Girls Rock! DC benefit at Acre 121 on June 2

This sounds like fun. Girls Rock! DC is a group that holds music camps for girls, with instruction on instruments and singing, plus lessons about the history of women in music, promoting bands, gender, conflict resolution and more. It's a pretty cool group, and a fun-sounding event.
Acre 121 to host second annual Girls Rock! DC benefit show June 2
Anti girl-band Mzry Loves Company will headline alongside DC dancerock band Glitterlust at Acre 121 on Saturday, June 2 as part of a six-band showcase that will raise money for this summer's annual Girls Rock! DC music camp for young women.
The show begins at 9 p.m. and will feature a bevy of lady rockers who play all styles, from acoustic and rock to dance and hip-hop. This year's line-up also includes acoustic duo Frankie & Betty, Baltimore-based blues trio More AM Than FM, seasoned alt-rock band G.U.T.S. with Tiik, and Nikki Smith with members of her band J Street. 
Smith, who organizes dozens of shows around the city that highlight talented female artists – including Phase 1's monthly open mic and a local Ladies of Rock showcase – created Band Camp Benefit last year as a way for a growing community of female musicians to support GR!DC's efforts to inspire and empower the next generation of lady rockers.
Volunteers from GR!DC will be collecting a suggested donation of $10 at the door, and 100 percent of proceeds will go directly toward their weeklong music camp, now in its fifth year, that culminates with a camper showcase at 9:30 Club.
