Spread the word!

Event Details:
The main event will be hosted at Small's Bar 10339 Conant, Hamtramck on Friday, June 17th. Details to follow.

How Roulette works:
Please fill out the Google form posted in this event page below and you will be entered into a rock lotto. Once the sign-up period is closed, organizers will randomly place participants in bands to come up with 1-2 original songs specifically for the show.

Mixer:
There will be a potluck mixer hosted at the Trumbullplex 4210 Trumbull Ave, Detroit on Thursday, April 28th from 6-9PM for participants. Here your groups will be announced; you can mingle with your new bandmates, share good eats, and start brainstorming new material for the show :) It is also open hours for the Trumbullplex zine library, so feel free to stop by anytime between those hours and also check out some cool zines. If you cannot make it to the mixer, no worries. We will post the groups online and make sure everyone is in the loop!

If there are any questions, please contact Natalee or Kameryn at grdrockroulette@gmail.com

Girls Rock Detroit is a community organization dedicated to fostering girls’ creative expression, positive self-esteem and community awareness through rock music education and performance. By encouraging creativity, confidence and collaboration in a supportive environment, we strive to empower young women to challenge preconceived notions of what they can do, what they can become, and to become engaged members of our communities. We believe it is crucial that girls have access to equipment and instruction regardless of their socio-economic background, race or ethnicity. www.girlsrockdetroit.org
