The crew of Girls Rock Vermont joined guest host Johnny Powell on Rocket Shop tonight:
I was stoked to guest host Rocket Shop again, this time with co-host Wylla Skye. We talked about our upcoming fundraiser in City Hall Park for the Solar Sister Project. We’re opening a nonprofit, solar-powered music venue and community space. The event is 2pm-8pm on Saturday, May 26th in the park. Music. Yoga. Food. Face painting. Massage. We got it all. More info is at www.solarsistervt.com
Then we met up with Christine Mathias and Naomi Gallmidi to talk about Girls Rock Vermont, a summer camp open to 8-18 year-old girls that want to learn music. It’s not just for rockers. Hip Hop, Country, and any other genre is part of this wonderful camp that helps break down stereotypes and the affects of media. It’s July 30th-August 4th and more info is at www.girlsrockvt.org.
Thanks to Christine, Naomi, Wylla, and Big Heavy World for another great Rocket Shop.
