There at The Yogurt Spot you'll be able to catch acoustic sets by Akina Adderly, Adrian and The Sickness and Girls Rock Camp band 'Rank N File". That should be interesting.
Girls rock camp is a very important part of Austin and the Austin Music scene. It is especially important for girls who face stereotypes that they can't rock it like the guys can. Girls Rock camp uses curriculum that not only provides music education for girls, but is also focused on girls empowerment. The program features music classes as well as classes in a variety of different topics ranging from zine making to music business to music history. Girls Rock Camp bring sin local musicians to work with and teach the girls. Last session the girls got work with Belaire, Ume, and my favorite...Girl in a Coma.
If you are in the area, be sure to stop by and support Girls Rock Camp. Here's more links and info:
