It's a good bet one or more of tomorrow's buzzed-about local musicians will be on stage for this, playing in his or her first band. Emily Frantz of Mandolin Orange, Ben Carr of Last Year's Men and the currently California-dwelling modern composer Andrew Weathers are just a small sample of respectable artists who first saw real stage time as local high schoolers, or younger. Among the eight bands, expect a bit of classic rock, a touch of funk and more than a little pop-punk. Most exciting, though, is a fairly even gender breakdown; can we thank Girls Rock NC for this? If these kids are any indication, the rock world won't remain male-dominated for long. And that can only be a good thing. —Corbie Hill
