Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 11.4.10





.This Week's Calendar | Galleries | Music @ the Clubs

Deadline for Calendar and Art in the Galleries submissions are noon on Thursday, a week before the issue that covers your event. Send an e-mail with event, date, time, location and cost to attend to cal@eugeneweekly.com

The month-long GRRRLZ ROCK! Festival, which pays tribute to all of those fabulous female artists out there, will invade Cozmic Pizza this Saturday for the festival’s fourth stop. The night will feature eight chicks (and groups of chicks) getting down artistically in order to promote and celebrate the growth and participation of women in the realms of music and arts. Among Saturday’s featured artists will be Gemiinii Riisiing (pictured), a single, awesome female known for her skill when it comes to rocking out. She’s previously found her way (with ease) around Zeppelin and Tool covers—to name a couple—and there’s sure to be more rock in store; also featured will be Sub Pilots, The Refreshments and more. With the price set at $1 or three cans of food, why would anyone want to miss this celebration of grrrlz who rock?
