Girls ages 10-17 come from around the state for a frenetic week of songwriting, headbanging, and self-esteem building; by the time they perform their original songs at the final showcase (held on illustrious local stages like Emo's East), they have become a relentless tornado of confidence and optimism. Girls Rock Austin celebrated its fifth year by adding a new week of Junior Girls Rock Camp for girls ages 7-9 and continuing sponsorship of the Esme Barrera Unlimited Possibilities Scholarship, created in tribute to one of GRCA's most devoted and beloved volunteers. What better city to groom a generation of assertive, positive rock stars onstage and off than the live music capital of the world?
