GIRLS ROCK NC

In the span of five days, you can witness at least two generations of Girls Rock NC's important work in making music a more equitable environment. On Friday night, forty women over the age of eighteen will conclude the first iteration of "Rock Roulette." A month ago, organizers sorted participants—some of whom play in acts you may have seen around town and some of whom have never really picked up an instrument—into eight bands. Their mission? Build a ten-minute set (with one optional cover tune) while turning friends into fans who want to donate to Girls Rock NC. Here, the groups, blessed with names such as Bambi's Moms and Sassmaster, deliver the jams, hoping to raise $10,000 collectively, which will be used to fuel Girls Rock's regular programming. That includes ten-week camps during the school year, like the one that ends Tuesday evening, when two young bands make their public debut. "It's a really neat marriage of our programming and fund-raising," says director Collier Reeves. —Grayson Haver Currin
