About this Fundraising Event
Riot for Rock Camp is an opportunity for musicians of all abilities to participate in a band, experience performing, and connect with like-minded individuals in a safe format for those who may traditionally feel excluded or underrepresented in their music community. The event will take the format of a “rock lottery,” whereby participants are randomly assigned to a band for the day and tasked with writing and rehearsing a set to be performed that night. This format mimics the structure of Girls Rock Camp Victoria’s summer camp program and in the same gesture, hopes to continue to disrupt established norms regarding what a band is or can be.
Participants will assemble at 8:00 a.m. on the morning of Saturday April 13 2019 at Subculture Club to arrange themselves into bands. Bands will have until approximately 6:00 p.m. to write and rehearse a set of songs (maximum one cover song, all other songs must be originals) that will then be performed that night. Set times should run no longer than 25 minutes, but can be as short as 10 minutes. At 6:30 p.m., participants will reassemble at Subculture Club. Set order will be determined according to a random draw. Performance will be open to the public, all ages, and by donation from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Proceeds will be donated to Girls Rock Camp Victoria Society in support of its summer camp program.
- Be available between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. on April 13 2019; and
- Identify as a woman, trans, or non-binary person over the age of 16
