Our vocalist came to us a month or two ago with an opportunity to play for Rock Camp for Girls, a local week-long day camp that teaches instruments and songwriting to girls age 8-17. They bring in bands to play and do Q&As during lunch. Now, I have a biochem degree, and in college I did a lot of stuff with the Society of Women Engineers, working to get young women interested in maths and science. The way I see it, women young and old get discouraged from science a lot, and the local music scene isn't exactly kind to them either, so this is a no brainer for me. Same for the rest of our band. Between then and the performance, we lost our drummer and rhythm guitarist. No major losses, the guitar player wasn't musically that great and the drummer had only one setting: loud. So we workshop everything down into one guitar or keys, bass, and vocals, and we do the show. They had a lot of interesting questions: does it hurt to scream-sing, when did you first start liking rock, why does your guitar/bass have 8/10 strings, etc. And at the end, they all came up with these little paper booklets and got autographs. It was so gosh darned cute. Today is their showcase, where each group plays the song(s?) they wrote this week. Not 100% sure I'll be able to go, but it was a fun experience.
