This is the HUGE 10th Anniversary celebration for the wonderful folks at Girls Rock NC, who have taught countless girls to speak up & rock out over the past decade. This thing runs all day & all night, with a one-day crash course in what Girls Rock NC is all about at the ArtsCenter starting at 11 a.m., and most of the rockbanding (including more bands than I could list above) happening at the Cradle starting at 6:00 p.m.

You can get all the details here.
