SUGAR TOWN BENEFIT FOR GIRLS ROCK PHILLY SAT 5/26
Tritone, 1508 South Street 9PM, 21+
$5-8 (sliding scale)

GIRLS ROCK PHILLY (GRP) is an initiative to bring Philadelphia a girls only, week-long summer day camp serving junior rockers ages 10-18, to be held August 6 to 11, 2007. Led by a team of all female instructors and band coaches,n the program learn how to play musical instruments, write songs, make their own band merchandise, discover other women in and finesse their on-stage jump kicks.

SHOOTING ROPES (Featuring Steph Hayes and Lotsix)
Steph Hayes also plays with The Good Problems, is a former member of Stargazer Lily, and has toured with Slo-Mo. Lotsix is a “self-karaoke artist,” who writes great songs about having crushes on Sara Gilbert and Kathleen Hanna. You might also know her from Mr. Drag King Philly competitions, The Broken Hipsters, and Brothers Suggarillo.

BAPTIST PREACHERS
This is the latest project for John Cecil Price (Temple of Bon Matin and Akash), which City Paper’s A.D. Amorosi describes as “pop/surf/R&B done hardcore.” A bi-racial and multicultural labor of love married to its own form of Black Americana-punk , soul and early gospel music, Baptist Preachers is God’s loudest band.

THE STAY-AT-HOMES (Runaways tribute band featuring Tammy Faye Starlite and mems of Sit N’ Spin, NYC)

The Stay-At-Homes are “The Desperate Housewives Of Rock.” Come see the (only?) East Coast Runaways tribute band. Okay, they’re not teens, but they’re still hot. Even though they may be too tired and jaded to run away and maybe would rather stay home and play with the kids, grade papers, practice law, walk the dog, or watch SVU, they still rock.

The Stay-At-Homes are:
Mony Falcone (Sit N’ Spin) as Jackie Fox, bass
Heidi Lieb (Sit N’ Spin) as Lita Ford, lead guitar
Linda Pitmon (Steve Wynn’s Miracle 3) as Sandy West, drums
Jill Richmond (The Mike Hunt Band, Aquanettas) as Joan Jett, rhythm guitar
Tammy Faye Starlite (The Mike Hunt Band) as Cherie Currie, lead vocals

C’mon spend an American night with the new Queens of Noise. They’ll play a glittering rock-and-roll set of classic Runaways songs, then get you home not that late.

LIBERTY CITY KINGS (Featuring Richard B Grande/Nicola Visaggio)
As seen at Dragadelphia and Philadelphians Against Santorum, the recently formed Liberty City Kings are always looking for old hands and new tricks with style, personality and flair. Their shows are equal parts drag, burlesque, political satire/commentary, and raunchy good times.

DJ’s VERSION GIRL & CARRY US
A lady reggae DJ duo that plays everything from ska and rocksteady to dub to modern dancehall.
