Pins & Needles - Girl in The City

Community service should always be this fun. Once again, kudos to The Garrison for hosting this seasonal fundraiser, with the back room taken over by a clothing swap while bands played to kids and adults alike in the front. And huge props to Girls Rock Camp, who have expanded from summer sessions to an after school program launching in the new year as well as a March Break camp.

The most exciting set of the afternoon came early on with Pins & Needles showing how Girls Rock Camp is enriching the musical ecosystem. GRC Alumni who stuck together as friends and bandmates after their camp session, the band just recently successfully closed out a crowdsourcing campaign to record their first album. Onstage, they mix that evergreen "Gloria" guitar chug with zaggling keytar lines and accomplished vocal interplay, tossing off catchy bursts of fun. [The group will be playing at CineCycle on Saturday, January 31, 2015.]

[There's lots of ways to show your support for Girls Rock Camp — the compilation of bands from last summer's campers is now available, and it will be celebrated with an all-ages launch party at Smiling Buddha on February 7, 2015.]
