If you like live music, value for money and helping a good cause, then Backbone Youth Arts is the place to be tomorrow (Saturday, July 13) when 13 bands hit the stage for Girls Rock! Fest. Presented by Girls Rock! Brisbane, the all ages festival will feature bands such as Whalehouse, Some Jerks, The Stress of Leisure, Guava Lava and The Cutaways.
Girls Rock! Brisbane (GR!BNE) provides positive female-led musical instruction and a variety of workshops and performances with a mission to empower girls and women by building self-esteem and confidence through music education and performance. All proceeds from the Girls Rock! Fest will help fund scholarship positions for the GR!BNE September 2019 program.
Hosted by Backbone Youth Arts, the music will kick off from 12.00pm and will continue uninterrupted across two stages until 8.00pm. Located at 38 Lytton Road, East Brisbane (the former East Brisbane Bowls Club), Backbone is a youth arts organisation that fosters learning and creativity through a year-round schedule of programs that includes workshops, performances, festivals, resources and training.
