Girls Rock! Benefit Explosion

Gabe’s — Friday, July 17 at 6 p.m.

Gabe’s is set to host a benefit concert for Girls Rock! this Friday at 6 p.m.

The event, dubbed Girls Rock Benefit Explosion, will feature six rock bands — Croaker, Arcade at Midnight, Hot Tang, Tub Girl, ConeTrauma, Maiden Mars — all of which feature kickass female musicians across a variety of rock styles.

Money raised from the event will go in support of Girls Rock! Iowa City, which works to foster girls’ creative expression, positive self-esteem, and community awareness through music education. Designed for girls ages 8 to 16, the program teaches young girls about the musical, technical and creative aspects of musicianship.

The benefit concert costs $5, but further donations are encouraged. Doors open at 5 p.m.
