Come see ChiIL Mama's own punk rock girl, 8 year old Sagezilla (AKA: Sagie Contagious) in her first show ever (at the Metro), playing guitar with her band, Octopie! She just picked up a guitar and learned her first chords this week at Girls Rock Camp. She'll be the one with blue hair in 8 tentacle-like braids.
Girls Rock Camp says:
During each session of Girls Rock! Chicago’s summer camps, 75 girls will pick up an instrument, form a band, write and record an original song, and perform it on stage—all in one week!
This Sunday, come see the newest class of GR!C grads - session one campers - in a performance at the legendary Metro. That’s 18 bands guaranteed to rock your socks off, PLUS young DJs fresh out of DJ camp. As always, this event is ALL ages. Bring the kids and let them dance in our reserved shorty section while sharing in the inspiration.
